SingleHop Extends Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Offerings with Support for Veeam Availability Suite v9 and Veeam Cloud Connect Replication

SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand managed cloud services, today announced that it is among the first service providers to fully support Veeam Availability Suite v9, enabling completely integrated, fast and secure Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS) to protect mission-critical applications and data in the cloud.

Through the multi-tenancy and networking capabilities built into Veeam Cloud Connect, SingleHop provides full failover capabilities for virtualized, production environments to a remote DR site, providing all of the CPU, RAM, storage and networking resources DR customers need. This eliminates the substantial infrastructure costs and complexities customers experience when maintaining their own DR sites. Customers can easily select which workloads to replicate to the SingleHop cloud, right from their Veeam consoles, without making any changes to the environments themselves.

SingleHop has seen more than 300 percent quarter-over-quarter growth in its business continuity product lines in the last three quarters of 2015. The growth has largely been driven by SingleHop's Backup as a Service (BaaS) offering, delivered through Veeam Cloud Connect to customers looking to take advantage of the seamless integration between Veeam and cloud service providers like SingleHop.

"SingleHop is one of the fastest growing Veeam Cloud & Service Provider partners in North America, increasing their commitment to Veeam by more than a factor of 10 in 2015," said Matt Kalmenson, North America vice president of service and cloud provider sales for Veeam. "The company's innovation, execution, and technical expertise make them a leader among the VCSP partners in our program."

Meeting the Needs of Modern Businesses

Today's businesses require 100 percent availability and have extremely limited tolerance for downtime and data loss. SingleHop's Veeam-powered disaster recovery service delivers both a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of just 15 minutes.

"We're making disaster recovery less of a pain point and business risk to our customers," said Jordan Jacobs, vice president of products for SingleHop. "Veeam's latest DR technology puts reliable, cost-effective and secure failover capabilities within reach of hundreds of thousands of customers. When combined with SingleHop's enterprise grade production cloud storage, our joint customers can enjoy a worry-free failover solution. That's huge for IT administrators struggling to meet strict RTO and RPO objectives set by their managers."

As part of its disaster recovery service, SingleHop developed a proprietary, secure seeding system that allows customers to safely and securely transfer large amounts of data into SingleHop's enterprise, production-grade cloud storage without the need to transmit it over the internet, which can take a disproportionate amount of time, bandwidth and expense.

Holistic Continuity Solutions for Every Level

Disaster Recovery thresholds differ dramatically across applications and companies depending on several factors including the critical nature of the data and regulatory compliance requirements. SingleHop offers multiple cloud-based business continuity and DR solutions, affording customers the right balance of RTO, RPO and cost to meet their unique business needs.
