Campbell, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2013

More details and Cloud Provider Program registration is available at .

Click to tweet: NAKIVO introduced Cloud Provider program with per-VM licensing for VM backup and replication –

Traditional per-socket licensing is less optimal for businesses who want to offer data protection services to their clients. This licensing model has high upfront costs, adds regular maintenance costs, and is not granular enough for Managed Services, Cloud, and Hosting Providers who support their customers on a per-VM basis.

The new Cloud Provider Program enables Managed Services, Cloud, and Hosting Providers to extend their services to BaaS, RaaS, DRaaS, and BCaaS, attract new clients, improve client retention, drive new revenues, and become more competitive with most advanced technology and the lowest TCO solution.

The upcoming Enterprise Cloud Provider Edition will also provide a multi-tenancy feature, enabling cloud providers to manage all tenants from a single cloud provider user interface, while keeping tenant data separate and providing an easy to use self-service tenant interface as well. Learn more about upcoming features at .

NAKIVO Backup & Replication Pro is now available as a monthly rental in packs of 10 VMs to qualified Cloud Provider Partners, enabling them to protect the virtualized infrastructure of their customers onsite or offsite. With this simple month to month rental model, partners can more affordably create their data protection cloud services.


With NAKIVO Backup & Replication I can manage data protection for our geographically distributed sites from a single Web interface without having the data to travel through the central server. I have not come across such a good centrally managed backup solution that is so easy to configure before,” said Graham Morse, Systems Administrator at Somerset Health Informatics Service.

“Because NAKIVO Backup & Replication can protect VMs at the customer site(s), offsite within our datacenter, and to public clouds, we are able to tailor protection services for onsite rapid VM recovery from local backup in case of a server failure, offsite within our datacenter in case of a customer onsite power outage, or with a public cloud in case of regional disaster, said Matjaz Antloga, IT Director at With NAKIVOs high reliability, performance, and affordability we have been able to expand our data protection services and produce new revenue while also improving customer satisfaction levels.

Solveforce Brings the Future of Computer Networks to Atlanta with Global MPLS Network Providers

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

Technological innovations influence many aspects of human life. Among the greatest technological innovations of today are computers. They have taken over the way people live and have been integrated into the daily activities people carry out in their everyday lives.

In computer networks, computers send data to each other over a communication medium between them. MLS has a mechanism that acts with other kinds of network protocols at the same layer. It has to map IP addresses to their corresponding labels. The transmission medium is divided into several label switched paths for the transmission.

Network communication faces different challenges and the Atlanta Global MLS network provider ( deals with most of them. The main challenges include network engineering, speeds and policies. The limitations of bandwidth may also pose serious problems to a network. The new technology is able to deal with these issues.

Most users of a network face the problem of downtime caused by failures of different components of a network. The MLS has its own mechanisms of dealing with such problems. Its self-healing properties reduce the worries of network administrators. It also reduces the error rates of transmitted information.

Most owners of businesses with computer networks are concerned about the scalability of their networks. They want a situation where they can add computers and other devices to the network without having to make significant changes. Atlanta Global MLS network provider ( is scalable, which is partly a reason for its popularity.

It works by creating virtual links between two computers sending data to each other. This increases the effective bandwidth because communication takes place on a proprietary network. This also makes the technology the ideal choice for creation of VPNs, which have become very popular on the market today.

In the standard network model, the data link layer implements several protocols that govern how computers access the shared medium. It has the option of several protocols but each network uses only one. Atlanta Global MPLS network provider ( helps engineers develop networks capable of implementing more than one protocol at this layer.

There are no restrictions imposed on the kinds of transmissions implemented at the network layers. The network engineers are now more concerned with building better networks capable of handling the needs of an organization. The business is therefore able to enjoy better performance and efficiency levels.

When disasters strike, they may paralyze the operations of business because of loss of data. To avoid this, most proprietors back up their data on remote servers. The onset of cloud computing makes the backup process faster and easier. Computers need high speed access to the cloud servers to store and access the required information.

Multiprotocol layer switching is fast replacing the traditional kind of network communication through frame relay and asynchronous transfer mode. Most business investors are investing in this technology and the others are becoming outdated. Enhancing business efficiency is the goal for most investors and MLS is the best option for achieving this goal.

London, UK (PRWEB) June 30, 2010

ElasticHosts, the international cloud provider, today announced the launch of the ElasticStack cloud platform (, a powerful platform that enables hosting providers and data centres to offer own-brand cloud servers to their customers swiftly.

Commenting on the launch of ElasticStack, Richard Davies, CEO at ElasticHosts, said, “As the use of cloud-based services continues to gain momentum, growing numbers of hosting providers are looking to offer own-brand cloud servers to their customers. Hosting providers and data centre businesses that sense customer demand for cloud can now simply license and deploy our proven technology. This dramatically improves the speed with which they can offer cutting-edge cloud server products to their customers, which is crucial in this fast-expanding market where time to launch is pivotal to success.”

