Synergy Global Solutions selects Geminare Incorporated for First Cloud-Based Storage Service to Deliver Zero System Downtime to SMBs
July 7th, 2009 Toronto, Canada Synergy Global Solutions the second largest Managed Services Provider in the United States based on the number of managed seats, has chosen Geminare’s cloud-based storage service for their Small and Medium Sized Business (SMBs) clients. The solution combines the power of Amazon’s S3 data storage infrastructure with real-time data replication to deliver robust archiving and high availability in one integrated platform.
“With this service we can offer our 75,000 managed Desktops access to highly scalable, reliable, fast, and cost-effective storage, with the significant and unique ability to continue working without disruption during an unplanned outage or scheduled maintenance,” said Clark Crook, President, Synergy Global Solutions. “Best of all, our clients have 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. “In addition, because the Cloud Storage service is based on the Geminare Continuous Availability Architecture, clients can failover their servers and run directly from the cloud when needed”.
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.
