This hosted service, developed and patented by leading business continuity provider, Geminare Incorporated, enables Seismic partners to easily sell and deliver enterprise-class continuous availability to the SMB market, through a sophisticated online management and provisioning portal that handles the complete product lifecycle, from engagement and on-boarding of the channel partner and the end user, to quoting, provisioning and final billing requirements.
