This Holiday Season Don’t Let The Backup Grinch Steal Your Time


As we approach the holiday season, no one wants to be recovering data when they should be spending precious time with family and friends. Unfortunately, IT departments are too often required to respond to emergencies during the holidays because of the 24/7 nature of modern business. Customers and prospects continue to interact with businesses online, even when the brick and mortar doors are closed.

This powerful, always on business strategy requires an equally powerful backup plan. Thankfully, while businesses and their IT departments no longer operate on a nine-to-five basis, neither does the support to help them through the holidays. Client interaction and client support happen more instantaneously than ever before, with 24/7 accessibility.

Is your business prepared for disaster this holiday season?

What Is Your Data Loss Plan?

Data loss can occur in several ways. A device can be lost or stolen. Hardware can fail or become corrupted. A simple click can introduce ransomware into networks and cause widespread, crippling infection. Malicious hackers love the winter holiday season – they know that in-house IT hours are reduced, and businesses have their guard down.

In seconds, tons of valuable data can be locked down or obliterated. All that is left is a business clambering to repair their relationships with clients and vendors, while spending large amounts of money and time trying to get things back up and running. A small error can create a calamity that requires all hands on deck, and that some businesses can never fully recover from.

You must ask yourself: if your company were caught in a similar scenario during the holidays, do you have a disaster recovery plan in place to quickly respond and get back to business? Would you be able to recover, or would your operations grind to a halt?

Disaster Recovery to the Rescue

It is possible to keep things running smoothly even when trouble arises. The DRaaS advantage lies in its ability to provide complete and rapid cloud recovery services. These services range from site and transactional restoration, to full data center recovery and failovers.

Because DRaaS is cloud-based, you won’t need to make a heavy upfront investment in a data center, servers, or software licenses to get your own remote backup and DRaaS solution. DRaaS additionally benefits enterprises by replacing huge capital expenditures with more manageable operational expenditures, making DR accessible to and affordable for any size organization.

Data Protection, Backup & Recovery Trends Report 2022: Wrap Up the Year with Storagepipe


Hello friends,

We’re wrapping up the year with our annual Data Protection, Backup and Recovery Trends Report, where we share the most urgent, prevalent, and emerging challenges that we helped our customers solve with managed Cybersecurity , Backup as a Service and Disaster Recovery Services.

As we look back on 2022, we appreciate all the customers, partners, and supporters that joined us through a challenging winter, a fast-paced summer, and an autumn jam-packed with new opportunities.

Understanding this past year’s trends helps you to establish a benchmark as you consider your organization’s Data Protection opportunities and challenges and begin to plan for 2023.

Microsoft 365 Migration Shifted to M365 Data Protection

After a rapid adoption phase in 2020 – 2021 spurred by expected growth in digital transformation initiatives and the unexpected Covid-19 pandemic necessitating a massive shift to remote and hybrid work models, IT departments began reassessing their data protection needs in 2022.

In the rush to adopt, migrate, and deploy, data protection considerations can be overlooked. While many appreciate the collaboration made possible with Microsoft 365, some are unaware that the protection of data generated by these applications is their business’s responsibility. Microsoft does not perform backups on a company’s behalf, and they do not provide recovery services.

Microsoft’s Shared Responsibility Model states that they are responsible for ensuring that the platform remains accessible and available, while the customer is responsible for ensuring that their data is backed up and recoverable in the event of a disaster. If an adverse incident such as a security breach or ransomware attack strikes, Microsoft will not recover your data for you.

The risk of falling victim to ransomware is ever-present, with phishing emails and their mishandling by end users continuing as the #1 vulnerability vector. Malicious actors took advantage of the trust people have in Microsoft’s brand by embedding well-known file types such as Excel and Word with malicious links and code and adding them as email attachments from addresses that include ‘outlook’ in their domain. These tactics almost doubled in popularity between Q1 and Q2 2022.

Throughout 2022, Storagepipe has spread awareness of these dangers to your data and worked with businesses of all sizes to put effective managed anti-spam, backup, and disaster recovery plans in place.

