Zetta.net's Second Generation Hybrid Cloud Backup Outperforms Appliance-Based Solutions According to Analyst Report
SUNNYVALE, CA, Nov 14, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Zetta.net today announced that a report by analyst firm Storage
Strategies Now highlights Zetta.net's second generation hybrid cloud
backup solution, acknowledging that it outperforms, and eliminates
the disadvantages of, appliance-based data protection systems.
According to the report, appliance-based systems add extra hardware
costs, present a single choke and failure point, and induce
complications for distributed offices, particularly for managed
service providers supporting hundreds of customers.
The report asserts that Zetta.net's recent addition of Lean Local
Copy makes "an excellent trade-off" against hardware appliances, and
enables local backup and recovery without resorting to additional
hardware boxes which add complexity and drag time to recovery. The
interaction of Zetta.net software directly with its Smart Cloud
"provides significant increases in the speed of offsite backups and
disaster recovery," with much less to manage -- which can be
particularly important in distributed environments and locations
operated by a managed service provider.
Storage Strategies Now also recognized the combined backup, snapshot
and replication capabilities built into the Zetta.net solution.
Organizations that historically had to implement a different product
for each of these functions, can rely on the highly intelligent
Zetta.net cloud service. Companies benefit from a full range of
functionality that would only be achieved otherwise by investing in
disparate products for local, offsite, archiving and disaster
"Zetta.net has taken a particularly clever approach to eliminating
the need for a local appliance," said James Bagley, senior analyst,
Storage Strategies Now. "Lean Local Copy together with Smart Cloud
provides an integrated on-premise and offsite server backup and rapid
recovery solution that makes Zetta.net a logical choice for
organizations of all sizes."
"We're exceptionally pleased with the response we've received to our
second generation hybrid cloud backup solution," said Gary Sevounts,
vice president of marketing, Zetta.net. "Customers, partners and
industry analysts such as Storage Strategies Now have expressed
enthusiasm for its ability to dramatically reduce the cost and
management complexities associated with appliance-based backup
systems. Once companies experience the ease of use, rapid recovery
and cost benefits we deliver, there is simply no going back to the
appliance dark ages."
