Securstore Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Why Many Still Use Agent Based Backup?

Agent based backup is one of the oldest methods of managing and protecting computers connecting to a network. It is often referred to as guest based backup.

Features of an agent based backup:

  1. An agent is installed on every machine that connects to the network
  2. Every machine functions as if it were a physical server on the network
  3. The agent facilitates the streaming of data to the backup server in the Cloud
  4. Application administrators and computer administrators of the machine interact with the agent interface for all backup, recovery or reporting needs of data stored remotely in the backup server.

Cloud service providers, who entered the market in the infancy of the Cloud, adopted agent-based backup as a tested and proven method of protecting and managing individual computers on the network.  Statistics show that agent based management was adopted by about 46% of the people who created networks. Virtualization made no difference to the statistics, as users preferred to install an agent within the virtual machine and used the guest based backup systems to protect the information contained therein.

Why do users stick to agent based backup?  The reasons are many.  The learning curve is short as both physical and virtual machine agent based backup systems function in identical ways. Application managers are comfortable using this system as the agent runs on their machine. They can manage the remotely stored data or orchestrate a backup or recovery from their own desktops. Certain agents even display the remote drive as a local drive on the system. If virtual machines are in use—such as VMware Fault Tolerant virtual machines or Physical raw disk virtual machines—these machines can only be protected using agent based backup systems.

However, critics of the system have many faults to find with the efficiency of the agent-based backup.  They argue that agent based systems consume a significantly higher amount of CPU, memory, IO and network resources.  These agents have to be installed on every physical computer and virtual machine. Update of the agent is time consuming. The cost per license is high as opposed to other types of systems.  It does not accommodate the needs of virtualization efficiently. The system may breakdown if there is virtual machine sprawl. There is a lack of visibility when changing virtual infrastructure or VMware vSphere is used at client level.  There is no protection for virtual machines that are offline. Finally, the backup and recovery itself may be slow.

Securstore provides a bespoke offsite backup solution catered for customers who have both mission-critical data and non-critical data i.e. it provides customers with a secure & efficient backup and recovery solution which is sustainable over time. This coupled with agentless technology and advanced support for all environments and applications makes it suitable for any type of business, data centre provider or reseller.

Newly captured photos now instantly available on smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 17, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Eyefi (www.eyefi.com), the global leader in digital camera connectivity, today unveiled Eyefi Cloud, a private photo-centric cloud service that makes newly captured photos instantly available on a smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV. Eyefi Cloud was designed for photo enthusiasts who require the superior image quality provided by digital cameras but are frustrated with the time-consuming processes required to enjoy those photos on multiple devices. Eyefi Cloud, along with the Eyefi Mobi wireless SD card and Eyefi Mobi apps, makes every picture taken organized and instantly accessible, anytime anywhere—to enjoy, curate and share securely and privately.

In June 2013, Eyefi pioneered simple, instant image transfer from digital cameras to mobile devices with the launch of Eyefi Mobi wireless SD memory card. Now Eyefi adds a new cloud service, Eyefi Cloud, as well as all new mobile apps for iOS and Android based smartphones and tablets. When used together, Eyefi’s product line-up combines camera quality and mobile convenience with the power of the cloud for the over 500 million digital camera owners throughout the world. Until now, digital camera owners had to manually transfer photos to see them on their smartphone or tablet. With Eyefi, the highest quality images are as accessible as photos captured using a smartphone and can be shared and enjoyed on the preferred viewing device.

“Photo lovers know that life’s most important moments should be captured using a digital camera but it’s difficult to access those shots until long after the images are taken,” said Matt DiMaria, chief executive officer of Eyefi. “Eyefi Cloud makes those highest-quality shots available within seconds of them being captured, so photographers can immediately enjoy quality images on the beautiful displays of their smartphone, tablet, PC or smart TV.”

The Eyefi Mobi SD memory card begins the image transfer process within milliseconds of a photo being captured on a digital camera. Images are automatically and securely transferred to Eyefi’s new mobile apps for iOS and Android devices. Eyefi apps intelligently organize and transfer the images, in full-resolution, to Eyefi Cloud. Now, any device with the Eyefi apps or with a browser-enabled device can be used to view, share and manage the entire photo collection.

The new Eyefi offerings include a full range of photo related services including:

  • Transfer – Add wireless functionality to any digital camera, and easily send images from camera to mobile device or desktop.
  • Organize – Sort and tag images as they are taken, so they are easy to find later – for sharing, printing, and all the other wonderful ways photos are used.
  • Sync – Automatically synchronize photos to all devices so that users can view, edit, and manipulate photos both on and offline, anytime, anywhere.
  • Share – Invite friends and family to view photos and albums without requiring registration. Photo collections are “live”, so any additions to an existing collection will generate a notice to recipients that new images have been added.

For photographers with multiple cameras, Eyefi Cloud automatically merges their photos into a single, well-organized collection where they can be enjoyed together and further curated. The entire collection is then available on all the user’s devices.

For customers that do not wish to transfer images over the Internet, Eyefi also introduced Eyefi Desktop Transfer apps for the PC and Mac platforms. Eyefi Desktop transfer sends images directly from a digital camera equipped with Eyefi Mobi SD memory card to a PC or Mac without the need for a physical cable. Transferred images are stored on the user’s PC or Mac in a file location of their choice where they can be enjoyed, edited or archived.

Along with Eyefi Cloud, the company today unveils a new logo, aligned to the sleek simplicity of its products.

Eyefi Mobi wireless SD memory card pricing begins at $49 for the 8GB edition. Customers will find the new Eyefi Mobi apps in the Apple app store, Google Play app store and Amazon Kindle app store. Included with the new apps, is a three-month membership to the Eyefi Cloud once they activate a new account. Existing Eyefi Mobi card customers can simply download the new apps and will also receive a three-month membership. Twelve-month memberships start at $49 for an unlimited number of photos. Find out more at www.eyefi.com.

About Eyefi
At Eyefi we are passionate about photography. We build products and services that help photographers experience the beauty and clarity of life’s moments anytime, anywhere. We are dedicated to creating products and services that enable consumers to enjoy a secure, magical experience beginning the moment they take a picture and extending to anywhere they wish those images to go.

Complex IT Environments, Growing Data Volumes and Compliance Regulations Provide Challenges to Manage Backup and Restore Operations

NEW YORK, NY – April 17, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — BUMI (Backup My Info!), the premium provider of managed online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the findings of an independent industry study of leading IT consultants regarding their data backup and recovery tools, initiatives and concerns.

According to the survey, 88 percent of respondents indicated their clients have some type of backup and recovery strategy in place. However, more than one-third of respondents (39 percent) do not believe their clients are properly prepared for a large-scale disaster or outage.

Confidence in restoring data spanned a broad range; 79 percent expected the timeline to be within hours and 19 percent indicated it would require several days. Approximately 2 percent had no confidence their data would be restored correctly at all.

The study also uncovered that less than half of respondents (44 percent) checked client backups daily for errors, 15 percent checked weekly, 21 percent checked monthly and 8 percent checked annually. An astounding 13 percent never check for client backups for errors.

“Data backup is not a ‘set it and forget it’ operation,” said Jennifer Walzer, CEO of BUMI. “This study suggests there is a lack of urgency to ensure that backup errors either do not occur or get corrected quickly. Additionally, these findings underscore the need for IT consultants, channel partners and their respective clients to work with a trusted partner to ensure data backup and recovery procedures are managed proactively and continuously.”

When backup errors are found, only 19 percent of the IT professionals surveyed resolve them in less than an hour, 52 percent resolve them within a day, 25 percent resolve them within a week, and 4 percent ignore them completely.

With SaaS, hosted cloud solutions, BYOD, and virtualization becoming more prevalent, IT environments are growing in complexity. Sixty-five percent of respondents thought a hybrid model of cloud and onsite appliance is the best strategy for reliable restoration of data.

Added Walzer, “While today’s complex environments support data accessibility from a broad range of devices located within and beyond the firewall, they are also vulnerable when a disaster or outage occurs. Organizations must continue to examine their data backup and recovery processes and make adjustments to ensure business continuity and mitigate the risk of downtime.”

Additional Study Highlights

  •  The top three decision criteria for selecting a backup and recovery vendor are: data security, technical service and support, and technology features and functionality.
  •  All data is not backed up equally: Microsoft Exchange and other email platforms, SQL databases and Microsoft Office files are the top three applications that take priority.
  •  Compliance is also a huge and ever-changing challenge, with HIPAA (52 percent), SOX (36 percent) and SEC 17a-4 (30 percent) rounding out the top three regulatory requirements organizations need to adhere to with respect to data backups.

The survey was conducted during the fourth quarter of 2013 and is based on responses from 100 independent IT professionals, including managed service providers, value added resellers, and other channel consultants. Industries represented include financial services, healthcare, technology, legal, accounting, real estate, non-profit and government.

Manhattan-based BUMI (Backup My Info!) is a premium managed service provider specializing in data backup and recovery.

The service will cost $20 per month, with annual subscriptions receiving a 15% discount

SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — Streem today announced the launch of its flagship product, Streem Drive, the first unlimited cloud storage and media streaming service.

Streem is a magic drive that never runs out of space. Consumers can put files into Streem, free up space on their computer and mobile devices, and instantly access their content anywhere, anytime. Streem integrates natively on every platform, with apps available for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and Web.

“The amount of media people are accumulating is exploding, and we want to make sure consumers don’t have to think about running out of space for their videos, photos, and other cherished memories,” said Ritik Malhotra, co-founder and CEO of Streem, and 2012 Thiel Fellow. “We want everything to be seamless — from our native software integration to the unlimited cloud storage, so you don’t have to change your behavior to use Streem.”

Unlike other cloud storage services, Streem doesn’t require consumers to keep files stored on their devices, which have limited storage space. Instead, Streem stores a single copy in the cloud, and streams the file data on-demand when it’s accessed.

Files are opened natively on the device, requiring no special software, configuration, or any change in the consumer’s behavior. Large videos are instantly streamed using proprietary adaptive bitrate streaming technology, giving consumers the best possible quality without any lag, no matter the device or bandwidth.

Streem lets consumers easily share their media with their family and friends. Streem’s file streaming technology makes it so that everyone can instantly access shared content without having to wait for it to download or sync.

“I really like the fact that I can just store everything and never have to worry about it again,” said Tony Ho, an early beta tester of Streem. “Services like Dropbox might work for backing up small files, but Streem has been the best for storing and sharing gigabytes of videos. I recently took a bunch of photos and videos on my phone, shared them with my grandparents, and they saw them instantly — halfway across the world. It just works.”

Consumers can use Streem in many different ways:

• Store lifelong memories, including wedding photos, videos of a birthday party, and everything in between.

• Stream movie collections on a laptop or phone on the go, or even on a TV while relaxing on the couch — all without maintaining that pesky RAID array or NAS running in the closet.

• Create, edit, and share music and photos through Streem, making it easy to deliver content to millions of people.

Streem has native apps for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and Web, with support for Chromecast, Roku, and other platforms coming soon. The service will cost $20 per month, with annual subscriptions receiving a 15% discount. Streem is launching in a closed beta, and will be completely free for all users during the beta. Sign up today at https://www.streem.com

About Streem
Streem is changing the way consumers store, share, and consume their media. By offering unlimited storage in the cloud and proprietary adaptive streaming technology, Streem is able to let people access their data directly from the cloud, wherever and whenever, without having to always carry it around on their devices. Users never have to worry about running out of space ever again. Founded by former Twitter and Microsoft employees, Ritik Malhotra and Tanooj Luthra, Streem is well-funded by notable investors, including Y Combinator.

CloudByte Also Named a Finalist for the DCS Storage Software Award

CUPERTINO, CA – April 16, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — CloudByte, the first provider of secure, multi-application storage for enterprise-grade clouds, announced today that Felix Xavier, the company’s founder, will speak at the first SNIA Data Storage Innovation (DSI) conference, in Santa Clara, California, April 22-24, 2014. Xavier’s session titled “Forming Storage Grids Using iSCSI” is part of the “Storage Plumbing” track and will take place on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 3:25 p.m. local time.

The session will cover the new storage requirement brought by the cloud today: each of the storage nodes needs to talk to each other and bring the hot data near the application across datacenters. The communication between storage nodes should be standard-based to form a global cloud. Xavier will explain how storage nodes can communicate with each other on the iSCSI standard protocol to form a storage grid and serve the same set of data across multiple datacenters to application instances.

The Data Storage Innovation Conference (DSI) is owned and produced by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). DSI is targeted at IT decision-makers, technology implementers, and those expected to influence, implement and support data storage in production environments. DSI identifies the latest IT and storage technology innovations, examines the challenges and opportunities IT organizations most frequently face, and offers practical solutions from leading vendors, consultants and innovative IT end-users. DSI’s agenda offers vendor-neutral SNIA Tutorials, end-user case studies, presentations from Storage-focused analysts and technologists, technical updates and roadmaps from industry associations, and product talks from vendors (both well-known and startups).

CloudByte is also announcing that earlier this month, it was chosen as a finalist for the DCS awards in the “Datacenter ICT Storage Software” category. This followed the recent recognition that the company received as a winner of the 2013-2014 Cloud Awards Program in the Best Cloud Infrastructure category.

