This collaboration plays to the two parties' full strengths in data backup and disaster recovery service.

As enterprises proceed to be defined by software, data protection for current and transitioning environments stand to be the next challenge for businesses. This strategic cooperation between the two companies aims to drive the adoption of and demonstrate the unique benefits of disaster recovery cloud services for key business applications, along with guaranteed business continuity.
