Cobalt Iron’s flagship SaaS-based backup solution, Compass, reduces complexity and the amount of time spent on backup. Additionally, the software improves overall data protection performance. The enterprise data protection platform offers four main product components: Commander, Analytics Engine, Accelerators, and Accelerator Operating System. With this solution, users have access to a range of analytics, driven data management capabilities through a unified web user experience. Additionally, the solution offers ransomware detection, alerting and notification, remediation capabilities, and is available in AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, and Alibaba.

The new Compass VTL multitenancy solution automates tape, VTL, and disaster recovery operations and integrates them with other enterprise backup and disaster recovery solutions while maintaining multitenancy operational discipline. Data from multiple tenants can be directed to a Compass Accelerator via tape protocols, and data is automatically managed with multitenancy fidelity. Additionally, the platform supports automatic replication to another Compass Accelerator in a private or public cloud environment. This feature supports Fibre Channel connectivity on IBM Power AIX, IBM i, Windows on Intel, Linux on Intel, and HPE OpenVMS.

In a press statement, Rob Marett, chief technology officer at Cobalt Iron said, “as the era of expensive, independently managed VTL appliances continues to fade, customers have a growing need for comprehensive multitenancy capabilities that are fully integrated with enterprise backup operations and allow for the secure and efficient sharing of resources. Those are the precise requirements we’ve addressed with the new Compass VTL multitenancy feature, which delivers core VTL functionality but with reduced overall costs, operational simplicity, and secure multitenancy.”
