TORONTO – January 25, 2022 — / / — Asigra Inc., a leader in cyber-secure backup and recovery, today announced top executive appointments to the company’s senior management team as the ransomware threat to backup data takes center stage in 2022.

Moving the company into the new year are industry veterans Eric Simmons, CEO; Val Silva, CTO; Pete Nourse, Chief Revenue Officer/Chief Marketing Officer; and Chris Gilkes, VP of Worldwide Sales.

The new team reflects the beginning of a new chapter for Asigra by adding significant experience in key areas to address growth objectives and the evolving cybersecurity landscape.

“Ransomware is resulting in revenue and data loss, compromised data, reputational damage, significant operational disruption and more,” said Zachary Ginsburg, Research Director for the Gartner Audit and Risk practice. “Regardless of their size or revenue, organizations should assume they will be targeted with ransomware, and they should examine their prevention, detection, mitigation, response and recovery measures.”[1]

Taking on this challenge head-on is Eric Simmons, Asigra’s new CEO. Eric brings more than two decades of strategic enterprise IT experience to the company and is making it his mission to elevate the company’s position in secure backup and recovery as businesses defend against the reach of ransomware into backup data. Prior to Asigra, he held the post of Chief Strategy Officer for IMC, the parent company of artificial intelligence/analytics provider Scaled Insights, where he refined the software vendor’s strategic direction, resulting in a stronger market presence and increased revenues. Before that, he was CEO of Altum Health, a division of the University Health Network where he developed a 5-year strategic plan and diversification strategy that led the organization to focus on timely execution of strategic priorities. Simmons has also held senior executive positions at Dell, Rogers Communications, Canadian Tire and other leading organizations going back to 1996. Company founder and former CEO of Asigra, David Farajun, moves to Chairman of the Board.

Spearheading platform development is Val Silva, the company’s newly announced CTO. With three decades of engineering and software development expertise, Val is setting the company’s sights on advancing its core value to the user and enhancing customer experience metrics in terms of usability, interoperability, scalability and next-generation security to ensure exceptional resilience to malicious cyberattacks. Prior to Asigra, Val was CTO of IMC, an established artificial intelligence company which won numerous awards including “Best New AI Startup” in the 2018 Global AI Awards. Val has a deep knowledge of computer science and development coupled with an understanding of how to organize people to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Managing revenue growth and marketing for Asigra is Pete Nourse who holds the position of CRO/CMO for the company. Pete will be centered on amplifying awareness for the company and its multi-layered proactive anti-malware backup and recovery platform in support of enterprises and the company’s IT channel. Prior to Asigra, he was CMO for Veriato, a world-class AI-based security software provider where he grew the company’s market position over a three-year period. Before Veriato, he was director of market strategy for Bitdefender, a leading cybersecurity vendor and director of marketing for nCipher where he defined target markets, developed positioning, and played a critical role in market development.

Leading international sales operations for Asigra is Chris Gilkes who joins the company as Vice President of Worldwide Sales. Chris is an experienced technology sales executive and is responsible for sales strategy and execution at Asigra. Based in London, he has spent much of his career delivering technology solutions across public and private sector organizations. Prior to Asigra, he managed EMEA sales and operations at Veriato, and was part of the senior management team at Canon, focusing on cybersecurity. Additionally, he worked at Blackthorn Technologies where he worked with many high-profile commercial and government organizations. With Chris’ extensive experience in technology sales management, business development and channel expansion, he will play a critical role in the company’s accelerated growth strategy.

“Ransomware has come a long way since its emergence and it now attacks data backups which had previously been the last line of defense,” said Eric Simmons, CEO, Asigra. “With a highly skilled team of senior executives and software engineers wielding the most secure backup platform on the market, we are pleased to embark on this new journey as we advance our technological excellence and global presence.”

The #1 Kubernetes backup leader quadruples staff size, announces platform innovations and establishes new Go-To-Market partnerships to serve the growing need for Kubernetes backup, disaster recovery and mobility

COLUMBUS, Ohio – January 25, 2022 — / / — Kasten by Veeam®, the market leader for Kubernetes backup, disaster recovery and mobility, today announced its track record for rapid growth continued in fiscal 2021, the first full year of results posted since Kasten was acquired by Veeam.

Kasten by Veeam reported a 900% year-over-year (YoY) increase in bookings for 2021 and quadrupled the size of its staff in 2021 to serve the rising demand for simple and secure protection for Kubernetes deployments.

“Kasten by Veeam is entering 2022 stronger than ever,” said Andy Langsam, senior vice president of Kasten by Veeam. “As Kubernetes adoption dramatically accelerates, customer demand for backup and disaster recovery tools continues to grow. We are building our team, strengthening our community efforts, solidifying partnerships and investing in product enhancements to address the data management needs of modern enterprises that rely on technologies that support a strong Kubernetes ecosystem.”

Kubernetes has emerged as the de facto standard for orchestrating containers in edge environments driven by applications like video streaming and AI. Its use in production has increased by 300% since 2016, according to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Adoption of Kasten K10, the company’s platform for Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, accelerated over the past year — increasing by a factor of 10 in 2021.

Kasten currently protects millions of containers in production and can scale to protect massive multi-cluster deployments with multiple hundreds of nodes in enterprise environments. The company continues to see significant interest in container-specific data management solutions from high-performance enterprise segments, including banking and the financial sector, 5G and edge computing.

“Containers have become pervasive in production infrastructure, often running mission-critical applications — that’s why these environments must be protected with resilience in mind. Our research shows that there is a data protection disconnect, often leaving container infrastructure, and the business, potentially exposed,” said Christophe Bertrand, Senior Analyst at ESG. “That’s why we believe that the Kasten by Veeam solution is a critical component organizations should deploy to deliver on their data protection and business service levels. With support from Veeam, we expect Kasten to continue building momentum as they further extend their solution roadmap.”

Kasten by Veeam released two major commercial updates to its K10 platform in 2021, as well as other capabilities and features that accommodate multi-tenant cloud environments, automate application migrations, and deliver scalable backup, disaster recovery and application mobility across enterprise Kubernetes deployments. These updates included V4.0, which delivered the industry’s first Kubernetes-native protection capabilities focused on ransomware attacks. A second update, V4.5, delivered an improved out-of-the-box experience, expanded the platform’s edge capabilities and broadened the firm’s ecosystem support for data services and partner technologies.

Kasten by Veeam continued to expand its partner ecosystem and add integrations to key technology platforms throughout the past 12 months. Kasten by Veeam announced new Go-To-Market partnerships with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Red Hat, IBM Cloud and Azure during 2021. Kasten K10 is now also available in AWS Marketplace for Containers Anywhere and the Red Hat Marketplace.

The company announced investments in Kubernetes education and community during 2021. It contributed a new open source project called Kubestr that enables developers and operators to evaluate Kubernetes cluster storage configurations and performance. Kasten by Veeam also launched the Kasten Kubernetes Learning Series, a free educational program designed to improve the Kubernetes skill sets of all levels of practitioners, including novices, developers, operations and Kubernetes administrators. Close to 10,000 users leveraged this unique, hands-on lab-based program within the first quarter of its launch in Q4’21.

Partnership Extends Preeminent IMSCAD Support and Deployment of Intensive Applications for VDI With the No. 1 Solution for File Sharing and Collaboration in the AEC Industry

SAN JOSE, Calif. — January 25, 2022 — / / — Panzura and IMSCAD have announced a partnership to accelerate deployment of graphical applications for VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) in the cloud including intensive CAD and 3D applications. The partnership combines IMSCAD’s world-class support and delivery expertise for deploying graphical desktops and workflows in the cloud with the hybrid-work enabling capabilities of the Panzura CloudFS global file system. With hundreds of these solutions deployed across the U.K., U.S., Europe, the Middle East, and around the world, IMSCAD and Panzura are uniquely able to eliminate the IT hassles and costs associated with high-performance cloud-based VDI solutions and in-house infrastructure.

IMSCAD will now offer the award-winning global file system Panzura CloudFS as a core file collaboration and data resiliency solution for customers. Coming in at just one-third of the total cost of ownership of legacy storage infrastructure, the Panzura solution allows distributed teams to simultaneously and efficiently work on multiple projects, assignments and applications with a superior graphics experience, and with workstation-comparable performance even across the WAN. VDI solutions such as 3D and CAD software, using either Citrix or VMware and Nvidia vGPU and GPUs, will be optimized using the Panzura global file system to move, manage, access and protect data files and workloads in the hybrid multi-cloud.

IMSCAD is the preeminent leader in VDI application deployment, providing end-to-end support and services for users of 3D and CAD applications virtualized on any platform, as well as for IT channel partners. With unrivaled knowledge in the field of desktop and application virtualization, IMSCAD is at the forefront of developing Citrix, VMware and Nvidia versions of software for the AEC, product design, manufacturing, civil infrastructure, and natural resources industries. Panzura CloudFS is the de facto choice in the AEC industry, and is considered the standard for managing, accessing and storing data in these environments.

IMSCAD specialists will guide customers through the entire processes–from consulting, project management, installation, optimization, hosting, user support and troubleshooting, and performance and scalability testing–to ensure virtualized Panzura CloudFS hybrid-working solutions and strategies deliver on productivity and business continuity objectives, while also achieving performance at scale.

“Our customers need flexible solutions that give their workforce exceptional mobility and performance. We have successfully deployed more virtualized CAD solutions than anyone else in the world, and our technology partnership with Panzura will ensure that our customers’ remote access virtualization projects–even those running multiple applications, add-ons and plug-ins–will achieve the real and lasting efficiency, productivity and economics of the cloud,” said Adam Jull, founder and chief executive officer at IMSCAD.

