2014 was a very successful year for NovaStor’s network backup solution NovaBACKUP DataCenter. The revenue growth allows NovaStor to further invest in the software development, technical support and trainings for customers and partners.

AGOURA HILLS, CA – March 27, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Ending the 2014 fiscal year with such a success enables NovaStor, an international provider of award-winning backup solutions, to further invest into the future. Enhancing software features, further improving usability, and expanding the technical support department are just few areas of investment for the 2015 plan. Besides improving the network backup software NovaBACKUP DataCenter, NovaStor also started a new marketing initiative. To keep customers and interested parties up to date on the newest backup trends, NovaStor has added a bi-weekly newsletter and a monthly webinar that talks about network backup and NovaBACKUP DataCenter.

The market for network backup software used in heterogeneous environments from 5 to 500 servers, seems rather unstable at the moment. Symantec recently stopped offering the Backup Exec Appliance, and is now thinking about separating Backup Exec from their other products, CA sold Arcserve to an equity company, and Arkeia is now a part of Western Digital, a storage developer. Discussions about big companies that are re-aligning their focus, are found all over the internet.

“But what happens with the rest of us; companies, governments, universities and public utilities that don’t have the budget to purchase and maintain enterprise solutions that have to run on specific hardware?” asks Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor. “NovaBACKUP DataCenter’s sweet spot is performing like an enterprise backup software that is able to protect business critical data, but without all the enterprise issues, such as complex pricing models, confusing interfaces, and useless features.”

The revenue growth indicates that there is a need for a stable, reliable and cost effective data protection solution that includes support for the newest technologies and addresses the requirements of small and medium sized IT environments using the hardware of their choice. NovaStor is listening to its customers while keeping a pulse on the changing market trends to continuously improve the network backup solution NovaBACKUP DataCenter.

NovaStor expanded their marketing strategy to capitalize on this growth by adding a monthly webinar and a bi-weekly newsletter with a wide variety of topics around network backup, without the typical sales and marketing pitches. On April 3rd NovaStor’s Director of Products, Nathan Fouarge, is introducing the advantages of multistreaming for backups to disk and tape devices. During this 45 minute webinar, starting at 11AM (PDT), he will highlight ways to shorten backup and restore windows and explain how this feature can save IT budgets. Everybody who is interested is invited to join the webinar and chat with him afterwards.

Cayzu Cloud-based Customer Support - Manage all your help requests from a single portal

Two new cloud-based solutions launched for data storage and recovery

LONDON, UK – March 27, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — ITS, a nationwide Managed IT Services provider, has expanded its managed services suite by launching BlackCloud and BlackVault, affordable off-site data backup and disaster-recovery-as-a-service on ITS’s private cloud platform in the company’s dedicated, highly secure UK data centre.

ITS recognises that businesses across many sectors are experiencing a surge in the amount and type of data they are responsible for, including transaction records, images, videos, logs and more. Exponential growth combined with higher customer expectations and security, compliance and cost pressures have altered the requirements for vaulting and recovery.

BlackCloud makes enterprise-level vaulting and recovery affordable for small- and medium-sized businesses. The cloud solution provides secure and compliant data vaulting and recovery at a cost equivalent to an in-house backup operation.

BlackCloud is a secure, private cloud solution housed in a high-availability data center. BlackCloud architecture reduces risk of data loss and enables rapid data backup and recovery within a secure and flexible infrastructure. Customer data is compressed and transmitted to ITS’ remote vault with auxiliary power supplies, powerful computers and manned security.

ITS BlackCloud features include:

  • Fully automated cloud backup
  • Rapid recovery of systems
  • Deduplicated and encrypted data stored off-site
  • Customer access portal
  • Hardware and application support with guaranteed response times
  • Backup monitoring with remediation of failures

For customers that need additional protection for their data, ITS has launched BlackVault, an on-site addition to BlackCloud. This solution is a complete disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) package, offering on-site and off-site recovery services.

BlackVault is a pre-configured, fully integrated data storage unit, provided by ITS, that offers backup and recovery within a customer’s office, removing the need to purchase expensive equipment for replication and recovery. The unit can be installed at a location of the customer’s choice, creating a virtual environment while providing quick and easy access to the services when needed.

BlackVault features include:

  • Fully automated backup to an on-site BlackVault unit
  • Deduplicated and encrypted data stored on-site
  • High-speed local recovery
  • Off-site protection of mission-critical data
  • Physical and virtual recovery capabilities
  • Remote monitoring and recovery assistance
  • Standby recovery resources

ITS head of managed services, Matt Kingswood, stated, “Small- to medium-sized businesses struggle with data replication and disaster recovery (DR) because of the price tag. The ITS BlackVault appliance makes DR feasible for SMEs, enabling efficient and reliable data recovery to help meet recovery time objectives (RTOs).”

Matt is leading efforts to introduce a range of managed services based on the new ITS cloud platform. Matt has more than 20 years of experience in the information technology industry, and was formerly CEO of The IT Solution – a full service IT supplier acquired by ITS. Previously Matt had a career in technology for several top-tier investment banks before founding and selling several companies in the IT services industry.

In launching BlackCloud and BlackVault, ITS is building on its strong heritage in data backup and recovery services and providing managed IT services across the UK.

