Cloud computing is fundamentally changing the way that IT resources are deployed and utilized. Enterprise customers see the reduced costs and flexibility benefits of this new architecture. Tributary’s storage appliances can be utilized in this new infrastructure model in a variety of ways:
Backup virtualization of cloud-based host servers and applications: Tributary’s storage appliances is co-located with the host servers and is managed entirely from a web-based interface. Physical and virtual servers can be backed up and easily managed.
Backup virtualization of customer premise host servers and applications to the cloud: A small Tributary’s storage appliance is used at the customer site. This appliance satisfies the short backup window and throughput requirements and, in turn, replicates data to Tributary’s storage appliances residing at an off-premise cloud data center.
