Leveraging Geminare's DRaaS Cloud Management Platform (CMP) and the skill set available through TierPoint's announced and completed acquisitions, TierPoint is enabling customers to utilize virtually any public, private, or hybrid cloud deployment model for their DR requirements.
Recognizing the importance of providing an advanced level of deployment and support knowledge to deliver data protection solutions on cloud infrastructure, TierPoint has built out specialized teams of experienced solution architects and support engineers that are able to assist customers with virtually any DRaaS deployment model. Paired with Geminare's DR as a Service Cloud Management Platform (DRaaS CMP) - a mature platforms for the delivery of DRaaS solutions -TierPoint has raised the bar for service providers delivering DRaaS.
TierPoint customers are able to leverage DRaaS across public clouds such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, and Google Cloud Platform, while having integration back to on-premises applications, physical hardware technologies, or individual applications requiring specialized backup or replication technologies.
Data archiving to and from virtually any cloud platform is integrated into the DRaaS CMP and allows TierPoint customers the ability to capitalize on commodity storage pricing in public clouds.
"With a national footprint of over 5000+ customers, we appreciate that DRaaS needs to be managed in a hybrid delivery model. Being able to assemble technology providers, solution integrators, and multiple teams of support professions with the expertise to deliver on the promise of Public, Private, and Hybrid DRaaS is what TierPoint has done successfully," said Shea Long, SVP of products, TierPoint. "With this level of expertise, we are defining delivery models for DRaaS, and with the growth of DRaaS across our customer base we continue to invest in, and expand upon, our DRaaS capabilities in order to set the bar high."
"With DRaaS now considered mainstream, service providers without a comprehensive and flexible DRaaS technology stack will be missing a key pillar in their solution suite," said Joshua Geist, president and CEO, Geminare. "We see TierPoint as having redefined how DRaaS can be delivered to customers by empowering service delivery teams with key technologies and real world knowledge. TierPoint has clearly recognized that DR in the cloud no longer works in a 'one size fits all' model, and is creating one of the most flexible customer centric DRaaS solutions in the market. We are very excited to be a part of this journey."