Cloud specialist makes designing, deploying and managing a DR plan simple and affordable while bringing cutting edge capabilities that transform DR into a valuable business asset

SANDWICH, KENT, UK – 27 March 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Ultra Secure Cloud service provider, The Bunker has today announced the launch of its Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Hosted on the company’s Ultra Secure, ultra available private Cloud and accommodating any combination of physical and virtual infrastructure, The Bunker’s DRaaS provides Small and Medium sized Businesses (SMBs) with a cost-effective solution that guarantees business critical applications and data are available rapidly in the event of a partial or full disaster.

The Bunker’s DRaaS makes designing, deploying and managing a Disaster Recovery (DR) plan simple and more affordable by allowing SMBs to consolidate data backup and DR onto a single, secure and high availability dedicated infrastructure for a fixed monthly cost. Users can backup to and restore from the private Cloud, backup to and restore to the private Cloud, and replicate to Virtual Machines (VMs) in the private Cloud. Crucially, they only pay for invocation when it’s used.

“Historically, DR preparedness and Business Continuity Planning have proved beyond the financial reach of SMBs,” states Philip Bindley, CTO, The Bunker. “However, advances in private Cloud and virtualisation mean many are exposing themselves to unnecessary risk. The Bunker’s DRaaS is hosted in our private Cloud, protects virtual and physical systems, and includes advanced capabilities for a low monthly fee. It means businesses can be assured that their applications and data will be restored rapidly should the worst happen, whilst realising a dramatic reduction in the cost of DR.”

The Bunker’s DRaaS eliminates the risk associated with tape storage and the cost of managing an off-site Disaster Recovery (DR) environment. It also incorporates cutting edge features, with granular restore capability flexing from partial to full ‘bare metal’ DR ensuring that should one part of a client’s infrastructure go down, The Bunker can recover just that, without the need to migrate all services to an alternative location. The physical DR appliance deployed at the client’s primary site also enables users to perform their own partial recovery without any intervention or invocation by The Bunker. Meanwhile, a unique sandbox facility allows DR testing of the client’s entire environment, as often as required, with QSA auditable reports that meet data protection and business resilience mandates.

“Most organisations today have a patchwork of backup and DR and harbour doubts as to whether it would work if called upon,” continues Bindley. “Worse still, testing risks substantial disruption to business as usual. Our DRaaS automates testing and reporting with zero disruption to the client’s live IT environment – or their business. With The Bunker, backup becomes painless while invoking DR is no longer a case of hitting the big red button and restoring an entire site. It’s now a controllable and scalable event, transforming DR from a necessary evil into a valuable business asset.”

About The Bunker
The Bunker provides Ultra Secure Hosting, Cloud, Colocation and IT Services from within the UK’s most secure facilities, outside the M25 yet within easy reach of London.

At The Bunker, we put security first and keep some of the most demanding businesses Ultra Secure and available. Our data centres are former nuclear bunkers upgraded with millions of pounds of investment in networking infrastructure, fire suppression, power and cooling.

NoSQL Pioneer and Creator of Cassandra Leads Development of Industry’s First Software-defined Platform to Bring Flexibility and Simplicity of Public Clouds to Any Data Center

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – March 25, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — After three years of stealth development, Hedvig emerged today with the announcement of $12.5 million in venture funding and a mature software-defined storage platform that fundamentally changes the economics of enterprise data storage and management. With the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform, cloud and data center professionals can consolidate storage of any type or location into a virtualized pool that drops the provisioning time and costs to small fractions of what it would take with traditional storage technologies today. Hedvig’s venture funding is a combination of seed and Series A rounds led by True Ventures and Atlantic Bridge, respectively. True Ventures and Redpoint Ventures also participated in the Series A.

“We considered launching the company at the seed round stage more than a year and a half ago, but many industry experts did not believe what we were doing could be done so it didn’t make sense to publicize our company until our platform was proven and in production at several customer sites,” said Hedvig founder and CEO Avinash Lakshman. “You only get one chance with storage. Enterprise data is arguably one of the most important business assets and we needed to earn our customers’ trust with a rock solid product. Today we are proud to unveil our storage platform that looks like the infrastructure that Google, Amazon and Facebook run internally, but packaged to bring that capability to any enterprise data center.”

Leveraging his success in building distributed computing systems at Facebook and Amazon – and along the way creating next-generation platforms including Cassandra and Dynamo (the genesis of NoSQL) – Lakshman saw an opportunity to apply a distributed systems approach to storage. His vision was to bring flexibility and simplicity to the compounding problem of data growing at 30 percent or more each year, a problem that every company faces.*

“Storage platforms that were built just five years ago cannot handle modern workloads which are complex, heterogeneous and spread across internal data centers and the cloud,” said Brian Long, General Partner at Atlantic Bridge. “To keep up with this rapid pace of growth and change, storage platforms must now be software defined. They must also be scalable, streamlined and most importantly, flexible enough to make instant provisioning changes.”

Based on the company’s patented distributed systems capabilities, the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform enables complete protocol consolidation by collapsing several layers of the storage stack into a single software platform, empowering enterprises with the ability to choose how to provision their storage. Organizations can increase capabilities as their needs evolve, without the need to reset their storage architecture. The Hedvig platform powers the ability to scale from several terabytes to petabytes and seamlessly spans on-premise, private and public clouds.

