Simple, secure S3 object storage software for immutable backups

Deploy fast, manage easily, master the 3-2-1-1 rule

Your last line of defense against any threat to data recoverability? A cyber-resilient storage solution.

Scality ARTESCA is the simplest and most secure S3 object storage software for immutable backups. 

Lightweight in design, ARTESCA enables hassle-free, efficient growth from a single physical server or virtual machine all the way to 5 petabytes of usable capacity.

Three deployment options — a secure software appliance, virtual appliance, and hardware appliance — offer maximum freedom of choice.

Get unbreakable ransomware protection and take control of what matters — no deep storage or OS experience required.

ARTESCA’s 5 levels of cyber resiliency

Application-level resiliency

  • Amazon S3 object locking immutability with configurable data retention policies and compliance mode
  • Veeam v12 “Direct to object” backups and SOSAPI support, plus automated enforcement of validated IAM access control policies

Network and data resiliency

  • Secure HTTPS/TLS S3 termination, plus AES 256-bit data encryption-at-rest
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) for secure UI logins, plus automated firewall rules on deployment

Storage resiliency

  • Distributed erasure coding renders data indecipherable to low-level and data exfiltration attacks; metadata in secure repository on intrinsically immutable object storage layer
  • 1 to 6 servers for growth to 5 PB with dual-level data protection

Geographic replication resiliency

  • Deploy ARTESCA in remote locations for immutable offsite storage
  • Eliminates the “all data in one place” problem

Core architecture-level resiliency

  • Integrated, security-hardened Linux operating system precludes root access, reduces exposure to CVEs to limit a wide range of attack threats
