Asean representatives of UltraBac data protection solutions, Vanilla Applications, has signed with INFOStorageCorporation to distribute UltraBac data protection and recovery products to small and medium enterprises in the Philippines.
MSC (Multimedia Supercorridor) Malaysia status firm Vanilla Applications co-founder and director, marketing, Melina Hwang, said businesses in the Philippines would benefit from the enterprise class disaster recovery and protection solutions from US-based UltraBac Solutions.
"Even small businesses in the Philippines are getting affected by customer expectations of 24-hour access to their services," said Hwang. "As an example, we have come across small store owners, who have developed an online sales element to their business, resulting in computing systems and business data becoming a critical part of their business. Companies that had never touched a computer five years ago, now have business critical data which if lost could damage their livelihood."
"UltraBac is unique in offering technologies that offer enterprise class data protection and amazingly fast data recovery in the event of a system crash at a price point that meets the budgets of smaller Philippine companies," she said. "The simplicity of our products also suits those companies that do not have extensive in-house technical expertise."
"There is no doubt that there is a significant need for UltraBac's unique data protection and recovery products among Philippine companies," said INFOStorage's chief executive officer Butch Marking. "To educate users and introduce the product to this market, UltraBac needed an experienced and well regarded partner in the country."
"INFOStorage has been a leading supplier of data protection solutions in the Philippines for more than a decade," said Marking. "We understand this market, and we have experience in educating Philippine IT managers on how best to protect and recover business data."
"We are very excited to be launching UltraBac in the Philippines, particularly that we will be launching a first for this country, by offering Continuous Image Protection (CIP) technology which is embedded in both UltraBac Back-up and Disaster Recovery (UBDR) Gold and UltraBac Warp," he said. "CIP really does bring enterprise class Recovery Point and Recovery Time objectives within the reach of small and medium-sized businesses.
"UltraBac combines bare metal recovery capability with CIP," added Vanilla Applications' Hwang. "To our users, this means that every change to data is captured and protected, and in the event of all-out disaster, we can recover to a completely different server in a matter of minutes."
