Persistent Systems Unveils rCloud 4 Universal Architecture With Instant Restore 
for Rapid Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery 
Rapid Disaster Recovery of Both Physical and Virtual Environments;
Supports All Local Backup Products 
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/13 --  Persistent Systems
(BOMBAY: PERSISTENT) (NSE: PERSISTENT), today unveiled the release of
its rCloud 4 Universal Architecture with Instant Restore
capabilities. An innovative cloud platform that meets the business
continuity needs of businesses of all sizes, the new rCloud Universal
Architecture is vendor agnostic, supporting one of the industry's
widest variety of physical and virtual backup solutions including
Dell's AppAssure, StorageCraft's ShadowProtect, and VMWare's
ESX/vSphere. Unlike competitive offerings, rCloud 4 enables customers
to leverage existing, on premise, image based backups at a fraction
of the cost of traditional disaster recovery solutions. Through its
easy to use interface, the rCloud service protects both physical and
virtual machines (VMs) from local server or on-site failures by
replicating snapshots to the rCloud, identifying each snapshot as an
instant recovery point. With the Universal Architecture Instant
Restore feature, customers can restore any physical and virtual
environment in a matter of minutes. 
"Fast, flexible and affordable disaster recovery are top priorities
for IT departments of all sizes that need to ensure data availability
and security in the face of natural disasters, a failure in
technology or human error," said Nara Rajagopalan, Chief Product
Officer, Persistent Systems, Inc. "We are delighted to bring to
market, the industry's most robust, scalable and fully cloud-enabled
SMB business continuity solution that addresses the market needs
without requiring MSPs to 'rip and replace' existing back-up
solutions that they have already installed, and are familiar with. In
this age of constant connectivity, both MSPs and their customers can
rely on rCloud's Universal Architecture to effectively protect
information, and ensure service availability at all times, instantly
without having to jump through hoops." 
"As promised, Persistent Systems has taken rCloud to the next level
-- offering the most intuitive and channel-friendly support 
for image
based backup and disaster recovery services in the cloud today," said
Alex Rogers, CEO of CharTec. "We are very excited to be able to offer
our customers blazing fast recovery both locally on our BDR appliance
and in the rCloud." 
"With rCloud 4, we are able to offer our customers near-continuous
service availability even through entire site-outages, without having
to change our current on-premises processes," said Scott Solomon, CEO
of SASetech, Inc. "rCloud should be the keystone in everyone's
business continuity plan."
