Datto Drive Q&A ft. Andrew Stuart Managing Director, Datto Inc. EMEA

Q1: “What can you tell us about Datto Drive? What exactly can we expect from this product?”
Andrew: “Datto Drive is a new File Sync and Share (FSS) offering from Datto aimed at small to midsized businesses. Datto Drive was built leveraging OwnCloud, a powerful FSS solution for businesses and through Datto’s partnership with OwnCloud, and we’re offering File Sync and Share through the channel at a very disruptive price. Since we’ll be utilising Datto’s own 200 plus petabyte cloud, we’re able to pass savings down so that Datto Drive is offered to SMBs at a significantly lower price compared to Box and Dropbox – £10 per month for one terabyte of storage per organisation with unlimited users. We’re shaking things up in the FSS market and giving SMBs a feature rich FSS product at a highly attractive price.”

Q2: “Datto is known for being 100% channel-focused. Will you be offering Datto Drive direct to consumers? Is so, how will this affect the business model?”
Andrew: “Datto Drive will be offered through Datto’s partners, Managed Service Providers (MSPs). Datto is aiming to market Datto Drive to every SMB in the UK. With the initial launch, Datto is going to create some serious demand for our MSP partners by giving away one million Datto Drive accounts to businesses for free for one year. The businesses who sign up will be routed to local MSPs. The plan is to boost SMB leads to our partners. As partners are our main focus, we see Datto Drive as truly benefitting the channel strategy by helping them continue to grow their businesses by offering a solid FSS solution.”

Q3: “What are the details around the “one million free Datto Drives” promotion?”
Andrew: “Upon release, Datto Drive will be free to the first one million businesses that sign up. Each business can claim a terabyte of free storage, for an unlimited number of users. We wanted to create excitement around the launch of the new product, and thought a price tag of free was a great start.”

Q4: “So after the first year, what happens? How does pricing work for the SMBs using Datto Drive?”
Andrew: “After a year, each business that signs up will be assigned to a local MSP. They will have the option to continue using Datto Drive for £10 per month, per domain for the first terabyte. We will never charge per user, just by domain. This pricing model differs from other File Sync and Share providers who traditionally charge by the user and are more expensive for SMBs wishing to use FSS.”

Q5: “Will there be additional versions of Datto Drive?”
Andrew: “Yes, Datto Drive will also have premium versions which provide businesses with more storage as well as access to Datto’s award-winning 24/7/365 support and other configurable options.”

Q6: “There are a lot of players in the File Sync and Share market. What differentiates Datto Drive?”
Andrew: “It’s true, the File Sync and Share market is a crowded one and File Sync and Share products are looked at currently as a commodity. Datto is taking a different market approach by offering disruptive pricing which is ideal for small businesses. When small businesses look at the current File Sync and Share options, there are services out there that cost £11 per user, per month. This can add up quickly, for example an SMB with 35 employees will be paying £385 per month. Whereas, Datto is offering enterprise-grade File Sync and Share at just £10 per month per domain, which is significantly less expensive. Datto has a unique history of disrupting established markets, and we’re doing it once again, offering a less expensive, innovative, reliable product. Datto has been successful doing this in the business continuity/disaster recovery market and we’ll look to do the same in the File Sync and Share space.”

Q7: “Datto is known for its Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery products. How does a File Sync and Share product fit in?”
Andrew: “It’s really an evolution for Datto in how we protect the data of small businesses. Datto’s mission is Total Data Protection, or protecting data no matter where it lives. The volume of data that businesses have to deal with is exponentially increasing. At Datto we protect data on-prem, in virtualized environments, in SaaS applications and now even at the file level. With Datto Drive, SMBs have a seamless, cost effective way to protect file data by hosting it in the Datto cloud.”

Q8: “How is Datto Drive integrated with Datto’s backup products?”
Andrew: “To start we host the data in Datto’s secure 200 plus petabyte cloud. Those interested in FSS, who also use Datto’s BC solution SIRIS, also have an option to store data on a local Datto SIRIS device. For partners and their customers who want to have that local copy of their data, that’s possible since ownCloud capabilities are on Datto’s SIRIS, which means FSS data is available even when the internet is down. From the Datto Partner Portal, Datto’s MSP partners have a simple overview of data stored on-prem or in the cloud via Datto Drive.”

Q9: “Datto has been expanding its global presence quite a bit lately with new offices in Australia. Can we expect Datto Drive to be offered around the world?”
Andrew: “At the moment UK Datto Drive is being stored in Iceland so it’s compliant with EU data laws. We have data centres in US/Canada, in Australia, and soon opening one in Singapore, so yes, we will be soon be making DD available worldwide. To facilitate this, foreign language versions will be available shortly too.”

Datto Launches Datto Drive to Disrupt File Sync and Share Market for Small Businesses

Gives Away an Exabyte of Free Storage to the First One Million Companies

READING, UK & NORWALK, CONN. – May 2, 2016 – /BackupReview.info/ — Datto today announced the launch of Datto Drive, an inexpensive yet powerful file sync and share (FSS) service, intending to disrupt a highly commoditised market.

“Current file sync and share services are overpriced solutions for small businesses,” said Austin McChord, CEO and founder of Datto. “Anyone who’s paying hundreds or thousands of dollars every month for FSS will immediately see Datto Drive as a welcome alternative. Priced at just £10 (in EU) and $10 (in the US) per terabyte per month for an unlimited number of users in an organisation, Datto Drive is just one of many ways we’re empowering our partners to help small businesses run more efficiently and cost effectively. Better yet, we’re going to give away the first one million instances for Datto Drive for the first year for free.”

FSS is a critical service for small and mid-sized (SMB) companies, but current FSS providers are struggling to deliver the service at a price SMBs are willing to pay. The result is the widespread adoption of “freemium” consumer services that companies attempt to stitch together to avoid the high purchase price. Datto is taking a different approach by leveraging the low cost basis of the company’s 200 petabyte (PB) private cloud, coupled with a global license agreement with ownCloud, the established open-source leader in the FSS industry. The result is a significantly superior value proposition for Datto’s partners and their customers making Datto Drive dramatically more affordable than any other FSS offering in the market.

