Geminare and Hosting.com Leverage the Cloud to Revolutionize the BC/DR Industry

 
Hosting.com’s cloud-enabled Server Replication service
rapidly gains traction in the mid-market as a cost-effective solution
 
 
March 7th, 2011, Toronto, Canada: Geminare, a pioneer in the Recovery as a Service (RaaS) space, and Hosting.com, a global provider of Cloud Hosting and Recovery Services, today announced a milestone as Hosting.com’s Server Replication services surpassed forecasted first-year customer adoption rates in less than 9 months.
 
Hosting.com added Geminare’s Server Replication solution to its suite of availability and BC/DR solutions to bring customers continuous availability of their mission-critical servers and applications. Hosting.com offers both cloud-based and physical server replication between its network of connected datacenters.  Hosting.com’s Server Replication boasts Real Time Objectives (RTO) measured in single-digit minutes, and leverages Geminare’s industry-unique Hub portal capabilities to deliver single-click, rapid auto-failover and failback.
 
Hosting.com’s Server Replication customers are primarily mid-market accounts, and come from a variety of industries including Finance, Retail, Healthcare and Software Vendors.  The customers share many of the following characteristics: require access to critical data at all times; previously limited access to traditional “build-it” dedicated BC/DR solutions; enhancing existing tape back-up practices with introduction of real-time application availability; first exposure to the economic benefits of cloud services.
 
Jim Schott, CTO of Cooper River Financial, a US-based capital markets consulting firm, commented that he has “every confidence in the service because the testing was quite severe.” During the set up and testing phase in August 2010, Cooper River deliberately disabled its SQL server during a database transaction - without informing anyone in advance. Three hundred of the 400-record transactions had been processed, when the server was taken down.  Server Replication failed over automatically, and seamlessly completed the remaining 100 transactions while running off of the cloud.  There was no service interruption and no data loss, confirming the high value inherent in the service.

Joshua Geist, Geminare’s CEO stated, “Hosting.com’s ‘Always On’ philosophy aligns 100% with Geminare’s commitment to cloud-enabled, continuous application availability.   From the start, the Hosting.com team has been proactive and enthusiastic, and has provided the solution to more companies than we had anticipated – in a very short time frame.  We’re delighted to have such an innovative, quality organization by our side as we strive to make BC/DR solutions an affordable staple of every business, large or small.” 
 
Eric Hutts, Area VP for Hosting.com, stated, “The addition of Server Replication to our cloud hosting and availability services has had an immediate impact on our business and client acquisition strategies. Customers look to Hosting.com for enterprise-level, cloud-enabled recovery and this solution allows us to meet their RTO, security and failback needs instantly.” Referring to the healthy customer adoption rate, Mr. Hutts noted, “Geminare continues to prove itself to be a strategic and highly-engaged partner and regularly helps us identify acquisition targets for this and other BC/DR solutions. The greatest early sign of success is that our customers are not only adopting the solution, but they are also regularly referring other businesses to the solution.”
 
Hosting.com is one of the first hosting providers to present its customers with a connected datacenter network – providing Cloud and Managed hosting redundancy across multiple, geographically-dispersed datacenters while eliminating single points of failure.
 
Powered by Geminare’s Cloud Recovery, Hosting.com’s Server Replication solution ensures secure availability of mission-critical applications by replicating the application environment from one Hosting.com datacenter to a secondary Hosting.com datacenter or from the customer premise to a Hosting.com datacenter, thereby meeting regulatory requirements and reducing the financial risk of not being able to reach clients, suppliers and employees during a system failure.
 
For an in-depth BC/DR discussion featuring experts from Hosting.com and Geminare, you can listen to the pre-recorded Real-Time Replication for Disaster Recovery webinar held in February.
