MirrorCloud: The Next Generation for Business Continuity in the Cloud
WARRENDALE, Pa., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Zenith Infotech, a technology innovation company specializing in cloud, business-continuity and virtual help-desk solutions, today introduces MirrorCloud, a revolutionary lightweight backup and disaster recovery software application for the upper SMB market. Through a process of advanced data cloning, MirrorCloud takes zero-copy data snapshots of any physical and virtual Windows server or desktop, dramatically increasing Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). MirrorCloud quickly reproduces a virtual image of any failed server or desktop within minutes, circumventing downtime should disaster strike. It is the latest add-on to Zenith’s pioneering SmartStyle Computing line of cloud solutions.
Leveraging Zenith’s SmartStyle Computing platform, MirrorCloud is ideal for companies between 500 and 1,000 users requiring less than 100 TB of storage. Since the virtual “mirror” images are presented at block level, settings such as the NetBIOS name, IP address and more remain the same within the replicated data scheme. Once the server or desktop is virtualized, a live bare-metal restore (BMR) can be invoked for data restoration to physical hardware. Live BMR allows users to continue to access data while the BMR is taking place, further increasing up-time.
“MirrorCloud is a key development in what we call our Cloud Revolution,” said Ryan Morse, director of product management for Zenith Infotech. “Its Business Continuity features have catapulted SmartStyle Computing beyond the small business environment, facilitating an exceedingly reliable cloud-based infrastructure. The technical prowess of this application singles out the Zenith brand in the backup space. It will compel the cloud computing trend forward, removing one of the cloud’s perceived barriers-to-market.”
Next-Generation Business Continuity in a Private-Cloud Solution
MirrorCloud is a software add-on to the SmartStyle Computing platform that allows servers and workstations to achieve exemplary, next-generation business continuity. Its advanced technologies safeguard data in a secure, private cloud environment. Exponentially more reliable than a RAID system, MirrorCloud is part of Zenith Infotech’s turn-key suite of SmartStyle Cloud Computing solutions, designed to drive the Cloud Revolution ahead in the IT channel.
Key features include:
- Continuous data mirroring
- Failover virtualization
- Live bare metal restore
- Granular exchange recovery
- Off-site transfer