Customers benefit from an elastic, hybrid cluster that can grow incrementally to thousands of nodes by simply adding additional commodity servers. Policy and provisioning processes that normally take hours, days or weeks now take just a few clicks and can even be performed from mobile devices. [Editor’s note: See announcement titled, “New Hedvig Platform Disrupts the Data Storage Industry With Flexibility and Choice,” issued today for more information on Hedvig’s technology.]

“I’ve worked closely with Avinash and the Hedvig team from the start. I think we can all agree that software-defined storage is the future, but Hedvig tackles the problem from a very unique, distributed systems approach,” said Puneet Agarwal, Partner at True Ventures. “We look forward to seeing the company grow and pave the future of modern storage.”

The software-defined storage market is poised to reach $13B by 2020. Today, 78 percent of enterprises are looking at or are already using a software-defined storage solution.** However, the first generation of software-defined architectures cannot keep pace with scale-out applications or the velocity of change in the current business climate. As enterprises continue to store and analyze more data, and embrace new apps that generate their own data, storage professionals are unable to predict their requirements and meanwhile, 58 percent struggle with the days, weeks or even months of time it takes to provision storage.**

** “Meet Evolving Business Demands With Software-Defined Storage,” Forrester Research, Inc., March 2015

About Hedvig
Hedvig is rearchitecting software-defined storage. Hedvig accelerates data to value by collapsing disparate storage systems into a single platform, creating a virtualized pool that provisions storage with a few clicks, scales to petabytes and runs seamlessly in both private and public clouds. Built by software engineers of the world’s largest and most successful distributed systems, Hedvig delivers modern storage for any enterprise compute environment running at any scale. The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform is unconstrained by traditional thinking and existing architectures, resulting in the only software-defined storage incorporating true distributed systems capabilities. Built to keep pace with scale-out applications and the velocity of change in today’s business climate, the Hedvig platform gets better and smarter as the system scales, transforming commodity hardware into the most advanced storage solution available today. Customers such as Intuit, Dovilo, Van Dijk and Paul Hastings LLP use the Hedvig platform to transform their storage from a box where data resides to a fundamental business enabler. www.hedviginc.com

New alliance brings second generation data tokenization technology to the universe of managed service clients

WASHINGTON, DC. MARCH 30, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — CertainSafe, the global award-winning data security firm, today announced a partnership with MicroTech, an international technology provider and prime government contractor. CertainSafe will integrate its proprietary MicroTokenization and MicroEncrypted architecture within MicroTech’s private hybrid MicroKloud.

With the partnership, MicroTech will now be providing the strongest and most robust level of data security available to more than 100 ongoing federal projects and civilian clients, including the Department of Defense as well as several Fortune 500 companies. MicroTech is recognized as a top technology innovator, showcasing a 5000% revenue growth since its launch in 2004.

MicroTech’s flagship product, MicroKloud, is a premier solution that enables an on premise private-hybrid cloud in one compact, cost effective package. Built as a self-contained, secure, standardized and proven infrastructure the MicroKloud is pre-integrated, tested, and validated. Its design allows quick and easy deployment. MicroKloud increases the stability and availability of IT operations, providing simple yet safe access and transition to the cloud. The combined MicroKloud/CertainSafe platform makes moving and protecting both non-sensitive as well as ultra-sensitive data to the cloud a standard best business practice.

CertainSafe deploys its proprietary MicroEncryption technology almost simultaneously with the use of its MicroTokenization protocols which encrypts each file individually down to the byte level, something no other file sharing service can provide. CertainSafe offers the only file sharing platform which is PCI Level 1 DSS Certified. Users can store HIPAA, PCI, PFI, PHI, PII as well as other types of sensitive data that require compliance in addition to the highest levels of data protection.

CertainSafe has received numerous accolades, including PC Magazine’s coveted Technical Excellence in Security award as well as an Editors’ Choice Award. Additionally, CertainSafe has been recognized as an International Business Award winner. “CertainSafe is a great solution for businesses of any size, and the fact that it’s certified for compliance with HIPAA and other standards can be a huge plus if your business is subject to those regulations. I’m impressed with the security possibilities of MicroEncryption technology, and with the product’s ease of use,” writes Neil J. Rubenking of PCMag. CertainSafe also lists former Congressman and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Pete Hoekstra as well as Richard Marshall, distinguished cybersecurity expert, as advisory board members.

Data breaches can have costly outcomes. On average, each data breach costs an organization $359 for health care records and $201 for each standard record or data. Rack up enough of these and they can cost a company $3.5 million, which was the 2013 average, up 15% from 2012.

“We could not be more excited about this new partnership,” said Tony Jimenez, CEO of MicroTech. “The unification of MicroTech, with its multi-faceted IT managed services capabilities and Secure Cloud Systems, the leading provider in data security protection, forges a powerful combination. These combined innovative companies and their specialized services will offer an unheralded capability within the IT managed services ranks.”