Panzura CloudFS replaces legacy storage with a single, unified file system that works across any hybrid-cloud or on-premises IT configuration. It solves the specific distributed workforce challenges of engineering, construction, manufacturing and design firms to collaborate using applications like Revit, AutoCAD and Civil 3D by consolidating unstructured data storage, archive, backup, and disaster recovery in the cloud. Given the infrastructure demands for traditional NAS to accommodate files and backups for firms that rely on VDI solutions, switching to Panzura and cloud storage results in savings of up to 70% or more.

“We’ve brought together the immeasurable expertise of IMSCAD and the technological power of Panzura so AEC and design-intensive firms can overcome the limits of hardware latency and its integration with graphics-demanding 3D and CAD software to dramatically improve productivity and speed up project delivery,” said Brian Brogan, global sales channels vice president at Panzura. “Allowing customers to run the applications of their choice, is at the heart of our technology partnership with IMSCAD.”

The ongoing shift to hybrid workforce models has also seen a massive uptick in threats to mission-critical applications and data from ransomware and other malware variants. IMSCAD recently launched a disaster recovery solution that offers cost-effective back up and delivers structured redundancy measures to virtual desktops and workstations. The solution uses Microsoft Azure on a “pay-as-you-use-it” basis, so customers pay only for virtual desktops in the event of an incident, and recurring expenditures are limited to infrastructure and storage. File access remains always-on even if a desktop is dormant, ready to burst and scale as required in the event of an outage.

Panzura expands IMSCAD disaster recovery capabilities by extending protection all the way to the data and files. Panzura CloudFS is built on an immutable, undefeated data architecture that withstands any and all attempts to encrypt data with malware. Since files held in the system are immune from damage or alteration, they can be restored in minutes without ever paying ransoms or exposing sensitive information. Coupled with the resiliency of cloud storage itself, the combined durability derived from IMSCAD disaster recovery and Panzura CloudFS, shields VDI applications and data from the cloud to the edge, minimizing disruption and keeping costs low.

Tinton Falls, N.J. – January 25, 2022 — / / — Commvault [NASDAQ: CVLT] today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2021.

“The team executed well across the board, delivering another record quarter,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, President and CEO. “Increasingly, customers are turning to us because we provide one platform for software and SaaS offerings to address a multitude of data management needs. This is fueling our growth and accelerating our journey to a cloud-first recurring revenue model.”

Total revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $202.4 million, an increase of 8% year over year.  Total recurring revenue was $164.4 million, representing 81% of total revenue.

Annualized recurring revenue (ARR), which is the annualized value of all active Commvault recurring revenue streams at the end of the reporting period, was $561.2 million as of December 31, 2021, up 11% from December 31, 2020.

Software and products revenue was $98.6 million, an increase of 11% year over year.  The year over year increase in software and products revenue was driven by a 24% increase in larger deals (deals greater than $0.1 million in software and products revenue).

Larger deal revenue (deals with greater than $0.1 million and software and products revenue) represented 76% of our software and products revenue in the three months ended December 31, 2021.  The number of larger deal revenue transactions increased 20% year over year to 225 deals for the three months ended December 31, 2021. The average dollar amount of larger deal revenue transactions was approximately $332,000.

Services revenue in the quarter was $103.8 million, an increase of 4% year over year.  The increase in services revenue was driven primarily by the increase in Metallic software as a service revenue.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations (EBIT) was $12.4 million for the third quarter compared to $2.7 million in the prior year.  Non-GAAP EBIT was $43.1 million in the quarter compared to $37.3 million in the prior year.

Operating cash flow totaled $26.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $17.0 million in the prior year quarter.  Total cash and short-term investments were $233.7 million as of December 31, 2021 compared to $397.2 million as of March 31, 2021.

During the third quarter of fiscal 2022, Commvault repurchased approximately 1.3 million shares of its common stock totaling $85.3 million at an average price of approximately $65.72 per share.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in Financial Statement Table IV included in this press release. (Download Financial Tables — )

An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Commvault has provided in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income from operations margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and annualized recurring revenue (ARR).  This financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Commvault uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions.  In addition, Commvault believes these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating Commvault’s ongoing operational performance.  Commvault believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Commvault’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to the investment community.  Commvault has also provided software and products, services and total revenues on a constant currency basis. Commvault analyzes revenue growth on a constant currency basis in order to provide a comparable framework for assessing how the business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

All of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided in Table IV included in this press release. (Download Financial Tables — )

Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  These non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges and additional Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) and related payroll tax expense incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards as well as restructuring costs.  Commvault has also excluded certain costs related to key employees of Hedvig, the gain on the sale of its equity method investment in Laitek, Inc. and, for fiscal year 2021, the noncash amortization of intangible assets and the impairment of the intangible assets from its non-GAAP results. These expenses are further discussed in Table IV.  Commvault believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful metrics for management and investors because they compare Commvault’s core operating results over multiple periods.  When evaluating the performance of Commvault’s operating results and developing short- and long-term plans, Commvault does not consider such expenses.

