The First Business Continuity Solution to offer a credible “stepping stone” to Private Cloud for Small and Medium Business
Storage element of “SmartStyle Computing” concept offers innovative Business Continuity appliance for on-premise that scales to deliver a private local cloud computing solution
March 10, 2011, GHENT – Zenith Infotech, a technology innovation company specializing in cloud and business-continuity solutions, today launches MirrorCloud, a revolutionary business continuity solution offering exceptional scalability, fault tolerance and redundancy to the European Channel. MirrorCloud is a key component in the “SmartStyle Computing” platform aimed at helping Small and Medium Enterprises benefit from Cloud Computing technologies.
MirrorCloud is delivered as a turnkey solution deployed without complex integration using a high availability server appliance with built-in configuration wizards, backup, monitoring and support services. The solution offers advanced data mirroring to provide a local standby server that takes over in the event of an application server failure. The solution has optional backup capability using any IP network to a MirrorCloud secure datacenter. This off-site backup allows clients to maintain application access and data recovery in the event of a more serious site failure.
MirrorCloud is built on the modular and scalable SmartStyle Computing platform that allows customers to add storage and CPU capacity when needed. From a single MirrorCloud node, Zenith Infotech Partners can scale any site to a full SmartStyle Private Cloud by adding additional nodes to simultaneously support a client’s business continuity requirements and multiple production servers.
The openness of the platform to offer an essential continuity solution and also run any virtual servers and desktops in a true production environment provides a unique integration option for legacy infrastructure and a smooth migration path into cloud computing.
“MirrorCloud is an important element of our SmartStyle Platform as it addresses the problem of reliable and cost effective business continuity – one of the main issues facing SME’s” explains Jorre Belpaire, Channel Director for Zenith Infotech Europe, “It is also a fundamental building block as once servers and data are backed up and secure, the activation of other advantageous services built around server virtualisation, thin clients, storage and infrastructure-as-a-service is a relatively easy task for our partners.”
MirrorCloud will be sold exclusively through a network of over 600 Zenith Infotech channel partners across Europe. Each installation is supported 24/7 via a dedicated network operation centre which includes proactive monitoring, troubleshooting and recovery services. MirrorCloud supports all Microsoft Windows desktops and servers with additional features including Continuous data mirroring, Failover virtualization, Live bare metal restore and Granular exchange recovery.