Flash-Optimized CS-Series Array is Trusted to Address the Storage Needs of Customers Implementing VDI Using Citrix XenDesktop

SAN JOSE, CA – Apr 17, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), a leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions, today announced that its flash-optimized storage solutions have been verified as part of the Citrix Ready® VDI Capacity Program Verified for Citrix XenDesktop®. The Citrix Ready VDI Capacity program is designed specifically to address the storage needs of customers who already have or are thinking about implementing desktop virtualization (VDI) using XenDesktop.

The Citrix Ready VDI Capacity program helps guide customers regarding VDI storage needs. The program enables Citrix storage partners to test their solutions against a turnkey “VDI Capacity” test environment that contains the necessary compute resources needed to generate a 750-user reference XenDesktop deployment, and thus demonstrating the appropriate amount of storage performance and capacity with a cost-efficient design. Partners whose technology satisfies the test criteria are determined to be verified as part of the Citrix Ready VDI Capacity Program Verified for 750 users.

“Our testing of the Nimble CS-Series array showed that a robust yet simple configuration is possible for VDI scenarios with up to 750 concurrent VDI desktop users,” said Greg Fox, director, Citrix Ready program at Citrix. “By taking part in the Citrix Ready program, Nimble is helping customers make informed storage purchasing decisions when implementing VDI.”

View the whitepaper to gain in-depth analysis of the Nimble Storage testing and verification with Citrix XenDesktop: http://info.nimblestorage.com/rs/nimblestorage/images/wp-citrix-xendesktop-validation-nimble-storage.pdf

Nimble Storage has developed a flash storage architecture engineered to address the industry’s most pressing storage issues: delivering better performance and capacity at a reasonable price; providing integrated protection with rapid back up and recovery; and, reining in storage complexity. The company’s products are based on its patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) that leverages fast read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives. Nimble combines this flash-optimized architecture with Nimble InfoSight, a cloud based management service that delivers predictive support and operational simplicity through deep data analytics.

“A positive end-user experience is heavily dependent on storage performance, and picking the right storage for VDI is a critical factor for success. To meet storage performance requirements enterprises need a flexible storage solution that can cost-effectively handle peak loads of disruption as well as cater to the intensive write demands of VDI. Nimble provides such a solution,” said Radhika Krishnan, vice president of product marketing and alliances. “Our participation in the Citrix Ready program is validation of our commitment to provide a highly responsive yet cost-effective end-user experience for Citrix XenDesktop.”

Semiconductor Firm Slashes Latency to Enable Remote Productivity

PITTSBURGH – April 15, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for cloud enabled data centers, today announced that Sigma Designs has deployed Avere’s FXT Series Edge Filers to deliver significantly improved productivity for design engineers by providing fast, reliable access to critical design systems and data. With Avere, Sigma Designs IT organization can consistently deliver responsive, high-availability infrastructure, even as rampant data growth strains systems and mounting administrative and energy costs threaten always-tight budgets.

Sigma Designs IT evaluated options from NetApp and flash-based storage vendors before choosing Avere for its ability to significantly reduce latency at half the cost of other solutions.

“Avere Systems gives our company new flexibility to deploy infrastructure for both productivity and cost advantage,” said Ali Siddiqui, IT Director at Sigma Systems. “Moving our servers and storage to a remote co-located data center—with greater infrastructure protection and lower power costs—allowed us to deliver higher availability to our design teams at a lower cost. Avere technology lets us maintain a ‘local’ user experience, protecting the low-latency responsiveness engineers need to stay productive.”

“For technology firms like Sigma Designs experiencing exponential data growth, every hour of reduced productivity can put schedules at risk and incur significant cost to the company,” said Ron Bianchini, CEO, Avere Systems. “Avere’s FXT Series Edge Filers continue to gain traction in the market because of our unparalleled ability to reduce latency and improve performance at half the cost of other solutions, delivering real business value and competitive advantage to customers like Sigma Designs.”

Guide Enables MSPs to Tailor a Backup and Restore Plan for Customers that Protects Continuity of Operations from Everyday Data Loss Mishaps, to Worst Case Disaster

SUNNYVALE, Calif.– April 15, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — Zetta.net, a leading enterprise-grade cloud backup and disaster recovery (DR) solutions provider, today announced a backup and restore planning guide that identifies four primary restore requirements to keep in mind when evaluating backup and restore solutions. The guidelines provide recovery best practices for managed service providers (MSPs) to help businesses handle the everyday mishaps of data loss caused by human error and hardware failure to the least likely, worst case disaster.

