Solution Overview

The evolution of cloud technology saw cloud storage as a great tool to offload on-premise storage economics into the cloud. Thanks to ever-increasing Internet bandwidth and declining storage prices, keeping backups in the cloud has become a viable alternative to traditional on-site data storage for SMBs. Many companies often overlook key considerations when it comes to online backup, with Cloudberry Lab for CenturyLink Cloud, the user can be assured that important components are available, such as:

Reliable Cloud Storage that you control: When moving backup data off-site, a company should ensure the cloud storage service is reliable, cost-effective, yet high-performing. With CloudBerry Backup, you backup to customer-owned CenturyLink Cloud Storage, which you fully control and manage. Automate files and folders backup from your Windows desktop to the CenturyLink Cloud Object Storage for free using CloudBerry Backup with flexible scheduler and retention policies.

Data Security: Security is a top concern when business data is moved to the cloud. A company's private data could be compromised if the solution lacks the right features.

Restore Capabilities: Backup data stored at a remote facility should always be in a recoverable state, accessible at any time, and allow point-in-time object-level restore.

Direct data transfers: CloudBerry Backup doesn’t process your data on 3rd-party servers. All data transfers occur between the source instance and a storage account you control.

Restore is always free: You don't need a CloudBerry Backup commercial license to restore your data. You can configure your data retrieval right from the product activation screen.

Fast, Easy Deployment Options

CloudBerry Explorer provides a user interface to CenturyLink Cloud storage accounts allowing for managing and moving files and folders across your local and cloud storage the same way you do on your local computer.

CenturyLink Storage Management: Create, browse, and delete containers and files in CenturyLink Object Storage.

Resumable Upload: Continue uploading files from the point of interruption.

CLI: Automate with Command Line Interface.
