Homeland Security, Intelligence Provider Gets Cloud Storage

Even national defense, intelligence and homeland security agencies have been turning to cloud storage to protect our nation. Salient Federal Solutions, a provider of information technology, engineering, and intelligence analytic services to agencies in the intelligence, defense, homeland security and cyber domains, has recently implemented the TwinStrata CloudArray storage gateway, according to TwinStrata, Inc. For cloud-based backup and disaster recovery, Veeam Backup & Replication software was included in the software.

TwinStrata specializes in enterprise-class data storage, data protection and disaster recovery/business continuity solutions using cloud storage. TwinStrata CloudArray is one piece of software to meet the cloud storage needs of companies of all sizes, large or small. Availability, performance and security of local storage is maintained through this software.

Veeam Backup & Replication was used to backup several terabytes of data from their VMware environment to a local storage area network (SAN), according to Salient. The switch from tape backup to cloud storage was made in 2011. The ability to choose your own storage provider was the main reason for using TwinStrata.