Tweet this: @zettanet provides #Backup and #Restore Planning Guide that enables #MSPs to protect customers’ continuity of business – bit.ly/1iz38sK

“Headline-grabbing events like a hurricane is what gets companies on the war path to address disaster recovery,” said Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer, Zetta.net. “But it’s the everyday human errors—mistakes such as wiping out a file system or accidentally deleting a critical file—that are the primary culprits of lost data.”

Rather than adopt a solution that only addresses one particular area of recovery, successful MSPs are increasingly aligning with offerings that cover a range of restore requirements.

Zetta.net has identified four primary restore use cases and solutions which include:

• Single file restore. Recovery is focused on retrieval of a single email or file that might have been inadvertently lost. The primary consideration is to choose a backup and restore solution that can replicate data in its native file system format, like a network file share to locate and retrieve the file needed.

• Corrupted database. An isolated event where a single database needs to be restored due to human error and the database is no longer usable. The recovery option must facilitate a rapid restore, and with a single database, local backup capabilities are the recommended approach.

• Full server. A proper backup and restore strategy needs to account for the timely recovery of a full server restore to get a business back on track as quickly as possible. Having an image-based backup of a server ensures that everything, from the operating system to the antivirus software and databases, are fully cloned and ready for operation in the event of a system failure.

• Office disaster. In the rare case that a cataclysmic event like a typhoon or fire compromises a company’s operation, business will be shuttered unless proper accommodations have been made to run a backup of core systems and data from an off-site location. On-site local backup, including backup appliances, is of no use in this situation, especially if an office or a building is destroyed. Any data or applications that are essential to running the business must be replicated offsite for optimal restoration.

While best practices will vary according to the restore use case, Zetta.net highlights three universal requirements to consider when determining a backup and restore solution. These include:

• Performance. Recovering a sizeable database or performing a full server restore requires a different level of performance than restoring a file over the Internet. Given that all file transfer and network protocols are not created equal, the restoration guidelines advise that MSPs seek a solution that is WAN-optimized, leveraging capabilities like advanced data compression and multi-threaded data transfer to move large amounts of data quickly and securely over the Internet.

• Security. The Internet can lack security, so it’s critical that an enterprise-ready cloud backup solution supports the proper encryption and security standards. The guidelines advise that MSPs look for backup and restore solutions that support encryption both in flight and at rest and WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) to ensure that large amounts of data can be sent online in a secured fashion.

• Support. Backup and restore vendors offer a range of approaches and fee structures for support. Some vendors charge a premium monthly fee for support while others charge a percentage of the yearly cost (up to 25%) for technical support. MSPs need to help customers factor in support costs as part of their overall evaluation.

Partners that choose eFolder BDR for Acronis will take advantage of:

·       1 terabyte (TB) of cloud storage per protected server in the eFolder Cloud, covering the vast majority of SMB cloud storage requirements and mitigating the unpleasant cost surprises due to client data growth and cloud data sprawl

·       Global deduplication, eliminating the storage and transfer of data blocks by identifying redundant data blocks across backup agents, servers and client environments and reducing bandwidth requirements by 50 percent or more

·       A forever incremental, dedupe-aware backup and replication algorithm, eliminating the need for channel partners to ever have to reseed data in the cloud and reducing total labor costs for BDR services

·       Tiered retention policies with different on-site and off-site retention policies and more efficient cloud storage utilization

“We are excited that a fast-growing and innovative company like eFolder selected Acronis AnyData Technology to power its new backup and disaster recovery offering,” says Rene Oldenbeuving, general manager of the Cloud Business Unit at Acronis. “Acronis Universal Restore’s ability to recover any full system image both of and on physical and virtual servers, and eFolder’s secure Cloud, strong business model and very successful partner network have merged into a single service for SMBs. We’re convinced that this combination will be a truly successful offer. For Acronis, this partnership with eFolder is another key opportunity to deliver high-quality service and continuously develop optimized, data protection technology to the growing number of businesses seeking IT as a Service to secure and protect their data and IT infrastructure. Their business continuity must be assured at any moment, so they only rely on the best to protect their data.”

eFolder BDR for Acronis is designed to work with virtually any SMB deployment scenario, including small single server environments that backup directly to the cloud; scenarios where partners have built their own BDR appliances; or deployments with eFolder-supplied BDR appliances.

Data Protection Innovator Now Serves as a Single-Source Provider of Business Recovery to Channel Partners across North America

CHELMSFORD, MA – April 16, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ – Intronis, Inc., provider of world-class cloud backup solutions for the IT channel, today announced the immediate availability of its Spring Release ’14. The new platform enhancements, which include expanded support for physical imaging and virtualized environments including Hyper-V and VMware 5.5, significantly extend the Intronis cloud backup platform to become the IT channel’s leading single-source provider of business recovery services. The Spring Release ’14 enables channel partners to streamline the tools they use, reducing their management time, while expanding business opportunities with their customers and prospects.

