Object First Introduces Ransomware-proof Storage Appliance

Object First launches Ootbi, a backup storage appliance designed for Veeam Software, a leader in modern data protection. Ransomware-proof with out-of-the-box immutability, Ootbi delivers simple, powerful and affordable backup storage that can be racked, stacked and powered in 15 minutes. Designed and optimized for maximum backup performance and instant recovery, Ootbi provides ingest speeds up to 4GB/s.

“The ability to store massive amounts of unstructured data has led to object storage becoming the de facto choice for cloud storage, but current on-premises solutions aren’t optimized for backup and recovery. This makes data management options unnecessarily complex and expensive, requiring more resources and overhead,” said David Bennett, CEO at Object First. “We have a vision for a backup appliance that ransomware proofs Veeam backups with out-of-the-box immutability without sacrificing performance and simplicity to meet budget constraints.”

Even with the best possible protection and detection measures in place, ransomware attacks are expected to increase. Modern organizations know that it is only a matter of time before they are targeted with an incident. Proper backup and recovery strategies leverage out-of-the-box immutable storage that does not need in-house security expertise.

Ootbi provides ransomware resiliency that is simple to deploy, manage and scale. The appliance delivers an immutable primary object storage target for on-premises Veeam backups, leveraging the trademarked Veeam Backup & Replication v12 Smart Object Storage API (SOSAPI) to deliver powerful performance.

Capabilities include:

  • Out-of-the-box immutability for Veeam
  • Factory-hardened operating system
  • Racked, stacked, and powered in minutes
  • Linearly scale performance and capacity by adding additional nodes
  • Supercharged Veeam Instant Recovery

Ootbi is generally available through its channel partner ecosystem. For more information about the company, its solutions and more, visit www.objectfirst.com.
