SAN FRANCISCO, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- nScaled, provider of online backup and disaster recovery service solutions, today announced that its enterprise-class recovery as a service (RaaS) solution now supports NetApp storage systems. The nScaled service puts comprehensive disaster recovery squarely in the hands of business professionals, making data predictably and cost effectively recoverable, without the requirement of having dedicated storage or virtualization technical expertise.

For midsize businesses and enterprises, downtime of critical data infrastructure and services can negatively affect customers, employees and partners—ultimately affecting revenues and brand integrity. At the same time, facilitating data availability and recoverability in an efficient and scalable way can be complex and challenging. This is especially true for duplicative infrastructure solutions that offer limited automation, recovery scope, and recovery time or are cost-prohibitive to implement.

"nScaled now protects NetApp volumes enabling backup and recovery across the data spectrum from files to servers to data centers," said chief technical officer, Ilya Beyer, nScaled. "As an automated, self-service offsite backup, we seamlessly complement and extend the protection of NetApp environments, covering multiple use cases."

The nScaled platform directly integrates with NetApp storage systems using the Data ONTAP API. The new offering aims to provide certified backup, disaster recovery and remote storage for businesses that have or plan to use a NetApp storage infrastructure. The nScaled solution simplifies and centralizes visibility, provides automation and workflow controls for complete IT business continuity management.

"Additional benefits from the NetApp - nScaled joint architecture are low recovery point objectives for replicated snapshots, and inherited Active Directory controlled access to 'spun-up file shares,'" continued Beyer.

"Tight integration between NetApp storage systems and the nScaled recovery service keep data fully protected and make it possible to meet recovery time objectives, without having to make tradeoffs between cost-efficiency, speed or security," said Gary Hocking, technology director, service providers, NetApp. "nScaled helps NetApp customers considering cloud based backup and disaster recovery to have consistent and uninterrupted access to data, even in the event of an unforeseen catastrophe."

nScaled and NetApp will preview the new integration via a webinar on Wednesday, March 13th  at 11:00 AM PDT. Details can be found at http://nscaled.com/company/events.
