Bechtle AG adds Geminare’s hosted Business Continuity Service to direct sales division, Bechtle Direct.



Stolberg, GERMANY JULY 29, 2009 Geminare Incorporated this week announced Neckarsulm-based partner Bechtle AG, now offers Geminare's hosted Business Continuity Service through their catalogue and online direct sales division, Bechtle Direct.

With over 121,000 weekly visitors to its online store, Bechtle Direct will leverage its presence in 11 countries to promote Geminare's SaaS-based Continuous Availability platform to Small and Medium sized businesses (SMBs) across the EU.

This Business continuity offering trumps current simple online backup solutions in the market with a highly advanced and effective high-availability solution, previously only available on custom built enterprise-class dedicated hardware and software systems. This service is easily deployed, and offers set-up within 24 hours, with no capital investment.

The Bechtle Direct agreement is part of a broader reseller partnership with IT giant Bechtle AG, the most respected and well known system house and IT e-commerce provider in the EU. The agreement reinforces Geminare's commitment to expand within the EU through a network of local support and regional data centres to service growing demand.

Effective August 2009, Bechtle Direct will offer its SMB customers a host-based system that ensures their critical technology infrastructure, including all Windows based file and application servers, operates uninterrupted, with continuous access to both data and applications, even in the case of a critical system failure.

The offering includes:
• SaaS-based, data protection via real-time WAN replication of Windows file servers, database and applications servers for Microsoft Exchange, SQL, IIS as well as Oracle and Blackberry
• Continuous data protection that provides instant data recovery in the event of isolated data corruption episodes, from a top tier data centre in Aache
• Application availability via fully automated failover and failback for all supported servers with no onsite hardware required
• Disaster recovery site compliance through fully automated, scheduled tests of an organization's disaster recovery system without disrupting the production environment or existing data protection
• Provisioning and deployment in days from start of customer management, replication and reporting

"Through Bechtle Direct, it's easier than ever for SMBs to realize Continuous System Availability based on a powerful, quick to implement, flexible and scalable technology. By eliminating downtimes and breakdown costs, the constant server operation automatically makes a contribution to stabilise the business activities", says Jörg Öynhausen, Managing Director of Bechtle Remote Services GmbH.

"The Geminare platform lets Bechtle Direct deliver business continuity as a service to their customers in 11 countries and 6 languages across the EU, opening up a highly sophisticated and powerful technology in a simple and accessible model," says Joshua Geist, CEO of Geminare Incorporated, Worldwide.
