RxStrategies Deploys TwinStrata CloudArray Cloud-Integrated Storage to Serve Health Care Partners
Cloud storage strategy supports company's business continuity requirements

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amazon AWS re: Invent Conference, Booth #429 -- TwinStrata, Inc., an innovator in cloud-integrated storage solutions,  today announced that RxStrategies Inc., a Florida-based consultant to health care providers, has deployed TwinStrata CloudArray®, a flexible and powerful cloud-integrated storage solution, as the backbone of its new cloud-based business continuity strategy.

As part of its virtualization strategy, RxStrategies began to look for more time-, cost- and resource-efficient disaster recovery solutions. With a primary focus on serving its partners, RxStrategies wanted to ensure that its partners would always be able to access necessary data – even if the company's primary site went down.

Since RxStrategies is based in Florida, the company requires a comprehensive, effective and responsive disaster recovery strategy to safeguard its business and its partners in the event of hurricane or other disaster. The company's progressive approach to business continuity includes cloud-based virtual machines and required a solution that ensured RxStrategies' partners could retain access to their data through the cloud-hosted virtual machines.

The flexibility of CloudArray enables users to treat the cloud as though it were a local storage area network, making it easy and intuitive for users to access data from the cloud, in this case, Amazon S3. Meanwhile, CloudArray's ability to work with more than 20 cloud storage providers also means that RxStrategies has an additional safeguard available if it ever chooses to. The company's future strategy includes backing up to more than one cloud storage provider, insulating it from any cloud outages and providing ensured availability to its partners.

In addition, because CloudArray can operate in a cloud compute environment such as Amazon EC2, RxStrategies has effectively future-proofed their storage strategy – a virtual CloudArray appliance suits today's needs, and the in-cloud CloudArray is available when they decide to make the move.

Quotes

Brian Witlarge, System Administrator, RxStrategies:

  • "We were looking for an appliance that could help us put data in the cloud in case of a failure, but didn't require us to have to build APIs. TwinStrata had a virtual SAN infrastructure and a cloud back-end, which was appealing. The solution was as simple as using an iPod – it did exactly what it was supposed to do, and it did so simply and elegantly."

Rick Debay, RxStrategies:

  • "Having a reliable and responsive disaster recovery strategy is a critical part of serving our partners. As hurricane damage can result in severe power outages and extensive damage to a large area, our business continuity plan needs to include the ability to recover to a distant site, yet still access all our data. TwinStrata enables us to do exactly that."

Nicos Vekiarides, CEO, TwinStrata:

  • "There's no shortage of criteria that businesses use when evaluating cloud strategies and vendors, but the basic tenets of 'make it fast, safe and easy' apply across the board. RxStrategies found that TwinStrata exceeded those criteria and also offered an enhanced transparency, efficiency and flexibility. We're pleased RxStrategies chose TwinStrata to overcome the challenge of managing their virtual cloud infrastructure."
