Incentra Offers Secure Replication Service with EMC Avamar

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Incentra, LLC, a provider of complete IT solutions to enterprise companies and managed service providers throughout North America and Europe, today announced a new Secure Replication Service delivered with EMC Avamar. This new offering automates the offsite replication of customer backup data to improve disaster recovery capabilities and is the latest addition to Incentra's portfolio of managed storage services.

EMC Avamar is a global deduplication backup and recovery solution that provides disk-based data protection for customers. The latest addition to Incentra's broad portfolio of outsourcing services, Incentra's Secure Replication Service addresses the up-front cost and ongoing operational challenges associated with offsite data protection.

"Affordable disaster recovery services for the mid-market are increasing in demand as clients look to improve business resiliency," says Thomas Sweeney, CEO, Incentra. "This new, additional managed service helps those customers looking for offsite, geographically dispersed data replication that doesn't break the budget. Our new managed service provides a valuable option to fulfill these needs. This service supports replication from new systems, as well from the many existing Avamar systems deployed today. Incentra delivers the service on a subscription basis, for as much as 60% less then clients can build on their own," continued Sweeney.

Incentra's Secure Replication infrastructures are designed on Dell and EMC technology. These infrastructures are housed in our data center partner, FORTRUST's, high availability, SAS 70 Type II facility. The service, systems and processes are monitored 24x7 by Incentra's Network Operations Center located in Colorado. Performance reporting, alerts, historical analysis and ordering are available through the Incentra GridWorks?? portal. With the new Secure Replication Service, the customer's backup data is automatically replicated over an encrypted VPN link. Data may be restored over the wire or with HDD media.

With Incentra's managed storage services, IT departments save up-front capital, ongoing data center space, power and bandwidth costs and staffing effort to manage a remote system. IT managers also benefit from the real time alerts and reporting provided through GridWorks and peace of mind from knowing the service is being monitored and managed 24x7 by highly skilled data protection specialists and backed by industry leading SLAs.
