Zetta.net Achieves 40X Faster Cloud Backup than MozyPro by EMC

SUNNYVALE, Calif.– May 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – Zetta.net today announced that Kleinfelder, a global engineering consulting firm, selected Zetta.net’s cloud backup and disaster recovery solution to eliminate failed and slow backups, boost data transfer speed and improve IT efficiency. The migration of 62TB from MozyPro to Zetta.net resulted in a smooth and fast transition.

“Backups were slow and running into our work hours with MozyPro. In addition, 10 percent of our backups would fail in all of our 60 offices,” said Dave Johnson, ITS Systems Engineer at Kleinfelder. “After testing various solutions, we selected Zetta.net for its cloud backup speed, reliability of the solution and the high quality service from their support team.”

Fast and Seamless Migration from MozyPro to Zetta.net
Kleinfelder needed a cloud backup solution that can move supersized datasets over the Internet fast and easy. “Zetta.net’s world-class support team helped us move over 60TB fast with its WAN optimization, and without any hiccups,” says Johnson.

Enterprise-grade Cloud Backup Eliminates Failed Backups, Improves Speed and IT Staff Efficiency
Having large daily change rates was a key issue for Kleinfelder, resulting in high failure rates with the previous solution. Since moving to Zetta.net, the company has saved five to seven hours a week in staff time managing backups and failed backups are no longer an issue.

Zetta.net’s fast cloud backup and recovery speed was a critical factor. During a recent office closure, Kleinfelder needed to move data from the office to its data center and they used Zetta.net to recover the data directly from the cloud. “It took one-third of the time to restore data from Zetta.net’s cloud versus our local server to our data center,” says Johnson.

Third-party Speed Test Results: 40x Faster Cloud Backup
A recent third-party cloud backup speed test between Zetta.net and MozyPro was conducted. An initial 490GB of image backup was used for the full backup and 25GB of files were changed, representing an aggressive five percent change rate. The results revealed that Zetta.net achieves 40X faster cloud backup for the full backup and 9X faster for incremental backup compared to MozyPro.

AGOURA HILLS, CA – May 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — NovaStor, an international provider of award-winning backup solutions, proudly presents NovaBACKUP xSP’s new version 17 for managed service providers. The new release is focused on decreasing the complexity while providing more significant information in clean, precise, and easy to read status updates.

The new real-time reporting capabilities include a coherent overview about successful and failed backup jobs. Having all of the necessary information available at one glance helps service providers to summarize accurate information for their customers. Individual email templates and an updated log viewer further simplify the everyday management tasks. To enhance the reliability of the backup inside the cloud, NovaStor implemented an in-depth data verification of sent files. Selecting a pre-configured NAS device for disaster recovery or virtual machine backup jobs, and a one-step SMTP configuration for email notifications, allows for a faster implementation and therewith a higher customer satisfaction.

“NovaStor provides data protection solutions for both sides of the cloud,” says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor. “A secure, stable, and scalable backup software is key to offering managed backup as a service. With our new release of NovaBACKUP xSP, we are continuing to support our partners with a reliable backup software and expert advice for their business model.”

NovaBACKUP xSP is a cloud backup solution for service providers that breaks the industry mold. While supporting all current Windows systems, VMware and Hyper-V, service providers can back up their customer’s data either to a local device or to the cloud storage hosted in their data center. Military grade end-to-end encryption, bandwidth optimized data transfer, and the web based Central Management Console with clear reports ensure that the data is secure at all times.

Private customers, small businesses, and managed service providers who don’t have the capacity to host their own backup server can utilize the service from NovaStor’s selected premium partners. FirstBackup has been a ‘ValueCREATE! Managed Service Provider’ for more than 10 years. Their expert knowledge helps with offering a smooth managed backup with setup assistance, automated backups, and 24×7 data availability.

Data-Deposit-Box-DataDepositBox-Online-Backup-Cloud-Data-Remote-Backup
  • Meets needs of hybrid environments by making data from file sync and share services, such as OneDrive and Dropbox, visible to IT for protection, discovery and compliance
  • Launches new file sharing and sync capabilities to deliver unique security and compliance benefits with enterprise-wide search and discovery of datacenter and endpoint data
  • Enables organizations to easily provide a “personal” cloud for all of a user’s data, enabling easy storage, access and safe sharing of files from virtually anywhere

TINTON FALLS, NJ – May 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — (NASDAQ: CVLT) — Addressing growing security concerns about the broad range of documents, presentations, emails and spreadsheets being spread inside and outside of companies using file sync and share solutions, Commvault today announced new capabilities to help business users more safely store, access and share files virtually anywhere. With the expansion of capabilities within its Endpoint Data Protection Solution Set, Commvault offers businesses an enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) solution that provides a smart complement, and/or alternative, to existing solutions by adhering to corporate data management best practices so that sensitive data remains secure in compliance with business requirements.

While the increasing use of file sharing services like OneDrive and Dropbox is driving new levels of collaboration in the enterprise, it comes with a cost: these files and the data within them are not backed-up, and not subject to the same data management disciplines considered routine in enterprise environments. As a result, CIOs, compliance and risk officers, and general counsels are increasingly concerned about meeting legal and compliance requirements as users share data in and out of the enterprise. With the launch of Commvault File Sharing, organizations now have a secure solution that brings data fully under IT control for the most security sensitive use cases, without trading off usability, as a holistic, end-to-end solution delivering comparable features, functionality and ease of use as other solutions on the market. By having a user’s data stored in a secure repository accessible via any web browser or mobile device, enterprises using Commvault File Sharing are able to meet stringent regulatory and data governance requirements.

Commvault also announced the availability of Edge Drive™, a new feature within Commvault File Sharing, which delivers a virtual folder that acts as a “personal cloud” for real-time sharing across mobile devices and through a web console, providing universal access for file sharing and collaboration. Edge Drive captures data from various sources, including other EFSS solutions, assuring seamless data protection and governance, without sacrificing usability, functionality or flexibility.

“It’s no secret that IT is losing its grip on corporate data through the combination of poor data governance and an increasing reliance on less secure file sharing solutions,” said Rama Kolappan, senior director and head of Commvault’s Information and Mobility Management Business Unit. “Through Commvault File Sharing and our new Edge Drive feature, users now have the freedom to share, collaborate and be productive from virtually anywhere in the world without any tradeoffs in security and compliance. As an established leader in back-up and information management, we are proud to be able to give enterprises a ‘best of both worlds’ solution that doesn’t cut corners in file synchronization, sharing, usability and just as importantly, data governance and security.”

