(The Hosting News) – Arkeia Software, a leading provider of fast, easy-to-use, and affordable network backup solutions announced Arkeia Network Backup as the chosen data protection solution by Netregistry, Australia’s largest domain name registrar and one of Australia’s leading hosting providers. Arkeia Software has enabled Netregistry to grow its business at a rapid pace by providing fast and flexible backup and disaster recovery solutions to tape, disk and cloud.
50TB and Growing
Netregistry uses Arkeia to protect over 800 servers, including Hyper-V, Linux, Mac, Unix, VMware, Windows, and Xen platforms. “Since we selected Arkeia, we have expanded our backup set volume from 1TB to 50TB and we plan to grow even more,” said Adam Cassar, CTO at Netregistry. “Arkeia Network Backup’s reliability is superb. We depend on Arkeia to keep our customer’s data safe. Nothing could be more important.”
“Arkeia is committed to providing our MSP customers with the mechanisms to create a profitable hosting model by ensuring reliable and flexible data protection,” explained Bill Evans, CEO Arkeia Software. “Arkeia Network Backup is ideal for hosting companies because our backup servers, designed expressly for Linux, are faster than alternative solutions costing five-times as much. We allow our customers to simplify data protection because Arkeia protects all the major virtual environments and over 200 types of physical platforms. Data can be efficiently protected offsite either by backup-to-tape or by replication to cloud storage.”
Arkeia Provides Cloud Backup
Before implementing Arkeia in 1999, Netregistry backed up data through a combination of scripts and opensource applications. When they decided to migrate to a tape storage solution, Arkeia was selected for its extensive support of tape libraries. As Netregistry’s hosting infrastructure grew, the capabilities of Arkeia Network Backup allowed their data protection policies to evolve. Netregistry has employed several backup strategies including backup-to-tape, backup-to-disk, and, now, backup-to-cloud.
Netregistry’s state-of-the-art hosting infrastructure delivers disaster recovery and backup management solutions without the complexity and delay imposed by tape technology. With two large datacenters in the Sydney area, Netregistry replicates data daily from each datacenter to the other over a wide area network (WAN). Data recovery is never slowed due to tape transport by truck.
Arkeia Proves Easy-to-Use and Reliable
Netregistry cites Arkeia’s easy-to-use web based interface and speed as key components to cost-effectively managing hundreds of machines within a company that is adding new customers and more data daily. “Arkeia’s ease-of-use is very important ; when we’re working late at night on customer issues, it gives us the confidence to go in there and do what needs to be done,” said Cassar. “We don’t worry about unpredictable side-effects or un-intended consequences.”
Netregistry is using Arkeia Network Backup v9.0, with Progressive Deduplication™. Netregistry is currently testing Arkeia’s VMware vStorage Agent for use in their growing virtual environment.
A start-up in 1997, Netregistry now registers more domains than any other provider and is one of the most trusted web hosts for small businesses throughout Australia, helping hundreds of thousands of businesses nationwide. Netregistry is committed to providing the resources and infrastructure for tomorrow’s online entrepreneurs. Netregistry remains a privately owned Australian company, with over 100 full-time staff and is located in Sydney with local data centres as well as local customer service.
