Designing a disaster recovery solution is about finding a balance between data protection and affordability. While colocations offer rapid disaster recovery and business continuity in hours or even minutes, they are an expensive and high maintenance option. Lower cost data protection, through tape or disk backup, may cost less, but comes with a much higher price in longer recovery times.
TwinStrata Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) helps find the balance between these two options by giving you affordable, on-demand disaster recovery.
Join us for this webinar on Thursday, May 30, to learn how TwinStrata's new DRaaS offering can help provide your organization with a rapid and reliable disaster recovery solution, that fits easily into your budget

June 20, 2013
Join us for a webinar featuring Bit9 Director of IT, Bill Suarez, as he walks you through the company's decision to turn to cloud storage to handle their offsite data protection program and what happened when he was actually faced with a disaster scenario.
This webinar will also feature a demonstration about TwinStrata's CloudArray software and the encryption and data protection features that made it an ideal choice for a security company like Bit9.
This webinar sponsored by Google Cloud Storage and TwinStrata discusses how to address some of the common and often devastating issues surrounding the storage and management of data.
Analyst Marc Staimer of Dragon Slayer Consulting will examine in depth the problems created, common workarounds and why they fail, and a simpler, far more effective alternative.
Among the issues discussed are offsite backup, offsite active archiving, business continuity, disaster recovery, disaster tolerance and scaling capacities in the data center and in the public cloud.
You'll be sure to learn something that you'll be able to use immediately to make you more effective at your job.
Nearly 25% of current cloud storage users estimate that they could recover their data instantaneously in the event of a disaster. An additional 55% say they would be able to do so in less than 24 hours. Can you say the same?
This webinar discusses how organizations are using Veeam Backup & Replication with TwinStrata CloudArray to provide a powerful solution for system backups with automatic offsite data retention.
You'll hear directly from their customer Jerry Nelson who will discuss how Open Solutions (now part of Fiserv) has implemented cloud-based disaster recovery solution to replace their previous tape-based backup strategy.
The webinar also features a quick demonstration on how Veeam and TwinStrata work together to deliver cost-effective and nearly unlimited access to cloud storage to address your backup challenges.
In a recent survey, more than two-thirds of respondents with plans to implement cloud storage agreed "It seems like we are always running out of storage." Sound familiar?
Meanwhile, a separate study of TwinStrata customers revealed that 4 out of 5 customers who have used TwinStrata for more than three months reported have lowered operational expenses and improved disaster recovery, and 7 out of 10 reported lower capital expenses and reduced overall maintenance.
How did they achieve it?
Join Nicos Vekiarides, CEO of TwinStrata, on January 31st at 2PM EST (11AM PST) as he walks through how TwinStrata’s customers have implemented cloud storage to achieve these benefits.
You’ll hear about how and why customers have implemented cloud storage, and you’ll see how customers have compounded the benefits of cloud storage over time.
On November 5th, TwinStrata announced CloudArray 4.0, the latest release of its cloud-integrated storage solution, that seamlessly integrates enterprise-class storage capabilities with cloud storage, further reducing IT budget, time and specialized skills required by traditional data storage. The new CloudArray 4.0 line of appliances deliver flexibility, continuous data access and improved manageability to organizations of all sizes.
This webinar walks through the complete CloudArray solution, with special attention focused on new features, including:
- Native NAS support (in addition to SAN)
- A fully integrated line of high-availability appliances
- The availability of in-cloud appliances (in addition to the typical virtual and physical options)
- Improved management functions delivering advanced visibility
Register to hear from TwinStrata CEO Nicos Vekiarides about how CloudArray 4.0 combines choice, simplicity and affordability into a storage platform with nearly unlimited capacity.
There’s no question that having an effective backup and archival storage strategy is critical to your organization. But that doesn’t mean you need to spend so much time on it. Wouldn’t it be nice to just set it and forget it? No more tape. No more capacity problems. Lower resource requirements. And quick, easy access to your data whenever you need it – even after disaster strikes.
On November 1st, experts from Amazon Web Services, TwinStrata and ZSL Associates will discuss how their customers are using cloud storage to reclaim the time and resources previously devoted to backup and archive. What’s more – their new cloud-enabled strategy delivers greater access and nearly unlimited capacity at lower costs and minimal maintenance.
Join this webinar to hear how you can get rid of your backup and archive headaches.
If you think "disaster recovery" when you hear "cloud storage," you're not alone. And it certainly makes sense - data that's backed up and stored off-site automatically that can be accessed from "elsewhere" in the event of a disaster? It's practically disaster recovery nirvana.
But there's so much more to cloud storage then disaster recovery (there's so much more to disaster recovery too, but that's the topic for another webinar!). In this webinar, we explore some of the other things you can do with cloud storage:
- Get rid of your tape-based backup
- Make your archive data accessible and free up capacity at the same time
- Say goodbye to provisioning and constant SAN upgrades with instant access to nearly unlimited capacity
- Centrally manage storage requirements for multiple sites from a single pool of resources
Hear from TwinStrata as we explain how TwinStrata's customers have reclaimed time and budget by turning to cloud storage for all of these needs.
3 Steps to Eliminate Storage Administration Headaches: From Storage Management to Storage Value
Today, the data center is moving from virtualization to cloud computing, with an eye toward reducing IT complexity and costs while increasing flexibility and business responsiveness. In reality 60-70% of IT budgets are devoted to maintaining existing infrastructures not on creating business value. IT personnel are stretched too thin to truly respond to the needs of the business and spend most of their time just keeping up. This is particularly true when it comes to the storage infrastructure. Countless hours and millions of dollars are spent on the “must-haves” of provisioning, performance tuning, expansion, backup, archival, disaster recovery, as a necessary cost of doing business.
In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland, IBM and TwinStrata will share their insight on steps that IT can take to reduce the amount of time spent on the storage must haves so that they can instead focus on initiatives devoted to business value.
Extending SANs to the Cloud
Storage area networks (SANs) have become the de facto model for data storage systems. Yet, in a recent survey, 5 out of 6 respondents indicated that they were already using or planning to use cloud storage. Clearly IT administrators are now rethinking the traditional SAN in light of new technologies and economic models enabled by the cloud.
In fact, the traditional SAN has a number of challenges:
- An outdated capital and administratively intensive economic model
- 3-5 year life cycles, requiring costly upgrades and migrations that introduce considerable business risk
- Scalability and flexibility limitations across geographic distances
- Substantial additional infrastructure for disaster recovery
Join this webinar where we will discuss how cloud storage and cloud storage gateways can overcome these limitations using a pay-as-you-go cost model, unlimited capacity, multi-site scalability and even cloud-based disaster recovery without dedicated infrastructure and resources.
Learn how Cloud SANs are rapidly becoming a new approach to building and enhancing storage area networks.
What Attendees will learn:
- How cloud storage can be used as another tier of storage
- Why cloud storage reduces maintenance demands
- How cloud storage changes storage economics
- The benefits customers experience as a result of cloud storage
Today's storage environment is changing rapidly. Sticking with old school methods for backup, archive and disaster recovery often result in your business being vulnerable to the unexpected and your IT resources wasted on low-value administrative tasks.
Isn't it time to modernize your storage environment?
View this webinar where we discuss how to modernize your storage environment using a combination of HP Cloud and TwinStrata CloudArray. You'll see a live demonstration to showcase how you can make cloud storage as safe, easy and accessible as local storage.
