Backup as a Service powered by NetApp.


Bechtle Clouds offers the ideal solution for offsite backups through the NetApp AltaVault appliance, used in Bechtle’s Tier 3+ data centre. This appliance encrypts local backups for S3, ensuring fast, secure and cost-effective storage in the cloud.


NetApp: The ideal starter cloud

NetApp backup appliances are ideal for both new and existing NetApp customers.


Flexible implementation and scalability.


AltaVault appliances start at capacities of 2 TB and scale up to 57 PB, beating all other cloud-integrated storage products on the market in terms of scalability. Choose a physical AltaVault appliance to benefit from cloud-integrated storage with incredible scalability, or go for a virtual option, which is ideal for SMBs looking for a backup-to-cloud solution for the first time.




Built-in data backup.


NetApp AltaVault cloud-integrated storage comes with SnapMirror software built in to deliver secure and efficient data replication. NetApp Snapshot technology creates lightweight virtual copies fast to back up data from all ONTAP-powered storage systems. Replication is limited to blocks that have actually been modified to further reduce I/O traffic.


Thanks to integrated SnapMirror software, both physical and virtual AltaVault appliances are perfect for long-term data archiving in the cloud.