Although noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses are necessary to attract and retain employees, Commvault places its primary emphasis on stockholder dilution as compared to the accounting charges related to such equity compensation plans.  Commvault believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude noncash stock-based compensation expense and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred on stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock awards allow investors to make meaningful comparisons between Commvault’s operating results and those of other companies.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  The most significant limitation is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain operating costs, primarily related to noncash stock-based compensation, which is of a recurring nature.  Noncash stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in Commvault’s operating results.  In addition, noncash stock-based compensation is an important part of Commvault’s employees’ compensation and can have a significant impact on their performance.  Lastly, the components that Commvault excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP financial measures.

Due to the limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures, Commvault’s management assists investors by providing a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Further, Commvault’s management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS). In addition to the adjustments discussed in non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS incorporates a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 27%.

Commvault anticipates that in any given period its non-GAAP tax rate may be either higher or lower than the GAAP tax rate as evidenced by historical fluctuations. The GAAP tax rates in recent fiscal years were not meaningful percentages due to the dollar amount of GAAP pre-tax income.  For the same reason as the GAAP tax rates, the estimated cash tax rates in recent fiscal years are not meaningful percentages. Commvault defines its cash tax rate as the total amount of cash income taxes payable for the fiscal year divided by consolidated GAAP pre-tax income. Over time, Commvault believes its GAAP and cash tax rates will align.

Commvault considers non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics for Commvault management and its investors for the same basic reasons that Commvault uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. In addition, the same limitations as well as management actions to compensate for such limitations described above also apply to Commvault’s use of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS.

ESG review finds ExaGrid provides a 3X improvement in data deduplication and easy management with Commvault

Marlborough, Mass. – January 24, 2022 — / / — ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that a newly published ESG technical review, ExaGrid with Commvault: Maximum Deduplication Savings with Easy Management authored by Kerry Dolan, Sr. IT Validation Analyst and Craig Ledo, IT Validation Analyst, documents ESG’s validation of ExaGrid testing that demonstrated both the capacity savings and ease of use available from a combined ExaGrid and Commvault backup solution. The data deduplication from Commvault can remain turned on and ExaGrid furthers the Commvault deduplication by a factor of 3:1.

ESG Review:

From the ESG report:
“It is well known that both ExaGrid and Commvault offer backup solutions that are easy to use and can help you to store data more efficiently with deduplication. What may be less well known is that a combined ExaGrid and Commvault solution can achieve even greater deduplication: up to 20:1 in many cases. A 20x reduction in backup storage costs can be a significant boost to any budget.

ESG validated that:

  • The combined ExaGrid/Commvault solution reduced a 123TB backup data set that included 15 days of file data, VMware VMs, and SQL database backups down to 8.66TB, a 14:1 reduction, in a realistic yet intentionally conservative test environment.
  • Deploying and managing the combined solution was simple, intuitive, and fast.”

ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage requires close integration between the backup software and the backup storage. Together, Commvault and ExaGrid provide a cost-effective backup solution that scales to meet the needs of demanding enterprise environments. ExaGrid improves the storage economics of Commvault environments by working with Commvault deduplication on to provide up to 20:1 reduction in storage consumption – a 3X storage savings over using Commvault deduplication alone. This combination dramatically lowers the cost of onsite and offsite backup storage.

Commvault deduplicated data can be sent to ExaGrid appliances for further deduplication. ExaGrid takes the average 5:1 Commvault deduplication ratio up to 15:1 which reduces the storage footprint by 300%. This greatly reduces the cost of the backup storage while allowing no change to the current Commvault configuration since the Commvault deduplication can remain on. In this example, ExaGrid can replicate the 15:1 deduplicated data to a second site for offsite long-term retention and disaster recovery. The additional deduplication saves WAN bandwidth in addition to saving storage at both sites.

“ExaGrid continues to innovate to optimize integration with the backup applications we support, providing our customers with unique benefits for the backup applications that they use. We have been able to further deduplicate Commvault’s deduped data for some time now to maximize storage savings, and this new report highlights how well this actually works, all without requiring current Commvault users to make changes to their configuration,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid. “We hope that current Commvault users and those who are planning to use Commvault will take a look at this report and consider the storage savings that ExaGrid can bring to their backup environment. Separately, ExaGrid can greatly improve Commvault backup and restore performance if Commvault deduplication is turned off. In this case, ExaGrid provides the same storage savings but with greatly improved backup and restore performance. ExaGrid gives Commvault customers the option to keep Commvault deduplication turned on, or for improved performance, turned off.”

About ExaGrid
ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a unique disk-cache Landing Zone, long-term retention repository, and scale-out architecture. ExaGrid’s Landing Zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. The retention repository offers the lowest cost for long-term retention. ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture includes full appliances and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid offers the only two-tiered backup storage approach with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable objects to recover from ransomware attacks.

