Zetta.net Sees Strong Momentum and 133% Growth in 2012

Cloud-Based Backup and Recovery Provider Achieves Key Milestones in 2012 as It Positions to Capitalize on $100 Billion Public IT Cloud Services Market

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Zetta.net today announced strong growth in 2012 as demand for its enterprise-grade online server backup and disaster recovery solution escalates. Its revenue and customer base grew over 100% in 2012, easily beating a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) forecast for IT Cloud Services of 26.4%(1), which is already five times that of the IT industry overall.

Some of the factors driving growth in cloud-based and hybrid backup and recovery in particular, and demand for Zetta.net's solution, include:

  • Rapidly increasing volumes of data that need protection
  • Multiplying number of smaller files making traditional software backups slow and ineffective
  • The decentralization of IT particularly among organizations with distributed offices, making appliance-based backup solutions expensive, difficult to deploy and extremely complex to manage

In addition, traditional software and appliance vendors struggle to deliver high performance enterprise-grade online backup since a cloud-centric architecture is required to achieve high performance and robust security -- something that would call for a complete rewrite for most vendors.

These factors are challenging traditional backup vendors who struggle with poor performance, missed backup windows and difficult to manage legacy solutions. Unlike vendors such as Symantec, Zetta.net combines backup, snapshot and replication in a single solution to significantly expedite the backup process, shrinking total backup from a matter of hours to minutes.

Zetta.net integrates backup, snapshot and replication functionality, completely eradicating the need for a local appliance. Delivering an enterprise-grade 3-in-1 backup, disaster recovery and archiving enables fast, reliable backup and recovery at a fraction of the cost of backup alone. Because the SaaS-based solution eliminates the cost and management complexities associated with appliance hardware, it is particularly attractive to small/medium businesses, enterprises with distributed office locations, and managed service providers (MSPs). Remote offices and MSPs are no longer required to purchase and manage multiple appliances across distributed locations, and any size business can now enjoy enterprise-grade data protection at an affordable price.

Key Zetta.net milestones demonstrating success over the last year include:

  • 2012 revenue of more than 133 percent over 2011
  • More than doubling of the company's customer base
  • 2012 MSP and partner growth increasing 400 percent over 2011

"Zetta.net's solution was designed for the cloud from day one, by a stellar engineering team from industry leaders such as Netscape, VeriSign, Symantec and Shutterfly. This offers tremendous advantages as the adoption of cloud technologies continues to rise," said Ali Jenab, CEO, Zetta.net. "As a result, we are seeing a large number of customers migrating from Symantec BackupExec and appliance-based backups to our cloud-centric enterprise-grade online backup and disaster recovery solution. With many organizations disillusioned by traditional tape-based backup, Zetta.net is very well positioned to capitalize on the movement toward next-generation cloud-enabled solutions."

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
