Stock Symbol: NYSE: IRM

 

Geminare expands award-winning Business Continuity and Virtual Server Rapid Recovery solutions, broadening global Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity markets
 
 
May 2nd, 2011, Toronto, ON – Geminare Incorporated, a recognized leader in the Recovery as a Service market, today announced a revolutionary addition to its Cloud-based Data Protection Suite which, in conjunction with Iron Mountain’s (NYSE:IRM) LiveVault® offering, allows customers and prospects to take advantage of the synergies between the LiveVault® service and the new Rapid Recovery and Business Continuity for LiveVault® functionality.
 
Joshua B. Geist, CEO of Geminare Incorporated, stated, “Iron Mountain is one of the most trusted brands in the world, and we’re delighted to be aligned with them for the Business Continuity and Rapid Recovery for LiveVault products. The company protects the data of tens of thousands of servers around the world; now, every one of those servers can be further protected with advanced data and disaster recovery services. Both are absolutely ideal extensions to LiveVault customers.” Mr. Geist added, “With this expansion to the LiveVault portfolio, we are changing market perspectives about backup services being a traditional operational expense. It is now seen as a critical component in a complete DR solution.” 
 
Mark Kaufman, Iron Mountain’s senior vice president of engineering, concurred: “The Geminare solution fills a real market need and we are pleased that they can pair their solutions with LiveVault to bring extra value to our customers.”
 
David Chapa, senior analyst ESG Global, added, “Geminare is addressing one of the long-standing challenges for companies both large and small – how to quickly recover from an unplanned outage to avoid further disruption to their business and revenue. The real problem areas, such as preparing the server, knowing the configuration and not only quickly restoring the data but also the application – are all taken care of by Geminare’s enabling rapid recovery.”
 
Storage Strategies NOW founding analyst, Deni Connor, added, “Geminare is driving the shift in disaster recovery solutions from 'exclusive' to 'accessible' with the addition of VSRR to their cloud-based portfolio. Finally, there is an affordable, mid-market option between traditional online backup and full-scale real-time replication that lets customers recover quickly and at a very low price point.”
 
Business Continuity for LiveVault®, enabled by Geminare, delivers real-time replication of mission-critical data and applications to a replica server in the Cloud, allowing LiveVault® customers to ensure business continues as usual following planned or unplanned system outages. The Business Continuity for LiveVault® disaster recovery solution is based on Geminare’s award-winning Cloud Recovery service. Integrated with the LiveVault® online server backup offering, it brings customers a more efficient and cost-effective cloud-based server recovery solution.
 
Virtual Server Rapid Recovery for LiveVault®, enabled by Geminare, further provides the LiveVault® customer base with a unique offering that dramatically reduces the complexity, cost and time associated with server recovery post-failure. Rapid Recovery for LiveVault® links a protected LiveVault® server to a standby restore-ready server in a secure Cloud, providing the ability to quickly restore data and applications following a server outage, and to fully leverage existing Iron Mountain LiveVault® implementations with no additional capital expenditures.
 
Business Continuity for LiveVault® and Rapid Recovery for LiveVault® are available immediately, and customers can activate either or both services by contacting their local Iron Mountain representative, or by visiting: www.rapidrecoveryforlivevault.com.