Learn how organizations can achieve complete Microsoft 365 Data Protection in our helpful guide here.

All Businesses At Risk For Ransomware

In 2020, bad actors attacked big, enterprise targets – companies that had the deep pockets to pay out. As those businesses strengthened their cybersecurity posture and disaster recovery plans in response, they became more challenging to victimize. This spurred a shift in tactics from the private to the public sector, as large healthcare, infrastructure and energy, and government organizations became the new favoured prey throughout 2021.
After several headline newsworthy incidents, the public sector began taking notes from the private sector’s hard-won lessons and shored up their backup and recovery, as well as their cybersecurity monitoring, detection, and response capabilities.

As large entities in both private and public sectors came under attack, insurance companies bore the brunt of hefty ransomware payouts and criticism that their policies were rewarding bad behaviour. Fast-forward to 2022, and the terms – and costs – of cybersecurity insurance policy renewals have become eye-watering and for some SMBs, prohibitive.

Large businesses and government agencies may be able to absorb the increased expenditures and resources needed to meet the new compliance requirements. However, small and medium sized businesses can struggle to justify the spend when comparing risks, costs, and benefits. Especially with the added assumption that malicious actors only focus their attacks on enterprise sized organizations.

In 2022, that assumption proved to be disastrously wrong. For starters, data protection safeguards against more than just ransomware. It protects organizations from insider threats, accidental deletion or other user errors. It also protects against facility and hardware failures triggered by outdated equipment, misconfigured networks, connection downtimes, and natural disasters that wipe out entire regions.

While other threats have always existed, small and medium-sized businesses were often considered less profitable targets than the Fortune 500 set. And while malware incidents were common, expensive, and disabling, ransomware attacks before 2022 were less common for SMBs. This meant that their backup, recovery, and cybersecurity requirements weren’t as high as their larger peers’, and in turn less investments were made in keeping critical data and systems secure.

As 2022 progressed, that norm rapidly changed.

Ransomware has transformed into a business type of its own, with Ransomware-as-a-Service models, organized programmers providing regular patches and updates, and entire departments dedicated to extorting and processing payments that enable malicious actors to grow their attacks at scale. Some ransomware groups even have toll-free phone numbers that victims are told to call for more instructions, and chat support teams that have queues of victims waiting to pay.

Like all businesses, they need to produce a profit. Cyberattacks on enterprises have become time-intensive, with uncertain success. Even if malicious actors can breach the increased defenses made possible by improved firewalls, anti-spam tools, and virus blockers, their intrusions are increasingly discovered and rooted out by sophisticated cyberthreat detection and response before they can launch the full attack and lock down the victim’s systems. When the attackers can make their ransomware demand, they are increasingly being rebuffed thanks to their victims’ growing ability to fully recover their data and environments with managed backup and recovery services, and reluctant insurance companies balking at the claims.

From the attackers’ point of view, shifting their efforts to less protected, unsuspecting small and medium businesses makes good business sense. While the revenue per attack may be less, the number of attacks and success rate more than makes up the difference. As a result, many SMBs have been devastated in 2022 by downtime, data loss and egress, system corruption, compliance liabilities, steep insurance deductibles and premiums, and reputational damage. For some, these impacts have led to permanent business closure.

As we near the end of 2022, businesses and organizations of all sizes now require enterprise-grade data protection, disaster recovery, and cybersecurity to ensure their business continuity into 2023 and beyond. Thankfully, there are flexible and cost-efficient services available such as Warm Site Disaster Recovery.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Has Changed the Playing Field

As threat actors become more prevalent, organized, and multi-pronged in their attacks, businesses need a more coordinated strategy to guard their three main attack surfaces – endpoints, networks, and cloud/SaaS – 24/7. Realistically, most businesses lack the resources to ensure that level of coverage, or the expertise required to keep up with the rapidly evolving threat landscape.

With the necessity, came the invention. Managed Detection and Response Services simplify cybersecurity management with all-in-one 24/7 analyst-verified threat data and prioritized, actionable observations and recommendations to identify and counter cyberthreats before they take hold.

