3X Systems Introduces Private Cloud Backup Appliance for Small and Medium Businesses

3X Systems today announced its line of portable Remote Backup Appliances (RBA) that enable businesses to easily deploy a private backup cloud that combines the benefits of high speed on-premise backup with the convenience of online remote backup for disaster recovery – without monthly recurring fees.

The 3X RBA® enables small and medium businesses (SMB) to perform their initial backup on premise using the local high speed network, then move the device offsite for continuous remote data protection and disaster recovery. Using its patent-pending locator service, the 3X RBA automatically connects to and backs up data from servers, desktops, roaming laptops and remote offices, regardless of the physical location of these endpoints or of the appliance itself. This unique private cloud architecture keeps data safe, private, easy to recover, and continuously in the possession of the organization.

“For small and medium businesses, implementing a disaster recovery and business continuity infrastructure remains difficult. Enterprise solutions are too complicated, while cloud backup services are slow and recurring fees can become prohibitive as storage requirements grow,” said Deni Connor, Principal Analyst for Storage Strategies NOW. “3X Systems has developed an innovative approach that blends elements of on-premise, remote, and cloud backup solutions in an affordable appliance. 3X is delivering enterprise capabilities lacking in cloud services, yet doesn’t require dedicated IT resources to manage.”

Total Data Privacy

To overcome the privacy drawbacks of cloud backup services, the 3X RBA stores data on a physical appliance that is owned and controlled by the business. All data on the device is protected by HIPAA Compliant 128-bit AES encryption with digital access keys, hardware signatures, IP filtering, and hierarchical permission levels of administrator authorization. Remote backup sessions are secured using SSL encryption at both ends of broadband connections to prevent data theft.

Total Data Recovery

The 3X RBA is designed to be administered by an IT professional, but also to be used comfortably by non-technical staff who can easily and safely recover their own files from a point-in-time restore via a simple interface. In addition, administrators can push restored files as needed to their original or new locations. The 3X RBA management system also provides detailed reporting and alerting capabilities for audit, troubleshooting, and to prevent data loss.

Total Data Mobility

With the RBA, data can be backed up from anywhere to anywhere using the system’s unique locator service technology which eliminates manual configuration of IP addresses, port numbers, and hostnames. In the event of a disaster or catastrophic data loss, the portable 3X RBA can be moved back onto the network for lightening fast data restore.

“Until now, SMBs that wanted to backup data on servers, desktops, and roaming laptops had two less than ideal options. Deploy and try to manage multiple solutions for local and remote backup, or use a limited functionality cloud service with unpredictable and escalating fees,” said Alan Arman, CEO and founder of 3X Systems. “3X Remote Backup Appliances combine the best features of local and remote backup, in an affordable, easy-to-use, and privacy-friendly form factor.”

Making Enterprise Capabilities Accessible to SMBs

The 3X RBA offers small and medium businesses advanced features typically associated with enterprise class products, such as deduplication, block level backup, common file elimination and more. Despite these high-end capabilities, the 3X RBA requires little ongoing administration and management after initial setup to provide a “set-it-and-forget-it” deployment experience.

Availability and Pricing

The 3X Remote Backup Appliance is available immediately from 3X Authorized Channel Partners worldwide. 3X RBA capacity ranges from 100GB to up to 2TB of backup space, with a new 6TB model currently in development. Pricing starts at $2,495 and includes an unlimited number of endpoint licenses and a full year of unlimited technical support and software upgrades.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
