InMage Takes Data Protection & Migration to the Cloud & Beyond

New Scout 7.1 Software breaks new ground in the public, hosted and private cloud

InMage on Monday announced the release of Scout 7.1, enabling customers to leverage the public, hosted and private cloud as a target for backup and/or disaster recovery (DR). This next generation solution for hybrid cloud backup, recovery and migration is available in three form factors -- software, SaaS and the InMage 4000 Series appliance.

"We've always been ahead of the pack with our award winning technology, but with the addition of public and private cloud support for backup and DR, we're now truly in a class of one," said Kumar Malavalli, CEO, InMage Systems.

Key Updates in Scout 7.1:

  • Industry First & Only Public, Hosted & Private Cloud Support for Backup & DR
    Scout 7.1 empowers customers to leverage the public or private cloud for backup and/or DR. Instead of chaining customers to a proprietary service, InMage customers will enjoy the freedom of leveraging the public or private cloud of their choice!
  • Faster Recovery Time Objective (RTO) to join current best of breed recovery point objective (RPO)
    InMage already boasts the best RPO/RTO in the market powering key service providers, but with Scout 7.1, pulls even farther ahead of the competition. Recovery RTO and DR-Drill operations have been optimized and significantly improved, especially so for larger environments. Pre-Rollback operation time has been reduced, and VMs are now simultaneously powered on for a recovery or DR-Drill. Parallel recoveries or DR drills of disks are now also possible across VMs allowing for substantially improved RTO.

According to Josh Kulberg, VP of Information Technology for The Learning Experience, InMage was the ideal solution for their needs. "We needed a disaster recovery plan for our business critical systems like Exchange, SQL, file servers, web servers, and customer data. A single InMage 4101 appliance allowed us to seamlessly replicate our systems in South Florida to a remote site in New Jersey, rather than using the multiple products required by other vendors or implementations. I'm relieved to know that our physical and virtual servers are protected by a continuous backup, near zero RPO solution!"
