If your organisation is wrestling with increased cost and complexity in backup, or you find yourself locked into outdated proprietary solutions, Northdoor offers a revolutionary managed service. Built on Cobalt Iron Adaptive Data Protection (ADP), itself built on IBM Spectrum Protect, technology, the Northdoor managed service for backup provides a unified, SaaS-based enterprise data protection solution for on-premises, virtual, hybrid and cloud workloads. The solution provides Write Once Read Many (WORM) capabilities as standard, boosting confidence in the immutability of backups (which is potentially soon to be an audit requirement for financial services firms).
Powered by analytics-driven automation and featuring proactive problem resolution, the Northdoor solution can reduce both capital and operational costs by as much as 50 percent. ADP includes a first-of-its-kind VTL feature that transforms the virtual tape library into an integrated component of an end-to-end enterprise data protection solution. This enables it to replace ProtecTIER environments with ease, and the solution also supports native IBM i backup routines, without any loss of control at the local level.
As a SaaS solution, ADP provides hands-free updates to ensure that software is always current and patched, avoiding the need for costly, risky and time-consuming upgrades. Consumption-based pricing means you pay only for what you actually use and no longer need to over-provision capacity.
In many cases, Northdoor can configure the managed service to work with your existing storage and backup solutions until they reach end of life. In this way, the solution enables a smooth, low-risk migration from proprietary solutions to a more open and flexible approach.