Recognizing the broad adoption of existing file sync and share solutions in the market, Commvault Endpoint Data Protection Solution Set can also be used to complement and reduce the risk of existing cloud services by assuring that the data shared through OneDrive, Dropbox and others is visible to IT, secured and backed up, and fully searchable for use by end users and for eDiscovery.

“Commvault File Sharing and its Edge Drive™ feature fit in line with the market demand for secure, scalable collaboration platforms that enable end-users to easily share content worldwide between employees and nonemployees while meeting IT’s protection, recovery, and compliance requirements,” said Liz Conner, Research Manager, IDC. “As a result, Commvault is helping to bring control back to organizations with secure sharing and collaboration capabilities that add strategic value to its core endpoint data protection solution set.”

Leveraging a unique and differentiated single-platform architecture, businesses gain value from a range of features and capabilities, including:

  • A fully-integrated solution for endpoint data backup, recovery, access, security, file sharing and data loss prevention.
  • Flexibility in deployment options including on premises, hybrid or in the cloud (and via partners for managed or hosted solutions).
  • Unique security and compliance benefits with enterprise-wide search and discovery of datacenter and endpoint data.
  • Insights into file type, size and age to make more informed business decisions regarding data and information management.
  • Increased security and usability to mobile devices, including features such as end-user search of protected data, that also improves mobile productivity.
  • The ability to sync content across all of a user’s devices.
  • An easy way to browse, download, manage, and restore files from the Edge Drive folder to a local device.
  • Seamless sharing of files and folders from the Edge Drive folder with other users via the web or mobile app.
  • Enterprise-grade security so data is encrypted at source, in transit and at rest.
  • Administrative control to manage policies and permissions for all users at scale.

Unlike many file share solutions that require the additional cost and integration efforts of third-party tools to make data searchable from multiple data silos for events such as litigation and audit, Commvault’s latest file sync and share capabilities enable enterprise-wide search on a comprehensive data set for compliance and eDiscovery, including integrated legal hold. Hosted in the ContentStore, Commvault’s unique single, fully-integrated data repository, files can be accessed by both internal and external users to foster productivity and collaboration without relinquishing ownership of the data or introducing new solutions. This centralized approach to data management is especially relevant in highly-regulated industries such as financial services and healthcare where having compliance, eDiscovery and security measures in place is extremely critical.

Commvault File Sharing with the new Edge Drive™ feature is available now and is licensed per user.

About Commvault Endpoint Data Protection Solution Set
Commvault Endpoint Data Protection Solution Set is a complete offering for endpoint data backup, recovery, access, security, data loss prevention, analytics, eDiscovery & compliance and file sync and share. By protecting data stored on endpoints as well as providing visibility into data residing in file sync and share solutions, Commvault enables IT to have holistic control of corporate data. Security features such as file level encryption, remote wipe, geolocation, single sign-on and two factor authentication help organizations reduce risk of data loss or breach. Once information is collected into a centralized virtual repository, the data can be used for analytics and enterprise-wide search to meet eDiscovery and compliance needs. In addition to reducing cost and risk, Commvault’s solution also enhances user productivity through secure file sync and share.

About Commvault A singular vision — a belief in a better way to address current and future data management needs — guides Commvault in the development of Singular Information Management® solutions for high-performance data protection, universal availability and simplified management of data on complex storage networks.

Industry’s Leading Solution for Integrating Macs into Windows File Sharing Environments Now Offers Support for Mobile Workers to Access Files on Any Device

Burlington, MA – MAY 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – Acronis®, a global leader in new generation data protection, today unveiled Acronis Access Connect – its latest file and print sharing solution for SMBs and enterprises. Acronis Access Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP)is the leading solution for integrating Macs into businesses and enterprises. With this new release, Acronis Access Connect adds broad support for mobile workers to securely access files using iOS, Android, and Windows phones and tablets. This combined support across the range of PC, Mac and mobile platforms lets employees keep using the devices they love, while enabling IT departments to deliver a seamless, scalable, and problem-free file server access and print sharing experience for users.

Ease-of-Use for IT and Employees
With Acronis Access Connect, mobile workers and road warriors can now access their work files wherever they need them, using the intuitively designed Access Connect mobile clients for iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices. Minimal or no end user training is required for mobile users, especially those familiar with Mac and Windows file sharing environments.

For IT managers and professionals, Acronis Access Connect eliminates SMB protocol bugs, performance issues and compatibility problems related to integrating Macs into Windows environments, reducing help desk calls by as much as 70%. Acronis Access Connect installs in a matter of minutes on Windows servers, delivering immediate time-to-value for IT administrators and support personnel. The solution allows employees to be more productive when working with files on their PCs, Macs and mobile devices – whenever and wherever they choose.

Employees Using Macs at Tipping Point
As bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies continue to transform the way employees work worldwide, Macs in the workplace are becoming more common. In fact, a 2014 survey of 376 IT professionals conducted by Dimensional Research1 found that user preference is the top reason given by IT administrators for supporting Macs. The survey also found that 66 percent of businesses are already using Macs today, and more than 70 percent officially support Macs as a company endpoint.

While many employees clearly prefer Macs, there are challenges from an IT perspective when it comes to file sharing, including compatibility, search performance issues, and a poor user experience. With unmatched compatibility and transparency, Acronis Access Connect allows Mac users to take advantage of key features they expect when connecting to Windows or NAS file servers, including:

·       Fast, full content searching using Network Spotlight

·       Automatic backups using Time Machine

·       Fast browsing of network shares

·       Glitch-free operations when using key applications, such as Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Suite

Phoenix Printing Plates Eliminates Connectivity Issues, Improves Productivity
Phoenix Printing Plates, award-winning flexo printing plate manufacturer in the UK, operates with their designers and production teams under constant tight deadlines. Using Macs as quickly and efficiently as possible in this production-driven environment is a requirement. Prior to using Acronis, the company’s Mac users were not able to efficiently connect to their Windows SBS 2010 Server, wasting time and reducing productivity. Folders were slow to display contents, searching was impossible, and reading and writing files was sluggish for users. Within 30 minutes of installing Acronis Access Connect, the entire studio was connected to the Windows Server, resulting in more productive Mac users with fewer IT and performance issues. In addition, the solution does not require the installation of additional software on the Mac clients.

“Everyone in the studio now gets a seamless connection and experience, and everyone is happy,” said Kristian Wells, Repro Account Manager at Phoenix Printing Plates. “We don’t even realize that Acronis Access Connect is running as once it is installed on the server we don’t ever need to touch it.”

