Honeycomb is your long-term storage solution. Our Honeycomb virtual tapes are created directly from your primary cloud storage so there is no extra data to transfer.
With additional economies of scale, you can store more, with less cost through our Virtual Tape Library.
As more businesses start to recognise the cost of replacing their ageing tape infrastructure is significant, they are turning to cloud-based solutions. When it comes to tape, low-cost should not be associated with low quality – Honeycomb VTL is still a highly available and durable storage cluster built for 25+ years retention. The investment in a Virtual Tape Library (VTL) and the ability to preserve hundreds of terabytes, is a well-understood and widely supported storage solution.
One of the biggest breakthroughs for companies trying to move large amounts of data is the ability to seed data to Probax servers via cross-connect or external HDD. We’ve wrapped a unique value proposition around Honeycomb VTL Archive storage that makes it incredibly cost-effective when compared, spec for spec, with other archival options.
We mean it when we say there is no hidden fees with our Archive storage; you get your quantity and quality. Your data will be just as durable as our Hyperformance option.
Data in Honeycomb VTL that needs to be recovered is simply pushed back into your Hyperformance cloud storage. From here you can have your backup software access it or it can be shipped to you.
All configuration is done through Control; Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly restore points are set up and data gets moved or copied from our Hyperformance storage. Your data is “air-gapped” and securely stored – and cannot be deleted before the set expiry time.
