Silicon Sky provides backup Immutability with the use of Veeam Backup & Replication v10 object lock functionality and Silicon Sky’s S3 compatible Cloud Object Storage. The object lock functionality prohibits deletion of data from object storage until the Immutability expiration date is met. Immutability expiration is managed and defined by the Backup Administrator in the Veeam Backup & Recovery console.

Adhere to Veeam’s data protection best practices, ensuring data is protected from any type of threat, including ransomware. Veeam best practice for data protection adheres to the 3-2-1-1 rule: three different copies of data, on two different media types, one copy is off-site and one copy is offline.

Veeam customers can leverage Veeam Backup & Replication’s Scale-Out Backup Repositories to ensure placement of backups on the appropriate tier. Performance tier should be local (LAN, SAN, NFS) to the backup server and Silicon Sky’s Cloud Object Storage can be used for the capacity tier. Create a backup job within Veeam Backup & Replication that creates a second copy of your backup or the movement of backup files to Silicon Sky’s Cloud Object Storage for long- or short-term retention.
