Service Providers Employ Certeon aCelera Solution to Help Companies Move Into the Cloud

Fluid Consulting Delivers Backup, Replication & Virtual Machine Hosting in the Cloud With Certeon's aCelera Solution

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2011) - Certeon, the leader in delivering virtual appliance solutions for optimizing applications in the cloud, today announced that Fluid Consulting of Plano, Texas, is leveraging Certeon's aCelera to accelerate backup and replication and Virtual Machine (VM) hosting in their Fluid Cloud service offering. Early adoption of Fluid's new services has been strong with 100% of their customers signing on for the suite of cloud offerings.

"aCelera allows Fluid Consulting to offer organizations what is unquestionably the fastest and most cost efficient way to move into our cloud, regardless of whether the environment is physical or virtual," said Wade Yeaman, founder and CEO of Fluid Consulting. "In addition to shortening replication times by up to 90%, my customers are avoiding the need to buy additional bandwidth as well as reducing the bandwidth required to complete replications. Customers are expecting to realize ROI within a year." He concluded, "aCelera has become a strategic asset and critical component in how we get our customers' Virtual Machines on-boarded to the cloud and then it enables customers to use the applications as if they were on their own LAN. The value of aCelera cannot be overstated."

aCelera is the only application delivery optimization solution that supports all common hypervisors. Cost effective, aCelera is deployed as a virtual appliance, and is a significantly more scalable, flexible and secure solution for Service Providers and businesses than traditional, hardware WAN optimization appliances. The aCelera portfolio includes: aCelera Enterprise and aCelera Windows, aCelera Mobile, a client application for laptops, and aCelera Sync for more efficient storage backup and recovery across a WAN. aCelera offers:

  • Secure and affordable access to the cloud for any size businesses
  • Faster response time, opening files is instantaneous for the user -- as if the server is onsite
  • Easy implementation for a cost effective disaster recovery plan with a significantly shorter replication window

According to an article in The Wall Street Journal by Erik Holm and Leslie Scism, disaster losses in 2011 were the highest on record, totalling $350 Billion. These global disasters included the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, the severe flooding in Thailand and the tremendous loss from tornadoes here in the United States. Clearly the need for backup and recovery has never been greater and the cloud services being enabled by Certeon's aCelera only make this necessity easier and more affordable.

Peter Dougherty, CEO of Certeon, said, "With its extraordinary time to service and flexibility advantages, unsurprisingly, the cloud is being flooded by backup, replication and virtual machine hosting services traffic. By employing aCelera Sync as a critical enabling component of their cloud offerings, Service Providers are in a position to allow their customers -- of any size -- to easily, quickly and cost-effectively evolve from the costly traditional, single-purpose IT infrastructure to get securely on-board and running applications like backup in a transparent cloud service in minutes. Fluid joins other Service Providers using aCelera to increase the availability, security and shorten time to services for their customers."
