NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudBerry Lab™, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, today announced that it has achieved Storage Competency Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). The APN Storage Competency Program is designed to provide AWS Customers with top quality APN Partners that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven success in specialized solutions areas. APN Partners attaining the Storage Competency designation have demonstrated success in helping customers evaluate and use the techniques and technologies of effectively storing data in the AWS Cloud.
Although CloudBerry Lab has been an AWS Advanced Partner for several years, attaining status as a Storage Competency Partner further validates the company's specific expertise in providing small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), as well as the IT service providers that serve them, with secure, easy-to-manage and affordable cloud-based backup and recovery solutions.
The amount of data small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) need to back up and protect is growing rapidly, and to effectively protect against disaster, those backups should be stored offsite. However, most SMBs simply cannot afford to pay for the equipment, services and the personnel required for an expanded traditional data backup system with an offsite component. Now that online backup has become more affordable, many SMBs are looking to the cloud. CloudBerry Backup provides these organizations a reliable, powerful and affordable solution to back up and recover data using the cloud.
For VARs and resellers, CloudBerry provides an easily managed, robust platform enabling them to start selling backup services to their customers quickly, increasing revenue and expanding their core suite of service offerings.
Finally, CloudBerry Backup is secure, with data confidentiality enforced through the mechanism of transparent exchange whereby only the end-user has access to the actual data residing on external sources. Service providers initiate the process and oversee its completion, while the actual link is established directly between the end user's computer and the cloud repository. In addition, to ensure complete security, CloudBerry protects all data with customer-controlled encryption keys.
CloudBerry recently released CloudBerry Backup 4.0, which includes block-level backup and makes bare metal and system state backups faster and more cost effective.
"CloudBerry has worked with AWS for many years to provide our customers and partners with the most secure, most affordable and easiest-to-use cloud backup solution on the market," said Alexey Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. "Not simply anyone can become a Storage Competency Partner and membership in this elite group validates our deep body of knowledge and achievements in enabling SMBs to take advantage of the cloud for data protection."
