Coretelligent Unveils CoreBDR Backup Solution

By - Source: CoreBDR

Coretelligent, an online private cloud service provider for small and mid-sized businesses, announced a new backup and disaster recovery solution called CoreBDR.

CoreBDR is available both for clients using cloud hosting as well as those with their own on premises infrastructure. The product is essentially a coupling of two existing backup solutions, EMC Data Domain and Veeam Backup & Replication. The EMC Data Domain part handles regular backup data storage, and the Veeam part handles backup and recovery processing. The result is a solution the company claimed is faster, more secure, and more scalable than other solutions.

The primary selling point of CoreBDR is that while typical backup solutions only backup flat flies to a single location, CoreBDR backs up virtual machines and application-specific data, as well as flat files, to its distributed cloud data centers. In the case of a virtual machine becoming corrupted, a traditional backup and recovery solution would require spinning up and configuring a new virtual machine before the flat files could be restored, followed by transfer from a single backup location. However, CoreBDR allows for the virtual machine itself to be restored, along with the data and applications inside of it. The result is disaster recovery in a much shorter time frame.

"CoreBDR is a state of the art data protection solution that quickly recovers data and restores server infrastructure integrity in minutes, instead of hours required by other solutions. In many cases, employees aren't even aware that an outage occurred or that a failover took place," said Kevin Routhier, Coretelligent founder and CEO.

The backup process is agentless, ensuring that there is no additional overhead or configuration required on the servers. Backup itself is fully secure thanks to Veeam encryption, which keeps backup secure both in-flight and at rest, using end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption. According to the company, this has no negative impact on WAN acceleration or compression. For further security, data in Coretelligent's CoreCloud network transfers only within the company's private CoreCloud, with no access to the CoreBDR outside of the backup and recovery infrastructure.

Companies backing up their own on-site infrastructure do so via encrypted HTTPS connection. Backups are kept as small as possible using compression and deduplication.
