ESG Report Concludes Geminare is Changing the Economics of BC/DR

 

ESG Product Brief: “Geminare makes BC/DR highly accessible to organizations where viable solutions were previously unavailable.”

 

January 4th, 2011, Toronto, Canada: Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading IT analyst and business strategy firm, world-renowned for forward-looking market intelligence and analysis, has released a Product Brief on the Geminare Recovery as a Service (RaaS) portfolio.  In this report, ESG Senior Analyst Lauren Whitehouse examines the growing need for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery solutions within the SMB/SME and MSP markets, and hones in on the ESG “Bigger Truth”: that Geminare’s failback capability is unique in the market among auto failover solutions and thereby distances the company from seemingly economically competitive BC/DR offerings. 

 

Whitehouse refers to a recent ESG Study, 2010 Data Protection Trendsas validation of the growing need for BC/DR solutions, stating: “ESG research revealed that nearly three-quarters (74%) of respondents to a recent survey indicated that their organization would experience significant adverse business impact with as little as three hours or less of downtime for tier-1 applications.”  Whitehouse comments that “this generation’s social conditioning for immediate gratification makes continuous availability and access to information an expectation.”  Still, Whitehouse notes, “even with more aggressive recovery time and point objectives organizations are reluctant to adopt high availability and failover solutions due to perceived complexity and high capital and operating costs.”

 

In response to the market needs and concerns, she observes that the “introduction of cloud computing and virtualization [is] changing this dynamic by positively impacting the feasibility and economics of implementing BC/DR” and points specifically to Geminare as having “recognized and addressed this opportunity several years ago by developing a compelling Recovery as a Service solution, when virtualization and cloud were just taking hold.”  

 

Joshua Geist, Geminare’s CEO comments, “A hallmark of the ESG Product Brief is its ‘Bigger Truth,’ section, and I’m delighted that Ms. Whitehouse’s analysis of our BC/DR offerings led her to conclude that Geminare’s unique ability to failback as easily as we failover is the bigger truth.  We know that our easy, economical failback capability is what sets us apart in the market for MSPs looking to differentiate their cloud offerings, and it’s affirming to see leading companies, such as ESG, reach the same conclusion.”

 

Ms. Whitehouse states that ESG research has found that “improving disaster recovery capabilities is the top spending priority within data protection spending and that BC/DR is a function that companies are willing to invest in over the next 12 to 18 months.”  Geist adds, “we’re seeing this trend play out in the market in major ways, specifically with our large base of medium and enterprise MSPs as more and more companies are adopting our service, thanks to the stellar efforts of our many channel partners worldwide, including major telecom partners, leading hosting providers and top ranked MSPs.” 

 

Ms. Whitehouse concludes, “IT investment justification typically focuses on mitigating risk, saving time, and saving money. A Geminare BC/DR solution can deliver value related to all three, especially over DIY [do-it-yourself] BC/DR implementations—a compelling reason for IT organizations and prospective service provider partners to take a closer look at Geminare’s solutions.”
