Ransomware Protection of Backup data with NetBackup MSDP (Media Server deduplication pool)

Your Existing Data Protection May Not Be Enough. Backups safeguard critical data against common scenarios such as recovering from natural or man-made disasters, data corruption, or accidental deletions. However, ransomware attacks can stress existing data-protection infrastructure that may be built on legacy architectures, such as disk and tape, more than expected. First, if you’re already struggling with meeting recovery SLAs, a ransomware attack can exacerbate the situation with additional downtime. Second, your backup systems and data can be compromised, which could require you to reinstall and reconfigure your backup solution, before even contemplating data recovery. NetBackup can use FlashBlade as a target for deduplicated backups. This document covers using FlashBlade as storage for MSDP backups and FlashBlade is turned on taking SafeMode snapshots to mitigate the risk in case of any ransomware attack on the backed-up filesystem. This demo will walk you through the implementation of MSDP Ransomware protection with FlashBlade.

FlashBlade Ransomware Protection with NetBackup (non deduplication)

Ransomware Protection with FlashBlade and NetBackup

With a free and built in “Safe Mode Snapshot” feature with FlashBlade that enables the users to recover from the backup when they strike with Ransomware attack.

In case of ransomware attack the consequences can be dire – either you pay for freeing up your data or you gamble that you can recover from snapshots or backups. In this demo, I will walk you through on how to protect the backup data from Ransomware attack when pure storage FlashBlade is used as a storage target and Veritas NetBackup is used as a Backup application. What is a Safemode snapshot in FlashBlade?This is a feature on FlashBlade that will not let anyone eradicate the deleted snapshot, that means in the case of ransomware attack if the snapshot of the backup data is deleted it goes to a recycle bin and it gets saved there as read mode, and further it cannot be deleted.

When faced with a ransomware event or other data loss event, SafeMode Snapshots make restoring service simple.  When an attack is identified it is critical for the authorized administrator to reach out to Pure for assistance.

NetBackup Catalog Recovery, During the catalog recovery process, NetBackup services need to be shut down and restarted. One can generate the disaster recovery file from the recovered catalog backup image, and later can be used for disaster recovery purposes. The NetBackup master server can use this DR file to import all the images and devices information, and hence you can recover the catalog information.

PureStorage ObjectEngine Integration with Veritas NetBackup
Pure Storage ObjectEngine Integration with Veritas NetBackup

This demo is to describe how to configure Pure Storage ObjectEngine S3 Storage with Veritas NetBackup. Recently, Pure has announced the industry’s first Flash-flash-to-cloud ObjectEngine, and it’s build to restore data rapidly and leverage flash storage as a key enabler. This system can do faster random read operations than any other hard disk system. After this demo, the user will know how to configure ObjectEngine as a Cloud Storage provider on Veritas NetBackup.

Configure NetBackup Disk Pool and Storage Unit on PureStorage ObjectEngine
NetBackup DiskPool Configuration on s3 ObjectEngine

This is the second video in the series of ObjectEngine solutions with Veritas NetBackup. Following up on my previous video on how to configure ObjectEngine S3 on NetBackup. This video will walk you through on further configuring disk pool, (via creating a bucket on ObjectEngine), storage unit and storage unit group on NetBackup with ObjectEngine. One of the prereq for this demo is that you should already have all the nodes of the ObjectEngine cluster configured as a storage server on NetBackup. You need to keep in mind that there are three steps involved to complete this configuration. After watching this demo you will know how to configure the ObjectEngine as a storage server for data backup purposes.
