Enhancing FlexPod with DobiProtect allows users to protect file and object data anywhere.
Leuven, Belgium – November 10, 2020 – Datadobi, the global leader in unstructured data management software, today announced that its DobiProtect® offering is now part of Westcon’s ONESource FlexPod solutions. The integrated technology offers the broadest support for any cloud strategy and improved operational efficiency to accelerate data center transformation and business evolution.
Built on groundbreaking technology from vendors, including NetApp and Cisco, FlexPod simplifies and modernizes IT with continuous innovation, delivering unmatched application performance to customers globally. The integration of DobiProtect into the Westcon FlexPod solution enables an immediate and reliable way to access your most business-critical network-attached storage (NAS) and object storage data, on-premises or in the cloud, to mitigate disruptions if cyberthreats, ransomware, accidental deletions, or software vulnerabilities occur.
Protecting business-critical data from ransomware, corruption, insider threats, and human error (for example, accidental deletion), DobiProtect allows organizations to easily and cost effectively create a “golden copy” of their business-critical file and object data in its native form across heterogeneous platforms. This golden copy enables companies to quickly restore their unstructured data when serious disruptions occur and to maintain the highest standards of business continuity.
FlexPod is a proven architecture that enables users to dramatically reduce capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operational expenditures (OPEX) through data center efficiencies, easily scale up or out to meet future needs, and accelerate cloud deployment while reducing risk. By optimizing multiple application workloads, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations, and secure multitenancy environments, organizations can compress application development and deployment timelines.
“FlexPod leverages best-in-class technologies to increase business agility while lowering deployment risks, accelerating application deployment, and reducing TCO by leveraging the efficiencies of a shared infrastructure,” commented Andy Milburn, Regional Director of APJ at Datadobi. “By integrating Datadobi technology into Westcon’s solutions, we are providing customers with the industry’s most powerful data protection capabilities to support any cloud strategy.”
“Westcon is excited to be bringing our partners an integrated solution like DobiProtect with FlexPod. This offer enables an immediate and reliable way for customers to access their most business-critical NAS and object storage data, on-premises or in the cloud, to mitigate disruptions if cyberthreats, ransomware, accidental deletions, or software vulnerabilities occur,” said Patrick Aronson, executive vice president, Asia Pacific at Westcon-Comstor.
The Westcon FlexPod solution stack has been built to assist users in building a zero-trust workload environment. Utilizing best-of-breed products, it provides a stable and secure end-to-end data center solution available to users anywhere they are working, based on both traditional and cloud environments.
