Cayen Systems Selects TwinStrata CloudArrayÂ® for Superior Disaster Recovery
NATICK, Mass. and MILWAUKEE, Sept. 6, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– TwinStrata, Inc., the leading innovator of cloud-based data storage, backup and disaster recovery solutions, today announced that Cayen Systems, the nation’s leading developer of online data management software for educators and nonprofit organizations, has selected CloudArrayÂ® to provide a seamless extension to cloud storage.
The Cayen Systems IT infrastructure comprises hundreds of Microsoft SQL databases and web services relied on by its customers. Understanding that the workload of the environment required an infrastructure that would scale in performance, capacity, reliability, and availability, Cayen Systems conducted an extensive evaluation and decided to create a virtualized environment built on an iSCSI Storage Area Network that could provide remote disaster recovery services.
“It was imperative to integrate new backup and data protection services into our virtualized environment, and we chose TwinStrata to extend our Dell EqualLogic solution to the cloud for offsite backup and site-level disaster recovery,” said Janessa Huber, general manager at Cayen Systems, LLC. “CloudArray integrated with our new Dell EqualLogic environment so seamlessly that we were able to begin sending secure, encrypted backups to the cloud in less than 30 minutes and achieve continuous data protection with zero impact to our environment.”
Just as important as quick setup and seamless integration with its existing storage infrastructure were the cost savings. The combination of using de-duplication technology with CloudArray’s compression enabled Cayen Systems to shrink its backup footprint by 50%.
Available in both virtual and physical appliance configurations, TwinStrata CloudArray enables customers to frictionlessly expand their storage capacity without limits into the cloud and escape the maintenance costs and data center overhead associated with traditional data storage and tape backups. CloudArray integrates with the most popular backup and archiving solutions and cloud storage providers . Other features such as dynamic caching, in-flight/at-rest data encryption, de-duplication, bandwidth optimization, in-cloud snapshots, high availability and ability to access restored data from anywhere make it easy for businesses to deploy and use.
“Our IT staff, once previously stretched from data restore requests, is now able to satisfy these requests with the click of a button,” added Huber. “We sleep better at night knowing it takes only a few mouse clicks to restore an entire data center to another facility should we ever be faced with a disaster scenario.”
CloudArray appliances are available from TwinStrata with software appliances available for immediate free download at http://www.twinstrata.com . For more information, please visit www.twinstrata.com/cloudarray , email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 508-651-0199.
