InMage & Hitachi Data Systems Partner to Enable Local Channel Partners to Deliver Next Generation Server Replication and Recovery Cloud Services in Hong Kong
SAN JOSE, Calif. – October 30, 2012 – InMage® announced today that its ScoutCloud platform has been selected by Hitachi Data Systems® to help the company’s channel partners bring next-generation server replication and recovery cloud services to customers in Hong Kong.
Using ScoutCloud’s built-in technologies such as continuous data protection (CDP), application awareness and consistency, asynchronous replication and WAN optimization, together with storage technology from Hitachi Data Systems, enables local channel partners to provide increased benefits to their end users, such as the ability to recover their physical and virtual servers as virtual machines in the secure cloud.
“Featuring lower costs, reduced complexity, and limited risks, InMage’s ScoutCloud takes us to the next level in terms of the support we can provide to our channel partners,” said Andrew Sampson, General Manager, Hong Kong and Macau, Hitachi Data Systems. “With exponential data growth and increasing complexity, every second counts in the process of recovering applications in order to minimize data loss and maintain business continuity. It is therefore our priority to provide instant response during disasters with InMage’s ScoutCloud platform. It offers not only excellent recovery ability, but also achieves service levels that exceed expectations.”
ScoutCloud combines best in class data protection, a comprehensive physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual recovery engine that supports failover/failback for all applications, and automated provisioning of recovery virtual machines and their associated storage. This enables MSPs and Cloud providers to offer Recovery as a Service (RaaS) that is capable of near-zero RPO and RTO. ScoutCloud protects any customer server (virtual or physical) and can recover it nearly instantaneously as a virtual machine in the cloud.
“We’re pleased to partner with Hitachi Data Systems and bring ScoutCloud to their service providers in that region,” said Ramesh Mandava, Vice President, Sales and Operations, APAC and EMEA, InMage. “Their customers will be able to leverage their existing IT assets while adopting feature-rich cloud-based server replication and recovery services to expedite their disaster recovery (DR) implementations. This leads to substantial savings in time and money for them.”