Now businesses of all sizes can block, discover, and disable attacks before they lock down systems and data, denying bad actors the chance to ransom organizations out of business and completely changing the threat landscape playing field.

Data Protection 2023 Trends Forecast: Cybersecurity, Backup and Disaster Recovery Services


Check out what we’re expecting to trend in Cybersecurity services and Backup and Disaster Recovery services in 2023 as we help organizations plan and implement their cyber resilient data protection strategies.

Mandatory Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Storagepipe predicts that threat actors will continue to target end users with phishing and social engineering campaigns by spoofing well-known, trusted, and widely utilized B2B brands such as Microsoft, parcel and mail delivery service providers such as FedEx and DHL, and financial institutions. Human resource brands such as benefit providers or payroll portals are excellent examples of where this trend could head next.

Targeting victims using social media platforms is likely to escalate as well, especially with mixed signals emerging at the end of 2022 around what constitutes a verified account, who is truly verified, and who can be trusted. Malicious actors will take advantage of the confusion and yet again hide behind brands and identities that end users consider safe sources and contacts.

Businesses should treat all emails with attachments and especially those that prompt the user to login to a portal or share their credentials with a high degree of suspicion. Education around these and other best practices will shift from ‘smart to have’, to ‘need to have’ in 2023 as insurance companies stipulate mandatory Cybersecurity Awareness Training for end users and anyone else that has access to a business’s data, systems, and applications.

Cyber Resiliency from Data Loss Prevention to Recovery

Cyber resiliency is top of mind for most IT leaders as they navigate an increasingly complex security and threat landscape where the likelihood of ransomware attacks has transitioned from ‘if’ to ‘when.’

Malicious actors are attacking companies of all sizes, necessitating an enterprise-quality strategy and scalable toolset for small, medium, and large organizations.

Storagepipe predicts a steep increase of small and medium sized businesses taking advantage of emerging and cost-effective services. This increase in mid-market adoption will be driven by IT departments facing an uphill battle with escalating compliance requirements and sophisticated attacks across their endpoints, networks, and SaaS. Realistically, most SMBs lack the resources or expertise to ensure that level of coverage on their own.

IT leaders should ask themselves, ‘Do I have the people and tools to protect the business’s most valuable information assets 24/7?’

2023 will see an increased awareness around the benefits of a multi-layered Cybersecurity framework to protect IT environments. Savvy businesses will look for solutions that provide cyber resiliency, which encompasses Data Protection and Cybersecurity services to deliver combined data loss prevention and recovery capabilities.

Incident and Cyberattack Prevention

Many IT departments are overwhelmed with ‘noise’ from false alarms, activity logs, and putting out day to day fires that stealthy attacks can go undetected until it is too late. Preventative methods such as Managed Detection and Response services simplify cybersecurity management with all-in-one 24/7 threat monitoring, analysis, and response across the three main attack surfaces – endpoints, networks, and cloud/SaaS. MDR services provide businesses with analyst-verified threat data and prioritized, actionable observations and recommendations to identify and counter cyberthreats before they take hold.

Often seen as a recovery tool, backups are earning a spot in the prevention toolbox too. Storagepipe has seen demand for immutable backup options surge. Immutability prevents threat actors from altering your local and cloud backup files, enabling resiliency from disaster by ensuring that you have an uncorrupted copy of your most critical data. Immutable backup copies also enable businesses to meet internal and external retention compliance requirements. Storagepipe provides cloud-based insider protection plus retention built-in with Veeam Backup and Recovery services. We also offer local and cloud-based immutable storage, along with air-gapped archival services for secure long-term data retention.

Regular Cybersecurity Awareness Training empowers employees to spot malicious emails and other attempts to trick them into revealing sensitive details, directly preventing incursions. Managed Anti-Spam services reduce the frequency that end users are faced with malicious email in the first place.

