Cloud Data Protection and Disaster Recovery Services for NetApp Users
There’s no good time for unexpected downtime in today’s always-on climate.
Even a single hour without critical data or applications can lead to lost revenue

data backup and disaster recovery (DR) capabilities. Yet IT leaders must
also control costs and support high-value business activities.
Iron Mountain® Server Backup, powered by Seagate® has the solution: purpose-built
cloud data protection and DR services designed specifically for NetApp® storage
environments. Ensure your business can weather any disruption or unplanned
outage, while protecting and extending the value of your NetApp investments.
Cost-Effective Cloud Data Protection Services for NetApp
A comprehensive business resiliency strategy begins with robust and reliable
data backup and recovery. The Data Protection Service for NetApp enables
NetApp customers using SnapVault® to protect critical data with an affordable
and predictable pay-as-you-go model and no upfront capital investments. A
fraction of the cost of legacy onsite solutions, the Data Protection Service for
NetApp makes it easy to protect your data without blowing your budget.
Fast, Efficient, and Reliable Data Backup and Recovery
The Data Protection Service for NetApp eliminates the
litany of pains imposed by legacy backup solutions.
With legacy systems, bandwidth constraints lead to missed
backup windows; tape backups are nearly impossible to
automate, difficult to restore and vulnerable to data loss,
even with regular testing. Deduplication backup appliances
add to a company’s upfront CapEx, and manual backup
tasks sidetrack IT professionals from focusing on more
Based on NetApp storage technology, this cloud-based
backup and recovery subscription service compresses and
transmits data over a secure encrypted tunnel to a secure
data center using NetApp SnapVault.
IT organizations cut backup times from hours to minutes
and ensure a fast, reliable, efficient data recovery process
in the event of a disruption. The Data Protection Service for
NetApp also eliminates upfront costs and CapEx. You pay
only for the resources you use.
Implementing the service is simple: the initial seed is
performed using specific DAS devices, and the data
is secured, returned and loaded into a vFiler on the
designated platform. The service uses NetApp storage
hardware and software exclusively, with no new equipment
to buy and no new skills or staffing required.

Data protection is necessary for business resiliency, but it’s

an enterprise-grade alternative to legacy, do-it-yourself DR
solutions. This complete, cloud-based continuity service,

Proactive Failover: Protection for Planned Outages
The Cloud Disaster Recovery Service for NetApp does more
than just protect against unplanned outages. IT groups
can also use the service to cover planned outages: When
you need to take the system down for maintenance or
upgrades, the production environment will failover to the
secure cloud, allowing protected applications to function
seamlessly during the downtime window.
Dependable, Cost-Effective Disaster Recovery in the Cloud
Many firms run backup data centers, at branch offices or
colocation facilities, to provide disaster recovery services.
Yet this approach often fails to meet its objectives: IT
organizations seeking greater control over DR activities at
a lower cost are instead saddled with inadequate testing,
unwanted complexity and escalating costs associated with
hardware capital expenses.
The Cloud Disaster Recovery Service for NetApp is a better
way to restore critical business applications. This solution
uses NetApp SnapMirror technology to replicate critical
systems from your data center to the cloud in real time,
and it also provides cloud-based compute and networking
capabilities to deliver a complete business resiliency
solution. If a disaster or unplanned outage occurs, the
recovery machines will spin up within a selected 1-hour
or 24-hour SLA window, and your IT team gets secure
access via a remote SSL VPN to your recovered data and
The service is also tested before it is activated, ensuring a
successful post-disaster recovery process. After successful
testing, you’ll get a step-by-step Disaster Declaration Card
and a fully documented, custom DR plan tailored to your
applications and business needs.
The Cloud Disaster Recovery Service for NetApp eliminates
costly CapEx hardware investments and colocation
contracts. Your company benefits from predictable payas-
you-go pricing, support from a first-rate team of DR
and NetApp experts and the ability to adjust quickly and
flawlessly as your application recovery needs evolve. By
using secure multi-tenancy, and shared and virtualized
resources, your organization also benefits from lower
OpEx — without sacrificing security or performance.
