HubStor Releases Virtual Machine Backup Solution for VMware vSphere

HubStor | May 22, 2020

HubStor Releases Virtual Machine Backup Solution for VMware vSphere
  • HubStor’s virtual machine backup solution for vSphere delivers simplified backup policy administration and monitoring, fully-integrated encryption, replication, and low-cost cloud storage.

  • HubStor’s shared BaaS model offers a lower entry price for customers that just want HubStor’s virtual machine backup capabilities.

  • The HubStor virtual machine backup product is just like the rest of their software: It is fast, simple, reliable, and has an extremely small infrastructure footprint.


HubStor, a leading provider of cloud data management, announced the availability of its Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) offering for VMware vSphere virtual machine backup, replication, and archival. HubStor’s announcement comes as the company ramps up the expansion of its unified backup and archive platform, providing organizations a cost-efficient approach to replacing legacy point products with a modern cloud data platform.

HubStor’s virtual machine backup solution for vSphere delivers simplified backup policy administration and monitoring, fully-integrated encryption, replication, and low-cost cloud storage.

With traditional backup offerings, a customer must license the software, then configure and manage secondary and offsite backup storage themselves. HubStor’s cloud-first approach enables customers to specify a small local cache for fast access to their most recent backup set. At the same time, HubStor maintains an immutable cloud replica automatically, achieving the 3-2-1 gold standard for data protection effortlessly. For long-term retention of backup sets, HubStor offers in-cloud backup and tiering options to preserve backups on ultra-low-cost cloud archive storage with geo-replication.

With the rising threat of ransomware that can target backups, organizations need to protect their backups with immutable storage. HubStor provides write-once-read-many (WORM) storage for all backups, seamlessly ensuring that any malicious encryption of local backups will not be a business-impacting event. Customers have the flexibility with HubStor to recover virtual machines to any on-premises and cloud infrastructure.

 

HubStor is firmly planting its flag in the backup market with this release. Our differentiation is threefold: a streamlined user experience, simplified infrastructure for customers through Software-as-a-Service, and highly-competitive pricing,

Geoff Bourgeois, CEO, and co-founder at HubStor.



HubStor recommends dedicated BaaS instances for enterprise customers that need advanced security, data sovereignty controls, unlimited performance scalability, and scale-out expansion into HubStor’s other offerings such as file system tiering, Office 365 backup, journaling, and content archiving. Pricing for a dedicated instance starts at $335 per month, with monthly storage costs ranging from $0.003 to $0.03 per gigabyte after deduplication and compression savings.

HubStor’s shared BaaS model offers a lower entry price for customers that just want HubStor’s virtual machine backup capabilities. Pricing in the shared instance starts at $50 per month, scaling after that as a cost per gigabyte of storage. Backup storage costs in HubStor’s shared BaaS offering range from $0.003 to $0.03 per gigabyte monthly depending on the type of storage, with customers having full control over the storage tiering and retention of their backups.

 

The HubStor virtual machine backup product is just like the rest of their software: It is fast, simple, reliable, and has an extremely small infrastructure footprint. One exciting feature is that it integrates directly with the SaaS management dashboard and storage accounts of our other HubStor products in use (file tiering and Office 365 backup). We look forward to seeing HubStor’s virtual machine backup go general availability so that we can replace our expensive and extraordinarily complex backup product currently in use,

Ryan Reichart, Manager, Infrastructure Systems at Axon.



HubStor’s 15-minute setup process of the agentless HubStor Backup Service allows IT administrators to begin reliable protection of their virtual machines without undertaking a time-consuming onboarding and set up process.

VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services is now IRAP assessed

VMware | August 16, 2021

VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been tested by an information security registered assessors program (IRAP) against information security manual (ISM) protected controls. Computer software company VMware says the assessment covers the VMware Cloud on AWS, a jointly-engineered service from AWS and VMware. The VMware Cloud on AWS assessment can unlock further transformation within government by enabling customers to migrate apps rapidly, scale resources up or down based on demand, deliver resources for new remote work initiatives, and drive app modernisation strategies. “It’s critical that the public sector not only has access to technology and services to enable transformation, but that they have confidence in its security in order to maintain data safety and meet compliance requirements. We are continuously innovating to help our customers meet their business needs,” explains VMware Australia and New Zealand senior director cloud Mike Reddie. “We’re pleased that our IRAP protected status will further broaden access to VMware Cloud on AWS, to support public sector customers in delivering flexible, resilient digital citizen services,” Reddie says. VMware Cloud on AWS delivers an integrated hybrid cloud solution that extends on-premises vSphere environments to a VMware software-defined data centre (vSphere, vSAN, and NSX Data Centre) running on Amazon elastic compute cloud (Amazon EC2) elastic, bare-metal infrastructure. The service is fully-integrated as part of AWS and optimised with AWS services. The assessed service provides public sector customers the opportunity to accelerate their cloud migration and support business resiliency while maintaining operational consistency with their on-prem environments.