“Acronis Access Connect cures two of the biggest IT headaches when it comes to file sharing,” said Derick Naef, General Manager of Mobility Solutions at Acronis. “First, we help IT support the increasing numbers of Mac users by virtually eliminating file sharing support issues, and second, we have opened up filer server access across any device – empowering all of your employees to work and collaborate from anywhere.”

Virtustream Will Form EMC’s Managed Cloud Services Business; A Key Enabler For EMC Federation to Deliver Industry’s Most Comprehensive Hybrid Cloud Portfolio

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • EMC to acquire Virtustream (all references to EMC refer to the EMC Federation of businesses)
  • Fast-rising Virtustream to form EMC’s new managed cloud services business
  • Represents transformational element of EMC’s strategy to help customers move all of their applications to cloud-based IT environments
  • Virtustream is trusted by enterprises worldwide to migrate, manage and run their mission-critical enterprise applications in the cloud, including SAP
  • Virtustream portfolio to be delivered directly to customers and through EMC’s global partner ecosystem
  • Virtustream to operate as a separate EMC Federation business, reporting to Joe Tucci

HOPKINTON, MA , MAY 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held Virtustream. When the transaction closes, Virtustream will form EMC’s new managed cloud services business. The acquisition represents a transformational element of EMC’s strategy to help customers move all applications to cloud-based IT environments. With the addition of Virtustream, EMC completes the industry’s most comprehensive hybrid cloud portfolio to support all applications, all workloads and all cloud models.

Virtustream CEO Rodney Rogers will report to Joe Tucci, EMC Chairman and CEO.

“Virtustream is an exceptional company and this is a critical and transformative acquisition for EMC in one of the industry’s fastest-growing and most important sectors,” said Joe Tucci. “With Virtustream in place, EMC will be uniquely positioned as a single source for our customers’ entire hybrid cloud infrastructure and services needs. We could not be more delighted that Virtustream will be joining the EMC Federation family. It’s a game changer.”

One of the world’s fastest-rising cloud software and services companies, Virtustream is trusted by enterprises worldwide to migrate, run and manage mission-critical applications in the cloud, including SAP. Virtustream customers include marquis enterprises such as The Coca-Cola Company, Domino Sugar, Heinz, Hess Corporation, Kawasaki, Lexmark, Scotts Miracle-Gro and a global footprint of service provider partners who use Virtustream software to power their cloud offerings.

Virtustream’s cloud software and Infrastructure-as-a-Service portfolio will be delivered directly to customers and through partners. EMC Federation service provider partners will receive access to Virtustream’s xStream cloud management software platform and be enabled to adopt and deliver their own branded services based upon it.

Presently EMC provides the Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution — an on-premise private cloud offering that provides on-ramps to public cloud services such as VMware vCloud Air. Virtustream brings to the EMC portfolio a managed cloud software and services capability — whether on or off premise — which EMC also intends to incorporate into the Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution. With the addition of Virtustream, EMC will enable customers to move their entire application portfolio into a cloud environment.

Founded in 2009 by Rodney Rogers and president & CTO Kevin Reid, Virtustream delivers application lifecycle automation and orchestration with a particular focus on I/O-intensive mission-critical enterprise applications such as SAP S/4HANA and others. Virtustream’s xStream platform is tightly integrated with VMware vSphere and architected to deliver service level agreements (SLAs) for not only infrastructure availability, but for application performance and transaction latency as well.

“Virtustream has established itself as an industry leader and innovator for running mission-critical enterprise applications in the cloud,” explained Rodney Rogers, Virtustream Chairman and CEO. “We’re proud to be joining the EMC Federation where our combined capabilities, products and services will allow us to accelerate our vision of delivering the platform of record for enterprise systems, and address the complete breadth of cloud computing needs.”

Recognition by Leading Analyst Firms
Virtustream’s rapid rise to premier cloud provider status is evidenced by Forrester* ranking Virtustream as one of only two “Leaders” in the hosted private cloud solutions market. Gartner has recognized Virtustream in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service — one of the few independent companies to reach this status worldwide in public cloud IaaS.

In addition, Virtustream integrates a comprehensive defense-in-depth security model and governance solution. This market-leading attribute is validated by Virtustream’s highest ranking in the area of security and compliance in Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service” report. Virtustream delivers its capabilities both as software for on-premise or service provider deployment and as the foundation of the company’s IaaS solution.

Transaction Terms
The all-cash transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015, subject to customary closing conditions, is valued at approximately $1.2 billion, and has been approved by the boards of directors of both EMC and Virtustream and the requisite Virtustream stockholders. The transaction is expected to have no material impact to EMC financial results in 2015 and is expected to be additive to revenues and accretive to EPS in 2016.

Federation Executive Quotes:

David Goulden, Chief Executive Officer, EMC Information Infrastructure
“As IT organizations race to keep pace with the demands of the modern and rapidly changing business, they need to leverage both private and public clouds. The EMC Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution enables customers to deploy rapidly a hybrid cloud that incorporates the best of both. Today’s news completes the picture, culminating in what customers want most, a one-stop-shop experience for their entire hybrid cloud needs.”

Pat Gelsinger, Chief Executive Officer, VMware
“This acquisition is great news for our customers, VMware and the EMC Federation of businesses.  With the addition of Virtustream, we will be able to offer customers a comprehensive set of hybrid cloud offerings, including private, managed and public cloud solutions. As we deliver VMware vCloud Air to our customer base to help them continue their journey to the cloud, Virtustream complements and expands our value proposition.”

Partner Quotes:

Bill McDermott, Chief Executive Officer, SAP
“SAP has a long-term partnership with Virtustream to host mission-critical applications in the cloud. We are excited to see Virtustream become part of EMC. SAP will continue to serve as a partner with the new EMC managed cloud services business and we remain ever committed to supporting the hybrid cloud landscapes of shared customers around the world.”

Don Whittington, VP & CIO, Florida Crystals Corporation
“Virtustream has been a key strategic partner for us for the last 5 years and has had a material impact on our complex IT landscape and how we run our business. The coming together of Virtustream and EMC is a natural fit that offers great promise through their combined ability to address the wide spectrum of cloud computing requirements.”

Tom Frana, CEO, ViON
“ViON leverages Virtustream’s xStream software platform to provide secure cloud solutions for federal government agencies. The combination of Virtustream’s capabilities with EMC’s robust security portfolio and comprehensive cloud solutions will allow us to bring even more compelling services to market.”

JOHANNESBURG, SA – 25 May 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ – Attix5 has implemented its server backup solution at hygiene service provider Bidvest Steiner to automate its backups and give it an affordable and scalable off-site solution to meet growing organisational requirements.

