Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Bit Refinery, a provider of cloud infrastructure as a service, today announced that it is offering disaster recovery (DR) as a service. The new solution delivers unparalleled, real-time cloud DR services, enabling businesses of all sizes to cost effectively protect production applications both to the cloud and in the cloud. Bit Refinery’s cloud-based disaster recovery service is powered by Zerto’s award-winning hypervisor-based solution, Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR).
“This new offering makes cloud-based DR more viable to numerous organizations because it is now simpler and more affordable than ever before,” said Brandon Hieb, managing partner, Bit Refinery. “Zerto’s hypervisor-based solution is very cost-effective and enables us to deliver all the benefits of cloud automation while ensuring mission-critical applications stay protected and available. We have had significant interest, with several customers already signing on for the service.”
Bit Refinery’s Cloud DR offering allows companies to choose DR-as-a-Service (DRaaS), protecting on-premise applications to the cloud, and/or in-cloud DR, protecting applications deployed in the cloud and replicated to a secondary Bit Refinery cloud data center. Bit Refinery's use of VMware® vCloud Director™ allows visibility into protected vApps/Virtual Machines (VMs) and recovered VMs through a single pane of glass.
“We recently selected Bit Refinery as our provider for a replication solution for VMware,” said Dave Tallbut, Director of IT Services, PavelComm. “The near real time replication solution has already proven to be very effective and easy to use. We are particularly happy with the journal feature that tracks changes, allowing us to rollback or restore a VM to a previous time. This is particularly valuable as it further safeguards customers from additional viruses.”
Protecting mission-critical applications is not only about copying data. Bit Refinery’s DR service ensures application recovery, protects from logical errors and frequently tests failover to ensure companies can recover when needed. With Bit Refinery’s DR as a Service, companies can replicate from any type of storage to any type of storage because the Zerto technology is software only and hardware-agnostic.
