NSIS Systems Launches Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS) Based on VirtualSharp Software

New Service for SMBs Assures Recovery to the Cloud

MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- VirtualSharp Software, the leading provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, today announced that NSIS Systems' outsourcing/hosting business FailSafeSolutions has based its RaaS platform on VirtualSharp's ReliableDR so that SMBs can protect their vital applications and guarantee recovery without having to invest in their own secondary data center.

"The new partnership with VirtualSharp Software has provided NSIS Systems the ability to provide cost effective Disaster Recovery for the VMware Virtual Platform," said Stephan Buys, Managing Director of NSIS Systems. "VirtualSharp's ReliableDR is a great product which provides the end user with an easy-to-use interface to manage their Disaster Recovery setup. The continuous and automated testing of the recovery virtual machines ensures that the end users always have functional recovery points to fail over to. NSIS Systems is looking forward to a long term partnership with VirtualSharp."

Using VirtualSharp's ReliableDR, NSIS Systems' FailSafeSolutions can now offer companies a safe infrastructure within their data centers and ensure a fully automated Disaster Recovery process from the infrastructure components all the way up the application stack. As ReliableDR constantly tests and measures against the service level agreements defined, not only will applications be brought back up successfully by FailSafeSolutions' service, but they will also fully meet the contractual agreements with their customers. ReliableDR enforces recovery point objectives and predicts recovery time actuals at the application level and gives customers continuous insight in the status of Disaster Recovery readiness of their applications via a web portal without the need to install anything on-premise.

"We chose the innovative Disaster RaaS platform provided by NSIS Systems because it enables us to have peace of mind that our applications would be recoverable in case of outage," said Willem du Toit, Financial Controller at STAR Capital Partners.

"The Disaster Recovery platform provided by NSIS Systems ensures that our ability to recover is in line with our Business Continuity policy, and that an issue with our production applications would not lead to a business critical impact," said Stephen Cook, IT Manager at Bishopsgate Institute.

"We're very pleased with NSIS Systems joining our fast growing Cloud Services Providers (CSP) community," said Michael Hillewaert, VP of International Sales at VirtualSharp Software. "We developed our CSP solution with the needs of service providers in mind to improve the reliability and simplify the processes of RaaS. Service level agreements, simplified deployment, reporting and end user visibility are all embedded in our unique solution."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
