JetStream DR Gives MSPs, CSPs Continuous Data Protection Tools
…his company and its customers, he added. “The cloud adoption strategy with JetStream will be interesting to watch. As we see customers really continue to have choice of platform and choice of provider, I can see JetStream really allowing clients many options.”
Phil Goodwin, an IT analyst with IDC, said JetStream DR is innovative enough that it starts to blur the lines between backup and recovery and disaster recovery and recovery. “What’s different about this is that they apply a continuous data replication methodology,” he said.
“These guys are offering to get the RPO down to a measurement in seconds,” said Goodwin. “I think it’s a big deal as organizations try to lose less and less data. Data loss is very expensive for organizations in terms of time, in terms of customer loyalty and in terms of operations. This is really helping companies to get to a point where you can have near-zero data loss.”
JetStream is among the first vendors to introduce such capabilities, according to Goodwin.
“This is good for the channel to sell to customers because it can help differentiate them,” he said. “It tees up a very rapid disaster recovery scenario in the event of a disaster.”
