Online backup software provider Vembu has unveiled a number of new partnerships with leading cloud storage providers, allowing solution providers incredible flexibility to offer online backup solutions to customers regardless of which cloud storage delivery platform they use.
Vembu's StorGrid Service Provider Edition of its StorGrid online backup software is tailored specifically for solution providers whose customers want to take advantage of cloud storage offerings for their backup and disaster recovery needs, says Vembu President Lux Narayan.
"Pick a cloud, any cloud, and we can work with it," says Narayan. "Partnering with every cloud storage provider will give us a foot in the door for any solution provider to sell our software, and they'll have a better value proposition for any potential customer," he says.
In April 2009, Vembu announced it would partner with Amazon.com to provide software integration with Amazon's S3 cloud storage platform. Now, Narayan says, Vembu is expanding its reach by partnering with cloud storage provider Caringo and integrating StorGrid with Caringo's CAStor backup solution, and partnerships with Nirvanix and ParaScale will be announced within the next few months, he says.
