BlueXP backup and recovery provides a single control plane to implement your entire backup strategy. It allows you to create secure copies of your ONTAP data, and then store them in a location of your choice both on-premise or in the cloud. This includes ONTAP systems, as well as Amazon S3, Azure Blob storage, Google Cloud storage, ONTAP S3 or StorageGRID appliances on-premises.

Reliable and direct backup

Easily align with the 3-2-1 backup strategy with local snapshots, replications and remote backup copies

  • Independent and reliable backup, storing the data in a read-only snapshot hosted locally, on another ONTAP system or separately from the ONTAP cluster
  • No middleman: Back up directly from ONTAP to the destination without adding a point of failure
  • The backup copy changes the data format to object storage, which has a 99.999999999% data durability

Faster, more efficient back up for PB-scale data