“MicroTech, with its diverse cloud services offering, is a great complimentary fit with CertainSafe. Our innovative data security components will undoubtedly bring a world-class level of expertise, offering both clients and prospects newfound capabilities in any vertical they compete in,” says Kent Nies, Chief Business Officer of CertainSafe. “The marketplace is calling for an on or off-premise solution, and data security has become the necessary added ingredient – and is of paramount importance now and in the future. This partnership will provide the solution: to reduce cost and mitigate risk in the areas of IT infrastructure, support and data security.”

About CertainSafe
CertainSafe’s mission is to make the world safer, one byte at a time. CertainSafe provides organizations and individuals with technology, services, and education, for the secure management of their sensitive digital information, assisting them to mitigate risks and protect their reputation and assets. Through proprietary MicroTokenization® technology, file sharing and data storage is made secure from breaches. CertainSafe’s PCI Level 1 DSS Certification separates them from all others in the file sharing and collaboration marketplace and means all CertainSafe users can store HIPAA, PCI, PFI, PHI, PII as well as other types of sensitive data requiring compliance. Don’t trust your data to any other file sharing service. CertainSafe provides a 100% money back guarantee. Visit us at www.certainsafe.com.

About MicroTech

Intronis enables IT service providers and SMBs to fight back with newly updated Gremlins Defense Kit and data security resources

CHELMSFORD, MA – March 26, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Intronis, Inc., a provider of world-class backup and data protection solutions for the IT channel, today unveiled several new components of its “Data Loss Gremlins” Campaign, just in time for World Backup Day on March 31, 2015. Featuring six “gremlins” that personify common causes of data loss, including fire, natural disaster, theft, virus, user error, and equipment failure, Intronis’ nationwide awareness and prevention campaign returns for a second year to help educate small businesses about the importance of data backup and protection.

According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, the number of data breaches in the United States increased 27.5 percent in 2014 alone. The 2013 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report also revealed that 81 percent of all breaches happen to small businesses. On the heels of escalating cyber security concerns, President Obama called for better cyber security in his State of the Union Address in January, leading to increased educational and prevention efforts.

This year’s “Data Loss Gremlins” campaign offers several new educational resources in the Gremlin Defense Kit, which is intended for IT service providers to use in educating their small business customers. Intronis also offers a suite of rebrandable resources available to its IT channel partners for use in their own marketing efforts, including a complete gremlins email campaign. These resources include email templates, adoption papers, and an infographic detailing what data small businesses should back up.

“Since its inception in 2011, World Backup Day has aimed to inspire the public to make regular backups of their data and critical files, but many SMBs still don’t realize the risks their businesses face,” said Aaron Dun, CMO, Intronis. “For many small business owners, taking the necessary steps to protect their data – and ultimately their businesses – is rarely a formal protocol. Intronis created the Data Loss Gremlins Campaign to bring the severity of data loss to life—while providing actionable tips for business owners to use in the fight to prevent data loss.”

The Gremlin Defense Kit includes a number of tips for SMB and IT service providers, and the featured tech guide highlights the Six Ways to Fight the Data Loss Gremlins: 

  1. Encrypt data to keep it safe from prying eyes
  2. Follow best practices for virus and malware prevention
  3. Create BYOD security policies and protect mobile devices
  4. Implement strong user access control
  5. Develop a business continuity and disaster recovery plan
  6. Use off-site cloud backup

Intronis recommends that businesses fight back and protect their data from significant threats with the help of well-prepared and proactive managed IT services providers (MSPs). Some channel partners have already begun using the Intronis “gremlins” to call attention to these threats.

“Intronis’ Data Loss Gremlins are endearing, and we’ve adopted them as part of our marketing efforts to educate our customers and prospects on the threats facing SMBs today,” said Patty Willman, marketing specialist, Nashville Computer, Inc. “Some of the creative ways we’ve put them to work include promoting our Backup and Disaster Relief Seminar, and using them in our newsletters. With storm season approaching, I’m sure we will continue to find more great ways to use the Gremlins.”

New Azure services that maximize IT investments and developer agility

Speed, scale and cost economics are the most common benefits attributed to cloud computing. At Microsoft, we remain committed to providing the most complete cloud through hyper-scale, hybrid and enterprise grade services, designed to get customers to the cloud on their terms.

Earlier in the week, we announced Azure App Service to enable developers to rapidly build web and mobile apps for any platform and any device. And last month, we announced Azure Mobile Engagement, closing the marketing loop for app publishers and marketers allowing them to engage directly with all of their users.

Today, we are excited to announce updates to our hybrid strategy with new functionality in Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery, which will enable Availability on Demand. With the general availability of Azure API Management Premium, customers can now deploy and manage APIs with enterprise level features.

At Microsoft, we are committed to bring the benefits of cloud to all, IT professionals, developers and business decision makers. All of this innovation is a testament to that commitment.

New Back up and Disaster Recovery services enable Availability on Demand
As enterprises make the move to hybrid, management capabilities are critical in extending existing infrastructure and seamlessly managing, moving and storing data and applications across environments. Microsoft is investing in delivering industry-leading cloud management capabilities, and today we are continuing our investment with updates to Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery, which will enable Availability on Demand. These tools will allow on premises assets to easily extend into Azure for disaster recovery, analytics, backup, cloud bursting, migration, and development and testing.

