Helping Companies Get the Cloud Cover: CloudEndure


In today’s era of information technology and globalization, data is everything. Some experts have even gone so far as to say that data, not gold, silver, oil or minerals, will become the most expensive commodity in the world. All the major technology corporations that deal with several terabytes of data have state-of-the-art security measures. The world runs on the internet today and the secure exchange of information is paramount. A loss of sensitive data is not only financially damaging, but it also ruins the reputation of the corporation, thereby affecting business. Loss of information may be the result of a malicious activity or natural causes and technical faults. In such circumstances, redundancy ensures continuity of business.

CloudEndure is a company that provides reliable business continuity solutions that prevent data loss and downtime due to human errors, network failures, external threats, or any other disruptions. Customers rely on CloudEndure to ensure business as usual, always. Their technology delivers on this promise with continuous block-level replication and application stack orchestration at the touch of a button, within minutes, and with the latest data.

Q. What the Company Does

CloudEndure’s multi-tier IT Resilience Suite for the Hybrid Cloud offers Disaster Recovery, Continuous Backup, and Live Migration of any application from any physical, virtual, or cloud-based source to any target infrastructure, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, VMware, OpenStack, and Oracle Cloud. As such, CloudEndure is uniquely qualified to support large-scale, heterogeneous environments with diverse applications and infrastructure.

In case of a disaster or catastrophe, rapid recovery is the most important priority. But what is more important is the ability of the company to continue their services to their clients. Because large corporations like Amazon, Google and Microsoft have thousands of clients from various sectors all over the world, any disaster that befalls the cloud infrastructure could severely compromise the businesses of all the clients.

But with CloudEndure Disaster Recovery technology, business continuity and IT resilience are a click away. The one-touch disaster recovery solution utilizes block-level continuous replication, application stack orchestration, and automated machine conversion to ensure near-zero RPOs and RTOs for all applications, while frequently reducing traditional disaster recovery expenses by 80% or more. CloudEndure offers both Tier 1 and Tier 2 Disaster Recovery. Each tier provides a different level of functionality — such as RPOs and RTOs — at a different price, thereby allowing you to choose the most cost-effective solution for all your workloads based on their criticality level. As part of the IT Resilience Suite, CloudEndure also offers Continuous Backup for workloads that do not require disaster recovery.

Here Are Some of The Features of CloudEndure’s Disaster Recovery Suite:

  • Where traditional DR solutions require duplicate compute and storage infrastructure in your target site, CloudEndure leverages the cloud to keep your data in sync using lightweight compute and storage. This way you only pay for your fully provisioned workload in an actual disaster, reducing TCO by an average of 80%.
  • CloudEndure operates in the background, without requiring a reboot or impacting your system in any noticeable way. The Continuous Data Protection (CDP) engine works in memory, does not use snapshots, and does not write any data to disk, which means near-zero impact on performance.
  • Unlike backup and snapshot-based solutions, which can only update target locations at distinct, infrequent intervals, CloudEndure uses Continuous Data Protection (CDP), enabling real-time updates, near-zero RPO, and the elimination of data loss. Moreover, whereas backup solutions only provide data recovery, CloudEndure launches a recovery machine in your target, eliminating the need to retrieve data manually and enabling near-zero RTO.
  • CloudEndure follows the highest security standards and is ISO 27001 compliant. The company provides in-transit data encryption using AES 256-bit and support at-rest data encryption in your target site. Replication traffic is transmitted directly from your source machines to your target site and can be restricted to your private networks for better speed and control.

Highlighting Features of CloudEndure’s Migration Services:

Since cloud-based services have become the norm, it is very convenient for companies to shift all of their operational data to the cloud. The migration to the cloud is one of the most sought-after services in CloudEndure’s portfolio.

  • Mass Migrations

Designed for large-scale migrations, CloudEndure enables the replication of data from thousands of machines simultaneously without any performance impact. After initial replication, you can spin up all your machines or designated machine groups in parallel as well as execute any post-migration scripts at scale as necessary. Moreover, you can manage the entire migration lifecycle and verify your readiness for cutover directly from the CloudEndure Console.

  • Any to Any

Migrate all your physical, virtual, hybrid, and cloud-based workloads with one automated solution. CloudEndure provides equally efficient replication solutions for any source infrastructure and any target infrastructure, including physical or collocated data centers, VMware, and all major clouds, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and OpenStack. If needed, it is just as easy to use CloudEndure to migrate back from the cloud to on-premise or other cloud targets.
