More than 60% of all corporate data is stored in the cloud today, a number that’s doubled in under a decade. Successfully adopting multicloud requires relying on a mix of traditional and modern data sources, which can be great for business agility, but challenging for those handling data protection. It is typically not a simple lift and shift strategy.
Legacy data protection solutions and multicloud data migration frustrate the already stressed IT teams. Moreover, balancing agility and keeping costs in check while complying with data privacy and security regulations is a constantly shifting target.
Organizations seeking a better way to migrate and protect data in multicloud and hybrid environments are increasingly opting to work with a trusted service provider that delivers expert advice and turnkey solutions. That’s a key reason why the strategic partnership between Rackspace Technology and Cohesity is so interesting. These two leaders — Rackspace Technology, a service provider specializing in multicloud solutions and services, and Cohesity, a leader in the backup and recovery software solutions, are coming together to advance data mobility and protection for VMware Cloud environments globally. Customers can get a single backup and recovery solution to safeguard data against common outages, human errors, and ransomware threats. The solution also provides operational simplicity and cyber resiliency — which is critical in an era of hybrid cloud adoption and data protection.
Any discussion about data in the cloud must include cyber resiliency. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts global cybercrime costs will reach $10.5 trillion by 2025. At the extreme end of organizations being targeted by bad actors are the governments worldwide, as they have experienced a 1,885% increase in ransomware attacks.
Therefore, every organization needs to consider a multi-layered defense to protect against both cyber breaches and ransomware attacks. With Rackspace Data Protection, that’s exactly what you get.
After decades in the managed service business, Rackspace Technology understands complexity is one of the biggest impediments in delivering business resiliency. Legacy data protection solutions are complex because of the disparate components — backup application, virtual server agents, media agents, and ransomware honeypots. They are cobbled together and often orchestrated with different management tools.
With the Cohesity-Powered solution, Rackspace Data Protection’s approach is radically simplified. Customers will have access to a host of benefits:
Rackspace Data Protection is a key service for protecting Rackspace Technology’s VMware-based customers, including mid-to-large enterprises and government institutions. Strong security is paramount — not just a good practice — in such an environment where many downstream customers are involved.
With the Cohesity Threat Defense architecture, Rackspace Technology provides a multi-layered approach to minimize the blast radius of ransomware attacks.
For your organization to fully realize the value of your data, whom you choose to partner with and entrust your data to is important. The Cohesity-Powered solution, Rackspace Data Protection, includes a comprehensive set of advanced capabilities such as simplified data protection, reduced data footprint, expansion without disruption, discovery of hidden threats, and rapid recovery at scale from ransomware.
