Storage Switzerland Lab Test Validates as Next Generation Appliance-Free Online Backup and Recovery Solution for the SME

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 17, 2012) -, a provider of enterprise-grade online backup and disaster recovery solutions, today announced the results of a Storage Switzerland lab review that validates Zetta DataProtect as the next generation enterprise-grade server backup solution for small and medium sized enterprises that doesn't require appliances and can be deployed within minutes.

The Storage Switzerland video review demonstrates the ease in which Zetta DataProtect was deployed and configured. From day one, it ran flawlessly on both Windows and Mac platforms. Granular data recovery was also simple with several options. The easiest method was mounting replicated file systems of backed up servers as web drives on a local system and just dragging and dropping the files that were needed.

"One of the key benefits was the speed with which we were able to get the system up and running, due to its 'appliance-less' design," said George Crump, president, Storage Switzerland. "As a software-only solution that required no appliances or other hardware, installation was very simple -- just install the agent and let it start replicating data to the Zetta cloud. This can be a significant advantage for backup administrators who need to deploy the agent across multiple offices or remote users."

"Our enterprise-grade features, such as encryption, high performance and data redundancy across disks, nodes and datacenters give our customers an added level of assurance that they just can't get with consumer-grade cloud backup or file-sharing providers," said Gary Sevounts, vice president of marketing, "And unlike other commercial-grade backup services, we don't burden IT departments with managing yet another appliance. has designed a lightweight multi-platform (Linux, Windows and Mac OS) software client that outperforms appliances, delivers instant data recovery over the web, and can be deployed within minutes."
