May was a busy month at VMsources. I had business trips all over the state as well as to Mexico and New Jersey, while the rest of the team was busy upgrading systems and adding solutions to our portfolio.
It is an immensely exciting time in the world of Information Technology. World events over the last month seem to be decidedly highlighting the importance of protecting your Organizations data, and being able to recover quickly when things do happen.
Many proprietary solutions promise "comprehensive security," however that notion is silly at face value. No one solution can offer comprehensive security any more than it could offer defense against Martian attacks! No matter how intelligent the solution, it simply can't guarantee protection against unknown attack vectors!
At VMsources, we believe that the key to Business Continuity and Security is first correctly applying known Best Practices and Security Policies, then investing in best-of-breed active security solutions and Endpoint Protection. There's no point in putting bars on the windows if you leave the doors wide open, swinging in the breeze!
Bottom line is this: How can we help?

vCenter Server remote code execution vulnerability
The vSphere Client (HTML5) contains a remote code execution vulnerability in a vCenter Server plugin. VMware has evaluated the severity of this issue to be in the Critical severity range with a maximum CVSSv3 base score of 9.8.
Anybody with port 443 access to your vCenter could potentially execute commands against vCenter with unrestricted privileges
In order to support our clients expanding Offsite Backup and data storage needs, VMsources had added 600TB of additional Enterprise Storage (Random Access). We are ready to provision Shares, LUNs, S3 Object Storage and Veeam Repositories to help keep your data safe, no matter the reason. All data is backed by a RAID 6 (dual-parity) configuration for your long-term assurance and protection.

Veeam Immutable Backups protect data!
Veeam Immutable Backups are an integral part of any Ransomware Protection plan. You can deploy Veeam Immutable Repositories on-premise by creating a Linux server with adequate storage, or you can use us for your Immutable Backups and accomplish both the goals of Offsite Backup and Immutable Backup in one.
Veeam Immutable Backups inherently protect your Organization from Ransomware because the backups can not be changed, overwritten, encrypted or deleted for a period of time that you specify. That means that your data will be available even if Ransomware strikes!
Veeam Immutable Backups are compliant with SEC 17a-4(f), FINRA 4511(c) and CFTC 1.31(c)-(d) regulations, as audited by Cohasset Associates, read the report here -
Veeam Backup & Replication Compliance assessment report.VMsources has recently lowered out price for Veeam Immutable Repositories to the same as NTFS and ReFS, $0.05/GB/mo. The only additional cost is the Linux Server required as a mount point (which we will build and maintain for you!).
Veeam Repositories on Windows ReFS
Veeam Repositories on Windows ReFS have been the standard for several years. Veeam Repositories on ReFS provide the maximum efficiency through the use of a larger recommended block size of 64K (as compared to the largest block size on Immutable Backups of 4K), however the difference in performance is often negligible. One big advantage of Veeam Repositories on ReFS is that you can use your existing Veeam Server as the mount point, with no need for an extra Linux system. Veeam Repositories on ReFS and NTFS can not be made Immutable.
