3-in-1 Solution Brings Enterprise-Grade Backup, Disaster Recovery, and Archiving Technology to SMEs and Distributed Organizations Starting at $225/month

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – October 22, 2012 — / — today announced it is redefining traditional hybrid cloud backup with its unique, appliance-free approach featuring Smart Cloud and new Lean Local Copy technology.’s Smart Cloud, which integrates the functionality of backup, snapshot and replication technology, abolishes the need for a local appliance. Smart Cloud, together with the new Lean Local Copy feature, advances the hybrid cloud model to deliver fast, reliable data backup and recovery at a fraction of the cost of backup alone. delivers enterprise-grade 3-in-1 backup, disaster recovery and archiving. Because the SaaS-based solution eliminates the cost and management complexities associated with appliance hardware, it is particularly attractive to small/medium businesses, enterprises with distributed office locations and managed service providers (MSPs). Remote offices and MSPs are no longer required to purchase and manage multiple appliances across distributed locations, and any size business can now enjoy enterprise-grade data protection at an affordable price.

Unlike the “dumb cloud” of first generation hybrid cloud backup,’s solution was architected from the ground up with integrated backup, snapshot and replication technology built into its Smart Cloud and its lightweight agents. This removes the need for appliances altogether, and reduces local storage footprint. As a result, offsite backup and recovery is significantly faster, more efficient and much simpler to deploy and manage.

With the introduction of Lean Local Copy, builds on its strategy of innovating a next generation hybrid cloud backup model. Lean Local Copy enables companies to store the most recent copy of large files within their local storage environment so that critical data is easily and quickly accessible when needed. Because the intelligence of backup, snapshot and replication resides in the Smart Cloud, customers can restore and recover their data from either the cloud or their local network copy with equal ease, and without third party hardware or software. Companies benefit from a full range of functionality that would only be achieved otherwise by investing in disparate products for local, offsite, archiving and disaster recovery.

A second new feature, flexible API Scripting, extends’s plug-in architecture to accommodate extra functionality or applications as required by companies. The scripting feature enables enterprises or MSPs to deliver added value to customers in specialized environments, such as healthcare or the legal industry, with the ability to customize the solution to meet market-specific requirements.

“Data protection is traditionally comprised of disparate products from different vendors, which can easily add up in capital and operational costs,” said Deni Conor, founding analyst for Storage Strategies NOW. “Through its unique backup, snapshot and replication architecture, has found an elegant way to deliver all-in-one data protection to companies without requiring them to pay the exorbitant prices associated with enterprise data recovery. is clearly addressing the market’s need for more comprehensive, yet affordable data recovery.”

“When we discovered Zetta.DataProtect it was the highest value offering by a wide margin. Not only was the solution affordable, but it included multiple enterprise-class capabilities that competitors could not touch. Comparable vendors wanted outrageous service fees for service levels that were far below,” said Andy Abadia, network administrator, TEECOM. “We replaced our disk-based backup system with, moving as much as 3TB of storage to DataProtect. As a designer of technology infrastructure for the most advanced buildings in the world, timeliness is critical. has provided the speed and rock-solid reliability we need to ensure our information is online when we need it. It’s been the ideal solution for us.”

Our visionary approach enables instant recovery when required, removes the limitations of third-party appliances and single points of failure, and reduces the huge costs associated with today’s hybrid ‘dumb’ cloud.”
