  • On-storage containerization reduces unnecessary hardware investment and space
  • Highly performant 15 GB/s throughput rates bring enterprises back online faster
  • Open protocols and APIs power streamlined enterprise storage, backup, and recovery

LOS ANGELES and BROOMFIELD, Colo., Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OpenDrives, the global provider of enterprise-scale, software-powered storage solutions, and Zmanda, a BETSOL company that provides industry-leading open source backup and recovery software, announced a partnership today. They are set to introduce a container-native enterprise backup and recovery (EBR) solution that is highly performant, scalable, and cost-effective.

The joint solution integrates OpenDrives’ enterprise storage platform with Zmanda’s Enterprise EBR software to provide on-storage containerization that brings EBR software closer to the backed-up and archived data. This functionality powers highly performant throughput rates of 15 GB/s to significantly cut recovery time in the event of a system failure, outage, or ransomware attack while also eliminating the need for additional hardware investment.

“Container-native EBR provides a cost-effective way to run this critical workflow at scale,” said Sean Lee, Chief Strategy and Operations Officer at OpenDrives. “For enterprise organizations, the sheer volume of data moving within backup and restore procedures demands high-performance – partnering with Zmanda allows us to accelerate both throughput speeds and deployment.”

By merging OpenDrives’ software-led, open and agnostic approach to data storage with Zmanda’s enterprise software, this all-in-one solution creates efficiencies in setup, deployment, and maintenance. It also features net-new capabilities, such as intelligent scheduling for automated backup support, to reduce operational overhead and inadvertent human error.
