PHD Virtual Acquires VirtualSharp

Written by Roy Mikes on Tuesday, 02 April 2013. Posted in General

Adds Disaster Recovery Solution

PHD Virtual provides known from virtual backups for VMware, Citrix, Cloud and monitoring solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments. 

PHD Virtual's newest innovation features direct backup to the cloud through CloudHook I've recently blogged about. Together with their latest version of PHD Virtual Backup 6.2, CloudHook was designed from the ground up for no-hassle cloud backup and recovery that doesn’t break the bank.

PHD Virtual Announced today the acquires of VirtualSharp. VirtualSharp Software was founded in 2010 to address the new Disaster Recovery needs for the cloud era and was recently named a Cool Vendor in Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery Management by Gartner. So they are fairly new to the field, but have quickly become a gigantic player. VirtualSharp Software develops next-generation Disaster Recovery solutions for virtual datacenters and private cloud. The software makes it possible to add new levels of resiliency for virtual IT infrastructures and full alignment between IT Disaster Recovery and corporate Business Continuity Planning. VirtualSharp is an elite-level VMware Technology Alliance Partner. As an elite partner, VirtualSharp benefits from priority access to VMware’s development and support organizations, as well as gaining advanced notification of new features, new APIs and technology roadmap innovations.

With the acquisition of VirtualSharp, PHD Virtual delivers transformational technology for virtual backup and disaster recovery assurance providing the easiest, most affordable solutions for data protection and business continuity, automatically certifying achievement of Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). 

Like PHD, VirtualSharp has also received accolades for its assertive growth and was recently named one of the Top 10 Fastest Growing Storage Start-Ups in 2012 by StorageNewsletter. The cost and complexity of virtual backup and virtual disaster recovery management continues to increase as the number of virtual machines in production continues to grow. The acquisition of VirtualSharp by PHD Virtual was definitely a smart move to complete their portfolio and gain a competitive advantage against other similar vendors. PHD already provide a virtual backup, replication and recovery products and with the addition of ReliableDR they have now added application-aware disaster recovery assurance into their portfolio. This addition means that PHD can offer a solution that not only focuses on the ability to restore data, but also makes sure that this can be done within RPO and RTO limits. Something that is very important to all businesses DR plans.

You can try ReliableDR for free here: http://www.phdvirtual.com/try-it-now/phd-reliableDR

So far it looks awesome and can't wait to get my hand on it!