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

Recovery options in 2023 will broaden for companies of all sizes, with service providers developing solutions to help meet the demand for rapid recovery at different price points. While data protection was once considered cost-prohibitive for some small and medium-sized businesses, now disaster recovery services like Warm Site Disaster Recovery enable SMBs to achieve critical data and system recovery within a reasonable time and a reasonable budget.

As public cloud platforms continue to grow in popularity, companies will seek to build resilient and flexible backup and disaster recovery plans that grow at scale with their business, no matter where their data and systems reside. Adherence to the 3-2-1-1 Backup Rule as a best practice will continue to gain traction as it supports recovery across hybrid and cloud environments.

The 3-2-1-1 Backup Rule recommends organizations have 3 copies of their data. At least 2 of those backups should be stored on different media, 1 of which needs to be offsite, and 1 that is offline. The 3rd copy can be local, or in the cloud. Veeam Cloud Connect helps businesses to ensure they have a copy of their data offsite by easily extending to the cloud for online Backup, Replication and Disaster Recovery. Services like specialized Public Cloud Backup as a Service for Azure, AWS, and IBM Cloud will support secure public cloud adoption throughout 2023.

Storagepipe also offers pre-configured local Veeam Appliances equipped with immutable storage, providing rapid recovery capabilities from ransomware attacks and other urgent threats. Extended cloud immutability offers longer-term cloud recovery capabilities and is a popular option for many businesses as we head into 2023.

Microsoft 365 Data Protection Continues

In the rush to adopt, migrate, and deploy Microsoft 365 over the past couple of years, data protection considerations may have been overlooked by some organizations. While many appreciate the collaboration made possible with Microsoft 365, some are unaware that the data generated by these applications is their business’s responsibility to protect. Microsoft does not perform backups on your behalf, and they do not provide recovery services.

Microsoft’s Shared Responsibility Model states that they are responsible for ensuring that the platform remains accessible and available, while the customer is responsible for ensuring that their data is backed up and recoverable in the event of a disaster. If an adverse incident such as a ransomware attack strikes, Microsoft will not recover your data for you.

The risk of falling victim to ransomware is ever-present, with phishing emails and their mishandling by end users continuing as the #1 vulnerability vector. Malicious actors took advantage of the trust people have in Microsoft’s brand by embedding well-known file types such as Excel and Word with malicious links and code and adding them as email attachments from addresses that include ‘outlook’ in their domain. These tactics almost doubled in popularity between Q1 and Q2 2022 and are likely to continue as major threats well into 2023.

Storagepipe will continue to spread awareness of these dangers to your data and work with businesses of all sizes to put effective managed anti-spam, backup, and disaster recovery plans in place.

How MSPs Can Generate High-Margin MRR with Cloud, BaaS & DRaaS


Listen in as Charles Weaver from MSPAlliance chats with Steven Rodin, CEO of Storagepipe on how responsive backup and disaster recovery services enable business continuity for MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and their customers. Want to listen on the go? Check it out on Apple Podcasts here.

• Enabling new high-margin monthly recurring revenue streams
• Leverage an experienced disaster recovery partner to help win deals
• Offer the latest hybrid, public cloud and Microsoft 365 data protection services

Business Continuity for Data, SaaS, and Systems in the Cloud

Steven and Charles discuss the shift to remote and hybrid work over the last two years that appears to have staying power for the foreseeable future, further driving and sustaining the migration to SaaS, cloud and hybrid models. IT teams have been migrating applications and operations to private and public clouds at an accelerated pace to optimize and future-proof their organizations. With the COVID-19 pandemic, those cloud migration efforts may have been stepped up by necessity as teams became dependent on remote tools for distributed workforces and customers.

Have organizations left some cybersecurity, data protection and business continuity fundamentals behind in their rush to the cloud? Is making the shift from legacy on-premises tech to new, outsourced cloud-based platforms causing new challenges, especially when constrained by time and business pressures?

Listen to the podcast here or on Apple Podcasts to find out what the future holds.

