Lortu Data Appliance (LDA) Family

The LDA family minimizes the amount of storage required to keep your data safe. Our knowledge, acquired after years of research and innovation in backup and storage, and careful attention to customer needs, has resulted in the following products:

LDA-Mini

LDA-Mini was designed for small companies and professionals that can easily install this appliance in their offices thanks to its ultra-thin chassis design, low noise and power consumption. Each appliance can store around 250 full backups with up to 80GB of data per day and replicate all this data remotely through a low bandwidth connection such as ADSL.
• Chassis: NETTOP (190mm / 135mm / 25mm).
• Capacity/day: 80 GB.
• Estimated virtual capacity: 20 TB
• Low noise and power consumption

LDA1

LDA1 was designed for small companies which can easily install this appliance in their offices thanks to its small size.

LDA1 can store around 250 full backups with up to 300GB of data each day and replicate all this data remotely through a low bandwidth connection such as ADSL.

• Chassis: Desktop
• Capacity/day: 300 GB.
• Estimated virtual capacity: 75 TB

LDA 2

LDA2 was designed for companies that require to store from several hundred of GB to few TB of data per day. This model can store around 250 full backups with up to 1200GB of data each day and replicate all this data remotely through a 2Mb connection.


• Chassis: RACK.
• Capacity/day: 1200 GB.
• Estimated virtual capacity: 250 TB
• Redundancy: RAID 6 and NIC

Product

LDAs are based on an appliance model: all the hardware and software has been designed and tuned for this specific mission.

Storage

Depending on the model, an LDA can store hundred of backups with up to 1.2TB of full daily backups for an estimated virtual capacity of around 250 TB of data per appliance.

Deduplication

LDA's deduplication technology is capable of reducing data storage requirements by about 100 times. This means that a backup of 1TB can be reduced as small as 10GB of data.

Replication

Thanks to its data reduction capabilities, LDA can replicate all the data stored each day to a remote location through a standard ADSL connection.

Lortu offers this feature as an optional service, so we do not require our customers to purchase another appliance for remote backups or to have their own remote facilities.

Interface

LDA can be accessed as a NAS appliance through CIFS protocol. This is the remote file access protocol used by windows and compatible with most of the OS.

Client OS

LDAs support any OS which can “see” a windows shared folder. Therefore, any software or hardware that can copy files to a Windows server can store data on an LDA without it being necessary to purchase additional components or agents.

Backup

LDAs are compatible with any software which can backup to disk. You will not need to change your present backup software or acquire additional software or agents.

Administration

LDAs can be managed through a Web console from any PC with network access to an LDA, as long as that PC is enabled in the LDA’s firewall policies.

Connectivity

LDAs only require an outbound connection through HTTP protocol. It is not necessary to open any port in the company firewall.

The user can configure the time when an LDA should reduce the throughput used for replication.

Confidentiality

Data is encrypted with an AES algorithm before being replicated to Lortu’s datacenter.

Security

LDAs run a firewall which is integrated into the system, so only the PCs and servers defined by the administrator have access to LDA interfaces (NAS and web console).

Retention policies

LDAs have an internal procedure which prevents the system from running out of space: they delete the oldest files so you can always store new data. This process is automatic, freeing the user from the task of monitoring the LDA’s free space and doing a manual removal of the old files.

Additionally LDAs provide very flexible configurations for retention policies. The user can define daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual retention policies.

Alerts and reports

The user can configure the reception of several types of reports from an LDA.

User accounts

The administrator can create the desired number of users with access to LDA.
