Geminare adds Recovery as a Service to Amazon’s Web Services Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

April 15th 2010, Toronto, ON – Geminare Incorporated today announced the availability of an Amazon Web Services EC2 Command and Control Module (CCM) on its Geminare 2.0 platform.

With the introduction of the Amazon CCM, customers who subscribe to Geminare’s Server Replication 2.0 offering, through its channel partners, can now choose the Amazon EC2 compute platform as their preferred recovery platform. The Amazon CCM not only monitors the underlying resources running the recovery site, but also provides complete control and management to its partners and their customers via Geminare’s Channel Enablement Platform. The launch of the Amazon CCM affords the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) market a single platform choice to deploy, manage and recover mission-critical applications.

Through deploying Geminare Server Replication 2.0 on the Amazon EC2 Platform, Geminare partners can revolutionize the way disaster recovery, business continuity and server replication services are delivered through the Cloud – providing their customers a cost-effective way to manage and monitor their cloud server infrastructure from anywhere, at any time.

“As we worked with partners to launch Recovery as a Service (RaaS) solutions within their Cloud product portfolio, it quickly became clear that they needed a low-touch, high-availability (HA) server replication offering that allowed them to select the destination cloud of their choosing – whether it be Amazon, VMware or their own physical infrastructure. The Amazon CCM is testimony to our ability to meet our partners’ requirements, and an indication of Geminare’s commitment to continue developing our 2.0 Platform to accommodate the needs of our existing and potential new partners, and their end customers.” said Joshua Geist, CEO of Geminare Incorporated.

Geminare’s Server Replication 2.0 provides additional deployment models including physical-to-cloud, cloud-to-cloud and cloud migration capabilities.
