Virtacore Systems and PHD Virtual Technologies Partner to Provide Data Backup and Recovery in the Cloud

STERLING, VA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Virtacore Systems, Inc., announced today that they will be utilizing PHD Virtual Backup as one of their data protection offerings for secure public and private cloud backup and recovery. The partnership brings together Virtacore Systems, an industry leader in hybrid cloud services, who powers their public and private clouds using VMware® virtualization technologies, and PHD Virtual Backup, with solutions built specifically for virtualized VMware environments, making the partnership a natural choice.

"The partnership with PHD Virtual enables us to deliver reliable, high performance data protection for our leading cloud computing solutions," said George Naspo, CEO. "The PHD Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA™) Architecture gives us a solution that is simple to deploy and provides seamless scalability for our growing public and private cloud offerings. We found their integrated source-side data deduplication technology to be superior, enabling us to dramatically reduce and optimize the amount of storage required to provide backup and recovery."

As data protection is a priority when utilizing virtualization and cloud computing, PHD Virtual Backup enables backup and recovery to be deployed as a virtualized workload directly on the VMware platform, further leveraging virtualization to back up the virtual environment. This revolutionary approach enables high-performance data protection that seamlessly scales for large and distributed deployments, a significant benefit for cloud service providers.

"Virtacore Systems partners with industry leaders, and we are proud to work together to provide integrated backup and recovery as part of their public and private cloud services," stated Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO, PHD Virtual. "Our solutions continue to benefit from a significant competitive advantage for Service Provider environments due to the flexibility and scalability of our unique technology. The selection of PHD Virtual Backup by Virtacore highlights and reinforces this fact."
