Today at VentureBeat's CloudBeat 2012, VirtualSharp Software, the leading
provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private
and public clouds, announced record momentum for ReliableDR a year after
launching version 3.0 at VentureBeat's CloudBeat 2011.
Disaster Recovery is a mandatory part of Business Continuity Planning that
needs to be tested frequently for reliability and accuracy. Disaster Recovery
testing used to be expensive and cumbersome but virtualization and cloud have
made it easy and effective. Automated recovery processes in the cloud ensure
that Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) become
'Actuals' (RPA/RTA) and organizations can guarantee compliance with corporate
Business Continuity policies.
"We make Disaster Recovery testing a mundane and predictable task handled by
software without human intervention," said Carlos Escapa, CEO and Co-Founder of
VirtualSharp Software. "Service level agreements are tracked and enforced
automatically, auditable anytime without disruption. We're seeing accelerating
demand for our Disaster Recovery solutions as awareness grows regarding the ease
and convenience of multi-cloud orchestration."

- Doubled the number of paying customers and quadrupled the number of VMware
