Intronis Bolsters Virtualization Options

With hardware and virtualization such a hot topic in the 21st century, it's easy to see why many IT firms are jumping on the virtualization bandwagon. As such, there has been a sudden influx of virtualization options saturating the market. All of this growth and expansion hasn't stopped the industry mainstays from developing new technologies, however. With a software update released in Spring of 2014, Intronis, effectively raised the standard for data virtualization moving forward.

Included in the update was increased support for virtualized environments, including that of current VMware and Hyper-V editions. This, in addition to a number of other coding modifications and revisions, bolstered support for all of the enterprises that rely on Intronis for system virtualization and hybridization services.

Rick Faulk, Intronis' CEO, spoke about the need for increased data protection and security throughout the industry. He was quoted as saying: “Business IT environments are becoming increasingly more complex and data-driven, putting greater pressure and responsibility on the channel partner to protect, secure and recover the entire business, not just the data.

Faulk continued on, describing the new offering as "the first in a series of new product introductions coming over the next several months that addresses these challenges head on, and provides our channel partners with an all-in-one data protection platform that will help deliver faster data recovery and maximize business availability.”

Nearly a year later, we can see that Faulk and his team with Intronis has absolutely delivered on their promise. The company continues to rollout new updates, upgrades and even new software on a consistently basis, thereby expanding their presence in the IT industry even further.

David Alger, chief technology officer with Mobus Works, one of Intronis' key partners, spoke enthusiastically about Intronis' system updates, including the one which was released in mid- 2014. He was quoted as saying: “By adding support for Hyper-V, VMWare 5.5, and physical imaging, Intronis is fulfilling our desire to leverage a single vendor and platform for all of our customers’ backup and recovery needs. We can now easily restore a virtualized image so that our customers can get back up and running more quickly in the event of an outage or data loss.”

The biggest problem still remaining revolves around business continuity and disaster recovery planning (BCDR), which some small and medium-sized businesses are still shying away from. With the BCDR niche forecasted to exceed $40 billion by the end of this year, there is definitely room for a company like Intronis to capitalize.
