GAITHERSBURG, MD – October 28, 2013 – Recovery Point, a leading national provider of integrated disaster recovery and business continuity solutions to commercial organizations across all industries, as well as to federal, state and local government agencies, announces Mainframe Cloud Recovery as a Service, via strategic partnership with Luminex Software, Inc.
Recovery Point has added a solution for IBM mainframes to its Cloud-based backup and recovery portfolio. Recovery Point combines industry-leading virtual tape technology from Luminex, with a powerful network and secure hosting infrastructure to make the solution affordable for a wide range of mainframe clients.
The Recovery as a Service (RaaS) solution eliminates physical tape-based restores as the primary method of application recovery, allowing transmission of mainframe data over the network without the need for channel extension, resulting in greatly improved RPOs and RTOs, versus physical tape based backup and recovery.
“The days of trucking hundreds of mainframe backup tapes to a disaster recovery site are over.” says Recovery Point President Marc Langer. “High-performance Cloud storage and recovery services for the mainframe are now available on a simplified and competitive basis via the Luminex technology, and we are already working with Luminex to implement this solution for a number of our clients.” continued Marc.
"Luminex's partnership with Recovery Point represents a win for mainframe customers of every size and budget looking to improve their disaster recovery plan," says Arthur Tolsma, CEO at Luminex. “Luminex's industry-leading Channel Gateway solutions, coupled with Recovery Point's experience and focus on Recovery as a Service, ensures that each customer gains the maximum benefits of reduced RPO and RTO with increased reliability."
