The value of data is growing every year. For this reason, downtime has an even greater impact on businesses. Seventy-five percent reported seeing an increase in the value of their data, as the cost of downtime increased to over $9,000 per minute for organizations.
Zadara was joined by our partners at Veeam for a live webinar to discuss how service providers of all sizes are offering customers a unique multi-tier (3-2-1), multi-cloud, 100%-OpEx backup solution with no expensive storage appliances to buy or long-term contracts required.

Access to data is required to power your business and support your customers. The more valuable the data, the more important it is to protect. In 2019 alone, businesses reported a 235% increase in ransomware attacks. This number is expected to skyrocket from the impact of COVID-19 and the entry points introduced by the new remote workforce. However prevalent, most successful ransomware attacks go unpublicized.
Data Loss Can Put a Business Out of Business – Literally.
Resulting from a 2019 ransomware attack, Norse Hydro reported over $61M in losses.
Although they had antivirus (AV) and protections in place, cybercriminals were able to gain access to their systems 2-3 weeks prior to detection. Sixty-seven different AV providers were unable to detect this crippling virus. For Norse Hydro, 35,000 employees in 40 countries lost the ability to do their work and a month after the attack they were still trying to recover 160 manufacturing plants.
While 60% of organizations experience a data breach, there are many reasons for a trusted backup solution beyond the risk of cyberattacks.
Of those companies that suffer catastrophic data loss 94% do not recover. According to Gartner, those that rely on tapes for backup, 50% fail to restore. A reliable backup is also essential for many organizations for compliance. For this reason, Veeam + Zadara backup meets standards for ISO 27001; SOC 2; HIPAA; GDPR; more.
The Only Complete Multi-tier, Multi-location, multi-tenant 100%-OpEx Solution
Protecting data in today’s hybrid IT environments presents challenges legacy backup systems simply weren’t designed to handle. That’s why Zadara is a Veeam Alliance Partner, to offer the only unified, multi-tier data protection solution that delivers complete 3-2-1 backup protection without the need for multiple technologies. Protect your data from ever-present threats, including technology failures, natural disasters, and bad actors. No matter where your data is generated or stored.
Veeams ‘3-2-1-1’ data protection methodology is based on the backup rule of three. This came from photographer Peter Crowe designed to protect his digital photographer. This includes keeping three copies on your data, stored in multiple forms, including one version offsite.
For many keeping the data offsite can be a challenge given resources, the size of data, and the expense of bandwidth. Veeam’s Cloud Connect allows customers to meet the 3-2-1 without expensive resources. By leveraging cloud backup services, organizations are able to back up offsite and take advantage of the power of data immutability, with one version being offline through object storage. Veeam + Zadara can service all of these versions of backup with one single solution.
Through our partnership with Veeam, Zadara provides an easy mechanism for customers to send data offsite securely with a user ID and password from your service provider. No need to invest in a second site for backups. Encrypt through a secure SSL connection and maintain complete visibility and control of your data, and it’s fully integrated. Customers don’t lose any features or functionality. You can have a complete end-to-end backup solution with Veeam + Zadara including copying the data to object storage and locking it to prevent deletion.