Azure Backup helps you protect files and folders by providing multiple copies in multiple geographies. Azure Backup offers virtually seamless integration with Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) to help you protect Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Windows client, and Hyper-V virtual machine (VM) applications, among others. Now, Azure Backup can perform online backups of Windows and Linux infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) VMs, and then restore them as needed. Should you have a congested network, initial backups can be shipped to the nearest Azure datacenter and initially seeded leveraging Azure Import/Export Service. Azure Backup for IaaS VMs is available in preview, and you can visit our Azure Backup webpage for more information.

With new Azure Site Recovery functionality, also available in preview, you can now help protect your VMware VMs and physical servers using Azure as your disaster recovery site. Site Recovery provides near-zero recovery point objective (RPO) with continuous data-protection technology. Customizable Site Recovery plans can ensure that multi-tier applications are recovered to a consistent point in time, minimizing lost transactions and application errors. When your primary data center recovers, you can almost seamlessly failback to your on-premises virtual infrastructure. You can also test new versions of your applications and then failback a new version into production in your data center—or you can continue to run your applications in Azure as part of your migration to the cloud. For more information, please visit the Azure Site Recovery webpage. There is no additional charge for this feature.

Azure API Management Premium simplifies high availability and massive scale for APIs
Today marks the general availability of Azure API Management Premium. It includes premium capabilities such as Geo-distribution to host an API Management instance in multiple Azure data centers with configuration automatically synchronized around the world; Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity to connect the API Management proxy to your Azure Virtual Network (including ExpressRoute) to help achieve maximum security and performance when tackling hybrid scenarios and Integration with Azure Active Directory to provides better support for internal and business-to-business API programs, allowing developers to sign in to the Azure Management Portal with their corporate credentials. Premium tier pricing goes into effect May 1, 2015.

Azure Active Directory enhancements that protect and enhance access to cloud resources
We continue enhancing Azure Active Directory with multiple new capabilities that protect and enhance access to cloud resources. Key capabilities announced today include- Rollover of passwords: Azure AD allows the assignment of shared application accounts to groups. This is useful for managing access to company owned social media accounts. The real password of these accounts was known only by the administrator while group users have access with their work credentials. A very important security enhancement of this process, is the ability to automatically rollover these passwords. By automatically creating new strong complex passwords at custom interval, the risk of exploitation of company owned social media accounts is minimized. Set rules on any group: Administrators are able to set rules on any group of Azure Active Directory, based on user attributes (“department”, “country” etc) to dynamically define their membership. These groups can be used to provide access to applications or cloud resources or assign licenses to users. Multifactor authentication per application: Azure Active Directory now provides Conditional Access policies that lets you create access rules for any Azure AD connected application based on user location and group membership. More sensitive apps can be assigned stricter policies, such as requiring Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) outside of the corporate network while less sensitive apps can have more open policies.

Azure App Service powers the creation of intelligent web and mobile apps
On March 24, Scott Guthrie announced the availability of Azure App Service, an exciting new Azure service for application developers. Azure App Service is an enterprise-grade service that can help you quickly and easily create powerful enterprise web, mobile, logic, and API apps for multiple platforms and devices. App Service integrates the best of Azure Websites, Mobile Services and Azure BizTalk Services, along with new capabilities in Logic and API apps to provide you with a unified set of capabilities for everything from the development and management experience to the billing model. By removing the burden of developing across multiple platforms or learning new languages, App Service can help you to build more secure connections for your enterprise and software-as-a-service (SaaS) systems, to scale IT infrastructure, to automate business processes, and more—so you can focus on building groundbreaking apps and experiences, fast. Watch the launch event with Scott Guthrie. Learn more and try Azure App Service today.

Lastly, Azure Mobile Engagement available in preview is a SaaS-delivered, data-driven user engagement platform that enables real-time fine-grain user segmentation, app user analytics, and contextually-aware smart push notifications and in-app messaging across all connected devices.

As Spring has arrived, we are delighted to bring this new innovation to you. If you are not part of the Azure family yet, “spring” into a free trial, at Azure.com.

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – 26 March 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Attix5, a leading global supplier of data protection software and cloud solutions, demonstrated its technical expertise and the impact of its fastest-on-the-market data recovery solution at the Cloud Expo Europe 2015 exhibition.

Cloud security was the prevalent theme among the 15 000 visitors, a mixed group of mostly IT solution architects, software distributors and resellers.

The expo afforded exhibitors an opportunity to engage with customers and explain business-critical product features. All aspects of the cloud offering was covered at the event, including hardware for cloud providers, cloud management software for resellers, and disaster recovery providers, among others.

One of the main takeaways from the expo is that the market is ready for something more than just experiments, and is longing for a practical platform for business operations.

A survey revealed that enterprise environments need to move away from capital expenditure towards operational expenditure. This has resulted in a lot of companies performing business operations on “shadow” IT cloud-type applications like DropBox, Google Drive and iCloud, without the consent of company IT policy.

“Obviously, one of the main reasons for this is the lack of sanctioned cloud security for such operations in said environments. The key point conveyed was that IT was not keeping up with appropriate cloud offerings,” said Petrus Human, Attix5 CTO.

