DRaaS/BaaS - Umbra

Cydg5aNWEAE4buF.jpgUnified Managed Backup and Recovery Appliance (Umbra) is a Disaster Recovery as a Service and Back-up as a Service (DRaaS/BaaS) service that provides enterprise class VMware, AWS and HyperV backup functionality using a local appliance (UmbraStor) or a external cloud based storage repository in either a trusted Integrative Core Datacenter (ICD) or on the public (Amazon) cloud.

With a local appliance, UmbraStor, it will safely store up to 2 Petabyte1 of VMware backup data in no more than 8U of rack space. The appliance is composed of enterprise class server hardware and the best in class Nakivo backup software on top of our trusted and flexible ZFS storage architecture. Your backups remain safe and on site.

To safeguard your backup data against location based disasters you can easily replicate your backup data to either;

  • Another UmbraStor appliance in another site in your network

  • To a trusted Integrative Core Datacenter (ICD)

  • To the Amazon Cloud

All whist the Integrative NOC keeps a close watch on your Umbra backup system integrity and reliability alerting you when action is required.

To further protect your VMware, HyperV or AWS environment, Umbra can replicate your virtual machines to a clone in either your own datacenter or to an Integrative Core Datacenter. This allows for shorter Recovery Time Objectives in your Disaster Recovery plan whilst keeping the costs in check.
