OpSource Cloud backs up data centre clients with Atempo

Atempo : 16 October, 2009  (Application Story)
Time Navigator from Atempo is providing cloud backup capabilities for OpSource's by-the-hour data protection clients
Atempo, a provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, has announced that OpSource, a Cloud operations company, has selected Atempo Time Navigator for backup and data protection of all its client infrastructures, including traditional hosting, virtualised services and cloud-based offerings. With Atempo Time Navigator running at all four of its data centres, OpSource is able to provide cost-effective, scalable backup for the diverse services they host, including the virtualised environments of their newly launched OpSource Cloud. OpSource Cloud, the first Cloud to bring together the availability, flexibility and community of the public Cloud with the security, performance and control the enterprise requires, is now in public Beta and available for on-line purchase by the hour.


OpSource hosts a broad range of IT services for hundreds of companies including software-as-a-service vendors, web-based businesses and enterprises. To effectively manage their complex environments, OpSource places a premium on scalability, flexibility and efficiency - attributes their existing online backup provider was lacking. After a rigorous evaluation process, OpSource concluded that Atempo Time Navigator offered the best combination of capabilities and value, and would best enable the company to grow their business and offer new services. The software stood out based on its broad application and platform coverage as well as its complete support for virtualised environments, which ensures that every file, platform and system is covered. Other deciding factors were Atempo's utility-based reporting and subscription-based pricing - two key capabilities for OpSource's pay-as-you go service model.


"OpSource customers depend on the quality, flexibility and reliability of our services on a continual basis, which requires that we offer data protection that meets our standards of scalability and performance," said John Rowell, CTO at OpSource. "Atempo Time Navigator delivers on both fronts, and allows us to realise significant returns on our investment. With Atempo, we now spend 70% less per Gigabyte of data being backed up. Given that OpSource manages upwards of 200 terabytes of data, these savings provide a big boost to our bottom line, and allow us to in turn focus on delivering the best Cloud experience possible for our large and varied client base."

Atempo Time Navigator is a secured, tiered and highly scalable heterogeneous data protection solution for complex, mission-critical environments. Through its unique time navigation feature, it supports high speed data restoration from any point in time, enabling quicker eDiscovery and improved business performance. The software combines the best of data protection and storage security to enable companies to meet critical business requirements for data privacy, regulatory compliance and non-repudiated long-term retention of data. Its graphical user interface makes it easy to manage snapshots, replication, disk and tape backups, and recovery operations in addition to simplifying the management of multiple servers and remote sites.

"Atempo Time Navigator's proven success in large and complex storage environments makes it optimised for hosted IT providers like OpSource to ensure powerful data protection across a wide spectrum of platforms and storage media required by their customers," said Bob Hickey, VP of Sales, North America & APAC of Atempo. "This is clearly demonstrated across OpSource's four data centers, where critical backup is needed for an array of devices, while a single administrative console allows for efficient and effective control. Atempo simply turns data management of complex environments into a smooth process."
