dinCloud Enters Cloud Storage Space, Supporting NetApp Customers 
Affordable Second-Site Replication Now Available Through Cloud
Storage Service 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 --   dinCloud, a cloud
transformation company, today announced the availability of
dinBackup, a NetApp(R)-based cloud storage service that offers
second-site replication, redundancy, and overall disaster recovery
capabilities for NetApp customers. Part of dinCloud's business
provisioning, dinBackup makes implementing a comprehensive disaster
recovery solution affordable and painless for existing customers of
Data ONTAP(R)-based storage. 
"Many customers face challenges deploying and managing secondary data
centers to maintain continuous data access and recover
business-critical applications," said Julie Parrish, senior vice
president of Global Partner Sales, NetApp. "dinCloud Backup and
Recovery integrated with NetApp(R) storage, including SnapMirror(R)
and SnapVault(R), helps organizations maintain business continuity
and reduce the complexity of operating secondary data centers." 
"Traditional disaster recovery solutions that back up to a secondary
data center carry significant infrastructure and management costs,
something that many businesses, especially small to mid-sized
business, cannot afford," said Ali Din, senior vice president of
dinCloud. 
dinBackup simplifies the replication and data protection of a user's
NetApp-based storage to the dinCloud NetApp-based infrastructure
using familiar tools and processes.  
Major benefits of dinBackup include: 


 
--  Reduced costs -- remove upfront capital expenditures while reducing
    operating costs by 20-50%
--  Predictable subscription-based, flat rate pricing means no hidden or
    data transfer fees
--  Faster business value -- shortcut having replication up and running
    faster than it takes to order and configure equipment

  
"dinCloud offers a wealth of advanced capabilities for business
provisioning in the cloud with the ease of use, scalability,
affordability and security customers demand," said Joe Martins,
managing director of Data Mobility Group. "Its NetApp-based dinBackup
service is a welcomed complement to its server and virtual desktop
offerings, and a solution for cloud backup and rec
overy that existing
NetApp customers cannot afford to overlook." 
Kevin Schatzle, president of dinCloud, reiterated, "Customers choose
dinCloud because we offer more than just cloud storage. By offering
hosted desktops and servers, we offer 'business provisioning' of a
customer's entire IT infrastructure. As a result, we don't just bring
your data back -- we bring your business back." 
As with all dinCloud services, dinBackup's design and service is
vetted by NetApp's technical, sales, and marketing teams to provide a
robust data protection architecture that follows best practices, is
reliable, and scalable. For more information visit:
