TwinStrata has announced that it is jointly delivering "a highly efficient, cost-effective" solution for the creation and storage of VMware backups with Veeam Software, winner of Best of Show at VMworld 2010.
According to the company, TwinStrata’s CloudArray software, when used in conjunction with Veeam Backup & Replication, gives organizations easy access to secure, highly scalable, pay-as-you-go Cloud Storage for their VMware backups.
TwinStrata’s CloudArray is the first purpose-built software solution to enhance data protection at a substantial cost savings compared to traditional off-site storage, delivering simple, affordable, and secure storage solutions to IT environments.
With this new joint offering from Veeam and TwinStrata, companies using tape systems or disk-to-disk backup for data protection can select CloudArray as the backup target for Veeam Backup & Replication. To ensure data security and privacy, CloudArray encrypts data prior to transporting it to cloud storage. When combined with Veeam Backup & Replication’s advanced deduplication capabilities, the two products offer a high degree of savings for both bandwidth and end point storage requirements.
In addition, CloudArray Compute-Anywhere allows businesses to restore on-site, offsite or in the cloud.
"This combined solution will enable a whole new level of business agility, efficiency and cost management for businesses that need to backup their VMware environments," said Doug Hazelman, senior director, product strategy, Veeam Software. "Together with TwinStrata, we can provide companies with economical off-site storage with all the availability, security and performance characteristics of local data storage – available any time, anywhere."
"We are an agnostic infrastructure services organization that works with multiple vendors to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for each client," said Jason Schuerhoff, vice president of sales, Sublime Solution.
"We often recommend the Veeam and TwinStrata strategy because many of our clients don’t have the ability or flexibility to conduct offsite backups for disaster recovery purposes. However, the combination of these two products lets them back up and replicate their virtual infrastructures into the cloud as if they were local, thereby giving them access to the information at any time and from anywhere. Plus, they avoid the cost associated with co-location infrastructures. Most small and medium sized companies will find this solution pays for itself within 12-18 months," he added.
