Nebulon, unveiled Nebulon TimeJump, a solution architected to address key ransomware mitigation challenges faced by CIOs and CISOs. Nebulon TimeJump is the first and only combined server and storage solution architected to offer complete ransomware recovery in less than four minutes.
According to pro-consumer technology website Comparitech, an investigation of 186 ransomware attacks on US businesses in 2020 found that downtime costs alone totalled $20.9B, averaging a staggering $112M per attack. Bringing application data back online quickly, reliably, and at scale is imperative. Ransomware recovery solutions offered by traditional 3-tier and hyperconverged infrastructure vendors can address part of the problem with a “snapshot” of customer data. However, when ransomware strikes, the attack can infect operating systems and disable critical infrastructure, preventing immediate recovery from data snapshots. The resulting infrastructure recovery can take hours—or even days—and lead to unnecessary downtime costs.
Nebulon TimeJump provides four-minute restore capabilities not only for critical application data but also infected operating systems, so application infrastructure can be brought back online near-instantly. With the debut of TimeJump, IT organisations no longer have to suffer through a lengthy manual recovery of critical infrastructure. They can instead reduce application infrastructure recovery from hours or days to under four minutes.
“A ransomware attack on your business is more a case of when, not if. Therefore, any ransomware protection strategy must go beyond prevention tactics and incorporate rapid recovery to mitigate downtime and related costs,” said David Floyer, CTO and Co-Founder, Wikibon. “The recovery solution from Nebulon is independent of the servers and allows the restoration of both data and the underlying operating systems. This capability means IT can restore whole application clusters online in minutes.”
“Minimising the impact of ransomware attacks is critical for the continuous service delivery demanded by our clients. Therefore, naturally we implement preventative measures. Being able to recover quickly is imperative when—not if—ransomware strikes, but recovery tools aren’t accessible when their supporting infrastructure is infected.” said Damon Dance, Director of Sales, Inca Cloud. “Nebulon is our antidote to the paradox of management tools depending on the infrastructure they manage. If/when our infrastructure is ever compromised, Nebulon TimeJump will get our infrastructure back up and running so we can restore operations in minutes. No other combined server and storage solution on the market can do this that quickly.”
