Zetta.net announced Thursday the availability of its cloud backup and recover service, Zetta.net DataProtect for NetApp storage solutions. The solution is initially available only through channel partners.
Zetta.net DataProtect for NetApp integrates backup, replication and recovery software, enterprise-grade online storage and WAN traffic optimization. It does not require tapes, third-party software or a second set of NetApp storage systems. The company says that it's low cost and can be deployed and operational in less than 30 minutes.
“Zetta delivers an affordable, enterprise-grade offsite backup and disaster recovery solution for organizations that don’t have budgets and resources for redundant NetApp storage systems, SnapMirror software, or another data center," said Gary Sevounts, vice president of marketing, Zetta.net. “For organizations that rely today on tape and expensive backup software, Zetta helps to significantly reduce the cost and complexity, while improving RPO and RTO."
Since the new solution does not require the procurement or implementation of additional hardware or third-party software, Zetta.net DataProtect for NetApp is available to any reseller or MSP interested in offering affordable, enterprise-grade offsite backup and disaster recovery to NetApp end-users.
“Zetta.net is providing its channel partners with a simple and affordable NetApp backup option, compared to costly hardware-based technologies that require duplicate hardware," said Deni Connor, principal analyst, Storage Strategies NOW. “Zetta.net removes the need for additional iron with lean, high-performance software, coupled with its Smart Cloud, offering enterprise-class backup without the high price tag. DataProtect for NetApp is a sleek solution for VARs and MSPs that promises to win more deals against comparable hardware-based alternatives."
Installation requires a simple download and deployment of the lightweight ZettaMirror software on a gateway server. Once installed, customers simply map the ZettaMirror client to the NetApp filer, selecting the data to be backed up.
