Nearly 3 out of 4 Enterprises Evaluating Recovery as a Service, Reports ESG Geminare Product Brief

ESG Product Brief: “Build, Buy, or Geminare” highlights the growing trend of Cloud-based Disaster Recovery and how Geminare’s patented RaaS technology powers many of the world’s cloud recovery services.


June 3rd, 2013, Palo Alto, CA – Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading IT analyst and business strategy firm world-renowned for forward-looking market intelligence and analysis, has recently released an industry report focusing on Geminare’s unique, patented technology, its growing success in market and the company’s notable list of global channel partners.

In the ESG Product Brief titled, “Cloud Recovery? Build, Buy, or Geminare,” Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst, highlights BC/DR market trends and looks into the critical role that Geminare’s patented RaaS platform is playing by enabling global channel partners to leverage their IaaS and PaaS platforms to immediately deliver Recovery as a Service offerings.

Buffington, a lauded expert in data-protection technologies, highlights a key turning point in the approach that traditional vendors are taking in terms of offering cloud-based data-protection solutions. While past go-to-market options were limited to either building it yourself or buying the technology, Buffington explores a third option that a growing number of world-class vendors are turning to: Geminare’s white-labeled Cloud Recovery solution—services based on its patented data protection core technology. The Geminare offerings are complementary to, and completely integrated with, a vendor’s existing DR solution portfolio “without entirely displacing their on-premises partnerships and relationships”—an instrumental factor in maintaining market presence. Buffington goes on to applaud Geminare’s already extensive presence, noting, “Geminare’s list of partners may represent more protected data sockets than many other cloud-based data protection offerings,” concluding, “Geminare’s success in establishing those partnerships is impressive.”
