SUNNYVALE, Calif. – March 27, 2012 – Zetta.net, a provider of enterprise-grade online backup and disaster recovery solutions, today unveiled the next generation of its flagship cloud service. 

Zetta DataProtect 3.0 brings enterprise-grade cloud data protection for small and mid-size enterprises in a single managed service that requires no appliances and can be deployed within minutes. It simplifies and automates backups of critical IT assets and enables businesses to access and instantly recover critical files, directories or entire file systems from anywhere via the Web. Advanced security, high redundancy and a high-performance architecture deliver true enterprise-grade data protection that scales to meet customers’ business requirements.

"Fast, uninterrupted access to data is increasingly important to the livelihood of businesses today - when a system failure occurs, having to wait for data access and recovery for any period of time is just painful," said James Bagley, senior analyst, Storage Strategies NOW. "Zetta's cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solution is uniquely based on an extremely efficient protocol that enables distinct throughput advantages and, as a result, users have immediate access to their data whenever there may be a problem. And with enterprise-grade features in a service that is user friendly, instantly scalable, and affordable, Zetta's solution is especially attractive to small and medium businesses." 

"Backups for us involved a lot of variables such as tape rotations, hardware issues, complex software and management complexity challenges as our data requirements continued to grow," said Larry Steinke, technology director for Saint Francis High School in Mountain View, California. "Zetta's online backup and recovery solution is simple and easy and automates the whole process for us. It allows me to have peace of mind knowing our backups are running seamlessly and if needed, we can recover our data instantly with no business disruption."

Zetta simplifies and automates offsite backups of servers and laptops, helping to eliminate tapes and significantly increase the reliability of backups and data recovery. New features include:

  • Expanded data protection to include SQL, Windows system state, and MS Exchange, in addition to unstructured data (files), VM Ware, and data restore to dissimilar hardware from the cloud.
  • Expanded platform support to include Mac in addition to Windows and Linux
  • Significantly increased data transfer speeds with local metadata cache, de-duplication and advanced network data compression

"Small and mid-size enterprises are generally staying away from consumer cloud services and are looking for enterprise-grade solutions that until recently were available only to large corporations," said Gary Sevounts, vice president of marketing, Zetta.net. "Zetta DataProtect delivers enterprise-grade data protection with geographically dispersed SAS70 data centers, highly optimized infrastructure for fast backups and data recovery, as well as the ability to instantly recover files and directories from anywhere using just a Web browser.
