QuorumLabs today announced its Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery solution, the only disaster recovery solution that provides both onsite high availability of key applications and data, plus instant recovery of applications and data from a SAS-70 Type II certified data center maintained by QuorumLabs. Unlike a typical backup-only cloud storage solution, the onQ Hybrid Cloud runs servers locally or through the cloud and recovery is done with a single click of a button. Recovery time is measured in minutes not days since there is no need to ship new hardware or to transfer data to restore applications.
The QuorumLabs Hybrid Cloud Solution adds to the company's award-winning onQ™ High Availability (HA) appliance solution, part of the onQ Site Recovery System that has quickly grown to protect thousands of servers worldwide.
The QuorumLabs' Hybrid Cloud solution gives customers the flexibility of combining a local HA appliance with a monthly or annual fixed fee for cloud recovery. Customer can back up to an onsite onQ HA appliance for immediate high availability and instant recovery, while adding on a cloud-based service for disaster recovery should a customer not have an offsite remote location or simply want to eliminate the hassle and expensive upfront investments. The charge for this service is per server protected, not per gigabyte.
California Bankers Association (Sacramento, CA) looked at several backup and recovery solutions, but found that in order to obtain the multi-functionality they needed, multiple vendors were required. "To get high availability, automated backup and disaster recovery, we would have to sign up several different providers, which is very expensive," said Randy Mateo, IT manager, CBA. "With the QuorumLabs Hybrid Cloud solution, we get an onsite appliance for high availability, plus instant recovery via the cloud. We like that QuorumLabs operates the DR site, since it minimizes management of a DR site for us and is much more cost-effective than if we had to maintain it ourselves."
Small and mid-sized companies find this unique hybrid cloud solution particularly attractive since it allows them to easily grow in a cost-efficient way without having to invest in additional hardware, IT staff or office space, resulting in a predictable cost model while minimizing business risk.
"QuorumLabs' hybrid cloud solution blends onsite high availability with remote DR capabilities, so customers can instantly recover data and applications at any time and from anywhere, within minutes of a disaster," said Gene Loye, vice president of Innovation Network Technologies Corp (InNet).
