Volta CloudCopy for AIX is a robust AIX Backup and Recovery solution which facilitates secure AIX backups to AWS S3. If you have been looking for an economical and easy-to-use backup and recovery solution for AIX, look no further. The solution requires AIX be at or above levels AIX 61 TL9 SP6, AIX 71 TL4, and AIX 72.
Secure backups to AWS S3
Volta CloudCopy eliminates the problems common to tape archives. Any mechanical solution is more failure-prone than a non-mechanical one. Restoring from tape takes a lot of time, and the handling of physical tapes is time consuming and error prone. With Volta CloudCopy, your data are stored in S3 in any of AWS’s data centers. No separate server is required to run the backup software.
Your data is encrypted at your site before being sent over the network to the public cloud. AWS-256-CBC is the default encryption method used by Volta CloudCopy. If you have another encryption method that you prefer, we can customize a solution.
Automated backups to AWS S3 are performed regularly by Volta CloudCopy Unattended backups of your rootvg (mksysb) and data volume groups are done at the intervals you specify. You can also create mksysb and data backups on demand. Systems administrators can receive text or email alerts advising to the success or failure of backup processes. Volta CloudCopy keeps logs of when backups were initiated and their status, as well as the output of the job.

Enable business continuity and meet SLAs for disaster recovery by making use of the replication technology you already own. Using menus and scripts, VoltaMirror extends the volume group to include remote site, mirrors the logical volumes, and synchronizes them as long as desired.
- This is cost-effective because it builds on native AIX capabilities you’re already paying for.
- Different storage systems can be used at the two sites.
- Replication can be synchronous or asynchronous.
- Scripting allows system administrator to initiate failover process and reduces error.
- Data is easily re-synched to main production site when back online.
- Data sheets are downloadable.
These days, we often hear of large companies getting hacked and customer information, such as usernames and passwords, being stolen. You may have noticed more companies launching dual-factor or multi-factor authentication mechanisms.
If your company has used AIX Operating System for many years, you’re well aware of the capabilities and security that is built within. However, dual-factor authentication is one glaring omission. Over the years many of our customers have asked if there were solutions out there for this problem. When we couldn’t find a suitable one, we decided to create our own.
VoltaAuthenticate for AIX consists of two major parts.
The first is the code that traps the attempted login. If a user can successfully log in based on knowledge of their password, the system then sends a text message with a completely random code to the user’s cell phone. The legitimate user will be able to log in, and if it was a bogus attempt, the legitimate user will receive a notification of the where and when the attempt occurred. The attempt is also logged in the system. The second part is a menu that allows the system administrator to add and delete users from the authorized user database, as well as view the activities log and session log. There is also a mechanism to back up the authentication system, including the database.