“Datto Drive blows Dropbox, Box and Anchor out of the water in every way that matters to small businesses – price, features and ease-of- use. That’s great news for Managed Service Providers, too, because we can start relationships with customers based on FSS and grow to include backup, business continuity and more,” said Mark Calzone, president of Ash Creek Enterprises.

Providing one million SMEs with an affordable File Sync and Share service will really shake this market up,” said Paul Tomlinson, Managing Director of Mirus IT Solutions. “In trials with our existing customers, they have welcomed the pricing, flexibility and features that Datto Drive offers. The one million SME target is also a novel and ambitious approach to bringing Datto MSP partners new business. There are 5.4 million SMEs in the UK, and we support Datto’s ambition to ensure that every small business works with an MSP to receive IT services in an increasingly complex IT environment.”

“We believe Datto Drive will be a catalyst to bring together thousands of MSPs with millions of small companies,” said R. Brooks Borcherding, Chief Revenue Officer of Datto. “Datto is constantly looking for opportunities to strengthen the MSP community and enhance the value this essential ecosystem delivers to small and mid-sized businesses. Datto Drive not only delivers a unique opportunity for Datto partners, but by protecting data at the file level, also serves as a key component to Datto’s total data protection platform.”

According to Gartner, “User demand is leading to enterprise file synchronisation and sharing (EFSS) increasingly becoming a priority for organisations building a modern digital workplace. There is a growing awareness of, and pressure to use, EFSS capabilities in digital business initiatives to make employees, partners and even clients more productive and effective in their work. The growth of mobile clients, bring your own device (BYOD) programs and employee use of personal cloud storage services make EFSS an urgent priority for protecting information.” [1]

SMBs can sign up for Datto Drive ( https://dattodrive.com/ ) and receive a year of free service. Datto Drive premium accounts are available for companies looking for increased storage capacity and additional benefits such as 24 x 7 support. If interested in learning more, SMBs and Managed Service Providers can attend Datto’s complimentary webinar on Datto Drive on 5th May: http://www.datto.com/events/introducing-datto-drive

Ed. Note: A similar press release by Recall is found below Iron Mountain’s press release

Acquisition strengthens global footprint, opens up new markets and enhances service delivery

BOSTON, MA – May 2, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced the completion of its acquisition of Recall Holdings Limited as a primarily stock transaction for approximately $2 billion (US). With the acquisition, Iron Mountain acquires the entirety of Recall’s global operations, including all facilities, vehicles, employees and customer assets and excluding operations to be divested in accordance with regulatory agreements in the United States, Canada and Australia; the acquisition of the Recall business in the UK remains subject to regulatory review. Additionally, Iron Mountain appointed Recall directors Neil Chatfield and Wendy Murdock to its Board of Directors, who are included among director nominees standing for election at the company’s upcoming Annual Meeting of Stockholders on June 17, 2016.

Increasing regulations, ongoing security threats, and the need to turn data into business value has elevated both the complexity and priority of managing information and assets. From business records to data to valuable items like art, the stakes have never been higher for organizations of all sizes to ensure their most critical assets are protected while able to be accessed immediately. They require a partner located where they are with the right combination of trust and security to protect what matters most, while also providing expertise and product and services designed to get the most out of those assets. And they need to be sure that as their business matures and changes, their partner can scale with them – supporting their growth across geographies and into new industries.

“Today marks an important milestone for Iron Mountain, and we welcome our new colleagues from Recall as well as their customers and shareholders into our company,” said William L. Meaney, president and CEO of Iron Mountain. “This acquisition significantly boosts our vision to serve as the trusted guardians of our customers’ most important assets, as it expands both our services and footprint for better assisting them with their storage and information management needs. That trust is a cornerstone of our business, whether it’s securing the strategic value of information and assets or continuing to develop innovative products and services that give customers improved access, control and value from those assets. We’re now strongly positioned to deliver on our strategic and financial goals, drawing on the combined capabilities and expertise of both companies to ensure a superior customer experience across the globe.”

Also commenting, President and CEO Doug Pertz said “Today, shareholders receive their acquisition consideration and will, in a tangible sense, realise the very significant value that has been created since Recall was demerged from Brambles in December 2013.  At that time, Recall had a value of A$1.9 billion and today, this transaction values Recall at approximately A$3.7 billion.  We are very proud to have delivered such an outstanding result for shareholders, both through this transaction premium and the dividends that have been paid over the last two and a half years.  I would like to pay tribute to the Recall team for their commitment to the business, customers and shareholders, which has contributed in no small measure to this outcome.”

Scheme Consideration
The Scheme Consideration will be issued or paid (as applicable) to shareholders today.

Shareholders who receive the Standard Consideration will receive A$0.6485 (being the Australian dollar equivalent of US$0.50 paid based on an AUDUSD exchange rate of 0.7710) plus 0.1722 Iron Mountain securities.

As at the close of trading on Friday 29 April 2016, the implied value of the Standard Consideration was A$8.98 per Recall share (based on a trading price of Iron Mountain CDIs (ASX: INM) of A$48.40).

Iron Mountain CDIs have traded on a deferred settlement basis since 22 April 2016 and will commence trading on a normal settlement basis tomorrow, Tuesday 3 May 2016. New Iron Mountain Shares issued under the Scheme will also commence trading on the NYSE on Tuesday 3 May 2016.

Recall advises that 11,426 Recall shareholders elected the Cash Alternative of A$8.50 per Recall share, representing a total of 90.7 million Recall shares. As the consideration payable in respect of those cash elections would exceed the total cash pool of A$225 million the Scale Back Mechanism will apply.

As set out in the Scheme Booklet, the Scale Back Mechanism provided for preferential access to the A$225 million cash pool for certain existing shareholders. Recall now confirms that all shareholders, including beneficial owners holding through nominees, who made a valid Cash Election, will be given preferential access in the scale back for the first 5,000 shares held or owned continuously from 11 June 2015 through to the Record Date (Wednesday, 27 April 2016). As a result, 90% of shareholders and beneficial owners that made a cash election will receive the cash alternative in full.

