Scale Computing, Veeam Partner on Disk-Based Disaster Recovery
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.