Davies continues, “As we offer a complete turn-key solution, hosting providers and data centre businesses can focus on selling cloud servers to their customers under their own brands; we license our complete software solution and optionally also provide fully managed technical operations.

Internet Service Providers in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2012

The move toward ubiquitous internet access and the exponential growth of internet traffic has benefited the Internet Service Providers industry in the past five years. Regulatory overhaul in 2012 will necessitate government-subsidized network expansion and increase the number of US broadband connections, driving revenue growth, says IBISWorld industry analyst Kevin Boyland. From 2007 to 2012, IBISWorld estimates industry revenue will grow at a 3.4% annualized rate to $ 79.3 billion, with a push toward broadband expansion in rural markets boosting industry revenue 7.6% in 2012.

Business customers have emerged as the most lucrative growth market in the Internet Service Providers industry. Businesses yield high profit margins for ISPs, with dedicated internet access services contributing about a quarter of all industry revenue, adds Boyland. The increasing usage of cloud computing (which involves accessing data and software through the internet) is boosting demand for high-speed access services. Additionally, ISPs are increasing their array of value-added services, acquiring cloud and infrastructure consulting firms to profit further from the business market. As demand for value-added business services continues to increase, industry revenue is forecast to grow over the next five years.

The Internet Service Providers industry has a moderate level of market share concentration and is characterized by a dominant group of larger players and numerous small players. Concentration increased over the past five years because of merger and acquisition activity. Major player Century Link’s acquisition of Qwest Communications more than doubled its market share in 2011. In an effort to increase subscriber numbers and to expand business service offerings, major firms like AT&T and Comcast have acquired rural ISPs and cloud infrastructure providers. Over the next five years, industry consolidation will continue as ISPs increase subscriber bases and network scope. As the market converges, distinct technological systems are evolving toward a set of data services that are bundled together and marketed as one product. Major operators now offer packages that bundle TV, voice, internet and mobile services together. Smaller ISPs that are unable to compete on price with larger operators’ economies of scope will find niche markets, such as small businesses, or leave the industry.

Consumer sentiment about the internet as a necessity rather than a luxury will pressure industry operators in the future; service prices and network management practices will fall under increasing scrutiny. As internet traffic continues to increase, ISPs will exercise more control over their networks and will likely restructure their pricing to a usage-based model despite opposition from consumers. Issues like net neutrality (i.e. treating all internet traffic the same) may lead the FCC to assert more regulatory authority over the industry, pressuring profitability.

IT Security Firm, GTB Technologies, Releases the First Multi-Tenant, Context & Content Aware Data Loss Prevention Solution for MSSPs, ISPs & Cloud Host Providers

Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

GTB Technologies, a Visionary in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Aware Data Loss Prevention, today announced the release of a Multi-Tenant Enterprise DLP Solution targeted at Managed Service Providers looking to offer Enterprise Level IT Security Services.

Now MSSPs, ISPs & Cloud Host Providers can themselves raise the bar and add a truly unique data protection offering, differentiating themselves from their competition.

With GTB’s Inspector Cloud Multi-Tenant, MSSPs will not only cut their customers costs but they can now have the added differentiation of an Enterprise Data Loss Prevention Solution. Offering their customers the ability to take control of their in house and cloud application data, at a fraction of the cost of any other DLP system.

Precision Coupled with Real-Time Detection Are the 2 Key Differentiators

With continued high profile hacks and intellectual property theft by malware, organizations large & small need the correct IT security tools in place. “Our research has shown that the many fruitless attempts at detecting data by imprecise methods, such as pattern detection, regular expressions, Meta Data Tags, etc is in large part the reason for DLP project failures. The ‘tuning’ required is never ending, therefore many, at best, end up with a poor monitoring system detecting thousands of unmanageable events” says Wendy Cohen, GTB Technologies COO. “Even the addition of data classification tools, touted by some as the answer to the industry known false positive problem; doesn’t create a true, accurate Context & Content Aware Data Loss Prevention Solution”, said Cohen.

Prevent Data Residency Law Mistakes

GTB DLP provides the ability to create, manage & enforce policies based on content &/ context for when, where, how and by whom. Thus controlling when data can or can’t be moved, to or from the network &/ devices.

GTB’s DLP Cloud Advantages:

Fingerprint your data – no need for inaccurate, imprecise pattern matching, regular expressions, data dictionaries, Meta-data tagging etc!
Support Multi-Terra bytes of data & hundreds of millions of Database record without “choking”
Intellectual Property Protection (Precise Partial File Match)
Easy to implement & use, without disruption or complexity
Easy to scale
Web, Email & Mobile Security
Unified Data Centric Policy Approach
Efficient Data Classification
Event Management / Workflow
Data Governance
Data Level Visibility
Real-time Enforcement & Reporting
Risk & Forensic Analysis
