Simply Continuous shares Data Domain's commitment to providing highly stable and efficient storage and recovery capabilities to users without dependency on tape and all of its associated complexities
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
Simply Continuous today announced the availability of a new offsite data protection managed service called Data Protect Vault for Data Domain. The solution, offered by Simply Continuous, provides an affordable and simple service to protect and recover business critical data during unforeseen events such as power outages, facility problems and natural disasters. The service allows virtually any company, from growing companies to F1000 enterprises, to eliminate tape from their backup operations and reliably move data offsite for disaster recovery purposes. Savvion, an early customer of the joint solution, exemplifies the power that Data Protect Vault for Data Domain can deliver.
All companies face increasing demands of protecting and recovering their data in the event of a disruption. As data sets grow past one terabyte, the options to move data offsite become limited and more expensive. However, with the use of Data Domain systems the data reduction rates achieved on backup images make it very effective to securely replicate the deduplicated data offsite to a Simply Continuous datacenter.
"As a Data Domain service provider partner, we're able to offer customers like Savvion a service to get the data protection and recovery they need at a subscription price that fits their budget," said Tom Frangione, President and CEO of Simply Continuous. "This solution offers customers an easy way to transition off of tape and provide a path to true IT disaster recovery without incurring the costs to procure and manage new capital equipment."
"Simply Continuous shares Data Domain's commitment to providing highly stable and efficient storage and recovery capabilities to users without dependency on tape and all of its associated complexities," said Beth White, Vice President of Marketing for Data Domain. "The Simply Continuous Data Protect Vault for Data Domain service leverages our respective technologies to deliver a best-of-breed offering that can be deployed rapidly and reliably as a simple, low-cost service. Data Protect Vault for Data Domain removes the inefficiencies of legacy tape and big disk infrastructure. This gives users a data protection model that makes sense economically while dramatically enhancing data and system recoverability capabilities."
A Dependable Solution for Savvion:
Savvion, like many growing companies, used tape technology to backup their data. When Savvion first addressed the requirement for remote data protection, tape was the only viable approach to meet their budget and fit the needs of their company. However, as Savvion grew, so did their dependency on company data. When their data protection and recovery requirements changed, their Director of Information Technology was tasked to find a better solution.
"Data Protect Vault for Data Domain allowed me to finally migrate off of tape backup without increasing my IT costs," said Vincent Kenny, Director of Information Technology at Savvion. "I couldn't justify an ongoing investment in an antiquated and unreliable technology like tape. That's when I turned to Simply Continuous and Data Domain to provide offsite data backup and recovery. With Data Protect Vault, Savvion's information is protected in the event of a disaster and I can recover the data more quickly than I ever could with tape."
Using Data Domain's industry leading deduplication storage systems, customer information is simultaneously deduplicated and securely replicated offsite to a Simply Continuous datacenter where it is readily available whenever and wherever customers need it. In the event of an outage, the customer can recover individual files remotely or, in the event of a site disaster, request a replacement Data Domain appliance to be shipped to the recovery site. Key features of the service include:
- Easy integration with all Data Domain appliances
- Data backup and protection without the use of tape technology
- Remote site replication
- Recovery to existing or alternate site
- 24x7 customer support
- Subscription-based pricing
"We're honored to be selected as a Data Domain service provider partner," said Tom Frangione, President and CEO of Simply Continuous. "Data Domain's deduplication and replication technology is unsurpassed and as an integral part to our service, customers like Savvion benefit by providing them a way to advance their recovery capabilities. Data Protect Vault for Data Domain addresses the market demand for a managed offsite data backup and recovery service that's cost effective and non-disruptive to implement, and maps to our company's focus on providing clients with unsurpassed IT disaster recovery services."