— Simple, flexible, and reliable capabilities to protect evolving data workloads

— Provides a path to improved productivity, profitability, and customer success for channel partners

Integration of Cloudian Object Storage and WekaFS™ Enables Rapid Processing of Analytical Workloads and Saves 1/3 in Costs Over Traditional Storage Systems

SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 20, 2022 — / / — Cloudian® today announced the integration of its HyperStore® object storage with the WEKA Data Platform for AI, providing high-performance, exabyte-scalable private cloud storage for processing iterative analytical workloads. The combined solution unifies and simplifies the data pipeline for performance-intensive workloads and accelerated DataOps, all easily managed under a single namespace. In addition, the new solution reduces the storage TCO associated with data analytics by a third, compared to traditional storage systems.

Advanced Analytics Workloads Create Data Storage Challenges
Organizations are consuming and creating more data than ever before, and many are applying AI, machine learning (ML) and other advanced analytics on these large data sets to make better decisions in real-time and unlock new revenue streams. These analytics workloads create and use massive data sets that pose significant storage challenges, most importantly the ability to manage the data growth and enable users to extract timely insights from that data. Traditional storage systems simply can’t handle the processing needs or the scalability required for iterative analytics workloads and introduce bottlenecks to productivity and data-driven decision making.

Cloudian-WEKA Next Generation Storage Platform
Together, Cloudian and WEKA enable organizations to overcome the challenges of accelerating and scaling their data pipelines while lowering data analytics storage costs. WEKA’s data platform, built on WekaFS, addresses the storage challenges posed by today’s enterprise AI workloads and other high-performance applications running on-premises, in the cloud or bursting between platforms. The joint solution offers the simplicity of NAS, the performance of SAN or DAS and the scale of object storage, along with accelerating every stage of the data pipeline from data ingestion to cleansing to modeled results.

Integrated through WEKA’s tiering function, Cloudian’s enterprise-grade, software-defined object storage provides the following key benefits:

  • High Performance Run concurrent workloads while eliminating compute cluster bottlenecks and reducing processing times.
  • Exabyte Scalability Grow deployments on demand, from terabytes to an exabyte without disruption, achieving the flexibility and elasticity of the public cloud within a private data center or hybrid cloud model.
  • Enterprise-grade Security Protect data with encryption in flight and at rest, integrated firewall, RBAC/IAM and SAML access controls, and certification with the most rigorous regulatory requirements, such as Common Criteria, FIPS and SEC Rule 17a-4(f).
  • Resiliency Achieve high data durability with the option to protect and distribute data using replication or erasure coding, thereby eliminating the need for a separate data backup process.
  • Multi-tenancy Provision multiple users on shared infrastructure without compromising security.
  • Cost-effective Save on storage costs, as the solution runs on standard x86 hardware with local NVMe SSDs.

“As organizations increasingly employ AI, ML and other advanced analytics to extract greater value from their data, they need a modern storage platform that enables fast, easy data processing and management,” said Jonathan Martin, president, WEKA. “The combination of the WEKA Data Platform and Cloudian object storage provides an ideal solution that can seamlessly and cost-effectively scale to meet growing demands.”

“When it comes to supporting advanced analytics applications, users shouldn’t have to make tradeoffs between storage performance and capacity,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer, Cloudian. “By eliminating any need to compromise, the integration of our HyperStore software with the WEKA Data Platform gives customers a storage foundation that enables them to fully leverage these applications so they can gain new insights from their data and drive greater business and operational success.”

The new solution is available today. For more information, visit

11:11 Systems is focused on significantly simplifying our customers’ approach to cloud, security and connectivity to drive greater security, innovation, and responsiveness and adding iland and Green Cloud as core ingredient platforms substantively advances this mission.”

Justin Giardina, CTO, iland:
“Joining 11:11 Systems, which now includes Green Cloud, will open up the doors of innovation even wider with new opportunities to expand services across the iland platform, which will further enhance our customers’ ability to manage and monitor their hybrid environments. We will have the unprecedented opportunity to offer our customers choice in their infrastructure services, while also untangling them from the overwhelming intricacies that too often accompany infrastructure management.”

Dante Orsini, SVP, Business Development, iland:
“We are thrilled to join 11:11 Systems and further solidify our position as a market-leading provider of infrastructure services. This acquisition opens up new opportunities for our global channel partners and bolsters our expertise, bench of satisfied customers, and solution offerings with our core technology partners including VMware, Veeam, Zerto, and HPE as well as other market leaders. Merging with 11:11 Systems will make iland a one-stop-shop for cloud, security, and connectivity utilizing the market’s most trusted solutions.”

Effective immediately, Justin Giardina, CTO of iland, is appointed Chief Technology Innovation Officer; Dante Orsini is promoted to Chief Strategy Officer; Jennifer Brenner will remain Chief Marketing Officer.

New Dell services help organizations manage, store and protect data across multiple cloud platforms. This allows organizations to bring the simplicity and agility of public cloud platforms to the location of their choice with APEX services—achieving multi-cloud by design not by default.

