New Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery Solution Reduces CAPEX Costs by up to 70 Percent, Overcomes Internet Bandwidth Limitations and Reduces Recovery Times From Days to Minutes
EL SEGUNDO, CA – Feb 18, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Infrascale, a leading provider of secure, cloud-managed data protection, today announced the release of the Infrascale Cloud Backup Accelerator. The all-in-one solution draws inspiration from four emerging technologies — direct-to-cloud backup products, integrated purpose-built backup appliances, WAN acceleration solutions and cloud storage gateways — to create a true industry first that makes cloud backup and recovery five times faster.
Since Infrascale was founded in 2006, its company leaders have believed in the promise of the cloud to protect business data, no matter where it resides, no matter the underlying operating system. But the cloud has inherent limitations, including the time it takes to replicate large datasets to the cloud. For example, with an average internet connection (25 mbps), it would take four days to replicate five terabytes of data to the cloud.
This limitation was one of the primary reasons behind Infrascale’s acquisition in June 2014 of Eversync, a Salt Lake City-based backup appliance manufacturer that had developed leading-edge deduplication technologies. As part of Infrascale’s hybrid strategy, these appliances are now cloud-connected and leverage Infrascale’s growing stack of cloud technologies.
“We wanted to create a fundamentally new approach to data protection that made it practical to back up and recover large datasets to and from the cloud, quickly and securely,” said Ken Shaw, CEO of Infrascale. “Effectively, we wanted to create the backup equivalent of a set-top box. A set-top box is a local appliance that connects your TV to the Internet and makes it possible to view a seemingly endless amount of online content. Similarly, the Cloud Backup Accelerator is a local device that enables businesses to back up their critical data and quickly stream it to the Cloud for long-term storage and archiving.”
The current backup and disaster recovery market puts the burden on companies to either choose an inadequate solution or cobble together products from multiple vendors into a complete data protection solution. Neither of which is practical or affordable.
“Infrascale’s Cloud Backup Accelerator combines the best elements of direct-to-cloud backup such as easy deployment and inexpensive storage with the best parts of purpose-built backup appliances, namely fast backup and recovery, into a simple but powerful solution,” said George Crump, president and founder of Storage Switzerland. “When you add WAN optimization capabilities that go beyond just leveraging deduplication and compression, the Cloud Backup Accelerator becomes a compelling option that businesses should consider.”
