Introduction to the 321 Backup Strategy

Optimizing your 321 backup strategy is crucial for ensuring the safety and availability of an organization’s data. With LEAN’s BaaS and Cohesity, you can enhance this widely accepted best practice, which involves maintaining three copies of the data stored on two different media, with one copy stored offsite. This approach minimizes the risk of data loss due to hardware failure, natural disasters, or other unexpected incidents while providing additional benefits offered by LEAN’s BaaS and Cohesity’s DataProtect.

LEAN’s BaaS Powered by DataProtect as SaaS: An Overview

LEAN’s Backup as a Service (BaaS), powered by Cohesity’s DataProtect is a powerful, comprehensive, and scalable data protection solution designed to meet the needs of modern enterprises. It offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model, providing businesses with the flexibility and efficiency needed to secure their data in an ever-evolving IT landscape.

Integrating LEAN’s BaaS with Your 321 Backup Strategy

LEAN’s BaaS can seamlessly integrate into your 321 backup strategy, enhancing its effectiveness and reliability. Here’s how:

  1. Three Copies of Data: Besides your production data (your 1st copy), take a primary and secondary backup following the 321 rule. This ensures that you always have access to the most recent version of your data, even in the event of a failure or data corruption.
  2. Two different Media: LEAN offers two options to satisfy this condition:
    1. The first option is to have your primary and secondary backups on LEAN’s cloud.  LEAN will ensure that your backups reside in two geographically separated locations.
    2. The second option is to add a physical appliance optimized for enterprise remote and branch offices (ROBO) on-premises to act as your primary backup and take a secondary cloud backup on LEAN’s cloud.
  3. One Copy Offsite: Whether you use the physical appliance as your primary backup media or choose the cloud backup media option, you will always have at least one copy of your data offsite.