About the client
Bidvest Steiner, formally Steiner Services, commenced operation in South Africa in 1958 and is a leader in the field of hygiene care, constantly exploring new ideas and the latest innovations in hygiene. It has grown from a relatively small hygiene service provider owned and controlled by the American Linen Supply Company to an independent local brand with an infrastructure of 30 branches nationwide.

Problem
“In the past, Bidvest Steiner relied on running its own backup server environment. It was a timeous process that entailed performing backups on-site with a person having to manually change media and take it to an off-site location for safekeeping. This significantly added to the management complexity. When the system crashed, we were faced with a choice of either replacing it with a similar structure or upgrading to a new environment,” says Jan Thuynsma, IT manager at Bidvest Steiner.

He says the fact that the replacement cost would be significant and management of it was already cumbersome, the company opted to investigate a new backup system.

IS, its hosting provider, recommended the company approach Attix5. Given that it was familiar with the business and its technology, Bidvest Steiner reached out to Attix5.

“We looked at Attix5 and their server backup solution met all our backup retention and offsite requirements. In addition, the solution promised a smooth integration and meant that we could keep the existing internal backup processes the same to minimise the impact of the upgrade,” adds Thuynsma.

Solution
The solution was implemented without any significant challenges. Given the fact that Attix5 also provided hosting services for the client, it was able to offer a complete solution that could integrate easily with the systems at Bidvest Steiner.

“Our technical team could provide the client with a full range of support and services to address any questions they had during the implementation. With the solution being user-friendly to manage both backups and restores, the users at Bidvest Steiner could easily migrate to the new environment with minimal disruption to daily operations,” says Heidi Weyers, general manager of sales at Attix5.

Results
For Bidvest Steiner, the new Attix5 system improved backup and recovery from the get go.

“The new system is so easy to use and it simplifies what was previously a complicated and arduous process. In addition, the reporting provided by the Attix5 solution means we always know what the status is on the process. It provides very good filtering of the various file types so we can really customise exactly what needs to be backed up and when,” says Thuynsma.

He says Attix5 also conducts pro-active monitoring to ensure all its backups run as expected in the event of an error on the user side. This means the organisation can focus on its strategy while Attix5 takes care of any backup and restore issues.

Weyers says such has been the success of the installation that Bidvest Steiner is in the process of implementing a desktop-based solution which tests user backups.

Attix5
Since being established in 1999 by a group of IT enthusiasts who tried to send large volumes of encrypted data down a very slow narrowband dial-up line, cloud and security have been part of its DNA. The company has grown from there to become a market leader, providing rock-solid data protection and recovery solutions to SMEs and listed enterprises around the world. Its aim is to ensure data protection and recovery for stress-free business continuity.

Analyst Quotes
George Crump, President and Founder, Storage Switzerland
“Rubrik is one of the more interesting technologies I’ve seen recently in the backup and recovery space. Their ability to converge data protection architectures while making backups live, changes not only the way companies purchase, deploy and manage data protection, it should also change the way companies think about data.”

DataDepositBox Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Cloud Computing Challenges and Issues

Cloud symbols were common in network diagrams prior to 2008. After 2008, however, a new assortment of services were unveiled. These services allowed people to access computing services over the Internet, in a “virtual” platform that came to be referred to as “Cloud Computing”.

Cloud computing is evolving daily. From social networks to shopping networks, data storage, and online software applications, cloud computing is finding its way into almost every business, regardless of its size. Cloud computing can dynamically increase storage capacity, as well as offer a variety of applications at little or no cost, saving businesses thousands of dollars:

  • No need to invest in software or licensing
  • No need for additional personnel

Cloud computing is huge business

A lot of information is now stored in virtual storage. The safety and security of this huge volume of information is starting to concern people. This concern surrounding security is one of the biggest dilemmas businesses face, and is causing many organizations to be very reluctant to accept cloud computing. Accordingly, every business should have a data disaster recovery protocol in place to ensure business continuity in case of a major cataclysmic event. Cloud backup insures against this very thing.

Businesses have expressed several other areas of concern. For example:

  • Data location – not knowing what country the data is in;
  • Data Segregation – provider should have this ability;
  • Long-term viability – the ability to retract a contract in the event the provider is sold and/or goes out of business.

Three types of clouds exist: the Private Cloud, Public cloud, and the Hybrid cloud. Inside those clouds, there are three types of service platforms that could exist: the SaaS (Software as a Service), the PaaS (Platform as a Service) and the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).

For those organizations that wish to retain control of all the aspects of cloud computing that give rise to concerns, the private cloud would most likely be their optimum choice. This imitates cloud computing, typically, arranged through the internal data centre. Virtual applications and scalable resources are combined and offered to cloud users. This is one of the most secure environments due to the limited and controlled number of users.

The most traditional type of cloud is the public cloud. The resources are available as self-serve over the Internet. The service is available on a pay-as-you-go basis through web applications and web services. An off-site, third party, company provides these services. Public clouds are less secure than private clouds due to the potential for cyber-attacks.

As the name suggests, a Hybrid cloud is a private cloud linked external cloud services. They are set up as a single unit with centralized management.

Cloud computing is revolutionizing our usage of the Internet. Cloud computing services should be researched thoroughly before you sign up. These technological advances, when used properly, will help make your life easier. Research and understand the security risks and other challenges associated with cloud computing.

Trans-Atlantic DR Solution between the Cayman Islands and Ireland

DUBLIN, IRELAND – May 25, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — Savenet Solutions, a leading Dublin based cloud storage and DR company, has recently completed a highly innovative disaster recovery solution for DMS Offshore Investment Services. DMS is the worldwide leader in fund governance with more than 225 professionals representing leading investment funds with assets under management exceeding $330 billion.

DMS, headquartered in the Cayman Islands, required a remote disaster recovery solution that would enable them to recover their critical virtual servers with all their data intact within minutes in the event of any form of disaster. The solution needed to be able to expand quickly and to be fully managed, including daily monitoring and quarterly DR testing.

To fulfil this requirement, Savenet have designed and implemented a highly sophisticated trans-Atlantic DR solution including hosted cloud servers for DMS that seamlessly integrates with their onsite IT environment. The DR solution is built primarily using Zerto and VMware’s vCloud Director.

Zerto provides enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solutions for virtualized IT infrastructure & cloud. It provides enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solutions for virtualised IT infrastructure and cloud.

In the event of a full disaster, where the servers are all out of action due to a catastrophic failure like fire or a flood, the business can roll over to the cloud servers easily and extremely quickly. It ensures that DMS’ mission critical applications are always available to their users and customers, and can withstand any form of disaster; from a locally based minor system interruption or server failure, to a major disaster where their computer room is destroyed.

