OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2015) -  Cosentry, the leading provider of IT solutions in the Midwest, today announced a further strategic partnership with Geminare, the #1 ranked leader in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) enablement. Through this enhanced partnership, Cosentry expands its product portfolio with the addition of Geminare DRaaS. Termed Cosentry DRaaS integrated with Google Cloud Platform, this suite of services is delivered through a collaboration with Google Cloud Platform (NASDAQ: GOOG) and enables Cloud Recovery and Cloud Archive services to be delivered to Cosentry's customers.

Leveraging Geminare DRaaS integrated with Google Cloud Platform solutions, Cosentry brings its white-glove, managed services approach to disaster recovery deployments while meeting the full range of Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). In addition, the strategic partnership enables the following:

  • Competitive pricing for the underlying storage and compute costs required in providing a full disaster recovery (DR) infrastructure.
  • Flexibility in the recovery site so that customers may grow their DR solutions easily over time.
  • Efficient and effortless management of a full-service delivery of DRaaS offerings.

Craig Hurley, VP Product Management at Cosentry, commented, "Google Cloud Platform's flexibility and ease-of-use are essential in helping us deploy our DRaaS solutions. By combining our world-class managed services with Geminare's DRaaS Platform and suite of offerings, we are also able to offer reliable, secure, and cost-effective DR solutions delivered from the public cloud."

Allen Klumpp, Partner & VP of Security and Infrastructure at Cilio Technologies, recently implemented the Cosentry Cloud Recovery integrated with Google Cloud Platform service to protect their on-line SaaS offering and ensure business continuity for end customers. Klumpp elaborated, "As a pioneer in using cloud-based services in the manufacturing industry, we pride ourselves on our innovation and customer service. A natural extension of this philosophy was to incorporate a state-of-the-art DRaaS offering that provides our customers with one of the industry's best Service Level Agreements (SLAs). DRaaS integrated with Google Cloud Platform gives us confidence that these SLAs will be met in support of our customers' services."

Reflecting on the Google collaboration and Cosentry's initiative amongst the Service Provider community, Geminare's CEO, Joshua Geist, stated, "While this announcement benefits our Service Provider community globally, Cosentry in particular is at the forefront having already successfully implemented customer instances with Geminare DRaaS and Google Cloud Platform. We expect to see significant uptake within Cosentry's customer base in the near future."
