Grazed from Cloud Daddy

Cloud Daddy, the world's most secure AWS-native data protection solution, announced today that its one-of-a-kind product offering is now available on the AWS Marketplace.

Cloud Daddy's Secure Backup is the only solution that joins backup and disaster recovery, advanced security, and infrastructure management into one holistic offering for AWS users.

For Cloud Daddy, the move to a unified AWS-native solution reflects the changing IT landscape.

"In today's world, cybercrime and cyber threats join natural disasters in making secure backup and recovery a constant concern."

Grazed from ClearSky

ClearSky Data, provider of on-demand primary storage with built-in offsite backup and DR as a service, today announced the results of its recent survey on the state of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). The findings reflect the experiences of more than 500 senior-level IT leaders. While respondents were enthusiastic about the potential for DRaaS to improve data protection strategies under limited budgets, the majority have no plans to move to a cloud-only approach, making a strong case for hybrid DR.

ClearSky's survey asked leaders in a range of industries where they store their data, how often they test their DR strategies, what level of data growth they expect this year and more. The findings confirm data protection remains a critical concern for enterprise IT leaders, who want efficient ways to protect all their data and remain operational in the event of disasters. However, despite cloud advances, 51 percent of respondents said they have no plans to move to cloud-only approaches. About the same number reported they are deployed in hybrid models today.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator Ensures Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery Compliance and Peace-of-Mind

Grazed from Veeam Software

Veeam Software, the Availability for the Always-On Enterprise innovator, today announced the general availability of NEW Veeam Availability Orchestrator - the newest addition to the Veeam Availability Platform - which enables enterprises to ensure business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) compliance. Most DR failures can be tracked back to outdated and untested plans. The rapidly increasing rate of business and technology changes makes it critical that companies update their DR plans continuously, something that only 14 percent do today, according to Forrester Research. Veeam Availability Orchestrator solves this problem by delivering a DR orchestration solution that reduces the time, cost and effort associated with planning for and recovering from a disaster.

While many enterprises have a DR plan already in place, executing on these plans is often complex, cumbersome and time-consuming. Expensive, error-prone manual processes are common but do not scale, resulting in DR plans that can easily become obsolete. This results in risk to both data and application Availability, but also to compliance with industry regulations and governing bodies. Veeam Availability Orchestrator is the answer, providing an orchestration engine rich with planning, automated documenting and testing capabilities for preparedness and compliance, with full support for Veeam replicas.
