Government of Canada Embraces Nisha’s Cloud Recovery Product

March 17th, 2011, Toronto, Canada: Geminare, a pioneer in the Cloud Recovery space, and Nisha Technologies, one of Canada’s fastest growing aboriginal suppliers of cloud-based technologies, today announced a partnership which allows Nisha to deliver Geminare’s award-winning Cloud Recovery to the Canadian Government under its Software Licensing Supply Arrangement (SLSA). Cloud Recovery, Nisha’s latest product offering, is now available for deployment within multiple Government of Canada data centres, and aligns with its primary focus of providing the federal government with the latest in IT solutions.

Geminare’s Cloud Recovery offering delivers continuous availability of an organization’s mission-critical servers and applications during scheduled or unplanned outages by replicating data in real-time to a secure cloud environment.  Geminare’s offering boasts Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) measured in single-digit minutes, and is delivered through Geminare’s patented HUB Platform, providing capabilities such as “single-click” instant auto-failover and failback.

Joshua Geist, Geminare’s CEO said, “Nisha is extremely well positioned within the Government of Canada, and within days of executing our agreement, it received the Department of Public Works and Government Services’ approval to sell our Cloud Recovery product within the GOC sector.  I’m confident that the opportunity that Nisha has created with the Canadian federal government will also open doors for Geminare, and other partners, to engage with other government sectors worldwide.”

Working closely with its sister company, CLICK-Into, Nisha offers a wide range of virtualization and Cloud-based services, coupled with an extensive IT services portfolio. The combined skill-sets of the two organizations have allowed them to easily integrate the Geminare offerings into their product suite.

Nisha’s President, Angela O’Leary states, “We’re excited by the prospect of introducing Geminare’s Cloud Recovery to the Government of Canada.  Working together, I’m confident that we can deliver a very high-value, economical solution that will help ensure government business continues as usual during system outages.”

Al Muzar, CLICK-Into’s President and CEO added, “We see tremendous synergies between our Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions and Geminare’s business continuity technology. By merging our capabilities, our DaaS offering is now highly differentiated in the market, delivering application continuity unparalleled in the industry.”

Geminare’s Cloud Recovery product is immediately available through Nisha Technologies and CLICK-Into Incorporated.
