BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2014) - Panthera Technologies, a professional service organization providing business strategy and technology consulting, today announced that it has expanded the breadth and depth of its cloud offerings. Panthera Technologies is now providing a full suite of cloud-based business solutions, including virtual desktops, secure and compliant cloud servers, disaster recovery and backup as a service, all powered by Cirrity, a secure cloud solutions provider.
"In order to succeed today, businesses must be agile and responsive, and cloud-enabled technologies fulfill those needs," said J. Todd Jennings, President and CEO of Panthera Technologies. "With the ability to quickly provision virtual desktops that provide anytime, anywhere access for a mobile workforce, plus the assurance that mission-critical data is protected and available should a disaster occur, companies can focus on their business rather than worrying about technology."
Panthera Technologies' virtual desktops, known as Desktops as a Service (DaaS), allow employees to access Windows desktops, applications and proprietary programs from anywhere, using any device. It's easy to provide temporary, contract and mobile workforces with a secure, fully managed virtual desktop. With DaaS, powered by VMware Horizon™ DaaS®, corporate data is not retained on the employee endpoint.
In case of a disaster, DaaS can play an important role in business continuity. Employees do not have to be physically present at the office to be able to access their desktops and conduct business.
With Panthera Technologies' secure, compliant cloud servers, companies can create a hybrid or full cloud compute environment that reduces expensive hardware upgrades and improves security and access. Panthera's cloud is protected with Veeam® Software and built on enterprise-class hardware with a Cisco/NetApp FlexPod platform that exceeds industry standards for security and compliance, providing the confidence for companies to operate securely in the cloud.
This secure, reliable cloud technology is the backbone of vStream™, a real-time, cloud-based disaster recovery solution, powered by Zerto. Leveraging VMware's leading-edge Hypervisor technology, vStream uses a secure, encrypted connection to continuously replicate data to the cloud, ensuring that should a company's physical location be damaged, the business can continue operations.
The company will offer backup as a service powered by Veeam. The service, which includes backup to the cloud, eliminates the capital cost of hardware and software for backup while meeting compliance and security mandates in fields such as healthcare, financial services and e-commerce.
Panthera Technologies continues to set the standard for application development, managed services, system infrastructure design and comprehensive security services.
