ReadyRECOVER backup appliance with ReadyDATA and ShadowProtect integration enables time and space-efficient full backups every 15 minutes

AUCKLAND, New Zealand — August 6, 2014 NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to businesses, consumers and service providers, today announced ReadyRECOVER™ - a new addition to its innovative ReadyDATA™ unified storage (NAS/SAN) platform. ReadyRECOVER is a backup appliance built to run exclusively with the ReadyDATA family of storage appliances.


With ReadyRECOVER, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are able to create full backups of servers, desktops and laptops every 15 minutes that can be independently used to quickly and reliably restore files, folders, databases or systems to any platform, physical or virtual. For the first time, businesses can confidently back up their data forever, without ever needing inefficient and time-consuming periodic full system backups.


NETGEAR is the first technology provider to enable incremental backups as full restore points delivering extremely simple recovery point management. ReadyRECOVER integration of the ReadyDATA storage appliance with award-winning ShadowProtect® backup and disaster recovery software from StorageCraft® Technology Corporation results in each incremental snapshot functioning as a full recovery point, but consuming a minimal amount of storage space. In addition, each snapshot captures the entire system, the Microsoft Windows® OS, and all settings and data for a rapid full system recovery.


“What we’re seeing from SMBs here in Australia and New Zealand is a growing need for cost-effective backup appliances that can alleviate businesses of the burden of assembling their own solution, freeing up more of the time to work on what matters to them – running their businesses,” said Brad Little, Managing Director, NETGEAR Australia and New Zealand. “In addition to being cost-effective these solutions also need to be easy to implement and manage, ReadyRECOVER is a complete hardware and software solution that combines the best enterprise-class features of ReadyDATA and StorageCraft’s ShadowProtect software with a level of simplicity that will suit the needs of local SMBs,” Little added.


ReadyRECOVER creates synthetic full backups in a VHDX format, ready to quickly recover into a virtual or physical machine. For both server-to-NAS backup and PC-to-NAS backup, ReadyRECOVER backups require no file conversion, and can independently be used to quickly and reliably restore files, folders, databases or Windows-based systems to any platform.


“NETGEAR is a dominant brand in the SMB space, and it is exciting to see the integration between the two products,” said Greg Wyman, Vice President Asia Pacific at StorageCraft. “The ReadyDATA backup appliance delivers a tight integration with StorageCraft ShadowProtect that enables NETGEAR to deliver a turnkey appliance for fast recovery when needed.”


ReadyRECOVER provides companies with enterprise-class backup at an affordable price, complete with:
  • Protection for Windows servers, Virtual Machines (e.g., Citrix, Microsoft Hyper-V®, VMware, etc.), and PCs, both onsite and offsite
    • Simple setup and management
    • No incremental restores
    • Hardware-independent restoration to any hardware or virtualisation platform
    • Zero-delay, WAN-optimised replication
    • Hardware compression and per-job deduplication for storage efficiency without performance overhead
    • An industry-leading five-year warranty for ReadyDATA, the hardware platform for ReadyRECOVER

    “My clients are small businesses, who struggle to replicate backup data to an offsite location because of the limited bandwidth in their offices,” said Mark Dutton, the owner of Datamerge, a provider of customer-focused Information Technology and telecommunications solutions. “The WAN-optimised replication enabled by NETGEAR ReadyRECOVER addresses this problem and makes their backup and recovery processes painless and automatic. I recommend ReadyRECOVER as an integrated solution that is easy to install and maintain.”