The project is valued at €200,000 over three years and took three months to implement.

Lorcan Cunningham, Managing Director of Savenet said, “The cloud approach to DR has enabled DMS to lower their business risk whilst reducing their capital and operating IT costs. The solution is a service that can easily scale with their global business growth, with no increase in IT footprint or management, allowing them to focus on core activities.”

Neil Stone-Wigg, Chief Technical Officer said, “With the ongoing global expansion of DMS our strategy was to go to the experts to help us design out a managed global DR Solution. Rather than have to continue to buy double, Savenet are now able to provide us with a high quality, high availability service that we pay on an Op-ex model. The business now benefits from a scalable, robust and resilient solution that is also highly cost effective, thanks to the expertise provided by the Savenet team.”

“We took great care when selecting our partner for something as important as our disaster recovery facility and our experiences so far have proved, both to our technical team and to the executive management team, that we have a great partner in Savenet. Right from the proposal and design phases we had the confidence that Savenet understood our needs, proposed solutions that met them in a way that matched seamlessly with our own processes and had the technical ability to deliver them,” he said.

Backup-Technology Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Mitigating and Avoiding Downtime – Part I

In this day and age, backing up your data is crucial to a smooth functioning of your company, be it a small, medium or large sized business. A loss of data can result in a significant loss of revenue for your company. In addition, data loss can cause downtime or an interruption of computing services. The solution to both of these problems is a simple one — back up your data online in the cloud.

Medical informatics, nuclear power stations, banks and other financial institutions, aeronautics/airlines, news and journalism; e-commerce and transaction processing or even online games industries would immediately feel the pressure of downtime or loss of data. A minor downtime and a loss of data in these industries could prove to be disastrous, as existing customers experience frustrations and may consider cancelling their services altogether; and would-be-customers could end up avoiding this particular service, resulting in loss of revenues.

Many contract defaults could be attributed to system downtime or loss of data, resulting in litigation and financial losses. These industries need to ensure high availability, reliability and alternate data access routes to safeguard against business losses, resulting from unplanned downtime, which is the time when computing services are unavailable for business operations.

Cloud backup service providers ensure that your data is safeguarded in the Cloud. Your data is in no danger of being lost.In addition, online backup service providers are a safeguard against downtime and ensure that your company will continue to operate regardless of hardware or software glitches, a natural calamity or just a power outage. System outages can have a serious impact on industries that access their computers 24 x 7 x 365. Others may be sensitive to the time of the outage. Peak hour outages can cripple business and have long-term repercussions on the business.

Online backup service provides offer service level agreements for their customers that spell out the guaranteed service uptime percentage value that they expect over the period of a month, typically five-nines, i.e. — 99.999%. Zero percent downtime indicates that the backup service provider has made arrangements to ensure that the customer has no system outages and the access to the server is made available at all times. Customers will, therefore, have to guard only against outages that may occur at their end of the network, giving them peace of mind.

In Part II [pasted below], we will discuss further points on avoiding downtime.

Backup-Technology Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Mitigating and Avoiding Downtime – Part II

In Part I, we discussed the importance of having a service level agreement to keep cloud services available anytime, from anywhere in order to reduce downtime. If the service provider’s networks are available at all times, users need to worry only for their own infrastructure.

Having said that, however, downtime must always be monitored at all times using advanced network monitoring tools. Record of system outages or downtime should automatically be logged for analysis in real time. Admin should have the ability to enter identified names and email addresses in the system for notifications in case of failures.

Failover servers are programmed to seamlessly take over the service while repairs are carried out to correct the problems in the main server. In addition, help desks and trouble-shooting services offered by online backup services enable the customer to alert his service provider about any and every possible system difficulties that they may encounter in the use of the service. Backing up your data in the cloud has not only the benefit of safeguarding your data, but also minimising or eliminating the detrimental effects of down time for your company.

By putting your data in the cloud, you have the convenience that come with accessibility, scalability and mobility. In addition, you have protected your data from physical destruction, theft, natural disasters, operating systems and hard drive crashes. Cost savings, easy sharing and “set-it-and-forget-it” operations that comes with automated systems are additional benefits. At the same time, extreme care should be exercised in selecting a cloud based backup service provider so as to avoid any fly-by-night operators.

Small, medium and large enterprises use the cloud because not only it is effective and saves money, but also it mitigates downtime. Occasionally, cloud services might get interrupted for various reasons. Even Amazon’s AWS suffered downtime in the past.

To avoid downtime, it is suggested that you get a signed copy of the SLAs, have both on-premise and cloud services, perform a thorough risk analysis, and determine your true downtime cost per hour, which might not be an easy task as it requires complex assumptions and calculations. As cloud services are charged on “pay as you go” basis, calculating actual downtime costs becomes a moving target. However, other costs such as operational, salaries, connectivity, and so on can be figured out easily.

Downtime could possibly be avoided by developing a well thought business continuity and disaster recovery plans. It must be remembered that the cloud does not guarantee that you will have a 100% uptime services, rather, it mitigates the risks of downtime.

INTRONIS IS ALWAYS THERE
By Garry Dumas & Miguel Leonor

Verse 1
You know your data’s been out in the cold too long
Let me back it up, keep it safe from harm
I know you’ve been hurt, crying night and day
Cuz your current provider, says your data’s gone away

Chorus
I know what you want from me, it’s my backup and recovery
Nothing else I’d rather see than the protection of your SMB

Verse 2
Disaster can strike, in a moment’s time
I’ll keep you safe, protecting you from crime
A flood and a fire are no match for me
My heart is so strong, my cloud recovery

Chorus
I know what you want from me, it’s my backup and recovery
Nothing else I’d rather see than the protection of your SMB

Technology Integration Offers Customers Cost-Effective Solutions to Address Wireless Security Concerns

CAMPBELL and SUNNYVALE, CA – May 21, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) and Aerohive Networks® (NYSE:HIVE) -

Press Release Highlights:

  • Barracuda and Aerohive are working together to bring customers more granular visibility into creating better-defined security policies for wireless access through a technology integration and joint customer messaging.
  • Aerohive’s HiveOS® devices, including access points, switches, and routers, now can integrate with Barracuda Web Security Service, Barracuda Web Filter, and Barracuda NG
  • Customers can benefit from the integration with high performance, cost-effective solutions to address wireless security concerns in “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) environments.