“As a global organization with facilities spread across over 80 countries, the ability to have access to data on our over 700,000 product variations is essential to ensuring we meet our customers where they are,” said Michael Loggins, global vice president of IT at SMC Corporation. “Central to our strategy is creating an IT infrastructure that connects data in public clouds with our traditional data centers and taking full advantage of what’s happening at the edge.

Building on partnerships with key cloud vendors including Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM/Red Hat and VMware to offer a broad range of DevOps-ready platforms, Dell is adding increased support for Kubernetes including:

  • Amazon EKS Anywhere on PowerFlex and PowerStore, allowing organizations to run their Kubernetes orchestration across public or on-premises clouds.
  • SUSE Rancher on VxRail, providing multi-cluster, multi-cloud Kubernetes management and giving customers the flexibility to choose their cloud orchestration platform.

San Luis Clinic, a maternity and pediatric clinic in Columbia, improves backup reliability with instant verification functionality provided by NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – January 18, 2022 — / / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that San Luis Clinic has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

San Luis Clinic aims to preserve the lives of women and children by providing high-quality, humanized, and reliable health services. San Luis Clinic has ISO 9000 certification, which allows the clinic to be recognized as one of the best health service providers in the area of Santander, Columbia. Nearly 11,700 children have been born at the San Luis Clinic.

The organization has three hosts with a total of 50 virtual machines. The entire IT environment is replicated to a secondary site with a two-host cluster. The main data consists of patient records, clinic history, and diagnostic images. There are also internal administrative processes, including files, network services, security services, and invoicing services. All of the clinic’s applications amount to nearly 10TB of data. The clinic operates 24/7, so downtime risk must be minimized. According to government regulations, patient data must be stored and archived for 20 years, thus losing this data would be absolutely disastrous for the clinic.

In the past, San Luis Clinic protected its virtual environment with another solution that was flash-based and when VMware stopped supporting that product, the clinic had to quickly look for an alternative. The clinic’s trusted advisor from ITCOL SAS recommended NAKIVO Backup & Replication. The IT team saw a demo and the solution matched all their criteria, so switching to NAKIVO Backup & Replication was an easy decision.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an easy-to-use, comprehensive data protection solution for virtual, physical, cloud, and SaaS environments. The solution includes many industry-leading features, including granular recovery, instant VM recovery, backup to cloud, backup to tape, installation on NAS, and much more. The solution offers a variety of installation options, including deployment as a pre-configured virtual appliance. “Thanks to the user-friendly web interface, the day-to-day management of NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a breeze. We are absolutely satisfied with the solution’s usability and the variety of installation options provided. For now, we installed NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a virtual appliance, but NAS integration could also be interesting in the future,” says German Pinzón, IT Director at San Luis Clinic.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication takes about two hours to back up the entire changes of one full working day in the clinic. We perform backup four times a day for the most critical VMs without any issues, while the other VMs are backed up one time a day every day. What we like most about the VM backup feature is that the functionality simply works, which is awesome. We have experienced no failed backup jobs so far,” says German.

Instant verification provides an automated way to test VM backups and replicas and get proof that those VMs are indeed recoverable. The automated verification of VM backups and replicas is performed in a matter of minutes and helps to protect users from bad backups or replicas that are not recoverable. “Thanks to the instant verification, we reduced the risk of having bad backups and not knowing about them. The functionality saves us time on backup administration as well, in comparison to our previous solution,” says German.

“We use granular recovery and instant VM recovery on a constant basis, as we did not have this functionality with our previous solution. Fast file recovery and full VM recovery is a huge time saver for the IT team, when someone deletes a file or an entire VM gets corrupted. Both features save us time and therefore money every day,” says German.

“With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we stay calm, knowing that our data is always protected. The solution offered us great value in terms of usability, functionality, and pricing. Thanks to instant verification, we reduced the risk of having corrupted backups and improved backup reliability. In terms of backup administration, we saved time as well, because the product is automated and we do not experience any failures. Compared to what we were using previously, we have definitely saved time on backup management and gained peace of mind,” says German.

New Report Recognizes Nasuni’s Ability to Provide Global File Data Access, Automatic Data Protection with Near-Instant Ransomware Recovery, Infinite Scale and Cost Savings to Healthcare Organizations

BOSTON, MA – January 19, 2022 — / / — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage today announced that DCIG has named Nasuni a top five storage solution for healthcare in a new report, “DCIG TOP 5 Storage for Healthcare Solutions.”

Today’s healthcare environments demand data storage solutions that offer ultra-high availability, cross-location collaboration and fast data access to quickly and effectively treat patients. Data protection is paramount, and storage solutions must navigate compliance and data privacy regulations as well. With the rapid growth of medical images, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and organizational file shares, cloud-based file storage solutions provide a compelling way to satisfy all of these requirements.

“Nasuni cleverly combines the best of distributed file storage and cloud object storage to serve users the unlimited on-demand capacity and economics of the cloud with the file performance they expect,” writes Mike Matchett, DCIG consulting analyst and author of the report. “Combined with comprehensive data protection for backup, DR and ransomware, their solution scales to meet the needs of modern healthcare IT for image and file storage.”