“In order to mitigate cloud security concerns, business continuity and disaster recovery options need to be interwoven to your IT policies. Aspects like secure communication, encrypted storage, and regular backups mean that a business is prepared in case of a mishap. Having all this in the cloud means that there will be almost zero downtime on a business-critical environment,” adds Human.

Attix5 turned heads with its demonstration, which revealed how two large databases, SQL and Exchange, were restored almost instantly, and how a Hyper-V image was booted up directly from cloud-based backup storage using the latest LiveRestore technology.

The company believed the event was a success and achieved its objective of creating awareness and facilitating discussion.

“We showed why we are a key influence and why our technology makes a difference,” Human added.

Attix5
Since being established in 1999 by a group of IT enthusiasts who tried to send large volumes of encrypted data down a very slow narrowband dial-up line, cloud and security have been part of its DNA. The company has grown from there to become a market leader, providing rock solid data protection and recovery solutions to SMEs and listed enterprises around the world. Its aim is to ensure data protection and recovery for stress-free business continuity.

And, they don’t know how many gigabytes of storage they need to back all of them up,” said Josh Petersen, Director of Amazon Cloud Drive. “With the two new plans we are introducing today, customers don’t need to worry about storage space—they now have an affordable, secure solution to store unlimited amounts of photos, videos, movies, music, and files in one convenient place.”

Beginning today, customers can start experiencing unlimited cloud storage for free with a 3-month trial on either plan. Prime members and Fire device owners who already enjoy unlimited photo storage can choose to sign up for the Unlimited Everything Plan to store videos and files in addition to photos. Existing Cloud Drive customers can change their plans now by simply logging into their Cloud Drive accounts.

ExaGrid disk-based backup system recognized for reduction of operating costs and improved productivity

LONDON, UK – Mar. 25, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid Systems, Inc. announced today that it has won the ‘Return on Investment’ award at the Annual Network Computing Awards 2015 ceremony in London. This latest award confirms its leadership position in the disk-based backup storage with deduplication market.

The ‘Return on Investment’ award is a new award category introduced in 2015 and represents the solution which helps organisations reduce operating costs and/or improve productivity. Online voting resulted in ExaGrid becoming the first winner of this award, validating ExaGrid’s unique position in the market as the only company to provide a purpose-built, scale-out approach to disk-based backup with deduplication. As a result, ExaGrid protects its customers from the requisite forklift upgrades that customers face with a scale-up approach as their data grows.

In addition, ExaGrid offers the ability to mix and match any size or age appliance, protecting customers from product obsolescence and providing ongoing investment protection. Consequently, by selecting ExaGrid as its strategic disk-based backup system, a customer can be certain that its investment is protected and will deliver increasing value over time.

“We are very proud to be acknowledged by the industry as the first winner of Network Computing’s ‘Return on Investment Award’ and would like to express our appreciation to everyone who voted for ExaGrid. This award reflects our ongoing efforts and steadfast commitment to deliver the fastest and most cost-effective disk-based backup solution,” said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid.

“From day one, ExaGrid has focused its efforts entirely on the development of a purpose-built backup storage solution. We continue to be the only vendor with this single focus, which is why we offer the most superior product solution in this space. It is also why we are the only vendor able to offer true investment protection against the ravages of data growth – something the scale-up offerings of our competitors can’t offer. This award underscores the importance for a customer who is using scale-up technology and hitting capacity to switch to ExaGrid to best protect their investment,” Andrews said.

ExaGrid’s win further validates the company’s recognition as ‘best at disk-based backup storage with deduplication’ by leading experts and follows its strong momentum over the past year, which includes:

  • Introduction of the company’s most innovative technology to date with the release of its EX32000E appliance and version 4.7 of its software, including introduction of the ExaGrid-Veeam Accelerated Data mover
  • More than doubling the full backup capacity of a single GRID system to a 448TB full backup
  • Receiving recognition from renowned industry experts such as Gartner, DCIG, ESG, and Storage Switzerland
  • Increasing support to over 25 backup applications and utilities

Running since 2007, the Network Computing Awards recognise companies and IT solutions that help organisations function better by getting the most out of their systems and networks.

About ExaGrid Systems, Inc.
Organizations come to us because we are the only company that implemented deduplication in a way that fixed all the challenges of backup storage. ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture provides the fastest backup — resulting in the shortest fixed backup window, the fastest local restores, fastest offsite tape copies and instant VM recoveries while permanently fixing the backup window length, all with reduced cost up front and over time.

With more than 80 percent of breach attacks targeting small businesses, any branch office, franchise or sole proprietor can use Netsurion to protect against cyberthreats.

Bartig joins Netsurion in the midst of a series of growth-oriented moves. In November 2014, Providence Equity Partners became the company’s majority shareholder, and the Netsurion (then VendorSafe) Board of Directors named Kevin Watson as CEO. In December 2014, Jay Conn was appointed COO, and in February 2015, the company rebranded to reflect its new expansion goals into related branch office/remote office-oriented markets such as hospitality, healthcare, legal and insurance.

“Mark brings to Netsurion an incredible amount of talent, experience and strategic perspective as well as a proven track record in driving impressive sale and revenue growth for leading technology companies,” said Watson. “We’re excited to welcome him as we accelerate our entry into new markets, where his expertise will, no doubt, be instrumental.”

