Geminare Named HP 2014 AllianceOne Partner of the Year

Geminare brings HP Helion–enhanced Recovery as a Service to HP’s Global Channel Partner Ecosystem


June 12th, 2014, PALO ALTO, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV – Geminare, the #1 ranked global leader in Recovery as a Service (RaaS) enablement, today announced that it has been honored as recipient of HP’s  2014 AllianceOne Partner of the Year Award for Converged Cloud.

Geminare’s HP Helion-specific enhancement of its RaaS portfolio and award-winning Cloud Management Platform (CMP) for RaaS Providers has enabled the HP Cloud infrastructure to become a dominant platform leader for Service Providers in the delivery of RaaS solutions globally.  Geminare’s Cloud Recovery on the HP CloudSystem offering is available as part of the HP CloudSystem Ready program and the HP Helion portfolio.  Service Providers now have the ability to leverage the OpenStack standardized core within HP Helion as well as customized HP infrastructure designed for delivery of Cloud services to launch world-class RaaS programs to their customer base.

“Congratulations to Geminare for being selected as the HP AllianceOne Partner of the Year for HP Converged Cloud,” said Doug Oathout, vice president, Global Marketing, SMB and Alliances, Enterprise Marketing, HP. “Geminare has demonstrated outstanding leadership in RaaS by developing innovative cloud-based data protection solutions for its customers, paving the way for more agile business models within the Service Provider ecosystem.”

The global RaaS market is experiencing massive growth with TechNavio, for example, projecting 56% CAGR and a $5.7B market by 2018 and demand from channel partners continuing to escalate rapidly.  The Geminare solution, available as an enablement program for HP partners and through the HP CloudSystem Ready program, allows channel partners to make the transition to a Recovery as a Service model rapidly, shedding the costly, dated, and legacy build-it approach to DR/BC along the way and to evolve into value-added Service Providers immediately.

HP Helion is positioned as the next wave of cloud computing: an open, secure, and agile approach to hybrid cloud, offering a comprehensive portfolio of products and services that lets channel partners, ISVs, and cloud service providers guide their customers’ cloud journey in the new style of IT; it is an ideal fit with Geminare’s Cloud Recovery, which is widely acknowledged as the most mature, proven, and accepted cloud-based offering for the medium and enterprise BC/DR market with service seamlessly delivered from a Service Provider’s cloud.

Available in 80 HP data centers worldwide as well as countless Service Provider clouds globally, Geminare’s Cloud Recovery on HP CloudSystem is available to the entire HP channel partner ecosystem and can accommodate customers ranging from global enterprises to SMBs.  Innovative solutions such as “globally protected, cost-effective, around the world BC/DR” can now be extended to the HP channel partner customer base, helping HP partners better position themselves as leading-edge, innovative, and best-in-class providers.

“We are extremely proud to have been selected as the winner and recipient of the 2014 HP AllianceOne Partner of the Year Award,” said Joshua Geist, CEO, Geminare. “We look forward to working closely with the HP channel partner community to help them leverage the phenomenal opportunity that exists today for all who embrace Recovery as a Service delivered from the HP Helion Cloud.”