After payment for the preferential access shares, the remaining cash pool proceeds will then be apportioned on a pro-rata basis across the remaining shares which are the subject of Cash Elections. The consideration for these shares will be 20.8% Cash Alternative and 79.2% Standard Consideration.

Recall shareholders will separately receive individual statements setting out the details of the consideration received, including the impact of the scale back (if applicable).

Recall also notes the following matters pursuant to the ASX Listing Rules:

Delisting from ASX
Recall intends to apply to the ASX shortly for the termination of the official quotation of Recall shares on the ASX and to have Recall removed from the official list of the ASX.

Change in Office Holders
With effect on and from today and in accordance with the provisions of the scheme, all of the current directors (including the Chairman and CEO) of Recall have resigned.

Japanese Distributor to Offer Egenera’s Xterity Disaster Recovery and Backup Services to Customers Throughout Japan

BOXBOROUGH, MA – May 2, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services and cloud management software to the channel, today announced it has signed a strategic partnership with Networld Corporation, a leading Japanese distributor of technology products with annual revenues of 66.8 billion Yen. Under the terms of the agreement, Networld will deliver Egenera’s Xterity disaster recovery as-a-service (DRaaS) and backup-as-a-service (BaaS) to customers as part of its NETWORLD CLOUD MART offering.

Networld is a distributor of technology products in Japan and is one of the country’s largest VMware resellers. Egenera announced the opening of its Xterity Cloud in Tokyo in November and now operates clouds worldwide in San Jose, Ashburn, VA, Boston, Dublin, London and Tokyo, with plans for additional locations as partner demand continues to grow.

“In Japan, Egenera’s solutions have been widely used in the enterprise and in financial services for mission critical applications since 2001. Egenera has had an established reputation for high quality disaster recovery and backup, and has been delivering Xterity, its wholesale managed cloud service, in Japan since 2015,” said Shoichi Morita, president and representative director of Networld Corporation. “Until now, we haven’t had viable solutions for DR and backup of on-premise VMware-based servers, but with this partnership, Networld can add mission critical disaster recovery and backup services to our catalog.”

Xterity’s business continuity services deliver on-premise server-to-cloud or cloud-to-cloud backup and disaster recovery. Egenera’s Xterity Cloud Services deliver a full range of dedicated, managed, private and public cloud services, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Backup as a Service (BaaS), and CloudMigrate(SM) exclusively through the channel. With Xterity, resellers can quickly enter the cloud services market with no up-front capital or ongoing maintenance costs. Unlike reselling cloud services from large, commodity cloud vendors, Xterity delivers the margins resellers need to develop a profitable cloud services business.

“Our strategic partnership with Networld is a key milestone in the adoption of Xterity worldwide,” said Pete Manca, president and CEO of Egenera. “We’re excited about working with Networld to deliver business continuity services to its large customer base.”

About Egenera
Egenera is a leading provider of wholesale cloud services to the channel and data center infrastructure management software. Xterity, the company’s white label cloud service, offers revenue generating Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to managed service providers (MSPs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) seeking to deliver cloud services with no upfront costs and with margins up to 50 percent or more.

May 01, 2016

The growth of the cloud backup industry, over the last one decade, has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many start ups and stabilization of others. Interestingly, the companies that have gained a strong foothold in the industry are not all similar. There is a subtle distinction in the nature and types of services they offer. Some of these companies are pure enablers, while others combine enablement functions with direct-to-market services. Yet others, may license the software from enablers with or without re-branding options and service the online backup service needs of their clients.

Five distinct categories can be identified as under (click on links for details):
1/ Pure Enabler
2/ Enabler & Service Provider – Channel or Direct
3/ Service Provider – Channel Only
4/ Service Provider – Channel and Direct
5/ Service Provider – Direct Only (For complete list of companies, see our top monthly ranking list)

Based on a number of factors, such as technology, features, easy of use, dedication to MSPs, channel, revenue structure, reputation, support, price entry point, value, and corporate culture of the companies, we have summarized our rankings.

The companies are categorized in their respective columns. If we have made an error in the category or companies have changed their business plan and as a result need to be categorized in a different column, please let us know.

They need solutions for their users that just work and provide an easy frictionless experience. This is what the CloudEdit provides. Open a file from the web File Manager, edit it on the associated Application from your desktop and save it back to wherever it was loaded from. It’s painless for the user and it is painless for IT.”

All files edited using CloudEdit can be audited using SME’s built in Governance and Auditing features providing Companies a complete history of user interactions.

CloudEdit is a feature of the Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Share and Sync solution, that is available today for Enterprises, Service Providers, and Educational establishments.

Data-Deposit-Box-DataDepositBox-Online-Backup-Cloud-Data-Remote-Backup

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – April 29, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today Telstra announced Cloud Gateway – a solution for businesses who need to simply and securely connect to multiple cloud environments. Telstra is also extending its Cloud Services range with the addition of the world leading cloud platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Cloud Gateway provides private and secure connectivity directly into multiple public cloud platforms. The innovative one-to-many “gateway” model connects an IP network service to the cloud with data carriage, cross connect in the hosting data centre, configuration and support. This means organisations can simply and securely access their chosen cloud platform from around the world, with increased application performance via Telstra’s IP network.

Initially Cloud Gateway will offer customers around the world connectivity to AWS and IBM SoftLayer, while Australian customers can also connect to Microsoft Azure, Office365 and VMware vCloud Air – with more infrastructure and SaaS platforms to join over time.

Philip Jones, Executive Director, Global Products and Solutions at Telstra, said Cloud Gateway, combined with Telstra’s wide range of best of breed cloud environments, aims to help customers take full advantage of the ways cloud-based workloads can improve agility, reduce costs and support innovation when they reside in fit-for-purpose cloud architectures.

“Most organisations don’t realise the full value of cloud out of a single service. Instead, our customers are investing in sophisticated hybrid cloud environments, which come with their own range of fragmented networking challenges. These include managing multiple vendors, portals and contracts, while trying to maintain a high level of security, performance and operational efficiency. We believe that just because these solutions are sophisticated, doesn’t mean that they should also be complex. Cloud Gateway is Telstra’s simple way to connect multiple clouds, and create hybrid environments.

