Advance in QuorumSoft Alike(TM) Dramatically Reduces RPO for Citrix XenServer Virtualized Environments
BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
Companies with rapidly changing critical data can now dramatically reduce their recovery point objective (RPO) by using QuorumSoft's breakthrough new single pass backup and replication capabilities for Citrix XenServer virtualized environments. QuorumSoft, a leading provider in data protection for virtual environments, is delivering this enhanced disaster recovery (DR) capability as part of its Alike(TM) backup and disaster recovery solution for Citrix XenServer.
"Companies can use Alike to streamline their backup and DR processes and better protect their operations in the event of a disaster," said Phil Baskette, co-founder and CEO, Quorum Software, Inc. "We believe there's no other Citrix XenServer backup and disaster recovery software that can match the speed and efficiency of our single pass backup and replication."
With single pass backup and replication, a company can reduce their RPO by nearly half. For example, if it takes two hours to back up a XenServer virtual machine and then another two hours to replicate the backed up data as part of a two-step process, the RPO is effectively four hours. Using Alike's direct, simultaneous backup and replication reduces the RPO to two hours, an extremely valuable improvement for companies with critical operational data that changes constantly.
Alike uses an innovative deduplication technology to reduce the time required for both first time and subsequent scheduled replication. XenServer users can back up multiple virtual machines (VMs) concurrently with Alike, making it possible to easily scale the solution to meet their unique requirements. Alike includes the ability to choose push or pull replication to meet different operational requirements.
Quorum Software, Inc. was founded in 2008 to offer organizations of all sizes the high-performance and cost-effective solutions they need to meet their back up and business continuity requirements. The QuorumSoft Alike solution is used by businesses and non-profit organizations worldwide to protect their server and desktop virtualization environments.
