Long-term data shouldn’t be
spread across storage silos

Managing long-term data retention across storage tiers is expensive and difficult.  Especially as your retention periods grow — your business expands locations or becomes subject to regional storage requirements — and as you begin to migrate, run, in addition to protect applications in the cloud. Visibility into backup, storage, and compliance costs, as well as overall infrastructure utilization is frequently poor, particularly when managing long-term retention with on-premises infrastructure spread across multiple locations. And yet, simply moving backup data to cold storage in the cloud does little to improve visibility and often results in surprise costs and a new storage tier to manage.

Remove costs, complexity, and risk from long-term data retention

Single-click, policy-driven enablement of cloud data retention across Amazon S3 storage tiers ensures resilience and the option to back up directly to cold storage offers up to 50% savings. Make your cloud storage and retention costs predictable with simple consumption-based pricing and no egress charges.
