New Service Assures Disaster Recovery to the Cloud
MCLEAN, VA, August 13, 2012 –/BackupReview.info/ — VirtualSharp Software, the leading provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, today announced that Host Ventura, a leading European specialist in Dedicated Managed Hosting, has based its RaaS platform on VirtualSharp’s ReliableDR so that companies can protect their vital applications and guarantee recovery.
“A new generation of recovery-in-the-cloud offerings has the potential to improve the frequency with which provider customers can conduct live testing, and eliminate recovery configuration server and storage capital cost. To remain competitive, Disaster Recovery providers are continuously improving remote access to their data centers, which enables in-house recovery management teams to orchestrate live exercises remotely, without having to travel,” wrote John Morency, research vice president at Gartner, Inc. in “Hype Cycle for Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery Management, 2012″ (Research Paper G00233826).
“We see an increasing need for Hosted Disaster Recovery services in the market, mainly for SMBs and mid-market companies,” said Tom Arentsen, Technical Director at Host Ventura and a VMware Certified Design Expert, the highest certification available from VMware. “These companies do not have the capabilities of owning a secondary data center, but have a heavily virtualized infrastructure running their critical applications whose continuity of services has to be assured with very tight SLAs, just like bigger companies.”
Using VirtualSharp’s ReliableDR, Host Ventura can now offer companies a safe infrastructure within their data centers and ensure a fully automated Disaster Recovery process from the infrastructure components all the way up to the application stack. As ReliableDR constantly tests and measures against the SLAs defined, not only will applications be brought back up successfully by Host Ventura’s service, but they will also fully meet the contractual agreements with their customers.
Arentsen continued: “Providing end-to-end visibility and giving our customers the tools and reporting capabilities to measure our service further strengthens our relationship and creates confidence.”
The VirtualSharp solution allows Host Ventura to enforce RPOs and predict RTOs at the application level and gives customers continuous insight in the status of Disaster Recovery readiness of their applications via a web portal without the need to install anything on their premises.
“We are very pleased that Host Ventura has chosen VirtualSharp to build and deliver their cutting edge RaaS solution,” said Michael Hillewaert, VP of International Sales at VirtualSharp Software. “This new service for smaller and medium size businesses shows the importance of Disaster Recovery Assurance beyond the traditional limited capabilities across all customer sizes.”
