For many companies, disaster recovery (DR) is still a mystery. Many of those companies probably say, "I back up, so why do I need disaster recovery" or "That sounds complex and costly, why bother." But when it comes down to it, today's enterprises are facing an exponential growth in data and applications that must be managed and protected. Cost and complexity force many organizations to settle for backup solutions, simply ignoring the fact that what they really need is comprehensive – but accessible – disaster recovery.
Many aspects of DR remain a mystery; impeding the way to a secure, bullet-proof insurance policy should something go wrong.
OneCloud Recovery can be an entry point for partners and customers who have previously been priced out of the disaster recovery market.
Boston-based hybrid cloud management technology developer OneCloud Software launched its One-Cloud partner program at VMware PEX 2015. The One-Cloud partner program provides MSPs and other solution providers with resources specifically aimed helping grow their business with OneCloud Recovery.
Technologies such as flash caching, cloud disaster recovery, hyper-convergence and object storage came into their own in 2014, prompting an influx of new data storage startups. OneCloud Software aims to provide low-cost cloud storage for disaster recovery of applications with stringent recovery time and recovery point objectives.
This year the cloud has reasserted its dominance. Read about the top data storage trends that emerged in 2014 according to the experts at EnterpriseStorageForum.com. “Using the cloud as a disaster recovery option for storage by enabling failover to the cloud as a secondary data center seems to be growing in popularity”.
OneCloud Software: Automating DR In AWS
Boston-based OneCloud Software in November came out of stealth at the AWS re:Invent conference where it introduced its OneCloud Recovery software for integrating existing data centers with Amazon Web Services.
It unlocks the power of the public cloud as a secure enterprise data center extension for DR. Through its patented Automated cloud Engine (ACE), it auto-discovers a company’s primary infrastructure and sets up a cost optimized replica in the cloud.
OneCloud Software is jumping into cloud disaster recovery with software that runs on VMware hypervisors, creates a virtual data center in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, and handles failover, failback and testing.
OneCloud Software aims to bridge the gap between private data centers and public cloud infrastructure management, by providing the DR “configuration glue” required to map virtualized application infrastructure dependencies in private data centers with compute and storage resources in the public cloud.
OneCloud Software on Tuesday introduced OneCloud Recovery software, which allows the creation of virtual data centers in Amazon Web Services.
OneCloud Recovery represents the bridging the gaps between the data center and the public cloud. Using its Automated Cloud Engine (ACE), the solution automates the creation of virtual data centers in AWS.
OneCloud provides better than acceptable RPOs/RTOs for business-critical applications, and automatically optimizes data movement for the lowest possible pricing within AWS. It is high time someone made the public cloud an integral part of the DR picture. OneCloud Software just did. We expect this product to appeal to companies from mid-size to large enterprises who are looking for cost optimization and simplicity, and the opportunity to protect many more applications at reasonable costs than ever before.
Another local cloud-computing firm is slowly emerging from stealth mode in the Boston area.
The latest cloud computing startup to collect some serious coin from local venture capital firms is OneCloud Software.
