Geminare Named "Cool Vendor" by Gartner, Inc.

Geminare Earns Prestigious Industry Designation for Its CORE Platform and RaaS Cloud Offerings

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Geminare, the #1 ranked global leader in RaaS Product enablement, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has named it a "Cool Vendor" in its Cool Vendors in Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery Management, 2014 report. Gartner, Inc., the leading global IT consulting firm, further recommends that customers "should strongly consider one or more Geminare partner providers" when contemplating Recovery as a Service (RaaS) deployments.

The annual report, based solely on nominations by Gartner analysts, highlights how "Geminare equips its service provider partners with one of the market's most complete management platforms for setting up, administering and managing recovery service instances."

The report affirms, "Geminare is a cloud management platform (CMP) vendor whose Cloud OnRamp Enablement (CORE) software provides a robust management infrastructure for the delivery of cloud-based RaaS via provider partners. Cloud CORE, a patented technology that is one of the earliest CMP offerings, now includes 18 management capabilities in two products: Cloud Recovery and Virtual Server Rapid Recovery."

Since its initial market release in 2009, Geminare has continued to evolve its CORE platform, maintaining its widely acknowledged RaaS industry leadership position. Its next release, CORE Platform 3.0, scheduled for Q3 2014, adopts a complete rewrite of CORE's underlying architecture and interface, as well as additional and highly requested RaaS capabilities. This 3rd generation release, named, Cloud CORE C3, will accommodate Any Cloud, Any Customer, Any Configuration by leveraging the platform's comprehensive, award winning, and field-tested capabilities. Cloud CORE C3 will further enhance its integration with all the leading platform architectures including OpenStack, IBM's SmartCloud, HP's Cloud, NTT's Enterprise Cloud, Azure, Amazon, Google, and VMware's vCloud.

John Morency, co-author of the Gartner report, commented, "As one of the first vendors to adopt and build out RaaS capabilities, I am pleased to see Geminare remaining in the spotlight within the RaaS ecosystem. Geminare's focus on enabling channel partners to successfully offer RaaS has significantly shaped the delivery experience for disaster recovery within the Cloud over the past eight years. We're very pleased to recognize these contributions in our 2014 Cool Vendor report."

Geminare's CEO, Joshua Geist, states, "Customers and service providers are now ready to move beyond testing and development within cloud infrastructure platforms, and to fully leverage the benefits of RaaS. To do this successfully, however, they require flexibility, visibility, and most importantly battle-tested tools -- all of which we deliver through CORE. We have the most mature RaaS Platform in the market: one that has operated in virtually every cloud and across every conceivable cloud deployment configuration. I'm confident that the capabilities inherent in Cloud CORE C3 will pave the way for wide-scale, rapid deployment of RaaS for our Partners' customers worldwide."

Recently announced Geminare partnerships, such as that with HP, are already showing substantial signs of success and are a strong indication that the channel ecosystem is ready for large-scale adoption and deployment of RaaS. Partnerships like these allow HP's global partner ecosystem to launch RaaS offerings through their investment in the HP cloud and HP technologies. Coupled with the recent announcement that another Geminare partner, NTT Communications, achieved the Highest Product Rating Score for its Cloud Recovery product offering in the Gartner report, titled, "2013 Critical Capabilities for Recovery as a Service," evidence points to Geminare being positioned as the lead provider of RaaS enablement for the Channel.
