Technology Alliance Program

SoftIron works with a select group of technology partners under our alliance program where we can add value for customers by way of collaboration and/or testing of our combined technologies.



Access Technology Alliance Partner

Veeam® is aleader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management™, providing a single platform for modernizing backup, accelerating hybrid cloud and securing data.

Our HyperDrive platform has been tested and verified compatible “Veeam Ready — Object with Immutability” making it the perfect platform for customers wishing to deploy Veeam’s backup and replication capabilities in a hybrid cloud architecture.

S3 Object Lock makes data immutable by blocking object version deletion during a customer-defined retention period. This means retention policies can be enforced adding a layer of data protection (making it less vulnerable to hackers via encryption or deletion) and/or for regulatory compliance.
