N-able Cove Data Protection is a cloud-first data protection-as-a-service (DPaaS) solution that modernizes data protection for enterprise backup and disaster recovery. This approach has never been more important as the number of cyberattacks, including ransomware, has increased for both managed services providers and internal IT organizations.
In today’s modern IT environment, a solution like Cove that was built from the ground up with a cloud-first architecture is preferable to traditional local-first image-based backup products that are bolted on secondary cloud capabilities as an afterthought, adding complexity. While cloud-first architecture has long been praised for lowering the cost and complexity of backup, practitioners have occasionally felt the need to keep a backup solution on hand for disaster recovery.
Joshua Wragg, president of NexusTech, LLC commented, “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 give 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.”
N-able Cove bridge combines cloud-first data protection with enterprise-class disaster recovery and long-term backup retention. It is fundamentally different from well-known legacy backup solutions in that it does not have the traditional high costs and built-in inefficiencies. Cove provides an appliance-free, direct-to-cloud approach that eliminates the costly and unnecessary “middleman infrastructure,” allowing partners to scale as they grow and eliminating the need to “babysit backups.”
Data security for servers, workstations, and Microsoft 365 data, is all managed through a single interface. The ability to back up as frequently as every fifteen minutes while moving up to 60 times fewer data than with local-first backup, resulting in a significantly improved recovery point and recovery time objectives. A backup virtual server image in the partner’s preferred location for quick and flexible restore options (now in preview/early access). To respect data sovereignty, fully managed cloud storage with 30 data centers keeps backups stored in the region.
