Enterprise storage and backup firm CommVault is offering a hosted cloud disaster recovery system that it claims is a more appealing alternative to traditional systems.
Cloud DR can ensure the continuity of systems without the need for the large investments usually associated with disaster recovery systems, the firm said.
The offering makes uses of Rackspace cloud hosting services, and CommVault explained that customers will be able to use on-premise consoles to manage their backups.
The addition of the Rackspace element means that data and documents can be stored and replicated off site in a reliable and secure place, according to CommVault.
Cloud DR is also simple and economical to use, explained Jeff Echols, senior director of cloud strategy and alliances at CommVault.
"CommVault is redefining mid-market disaster recovery by offering a fully integrated solution which reduces the financial challenges associated with traditional disaster recovery services, providing affordable and rapid recovery of backup and archive data residing in the cloud," he said.
The hosted alternative also removes much of the hardware burden, according to CommVault, and can allow companies to cut down on tape storage and save time on management.
