​Fujitsu bolsters data protection portfolio with new Hybrid IT solutions

"IT buyers are focused on easy-to-integrate Cloud offerings that combine the benefits of Cloud with existing assets."

Fujitsu has launched its Fujitsu Cloud Backup as a Service Rapid Recovery Appliance, designed to enhance the globally available Fujitsu Cloud Backup as a Service (BaaS) solution across enterprise.

This pre-configured solution aims to provide the “flexible data protection approach needed in a hybrid IT model” where business processes are supported by a mixture of on-premise and external Cloud services.

In addition, it combines backup and recovery appliances with Cloud-based backup strategies, such as pay-as-you-grow pricing and data security.

“With an ever-increasing trend toward consuming IT via a Cloud service delivery model, IT buyers are focused on easy-to-integrate cloud offerings that combine the benefits of Cloud with existing assets,” says James Jefferd, Global Offering Manager, Fujitsu.

“The Fujitsu BaaS Rapid Recovery Appliance does this and means clients can replace traditional on-site, tape-based backup with disk-based solutions that are agile, scalable, simple to use and secure.

“Combining the capability of the Fujitsu Cloud-based service with the new appliance delivers a very flexible backup architecture that can be managed from anywhere yet be highly distributed.”

According to Gartner, public Cloud options are becoming increasingly considered for server workloads, especially for remote-office and departmental computing environments.

“While most organisations cite concerns over security as their top Cloud issue, the greater issue is often latency, as data encryption and key management are well-established methods for protecting off-site backup data,” adds Dave Russell, research analyst, Gartner.

“This means that an on-premises, local copy of the data, or at least the most recent backup of the most critical data, is best practice. Thus, a disk-to-disk-to-Cloud [D2D2C] model is emerging.”
