Why Ootbi by Object First?

Ransomware Attacks Statistics

Ransomware attacks continue to rise, with backups being their primary target. With over 2,200 daily strikes — one every 11 seconds — it is not a matter of if but when organizations fall victim to cybercriminals.

22 days of average downtime
$4.45 million average cost of an attack
493.33 million ransomware attacks annually

A robust backup and recovery strategy is the last line of defense against data being encrypted in an attack.

But data security solutions must be easy-to-use and cost-effective, especially for mid-market companies with limited IT resources.

Why is Ootbi The Best Storage for Veeam

Out-of-the-Box Immutability

As ransomware increasingly targets backups and prolongs downtime, having immutable backup storage is critical to avoid paying the ransom while ensuring backup data remains secure and ready to be recovered.

Enhanced Security and Zero Backend Access

Ootbi leverages a hardened Linux operating system, completely customized and locked down, with zero root or backend access allowed to the end user by design. Inside the user interface, admins can only create S3 keys and S3 buckets and cannot alter or delete anything until the immutability window set by the user has been passed.

Simplicity at Its Core

Our purpose-built appliance ensures swift and secure backup and recovery, sparing you from manual setup and configuration intricacies. With an optimized software layer, the need for exhaustive storage adjustments is now a thing of the past.

Hassle-Free Initial Configuration

Once the node is racked and stacked, the user logs in to the device through a TUI, accessible via IPMI or keyboard and monitor. The initial cluster setup can be completed in under 15 minutes, requiring little more than an IP address and password.

Purpose-Built Power

Ootbi is meticulously designed for Veeam Backup and Replication v12, ensuring seamless integration for Veeam admins. After generating the S3 bucket and keys within Veeam Backup and Replication, Ootbi's full potential can be unleashed. 

Accelerated Data Transfer

Ootbi optimizes data movement by utilizing your chosen networking hardware. Pick from onboard dual-10Gbps BaseT ports or dual-10Gbps SFP+ ports for alternate connections. Both options provide dual data streams from Veeam, doubling network throughput through parallelized transfers.

Experience Matters
