Storage solutions and business backup

Centralised data storage presents a number of advantages for your infrastructure. Because the storage system is outsourced, the risk of the operating infrastructure being overloaded with insufficient resources or business-critical data being jeopardised by a power failure is minimised. Compared to a classic server solution with local shares, the backup and operation of the platform can be managed more professionally and be more structured.

Our products grow with your increasing requirements for storage space and IOPS performance. Simply expand the capacity during operation or upgrade to the next product version. You can also choose whether you want your storage to be optimised for large data volumes or for quick access.

The importance of a backup is often not noticed until it is too late. The business backup product provides you with an effective backup concept to ensure your valuable data is kept in good working order at all times. We will gladly advise you on personalised storage and backup solutions. Get in contact today.

Dedicated Storage: The dedicated SAN storage system for your data

Our dedicated data storage solution leaves nothing to be desired: We provide you with a dedicated powerful storage system, and you can decide on the setup and configuration, depending on your needs.

Highlights

  • Easy access
  • Highly available basis with dual controller and redundant power supply
  • Regional hosting at one of our locations
  • Support for/operation of infrastructure from/by PlusServer
  • Quality hardware from branded manufacturers only
  • Full integration in existing environment possible (VLAN)
  • Minimum contract term of just one month
  • Next-business day provision

The Hewlett Packard Enterprise MSA 2040 storage arrays we use as dedicated storage offer excellent performance for many areas of application, such as storage consolidation and virtualisation. A new controller architecture with high-performance processors facilitates faster access to your data. As standard, we configure all Dedicated Storage systems as dual controller arrays, which, together with a redundant power supply and network connection and corresponding RAID level, provide the redundancy required for high availability.

Enterprise functionalities such as snapshots and volume copy are also available and enhance the protection of your data and backups. A generous 4 GB cache ensures a faster response time for your applications.

The dedicated storage can be equipped with near-line SAS, SAS or even an SSD hard drive. This therefore offers optimum performance for your personal intended purpose on the storage space available.

Our products grow alongside your growing needs for capacity and IOPS performance. With our storage concept, you can expand your storage capacity without high migration costs, e.g. for extensive backups, or upgrade to the next product version.

Choose whether you want the focus to be on the storage of large data volumes or quick access.

The storage array can be connected redundantly with up to four network connections (each 1 Gbit or 10 Gbit). The power supply to the device also has a multiply redundant design. Data integrity is secured at all times in the unlikely event of a power failure, thanks to the way in which our storage systems work.

Cloud Datastore: The SAN storage system for your cloud

Whether it’s a Business Cloud or dedicated server for virtualisation - our cloud data store is the perfect modern, high-performance yet cost-effective central storage solution for your data and backups.

In contrast to traditional data storage on server systems, you have a solution available to you that is extremely flexible, highly scalable and is equally available with very high failsafe protection for your cloud environment.

Highlights

  • Easy access
  • Redundant platform with at least n+1
  • Regional hosting at one of our locations
  • Support for/operation of infrastructure from/by PlusServer
  • Quality hardware from branded manufacturers only
  • Full integration in existing environment possible (VLAN)
  • Minimum contract term of just one month
  • Next-business day provision

Our products grow alongside your growing needs for capacity and IOPS performance. With our storage concept, you can expand your storage capacity or upgrade to the next product version without interrupting the ongoing operation of your setup.

Choose whether you want your storage to be optimised for the safekeeping of large data volumes or for quick access.

The storage network is generally redundantly connected to multiple bandwidth upstreams. The power supply to the device also has a multiply redundant design. Data integrity is secured at all times in the unlikely event of a power failure, thanks to the way in which our storage systems work. These are operated in various fire protection zones to increase the physical security of the storage systems.

Variants

The Cloud Datastore is provided in flexible to use packets of up to 100 GB. You can choose between two types of memory, optimised for large volumes of data or fast access.

Shared Storage: The efficient storage solution

Expand your server infrastructure with a modern, highly available yet cost-effective central storage solution. In contrast to traditional data storage on server systems, you have a solution available to you that is extremely flexible, highly scalable and is equally available with very high failsafe protection for all servers and components in your individual setup.

You also benefit from the low financial burden in comparison to a dedicated solution, as the basic costs for the storage solution are spread between multiple customers due to the shared infrastructure. So you get high-quality data storage for a low price.

Highlights

  • Various protocols: ISCSI, NFS, CIFS
  • Redundant platform with at least n+1
  • Regional hosting at one of our locations
  • Support for/operation of infrastructure from/by PlusServer
  • Quality hardware from branded manufacturers only
  • Full integration in existing environment possible (VLAN)
  • Minimum contract term of just one month
  • Next-business day provision

As your requirements for IOPS performance or storage capacity increase, our products can be scaled at any time without disrupting the ongoing operation of your setup.

We are happy to optimise your storage solution for you, either for storing large volumes of data or enabling the fastest possible access to data.

Take advantage of the numerous benefits centralised data storage offers for your infrastructure: outsource the storage system to relieve the strain on your infrastructure. You can also increase data security by using external storage.

The storage network is generally redundantly connected to multiple bandwidth upstreams.

A multiple redundant power supply reduces the likelihood of power failure at the data storage unit. In addition, the data remains protected in the unlikely event of a power failure. We operate these in various fire protection zones to further increase the physical security of the storage systems.

Business Backup

Create backups at regular intervals with the Business Backup to protect your company from data loss. Unlike conventional backup systems, the entire disk partition is first saved in blocks.

This is the initial full backup. The Business Backup subsequently saves only those data blocks which have been changed since the last backup. This incremental backup creates a consistent backup of data and resources.

Highlights

  • Provision of a backup account on a central backup cluster
  • Set-up of the contractually agreed backup storage space
  • Configuration of backup routines and intervals depending on the product ordered
  • Provision of a customer interface for data restoration
  • Continuous monitoring of the backup process and notification when errors occur
  • Optional: backup in another fire compartment

As the backup server automatically recognises existing file systems, you can also restore individual files of a specific backup despite the block level-based solution. You can perform a restore by simply accessing the customer interface, which we provide – regardless of whether this involves only parts of the backup or a bare-metal restore.

On the server to be backed up, we install a backup agent that coordinates the backup runs. In addition, we set up the contractually agreed storage capacity for your backups in our backup systems for you.

In Business Backup, you have the option of storing your backups in a different fire compartment to your server. You can use the off-site option and benefit from additional security.