Barracuda and Aerohive announced today the availability of products which automate communication of wireless security policies between devices to reduce costs and improve efficiencies for customers. The mobile landscape is dramatically evolving, with trends such as BYOD and the “Internet of Things” (IoT) affecting every kind of organization, often without them even being aware of the infiltration. This mobility explosion is also causing organizations to rethink their underpinning infrastructure and security approach. By using Barracuda and Aerohive products together, customers can enable more advanced wireless access and security with greater user visibility in BYOD environments.

Granular Security Policy Enforcement
Each user, device, and application poses a potential threat to an organization’s security posture, and IT teams are struggling to balance the demand for flexibility against the security requirements needed to protect the network. Barracuda and Aerohive will provide customers more granular visibility into creating better-defined wireless security policies.

Enhanced Regulatory Compliance
Aerohive devices, including access points, switches, and routers, now can integrate with Barracuda Web Security Service, Barracuda Web Filter, and Barracuda NG Firewall. The integration is particularly useful for organizations bound by regulatory compliance requirements including education, healthcare, financial services, and government organizations.

Highlighted benefits include:

  • Enhanced Per-User Visibility and Enforcement – Greater user identity, device type and IP address information can enhance and help create more defined security policies based on context.
  • Client-Less Operation – Seamless information sharing between Aerohive and Barracuda products – no client or profile needs to be installed on client devices.
  • Zero-Cost Data Performance – Easy product integrations with no in-line performance hit allow for easy customer installations.
  • Comprehensive Application Visibility and Control – Enforce application controls at both the edge of the network and at the gateway, ensuring applications are identified and prioritized/de-prioritized/blocked based on context at the ideal enforcement point.

Quotes:
“Many of our customers are deploying wireless broadly across their environments but struggle with the risks that are associated,” said Michael Hughes, SVP, WW Sales, Barracuda.  “Aerohive is well known for its secure and easy to deploy managed wireless solutions. When combined with Barracuda’s award-winning security technology, organizations have the capability to roll out advanced wireless capabilities, and support broader access and BYOD initiatives in a manner that maintains the security of the infrastructure. This will help customers reduce security concerns and enable IT professionals to create effective policies for all levels of users on their network.”

Many of Aerohive’s customers already are using Barracuda in tandem with Aerohive products,” said Bill Hoppin, VP of Business Development, Aerohive. Barracuda is known for its advanced security solutions, and by integrating with them to create solutions that our joint channel partners can offer, we believe we are giving our customers tremendous value.”

“Wireless connectivity today is expected and people use multiple devices for business critical and personal activities. While Internet access is vital for doing business, securing that access is essential,” said Charles Kanavel, CEO, The Kanavel Group. “We are excited about the Barracuda/Aerohive technology integration and the potential to provide our joint customers with leading technologies to help them better manage their security initiatives.”

“We see the potential for the combined solution to simplify the complex IT environment without sacrificing any of the enterprise wireless and security capabilities our customers need,” said Rahul Narsimhan, founder and CEO, Securicore Inc. “We have always felt an integration between the two would be a huge win for our customers.”

Iron Mountain Study Shows Impact of the Digital Information Age on Information Management Professionals

BOSTON, MA – May 21, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM) today released the results of a study[i] highlighting disconnects between what business leaders and records and information managers (RIMs) perceive as the most critical skills for future success in records and information management. Records and information managers are central to an organization’s information management strategy, but as the information they are tasked with managing has and continues to become increasingly electronic; priorities, and therefore required skills, are also evolving. In fact, nearly half (48 percent) of North American information managers believe their role and responsibilities have changed significantly over the last five years.

However, while RIMs still prioritize some of the core competencies of their role like compliance, security and accessibility, the business leaders they report to are placing more importance on soft skills like understanding and alignment on business strategy and goals. The survey found that both business leaders and RIMs agree that the ability to add value, insight and analysis around the information they manage, beyond simple reporting, is the most critical skill for RIMs to master in the digital information age, with a third (37 percent) of U.S. business decision makers and a 25 percent of RIMs agreeing. However, while business leaders cited a strategic outlook and awareness of business goals as the second highest priority, at 23 percent of the respondents, RIMs ranked this fourth highest at only 13 percent of respondents.

According to the records and information managers surveyed, the second most critical skill set is compliance and security capabilities; with 21 percent naming it as a priority compared to just 12 percent of decision makers. Similarly, information professionals rank the understanding of digital transformation in third place with 17 percent, compared to a mere four percent of business leaders. Both the records and information managers and their business leaders are confident that information professionals have the ability to meet these emerging needs, although information managers rate themselves higher across all areas of expertise.

“The study reveals worrying gaps in perception and expectation between business leaders and their information professionals. Companies wishing to harness the full business value of information should look to close this gap and close it quickly,” said Sue Trombley, director of professional services at Iron Mountain. “Business leaders and records and information management professionals carry a responsibility for achieving this. Business leaders need to ensure their information management teams are effectively integrated into all areas of the business and have access to the professional development they need. However, records and information managers will need to take on the challenge of developing the skills demanded to navigate a shifting information landscape.”

According to the results, it’s clear that the information management professional of tomorrow must not only have a solid grasp on the technical requirements of the profession but also excel in interpersonal and business skills, including communication and leveraging information to drive real business value.

The new product provides end-to-end protection against malware, ransomware, identity theft and other hazards encountered online along with automated patching of vulnerable applications, complete PC optimization and convenient cloud-based backup. Response to the product’s beta release has been overwhelmingly positive, with testers finding its usability to be far simpler and less obtrusive than conventional anti-virus software. Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security covers all household PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones.

Reported one beta user, “the product is above and beyond all the other virus protection software we have used. The first day it was installed, it caught more malware than two other security systems had [caught] combined (in months of use).”

Total Defense provides dual malware scanning engines, a client-based scanning engine augmented by cloud-based scanning technology to enhance protection. UNLIMITED also includes a vulnerability protection feature that automatically patches the most common applications once an update becomes available from the software publisher.

In addition, Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security also prevents viruses, ransomware, rootkits and Trojan horses from infecting PCs, Macs, tablets and mobile devices. It also provides download protection for the most popular browsers – Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox – verifying websites in real time and notifying users of potential dangers. A Social Network Defender function instantly detects threats on social sites and alerts users.

Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security reports enable users to monitor system status on an ongoing basis and via monthly reports detailing protection activities. The PC Optimization function keeps computers operating at peak performance, and an online backup feature seamlessly backs up important files, including pictures, documents, music and other digital essentials to a secure offsite location.

“Overall, I feel it is something different in the world of AntiVirus and Defense software,” reported another UNLIMITED beta tester. “…I liked how things were put together and easily accessed – this is a product I would use and recommend to others.”

