ECONOMICS

Archiving is the cloud’s killer use case. You can achieve low monthly storage costs that are comparable to tape without risking complexity and delays in a future discovery.

AGILITY

Unlike any other cold archive approach, with HubStor your cold archive data is always at your fingertips. You can search, analyze, and manage content at any time.

ASSURANCE

We make sure to never lock you in. We make it easy to get your data into the cloud, and we make it easy to get out. Plus, you won’t find a more secure vault.


What is Cold Storage?

When you think of cold storage, do tape backups come to mind? Sadly, many companies still use tape backups in their archive strategy. Tape may seem cost efficient at first, but when you need to run discovery and retrieve data from tape, all cost saving is lost.

Cloud storage with HubStor — in Microsoft Azure — is where you find modern cold archiving where the storage economics now rival tape. But unlike tape, the cloud offers advanced security, agility, and convenience with built-in search and data governance.

Search

Even in a cold archive state, your content is ready for search. Query metadata and run scoped full-text indexing at scale. Place results on legal hold and export data effortlessly.

Analytics

Built-in storage analytics and activity auditing give you full visibility. Isolate datasets based on access rights, data ownership, and item metadata. Understand storage costs and associate storage consumption to projects, clients, or departments.

Encryption

Data is always encrypted in motion, and HubStor includes two approaches — both AES 256-bit — for encrypting your data-at-rest.

Deduplication

Single-instance storage removes duplication from content.

Compression

Built-in compression further reduces your archive storage footprint to help minimize long-term storage costs.

Redundancy

At minimum, your cold archive keeps three synchronous copies of your data. Enhanced redundancy includes three additional copies in a secondary Azure region. HubStor supports a warm-standby in a secondary Azure region to keep you operational in a disaster.

Cloud Archiving Unleashed

  • IDENTITY-AWARE

    Sync Security ACLs to support true custodian searching, user-based policies, and self-service access.

  • LEGAL HOLD

    Place users or groups on legal hold. Save searches to cases. Apply legal hold data classification policies.

Our Strong Points Ipad
  • EXPORTS

    Export what you need -- entire storage accounts, particular folders, individual items.

  • VERSIONING

    Maintain version histories for each item.

  • DATA GOVERNANCE

    Analyze data and access activities. Apply policies for retention, deletion, indexing, tagging, and chargeback.

MULTIPLE PATHS TO CLOUD ARCHIVING

GATEWAY OR
DRIVE SHIPPING?

HubStor offers two methods for ingesting your data into the cloud:

  1. HubStor’s gateway software
  2. Drive shipping via the Azure Import Service

HubStor’s gateway service is the typical means of ingestion. Clients often run multiple instances of the software at various locations to cloud-enable existing file servers and archive Exchange mailboxes. Instances can run in the cloud to accept journaling feeds, support legacy archive migrations, and run backup and archiving rules against your Office 365 tenant.

In addition, we can leverage the Azure Import/Export Service to dramatically cut down the network bandwidth required to archive large volumes of legacy data to the cloud with HubStor. Uniquely, HubStor also supports lossless access rights, metadata, and folder structure synchronization for the imported content.


THE NEW ARCHIVE TIER IN AZURE

WITH BLOB-LEVEL
CLOUD TIERING

Microsoft recently announced the public preview of Azure Archive Storage (AAS) and blob-level tiering!

The Archive tier is design for low-cost, long-term storage workloads — making Azure the market-leading archive storage option for cloud archiving.

With the introduction of the new Azure Archive tier and blob-level tiering, a blob storage account will support individual items being at any of the storage tiers: Hot, Cool, or Archive.

HubStor tightly integrates with these new features today. If you wish to run a pilot, let us know.
