EVault Cited as a Leader in Disaster Recovery as a Service by Leading Independent Research Firm
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Inc., a Seagate (News - Alert) company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced that Forrester
Research, Inc. has recognized EVault as a leader in Disaster Recovery as
a Service (DRaaS) according to the January 2014 report, The Forrester (News - Alert)
Wave™: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q1 20141.
Forrester evaluated vendors based on their current offering, strategy,
and market presence. EVault tied for the second highest scores for its
offering and security, and the highest score possible for recovery
objective capabilities. EVault also achieved the highest score possible
for planned service enhancements and again tied for the second highest
score for value proposition and vision.
Forrester defines DRaaS as "services that enable customers to failover
their on-premises infrastructure to a multitenant cloud environment that
they purchase on a pay-per-use basis. The provider must run customers'
production environments out of the cloud during disaster declarations or
testing." Based on an analysis of what Forrester considers
the 12 most significant service providers, the report cites EVault for
offering "one of the most progressive guarantees with its service."
EVault's DRaaS offering is guaranteed to get organizations back in
business fast; with 4-, 24- and 48-hour guaranteed recovery options
available, the service is particularly beneficial for businesses in
heavily regulated industries, such as health care, financial and legal
services, that cannot tolerate extended outages of critical systems.
"We believe this report is a great acknowledgement of how EVault is
focused on making customers successful," said Terry Cunningham,
President and General Manager, EVault. "EVault gives customers peace of
mind - whether it be the ability to recover their data, their
mission-critical systems, or ensure continuity of the IT operations, we
partner with them so they have one less thing to worry about,"
Cloud Disaster Recovery Service features include:
Managed, rapid recovery of critical systems and data in the EVault
Cloud or certified service provider partners' clouds within 4, 24 or
48 hours, after a disaster (depending on service level), and
guaranteed by an SLA.*
An eperienced team of disaster recovery specialists that extends IT
resources, helping customers implement, plan, test and execute the
entire disaster recovery process 24/7/365.
Remote access to applications in a secure, top tier,
standards-compliant** data center ("warm" site for 24- or 48-hour SLA;
"hot site" for 4-hour SLA) that extends customers' production
environments into the EVault Cloud as long as customers need.
Proactive failover support provides a zero-downtime alternative for
planned maintenance, site outages and upgrades.
A 4-hour SLA recovery option that is compatible with existing backup
"EVault offers a true cloud-based disaster recovery service. Our team of
experts help customers with DR planning, testing and recovery, over and
above our standard cloud-connected server backup & recovery service,"
said Unmesh Kulkarni, Vice President, Customer Experience Management,
EVault. "We helped pioneer the DRaaS industry, and customers tell us
that our EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Service is an important
differentiator for EVault from other backup and recovery vendors. We
believe that Forrester recognizing us as a leader in their report is a
great acknowledgement of our hard work to make customers successful."
