CACI partnership will reduce time and cost for system recovery
appzero cloud migration accreditation is UK first
3rd July 2012, London - New software could halve the cost involved in transporting, storing, testing and replacing backup systems for disaster recovery, as part of a system for backing up critical IT systems through cloud computing.
CACI, a leading supplier of IT software and consultancy services, has become the first UK appzero partner, providing accreditation to deliver cloud migration services that slash the time, labour and costs associated with transferring production applications to any cloud.
For IT professionals, the service will remove the time-consuming exercise of backing up systems by tape or CD for traditional disaster recovery systems. Meanwhile, for companies already using cloud backup, it means a much more effective way to synchronise primary and backup systems at regular intervals.
Commenting on the partnership, Simon Tyrrell, VP & Director of CACI's Digital Solutions Division said: "The increasing reliance on business critical IT systems means that even short periods of downtime can result in significant business disruption and financial loss. Swift, effective backup and recovery is now essential and, as a result of this partnership, CACI's disaster recovery solutions will remove the time-intensive practices for backing up the IT systems at the heart of business."
The new partnership and accreditation will strengthen CACI's offerings around cloud computing, particularly for services such as disaster recovery where a migration tool like appzero can move services to a new physical or virtual server almost instantaneously, with little or no downtime.
appzero CEO Greg O'Connor said: "As the enterprise appetite for cloud utilization grows, there remain a huge number of server-side applications that need to be migrated. Datacenter bound, they stand between the promise and the realization of cloud cost saving and agility. Our partner program is designed to revolutionize the economics of cloud on-boarding. The time and labor savings are dramatic with our customers reporting going from a two week process down to less than a day with zapp."
Patent-pending zapp migration automates on-boarding of complex server-side applications to any cloud destination, with no changes to the application. System Integrators (SIs) in the program receive training and product on which to build and accelerate cloud migration practices. Cloud providers in this program have access to skilled SIs to move customer applications to the cloud whilst enterprise customers find a cost-effective channel for cloud migration.
