Backup & Restore

Strong, robust, efficient

EBR demands fast and efficient data storage and retrieval functionality. To minimize costly interruptions, outages, and service level penalties, you also need a data storage infrastructure that’s flexible, scalable, easy to use, interoperable with other technologies, and most importantly economical. Tape backup and less performant disk-based solutions are anything but economical when viewed in light of return on investment and total cost of ownership.

OpenDrives' EBR solution

OpenDrives’ Ultra hardware platform and Atlas OS work seamlessly with your EBR software by incorporating enterprise-grade NAS storage that doesn’t lock you into proprietary technical solutions or vendor approaches. Our high-performance storage and compute capabilities driven by Atlas OS can greatly improve your overall EBR operations while also serving as a launching pad to upgrading your general-purpose enterprise storage infrastructure.

The challenges with legacy solutions

Tape is still a go-to target for basic data backup, restore, and archiving, as are slower spinning-disk solutions. These approaches may get the job done, if all you’re trying to do is perform basic backup and disaster recovery.

However, if your goal is to reduce operational expenses and lengthy EBR cycles while also accelerating your business and modernizing its IT infrastructure, legacy EBR is not the answer. With tape-based and slower disk-based solutions, you face the following problems:

  • Slow speeds that run the risk of incurring costly SLA penalties due to restoration delays or operational headaches when time-to-restore is critical
  • The need for manual intervention that complicates management and oversight efforts
  • Hidden costs that negatively affect ROI, TCO, and solution longevity
  • Reduced reliability and increased chance of data corruption or loss
  • Complex interfaces that aren’t very usable

Our solution overcomes the challenges

OpenDrives has a more efficient, cost-effective, and high-performance approach to EBR infrastructure. We design our hardware platform to greatly exceed minimum operational requirements and support multiple types of storage targets, with a focus on outperformance in every functional metric:

  • Based on enterprise-grade disk storage with software-powered automation 
  • Immediate cost benefits upon deployment with reduced operational costs throughout its lifecycle due to ease of use and management
  • Extreme scale-up capabilities with highly dependable, fully checksummed data integrity
  • Atlas OS supports running and automating your EBR software as a containerized application
  • Serves as a general-purpose storage target for any peripheral system in the data center with standard protocol support (SMB, NFS, and S3) for a more open storage ecosystem
  • Turn-key implementation service and flawless deployment execution

OpenDrives EBR Workflow

What makes us different

Quite a few things set us apart. Our storage solutions are used in some of the most data-intensive industries with incredibly complex workflows, so we know how to create ultra-high-performance storage solutions that are also easy to use, manage, and integrate. But we also pay close attention to other details.

  • Our Ultra storage solutions incorporate compute capabilities that enable you to run containerized applications directly on the storage solution, eliminating the need for additional server resources
  • We are laser-focused on customer experience and satisfaction, developing tight consultative partnerships with our enterprise customers
  • We collaborate with our customers to co-design and implement the right solution the first time
  • Our implementations are turn-key and delivered with white-glove treatment
  • We achieve incredible financial savings over tape-based solutions, often meeting or exceeding 40–50% total savings over our tape-based competitors’ solutions
