Geminare's Rapid Recovery Empowers Online Backup Industry

By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor

 Backup and recovery processes are required for every company, especially those which have central database systems. An effective backup plan is needed to ensure service continuity in networks and offer greater stability and operating system and other software.

Geminare has launched Virtual Server Rapid Recovery (Rapid Recovery), a cloud-based online backup service that is specifically designed to dramatically streamline the manual processes associated with system restoration when using online backup services.

According to a press release, Rapid Recovery uses a secure, client-side connection to maintain a Restore-Ready Standby Server in the Cloud. This solution offers cost-effective recovery of production systems to a secure cloud environment by leveraging a customer’s existing backup solution and it is compatible with virtually all business-caliber online backup services. When a failure occurs involving a protected onsite server, the customer engages the standby virtual server to complete a restore of their production environment to the cloud.

Joshua B. Geist, Geminare’s CEO, said that Rapid Recovery will appeal to any company that today relies on online backup to protect their data, especially those that have endured the time-consuming, laborious process of restoring a failed server. With Rapid Recovery enabled, companies can initiate system restorations with the click of a mouse.

He added that instead of tying up IT resources for hours or days to restore failed systems, businesses can rely on Rapid Recovery to do a full system restoration in a fraction of the time, and with minimal involvement.

 With installation of Rapid Recovery, companies can quickly and easily restore operations in the event of system failure or disaster recovery event, while preventing the loss of critical data through online backup solutions.

Prior to this, Geminare introduced VNOC 2.0- Virtual Network Operations technology, which provides a complete, feature-rich Remote Management and Monitoring (RMM) platform. VNOC 2.0 offers all levels of users, from Channel Partners to customers, with a completely automated, service-level management toolset that includes network monitoring, alerting and change management reporting; all with virtually zero footprint.

Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies and the Founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace said Geminare is building on its proven cloud-based recovery and business continuity capabilities to give these providers a highly scalable, online backup service that can cost-effectively satisfy the needs of this segment of the market.

In other company news, TMCnet reported that Geminare announced a revolutionary addition to its Cloud-based Data Protection Suite which, in conjunction with Iron Mountain’s (News - Alert) LiveVault offering, allows customers and prospects to take advantage of the synergies between the LiveVault service and the new Rapid Recovery and Business Continuity for LiveVault(R) functionality.
