3X Systems & Tushaus Partner to Deliver Private Cloud Computing Appliance

Tushaus incorporates 3X RBA into its DataVault solution to deliver secure and affordable managed data protection and business co

3X Systems, a provider of “private cloud” backup appliances, on Friday announced that Tushaus Computer Services, a Milwaukee-based provider of leading edge technology solutions, is offering managed backup and business continuance solutions that incorporate the 3X RBA (Remote Backup Appliance) into its DataVault offering. Through this solution provider partnership, Tushaus deploys, hosts, and manages 3X RBA systems for small to medium business customers in its cloud hosting centers in Milwaukee and Appleton, Wisconsin. Because each customer’s data is automatically and securely protected to a dedicated appliance in a “private cloud,” there are no concerns about data sharing or unauthorized access. This is especially important for organizations in healthcare, financial services, non-profit, and professional services that need to comply with regulations covering the availability and storage of electronic data.

Tushaus takes a complete backup of a customer’s data to a dedicated 3X RBA and then hosts and manages the appliance offsite in one of its cloud hosting centers. The 3X RBA automatically backs up all of the customer’s Microsoft Windows-based servers, workstations, and laptops over the Internet using its unique Locator Service. All data changes are securely and efficiently transmitted to the 3X RBA at the Tushaus facility thanks to integrated de-duplication, compression, encryption, and block-level backup capabilities. In the event of data loss or file corruption, users can restore data quickly and easily. In the event of a disaster or complete system loss, Tushaus can bring the customer’s 3X RBA onsite to quickly rebuild servers or create a business continuance emergency site, then bring the appliance back to its data center for continued protection.

“Protecting data is critically important for businesses of all sizes,” said Tim Mauck, Director of Product Management for Tushaus. “But too often, it is neglected or not done properly because customers find it too complex or too costly. That is why we are excited to expand our DataVault solution using the 3X RBA. 3X Systems has built a uniquely comprehensive and reliable backup and recovery system at a price point that works even for our smaller customers.”

“Tushaus immediately saw the value proposition of the 3X RBA in delivering data protection that is reliable, affordable, and secure,” said Rocky White, Director of Sales & Marketing for 3X Systems. “Although the partnership is new, we already have several successful installations with Tushaus customers.”

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.

While more companies are now leveraging the cloud to increase their level of data protection and management, there are still many wondering “why?” The answer: the cloud actually brings substantial advancements to the data protection and management table that simply aren’t possible without it. The easiest advantage to envision? Unlimited scalability. If a data protection tool is properly designed, the capacity should automatically expand to meet any customer’s needs. The second advantage: the cloud is the simplest way to centralize the storage of all secondary data sources while also providing unlimited compute that can be used to gain additional insight and business value from that data. Finally, the ability to do automated Disaster Recovery (DR) without maintaining a DR facility is unquestionably a major value of the cloud, and simply isn’t possible otherwise. Join W.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
