Bacula Systems and OCF partnership streamlines data backup and recovery for HPC
Bacula Systems and OCF have announced a strategic alliance that enables customers in the HPC, Storage, Cloud and AI space to more effectively protect their IT infrastructure. The strategic partnership allows HPC users to protect especially large and diverse IT environments with a single backup and recovery platform.
The partnership exploits OCF’s HPC expertise combined with Bacula’s highly scalable data backup and recovery software - providing a platform which reduces the risk of implementation, increases efficiency, protects from ransomware, and lowers costs.
‘Bacula Systems is proud to be working closely with OCF’ said Frank Barker, CEO of Bacula Systems. ‘OCF’s ability to combine individual technologies including Bacula’s unique backup and recovery software means that together we can deliver complete hybrid HPC, storage, cloud and AI solutions. Some of Bacula’s advanced features are Single File Restore, advanced deduplication technology and scalability that goes into the exabytes.’
‘OCF’s expertise in HPC integration perfectly complements Bacula’s capabilities in the HPC domain,’ said Laurence Horrocks-Barlow, technical director of OCF. ‘Today’s announcement underlines our mission to continue to deliver best in class solutions, technical expertise and managed service support to our valued customers.’
‘Bacula expects the HPC market to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of well above 5.5 per cent from 2020 to 2026. The ability of Bacula to process large volumes of data at higher speeds while lowering costs is prompting government departments, defence agencies, academic institutions, energy companies, and utilities to integrate it into their HPC systems’ said Alan Moon, territory manager UK and Ireland, Bacula Systems.
