N-able has announced the launch of Cove Data Protection, the cloud-first data protection-as-a-service (DPaaS) solution that modernises data protection for business-class backup and disaster recovery.
Cove was built from the ground up with a cloud-first architecture compared to traditional local-first image-based backup products that have bolted on secondary cloud capabilities as an afterthought, adding extra complexity. While cloud-first architecture has long been appreciated for reducing the cost and complexity of backup, practitioners have sometimes felt the need to maintain a second solution for disaster recovery. Cove aims to bridge that gap, combining cloud-first data protection with business-class disaster recovery and long-term backup retention.
Chris Groot, General Manager, Cove Data Protection at N-able said, “today’s IT professionals have adopted a cloud-first IT strategy. For example, years ago, everyone had an on-premises Microsoft Exchange server. Today, it’s rare to find a company that isn’t using Microsoft 365. With Cove, we bring that same concept to data protection.
“Legacy image and appliance-based backup software solutions can create a huge administrative burden for IT professionals as they look to rationalise the cloud with their backup and disaster recovery needs. The unique approach of the Cove offering, true cloud-first data protection as-a-service, delivers a premium service at a lower cost of ownership for our partners, along with full business-class disaster recovery.”
