Datadobi has announced that it has validated Google Cloud Storage as an endpoint for data replication in addition to data migration. As a result, users of the DobiProtect software suite can now replicate data held on any S3-compatible object storage to Google Cloud Storage or vice versa.
The news comes shortly after the company announced support for Azure Blob storage in the DobiProtect software suite.
Datadobi’s validation of Google Cloud Storage enables organizations to build a true multi-cloud strategy with their data available at multiple Hyperscalers. Customers can host their data both on any S3 object storage service and on Google Cloud Storage, and use DobiProtect to set up permanent data replication between these two clouds.
In addition, a Datadobi-powered multi-cloud strategy avoids the need to rely on a single cloud vendor from an availability, a security, and a cost perspective.
Datadobi can enable the initial migration and then set up the subsequent replication stream. This is a one-time copy which ends in the cutover step, during which the data authority is moved from the source to the destination storage service or system. During this cutover, the Datadobi software provides a chain of custody containing an auditable proof of which data was moved during the data migration and confirming the integrity of the data.
