LOS ANGELES, CA, Nov. 8 – 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:
“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.
dinCloud was a sponsor of the 2012 NetApp Insight Conference, an event for top NetApp talent and partners, that took place November 5-8 in Las Vegas, NV.
dinCloud is a cloud transformation company that helps organizations rapidly migrate to the cloud through Business Provisioning. Each private, virtual datacenter provides hosted virtual desktops, hosted virtual servers, and cloud backup and recovery services, which are controlled by the customer through a web-based application. dinCloud provides subscription-based services tailored to fit a range of business models resulting in reduced cost, enhanced security, control, and productivity. dinCloud is headquartered in Los Angeles.
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
