dinCloud Enters Cloud Storage Space, Supporting NetApp Customers
Affordable Second-Site Replication Now Available Through Cloud Storage Service
LOS ANGELES, CA – dinCloud, a cloud transformation company, today announced the availability of dinBackup, a NetApp®-based cloud storage service that offers second-site replication, redundancy, and overall disaster recovery capabilities for NetApp customers. Part of dinCloud’s business provisioning, dinBackup makes implementing a comprehensive disaster recovery solution affordable and painless for existing customers of Data ONTAP®-based storage.
“Many customers face challenges deploying and managing secondary data centers to maintain continuous data access and recover business-critical applications,” said Julie Parrish, senior vice president of Global Partner Sales, NetApp. “dinCloud Backup and Recovery integrated with NetApp® storage, including SnapMirror® and SnapVault®, helps organizations maintain business continuity and reduce the complexity of operating secondary data centers.”
“Traditional disaster recovery solutions that back up to a secondary data center carry significant infrastructure and management costs, something that many businesses, especially small to mid-sized business, cannot afford,” said Ali Din, senior vice president of dinCloud.
dinBackup simplifies the replication and data protection of a user’s NetApp-based storage to the dinCloud NetApp-based infrastructure using familiar tools and processes.
Major benefits of dinBackup include:
- Reduced costs – remove upfront capital expenditures while reducing operating costs by 20-50%
- Predictable subscription-based, flat rate pricing means no hidden or data transfer fees
- Faster business value – shortcut having replication up and running faster than it takes to order and configure equipment
“dinCloud offers a wealth of advanced capabilities for business provisioning in the cloud with the ease of use, scalability, affordability and security customers demand,” said Joe Martins, managing director of Data Mobility Group. “Its NetApp-based dinBackup service is a welcomed complement to its server and virtual desktop offerings, and a solution for cloud backup and recovery that existing NetApp customers cannot afford to overlook."
Kevin Schatzle, president of dinCloud, reiterated, “Customers choose dinCloud because we offer more than just cloud storage. By offering hosted desktops and servers, we offer ‘business provisioning’ of a customer’s entire IT infrastructure. As a result, we don’t just bring your data back – we bring your business back.”
As with all dinCloud services, dinBackup’s design and service is vetted by NetApp’s technical, sales, and marketing teams to provide a robust data protection architecture that follows best practices, is reliable, and scalable.
