Back up to hyperscale cloud services with data protector

Solving the cloud conundrum

The emergence of hyperscale cloud solutions such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 and Microsoft Azure is giving organizations around the world access to flexible and low-cost data storage. These services have also provided a new and easy way for enterprises to retain data away from their sites without having to build secondary data centers or rent capacity within specialized facilities. This is critical to any disaster recovery plan.
However, there have been limitations in using these services for backing up and recovering data - especially for large enterprises with complex environments, large files, and older data.
Two key issues are speed and cost. It can take an unacceptable amount of time to upload data to cloud storage solutions for safekeeping, unless organizations are prepared to spend heavily on network capacity. It can also take too long to download data when it's needed to restore a failed system the organization depends on for its day-to-day operation. In addition, users typically incur extra charges when downloading data from cloud services, adding to costs.
