Don’t Put Backup on the Backburner

By Tuhina Goel

Today we’re proud to announce the general availability of Nutanix Mine. This truly integrated data protection solution allows customers to experience top-notch data management capabilities on Nutanix’s industry-leading enterprise cloud platform.

Secondary Storage Should Be a First Class Citizen

Is your backup data stored somewhere offsite, costing you thousands of dollars and not providing any business advantage at all? If yes, this is because data protection infrastructure is often a second class citizen in the datacenter. It’s an afterthought! Backed up data, kept in isolated and aging infrastructure is hard to access, difficult to manage, often stored on antiquated devices, and almost impossible to reuse. This, combined with a growing data footprint, 175 zettabytes by 2025, 700% rise in ransomware attacks since 2016, and more demanding recovery time objectives raises some unique challenges for IT Managers. This keen focus on data and application availability is a business imperative and requires organizations to develop a solid data protection strategy.

But… Legacy Backup Leaves You Wanting More

Legacy backup capabilities are holding your business back from being ‘always on.’ They cannot cope with increasing data volumes, new data types, application mobility, and cloud. On top of that, the secondary storage market is saturated with point products, requiring complex stitching and perpetual high-touch management across multiple user interfaces. The cost and complexity of traditional solutions results in unnecessary organizational overhead.

Opening Doors to Modern Data Protection

Nutanix Mine is not your typical run-of-the-mill backup solution. This comprehensive data protection platform is a celebration of consumer-grade design, relentless drive towards simplicity, and authentic dedication to providing a seamless experience that hasn’t been achieved before. Mine combines all the benefits of simplicity, scalability, and performance of Nutanix HCI with the power and enterprise-grade features of leading backup software from Veeam or HYCU, in one unified package. The result is a full-stack solution enabling you to quickly go from project planning to a complete data management solution, without the cost and overhead of standalone systems.
