KineticCloud for Servers Provides Affordable Protection of Digital Assets

TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KineticD™, known for its online backup and disaster recovery services for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the beta-version of its hybrid cloud backup software solution, KineticCloud for Servers. Hybrid cloud backup, also called disk-to-disk-to-cloud, is quickly replacing tape as the backup medium for data stored in files and databases. KineticD is currently disrupting this market with a combination of scalable leading edge technology, simple subscription pricing and 100 percent white-label capabilities that support multi-tier distribution channels.

According to Forrester Research, the global cloud computing market will grow from $40.7 billion in 2011 to $241 billion in 2020. With such rapid growth in cloud computing providers, many online backup companies fail to disclose the "dirty little secret" of cloud backup; the hours of lost time it takes to restore lost data from the cloud. KineticCloud for Servers, a hybrid backup solution, solves this problem by allowing businesses to keep a copy of their critical data on a local server as well as a complete copy of their data in the cloud, allowing for immediate restoration of critical data in the event of a disaster.

KineticCloud for Servers includes native integration for many popular business applications and a host of features designed and optimized for local and cloud server environments, allowing IT administrators to manage data backups using familiar granular backup schedules and retention policies that adhere to internal company guidelines.

As with all KineticD products, this new offering includes automatic, continuous backups with KineticD's patented seamless Pause/Resume capabilities. However, the power of KineticCloud for Servers is its agentless backup capabilities that deliver both simplicity and scalability while providing IT administrators with the freedom to manage, view and control systems from a single point of administration.
