VAST Data picked to protect Plan B data centres

Data centre management company Plan B has gone with United States-based VAST Data for a high capacity, all Flash storage platform, to ensure its facilities remain operational even if under cyber attacks, data loss or security and networking issues.

Plan B which caters for medium to large businesses and enterprises with its managed data centres, picked VAST Data to fulfil its mission of protecting customer data and to ensure complete resilience for them.

The data centre management company is moving all customer data to solid state Flash storage.

"We found in VAST a partner that valued resilience as much as we do, enabling an S3aaS platform to remain operational under any circumstances,” said Diego Nievas, director of product and technology innovation at Plan B.

Nevas added that Plan B doesn't have to worry about VAST's platform at all, as it's low-to-zero touch, with the US company handling maintenance, service and firmware upgrades.

VAST Data's all-Flash object storage platform will be used for the move, which enables Plan B customer to retrieve data in seconds as opposted to days using legacy platforms, the company said.

The company's Universal Storage is built with disaggregated shared everything or DASE architecture.

DASE separates storage functionality from compute, which VAST Data said drives performance and capacity.

It can provide immutability of data with the indestructible snapshots feature, which prevents critical backup compies from being altered, or destroyed, by anyone before their expiration dates.

VAST Data's platform allows Plan B to sift through data to find viruses, cryptolockers and ransomware, should a cyber attack happen.