Bartig comes to his new role with significant experience leading national and global sales organizations in data security, backup, cloud hosting and data center outsourcing. At Symantec from 2001-2011, he served as a member of the strategic leadership council, an internal strategy think tank. His most recent role at the firm was director of sales, U.S. Commercial, SMB and SMB SLED. During his tenure, he was responsible for driving more than $400 million in annual revenue through both direct sales and indirect channel partnerships. In 2011, he joined a global hosting company, Connectria Hosting, as vice president, where he led worldwide sales and revenue growth.

“Joining Netsurion was compelling because this type of security is essential right now for SMBs, driven by higher data breach risks and growing awareness and concern for the security of data,” said Bartig. “Netsurion’s cloud-managed firewalls are easy to implement and cost effective, enabling SMBs to achieve enterprise class security. I’m eager to be a part of the team and promote substantial sales growth as the company continues its expansion.”

DDN’s Powerful SFA 12KXE Slashes Storage Infrastructure Costs by 5X and Enables Seamless Scientific Collaboration as Part of World-Renowned ATLAS Experiment at CERN

SANTA CLARA, CA – March 24, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ –

News Facts

  • TRIUMF, one of the world’s leading subatomic physics laboratories and Canada’s national laboratory, is using DDN® Storage SFA® high-performance engine in combination with dCache, a global data distribution service, to help 3,000 scientists at 177 institutions across 38 countries collaborate on major scientific discoveries as part of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). As an ATLAS Tier-1 data centre, TRIUMF stores, processes and distributes around the clock massive amounts of data generated by the experiment. Located at CERN, the European organization for nuclear research, the ATLAS experiment played a major role in the most important particle physics breakthrough to date—the discovery of the Higgs boson, a fundamental ingredient to the building blocks that constitute our universe.
  • With storage performance a critical requirement especially at petabytes level, TRIUMF sought a powerful storage system with industry-leading density, reliability and efficiency that would significantly speed up data storage and processing. The organization also wanted to increase global collaboration by enabling seamless sending and receiving of large files with other ATLAS sites.
  • Using DDN® SFA® 12KXE with embedded dCache, TRIUMF consolidated both storage and data distribution within a converged architecture to deliver unlimited and seamless data access and sharing between nine other Tier-1 and 70 Tier-2 sites while minimizing access latency.
  • Thanks to DDN’s industry-leading density, running TRIUMF’s storage infrastructure now costs significantly less than before; the organization went from 21 4U servers requiring multiple racks to one DDN SFA system with 1.6 PBs running eight dCache virtual nodes in half a rack. Significant savings in data center space, power and cooling costs also have been realized.

Tweet This: TRIUMF slashes cost and improves performance per unit of space w/@DDN_Limitless storage for particle physics analysis http://bit.ly/1MFjEZv

DDN Streamlines Scientific Data Distribution to Increase Global Research Collaboration

  • DDN’s In-Storage Processing™ feature enabled TRIUMF to embed dCache within the storage controller, consolidating both its storage processing and data distribution requirements in one system, with simple, single pane of glass management.
  • DDN enables TRIUMF to handle the highest levels of intensive data processing and simulations in support of the biggest experiment of the century.
  • DDN’s scalable, high-capacity storage was ideally suited for accommodating TRIUMF’s aggressive storage growth, which expanded by at least one order of magnitude at each refresh cycle.
  • In addition to proven data resiliency, sophisticated DDN capabilities, including DirectProtect™ and Data-At-Rest Encryption, enabled TRIUMF to meet extremely stringent availability requirements.

Supporting Quotes
Reda Tafirout, research scientist at TRIUMF and director of operations for the ATLAS Tier-1 data centre in Canada

  • “We have used DDN for many years as a trusted provider. TRIUMF cannot afford any downtime while the ATLAS experiment is running and collecting data, so providing our storage services with the highest performance and reliability, while being fault tolerant against data corruption is extremely important and critical to our operations.”
  • “With DDN, we have no problem accommodating close to 5,000 data hungry cores hammering on our storage at the Tier-1 centre. Moreover, there are several hundred clients from all over the world accessing our data around the clock.”
  • “Running TRIUMF’s storage infrastructure costs significantly less than before. We went from 21 4U servers requiring multiple racks to one DDN SFA system with eight virtual dCache nodes in about half a rack; power went from 25 to less than 7 kilowatts in addition to major cost savings on cooling.”
  • “We made the right decision when we chose DDN to take TRIUMF to the next level of expansion. Having more powerful storage performance with higher density, reliability and performance will help us grow in place while keeping up with new use cases and increased demands for global scientific collaborations.”

New one-button tool from online security leader F-Secure helps people keep their Internet traffic heading in the right direction.

HELSINKI, FINLAND – March 25, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — The Internet works in mysterious ways for many people, and that’s something that attackers can use to their advantage. But Internet users now have an easy-to-use tool to help prevent themselves from becoming part of an online scam. The one-button Router Checker, developed by F-Secure, checks people’s Internet set-ups to help protect them from having their web traffic misdirected to websites that can spread malware or steal their personal information.

