CloudCover at virtualDCS launched with Seagate

Cloud computing and disaster recovery specialists, virtualDCS is improving the speed at which its partners can restore, move, and consolidate data, after forming a partnership with mass data storage solutions company, Seagate.

The new Seagate Lyve offering, known as CloudCover Shuttle at virtual DCS, offers a fast and secure method of physical data transfer, to avoid long transfer times that are dependent on internet bandwidth. The shuttle enables businesses to move their data quickly, securely, and simply from endpoints to the edge and to the landing destination of the data, be it private, public, or hybrid clouds.  

Kurt Kiefer, Chief Revenue Officer at virtualDCS said, “joining forces with Seagate Lyve solutions, CloudCover Shuttle offers organisations a level of security and encryption that exceeds anything else in the market including user-based permissions, tracking, and crypto-erase. This is particularly compelling for organisations operating in industries that have high levels of compliance and that can’t risk their data falling into the wrong hands, as well as anyone who understands the value and concept of time to data. Crucially, we’ve also created a simple pricing model, where customers pay for the time they need the shuttle, rather than having to buy their own physical device, which would require a substantial investment and take up more valuable time.”

Organisations that are seeding backup data, recovering data after a disaster, or carrying out hardware upgrades and Cloud migrations, can now access a physical data ‘shuttle’ service, without the need for capital expenditure and hardware purchases.

The shuttle offers a range of storage capacities and is delivered promptly, as well as securely encrypted and tracked while it is being transported. Once the shuttle is returned, it will then undergo a full crypto-erase.

The new offering is an extension of the virtualDCS CloudCover suite of services, which enables virtualDCS partners and their customers to back up and replicate business-critical data on their terms.

Steve Jones, Lyve Business Development Manager at Seagate added, “virtualDCS is a leader in its field and a specialist in Veeam-powered backup and DR services that are always exploring how it can maximise data innovation. They identified that many organisations faced a problem around data logistics and time to data after recovering from a disaster, which until now has been a big industry challenge. Our new collaboration addresses this problem by providing one of the fastest, most reliable, and secure data storage and transfer services giving a clear competitive advantage not only to virtualDCS, but also to their partners and customers.”
