Zenith Introduces MirrorCloud: For Business Continuity In The Cloud
MirrorCloud is a business continuity system for the upper SME market.
Zenith Infotech, the company specialising in cloud, business-continuity and virtual help-desk solutions, has introduced MirrorCloud, a business continuity system for the upper SME market. By leveraging the SmartStyle computing platform's data mirroring and snapshot process, MirrorCloud provides a high level of protection for Windows servers or desktops, dramatically increasing Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs). MirrorCloud quickly reproduces a virtual image of any failed server or desktop within minutes, circumventing downtime should disaster strike.
Leveraging Zenith's SmartStyle Computing platform, MirrorCloud is ideal for companies between 500 and 1,000 users requiring less than 100 TB of storage. Since the virtual "mirror" images are presented at block level, settings such as the NetBIOS name, IP address and more remain the same within the replicated data scheme. Once the server or desktop is virtualised, a live bare-metal restore (BMR) can be invoked for data restoration to physical hardware. Live BMR allows users to continue to access data while the BMR is taking place, further increasing up-time.
"MirrorCloud is a key development in what we call our Cloud Revolution," said Ryan Morse, Director, product management, Zenith Infotech. "Its Business Continuity features have catapulted SmartStyle Computing beyond the small business environment, facilitating an exceedingly reliable cloud-based infrastructure. The technical prowess of this application singles out the Zenith brand in the business continuity space. It will compel the cloud computing trend forward, removing one of the cloud's perceived barriers-to-market."
