Cloud data protection-as-a-service goes beyond backup to reduce cost and complexity, delivering DR, and long-term backup retention.

N-able, Inc. announced Cove Data Protection, the cloud-first data protection-as-a-service (DPaaS) solution that modernizes data protection for business-class backup and DR.

While cloud-first architecture has long been appreciated for reducing the cost and complexity of backup, practitioners have sometimes felt the need to maintain a second solution for DR. Cove bridges that gap – combining cloud-first data protection with business-class disaster recovery and long-term backup retention. It sits in a different class among well-known legacy backup solutions, without the traditional high costs and built-in inefficiencies.

According to Joshua Wragg, president and owner, NexusTech, LLC, “Nobody cares about a backup solution when it is not needed, but as soon as there’s a problem, it is instantly the most important product. The reliability and thoroughness of Cove gives us everything we need to protect against every disaster imaginable for our servers and workstations. We not only have experienced its robustness in action, but I can also finally sleep at night.”

Cove delivers:

  • Appliance-free, direct-to-cloud approach that removes the expensive and unnecessary ‘infrastructure that acts as a middleman,’ helping partners scale as they grow and eliminating the need to ‘babysit backups’

  • Data protection for servers, workstations, and Microsoft 365 data, all managed from a single pane of glass

  • Ability to backup as often as every 15 minutes, moving up to 60x less data compared to local-first backup, for improved RPO and RTO

  • Standby virtual server image in the partner’s location of choice for fast and flexible restore options (now in preview/early access)

  • Fully managed cloud storage, with 30 data centers to keep backups stored in region, to respect data sovereignty

Today’s IT professionals have adopted a cloud-first IT strategy,” stated Chris Groot, GM, Cove data protection, N-able. “For example, years ago, everyone had an on-premises Microsoft Exchange server. Today, it’s rare to find a company that isn’t using Microsoft 365. With Cove, we bring that same concept to data protection.“

Legacy image and appliance-based backup software solutions can create a huge administrative burden for IT professionals as they look to rationalize the cloud with their backup and disaster recovery needs,” he continued. “The unique approach of the Cove offering, true cloud-first data protection as-a-service, delivers a premium service at a lower cost of ownership for our partners, along with full business-class disaster recovery.

A recent report from William Blair, industry analyst firm, further highlights the evolution of data management from traditional backup to a cloud-based ‘as-a-service’ model to completely untangle the reliance on clunky and inefficient hardware and “eliminate the high complexity of installations, configurations, and management required to operate legacy data protection.” (2)