“Business IT environments are becoming increasingly more complex and data-driven, putting greater pressure and responsibility on the channel partner to protect, secure and recover the entire business, not just the data,” says Rick Faulk, Intronis CEO. “Our Spring Release ’14 is the first in a series of new product introductions coming over the next several months that addresses these challenges head on, and provides our channel partners with an all-in-one data protection platform that will help deliver faster data recovery and maximize business availability.”

The Intronis Spring Release ’14 adds a number of important features that will enable channel partners to more effectively and efficiently support blended IT environments and virtualized solutions.

Major features added to the Intronis Cloud Backup and Recovery Solution include:

  • Physical Imaging: Intronis partners are now able to backup servers, laptops, and desktops locally, and provide their clients with local image-level, P2V (physical-to-virtual) and object-level recovery. Intronis partners can backup these images using a recurring-interval or calendar-based schedule, enabling fine-grain control over recovery points. Plus, backups can be saved locally or on a network share for faster data recovery.
  • Hyper-V: In addition to backing up VMware virtual machines (VMs), Intronis partners can now backup Hyper-V VMs to the Intronis Cloud, to a local device, or both. Hyper-V backups are stored and encrypted, and partners can save any number of historical versions of VM backups using Advanced Archiving rules.
  • Expanded Platform Support: Other enhancements in this release include support for Exchange 2013 and VMware vSphere version 5.5, a refreshed user interface, faster performance on the Intronis portal, and faster file-level restores.

“By adding support for Hyper-V, VMWare 5.5, and Physical Imaging, Intronis is fulfilling our desire to leverage a single vendor and platform for all of our customers’ backup and recovery needs,” says David Alger, CTO, Mobius Works, a long-time Intronis partner. “With the Intronis Spring ’14 Release, we can now easily restore a virtualized image so that our customers can get back up and running more quickly in the event of an outage or data loss.”

For Intronis partner Computer Network Services in Florida, the Spring Release ’14 means the total IT solutions provider can now offer new and existing customers the ability to extend Intronis’ offerings to their main servers, while continuing to use the cloud file and database features for other systems and mobile users. “Virtualization is a necessity for any business, so for us, the ability to support Hyper-V is imperative to stay on target and continue to deliver exceptional customer service,” says Matthew Ritchie, IT consultant and network engineer, Computer Network Services, a Stevens and Stevens LTD company.

The new and advanced features and functionality within the Intronis Spring Release ’14 are proven to help channel partners better manage, support and protect their customers’ IT ecosystems. “The Spring ’14 Release is a transformative announcement for Intronis and positions our partners to deliver higher-value services and enterprise-grade support,” says Chuck DeLouis, Intronis vice president of product management. “It’s extremely rewarding to see the enthusiasm our partners have for Intronis’ new Spring Release ’14 and the solutions coming shortly on our strategic roadmap.”

25,000-User Benchmark Results Confirm Linear Scalability of Red Hat Storage and ownCloud running on x86 servers

LEXINGTON, MA – April 16, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ – ownCloud, Inc., the company behind the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software, today released its performance testing for ownCloud Enterprise Edition with Red Hat Storage, Red Hat’s open, software-defined storage offering, running on x86 servers that demonstrate the cost and performance efficiency gained by running ownCloud with Red Hat Storage on industry-standard servers.

The performance testing benchmarked 25,000 concurrent users of ownCloud Enterprise Edition and Red Hat Storage running on industry-standard x86 servers. The configuration used illustrates a 2x total cost of ownership (TCO) improvement by converging the application server and storage server tiers onto the same servers, compared to traditional solutions with separate storage server appliances. This enables businesses to scale quickly and cost-effectively with user demand like a public cloud with far greater control of sensitive data and without subsidizing free cloud vendor users.

Red Hat and ownCloud used two twin-node x86 storage servers and four standard 2-socket servers for the performance benchmark. ownCloud Enterprise Edition and Red Hat Storage were installed and benchmarked on first one, and then two twin storage servers, serving as converged storage and application nodes. In addition, a MySQL NDB cluster was installed on two of the 2-socket servers, with another used as a load balancer out front with the final 2-socket server used as a load generator.

