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.

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.

S3 Object Lock

Ootbi's proprietary object storage software was engineered from the ground up, bringing powerful immutability powered by S3 Object Lock. Rather than using a traditional file or block-based storage layer, object storage in an appliance form factor unlocks the ability to modernize the primary backup storage target.

Seamless Integration with Veeam

With two clicks, Ootbi storage buckets can be created, are immutable by default, and integrate seamlessly with Veeam's v12 direct-to-object storage configuration powered by the Smart Object Storage API.

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.

Effortless Management and Control

Users can create S3 keys and buckets and manage settings like notifications, MFA, and passwords with minimal input. Once set up, ongoing management becomes seamless. With a ready-to-use system and intuitive UI, necessary functionality is conveniently consolidated for straightforward control.

Automated Self-Healing

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.

Efficient Data Flow

Once data reaches Ootbi via the network, it's buffered to the 1.6TB NVME drive. From there, objects are distributed to the RAID 6 array, freeing up NVME space without affecting write operations. This ballet of optimized data movement ensures that write speeds on a single node can easily reach 1.0GB/s.
Capacity and performance also scale linearly, meaning that with four Ootbi nodes in a cluster, backup speeds can exceed 4.0GB/s with up to half a petabyte of storage space.

Swift Recovery Capabilities

Ootbi's recovery abilities are just as impressive as its backup performance. Instant recovery on Ootbi supports up to 20 VMs running simultaneously on a single node. For direct data, recovery speeds range from 500-600MB/s as the data is being read and sent directly from the RAID 6 storage.
These features also scale linearly, meaning Ootbi supports up to 80 VMs and 2.4GB/s recovery speeds on a complete four-node cluster.

Experience Matters

Developed and Delivered by Veeam Founders

Ootbi by Object First is the product of the visionary minds behind Veeam - Ratmir Timashev and Andrei Baronov. Decades of experience in innovation and reliable performance stand behind every Ootbi appliance.

Brent Earls
Chief Technology Officer

“There was no existing product on the market that would solve the immutable issue that was also simple to deploy and operate which also fell within budget – until now.

Object First has given us confidence that the solution will deliver everything it said it would.”
