CloudBerry Backup Supports Google Cloud Storage Nearline on Day One of Launch

With This Collaboration, CloudBerry Customers Can Backup to Google Cloud Storage Nearline for Very Low-Cost Storage with Data Retrieval in Seconds

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – June 24, 2015

CloudBerry Lab™, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, today announced that its CloudBerry Backup family of solutions supports Google Cloud Storage Nearline on the very first day of the service’s general availability.

Cloud Storage Nearline provides a very low-cost cloud storage option to CloudBerry customers, but without the three-to-five-hour wait that other services require to retrieve data; with Cloud Storage Nearline, customers can retrieve data in seconds. In addition, Cloud Storage Nearline provides a 99 percent availability SLA (service level agreement) and a throughput guarantee of 4 MB per second per terabyte.

For SMBs, this collaboration gives CloudBerry customers access from day one to a low-cost target that’s ideally suited for backup storage. And for CloudBerry’s managed service provider (MSP) partners, Cloud Storage Nearline is fully integrated with all other Google Cloud Platform services and uses the same unified API.

CloudBerry Backup provides SMBs with a reliable, powerful and affordable solution to back up and recover data using the cloud. In addition to offering real-time and/or scheduled regular backups for simple data backups, local disk image, or bare metal restore, the solution employs block level backup for maximum efficiency and provides best-in -class alerting features to track each backup and restore plan remotely. Data is protected via 256-bit AES encryption with keys controlled only by the customer, while confidentiality is enforced through transparent exchange whereby only the end-user has access to the actual data residing on Cloud Storage Nearline.

For VARs and resellers, CloudBerry provides an easily managed, robust platform enabling them to start selling backup services to their customers quickly, increasing revenue and expanding their core suite of service offerings.

“This collaboration with Google Cloud Platform gives all of our customers a cloud storage target that’s perfect for backup storage,” said Alexey Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. “It’s very low-cost and yet provides access to data in seconds, not minutes or hours, so when customers need to restore, they don’t need to worry about excessive downtime while they wait to retrieve the backups. CloudBerry is excited to be able to offer full Google Cloud Storage Nearline support from day one.”