Increased SaaS Use of Popular Cloud Applications—Including Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps, and Salesforce.com—Puts the Onus on Companies to Protect Their Data

TORONTO – May 20, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced further evidence of a growing trend in business productivity solution deployments: SaaS use is on the rise through the increasing popularity of applications including Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps, and Salesforce.com, causing companies using these services to examine the issue of data protection to prevent data loss.

As evidence of this trend, Odin’s fifth annual U.S. SMB Cloud Insights™ report forecasts that the cloud services market for small and medium business (SMB) will expand 11.4 percent (compound annual growth rate) over the next three years, and is predicted to reach $34.9 billion by 2018. Odin’s CEO Birger Steen recently told the press: “Over the five years that we have been conducting this study, we’ve seen a rapid and consistent growth in SMB consumption of cloud services. Applications and capabilities that were previously reserved for enterprise-size organizations are now benefiting millions of smaller businesses.”

Additionally, through the first three quarters of fiscal 2015, Microsoft reported that its Commercial Office 365 user base rose 10 points since last year, supporting commercial cloud revenue growth of 106 percent . And according to Google’s Senior Vice President and Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora, more than half of all Fortune 500 companies now use Google Apps for Business and the company’s enterprise products. Arora recently told Talkin’ Cloud that more than 5 million businesses use Google’s productivity apps. In the article, reporter Joe Panettieri also noted that “Microsoft and Google are saying the same exact thing about their Fortune 500 penetration,” since during an earnings call, Microsoft’s CFO Amy Hood said over 50 percent of Fortune 500 companies use Azure, and Office 365 now boasts a $1.5 billion annual run rate.

Despite this increased usage in cloud-based business productivity suites, however, most SaaS apps offer very limited data recovery capabilities in the event of data loss. Customers are growing increasingly concerned about these clear limitations, as evidenced by discussions on the topic in Microsoft Office 365’s community forums, where users share disappointing experiences of losing data and needing to do their own backups.

With the industry forecasting continued growth of SaaS use, businesses need to take extra precautions to protect their important data against potential loss due to accidental or malicious deletion. Asigra’s cloud-to-cloud backup support for Microsoft Office 365, for example, provides secure backup of the data to authorized cloud service providers or the organization’s own private cloud.

“As cloud adoption continues to grow, there will be ongoing unreported data loss events inside these environments. Even with secure SaaS applications, it is still the customer’s responsibility to backup that information to ensure its recovery,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “Asigra cloud-to-cloud backup capabilities include the support for Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps, and Salesforce.com. Organizations seeking to prevent the unfortunate loss of data from these key SaaS applications have an ally in this effort with Asigra.”

ARMONK, N.Y. – 20 May 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) is the most popular provider of hosted private cloud according to a survey from independent research firm Forrester Research. IBM hosted private cloud solutions are preferred twice as much as competitive offerings.

Forrester Research found that more than twice as many firms use or plan to use IBM as their primary hosted private cloud platform, and nearly twice as many firms use or plan to use IBM when implementing multiple vendor cloud solutions, compared to the next closest competitor in the survey.

The report, Adoption Profile: Hosted Private Cloud, North America and Europe, Q3 2014,”1 was based on a survey of 2,255 business and technology decision-makers.

https://www.ibm.com/cloud/resourcecenter/content/64

Forrester defines hosted private cloud as a category of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) where the solution lives off-premises in a hosted environment and compute resources are dedicated and isolated for customers.

The survey also reported that the top drivers in choosing to adopt hosted private cloud include improved IT infrastructure and flexibility, lower total cost of ownership for servers, on-demand capacity and scalability, and improved disaster recovery and business continuity.

One concern for choosing to adopt hosted private cloud according to the report was vendor lock-in. The report found that “standards like OASIS’s TOSCA and open source projects like OpenStack provide enterprises the future hope of less lock-in and greater adherence to standards.”

IBM is a leading supporter of open cloud computing and a key contributor of code for OpenStack Integrated Projects and Cloud Foundry.

IBM total cloud revenue – covering public, private and hybrid engagements – was $7.7 billion over the previous 12 months at the end of March 2015; it grew more than 60 percent in first quarter 2015. IBM’s cloud delivered as a service business, a subset of the total, includes IaaS.

Leading Storage Array Company Spins Off from Connected Data to Fuel Next-Phase of Strong Growth

SANTA CLARA – May 20, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – DroboTM, the award-winning maker of smart storage arrays for businesses and professionals, today announced that an investment group comprised of seasoned technology executives has acquired the company. Drobo, which had been operated as an independent subsidiary of Connected Data, will now become a stand-alone entity continuing to offer the complete line of award-winning Drobo storage arrays that provide an unprecedented combination of data protection, expandability and ease of use to business users.

“Drobo is at an exceptional point in its growth and execution strategy,” said Mihir H. Shah, who will serve as Drobo’s new CEO. “Its simple-to-use technology, market adoption and brand recognition make Drobo a very compelling investment opportunity. I anticipate continued rapid growth for Drobo as we engage our escalated execution and expansion strategy for 2015 and beyond.”

Drobo merged with Connected Data in 2013, after which the company has been restructured and now operates from a position of profitability. Since 2013, Drobo has achieved numerous milestones including a complete overhaul of the original Drobo product line and dramatic performance improvements in all classes of products especially the B1200i hybrid storage array.

“Drobo offers innovative technology that is ideally suited for the demanding, high capacity needs of today’s business users,” said Geoff Barrall, founder and CEO of Connected Data and the original founder of Drobo. “We are pleased to have ushered Drobo’s growth for the past two years while also charting the success of Connected Data’s Transporter line of private cloud appliances. With separate target customers and markets, it made sense to separate the companies, so that each can benefit from a more dedicated management team and focused strategic execution for the next phase of growth.”

The Drobo acquisition is effective immediately and will be a seamless transition for customers, partners and employees. Geoff Barrall will remain on Drobo’s board of directors as Drobo and Connected Data each continue to enhance the Drobo and Transporter product lines with continued innovation.

Shah is an experienced technology executive and investor. He was a member of the leadership team at Brocade, where he served as managing director and vice president of corporate development and strategy.

Backup-Technology: Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery

The RealTimes app is now available globally for PC, smartphones, and tablets

SEATTLE, May 19, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ – RealNetworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNWK) today announced the launch of RealTimes™, an innovative new app and service. RealTimes is the fastest and easiest way to get the most out of all of your personal photos and videos. It finds the best photos and videos you’ve taken and automatically turns them into RealTimes Stories™ that can be easily saved and shared.

