Storage vendor ClearSky Data and cloud provider Faction are partnering to provide cloud-based disaster recovery for VMware environments.
ClearSky Data, based in Boston, provides on-demand primary storage that includes backup and disaster recovery (DR), while Faction, based in Denver, contributes its multi-cloud platform-as-a-service offering. That platform is built on VMware and other technology suppliers, such as Dell EMC and NetApp. The on-demand DR capability lets customers eliminate secondary data centers and related expenses, according to ClearSky Data. The cloud DR approach lets customers shrink storage costs by more than 25%, the company said.
