e-ternity’s Cloud Backup Service Now Available to Protect Customers in Every 6fusion Public Cloud Data Centre Around the World
October 23, 2012: e-ternity Business Continuity Consultants Inc. a Mississauga, Ontario based organization that provides cloud services that guarantee business continuance despite any disaster or threat, today announced that its e-ternity RecoveryCentre cloud backup and recovery service has become the first data backup service offered in each of 6fusion’s global public cloud data centres. 6fusion provides utility-metered public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure management software and services via a federated global network of third party data centres called iNodes.
Until now, a true high availability IT environment involved a commitment of budget and resources that may have been beyond an organization’s reach. But cloud computing is improving the way businesses make technology decisions. It enables companies to pay for technology in a utility-based model, eliminating the need for capital technology investments.
e-ternity RecoveryCentre is a monthly cloud service that enables businesses to rapidly recover from any business outage without impact to their day-to-day operations for an affordable monthly payment with no up-front capital investment. e-ternity RecoveryCentre utilizes a sophisticated software platform from Asigra to perform online data backups, enabling businesses to restore their systems back to a primary location or another location within a matter of hours.
e-ternity became a 6fusion partner in 2010 when the organization decided to introduce its first Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering, and has enjoyed incredible success since the launch. When 6fusion decided to introduce a data backup service for iNode customers, e-ternity was an obvious choice.
“With the addition of the e-ternity RecoveryCentre backup service to the alliance program, Service Providers and Resellers now have a fully managed data backup option they can leverage in their move to the cloud,” said Doug Steele, COO of 6fusion, “This enables them to very rapidly expand into the cloud, protect their customers and broaden their services portfolio without having to purchase any software.”
In order to join the 6fusion Alliance Partner program, 6fusion engineers put the e-ternity service through a rigid Alliance Partner certification process. Once certified, the service was implemented in each of the 6fusion global iNode locations, so when 6fusion customers deploy virtual cloud servers in any 6fusion iNode they have the option to backup those systems for disaster recovery protection. The e-ternity RecoveryCentre service will now be available for that purpose from the simple drop-down menu in the 6fusion management console.
“e-ternity has been an exceptional partner since day one,” began Doug Steele, Chief Operating Officer for 6fusion.. “When 6fusion decided to provide a data backup service for our hosted cloud server environment, the e-ternity RecoveryCentre service met and often exceeded our criteria for a successful solution.”
Greg Onoprijenko, e-ternity’s President and Managing Director of Sales, commented on the new 6fusion alliance. “Being a part of the 6fusion ecosystem represents a tremendous opportunity for e-ternity,” reflected Onoprijenko. “e-ternity looks forward to working with the 6fusion channel to help them add backup and disaster recovery services to their cloud portfolios.”
