Recovery Point Systems Announces Acquisition of Geminare

Investment Secures Recovery Point as a Leader in Disaster Recovery + Resiliency Orchestration

GERMANTOWN, MARYLAND – November 1, 2021Recovery Point Systems, an Abry Partners company and a leader in cloud-based business resilience services based in Germantown, Md., acquired Geminare, a global resiliency, application and data protection innovator headquartered in Toronto, Canada. Geminare, one of the first industry innovators in orchestration and automation, brings maturity, capability and reliability across virtually all disaster recovery, business continuity and DRaaS technologies with its globally recognized Resiliency Management Platform (RMP).

The Geminare acquisition will provide Recovery Point with differentiated and market-leading technology that substantially reduces recovery times and manual orchestration while delivering predictable and reliable resiliency capabilities across private, public cloud, and hybrid deployments. Named the “manager of managers” of IT resilience orchestration technology, Geminare’s platform helps leading enterprise organizations automate their entire resiliency footprint from applications and infrastructure to drift management and cyber resiliency. Geminare’s platform was ranked an industry leader in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for DRaaS.

“Traditional providers don’t incorporate cross platform or heterogeneous capabilities like the Resiliency Management Platform which places Geminare in a class by themselves,” noted Tony Rossabi, CEO of Recovery Point Group Holding Company. “Geminare provides true automated application resilience, which is what the marketplace needs. In addition, the platform allows Recovery Point to expand its offerings and enhance its DR solutions. We look forward to working with the Geminare team and expanding the exceptional business they’ve built.”

The Resiliency Management Platform, or RMP, is a portfolio of highly advanced resiliency management and control solutions, designed to manage application availability, system and server resiliency, service automation as well as cyber application resiliency delivered through custom-built machine learning models, all within a tightly integrated framework. The RMP is an industry-leading, multi-patented and proven platform that offers enterprise organizations the ability to manage, deliver and consistently report on their resiliency footprint with uniquely enhanced RTO capabilities. It is the only multi-tenanted, multi-tiered platform that was purposefully built to engage, manage and deliver successful orchestration solutions to enterprise environments and enable global service providers.

“We’re excited to join the Recovery Point Systems team, a long time partner and leader in the marketplace,” said Joshua Geist, CEO of Geminare. “With the investment capabilities of Recovery Point, the Resiliency Management Platform has the ability to expand and accelerate into new market opportunities and deliver these powerful capabilities to a broader set of clients.”

The synergy between Recovery Point’s resiliency expertise and Geminare’s world-class software innovation and delivery capabilities will positively influence Recovery Point’s strategy of continued convergence around connectivity, automation, and integration with the goal of continuing to serve existing clients and expanding to new enterprise clients globally. The acquisition puts Recovery Point Systems in the unique position of a leading disaster recovery solutions provider with its own cutting-edge resiliency software platform.

The Geminare Resiliency Management Platform remains the most patented resiliency platform in the market today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Enables enterprises to manage their IT environment on any cloud or platform in a secure, managed and affordable way within a single web interface managed and affordable way within a single web interface

September 12, 2019 09:59 AM Eastern Daylight Time

NORWALK, Conn. –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:FTR) has expanded its business services with the launch of Frontier® Cloud Managed Solutions, a new offering that enables enterprises to benefit from cloud native automation, elasticity and agility with more transparent and right-sized cloud IT consumption and billing models.

The new Cloud Managed IT Solutions can be used as a fully managed service or through a self-service portal and has a simple, flexible billing model that includes committed use discounts and utility pricing.

“Frontier’s Cloud Managed IT Solutions are a complete and flexible multi-cloud delivery platform that brings business customers a reliable, consistent and unified cloud IT operations experience,” said Daniel Peiretti, Frontier’s Senior Vice President of Products & Marketing. “Our system leverages thousands of cutting-edge computing assets to provide customers with managed services and integrated commercial offerings, including disaster recovery as a service and security as a service.”

Added Peiretti, “Our fully automated and integrated tools deliver a fully functional environment that goes beyond a secondary application environment, allowing end users to maintain the same privileges and access as in the production environment.”

To ensure that enterprises receive the full benefits of a multi-cloud environment, Frontier delivers its Cloud Managed IT Solutions services in three stages. The first supports customers migrating from a physical or virtualized traditional IT environment to a cloud IT environment that can be hosted on any public cloud or on a private cloud by extending Frontier’s multi-cloud orchestration portal onto customers’ premises or a hosting provider.

For the second stage of delivery, Frontier uses cloud native tools —infrastructure-as-code tool, Terraform and containers— to manage and control applications running in any cloud or platform to achieve smart costs. These tools are also integrated and available for enterprises that choose self-service cloud consumption.

In the final stage of digital transformation, Cloud Managed Solutions leverage the integration of Frontier’s orchestration portal with leading machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to deliver enhanced operational optimization beyond what cloud native integration can do.

Offering 24/7 support with live technicians, Frontier Cloud Managed Solutions include a host of new cloud and network service offerings focused on cloud infrastructure, cloud continuity (such as disaster recovery as a service), managed security, and managed networking and SD-WAN. Approaching cloud connectivity as an afterthought can be costly.

Frontier’s Cloud Managed IT Solutions deliver an end-to-end solution focused on helping its enterprise customers build smart connectivity solutions, including:

  • Uniquely integrated solutions that simplify adoption of Cloud Managed IT Solutions for enterprises of all sizes.
  • Custom customer solutions delivered by combining Frontier’s standard products.
  • The ability to adapt to customers’ individual business models through a pay-per-consumption or pay-per-capacity model, or both.

Frontier’s IT Resilience Orchestration tools also reduce risks by enabling easier and more frequent testing of DR (Disaster Recovery) environments and restricting failover to the affected applications while maintaining the remaining infrastructure.

Customers can learn more about Frontier® Cloud Managed Solutions at https://enterprise.frontier.com/Cloud-Managed-Solutions or by calling 844-331-9485.

@FrontierCorp’s Cloud Managed IT Solutions are a complete, flexible multi-cloud delivery platform that brings business customers a reliable, consistent and unified cloud IT operations experience.
