Hostway's global infrastructure, combined with their proven billing, provisioning and customer service tools make the process of bringing an advanced solution such as Tilana to market much easier than it would be to develop the infrastructure on our own
Chicago, Illinois (Vocus) January 29, 2008
Hostway Corporation , the global Web hosting leader, is pleased to announce a new partnership with San Diego-based Tilana Systems Corporation. Under the terms of the partnership, Hostway will provide managed hosting services for Tilana’s storage platform, including system architecture and monitoring, billing, provisioning, and customer relationship management tools. Also, Hostway is now offering Tilana’s unique data management solution through its Gate.com hosting brand.
Tilana Reserve is a premium online data management service that includes encrypted CDP (continuous data protection), folder and file sync across multiple computers, and automatic unlimited versioning, all through a secure and Web accessible Personal Digital Archive™. The service goes beyond the basic online backup-archive-retrieval model, first by providing the best implementation of each component, but further by also including an innovative combination of features, functionality, and pricing.
“Hostway’s global infrastructure, combined with their proven billing, provisioning and customer service tools make the process of bringing an advanced solution such as Tilana to market much easier than it would be to develop the infrastructure on our own,” said Joe Austin, Tilana CEO. “Instead of investing time, money, and human resources on managing infrastructure, we can focus on delivering the most powerful data management application in the industry.”
In addition to providing infrastructure and customer support services to Tilana, Hostway is also marketing the data protection service through its Gate.com hosting brand, under the name GateVault. The service features a unique pricing structure called PayOnceTM. For a $2 per GB one-time fee, subscribers can store any personal or business media, whether it’s a backup copy or offloaded as an archive. Ongoing access to the remotely-stored data is an unchanging $14.95 per month, regardless of how much space is consumed in the data center, and additional storage space is always available at the same PayOnce $2 per GB. GateVault launched in December and is fully available to both current and non-Gate.com customers.
"Our customers are accumulating data at an astonishing rate, and the need to protect and manage that valuable information is also growing” said John Enright, Hostway’s vice president of marketing and business development. “Since they already entrust us with the storage and management of their website data, providing an advanced tool such as GateVault to manage the rest of their critical data is a natural extension of the value that we provide to our customers”
The desktop software is a free download, installs in about a minute and requires little configuration. Users can enable an unlimited number of computers and selectively protect and synchronize files and folders on those computers using a single GateVault account.
After initial all-file upload, data transmissions containing any saved changes to protected files are quickly transferred to the data center where they are stored in the user’s personal remote storage for as long as needed. Version histories are immediately available through the desktop software or through the Web interface, which can be securely accessed from most PC and smart phone browsers.
