Metallic Backup Gateway


The backup gateway functions as a gateway between a data source and the Metallic cloud backup service. The backup gateway resides adjacent to the data source to provide low latency and high performance.

The following cases require a backup gateway:

  • You want to protect on-premises applications

  • In addition to a cloud copy of the backup data, you need a local copy

  • The outbound network security is restricted or blocked from a data source

  • You want to protect cloud resources in Amazon Web Services (AWS)

  • You want to protect cloud resources in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)
