Zetta.net's Second Generation Hybrid Cloud Backup Outperforms Appliance-Based Solutions According to Analyst Report

(November 14, 2012)
DMN Newswire--2012-11-14--Storage Strategies Now Asserts that Zetta.net All-in-One Backup, Archiving and Disaster Recovery Solution Eliminates the Disadvantages of Appliance-based Data Protection

Zetta.net today announced that a report by analyst firm Storage Strategies Now highlights Zetta.net's second generation hybrid cloud backup solution, acknowledging that it outperforms, and eliminates the disadvantages of, appliance-based data protection systems. According to the report, appliance-based systems add extra hardware costs, present a single choke and failure point, and induce complications for distributed offices, particularly for managed service providers supporting hundreds of customers. 



The report asserts that Zetta.net's recent addition of Lean Local Copy makes "an excellent trade-off"against hardware appliances, and enables local backup and recovery without resorting to additional hardware boxes which add complexity and drag time to recovery. The interaction of Zetta.net software directly with its Smart Cloud "provides significant increases in the speed of offsite backups and disaster recovery," with much less to manage - which can be particularly important in distributed environments and locations operated by a managed service provider.

Storage Strategies Now also recognized the combined backup, snapshot and replication capabilities built into the Zetta.net solution. Organizations that historically had to implement a different product for each of these functions, can rely on the highly intelligent Zetta.net cloud service. Companies benefit from a full range of functionality that would only be achieved otherwise by investing in disparate products for local, offsite, archiving and disaster recovery.

"Zetta.net has taken a particularly clever approach to eliminating the need for a local appliance," said James Bagley, senior analyst, Storage Strategies Now. "Lean Local Copy together with Smart Cloud provides an integrated on-premise and offsite server backup and rapid recovery solution that makes Zetta.net a logical choice for organizations of all sizes."

"We're exceptionally pleased with the response we've received to our second generation hybrid cloud backup solution," said Gary Sevounts, vice president of marketing, Zetta.net. "Customers, partners and industry analysts such as Storage Strategies Now have expressed enthusiasm for its ability to dramatically reduce the cost and management complexities associated with appliance-based backup systems. Once companies experience the ease of use, rapid recovery and cost benefits we deliver, there is simply no going back to the appliance dark ages."
