To help promote this new alliance, two Veeam and Scale Computing distributors are offering a special promotion.
Scale Computing, a developer
and manufacturer of scalable, fault-tolerant storage systems for small and
midsize businesses' virtualization and disaster recovery needs, is partnering with
Veeam Software, a provider of data protection, disaster recovery and management
solutions for virtual data center environments.
Veeam Backup &
Replication provides recovery of virtualized applications and data for both
VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments. Backup & Replication,
combined with Scale Computings Intelligent Clustered Operating System-based
(ICOS-based) storage clusters will enable networked storage for the production,
backup repository and disaster recovery (DR) environment.
The scale-out ability of the
Scale storage solution is designed to help enable customers to add storage
capacity and performance, the flexibility to mix and match node densities, and
less storage downtime since there is no single point of failure.
Customers deploying Scales
storage and Veeam can expect networked storage for the production, backup
repository and DR infrastructure that is able to scale as the environment
grows; virtual machine-level replication between remote sites; VM-level, agentless
full-system backup and recovery; and failover control that is designed to be
quick and simple for the whole VM, and is not application specific.
As we continue to offer
additional value-added solutions to our customers, the alliance of Scale
storage solutions and Veeam is an ideal combination, said Jeff Ready, CEO and
co-founder of Scale Computing. Together, Scale and Veeam deliver an
affordable, easy-to-manage backup and DR solution for the VMware or Hyper-V
environments of small and medium-sized businesses. This collaborative solution
will work as the backup and DR solution compatible with any existing primary
storage, or it can function as both primary and secondary storage. More than 70
percent of Scales customers are already using VMware or Hyper-V with Scale Computing
as their primary storage solution.
To help promote this new
alliance, two Veeam and Scale Computing distributors are offering a special
promotion to value-added resellers who sell or wish to sell the Scale and Veeam
bundled solution. Starting this week and through May 31, 2012, resellers Ingram
Micro and Promark and their customers will be able to purchase a disaster
recovery bundle that includes Scale Computing hardware and two Veeam licenses
for about half the price of the hardware, representing a $1,900 discount over
the suggested price of both solutions than if they were purchased separately.
