Cosentry brings Recovery as a Service to the Midwest market

 
 
Cosentry expands DR portfolio with launch of Geminare’s award-winning RaaS solution.
 
December 11th, 2013, Palo Alto, CA and Omaha, NE – Cosentry, the leader in Midwest Data Center Services, today announced the extension of its Disaster Recovery Services (DRS) with the launch of Cosentry Cloud Recovery, in partnership with the world leader in Recovery as a Service (RaaS), Geminare.  Delivered from Cosentry’s world-class data centers in Lenexa, KS and Omaha, NE, Cosentry’s real-time cloud-based replication service is ideally suited for enterprises seeking to leverage Cosentry’s premium cloud infrastructure and data centers to protect their business applications from the crippling cost and complexity of system downtime. 
 
Craig Hurley, Cosentry’s VP of Product Management, commented, “Cosentry’s rapid growth in the last decade has stemmed from our unwavering determination to bring our clients the best possible data center solutions that cater to their need for superior reliability, performance and security.  Our commitment is to always be at the leading edge in terms of emerging technologies, ensuring that our existing and prospective customers are able to take advantage of breakthrough technology.  To that end, we are delighted to add Geminare’s exceptional Recovery as a Service (RaaS) offering to the Cosentry family of business continuity solutions.  Cosentry’s partnership with Geminare, the acknowledged global leader in this space, will afford our customers the opportunity to economically realize unparalleled protection for their businesses.”
 
Cosentry’s new service launch comes at a time when major analysts are highlighting the burgeoning RaaS market opportunity.  
 
  • Gartner’s November 2013 Critical Capabilities Assessment (CCA) of the Recovery as a Service (RaaS) Market estimates a global RaaS market of $564m in 2013 with a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21% over the next three years.  
  • A November 2013 TechNavio industry report predicts a market valued at US$5.7B million by 2018, and names Geminare as “one of the major pure-play cloud-based disaster recovery solution vendors that is dominating the RaaS space.”  
  • MarketsandMarkets May 2013 report states, “The global RaaS and cloud based business continuity market is forecasted to grow from $640.8 million in 2013 to $5.77 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of 55.2%.”  
Hurley added, “Markets grow rapidly when the services deliver outstanding value to the widest possible audience.  Thanks to our partnership with Geminare, customers throughout the US, can now have full access to the many benefits of RaaS while leveraging Cosentry’s Midwest data centers.”
 
Geminare’s CEO, Joshua Geist, commented, “Cosentry is a world-class organization, and its values and customer-first philosophy align closely with Geminare’s.  I’m confident that Cosentry’s reputation for providing clients meaningful solutions to the challenges they face will be further enhanced through the addition of RaaS to its already impressive DR portfolio.  I am thrilled to welcome Cosentry as a Geminare partner and its customers to a new level of RaaS service delivery.” 
Cosentry Cloud Recovery is available immediately.