Experience the interactive Multimedia News Release here:
www.multivu.com/players/English/7450951-realnetworks-video-photo-sharing-app/

RealTimes solves one of the biggest problems consumers face today:  too many photos and videos, and not enough time to organize and share them. RealTimes automatically picks the best moments from a consumer’s photo and video camera roll – that big soccer goal or baby’s first birthday – and automatically and instantly creates an engaging RealTimes Story.  It’s also easy and fast to customize RealTimes Stories by rearranging clips and photos, changing the duration, and adding filters and personal soundtracks.  RealTimes Stories are fun to watch and can easily be shared – recipients don’t even need the app to view the Stories.

RealTimes is great for everyone who uses a smartphone to take pictures, which is to say anyone with a smartphone. But it’s especially valuable for parents, for two reasons: (1) parents take tons of photos and videos of their kids, and (2) because parents are super busy, they don’t have the time to cull through their massive camera rolls to enjoy their photos/videos again or the time to pick the best ones to share with friends and family – they need a solution that creates great results automatically.

“As a busy parent myself, I know firsthand how time-consuming it is to manage and sort through the massive number of photos and videos I take, not to mention trying to share them in a compelling way,” said Rob Glaser, CEO and founder of RealNetworks. “RealTimes automatically does the hard work by instantly creating professional quality RealTimes Stories that are much more enjoyable to watch and easy to share.”

The RealTimes app is available as a free download on nine different devices at launch, including: Android™ phones and tablets, iPhone™, iPad®, Windows® PCs, Roku® TV players, and Chromecast™. It will soon be available on Mac®, Amazon Fire Phone, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Kindle Fire, and Xbox One™. RealTimes comes with two gigabytes (2GB) of cloud storage for free, plus an additional five gigabytes (5GB) to users who enable Auto Upload.

RealTimes also offers two subscription plans: a $4.99 per month Premium Plan for an additional 25GB of storage and a $9.99 per month Unlimited Plan. The Unlimited Plan is one of the best offered on the market today. In addition to the two subscription plans, users can opt for the in-app $.99 purchase which allows them to create a RealTimes Story longer than 30 seconds.

RealTimes significantly expands upon the feature set of its predecessor, the acclaimed video app RealPlayer Cloud, which was launched in 2013 and has more than 11.5 million registered users worldwide. All of RealPlayer Cloud’s great features will be available in RealTimes and current RealPlayer Cloud users can easily upgrade to RealTimes for free. All of their personal media will be automatically migrated to their RealTimes account.

In addition to RealTimes Stories, the RealTimes all-in-one app is loaded with features for getting the most out of your personal media:

  • Manage and enjoy your entire photo and video collection with one app
  • Photos and videos are added automatically when auto upload is enabled
  • Easily share all of your personal videos of any length and photos publicly or privately – recipients do not need the RealTimes app to be able to view the media shared
  • Allows you to safely store your precious family memories in the cloud and access across all your devices
  • Unlimited storage offered for all of your personal photos and videos for up to 15 devices (for a fee)
  • All of your photos and videos are automatically organized into a timeline by date and location making it easy to access and view
  • View videos and photos across your devices: TV, tablet, smartphone or PC – with the highest quality video possible and automatically formatted for each device
  • Upload photos and videos to one account from multiple devices making it easy to manage and enjoy your entire video and photo collection in one place
  • Invited friends and family are automatically notified when new photos, videos, and Stories are added to “Live Albums”
  • Unlimited Plan subscribers have access to all music tracks, all filters/effects, unlimited RealTimes Story duration, and unlimited storage use for up to 15 devices

Panzura’s Global File System and SkyBridge awarded as finalists, proving seamless hybrid cloud technology is essential to Cloud VDI

CAMPBELL, CA. – May 18, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Panzura, leading the charge in removing the barrier to the cloud, was named a finalist in two categories for the 10th annual Best of Citrix Synergy 2015 awards. The company received recognition for its Global File System in Cloud Computing and SkyBridge in New Technology. The awards cover five categories within the virtualization market, including application and desktop virtualization, cloud infrastructure, enterprise mobility management, new technology and best of show.

The 2015 awards received more than 50 product nominations and recognized the most outstanding products on display at Citrix Synergy’s Solutions Expo. Vendors were evaluated by a team of independent judges, experts and editors from SearchVirtualDesktop.com, a part of the TechTarget network. The products were reviewed based on innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.

Panzura’s Global File System (GFS) connects users in different offices around the world and lets them collaborate like they’re in the same room on the same files and applications at the same time. It eliminates the “file open” problem for CAD or similar applications, giving users NAS-like performance at every office. It’s as fast as a local file server in every office, but users are all accessing the same files – no matter where they’re based. The Panzura GFS looks just like a global, locking Windows filer to users, but is backed by a central cloud repository and spans hundreds of sites. It’s simpler, faster and less expensive than putting traditional storage at each site and running WAN optimization over private networks.

Panzura SkyBridge transforms the cloud into an extension of your corporate datacenter. SkyBridge does this by co-locating a consistent, locking file system in the cloud that is identical to the file system in the corporate datacenter and eliminates networking challenges between the cloud and your corporate network. With SkyBridge, you don’t need to be a cloud expert. It automatically configures and launches storage, compute, applications and networking with one click. With SkyBridge, IT can quickly provision Citrix XenDesktop or XenApp in the cloud. Because all the file and application data are in available in the cloud (or in each office), there’s no need to tunnel back to the datacenter to access data.

“Our vision is to let customers use the cloud as an extension of their datacenter, but connecting your corporate infrastructure requires a PhD in cloud. Our technology makes it simple. Companies can configure and run virtual desktops or other applications in the cloud with a single click without any changes. It looks just like a part of their datacenter, but they get the economic and flexibility benefits of the cloud,” said Randy Chou, cofounder and CEO of Panzura. “We are honored that two of our products have been selected and recognized as finalists for the prestigious Best of Citrix Synergy 2015 awards.”

To learn more about how Panzura solved the challenges of connecting corporate infrastructure to the cloud, read our blog post on “Climbing All the Mountains.”

Products considered for the Best of Citrix Synergy 2015 awards are currently available, with the exception of the New Technology category, which includes products that are currently in demonstration. The list, along with information about each vendor is available online at http://www.citrixsynergy.com/activities/award-programs.html.

About Panzura
Panzura makes the cloud seamless by solving the last mile of hybrid cloud. By making the file system transparent across the cloud and corporate datacenters as well as eliminating the barriers of connectivity and authentication with the cloud, Panzura enables applications to run without a single change in the cloud, on-premises, or both.

Panzura transforms the cloud into another corporate datacenter, transparently blending the scale and economics of the cloud with the performance and flexibility of the corporate datacenter.