“Telstra is very well positioned to help customers with hybrid and multi-cloud strategies, as we bring the cloud and the network together. The network is the fundamental piece of the puzzle that helps provide a secure and reliable application experience. Having a single touchpoint also helps reduce IT complexity, enabling our customers to maximise the benefits of investing in cloud,” he said.

AWS Australia and New Zealand Head of Channels and Alliances, Stefan Jansen, said; “We are very excited to expand our relationship with Telstra in delivering an integrated AWS platform experience to customers of all sizes. By combining the experience of Telstra and AWS, customers will benefit from our focus on providing a wide range of AWS cloud-based features and services to support unprecedented agility and innovation in Australia and internationally.”

“With more global cloud options available than ever before, our customers want choice, control and confidence. With the introduction of Cloud Gateway, Telstra can offer our customers the many commercial benefits of simplifying, connecting and managing their multi-cloud environments,” Jones concluded.

Cloud Gateway will be available from June.

About Telstra
Telstra is the leading telecommunications and information services company in Australia. We provide end-to-end solutions including managed network services, global connectivity, cloud, voice, colocation, conferencing and satellite solutions. We have licenses in Asia, Europe and the US and offer access to over 2,000 PoPs in 230 countries and territories across the globe.

The Legacy Data Migration Assurance Program supports migration of long term retention data from backup tapes to more accessible cloud storage

HOLMDEL, NJ – April 28, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Information management company Index Engines launched a new services and software program today that streamlines the migration of data of value from backup tape to cloud or disk-based storage, supporting data center cost reduction and risk management.

The Legacy Data Migration Assurance Program leverages Index Engines’ in-place tape indexing and selective restoration technology and scans, audits and locates valuable business files and email on backup tapes and migrates the data to a new online platform for long-term retention where it can be managed according to data governance retention policies.

This eliminates the use of legacy backup tapes for data archiving and enables online management of long-term retention data to control risk and provide more cost-effective eDiscovery support.

“Organizations have used backup tapes as an archive for decades, however in today’s legal and regulatory climate storing sensitive business records on offline, inaccessible media is proving costly and complex,” Index Engines vice president Jim McGann said. “Our new service simplifies the migration of this sensitive content to the cloud or online disk storage and reduces the risks and costs surrounding unmanaged offline legacy data.”

With the new assurance program, customers to eliminate the redundancy of tape, and find and extract the 1- 10 percent that has LTR value. Index Engines remotely manages the project to assure success and mitigate the end user time commitment.

Engineers manage the installation, training, processing and ongoing support of the migration project in order to guarantee success. The organization simply needs to install a server and tape library within their secure data center, and through remote management Index Engines will manage the data migration.

The Legacy Data Migration Assurance Program is reasonably priced per tape and includes:

  • Installation and Configuration: Implementation of the Index Engines software and connection to tape libraries and network/cloud storage in the client’s data center.
  • Product Training: Training on the user interface as well as the administrative features of the product.
  • Migration Policy Development & Implementation: Development of data policy to determine what content will be migrated from tape to disk.
  • Project Overview & Timing: Development of a project plan that will determine the resources required for the project as well as a schedule and milestones.
  • Daily Audit & Onsite Coordination: Daily remote monitoring of the Index Engines system to review logs and audit the process.
  • Troubleshooting & Resolution: Monitor and resolve any issues in a timely manner.
  • Monthly Executive Review: Monthly meetings to review the progress and milestones as compared to the defined project plan.

Software-Defined Storage Startup Recognized a Year After Emerging From Stealth

SANTA CLARA, CA – Apr 28, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ – Hedvig, the company modernizing storage and accelerating enterprise adoption of private and hybrid clouds, today announced that it has been named one of this year’s “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies” by Gartner Inc. This recognition, coming just a year after Hedvig emerged from stealth, we believe highlights the growing importance of the software-defined infrastructure market for IT administrators and large organizations.

Each year, Gartner identifies “Cool Vendors” in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports evaluating pioneering vendors and their products and services. According to the “Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2016″ report, “many organizations are evaluating technologies that will drive efficiency, such as higher-performing and more automated storage, cloud-based solutions, and data management and backup and recovery products that allow for proactive problem avoidance and increased resource utilization and optimization.”

“We launched last year with a mission to challenge traditional storage approaches, which we believe fall flat when faced with the velocity of change in today’s businesses. Over the past year we’ve made significant progress and have provided our customers with a solution that can keep pace and deliver the most complete, most flexible software-defined storage platform on the market,” said Avinash Lakshman, founder and CEO of Hedvig. “We’re honored to be selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor and will continue to provide enterprises with the type of modern storage solutions that today’s dynamic market demands.”

The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform is a complete, unified platform for highly elastic, flexible and scalable next-generation infrastructure. Hedvig’s software-only approach provides the flexibility for bimodal IT — supporting both mode 1 and mode 2 workloads with protocols like iSCSI and NFS along with object storage APIs like S3 and Swift. Hedvig is the only software-defined solution that delivers the power of distributed systems with the simplicity of cloud and a complete set of enterprise capabilities for any application, hypervisor, container, or cloud environment.

Hedvig was one of five vendors named in the report. The full Cool Vendors in “Storage Technologies, 2016″ report from Gartner can be found here: http://goo.gl/2iC1QT

Companies Unite on May 5 to Educate Consumers on the Importance of Password Safety and the Value of Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

SUNNYVALE, CA – Apr 28, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — In support of the annual World Password Day on May 5, Zetta, a leading provider of high-performance cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions, has joined Intel Security, Microsoft, Dell and others in support of promoting better password habits and the value of two factor authentication (2FA). The effort is designed to help educate consumers worldwide on the importance of password safety and to encourage everyone to change or strengthen their passwords using tips found at passwordday.org.

Recent research [1] states that as many as three in four consumers use duplicate passwords, many of which (47%) have not been changed in five years or more. As a result, as many as 90% of online accounts are vulnerable to hacking [2]. Consumers do want greater online security. In fact, 68% report that they want companies to provide an extra layer of internet security, such as 2FA. 2FA provides an additional layer of protection that can significantly decrease the risk of a hacker accessing vital information, including online backup files. When using 2FA, 86% of people feel their accounts are more secure.

