MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - Sep 17, 2012) - VirtualSharp Software, the leading provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, today announced that Core DataCloud's new Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS) for SMBs is based on VirtualSharp's ReliableDR product, enabling SMBs to protect their key vSphere virtualized applications and guarantee service level agreements.
Automated recovery processes in the cloud ensure that Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) become 'Actuals' (RPA/RTA) and organizations can guarantee compliance with corporate Business Continuity policies. These benefits, combined with low start up costs and a pay-as-you-go monthly pricing model, confirm analyst projections that the RaaS model will be used by as much as 30% of midsize companies by 2014.
"We are delighted that Core DataCloud has chosen ReliableDR to deliver their new recovery platform," said Carlos Escapa, Co-Founder and CEO of VirtualSharp. "There is an increasing need for hosted Recovery-as-a-Service solutions in the marketplace, with particularly smaller and mid size companies having the ability to leverage the sophistication of enterprise-class clouds without prohibitive, upfront capital investments."
"We are excited to announce our partnership with VirtualSharp, which enables us to offer an industry-leading Recovery-as-a-Service solution," said Sharad Saggar, CEO of Core DataCloud. "We have built our reputation on delivering enterprise-class RPO and RTO to the mid market, and VirtualSharp's Recovery Assurance technology provides a major differentiator for us as we prepare to expand further."
