San Jose, CA (PressExposure) May 09, 2013 -- Quorum, the leading provider of one-click backup, recovery and continuity for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced that its Quorum Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery solution was named a finalist for Network Products Guide's 2013 Best Products Awards in the "Best IT Products and Services for Small Business, SOHO and Consumers" and "Best Storage Solutions" categories. The industry recognition is the second in as many months for the Quorum Hybrid Cloud solution (see "Quorum Named SIIA Software CODiE Award Finalist for 'Best Cloud Storage & Back Up Solution'"), which is the only solution in the industry that delivers assured, one-click recovery in minutes.
Simple, easy to use and cost effective, the Quorum Hybrid Cloud solution revolutionizes disaster recovery by delivering instant recovery of data, applications and systems with one click. This capability is especially important to small to mid-sized businesses, for whom hours or days of downtime can be disastrous. The solution's on-demand and automatic testing, glaringly absent from traditional tape and disk backup solutions, adds to the solution's value.
The Quorum Hybrid Cloud solution also goes beyond traditional storage, which holds only the "bits." Rather, it maintains up-to-date, ready-to-run virtual machine clones of a company's critical systems that can run locally or in the cloud, transparently taking over for failed servers within minutes. The Quorum Hybrid Cloud solution's deduplication is global "at the source," sending a single copy of only the actual changes to any of a company's files, so storage and bandwidth use is minimized. This means update intervals can be set as low as 15 minutes and deep archives can be kept without impacting performance or using massive amounts of storage.
An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, Network Products Guide's annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.
"We're honored to be named a finalist in Network Products Guide's Best Products Awards program," said Larry Lang, CEO, Quorum. "This recognition further validates our position in the industry as an innovator dedicated to ensuring instant recovery of data, applications and systems so that revenue, customers and reputation are safeguarded."