For its direct-to-cloud backup and recovery customers, Zetta delivers a seamless approach to 2FA, using standards-compliant, time-based authentication. Compatible with Google Authenticator and other standards-compliant 2FA devices, Zetta 2FA is both unobtrusive and truly secure. Users only need to validate their 2FA code every 30 days from a new device, while the code provided changes every minute for truly secure validation.

“When protecting your vital business data using a cloud-based backup and recovery solution it’s imperative that you utilize the most secure and compliant technology available,” said Mike Grossman, CEO, Zetta. “Using state-of-the-industry security protocols, including 2FA, SSL encryption in flight and AES encryption at rest, along with 100% recovery reliability, Zetta cloud backup and disaster recovery provides the compliant data protection businesses need to rest easy. We are a proud supporter of World Password Day, evangelizing best password practices to prevent the threat of data breaches.”

World Password Day 2016, Thursday, May 5, is a global celebration to promote better password habits. To learn more, visit passwordday.org

Master Distributor, Green Light Technology, to Expand Availability of Dataguise DgSecure throughout Latin America

FREMONT, Calif. — April 28, 2016– /BackupReview.info/ — Dataguise, a technology leader in secure business execution, today announced a partnership with master IT distributor Green Light Technology (GLT), extending availability of Dataguise DgSecure® to enterprises throughout Latin America. The Dataguise partnership with GLT brings a unique depth of technical expertise to organizations with challenges in information security and compliance. Availability of Dataguise DgSecure complements GLT’s solution portfolio to safely unlock the value of big data, databases, and unstructured information for business success.

According to a report by the Bureau of National Affairs on privacy laws in Latin America, “Thirteen jurisdictions in Latin America now have comprehensive privacy laws including: Argentina, Aruba, Bahamas, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Trinidad, Tobago, and Uruguay. The two laws that are most closely aligned with the European laws (and thus deemed to the European Commission to provide adequate protection) are Argentina and Uruguay. Other countries such as Brazil, Ecuador, and territories such as the Cayman Islands have draft bills that have either been or are expected to be introduced to their legislatures. In addition, Chile, which has had a high-level data protection law since 1999, may amend its existing law in 2015 to include registration, impose cross-border restrictions and establish a data protection regulator.”

Headquartered in Maitland, Florida, GLT provides custom development, professional services, and the recommendation, implementation and customization of best-of-breed software products to organizations throughout Latin America. The solution provider builds solutions that create a bridge between legacy and advanced technologies to meet the needs of companies in a range of industries. GLT works with a number of organizations to leverage business analytics powered by Hadoop and other big data platforms. Dataguise now supports these efforts by GLT with cradle to grave protection of the data to ensure that sensitive information is detected upon creation, protected from unauthorized access, and monitored in real-time to prevent threats from impacting business operations.

The flagship offering by Dataguise is DgSecure, a highly automated data-centric security platform that precisely monitors access and activities associated with sensitive data such as email addresses, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or other confidential or personally identifiable information (PII). The solution works seamlessly with all leading big data and database platform vendors. DgSecure is also ideal for protecting vast pools of difficult to aggregate unstructured data for end-to-end protection of sensitive data.

According to a data breach industry forecast by Experian, “The risk of experiencing a data breach is higher than ever with almost half of organizations suffering at least one security incident in the last 12 months. To address this, 48 percent of organizations increased investments in security technologies in the same timeframe, and 73 percent acknowledged the likelihood of a breach by developing a data breach response plan. Showcased by shifts in leadership at companies that suffered a public data breach in the last year, it is clear that security can no longer be viewed as just an IT issue. Scrutiny of corporate leadership’s management of security may continue to increase in the form of legal and regulatory action after a major incident.”

“Data security is receiving high profile attention from Global 2000 enterprises, including many across Latin America,” said Jaime Penagos, VP of Business Development at Green Light Technology (GLT). “Many of our customers are concerned about the exposure of sensitive information and looking for solutions to address this threat. While perimeter security solutions are critical, DgSecure by Dataguise delivers a unique data-centric advantage that allows enterprises to safely unlock the full potential of their information assets.”

“Data driven organizations around the world remain at high risk from internal and external threats to their most precious informational assets,” said JT Sison, VP, Marketing and Business Development, Dataguise. “Our emphasis on sensitive data, from detection to protection and monitoring, makes DgSecure an important security layer that allows our customers to operate safely under compliance mandates. This alliance with GLT extends access to DgSecure, thereby ensuring secure business execution for organizations throughout Latin America.”

Automate Rapid Content Migration from Legacy File Servers to Syncplicity – Scales to All Users and Files within the Enterprise

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – April 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Syncplicity, the leader of the hybrid enterprise file sync and share market, announced the availability of Syncplicity Data Hub, a powerful tool for enterprises modernizing their IT infrastructure to reduce costs and empower the mobile workforce. Syncplicity Data Hub connects to over 30 data sources, including legacy file shares, SharePoint and all major enterprise content management (ECM) systems, while automating the process of file migration from these systems to the Syncplicity platform.

Syncplicity Data Hub is easily deployed and configured to migrate, copy and synchronize files rapidly and at enterprise scale from home directories, group shares and dozens of content repositories to Syncplicity StorageVaults located in public cloud, private cloud or on-premises storage. Integrity of folder structures, metadata, permissions and document versions is preserved so employees have anywhere, anytime desktop and mobile access to all their documents without changing how they work. IT departments can set granular filters on which files are included in the migration, allowing the exclusion of unwanted content, from files employees are storing in violation of IT policy to outdated files that have remained unused for a long period.

“CIOs are under pressure to quickly enable user adoption of digital tools and replace legacy storage with the latest, much cheaper, consolidated storage options to modernize IT and realize significant cost savings,” said Syncplicity CEO Jonathan Huberman. “Syncplicity Data Hub scales to manage any migration, even petabytes of data. By automating this process, we make it easy for companies and IT departments to get started right away on their all-important digital transformation by rapidly moving users and their content to Syncplicity’s secure, policy-driven hybrid cloud file sync and share solution. Syncplicity enables further cost savings by replacing legacy backup systems and maintains instant file synchronization across all devices.”

