Backup and Recovery

Hot cloud storage makes backed-up data instantly available if the worst should happen.


Backup and Recovery

Hot cloud storage makes backed-up data instantly available if the worst should happen.

Managing enterprise data backups and being prepared for disaster recovery scenarios across desktops, laptops, on-prem servers, virtual servers and the public cloud can easily become an overwhelming job. Keeping up with data growth using tape libraries and secondary storage sites poses a scalability challenge that has organizations looking to cloud storage for a simpler, faster way to back up their growing digital assets.

When you back up to OSS hot cloud storage, you have an easy method of making sure all your critical information is replicated—and that it’s secure and immediately available to you if and when you need it. All at a cost that’s 80% less than AWS S3.

The Least Expensive and Most Secure Way to Prepare for the Worst.

You can’t recover data and applications you haven’t kept. That’s why maintaining current copies of data and applications is a must for ensuring business continuity. You need a way to keep your business running in the unfortunate event of an outage or if data should otherwise get lost or corrupted.

But backups now consume more storage than ever. Data is growing exponentially, even doubling every year in some industries. On top of that, you now have to also worry about replicating Big Data for analytics, huge-capacity video files, audio, virtual servers, and application software–all with very large footprints. Backing up these immense files can get prohibitively expensive without the right storage strategy in place.

Fortunately, now you have a modern cloud storage option for simple, affordable backup and recovery. You not only get the infinite scalability of the cloud with OSS hot cloud storage. You can securely back up your assets for less than what you’d pay for Linear Tape-Open (LTO) storage and at a fraction of the price of AWS S3 cloud storage. And there are never any penalty fees for accessing your data when you do need it. That makes OSS ideal for backing up everything from mission-critical databases and applications to all your high-resolution images and media.


Immune to Hackers, Deletions, and Changes

OSS hot cloud storage is designed with eleven nines (99.999999999%) of object durability. It’s secure by default, with ACL-based user authentication and AES 256 encryption of data at rest. And we offer easy-to-configure immutable buckets that make your data impervious to hackers, accidental changes, or deletions. With immutability turned on, no one—not you, not OSS, not hackers—can delete or change your data.

Ideal Solution for Extending your Tape Infrastructure

If you’re already using the cloud for primary storage, backing up a second copy with OSS is a smart way to protect your data and ensure business continuity. If you’re running an on-prem storage-area network (SAN) or network-attached storage (NAS) and off-prem tape, you can get an inexpensive third copy of your data that’s immediately accessible in case your local storage goes offline and there isn’t time to retrieve your tape backup.

OSS hot cloud storage has become so inexpensive and fast that IT professionals doing their due diligence will have to evaluate cloud storage as part of their organizations’ backup strategy. Test it as a supplement to your existing tape installation for specific use cases or to back up select application servers. Or just to have an immediately accessible third copy, should locally stored copies become unavailable.

No More Complicated Tiers

Cloud storage makes your backup data easily accessible while eliminating equipment expenses and providing infinite scalability. But legacy cloud services like AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform remain tiered, costly, and complicated. They require you to figure out which assets must be available fast and which can tolerate coming back online more slowly. You then have to slot those assets into the appropriate storage tier. Lower-priced storage tiers take longer to restore; up to 24 hours in most cases.

With OSS, you’re liberated from having to choose different tiers to balance out your price/performance needs. We offer a single hot cloud storage tier with predictable, straightforward and affordable pricing. Any data you store—primary, backup, or archived—is immediately accessible whenever you need it. And unlike competing services, we never charge you egress fees to access the data you’ve stored with us.

Because at OSS, data storage is simply data storage. And it’s all hot storage.


Hot cloud storage costs less than yesterday’s cold storage. Easily back up your local drives and tape infrastructure with copies to the cloud and access it instantly, when you need it.


Performance speeds faster than the competition means your backup data and apps are always at your fingertips.

No Tiers

Hot cloud storage means no complicated data tiers to figure out. You just get fast access to all data, hot or cold, at the same low price. Period.

Whatever your industry, data is the force that drives it. You can’t conduct business, serve customers, or gain insights from data you’ve deleted or that’s sitting in a faraway salt mine. Today’s business requirements are far too dynamic. You should be able to affordably store and quickly retrieve all your backup data and software whenever circumstances dictate.

You can easily create hot data backups in the cloud less expensively than both tape and other cloud storage options with OSS hot cloud storage. That way, your data is readily accessible whenever you need it, 24×7. With so much data to replicate and protect, you really can’t afford NOT to evaluate hot cloud storage.

Industry Use Cases

Backing Up Healthcare Records for HIPAA and HITECH Compliance
U.S. healthcare providers can use OSS to back up their electronic healthcare records so that they’re always available for compliance audits. Using OSS for primary and backup storage complies with Federal HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) regulations. OSS is built and managed according to security best practices and standards with HIPAA patient privacy and data security requirements in mind. Schellman & Company, an independent CPA, has audited OSS security architecture, systems, and practices, and confirmed that OSS complies with HIPAA/HITECH security and privacy rules.

Ensuring HIPAA and HITECH Compliance with OSS

Public Safety Gets Active Archive for Less than the Cost of Cold Storage
Digital forensics, facial recognition, and bodycam video footage are just a few types of data that public safety organizations collect and store to help solve crimes. These files are large and need to be backed up to ensure availability if and when law enforcement needs to close a case or testify in court. These large backups can be expensive and slow to restore, even using some cloud services. With OSS hot cloud storage, however, all storage is hot and immediately available. There’s no worrying over what data you’re likely to need more or less quickly than other data. You get hot storage for 80% less than AWS S3 and at a faster speed. Back up your critical public safety content in OSS for less money, where you can access it in seconds, not hours.