Nasuni provides a cloud-native file services platform built on cloud object storage that replaces traditional network attached storage (NAS) and all related file server infrastructure with a secure, simplified and infinitely scalable solution. Healthcare organizations benefit from economical, multi-site primary file storage capacity, fast access over standard file sharing protocols and data protection, all for less than the cost of traditional on-premises file infrastructure.

DCIG named Nasuni as one of its top five healthcare storage solutions for three key capabilities:

  • Cloud-based scaling, capacity and economics – Nasuni partners with the three major hyperscalers to take advantage of their scalability, durability and cost efficiencies. Healthcare organizations leverage the physical, technical and administrative safeguards to securely store all customer file data in AWS, Azure or Google Cloud object storage.
  • Distributed file access with fast edge performance – Nasuni caches a copy of the current working set of files on virtual “edge” machines (VM) that can be deployed on-premises or in a nearby cloud region. All changes to files on each edge VM are regularly stored in cloud object storage, then propagated to all other edge VMs around the globe. As a result, healthcare organizations get the scalability and durability of the cloud, while also enjoying ubiquitous high-speed access to shared files in all locations.
  • Natively integrated backup, DR and ransomware protection – Nasuni has built its UniFS™ file system on cloud object storage, storing all incremental changes as immutable snapshots. As a result, file data can be easily and rapidly restored to any point in time in any edge location in a matter of minutes for nearly effortless recoveries from ransomware, data corruptions or disasters.

“HJF has been undergoing a modernization initiative, upgrading the infrastructure behind the entire organization, and Nasuni has been a critical part of that,” says Marc De Serio, chief technology officer at the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF). “Nasuni is helping HJF reduce and simplify on-premises infrastructure, improve manageability and move from a multiple-data-center methodology to a hybrid cloud approach.”

“Healthcare organizations need to provide easy, fast access to files to their clinicians and staff, and they also need strong protection against ransomware and other threats,” said David Grant, chief commercial officer at Nasuni. “DCIG’s naming of Nasuni as a top five data storage solution for healthcare is a validation of the value we’re providing to hospitals and medical practices around the world, cutting file infrastructure costs while providing the scalability, protection and simplified, centralized management that healthcare IT requires.”

From Multicloud to New Requirements for Disaster Recovery and High Availability Protection – Here Are Some of the Biggest Trends

SAN MATEO, Calif. – January 18, 2022 — / / — SIOS Technology Corp., an industry leader in application high availability and disaster recovery, today announced top technology predictions for 2022.

While some well-established trends, such as the migration of applications and data into the public cloud, will continue in 2022, the ongoing potential for disruption caused by COVID-19 will drive IT to greater expectations for high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR).

Cassius Rhue, VP of Customer Experience, SIOS Technology, predicts the following major trends driven by these expectations:

Multicloud Infrastructures Will Become Mainstream – Despite the added complexity of running different workloads in different clouds, a multicloud model will enable companies to choose cloud offerings that are best suited to their individual application environments, availability needs, and business requirements. Concerns about the ability to meet 99.99% SLAs in the cloud for business-critical applications will prompt companies to implement sophisticated application-aware high availability and disaster recovery solutions.

Enterprise Reliance on Databases and ERP Systems Will Drive Higher Demand for Specialized HA Expertise – Powerful database and ERP systems such as Oracle, SAP S/4HANA and SQL Server have become so business-critical that even brief downtime for these systems is costly. They are running in increasingly complex environments, prompting more and more companies to turn to HA/DR specialists with deep, application-specific experience in implementing uptime protection for these important systems.

More Investment in Disaster Recovery – Climate change and social unrest have moved the need for disaster recovery to the forefront of IT focus. DR planning is no longer factoring in the rare “once in 100 years storm” or “once in a lifetime earthquake.” Companies will spend more on DR in 2022 and look for more flexible deployment options for DR protection, such as replicating on-premises workloads to the cloud and failover clustering across cloud availability zones and regions.

High Availability Protection for Storage will Become Standard – Simple backup of data storage is no longer sufficient. Regardless of whether the storage is NFS, SAN, cloud-native shared storage, or replicated local storage, companies will increase protection levels for their data storage – both on-premises and in the cloud – to include HA/DR protection.

Companies will Reconsider On-Premises Data Centers in Favor of Cloud – Some companies that moved business-critical applications into the public cloud are now considering either a reverse migration or a hybrid-cloud configuration for three main reasons: unpredictable cloud fees; data sovereignty requirements for companies that are subject to regulations that require them to keep data within their company’s geographic borders; and the need for in-house control over IT infrastructures.

Container Complexity Will Limit Adoption for Production Workloads Needing HA/DR – Containers are continuing to make the headlines and are destined to be used in more use cases throughout the IT infrastructure. The benefits of containers are proven in DevOps environments but their complexity, coupled with constraints on IT resources and the complex architecture of many applications, databases, and ERP systems will limit their adoption in production environments. Companies will continue to run complex applications, databases, and ERPs in on-premises and cloud environments where they can ensure HA/DR protection.