The results show clear linear scalability when adding converged servers with a sustained load per server of 25,000 active users, demonstrating an architecture that can scale to meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of users.

ownCloud Enterprise Edition — based on ownCloud Community Edition, the world’s most popular open source file sync and share project, with more than 1.3 million users — is deployed fully on premises, enabling integration into existing user management tools, governance processes, and security, monitoring, and back-up tools. ownCloud can also leverage nearly all on site storage, and can be deployed with cloud storage as well — such as Amazon (S3) and OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) – to create a centrally controlled hybrid deployment model.

“Red Hat Storage is a perfect environment for businesses looking to keep control of their data while lowering storage costs and still giving employees file sync and share that they will use,” said Matt Richards, vice president, Products, ownCloud. “The combination of Red Hat Storage and ownCloud Enterprise Edition gives businesses an open, secure and private way for their employees to sync and share secure corporate data.”

With ownCloud Enterprise Edition and Red Hat Storage, enterprises customers can take more control of their files with on-site application servers and storage to manage large big data workloads while integrating easily into existing IT environments. The ownCloud and Red Hat solution gives IT more manageability with sensitive enterprise documents while providing a simple file sync and share experience they demand.

“ownCloud gives enterprise users the ability to share and sync files in an open source and secure way,” said Brent Compton, director, ecosystem, Storage and Big Data, Red Hat. “As illustrated by these benchmark results, the combined ownCloud solution with Red Hat Storage and leading x86 storage servers is very attractive to customers looking for similar scalability and TCO benefits available from public cloud solutions but with increased control and security.”

The combination of Red Hat Storage and ownCloud 6 Enterprise Edition offers organizations a custom-built and scalable way to deploy and manage highly scalable, centrally managed and cost-effective file sync and share capabilities.

VMware vCloud(R) Hybrid Service(TM) – Disaster Recovery, Available Now, Seamlessly Extends Disaster Recovery to the Public Cloud

PALO ALTO, CA – Apr 15, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™ – Disaster Recovery, a new cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) service that provides a continuously available recovery site for VMware virtualized data centers. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery is simple to set up, can be self-managed, and is a fraction of the cost and complexity of traditional DR solutions. The service is available immediately in all five vCloud Hybrid Service data centers in the U.S. and U.K.

Built on vSphere®, VMware vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery continuously replicates virtual machines to a virtual data center within vCloud Hybrid Service, with a recovery point objective (RPO) of up to 15 minutes, from just $835 a month including 1TB of storage and standby cloud capacity. The low cost and simplicity of the service means customers can avoid the burden of owning tertiary data centers for DR, and can now continuously protect applications that were previously vulnerable because it was too expensive and complicated to include them in a DR plan.

“Everyone wants enterprise-class disaster recovery, but without the complexity and cost of traditional DR,” said Jerry Sanchez, vice president of Hosting Operations, Planview. “We know how to administer vSphere®, so the simplicity and familiarity of administering vCloud® Hybrid Service™ – Disaster Recovery is just as easy, making this service a natural fit for us. Typically, DR services require expensive professional services to install and maintain. With the VMware solution, the data and applications are simply mirrored in vCloud® Hybrid Service, ready to go whenever trouble strikes, and with the benefits of a cloud-based economic model.”

A New Approach to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
Business continuity is a critical priority for organizations, but only a small fraction of applications are continuously protected because DR solutions can be expensive and complicated. For many businesses, DR involved maintaining exact duplicates of data center hardware configurations, more than doubling costs, and the challenges of maintaining the same configuration meant DR tests were often difficult, highly manual, and infrequently performed. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery offers a simple, automated process for replicating and recovering critical applications and data in a warm standby environment at a fraction of the cost of duplicating infrastructure or maintaining an active tertiary data center.

“We continue to aggressively execute our hybrid cloud vision, delivering capabilities like DR that businesses can use to extend and protect their existing IT investment to the cloud,” said Bill Fathers, senior vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Services Business Unit, VMware. “VMware continues to distinguish itself from other cloud providers by making disaster recovery simple and cost-effective, allowing our customers to use a hybrid cloud approach to deliver business value, without wrestling with operational complexity and incompatibility inherent to other public clouds.”

VMware vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery is a replication and hosting service ideal for businesses with limited or no DR solution in place today, or customers looking to replace a traditional offering with a service provider or one that is managed in-house. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery provides simple and secure asynchronous replication and failover for vSphere virtual environments.

