Teneros Launches New Hosted Disaster Recovery Service to Preserve Critical Email Continuity

Barrier Lowered for Deploying Disaster Recovery; Affordable, Secure Solution Ensures Access to Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory and BlackBerry Enterprise Server

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - From natural disasters to simple human error -- messaging outages are a constant threat, and can wreak financial havoc on businesses. Teneros™, Inc., a market leader in messaging solutions, today announced the launch of its new disaster recovery offering, DR-as-a-Service, a hosted solution for critical network and communication applications such as Microsoft® Exchange, BlackBerry®, Active Directory, and DNS. The new service offers significant advantages for businesses seeking to ensure comprehensive, rapid and seamless recovery from site-level failures and outages.

Teneros DR-as-a-Service provides enterprises of all sizes with a global disaster recovery solution, but requires no upfront capital expenditure. The new hosted service leverages Teneros Instant-On™ failover recovery and replication technologies that underpin the company's existing high availability (HA) and disaster recovery solutions for email and unified communications. DR-as-a-Service offers the expanded capability of addressing businesses' holistic IT infrastructure and DR planning requirements. Increasingly, businesses are deploying and managing an array of diverse applications and services in support of mission critical activities. DR-as-a-Service addresses this complexity and allows businesses to prioritize disaster recovery initiatives based on the value and priority of content delivered by the applications. The new service provides application-aware DR across three components of enterprise DR planning -- network, communication and information.

In addition to eliminating the need for costly datacenter and hardware deployment, DR-as-a-Service mitigates the ongoing operational costs of managing a DR solution for a business' complete IT infrastructure. Previously, small and medium sized businesses have lacked the budget and technical expertise to justify the cost of a DR solution to be used for emergency restoration. DR-as-a-Service dramatically lowers the ongoing operational cost of ownership of a complete DR solution by eliminating the need for dedicated in-house clustering expertise. Teneros dedicated 24X7 monitoring ensures adequate bandwidth allocation and software management, including updates, patches and compliance enforcement. Using DR-as-a-Service, businesses can deploy IT resources in support of their core competency and rest assured that Teneros DR-as-a-Service will be available in the untimely occurrence of a site-level disruption.

Recognizing that email is now the most widely utilized communication medium in the business world, Ben Petro, president and CEO of Teneros commented that, "Our DR-as-a-Service represents another milestone in our product strategy, which is focused on ensuring always-on, available and accessible email. Teneros is the industry leader in delivering email and messaging continuity via appliances. The Teneros hosted DR-as-a-Service broadens our Always-On™ product suite to address enterprises' expanding application continuity requirements across their entire IT infrastructure. This SaaS offering is the first complete disaster recovery solution that not only protects the sophisticated corporate IT infrastructure, but also provides an affordable solution for mission critical SMB applications."