“We’ve been talking 24 hours a day for two years on cybersecurity issues, and it’s not like storage has been edged to the side and it’s not like people aren’t doing storage anymore, but it just seems like we need to make sure that we’re talking about all the elements of the security and operational viability stack,” points out Charles Weaver, host of the MSPAlliance MSPZone Podcast.

Deliver Profitable Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Services for Your Customers

Steven and Charles also discuss what MSPs need to provide in today’s connected and security conscious world to satisfy customers’ requirements for backup and recovery services. Customers are looking to safeguard their organizations against ransomware, user errors, and other evolving threats to their business operations and reputation. MSPs that add these services to their offering can attract new customers, cross-sell to existing customers, and increase customer retention all while generating high-margin monthly recurring revenue (MRR).

“To give advice to the MSPs out there, Backup for Microsoft 365 is a great entry-point for many customers. It’s a good way of landing new customers, it’s a good add-on service if you’re already working with a customer that’s on Microsoft 365; so, it’s a great opportunity to show additional value to your customer base,” shares Steven Rodin, CEO at Storagepipe.


– Steven Rodin, Storagepipe CEO

MSPs often face challenges with financial resources to develop in-house talent, systems, and processes. Partnering with a data protection and recovery specialist can fast-track MSPs on the path to successful portfolio expansion and new revenue streams without the typical start-up headaches. “A lot of small and mid-sized MSPs might already be doing backup, but now they want to get into disaster recovery and that’s where they turn to us to get more advanced and they maybe want to get into systems that they haven’t dealt with before,” says Rodin.

Implementing Internal MSP Backup and Disaster Recovery Helps Showcase Services to Customers

Weaver recalls a handful of conversations with folks in the industry who have pointed out that it is important for the MSPs themselves to be backing up their operational mission-critical data. “Every MSP ought to be doing at the very minimum everything that they do for their customers, on themselves. I mean, that seems to me just common sense.”


– Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance MSPZone Podcast Host

Rodin agrees. “I think that MSPs need to treat themselves like they would their customers, in a lot of ways. If they’re expecting their customers to take on new services and buy into the disaster recovery and backup space, then MSPs have to do it themselves. You want to be able to showcase the services that you sell by doing it internally. In fact, some MSPs that we’ve recently signed up, actually started with us internally and they liked the service so much that they started introducing it to their customers. I think that’s the key thing, because customers always want to know that you’re eating your own dog food, you’re following your own advice.”


– Steven Rodin, Storagepipe CEO

Listen in to this episode of MSPZone to learn how Managed Service Providers can offer data protection to customers now and start generating new MRR with cloud backup and disaster recovery as a service.

Data Protection Trends: Storagepipe Veeam Cloud Service Provider Partner Fireside Chat


Listen to our fireside chat interview with Anthony Spiteri, Senior Global Technologist at Veeam Software®, and Steven Rodin, CEO at Storagepipe as they discuss data protection trends impacting businesses, service providers, and platform vendors. Learn how Veeam Cloud Service Provider Storagepipe is rising above the challenges with a focus on customer-centric responsiveness and automation and providing innovative backup and disaster recovery service offerings tailored to customers’ specific requirements.

Get Anthony and Steven’s hard-earned insights around future-looking business risks and opportunities that are developing out of the disruptive shift from office-based workforces to flexible remote work-from-anywhere models, and what that means for IT professionals and the data workloads that they protect.



Steven commented that with the almost overnight shift to remote work, everyone had to quickly adjust; the Storagepipe team and their customers alike. “There were more people wanting to make decisions more rapidly. Organizations needed to make important IT decisions even during the pandemic, and they needed a partner that could take action quickly, that could respond to their needs, and could turn around complex solutions rapidly. So that was what we were focusing on, not just that we had the right solution but that we were delivering it quickly and effectively, even from a team working remotely.”



When asked what the important trends he’s seen come out of the pandemic, Anthony shared, “I think when you think about where we’ve come from over the past 10 years, with the move from on-premises service, virtualization, modern data platforms, software as a service, infrastructure as a service, just general cloud adoption, it’s been almost this Goldilocks situation where the time is just right for businesses to move more into their transformational journey.” What was his second big data protection trend? Watch the video to find out!

