CAMPBELL, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Eversync, the leader in data protection solutions for the mid-market, today announced the release of its Eversync Virtual Backup Software. With this announcement, mid-market customers can protect their data using software that runs as a VMware virtual appliance and backs up physical servers, virtual servers, and applications. System administrators in growing virtual environments no longer need a separate virtual-only data protection solution as they can now protect all their physical, virtual, and application servers with one software product.
Eversync Virtual Backup Software is available now as part of Eversync OS Release 5.1, a full-featured enterprise class solution, including replication, deduplication, archiving, and instant restores.
Jerome M. Wendt, president and lead analyst at DCIG, remarked, "Eversync has put a real emphasis on designing their products for the virtual environment, and this virtual backup software product is the result of that effort. In our evaluations of virtual backup software appliances, we have found Eversync to be a better solution than many name-brand products."
The Eversync Virtual Backup Software product is the first data protection solution to be available as a subscription-based service. With a subscription price starting at less than $200 per month, customers can get the benefits of flexible, usage-based pricing for backup and replication now, as they prepare for future cloud deployments. Eversync Virtual Backup Software is available in four packages, based on raw storage capacity for data protection:
- Basic Edition for $190/month -- up to 2 TB for effective storage of up to 20 TB of data
- Mid-Range Edition for $240/month -- up to 3 TB for effective storage of up to 30 TB of data
- Enterprise Edition for $420/month -- up to 5 TB for effective storage of up to 50 TB of data
- Enterprise Plus Edition for $800/month -- up to 10 TB for effective storage of up 100 TB of data
There are no separate per-server, per-socket, or per-user fees.
"Today's launch of Eversync Virtual Backup Software marks the next big step in Eversync's transformation to a services business," said Victor Perez, CEO, Eversync. "This radical new pricing model is our response to our customers' need for a stepping stone approach to eventual transition to cloud services. Customers can move up from one package to another as their storage needs grow, and eventually move to a hybrid cloud solution where data is automatically tiered between on-premise backups and the cloud."
The Eversync family of appliances and the new Eversync Virtual Backup Software offer a seamless user experience with a common user interface and management. The appliances and Virtual Backup Software products can be used together in replication configurations and managed with a single interface.
"As we move our datacenter to 100% virtualization, we are excited that Eversync is moving with us," said Kevin Robbins, IT Administrator, Edgewave, who was one of the beta testers of Eversync's Virtual Backup Software. "Eversync's Virtual Backup Software allows us to use multiple sites for replication without installing backup appliances at every location."
"Mid-market customers want solutions that meet their backup and disaster recovery needs now, and help them on their path to service and cloud based solutions in the future," said Deni Conor of SSG Now. "Eversync's exciting new pricing model and their cloud strategy will give customers just that."
The Eversync solution includes enterprise features at a mid-market price, including replication, deduplication, and virtualization.
- Replication - With disaster recovery options that include site-to-site replication, remote office replication, and site-to-cloud replication, the Eversync data protection solution is an enterprise-class solution.
- Deduplication - Eversync's SSD enhanced deduplication results in storage capacity reduction of over 10 times, without sacrificing performance or CPU cycles.
- VMware integration - Eversync provides agentless backup of virtual servers through its integration with VMware, including best-in-class features like VM discovery and tracking, change block tracking, browse and click instant restores of virtual machines, and object level restores for Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server running inside of virtual machines.
- Mobile applications - Eversync's software can be managed and monitored anytime, anywhere with the Eversync Mobile App, available for all major mobile devices.
Eversync gives peace of mind to its customers by protecting their data. The company's products combine enterprise-level disaster recovery, compliance and backup capabilities in a simple and affordable package that is purpose-built for mid-sized organizations. Eversync sells its products to a growing list of customers through an exclusive network of channel partners who are focused on mid-sized enterprises and virtualization.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
