Geminare Announces the First Cloud-Based Storage Solution to Deliver Continuous Server Availability to the SMB Market
MARCH 10TH, 2009 TORONTO, CANADA Geminare Incorporated introduces the first cloud-based storage service to deliver continuous server availability to Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMBs) through a global network of authorized channel partners. This 100% channel-focused solution leverages the near infinite storage of Amazon’s Cloud Storage Service to deliver robust archiving while providing real-time data replication and continuous server availability in one integrated platform.
SMBs gain access to highly scalable, reliable, fast, and cost-effective storage, with the significant and unique ability to continue working without disruption during scheduled maintenance, local server downtime or an unplanned outage. Geminare gives channel partners and their SMB clients, the capacity to add these capabilities on the fly, without investing in new infrastructure, staff, or software.
“Clients can automatically compress and archive selected directories and files into the Amazon Cloud for up to 7 years, and pull down saved, deleted or archived versions at any time through Geminare’s secure portal,” said Joshua Geist, President and CEO of Geminare Incorporated. “This archiving capability enables SMBs to meet the strictest compliance standards, easily and without specialized expertise while protecting their onsite data from accidental deletions, modifications or corruption. Real-time replication ensures that, in the case of an unplanned outage, users are instantly redirected to a mirror version of their fileserver, which is immediately available at a secure Top Tier data center. Business continues as usual.”
Geminare’s Cloud Storage Service is available as a stand-alone managed service or as an add-on to Geminare’s Business Continuity Service – for SMBs with specific archiving needs.
