Data Strategy, a trusted leader of technology solutions, announced today the launch of SurePath for EMC® Avamar®, a service offering that helps customers evaluate the benefits of deploying Avamar deduplication backup software. SurePath is a new line of service offerings designed to allow customers to more closely evaluate infrastructure changes and is designed to test, in a controlled subset of a production environment, a complete solution while limiting business exposure.
Data Strategy's SurePath for Avamar service is intended to assist clients in maximizing their storage utilization by using proven technologies and methodologies developed by their industry-leading professional services team that leveraged their EMC Proven Professional certifications for Avamar. Data Strategy utilizes a systematic approach in evaluating the effectiveness of technology in meeting business demands by analyzing information repositories, infrastructure and business requirements. SurePath for Avamar Service demonstrates the potential technical and financial benefits associated with deployment of Avamar technology within a client’s actual environment and assists in refining broader adoption. When applied in conjunction with Data Strategy's SRM services, a client can be provided with a comprehensive tiered storage and recovery architecture for a distributed private cloud environment.
"With Data Strategy's SurePath for Avamar Services offering, our customers can obtain immediate and tangible results associated with implementing EMC Avamar deduplication backup software which enables fast, secure backup and recovery for their VMware environments, remote offices, and data center LANs," said Bill Hussain, Vice President Professional Services - Data Strategy
Data Strategy, an EMC Velocity² partner, selected Avamar for its initial SurePath offering because backup solutions are essential to businesses, but are commonly perceived as difficult to manage. In addition, new backup solution deployment is often viewed as an overwhelmingly complex undertaking. With SurePath for Avamar, these concerns are addressed with a demonstration that reflects the effectiveness of the solution within the customer’s environment and the inherent simplicity of Avamar deployment, enabling effortless ingestion of backup schedules, groups, and policy information from major backup solutions. Sure Path for Avamar provides the opportunity for customers to evaluate the extraordinary benefits EMC Avamar deduplication backup software brings to backup and recovery services and exposes them to Data Strategy's comprehensive understanding of enterprise environments.
