SingleHop has launched Veeam Availability Suite v9 to general availability, providing a fully integrated Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering for applications and cloud data, the company announced Tuesday. The addition builds on the partnership leveraged by SingleHop to launch backup services a year ago.
SingleHop DRaaS provides all the computing, memory, storage and networking resources for virtualized production environments from a remote DR site through Veeam Cloud Connect’s multi-tenancy and networking capabilities, according to the announcement. Customers can avoid the infrastructure cost and complexity of maintaining their own DR sites, by selecting workloads in their Veeam consoles for replication to the SingleHop cloud.
“We’re making disaster recovery less of a pain point and business risk to our customers,” Jordan Jacobs, vice president of products for SingleHop said in a statement. “Veeam’s latest DR technology puts reliable, cost-effective and secure failover capabilities within reach of hundreds of thousands of customers. When combined with SingleHop’s enterprise grade production cloud storage, our joint customers can enjoy a worry-free failover solution. That’s huge for IT administrators struggling to meet strict RTO and RPO objectives set by their managers.”
The DR service delivers a Recovery Time Objective and Recovery Point Objective of 15 minutes, using a proprietary secure seeding system developed by SingleHop to transfer large amounts of data into the SingleHop cloud while bypassing the Internet.
“SingleHop is one of the fastest growing Veeam Cloud & Service Provider partners in North America, increasing their commitment to Veeam by more than a factor of 10 in 2015,” Matt Kalmenson, North America vice president of service and cloud provider sales for Veeam said in a statement. “The company’s innovation, execution, and technical expertise make them a leader among the VCSP partners in our program.”
Business continuity products have been a growth market for SingleHop, growing 300 percent quarter-over-quarter for the last three quarters, the company said, driven by its Backup as a Service solution. SingleHop is offering free trials of its backup and DR services through its website.
SingleHop launched a premium DDoS mitigation solution early in 2015, and made a pair of acquisitions later in the year. It also announced the “Actionable Intelligence” SaaS in November, a remote server management tool, which is set for an imminent beta release.
