NETGEAR AND STORAGECRAFT SIMPLIFY DATA BACKUP AND RECOVERY WITH NEW READYRECOVER APPLIANCE
ReadyRECOVER backup appliance with ReadyDATA and ShadowProtect integration enables time and space-efficient full backups every 15 minutes
SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 14, 2014 — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR) (www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to businesses, consumers and service providers, today announced ReadyRECOVER™ (www.netgear.com/readyrecover), a new addition to their innovative ReadyDATA™ unified storage (NAS/SAN) platform. ReadyRECOVER is a backup appliance built to run exclusively with the ReadyDATA family of storage appliances. With ReadyRECOVER, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are able to create full backups of servers, desktops and laptops every 15 minutes that can be independently used to quickly and reliably restore files, folders, databases or systems to any platform, physical or virtual. For the first time, businesses can confidently back up their data forever, without ever needing inefficient and time-consuming periodic full system backups.
NETGEAR is the first technology provider to enable incremental backups as full restore points delivering extremely simple recovery point management. ReadyRECOVER integration of the ReadyDATA storage appliance with award-winning ShadowProtect® backup and disaster recovery software from StorageCraft® Technology Corporation (www.storagecraft.com) results in each incremental snapshot functioning as a full recovery point, but consuming a minimal amount of storage space. In addition, each snapshot captures the entire system, the Microsoft Windows® OS, and all settings and data for a rapid full system recovery.
“ReadyRECOVER is a complete hardware and software solution in a single cost-effective backup appliance, relieving businesses of the burden of assembling their own solution,” said John McHugh, general manager and senior vice president of the NETGEAR Commercial Business Unit. “By marrying the enterprise-class features of ReadyDATA with StorageCraft’s best-in-class ShadowProtect software, we offer a solution that enables easy data restoration without a long and complicated process, while suiting the budgetary and usage needs of SMBs.”
ReadyRECOVER creates synthetic full backups in a VHDX format, ready to quickly recover into a virtual or physical machine. For both server-to-NAS backup and PC-to-NAS backup, ReadyRECOVER backups require no file conversion, and can independently be used to quickly and reliably restore files, folders, databases or Windows-based systems to any platform.
“We’re excited to team with NETGEAR in the development of ReadyRECOVER, leveraging our ShadowProtect backup and recovery software,” said Curt James, StorageCraft’s vice president of marketing and business development. “NETGEAR and StorageCraft have co-engineered an extremely innovative new backup and disaster recovery appliance for SMBs that maximizes business continuity should disaster occur.”
ReadyRECOVER provides companies with enterprise-class backup at an affordable price, complete with:
- Protection for Windows servers, Virtual Machines (e.g., Citrix, Microsoft Hyper-V®, VMware, etc.), and PCs, both onsite and offsite
- Simple setup and management
- No incremental restores
- Hardware-independent restoration to any hardware or virtualization platform
- Zero-delay, WAN-optimized replication
- Hardware compression and per-job deduplication for storage efficiency without performance overhead
- An industry-leading five-year warranty for ReadyDATA, the hardware platform for ReadyRECOVER
“My clients are small businesses, who struggle to replicate backup data to an offsite location because of the limited bandwidth in their offices,” said Mark Dutton, the owner of Datamerge (www.datamerge.com.au), a provider of unique, customer-focused Information Technology and telecommunications solutions. “The WAN-optimized replication enabled by NETGEAR ReadyRECOVER addresses this problem and makes their backup and recovery processes painless and automatic. I recommend ReadyRECOVER as an integrated solution that is easy to install and maintain.”
