Geminare Expands Patent Portfolio with Second Issue of USPTO Patent
for its DRaaS Cloud Management Platform Further Elevating
its Leadership Position within the DRaaS Market.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – April 9, 2015. Geminare, the #1 ranked leader in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) enablement, today announced that on April 7th, 2015 the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued it US Patent #9,002,786, “System and method for providing data and application continuity in a computer system.” This patent, the second USPTO Patent to be issued to Geminare for its DRaaS Cloud Management Platform (CMP), further solidifies Geminare’s leadership position in the DRaaS market and reinforces the ever increasing importance of DRaaS intellectual property needed to support Cloud Service Providers and the global market.
A recent survey conducted by 451 Research, and commissioned by Microsoft, highlights the significant opportunity that Cloud Service Providers are presented with by building their Cloud portfolios around RaaS and DRaaS solutions. The report confirmed that the top two most important areas of focus, and the #1 and 2 spending priorities, for global corporations are ‘Backup and Recovery’ and ‘Disaster Recovery/Site Recovery’—all technologies that make up the DRaaS capabilities within Geminare’s CMP.
Geminare’s Cloud Management Platform, which was recently highlighted by Gartner Inc. as a cornerstone technology within Geminare’s IP portfolio, enabled Geminare to be recognized as a “Gartner Cool Vendors in Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery Management.” The designation recognizes the robust management infrastructure for the delivery of cloud-based DRaaS via provider partners as one of the most mature CMP offerings.
Geminare continues to be at the forefront of RaaS technology evolution and development as this patent award comes just weeks after Geminare announced its latest major platform expansion by enabling full support for DRaaS within the public Cloud through a collaboration with Google Inc. to launch Geminare DRaaS integrated with Google Cloud Platform. This integration has enabled major Service Providers to leverage Google Cloud Storage and Google Compute Engine for their customers DRaaS.
“As the RaaS market continues to explode, service providers are presented with various DRaaS options regarding how to enable their customers,” said Joshua Geist, Geminare President and CEO. “The issuance of a second patent on our DRaaS CMP, with other patents pending, and combined with strong industry recognition, helps to serve our partners and customers though differentiated offerings. As one of the first in market with DRaaS, Geminare continues to innovate and lead with future-focused capabilities and technologies.”

As projected by TechNavio, a leading market research and opportunities analyst firm, in their January 2015 in-depth market assessment, the Recovery as a Service (RaaS) market is valued at US$5.7B million by 2018.
