To use Kanatek Nuage cloud solutions, do I need to implement Veritas Backup Exec or is that simply an option?

“Kanatek’s Nuage cloud solution does not require clients to implement Veritas Backup Exec. In fact, no specialized software or agents are required to be installed on the client’s servers in order to use the Kanatek Nuage solution. For those customers who have already deployed Veritas NetBackup or Backup Exec, the Kanatek Nuage solution protects that investment and provides a cloud-based backup solution for those clients.s”

Are free cloud services as good as paid cloud offerings? Please explain.

“The short answer is no. Some key concerns with “free” cloud offerings include:

1) Loss of custody and control – in exchange for “free” storage, users often have to relinquish ownership of their own data

2) No SLA’s or guarantees to ensure timing or integrity of data recovery – most operate on a “best-efforts” basis

3) No control over where one’s data resides – i.e. might possibly be cross-border, which could have foreign tax and legal implications”

Is my confidential corporate data safe while in flight and at rest in your cloud facility?

“Yes, your data is compressed and encrypted on-site by the Kanatek Nuage appliance before transmission to our secure cloud facility. The data is fully encrypted at all times, conforms to AES256 standards and only you, the client, know the key! Furthermore, your data is securely stored in a Tier 3 Data Center in Canada – and not in a public cloud.”

Is it true that local back-ups are better, because we can control our own data?

“Yes, your data is compressed and encrypted on-site by the Kanatek Nuage appliance before transmission to our secure cloud facility. The data is fully encrypted at all times, conforms to AES256 standards and only you, the client, know the key! Furthermore, your data is securely stored in a Tier 3 Data Center in Canada – and not in a public cloud.”

Do you backup OpenVMS IA64 clients?

“Unfortunately OpenVMS IA64 is not supported”
