Veeam + Scality ARTESCA

Make your last line of defense your best.

Together, Scality ARTESCA and Veeam form an unbreakable last line of defense — backup storage and recovery — against the cyber threats of today and tomorrow.

Immutability is just the beginning.

The storage systems of the past weren’t designed to withstand the volume and sophistication of attacks they now face.

They may be immutable, but they aren’t unbreakable.

Protecting data against the widest possible range of current and future threats requires a new way of thinking — one where immutability is just one piece of the puzzle.

ARTESCA’S 5 levels of unbreakable cyber resilience

Looking to bounce forward fast in the face of any threat?

Scality ARTESCA is the only backup storage solution that enables end-to-end cyber resilience with unbreakable data protection at every level of the system — from API to architecture.

1. API-level resilience

By mimicking application commands, ransomware attackers attempt to encrypt, modify, or delete stored backups.

ARTESCA stops these attacks in their tracks with support for S3 Object Locking APIs, ensuring backups are immutable the instant they’re created.


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

2. Data-level resilience

While application-level immutability provides powerful defense against ransomware, it can’t prevent data exfiltration attacks or other malicious access on the network or by unauthorized admins.

ARTESCA thwarts would-be attackers with advanced data-at-rest encryption, user authentication, secure connections and more.


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

3. Storage-level resilience

If attackers can’t defeat higher-level defenses, they may attempt to penetrate the system below the API layer in order to modify data on the physical disk drives themselves.

With ARTESCA, the success of these low-level attacks is virtually impossible thanks to distributed erasure coding technology that renders data indecipherable.


  • Data is encoded and spread across the cluster, impeding an attacker’s ability to extract meaningful data
  • Metadata in secure repository on intrinsically immutable object storage layer
  • Scale-out from 50TB to multi-petabytes with dual-level data protection for up to 11 nines of durability

4. Geographic-level resilience

Data stored in a single location is particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks. Even air-gapped systems can be breached by attackers with unauthorized physical access, or destroyed by fires, flooding, or other natural disasters.

To eliminate the risks of single-site backup storage, ARTESCA employs replication for mirroring of data across data centers — and enables easy multi-site deployment for application-managed replication.


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

5. Architecture-level resilience

Storage solutions designed before the ransomware era can be defeated by attacks below the API, network and administrative layers.

ARTESCA is true object storage solution that’s intrinsically immutable, meaning data is always preserved in its original form once stored. A security-hardened operating system mitigates the impact of common vulnerabilities and exposures.


  • Integrated Linux operating system precludes root access and reduces exposure to CVEs

“ARTESCA is an ideal object storage solution to deliver on the promise of Veeam’s 3-2-1-1-0 rule.

Our joint customers gain ransomware protection and data immutability without sacrificing performance.”

Bounce forward — fast.

Every stat on downtime tells the same story: Avoid it at all costs — or it’ll cost you. When you’re evaluating backup storage solutions, performance is a critical measure of effectiveness and value.

With ARTESCA, you can restore hundreds of VMs in a matter of hours. No restore performance penalties, ever.


Veeam & ARTESCA play nicely.

We’re tightly integrated — and have the certifications to prove it. Purpose-built for backup, ARTESCA seamlessly extends Veeam Data Platform’s enterprise-grade capabilities with support for its complete feature set.

Our handy Veeam Assistant assures foolproof (and ransomware-proof) configuration of Veeam + ARTESCA.


Enjoy low TCO, no surprises.

Easy to deploy. Easy to scale. Easy to budget for. That’s how it should be. ARTESCA is cost-effective and predictable.

Egress charges? Never. Object storage capacity and cost? Under control. ARTESCA efficiently works with Veeam’s recommended default 1MB block size, unlike other solutions that use 4MB or 8MB blocks, inflating incremental backups and overall storage capacity requirements by more than 2X.

Affordable 1, 3 and 5-year subscriptions start at under $4k per year — 24×7 enterprise-grade support included.

Optimized for Veeam Data Platform