Router Checker makes it easy to identify altered Internet settings that can let attackers manipulate what people see and do online. Attacks that change router or Internet settings are popular amongst hackers because it allows them to reach large numbers of people without being noticed. According to F-Secure’s Labs, over 300,000 home or office routers were discovered to have altered settings in 2014, with each router potentially serving multiple computers, mobile phones and other devices.

Attacks like these are difficult to notice because they can manipulate people in very subtle ways. “Attacks that target Internet settings often go unnoticed because they don’t really have obvious symptoms for people to pick up on. People will suddenly see more ads, or they’ll be misdirected to a dangerous website that looks and feels safe”, says F-Secure Security Advisor Sean Sullivan. “This makes diagnosing these problems important, and Router Checker is all about making the diagnosis accessible and easy so that people don’t have to worry”.

Attackers try to manipulate people’s online behavior by changing their Internet settings to direct their traffic through “rogue DNS servers”. DNS Servers help computers and other devices find each other on the Internet. Attackers make money by setting up rogue servers to misdirect Internet users and connect them with websites that can contain fraudulent advertising, spread malware, or even trick them into revealing personal information. The new Router Checker makes sure the settings on people’s computers, phones, and even their routers connects them to safe DNS servers chosen by users or their Internet service providers.

According to Sullivan, making this information available to people at the click of a button makes it easy for them to make sure their computers stay healthy. “People rely on DNS servers to get things done on the Internet, but most people don’t know anything about the DNS they use. You’ve got to be able to trust these things to enjoy being online, and Router Checker builds that trust by letting people find out who handles their Internet traffic.”

Router Checker’s accessibility is a key feature because it gives people a stress free way to make sure their Internet set-ups are healthy. Unhealthy set-ups can usually be fixed by updating software or resetting a router, but the problem can have serious consequences if it goes unnoticed. Sullivan recommends taking advantage of the tool by running it as part of a spring-cleaning routine or as a go-to solution if you think there’s a problem. Router Checker is free to use and available now at www.f-secure.com/router-checker.

Law firm information management leaders will explore key topics related to data management, security, privacy, staffing and globalization of programs

BOSTON, MA – March 25, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ – Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management company, is hosting its fourth annual Law Firm Information Governance Symposium from March 26-27 in Atlanta, GA, bringing together some of the legal industry’s leading information governance thought leaders to discuss ideas for improving how law firms protect and manage information. This year, once again, symposium participants will drive the agenda and discussion, helping to advance standards and practices for information governance within law firms.

Similar to last year’s symposium, four task forces were commissioned to analyze and report on some of the most pressing information governance issues affecting law firms today. Over the two-day symposium, the task forces will present their initial findings and recommendations on each of the topics in a peer review format, using breakout sessions to further develop the reports for publishing by Iron Mountain later this year.

The task forces will be focusing on:

  • Effectively Managing Legacy/”Dark” Data – Led by Patricia Fitzpatrick, director of Information Governance & Compliance at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, this team will identify current information governance challenges and opportunities related to legacy/”dark” data.
  • Building an Information Governance Organization in the Law Firm – Led by Beth Chiaiese, CRM, director of Professional Responsibility & Compliance at Foley & Lardner, LLP, this team will discuss the organizational structure needed to implement information governance in the law firm, including challenges related to staffing and the transformation of records and information management to information governance.
  • Global IG Challenges – Led by Jim Flynn, CRM, director of Records and Docket at Winston & Strawn, LLP, this team will examine current challenges and opportunities related to information governance in regions outside of the U.S.
  • Transitioning from an Open Environment to Closed Environment – Led by Brian Donato, chief information officer at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, this team will spotlight current challenges and opportunities related to transitioning from an open environment to a closed environment, specifically regarding document security.

“Information governance continues to be one of the most complex and exciting topics for law firms today,” said Sue Trombley, managing director of Thought Leadership, Iron Mountain. “And as information governance has taken root and expanded, our symposium continues to grow and gain momentum with new topics driving the discussion. Newer issues like staffing, data management and expanding programs globally have risen to the fore, while security and information protection remain top of mind as well. Our task forces explored these topics and are eager to present them to their peers for discussion, with the goal of using those sessions to continue to refine and shape their reports using real-world expertise. We are honored that the industry continues to embrace the symposium as a platform for creative dialogue and problem solving on these important governance topics.”

Annual guide recognizes the best channel partner programs in the market

DRAPER, Utah, March 25, 2015– /BackupReview.info/ – StorageCraft Technology Corp. today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This is the third-straight 5-Star rating for the backup and disaster recovery solution provider.

This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

StorageCraft received the 5-Star Rating because of its Profit-Ability Partner Program, which maximizes profits for the company’s partners who sell backup and disaster recovery solutions as a service. The flexible, uncomplicated StorageCraft Profit-Ability Partner Program is unique among industry partner programs because it uses feedback from existing partners to design the program to ensure success for participants

To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

According to StorageCraft Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Curt James, the company’s 5-Star rating is testament to the value that it places on partner relationships. “We understand that in order for StorageCraft to be successful, our partners must be successful,” James said. “StorageCraft is constantly striving to provide fast, trustworthy backup and disaster recovery products for our partners to meet the needs of their clients in an ever-changing market. Then, we work with the partners to ensure they are able to maximize profits, and we provide them with training and marketing tools to help them sell their services.”