Many businesses with on-premises workloads are migrating some systems to the cloud and often end up with hybrid cloud environments in need of unified protection. Discover how Veeam managed services are developed and supported by Storagepipe’s in-house technical team of certified Veeam Architects and Engineers, who work closely with Veeam as new and enhanced functionalities continue to be added to the data protection platform.

For example, over the past 18 months Storagepipe has seen several services boom in popularity as businesses and organizations accelerate their digital transition to cloud-based data protection. “We’ve seen some tremendous momentum behind our Office 365, Microsoft 365 backup solution. That’s been a really big driver, from one of Veeam’s key products,” shared Steven. “Customers at first were looking to do that themselves and looking to do that on-prem, but we saw more customers moving to outsource that, moving to a managed service especially when they were out of the office.”



When discussing data protection trends, the conversation often naturally turns to how to safeguard workloads living in the public cloud, or in a hybrid cloud model. “We’ve taken the time during the pandemic to invest in our public cloud services, and that’s been booming,” Steven shares. “We’ve seen the Azure and the AWS backup solutions that we’ve launched as a managed cloud service during the pandemic, really grow in the last year since launching with Veeam’s Backup for Azure and Backup for AWS.”

Veeam V10: What’s New for Data Protection and Recovery?


Congratulations to Veeam for their release of V10! Storagepipe is very excited about this release, and our team has already been working with pre-release versions to get ready for the big launch. As a result, the team at Storagepipe is ready day 1 to provide our small, medium, and enterprise customers with a rapid and seamless transition.

Veeam is delivering a wide range of enhancements and great new features for cloud backup and recovery in the new Veeam Backup and Replication 10 (V10) release. Our data protection and recovery experts have been exploring what’s new in V10, and we can’t wait to share with you information about the many features that are strengthening data protection and improving the speed of disaster recovery.

Have questions? Talk to us about V10!

Veeam Cloud Connect Improvements

Storagepipe leverages Veeam’s Cloud Connect to provide a fully integrated, fast and secure way to back up, restore, replicate, and failover to the cloud. Storagepipe’s local backup appliance options, combined with offsite backup copies, gives a complete out-of-band protection solution where backups are taken and then automatically sent to the Storagepipe cloud.

Veeam 10’s new Cloud Tier Copy Mode will allow us to improve offsite performance by maximizing customer bandwidth and instantly copying changed blocks when local backups are complete. Additional protections against ransomware and malware are also available since copied backups can be made immutable to protect against deletion, hackers, and malicious insider threats.

The new V10 Backup Resume and Cache functionality for Veeam Cloud Connect ensures that direct-to-cloud Workstation backups never-fail, even when someone shuts off their laptop or otherwise interrupts the process. Instead, the data is cached, the process is paused, and the backup resumes once the Workstation is live again.

Storagepipe provides data security and performance for the cloud with WAN acceleration and encryption of data during transport and at rest to provide fast and secure replications and backup copies. With V10, this has become further optimized with a new performance mode that better utilizes your Internet and Wide Area Network (WAN) capacities.

V10 also includes enhancements for some platforms, such as the new Linux Backup Proxies and new Linux VIX Support that enable the same scale that you expect from Windows based operations, without sacrificing on cost and security.

Veeam Availability Platform Improvements

Veeam V10 further improves the visibility across physical, virtual, cloud and SaaS operations with the Veeam Availability Platform. Customers will really appreciate the complete solution to evolve the way they manage data, from policy-based to behavior-based. This makes it smarter, self-governing, and ensures availability across any application and cloud infrastructure.

Visibility and control via a single platform provide:

  • Orchestration of availability, agility, and acceleration across infrastructures and workloads
  • Monitoring and intelligent analysis of data and the systems utilizing it
  • Integrations and interfaces across a large ecosystem of Veeam and Storagepipe partners

Rolling out the new Availability Platform on Storagepipe Veeam Appliances to protect VMWare, Hyper-V and Nutanix is starting with the release of v10. The many improvements and enhancements enable our customers to modernize their availability practices, achieve improved data management, and ultimately drive better business outcomes in both a painless and seamless fashion.

