Central Technology’s Biggest Data Backup Security Challenges Before Ootbi:

  • Ransomware Threats: Emphasize the need for robust security measures.
  • Complex Solutions: “Our customers want an on-premises immutable backup repository that is easy to set and manage, where IT teams don’t have extensive Linux knowledge an out-of-the-box appliance provides the confidence that the device is secured, and backups are safe.”
  • Low Repository Performance: NAS-style appliances often struggle to meet RTO.

Central Technology’s Outcomes with Ootbi:

  • Regulatory Requirements Met: Ootbi meets security requirements in healthcare and education sectors.
  • Exceptional Performance: “Ootbi provided exceptional performance against high-performance block-level repositories.”
  • Peace of Mind: “Ootbi provides the confidence that the appliance and backup files stored on it are secured.”
