Here’s how Whitewater appliances protect data:
The backup application sends data to the Whitewater appliance, where it is deduplicated, compressed, and encrypted. The data is stored in local cache and also replicated to cloud storage.
Whitewater reads data from local cache, rehydrates it, and then provides it to the backup app without any cloud interaction.
For old or seldom accessed data, Whitewater first reads local cache and pulls missing missing segments from the cloud. It then integrates the data, rehydrates it, and provides it to the backup application.
