CloudCover Object Storage

The Cloud Computing experts

Reduce your IT costs, free space on your primary storage and align your 3-2-1 backup strategy with CloudCover Object Storage.

Supreme object storage and data archiving that works around your organisation.

Businesses are now creating more unstructured data than ever before and this is leaving IT managers with the overwhelming challenge of managing, protecting and recovering this data… while also keeping costs low.

As data grows, so do the storage requirements and many businesses are walking the fine line between risking data loss and investing in costly internal storage solutions.

With CloudCover Object Storage your organisation can store data off-site, in one of our data centres and access the superior benefits of object storage, without the costly investment.

Success with the 3-2-1 backup rule

The recommended 3-2-1 backup rule ensures data is recoverable should an incident occur, and
states organisations should have…

Three copies of data: An organisation should always have
access to three copies of its data. One of these should be the
original content, followed by at least two backups.

Two different storage types: The two copies should be kept on at least two separate storage types. Hardware deteriorates over time and storing two copies on different mediums significantly lowers the risk of data loss.

ONE copy of data off-site: At least one backup of this data should be stored in an off-site location to ensure natural and geographical incidents, such as flooding, fires or power outages don’t prevent data recovery.

An off-site backup also acts as an additional layer of protection against Ransomware. Ransomware crawls through an infected network to find and encrypt data, but as the off-site backup is detached from the network, it is unreachable. When an infection takes hold, this backup remains untouched and can be accessed for fast data restoration.

Leading bodies and industry experts follow the 3-2-1 rule as best practice for data protection and businesses worldwide rely on CloudCover Object Storage as part of their 3-2-1 backup strategy – due to its off-site location, the superior benefits of Object Storage and its flexible integration with popular backup
software.

Predictable pricing with no hidden costs

NO OPERATIONAL TRANSACTION CHARGES

Other providers including AWS, Azure and Google charge customers for every data operation performed. Every read, every write, every delete. Even the simple generation of a list is charged for. 

These costs are unpredictable and in many instances, form a larger part of the bill than the at-rest storage does itself.

With CloudCover 365 Object Storage, there is no charge (or cap) on data transfers to our platform, allowing for reliable, predictable monthly billing.

NO OUTBOUND DATA CHARGES

As with transaction charges, some cloud providers also charge for outbound data requests.

In essence, the storage provider is also charging you an additional fee and the cost of it is dependant on how much data your organisation updates and how many restores you need to make. Again, these charges make it almost impossible to accurately predict your monthly bill.

virtualDCS believes that your data is yours to access and manage, no matter where it is stored, which is why we don’t charge for outbound data transactions.