Enhanced NAS Backup

Storagepipe has been waiting like many others for Veeam’s release of NAS capability, and it has clearly been worth the wait. Our testing shows an effective solution to modernize and simplify the protection of large file shares and file servers.

The powerful NAS backup, monitoring, and reporting capabilities come with built-in CRC support for rapid and reliable backups of NFS, SMB/CIFS share and file servers, eliminating the need for specialized storage for unstructured file data and servers.

We are excited about incorporating NAS protection into the overall Veeam service portfolio while maintaining the ease of use and powerful capabilities of the Veeam solutions.

Next Generation Instant VM Recovery

V10 enables faster restorations with their Next Generation Instant VM Recovery® Engine.

Storagepipe testing reveals significant advantages with the new Instant Recovery Engine including additional data recovery and portability options, enabling you to instantly recover any Veeam backup to VMware VSphere and Hyper-V within minutes – reducing your downtime and damage to your business.

We also think that the new ability to restore from disks instead of large VMs makes it possible to improve our customer’s realized recovery time objectives (RTOs) for bare-metal hosted VMs.

By working with Storagepipe to identify your priority data, applications, and systems pre-data disaster, when a natural or manmade disaster does strike, the Storagepipe team can further reduce your recovery time by utilizing this new feature to restore in order of criticality and dependency.


Storagepipe is pleased to see that V10 brings new resiliency features to protect from local storage or site wide production outages. This allows for recovery and rebuild from object storage, as well as new protections for public, private, and hybrid cloud with enhanced object storage integration, object lock functionality, and immutable backups.

These protections include preventative safeguards against ransomware, insider threats, and user error by air gapping for the cloud with intelligent immutability mode for Cloud Tier, new to V10. Storagepipe’s S3 Compatible Cloud Storage and our capacity tier options for Cloud Connect archiving ensures offsite data protection along with data security and redundancy.

V10 also builds on previously released security enhancements for Veeam backup for Office 365 that Storagepipe has already rolled out in our Cloud to Cloud Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 for a truly powerful SaaS data protection solution.

Business Continuity and High-Availability


When Storagepipe first launched in 2001, the company exclusively offered online backup (at that time called “managed backup”) services to help businesses meet their business continuity requirements.

In response to customer demand, Storagepipe has since expanded its services portfolio to include new, forward-looking cloud services that solve next-generation data protection problems. Some of these new services include things such as synchronization, data archiving, business continuity, high-availability and disaster recovery services.

In this interview with the Startup Success podcast, we discuss the specifics of our high-availability and business continuity services, and why these types of services solve important emerging problems for today’s SMBs.

Storagepipe takes best-of-breed enterprise business continuity solutions, and makes them available in an as-a-Service model. Without Storagepipe, these services would be inaccessible to SMBs because of this high cost and significant capital investment required for hardware, software and services.

Accessible Business Continuity for SMBs

With Storagepipe, everything is bundled together in a cost-effective way, and customers only pay for what they need. It’s another way that Storagepipe provides SMB technology buyers with the same level of VIP service that’s normally only offered to large enterprises.

With Storagepipe’s high-availability service, client systems are replicated to Storagepipe’s datacenter, and the client’s primary datacenter is monitored for health. In the event that the client’s primary datacenter goes down or becomes unavailable, operations can immediately switch over to Storagepipe’s datacenter. Storagepipe’s mirrored copies of the client’s servers will act as temporary emergency failover systems until the primary systems can be repaired and brought back into availability.

Large companies already operate redundant datacenters for business continuity and high availability purposes. However, small businesses with the same availability requirements simply could not afford this kind of backup and redundancy to maintain uptime for their own equally critical business systems and disaster recovery capabilities.

Storagepipe helps empower small businesses by providing them with these same capabilities, in a way that’s much more accessible.