In addition to enabling content migration, the Syncplicity Data Hub powers content connections between Syncplicity and corporate ECM systems, eDiscovery platforms, secure search engines and content generating applications.

Syncplicity will be on hand at EMC World 2016 (Booth #159) next week to explain the powerful features of the Syncplicity Data Hub, show demos and discuss successful customer implementations.

ABOUT SYNCPLICITY

Version 4.0 includes new features for integrated subscription billing, services pricing, infrastructure management and help desk ticketing, along with an upgraded user interface

NEW YORK, NY – April 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Ubersmith announces version 4.0 of its integrated billing, infrastructure management and help desk software suite for data centers and cloud-related service providers that comes with a completely redesigned user interface, as well as additional capabilities for more sophisticated pricing of services, plus global event notifications.

Ubersmith 4.0 is subscription billing, infrastructure management and help desk ticketing software that is designed for companies offering cloud services, hosting, colocation, software-as-a-service and managed services. It provides both a view for administrative users – who can access full client data such as billing status, discounts applied, device information, services being purchased, which is fully customizable – along with a separate portal view accessed by their clients for only their specific account information.

Ubersmith is used globally by SMBs and larger enterprises for open, scalable and integrated management of billing, infrastructure, sales and operations.

The modular design of the business management software suite enables customers to use the full complement of features, or select only the modules they need, or choose specific modules to be used in combination with systems already in place. Pricing is based on the number of users, clients and devices – giving customers the ability to pay only for what they need.

New Features
Ubersmith 4.0 has a new user interface that is clean and simple for navigation which has been tuned to users’ needs.

Additional new features include:

  • Global event notifications that enable administrative users to subscribe to specific account alerts that are important to them and provide automatic updates, including status on quotes, support tickets, devices, work orders and more;
  • Responsive graphs that are refreshed on an ongoing basis to reflect the most current data with “drill-down” capability for analysis;
  • Pricing history audit trail with information on anything that may have affected a change, such as rate plans, contract terms, discounts, quantities;
  • Scheduling of pricing for future points in time.

A full list of the product capabilities can be found at www.ubersmith.com/product

“With version 4.0, we are furthering our position in the market as the premier business management software for data centers, the cloud and beyond,” said Kurt Daniel, president, Ubersmith. “This release represents a key milestone for our team in advancing our product suite and another way in which we can better serve leading organizations.”

Shawn Mills, president of Green House Data, said, “The sophisticated pricing and forecasting capabilities help us better serve our customers. Because we offer a high degree of customization, Ubersmith’s holistic views and specific alerts are invaluable to our business.”

“What the hosting and cloud industry needs is a billing and management platform that appeals to the largest cloud providers, as well as the smaller niche ones,” said Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research. “Ubersmith can do that and its appeal comes from the extensibility of the software, modular pricing that is flexible, plus a reputation for outstanding customer service. As the need to maximize operational efficiency is increasingly top of mind for service providers, it is no coincidence Ubersmith continues to gain adoption.”

Pricing and Availability
Ubersmith’s “pay-as-you-grow” model starts with a monthly subscription license of $500 and is based on the volume of users, clients and devices. Standard support is included, plus a premium enterprise priority support is available, along with consulting, training and development services. Ubersmith offers special pricing to qualified startups and small companies starting at $250 per month.

About the Product
Ubersmith’s software suite includes subscription billing, infrastructure management, help desk ticketing, sales quoting and order management capabilities. It is used by companies offering cloud services, Software as a Service (SaaS), hosting, colocation, managed services and related products, as well as small- to medium-size businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises. The Ubersmith software helps organizations to better serve their customers, shorten time-to-market, increase revenue and lower costs.

The software suite is platform-independent and integrates with merchant providers, electronic payment processing providers, SureTax, QuickBooks, domain registrars and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) providers.

WOBURN, MA – April 28, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky Lab North America has published its report on botnet DDoS attacks for Q1 2016 based on statistics gathered from Kaspersky DDoS Intelligence*. The reporting period saw a shift away from low-cost attacks that are easy to implement to more complex and focused ones. There was also a nearly fourfold increase in the number of DDoS attacks on Kaspersky Lab resources.

Resources in 74 countries were targeted by DDoS attacks in Q1. As in the previous quarter, the vast majority of those resources were located in just 10 countries, and once again China, South Korea and the U.S. were the most affected. Ukraine (fourth place), Germany (ninth) and France (tenth) were all newcomers to the Top 10 this quarter These changes correlated with the countries hosting the most Command and Control (C&C) servers for attack purposes – France appeared among the leaders in that rating too.

Over 70% of attacks in the first quarter lasted no longer than four hours. At the same time, there was a dramatic reduction in the maximum attack duration: the longest DDoS attack lasted just eight days (the longest registered attack in Q4 2015 lasted almost two weeks). During the reporting period the maximum number of attacks against a single target increased: 33 attacks versus 24 in the previous quarter.

Kaspersky Lab experts also noted a fall in the number of attacks targeting communication channels, accompanied by an increase in the number of application-layer attacks. This suggests amplification attacks, which regained popularity last year, have begun to lose their appeal.

Data on DDoS attacks targeting Kaspersky Lab customers, as well as the company’s own websites, confirms the trend towards reduced duration and increased frequency combined with greater complexity. During the first three months of the year Kaspersky Lab resources countered almost as many attacks as the whole of 2015. The majority of those attacks were also short-lived application-layer attacks.

Today, almost all telecom companies have learned to cope with the most widespread – and , as a rule, technologically ‘simple’ – types of DDoS attacks,” said Evgeny Vigovsky, Head of Kaspersky DDoS Protection, Kaspersky Lab. “This has forced cybercriminals to turn to more complex and expensive – but more effective – methods in order to improve the efficiency of their work. Attacks at the application level are a good example. Only a highly professional anti-DDoS solution with an intelligent junk-filtering algorithm is capable of detecting genuine user requests from the general flow. That’s why companies, especially those whose business depends on the availability of online services, can no longer rely solely on the capabilities of an Internet provider.””

