Microsoft customers worldwide can now back up cross-platform and multi-hypervisor business data to Windows Azure

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – January 22, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — EVault, Inc., a Seagate company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced EVault® Backup Services for Windows Azure. Building on the successful relationship between Microsoft Corp. and EVault, the new service extends data protection to cross-platform server data, operating systems, applications, and databases while delivering the flexibility, scalability, economy, and offsite protection of the cloud. EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure is now available from Windows Azure data centers worldwide.

EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure complements existing business infrastructures, simplifying backup and recovery of heterogeneous environments to the Windows Azure cloud. The service provides robust cross-platform support including Windows, Linux, IBM i and UNIX; multi-hypervisor support including VMware ESXi and Windows Server with Hyper-V; and granular restore capabilities for core Microsoft applications such as Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server, as well as Oracle databases. Because it can protect virtually any workload on a single cloud platform, EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure enables businesses to consolidate vendor contract issues and costs while also reducing risk.

“More than half of the Fortune 500 is already using Windows Azure. Integrating our flagship product into this extremely successful platform is an opportunity for us to bring the power of our cloud-connected technology to more organizations around the world,” said Terry Cunningham, President and General Manager, EVault. “We are proud to offer customers the data protection they need to meet their computing and business goals. Microsoft continues to build out the Windows Azure footprint, giving customers more options, and extending the global reach of EVault and that of our channel partners,” Cunningham added.

Microsoft and EVault partners can help organizations design their roadmap to the cloud and provide a superior customer experience by sharing their knowledge and proficiency of Windows Azure. Additionally, partners can reduce licensing complexity and lower costs for customers by deploying EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure that take advantage of their own Windows Azure subscription.

“Organizations are under increased pressure to protect their critical data, yet minimize capital investments. EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure enables our clients to take advantage of their investments in Microsoft technology to meet both business objectives,” said Ric Opal, Vice President and General Manager of Peters & Associates, a Chicago-based Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, and recent recipient of both Microsoft’s 2013 Midwest Partner of the Year award and 2013 Central Region Partner of the Year award. “Windows Azure and EVault provide cutting-edge security features and compliance with world-class industry standards to meet the regulatory demands of our clients, particularly those within the Financial Services and Healthcare sectors. Today’s news is further evidence of EVault’s ongoing commitment and strategic relationship with Microsoft, which is great news for our customers. Combined with our extensive project experience, we can collectively deliver a superior customer experience.”

EVault disk-based data protection technology was built from the ground up for fast, reliable, and secure backup and recovery. EVault technology includes built-in deduplication — every backup is a delta backup; changes are tracked at the block level—and compression efficiencies that speed data transfers, minimize network bandwidth usage, and reduce storage footprints. It also offers the high levels of encryption and security, a perfect complement to the Windows Azure network of data centers.

“By adding EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure to the existing portfolio of Windows Azure solutions, we’re able to offer our joint customers a reliable and security-enhanced data protection solution,” said Kim Akers, General Manager, Developer and Platform Evangelism, Microsoft. “With EVault Backup Services for Windows Azure, customers can take advantage of the open, flexible Windows Azure cloud platform to help ensure their critical data is protected and recoverable.”

This news follows EVault’s successful offer for new Windows Azure customers to receive one free year of EVault Endpoint Protection, a cloud-connected backup, recovery and data security solution for endpoint devices.

EVault provides cost-effective onsite, cloud, and cloud-connected — or hybrid — data protection solutions to help organizations protect and access their business data. The company has led the industry in the move to hybrid storage models, with a uniquely integrated ecosystem of EVault® storage software, SaaS, managed services, and appliances that help ensure that customers maintain business continuity in multiplatform, multisite environments.
