Komprise Elastic Replication Cuts Disaster Recovery Costs for Unstructured Data by 70%
CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Komprise, the leader in analytics-driven unstructured data management and mobility, today announced Komprise Intelligent Data Management Winter 2024, which introduces Komprise Elastic Replication to drastically cut the cost of replicating unstructured data. With more frequent and devastating natural disasters, cybersecurity and ransomware attacks, data protection and disaster recovery (DR) strategies are essential in the enterprise. IT outages are getting more and more costly. According to the New Relic 2023 Observability Forecast report, the median annual cost of an outage has now reached $7.75 million.
Traditional approaches of network attached storage (NAS) mirroring work well for mission-critical file and object data, but in most organizations, it is too expensive for less critical unstructured data. This is because it requires identical infrastructure on the DR site and requires the replication of the entire physical volume. Additionally, NAS mirroring does not address ransomware due to its near instantaneous synchronization, which copies a ransomware infection immediately to the DR site before it can be detected. As of 2023, more than 72% of businesses worldwide were affected by ransomware attacks and the average cost of an attack was $1.85 million, according to Statista and GetAstra, respectively.
A More Affordable and Secure DR Strategy for Unstructured Data
Komprise Elastic Replication makes DR more affordable for growing volumes of unstructured data in the enterprise by right-sizing and right-placing DR copies and offering a more holistic approach to ransomware and data protection.
Key benefits include:
“Our customers are uneasy about not having disaster recovery plans for all unstructured data, but as unstructured data volumes continue to balloon, the one-size-fits-all mirroring approach is too expensive for most,” says Kumar Goswami, CEO of Komprise. “We are excited to help organizations customize disaster recovery so they can afford the protection they need for all of their data, within tight budgets.”
