Backup data is a primary target of ransomware, and legacy backup storage systems expose their customer’s last line of defense to the attack.
StorONE, Inc.‘s S1:Backup works with Veeam, Rubrik, HYCU, Commvault, and others to ensure backup data is immutable to ransomware attacks and extends the value to backup infrastructures while lowering the total cost of backup storage ownership.
S1:Backup – Modern backup storage for modern backup software
Flexible ransomware resilient backup storage
First to elevate instant recovery to instant-production
Lowers total cost of backup infrastructure
“When we examined the points of exposure, we discovered a gap between backup software innovations and storage hardware capabilities, which lead to vulnerabilities and higher cost,” said Gal Naor, CEO. “Legacy backup storage is the cause of that gap, S1:Backup fills it and enables companies to complete their ransomware recovery strategy and extract the full value from modern backup software by eliminating ransomware concerns and elevating backup to deliver high-availability.”

Flexible ransomware resiliency
If they offer it, legacy solutions force customers to use S3 for immutability. S1:Backup is a solution that delivers immutability across all its protocols, including NFS, SMB, S3, iSCSI, FC, and NVMe-oF.
S1:Backup delivers 100% ransomware resiliency:
Captures every backup job into an immutable state
Retains immutable copies indefinitely without impacting performance
If attacked by malware, rollback to a 30s old immutable copy
Capabilities like block-level incremental (change block tracking) backups enable customers to reduce their exposure to a ransomware attack or other failure. However, a high frequency of backup jobs puts too much strain on hard drive only backup storage technology, and all-flash backup storage is too expensive for the use case.
S1:Backup solves problem by auto-tiering between generous flash tier and up to 15PB+ HDD tier to deliver:
Supports hundreds of simultaneous backup jobs per hour for low RPO
Lowest possible backup costs thanks to performance from a small number of flash drives and 90% utilization of high-density HDDs
Safest, cost-effective long-term data retention
Modern backup software supports decade-plus data retention, but modern backup storage can’t scale to meet this capability. The lack of scale forces customers to add yet another storage silo, an archive.
S1:Backup delivers built-to-last backup storage supporting high HDDs without compromising availability. It can scale to 15+PB in a single cluster for long-term data retention while delivering high-performance backup and recovery.
S1:Backup provides real support of high-density HDD:
Fastest RAID rebuilds, recovering from 18TB drive failure in 2 hours (competing solutions take days)
Bit-error-rot protection, critical for long-term retention
Flexibility, mix new drive densities without creating new volumes or reconfiguring backup jobs

Elevates instant-recovery to instant-production
Modern backup-server software’s instant or live recovery features provide a reduction in recovery times. The problem is that the overhead of legacy backup storage software makes the performance of that instantly recovered VM or application unusable and risky.
S1:Backup is a backup storage solution that has the flexibility to be standby-production storage. IT can take the time required to investigate the ransomware attack, software bug, or hardware failure that instigated recovery without impacting users or applications.
S1:Backup is first to deliver production-class experience:
Highly-available backup cluster
Supports FC, iSCSI, NVMe-oF, NFS, SMB and S3 protocols
Enterprise-class performance and features
At backup storage prices!
S1:Backup is a backup storage solution designed to complement modern backup storage software, delivering complete ransomware protection and recovery while extending the value of the backup storage investment and dramatically lowering the upfront and long-term costs of storage.
