Virtiant Launches DRaaS In The Cloud

Virtiant is rolling out Recovery Site In the Cloud, its all-in-one platform that allows small and midsize companies to deploy and run their own disaster recovery sites in the cloud—without the need for additional hardware, software, purpose-built backup appliances or a secondary site.

The Fremont, Calif.-based company, founded in 2017, built the ground-up, fully managed Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) completely in-house rather than patchworking together different point solutions, according to Chief Marketing Officer Imran Said.

“One of our taglines is we actually make this ridiculously easy for the end customer and partner to set up, manage and maintain a disaster recovery site,” Said said. “There’s no hardware required, no additional software required, but you’re not compromising anything at the same time as well.”

Virtiant’s premise is that the most ideal disaster recovery site is one that closely resembles a company’s production environment and replicates its mission-critical virtual machines.

“We aren’t just backing up data in an app,” Said said. “We’re mirroring your production environment in the cloud. It allows you to have the same functionality that you would at home or at your local business, but you’re actually running your production from the cloud during disruptive events that you’re dealing with.”

Virtiant is targeting SMBs with 100 to 1,000 employees as end customers of its DRaaS. It’s 100 percent channel-focused and is looking to bring on reseller partners and service providers working in that space.

Disaster recovery sites typically are expensive and complex for SMBs because they require a second data center facility and more employees to look after it in addition to duplication of the hardware and software that’s in their current environment.

“But by putting it in the cloud, it would take a lot of those costs, those complexities away,” Said said. “They don’t need to have the specific data recovery business expertise on-site because we take care of all that.”