Kaspersky DDoS Protection combines Kaspersky Lab’s extensive expertise in combating cyber threats and the company’s unique in-house developments. The solution protects against all types of DDoS attacks regardless of their complexity, strength, or duration. You can learn more about the solution here.

*The DDoS Intelligence system (part of Kaspersky DDoS Protection) is designed to intercept and analyze commands sent to bots from command and control (C&C) servers, and does not have to wait until user devices are infected or cybercriminal commands are executed in order to gather data. It is important to note that DDoS Intelligence statistics are limited to those botnets that were detected and analyzed by Kaspersky Lab.

New Offering Allows for Easy, Fast Data Retrieval and Near-Infinite Scalability to Address Challenges of Increasing Data

BOSTON, MA – April 27, 2016 – /BackupReview.info/ – Iron Mountain Incorporated® (NYSE:IRM), the storage and information management company, today announced its new Iron Mountain Cloud Archive offering, a cost-effective, scalable repository for organizations needing to protect and preserve data retained short or long term for compliance, legal or value-creation purposes. Designed to scale as the volume of data grows, the solution is ideal for organizations needing offsite, pay-as-you-use archival storage with near-infinite scalability, where customer data remains secure, intact and easily accessible over the long term at Iron Mountain’s Underground Facility in Boyers, Pennsylvania.

For many organizations, skyrocketing data volumes make long-term digital asset management a major challenge they must address to preserve, protect and manage valuable intellectual property, operational knowledge, process documentation and other digital assets. Ever-expanding regulations and increasing data retention requirements further exacerbate this challenge. And storage area networks and network-attached storage can’t scale cost-effectively.

“As organizations continue their investigation and adoption of cloud-services as part of modernizing their IT strategy, data protection is often cited as one scenario to be cloud-enabled,” says Jason Buffington, Principal Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. “For many, the primary objection to cloud-services is security-related, so it is exciting to see Iron Mountain, whose brand to many is synonymous with ‘trust’ and ‘data custodianship,’ offering this service. Particularly for customers who already appreciate a trusted partnership with Iron Mountain’s tape services, but also for those who are hesitant but interested in adding a secure cloud to their data preservation plan, the Iron Mountain service may be well worth considering.”

Unlike on-premise disk and tape infrastructures, Iron Mountain Cloud Archive doesn’t require customer-owned storage equipment or archiving platforms, and it eliminates resources to manage tape- and disk-refresh life cycles, while avoiding the cost and hassle of a technology migration from one generation of tape or disk to another. Based on EMC® Elastic Cloud StorageTM (ECS) a global multi-purpose platform technology from EMC, this offering also delivers cost-efficient, rapid and anytime-anywhere access with meaningful enterprise-class service-level agreements (SLAs).

“Building on our legacy as a trusted and proven service provider, the introduction of the Iron Mountain Cloud Archive solution rounds out the Iron Mountain Cloud portfolio of services with best-in-class technology designed to fit and scale with any IT infrastructure,” said Eileen Sweeney, Senior Vice President, Data Management, Iron Mountain. “We’re now fully equipped to offer holistic, end-to-end information management, ensuring past, present and future data protection, disaster recovery and data preservation with unmatched physical and logical security at an affordable price.”

Data movement to and from Iron Mountain Cloud Archive is easy with an open and flexible platform-built using ECS technology that works with S3 API, OpenStack SWIFT, CAS, Atmos and cloud gateways like EMC® CloudBoostTM, CloudArray® and Isilon® Cloud Pools technologies, or Nasuni, Panzura, Seven10 and CTERA.

Iron Mountain will exhibit at the 2016 EMC World Conference (Booth #238) at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information on the new Iron Mountain Cloud Archive offering, please visit www.ironmountain.com/cloudarchive

  • Expanding One Network solution set for the campus with new cloud-managed wired and wireless offering powered by Dell and Aerohive
  • Pushing the Open Networking envelope — open source community with SONiC, new ecosystem partners and use cases
  • Delivering new in-rack systems for the data center designed to accelerate server and storage migration to 10G connectivity

ROUND ROCK, TX – April 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Dell Networking today introduced new capabilities for campus and data center environments, including the launch of new cloud-managed wired and wireless solutions powered by Dell and Aerohive, Operating System 10 milestones and in-rack platforms for the data center.

“Major trends such as cloud and software-defined create a dynamically changing IT landscape, both on campus and in the data center,” said Tom Burns, vice president and general manager, Dell Networking and Enterprise Infrastructure. “These new Dell Networking solutions help our customers navigate these changes with future-ready architectures, open technology and hyper-scale inspired efficiency.”

Expanding Dell One Network vision – new cloud-managed wired/wireless campus solution powered by Dell and Aerohive
Building on its One Network campus vision, Dell Networking has collaborated with Aerohive to deliver a new cloud-managed solution that integrates and manages wired and wireless infrastructure. The co-branded solution incorporates Dell N-Series switches and Aerohive access points into Aerohive’s HiveManager NG – a next-generation cloud-based management solution. This solution greatly simplifies end-user access, setting a new standard for wired and wireless network convergence by bringing enterprise-class management to the public or private cloud.

With a customizable user-focused interface, HiveManager NG allows for high-level or in-depth views of all facets of Dell and Aerohive networking devices including applications, users, policy management and switch port status. Further simplifying wired and wireless converged network management, Dell has expanded its industry-leading ProSupport to provide users with a single point of contact for unified network support. Through SupportAssist technology, ProSupport offers proactive and predictive automated support for issue prevention and resolution.

Movement Mortgage is one of the nation’s fastest-growing, privately-held mortgage companies, employing more than 2,000 people, at more than 300 branches across the United States. “To have a unified wireless platform across all operations and branch offices, and have it just work has undeniably advanced the efficiency and productivity for our employees, as well as streamlined operations for our IT staff,” said Will Simons, IT Director, Movement Mortgage.