  • Standby capacity on vCloud Hybrid Service
  • Self-service asynchronous replication, failover and failback
  • 15 minutes – 24 hour RPO
  • Initial data seeding by shipping a disk (Offline Data Transfer)
  • Remote management and monitoring, with production-level support
  • $835/month including 1TB of storage, standby compute capacity and two, seven day DR tests

Opportunities for Partners
Partners play a key role of delivering Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to customers. VMware partners can now offer vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery as a value added solution to customers who already have deployed infrastructure, or offer a comprehensive solution for net-new deployments, creating the ability for bigger opportunities, while continuing to deliver value to customers. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service – Disaster Recovery is sold the same way as any other VMware solution, and partners can retain the billing relationship with customers.

“The demand for DR is high because customers are looking for faster, simpler and cheaper options,” said Jason Nash, chief technology officer, Varrow. “With vCloud® Hybrid Service™ – Disaster Recovery, customers no longer have the burden of hardware and software upkeep, and have access to a simple and affordable DRaaS solution, while benefiting from trusted technology and top-class support. A cloud-based DR solution from VMware will be an easy sell for our vSphere® customers looking to deploy a disaster recovery plan within their organization.”

Converged Technology Professionals, Inc. announced today the acquisition of WeVault, LLC, one of the fastest-growing cloud-based disaster recovery solution providers in the Midwest

CHICAGO, IL – April 15, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Converged Technology Professionals’ purchase of WeVault, LLC represents the company’s further commitment to cloud solutions. With more than 100,000 end users supported and an average of 600 new user account signups every month, WeVault is one of the fastest-growing cloud based disaster recovery solutions in the Midwest.

More than half of WeVault’s customers are using the software to backup premise-based ShoreTel installations while others are using it as a tool to compliment disaster recovery planning. Its tremendous popularity, especially among the IT sector, brings a significant community of new clients to the Converged Technology Professionals family. The combination of CT-PROS and WeVault is expected to grow Converged Technology Professionals’ cloud audience by 50 percent in 2014.

WeVault will continue to be independently operated as a separate business. The products, services, and brands will continue to be defined and developed separately with the same commitment to bring solutions that meet the needs of the emerging cloud base.

Backup-Technology: Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery

AUSTIN, TX – April 14, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spanning Cloud Apps, the most trusted provider of data backup and recovery for cloud applications, has released its latest eBook: “Highlighting Data Protection: Preventing Data Loss in Google Apps for Education”. This free resource is designed to help the education community understand the importance of having an automated, secure backup and recovery solution in place to minimize risk of data loss in Google Apps. The eBook provides “moment of truth” stories from K-12 and higher education institutions, along with insights on the data protection limitations of Google Apps. Additionally, it offers tips for choosing the right solution to meet each school’s unique needs.

While millions rely on the collaboration and cost benefits that Google Apps for Education provides, many schools are surprised to learn that important files cannot be restored if data loss is a result of a user error, rather than a Google-wide issue, such as an outage, for example. Without a backup plan, data stored in Google Drive, Sites, Calendar, Contacts and Gmail may be permanently lost if files are accidently deleted, errors occur while migrating to a new device or a colleague overwrites work on a communally-shared file.

“With world class students and faculty, our IT department is tasked with ensuring the protection and availability of The Smith School’s data in order to maintain the high standards the school is known for,” said Chris Gleeson, Manager of Messaging and Collaboration, Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. “Implementing a data protection solution provided us with the assurance that we can protect both the data and processes we have developed over the years.”

As described in the eBook, the four most common types of data protection vulnerabilities in Google Apps for Education are:

  • Human error: The cause of almost 30 percent of all data loss, according to software company Protect Data’s research and the Boston Computing Network, human error most often occurs when users are rushed, tired or confused about the specific functionality of a feature.
  • Hackers and malicious insiders: Not only can hackers use code-cracking algorithms and brute force attacks to acquire passwords, but they can also access data en route to storage if it is not fully encrypted.
  • Sync errors: In the age of multiple devices and accounts, users updating their smartphones, syncing various devices with their Google account or trying to make custom adjustments are more susceptible to data loss.
  • Mistakes in collaboration: Although this is one of the best aspects about the Google Apps platform, it is also the cause of data loss due to misunderstandings, mistakes and miscommunications amongst users with access to the same files at once.

In addition to the peace of mind that comes from knowing critical data is safe in the cloud, a sophisticated backup and recovery solution can also help schools comply with regulations around data storage, retention, security and accessibility.

“With our new eBook, we hope that schools are inspired to implement a solution that allows teachers and students to continue exploring new heights of learning in the cloud,” said Melanie Sommer, VP of Marketing at Spanning. “Armed with this insight, schools will have the opportunity to achieve the peace of mind that comes from knowing their data is safe in the cloud, without worrying that their hard work may be lost forever if an accident occurs.”
