August 28th, 2017 – NewCloud Networks, a global cloud computing and communications provider, today announced the release of NewCloud Availability, a new offering in its disaster recovery portfolio, which leverages VMware vCloud® Availability for vCloud Director® to seamlessly protect customers’ VMware vSphere® environments. As a member of the VMware Cloud Provider™ program, NewCloud Networks will offer cost-effective cloud-based disaster recovery on its Global Ultra-Low Latency Network in 12 locations.
A disaster recovery plan enables organizations to have peace of mind when preparing for potential downtime and loss of data resulting from a natural disaster or equipment failure can be minimized. Organizations that want to minimize the costs of infrastructure and software needed for a secondary or tertiary disaster recovery site can now utilize NewCloud Networks’ cloud as recovery infrastructure. With NewCloud Disaster Recovery, firms can save by using a subscription-based service instead of making capital investments into physical infrastructure.
VMware vCloud Availability for vCloud Director enables simple, cloud-based disaster recovery solutions for vSphere environments. vCloud Availability is easy for customers to set up and manage. It allows for customers to leverage native vSphere replication to deliver rapid, on-demand protection of onsite applications and enable non-disruptive testing, giving customers peace of mind.
“Driven by lower costs and higher flexibility, disaster recovery has become a point of entry for many businesses to shift to the cloud.” said Sam V. Kumar, president at NewCloud Networks, “All that these companies need is the right cloud provider with the right cloud-based service. NewCloud is proud to offer VMware vCloud Availability as part of our NewCloud Disaster Recovery portfolio and to continue to provide our customers with the best solutions, delivered on our Ultra-Low Latency Network, every time.”
“Organizations continue to seek ways to protect their operations from downtime and loss of data. With more applications, systems and data to protect than ever before, having a disaster recovery plan in place is important,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Provider Software Business Unit, VMware. “We are pleased that NewCloud Networks has enhanced their DRaaS portfolio with vCloud Availability, and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
NewCloud Networks sought a VMware solution in order to expand its disaster recovery platform and offer its customers a best-in-breed solution.
