Cobalt Iron Tackles Data Protection with Hybrid Solution
Backup and recovery are so 2012. The new trend is data protection, a discipline that approaches data integrity from the front end, seeking to harden and secure data from the moment it's created.
Cobalt Iron is the latest entry in this market. Its namesake product includes an on-premise automated backup and archiving solution that integrates with a cloud backup infrastructure. Cobalt Iron is a single solution with flexible deployment options that include public cloud, accelerated cloud, private on-site and hosted. Customers can mix and match the options to achieve the benefits of local data storage and also the peace of mind of cloud services.
