ALTOVAULT, powered by Autonomy’s LiveVault
Reliable backup and recovery are critical to today's information-driven business. Combining proven disk and online technologies, ALTOVAULT provides a fully managed service in the private cloud that automates, streamlines, and reduces the complexity of server backup. With proactive administration and monitoring of data, the service removes the burden of managing the complex and error-prone data protection process, so IT resources can focus on core projects instead of backup chores.
Suitable for all sizes of organisations in South Africa and beyond, ALTOVAULT, powered by Autonomy’s LiveVault, is an award-winning technology to provide online server backup and data recovery using extremely low bandwidth. ALTOVAULT is a highly reliable, online automated backup and recovery service that assures fast and accurate restoration following data loss or destruction.
Because all processes are automated, varied policies can be chosen so that, depending on a customer’s priorities, backup can be set as little as every 15 minutes for crucial data, down to once a week for least important files. In this way, data is protected as it is created, and in the process, nearly 100 recovery points are provided daily. Continuous backup enables organizations to choose the exact version of the file to recover from numerous point-in-time versions each day, for vastly improved Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
Once-a-day backups leave you vulnerable to data losses and trouble recovering data quickly in the event of a data corruption, virus' or other disasters. On the other hand, because of detailed version control, LiveVault allows users to go back to the file immediately before the disaster, thereby minimizing downtime and inconvenience. Minimal staff intervention is required, eliminating time-consuming procedures which are also prone to inconsistency and human error.
ALTOVAULT is a fully managed service in Altonet's private cloud that automates, streamlines, and reduces the complexity of server backup. ALTOVAULT removes the burden of managing the complex and error prone data protection process, allowing organizations to focus their budgets and resources on long-term strategic initiatives instead of costly, manual tasks.
Data is moved offsite to secure, mirrored data centers; data is completely secure and protected at every step of the way, using stringent procedures, protocols, and standards. ALTOVAULT encrypts all data at the source using 256-bit AES encryption with a unique key.
For an additional layer of protection, ALTOVAULT uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to establish a secure, resilient communication tunnel to the geographically separated offsite Altonet data centres located at Teraco in Isando, Johannesburg and Rondebosch, Cape Town, with automatic bi-directional mirroring of all stored data between the two sites.
ALTOVAULT is powered by Autonomy, which is the largest private cloud computing vendor in the world, with over 31 petabytes under management and growing by over one billion files per month. The Autonomy private cloud allows companies to cost-effectively outsource the storage and management of emails, documents, rich media files, instant messages, and all forms of web content. Autonomy cloud solutions operate across over 9,000 production servers hosted in data centers around the world.
Multiple integrity checks are completed on the transferred and stored data. Integrated and automatic processes allow our service to provide assured recoveries of backed up data.
ALTOVAULT offers the following advanced technologies to make recovery fast and easy:
ALTOVAULT reduces the cost of ownership associated with the entire backup infrastructure of disk, reduplication disk, tape, tape libraries, backup servers, and other components. Personnel costs of manually backing up to other media are eliminated. It also lowers the cost of downtime from an emergency due to data loss or destruction.
ALTOVAULT for DPM powered by Autonomy’s LiveVault is for Microsoft DPM customers who require secure and efficient off-site protection for DPM replica’s and the DPM backup server itself, or require longer backup histories than the customer’s DPM server caters for.
Microsoft and Autonomy engineers worked closely together to tightly integrate the offering so that customers can enjoy the benefits of simple, efficient offsite protection. This solution can be flexibly offered as a public, private or hybrid cloud service.

Autonomy Connected Backup is a fully automatic, efficient endpoint data protection solution that frees up IT time and resources, while ensuring secure and reliable backups based on proven technology from the undisputed industry leader.
Organisations face an enormous challenge when it comes to managing vast amounts of business data spread across employees PC’s and laptops. Sensitive data is vulnerable to loss, corruption and malware when moved to endpoints outside the network boundary. Employees are increasingly more mobile, making the risk and costs associated with data loss for an organization that much more significant.

Autonomy simplifies and automates the collection of data from all endpoints in a single, private cloud, then provides a data map of all the information collected. As a result, organizations know what they have, where to find relevant information fast, mitigate risk, ensure information is secure, retain and dispose of business information based on meaning and defensible policies. Autonomy Connected Backup automatically derives meaning from all information, reducing the corpus and moving the data into the archive, records management, early case assessment, or legal hold.
