Compass NAS Protector Gets Speedier Backups, Improved Policy-Based Management

Cobalt Iron is adding new features to its Compass NAS Protector backup platform, including faster backups and improved policy management, at no additional cost. .

The new features are designed to address deficiencies in traditional data backup which make it more costly, the company said.

"Protection of NAS data is typically inefficient and cumbersome, especially for very large NAS systems," said Rob Marett, chief technology officer at Cobalt Iron. "The Compass NAS Protector introduces proprietary NAS scanning and identification processes that optimize NAS data protection.”

The new Compass NAS Protector features provide an optimized approach, which:

  • Speeds up NAS file identification and data backups;

  • Allows flexibility and recovery;

  • Allows policy-based management at the file/subject level;

  • Simplifies and consolidates backup operations with the rest of enterprise data protection;

  • Gives a single data protection solution for traditional NAS filers and cloud NAS services;

  • Uses data reduction techniques, such as incremental forever backups, deduplication, and compression.

The new features are available automatically to existing customers. Further information can be found on Cobalt Iron's Compass portal.
