State-of-the-art Backup and Disaster recovery solutions

Microsoft, Veeam and StoneFly have partnered up to offer state-of-the-art Backup and Disaster recovery solutions for Commercial, Government and Cloud Service providers.
Veeam Cloud Connect for the Enterprise (VCC-E)  or  Veeam Connect Gateway in Azure with Veeam Connect on-premise plus StoneFly Azure Cloud solution are the components of complete backup and disaster recovery solution for physical and virtual environments. This solution provides capacity, file size,  bandwidth, IOPS, shared access, multitenancy, security and active directory integration.

Why Choose StoneFly?

Veeam cloud connect connects your on-premises infrastructure with Microsoft Azure cloud. In order to do that, users need a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and a storage gateway that connects the appliance with the cloud. Without the storage gateway, the solution doesn’t work. After the connection, IT environments have to choose from Azure’s hot blob or cool blob storage. This makes up for a complex mix of services and a complex mix of bills.
StoneFly can simplify the entire process and handle all the complexity and payment for businesses. Instead of setting up a VPN, a storage gateway, and a storage controller and then deal with the complex bills, businesses can leave that to StoneFly and pay only for the Veeam cloud connect license and StoneFly’s services. To keep things simple, StoneFly offers a flat-rate for storage on a per TB (TeraByte) basis. Our offer is simple; it doesn’t force businesses into a permanent contract and it’s a per-month payment plan that can be terminated whenever necessary.

StoneFly Veeam Azure Government Architecture

Microsoft Azure goes above and beyond to deliver compliance at the platform level, working directly with the customers to maintain rigorous and changing federal, state and local compliance requirements for U.S. Public sector cloud solutions.

Industry Compliant Backup Solution

FedRAMP

FedRAMP is part of a set of security standards developed by the US government to make sure cloud services and products could protect federal and government data properly. FedRAMP comprises of a standardized approach to “Authorization, Security Assessment and continuous monitoring for Cloud services and products”.

HIPAA/HITRUST

HIPAA defines rules and regulations for healthcare service providers that deal with patient data. These rules emphasize on data protection services for PHI (Protected Health Information) processed by healthtech infrastructure. HITRUST is a certifiable framework that synchronizes various other compliance frameworks such as HIPAA, PCI, ISO, NIST etc.

CJIS

CJIS policy is developed by the Advisory Policy Board, comprising of people representing different states, and is enforced by the FBI CJIS (Criminal Justice Information Service) division. The policy describes rules pertaining to the data protection of federal data and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) stored and backed up in the cloud.

Quickly copy off-site backups to Azure

Veeam’s modern backup architecture makes it easy to transfer enterprise backups to Azure with forever-forward, incremental backups, as well as (grandfather-father-son) retention policies and built-in job copy functions.

Encryption – Enterprise-grade Data Security

Data is secured with advanced encryption technology both at rest and during transit. The solution employs AES 256-bit encryption for data at rest (before and after transit) while data is secured during transmission using SSL/TLS encryption technology.

Data Redundancy In the Cloud

Geo-redundant storage (GRS) replicates your data to a secondary region that is hundreds of miles away from the primary region. With this solution, enterprises can have 6 Geo Redundant copies in the cloud and 3 redundant copies within a region.

Reduced Recovery Time & Point Objectives (RTPOs)

Veeam cloud connect to Microsoft Azure cloud delivers reduced Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) of less than 15 minutes.

Veeam Direct Restore to Azure with Powered Network(PN)

An easy to use, light-weight software defined networking (SDN) solution to eliminate complicated VPN installation and simplify network configuration to create the recovery site on Microsoft Azure.

Plug & play, Elastic Capacity

Plug & play, elastic capacity, performance, file size support, user and data security.

Scale out Storage Repository

No limit on Storage capacity. Scale-out storage repository to desired capacities without limits and increase performance proportionally.

Streamline Failover

Failover process proceeds with zero data loss and disruption to users. All of your data is transmitted over a secure SSL/TLS connection via a single port. No VPNs. No networking configurations.

Built-in Bandwidth Accelerator

The feature-rich backup solution comes with built-in WAN accelerator. The accelerator optimizes the utilization rate and the throughput of the bandwidth, thereby delivering faster data transmission and reduced cost implications.  

Remove File-size and Bandwidth-size Limitations with our solutions

StoneFly’s solution allows you to “Scale Out” as your business grows by adding storage without losing performance and bypassing any storage capacity size constraints that Azure may have.Conventionally, Microsoft Azure cloud restricts file sizes to a maximum of 4 TB. This implies that businesses that need larger data transferred will have to divide their data into segments and then backup accordingly. This further implies that when the same business has to recover the data, they are subject to the same file size restriction. With StoneFly, there’s no limit to how much data you can backup or restore. Our customers decide their file size limitations and our innovative technology makes it happen for them.

StoneFly’s products have been deployed in Microsoft Commercial and Government data centers worldwide.

In order to facilitate variable and continuously growing workloads, StoneFly provides the ability to scale-out across nearly unlimited number of nodes in Microsoft Azure cloud. To deliver simplicity, these storage resources are accessible under a single namespace. With Veeam cloud connect, users can access a file stored in any storage from any node.

StoneFly has been delivering enterprise-grade solutions for over a decade. Our expertise enable us to effectively address the requirements of all kinds of businesses (ranging from SMBs/SMEs to large enterprises).

FAQ

What is the maximum size of data transfer supported?
The size of the backup can vary from just a couple of GBs to several TBs. There is no limit on the maximum size.
How much bandwidth would be available for the Veeam backup and replication solution?
The backup and replication jobs will use your network bandwidth. For best practices, our solution requires network specifications of 1 Gbps or faster for on-site backup and replication, and 1 Mbps or faster for off-site backup and replication. Bandwidth demand will be high for first time backup to create first full image of backup. Following backups will require smaller bandwidth as they are incremental copies.
What is the subscription model?
Products (listed below) are available with monthly subscription licenses. When the license expires, you must renew the license to continue usage of the product.

Veeam Agent for Linux

Can I use my own Veeam licence?
Yes. You can use your own Veeam license
Are the stored backups encrypted?
Data transmission from your location to our infrastructure is encrypted. You also have the option to enable encryption to encrypt your backups while configuring the backup jobs. If you enable encryption, data at rest will be encrypted. You can set a password which will be used to decrypt the data after restore.
What are the data restore options? 
Veeam Backup & Replication offers a number of recovery options including instant VM recovery, entire VM recovery, VM files restore and guest OS file recovery.
Is there a Graphical User Interface (GUI)?
Yes there is a GUI. You will be using the Veeam Backup & Replication V 9.5 GUI. It is user-friendly and an intuitive interface. You will also have access to a web portal to manage your disaster recovery plans.
In the event of a disaster, will I be able to spin up my Virtual Machines for testing and also for production?
Yes. We will setup replication for you and backed up VMs can be spun up in case of disaster. You can also schedule Failover jobs to test your disaster recovery plan.