Swarm protects Veeam backups and replicas from ransomware attacks, hardware failures, and accidental deletions across a wide range of standard hardware to mitigate the impact of cyberthreats and supply chain issues

READING, UK – January 18, 2022 — / / — Today DataCore Software, the largest independent vendor of Software-Defined Storage solutions, announced that its DataCore Swarm object storage has qualified as a “Veeam Ready-Object” and “Veeam Ready – Object with Immutability” solution by Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection. In an era of almost constant security intrusions, organisations can cost-effectively safeguard their short- and long-term backups by deploying Swarm as the scalable capacity tier for Veeam Backup & Replication®, or Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365. The combined solution enables more frequent backups with less effort at a lower cost, for rapid recovery.

Backup solutions have become the last line of defense from a myriad of scenarios that involve risk of data loss or need for critical data recovery. Each organisation must evaluate how often to back up, and how many backups to retain, given the cost of storing those copies so they can be quickly restored in an emergency. Cloud and tape storage may seem attractive at first but have shortcomings. Cloud storage can lead to surprisingly high monthly bills that compound yearly, while the time to restore critical data may be elongated by internet delays. Low-cost tape-based alternatives can be difficult to manage, and corrupted backups may go undetected and silently stored in tape media. For these reasons, Swarm provides a responsive, on-premises object storage solution at an appealing price point to complement the primary backup layer.

In addition to preventing tampering through immutability, Swarm offers automated self-healing, erasure-coding, and n-way replicas over high-speed networks to provide backup integrity and fast restores. Swarm can be installed on any combination of server hardware using any mix of drive densities and models, enabling organisations to sidestep supply chain constraints. Larger capacity drives may be substituted later within the same chassis to seamlessly increase space within the same data center footprint, leaving Swarm to automatically redistribute the data and balance the load.

For over a decade, leading organisations including the Department of Defense, BT, and Argonne National Laboratory have relied on Swarm to provide scalable data protection. With immutability and continuous protection, Swarm’s patented architecture helps organisations eliminate unnecessary costs and manual management, and protect from malicious attacks, procedural mistakes, and hardware failures.

“Incorrect backup policies and decisions around data storage can quickly chew up an organisation’s data protection budget, waste resources, and unintentionally expose new vulnerabilities,” said Abhijit Dey, Chief Product Officer of DataCore. “Our Swarm object storage product has been rigorously tested and verified as a Veeam Ready offering. This key component of our Data Protection solution enables organizations to cost-effectively secure their backups and recover rapidly at scale, while shielding critical data from cyberthreats.”

About DataCore
DataCore Software delivers the industry’s most flexible, intelligent, and powerful software-defined storage solutions for block, file and object storage, helping more than 10,000 customers worldwide modernize how they store, protect, and access data. The company’s comprehensive product suite, intellectual property portfolio, and its unrivaled experience in storage virtualization and advanced data services, position DataCore as the authority on software-defined storage.

TEANECK, NJ – January 18, 2022 — / / — Data Dynamics, the Unified Unstructured Data Management platform leader, announced today that one of its products, ControlX, has been named as a finalist in TechTarget’s Enterprise Data Storage 2021 Products of the Year. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Storage Magazine and SearchStorage Products of the Year contest, 39 finalists were selected for their products in backup, cloud, disk, hyper-converged, and management.

In our fast-paced digital world, individuals, governments, and businesses alike share, re-share, grant, or are granted access to data. Intentionally or not, data sharing sometimes bypasses security and governance protocols, exposing data breaches to rogue employees or agents. ControlX allows data governance and security teams to take actions on their files in existing data lakes and unstructured data stores.

Helen Johnson, CTO at Data Dynamics states, “Blockchain technology at the core of ControlX creates a digital chain of custody for files with critical business information by recording every time the file is accessed or modified. ControlX is the industry’s first and only mechanism for creating immutable audit and compliance logs, which will lead to data democratization and secure sharing of file data outside the organization. ControlX’s file control operations can be integrated into enterprises’ existing environment service management, data management, and governance workflow automation via RESTful APIs.”

Piyush Mehta, Founder, and CEO, Data Dynamics, said, “ControlX provides a mechanism for security and data management personnel to proactively manage data security.” Piyush further adds, “Competitive products manage data at a file system level, requiring coordination between different enterprise systems and organizations without clarity about the business context and decision-making. These issues mean that the competition still leaves data security as a time, labor, and project-intensive activity. That’s not the case with ControlX, which provides APIs that integrate as part of existing workflows to help organizations proactively mitigate risk, provide scalable security remediation, and generate immutable reports for validation.”

About Data Dynamics
Data Dynamics is the leader in data democratization by providing data Analytics, Mobility, Security, and Compliance solutions to navigate the data landscape of the digital future. The insight, intelligence, and automation leveraging the platform drive risk mitigation, enhanced data security, secure sharing of sensitive data, and storage optimization all from a single platform.