These milestones demonstrate Dell and Aerohive’s shared vision of cloud-managed IT, providing streamlined operations, configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting for all elements of customers’ networks. “We believe cloud management has the opportunity to transform the way our customers serve their customers,” said David Flynn, CEO, Aerohive Networks. “We are proud to extend enterprise-class cloud management that Aerohive customers use to manage our access points to Dell’s switches. HiveManager NG sets the standard for building and managing networks.”

Dell pushing the envelope in Open Networking – new community and capabilities
As a leader in Open Networking, Dell is driving ahead with its Operating System 10 (OS10) development with community building and integration projects including Open Compute Project’s (OCP) Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC) and partners Ansible, F5 and Silverpeak. These new OS10 collaborations and use cases demonstrate the flexibility and adaptability of Open Networking software:

  • Dell OS10 and OCP SONiC– Dell, in conjunction with Microsoft Azure and other industry leaders, made foundational contributions to the newly-announced SONiC effort. The goal is to open source all the components needed to build fully-functional networking software. SONiC is a collection of software packages/modules that can be installed on Linux on a network hardware switch which makes it a complete, functional router.  Dell has successfully integrated its OS10 base software to serve as a foundational element for SONiC.
  • Ansible – From app deployment to multi-tiered orchestration, Ansible Tower by Red Hat powers enterprise automation by adding control, security and delegation capabilities.
    • “Since OS10 runs in a native Linux environment, integrating it with Ansible Tower is quite straightforward. Customers can now easily and rapidly deploy Dell switches into their automated IT environment, helping to reduce operational costs while also enabling server-like agility in configuration management.” – Tim Cramer, Senior Director of Ansible Engineering, Red Hat
  • F5 – F5 with OS10 delivers load balancing over active-active clusters across network services for scale out deployments.
    • “Dell OS10 programmability enables unique partner solutions for datacenter network fabric.  Optimizing OS10 for F5’s Application Delivery Controller infrastructure not only offers tighter integration between network and compute, but also reduces power and cooling related operating costs.” – Jeff Bellamy, Senior Director Business Development, F5 Networks
  • Silver Peak – Silver Peak provides leading, optimized SD-WAN interconnects between the data center and branch offices across public and private clouds.
    • “OS10 represents the future of open networking in the data center. Direct integration of Silver Peak’s Edge Connect SD-WAN with OS10 illustrates the value of open software and the ease with which customers can combine best-of-breed solutions into their network infrastructure.” – Rolf Muralt, vice president, Product Management

New in-rack platforms for the data center
Dell announced new in-rack platforms optimized to accelerate 10G deployments to harness the latest silicon-based features. Industry analysts forecast a significant migration to 10G in the next four years as enterprise customers begin to retire 1G speeds in the data center.

Built for different needs, the S4048T-ON and S6010-ON share common attributes including:

  • Designed to meet enterprise, mid-size and high-performance computing requirements;
  • ONIE-compliant to provide cloud and Web 2.0 customers an Open Networking environment with fully-tested and validated third-party operating systems;
  • Advanced features for VXLAN, larger tables and expanded buffering compared to other Dell models; and
  • Both switches will begin shipping in mid-May.

S4048T

  • The Dell Networking S4048T is purpose-built 10GBase-T switch for copper-based server and storage connectivity to offer customers investment protection.
  • The switch supports numerous, high-capacity port configurations in a compact, 1RU form factor.

S6010

  • The Dell Networking S6010-ON is designed for demanding data center environments to provide optimum density and price point.
  • The Dell S6010-ON delivers line-rate performance with a non-blocking switching fabric, improved packet buffering and reduced oversubscription.

Supporting Quotes
“Aerohive and Dell have made strides to deliver a truly unified solution. This integration in HiveManager NG not only gives customers the ability to monitor, but also to configure and push zero-touch deployments from the cloud. This is the most unified wired and wireless cloud management integration that I have seen.” - Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst, ZK Research

“10 GE, specifically 10G Base-T, is going to ramp significantly in the enterprise as customers upgrade servers to 10 GE but also look for investment protection for their existing 1 GE infrastructure.  Dell’Oro Group projects 10G Base-T shipment will nearly quadruple by 2017 driving much of the 10 GE growth over the next two years.” – Alan Weckel, Ethernet Switch Analyst, Dell’Oro Group

Storage Made Easy’s Enterprise File Share and Sync Fabric Solution is chosen by Top Tier US Telco for use with OpenStack Swift

LONDON, UK – 27th April 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — From the OpenStack Summit in Austin, Storage Made Easy, today announced that it had won a 100,000 user account with a top tier United States telecommunications provider for use with OpenStack Swift Object Storage.

Storage Made Easy was chosen after a long Proof of Concept process involving several large high profile vendors. The customer use case involves replacing existing file storage and user home directories with a web based solution that offered a frictionless user experience.

Storage Made Easy was the chosen vendor as it had a native connector to the Telco’s OpenStack vendor of choice; offered robust user collaboration functionality; integrated with the Telco’s chosen Mobile Device Management solution; did not tamper with the names of files that were uploaded using the solution thereby preventing vendor lock-in; offered strong content tagging and content search capabilities; and was able to offer professional services to tailor its solution to fit the enterprise use case rather than having to fit the use case around a product.

Jim Liddle Storage Made Easy CEO said, “We are seeing a huge upturn in our solution being used with Object Storage, both OpenStack and S3 compatible clouds. Many enterprises wish to embrace Object Storage because of the compelling ROI it offers against existing solutions, but it needs to be able to be used with not only backup and archive but also other key strategic enterprise use cases. This is ultimately what Storage Made Easy provides. It is a facilitator for enabling strategic use of not only OpenStack but also other object storage solutions.”

About Storage Made Easy (SME)
The Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Share and Sync Fabric enables IT to regain control of “cloud sprawl”, unifying private and public file sharing into a single, converged storage infrastructure that can easily be managed and be used to set governance and audit controls.

The SME solution offers a “blanket” that enterprises can privately apply to wrap around all their data: on premises, within a public cloud, or on a third party software vendors’ cloud (SharePoint or SalesForce for example). Customers use SME for security, encryption, audit, and control as well as to provide a data unification platform.

Storage Made Easy is the trading name of Vehera LTD who have sales offices in the UK, USA and Switzerland.
