MINDEN, Nev., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spare Backup, Inc. ("Spare Backup") (OTCBB: SPBU), a provider of data backup and security software for smartphones, tablets and PCs, which is carrier and manufacturer agnostic, today announced that management has begun the upgrade of its hardware to a scalable storage platform capable of supporting millions of Spare Backup and Spare Mobile users. Through a unique cloud like structure, this new platform can be infinitely scaled as usage increases by the combined use of additional network storage and virtual machine arrays (VMWARE). The upgrade will help to support multiple launches scheduled to take place in the coming quarters through Spare Backup's current distribution agreements in Europe and North America.
"The upgrade of our storage capabilities to a scalable platform capable of supporting millions of users is a significant step forward for Spare Backup as we begin numerous product launches with our distribution partners, particularly in the mobile space," said Tim Page, Vice President of Application Development of Spare Backup. "The ability to seamlessly scale our storage capabilities as usage increases will enable us to rapidly build Spare Backup's subscriber base while providing 24/7 availability of our cloud based services. With this storage solution, we are confident in our ability to rapidly grow with our partners and insure their valuable customer data and devices are safe, secure and easily restored."
Management anticipates the new storage platform will be operational in the next 30 days with full deployment taking place by the end of 2011. Upon completion all user backup data will be stored on state of the art NetAPP SAN storage. User account information and transactional information will be stored in a secure SQL-Server redundant distributed database utilizing special high-speed RAID drives. In addition, Spare Backup's IIS web servers each can support thousands of simultaneous users. Combining this with Spare's new scalable Virtual Machine array allows the system to be used by millions of users.
Commenting on the new storage platform, Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup stated, "As our distribution pipeline fills, it was imperative that we also make the appropriate capital investments into our backend, to enable us to keep up with demand in a seamless and cost efficient way. The new hardware coupled with our new uniquely designed backend, will now meet our objective to support millions of users throughout our system across all devices and operating systems for years to come. This architecture can also be replicated in additional datacenters affording us the opportunity to license software to future partners who have expressed the desire to have proprietary control of customer data."
