Cobalt Iron Inc., a provider of cloud-based data protection, is simplifying the task of managing multiple storage and data protection technologies with the company's Adaptive Data Protection™ platform. Through automation, continual analytics-based optimisation, and orchestration of technologies and operations, the Cobalt Iron Adaptive Data Protection platform delivers a unified enterprise data protection experience. Cost-effectively leverage Vendors in the competitive storage and data protection market continue to deliver new features "Instead of dealing separately with the thousands of features, knobs, and levers of multiple storage and backup technologies, data administrators working with Cobalt Iron Adaptive Data Protection can efficiently and cost-effectively leverage those technologies through a unified experience," said Greg Tevis, vice president of strategy at Cobalt Iron. "No longer distracted by the ongoing demands of different technologies, Adaptive Data Protection users can maintain their focus on business service levels." Vendors in the highly competitive storage and data protection market continue to deliver new features, simpler product interfaces, and other technology options, but each of these technologies has its own interfaces — graphical user interfaces (GUIs), application programming interfaces (APIs), command line interfaces (CLIs), industry standard protocols and interfaces, and more. Complex backup infrastructure Server, storage, networking, converged hardware, and backup products all come with their own associated capabilities, software, and tools; the business applications that need their data protected have their own capabilities, interfaces, and tools for management; and cloud services add further capabilities and management tools to the mix. Adaptive Data Protection allows effective leveraging and optimisation of technologies" As a result, data administrators face a morass of operational complexities, underutilised and unoptimised infrastructure, silos of management, and soaring costs for data management and backup that collide with limited IT budgets. "Adaptive Data Protection allows effective leveraging and optimisation of technologies while saving companies money," added Tevis. "It transforms complex backup infrastructure and operations into a first-class IT service." Data protection technologies In addition to automating most of the maintenance and operational tasks associated with storage and data protection technologies, Adaptive Data Protection continually analyses and optimises both infrastructure technologies as well as operations, resulting in improved utilisation of resources and reduced costs. The platform orchestrates myriad technologies and presents the administrator with a single unified data protection experience for workloads and technologies wherever they may be. The Adaptive Data Protection platform is unique in enabling orchestration across data protection systems, and Cobalt Iron continues to expand its automation and orchestration of various data protection technologies, including on-premises and cloud snapshotting techniques.
Cobalt Iron Inc., a provider of cloud-based data protection, announces that the company's Adaptive Data Protection (ADP) platform is providing customers with the benefits of SAP Certified Integration for SAP HANA. The ADP solution was one of the first in the market to leverage the SAP HANA APIs, and it is empowering Cobalt Iron customers — including a worldwide manufacturer, a large energy corporation, and a food distributor — to protect large and complex SAP HANA environments. SAP HANA certified integration "SAP HANA users leveraging Cobalt Iron's ADP can rest easy knowing they are working with the most mature, comprehensive, and highest-scaling SAP HANA certified integration available," said Greg Tevis, vice president of global strategy for Cobalt Iron. "SAP HANA is just one of many enterprise workloads for which Cobalt Iron ADP provides integrated protection, but it's clearly important to many of our customers, given the ongoing growth of the SAP HANA database management system as a preferred platform." Business-critical database platform SAP HANA continues to be a popular and business-critical database platform for numerous business solutions, and the protection of those solutions and their associated data is vital to many companies. Cobalt Iron customers enjoy the power of ADP protection for SAP HANA environments, benefiting not just from comprehensive SAP HANA backup and recovery, but also from automation and Analytics-Based Optimisation of SAP HANA data protection operations. The Cobalt Iron ADP SaaS platform modernises backup, delivering the features and scale of enterprise data protection along with the flexibility and economics of cloud consumption. ADP eliminates complexity, reduces management, scales easily from terabytes to exabytes, and provides the simplicity absent in today's backup technologies and tools.
