Wanclouds, a leading multi-cloud SaaS and managed service provider, today expanded the availability of its Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution across all Virtual Machines (VMs). By expanding beyond Kubernetes and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) resources, Wanclouds now offers all-inclusive backup and recovery for Linux and Windows-based virtual servers and user data. With the new capabilities, Wanclouds provides comprehensive multi-cloud backup and restore solutions across regions and clouds.
The Wanclouds DRaaS agent works within KVM, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V environments to provide live snapshot backups without disrupting the production environment. Developers don’t have to put environments into rescue mode or stop services; the agent simply works behind the scenes to take a hard snapshot. The snapshot captures a point-in-time copy of the VM, which is a much quicker process than a full backup. Moreover, the user has the flexibility to take a backup of the data without the full image of the VM and restore it on-demand across regions. All backups are performed securely and stored in an encrypted format in the customer’s object store.
“Regulations such as GDPR, PCI, and HIPAA are making it increasingly important for organizations to back up data that is vulnerable to cyber threats, hardware failures, or human error,” said Faiz Khan, CEO of Wanclouds. “Unfortunately, small and midsize enterprises looking to stay compliant have been historically underserved by legacy disaster recovery options that are cost-prohibitive and resource-intensive. Wanclouds disaster recovery as a service gives every organization a simple and effective disaster recovery option to protect mission-critical data, ensure business continuity, and provide instant scalability across hybrid clouds.”
Wanclouds’ DRaaS is enabled through its SaaS-based automation suite VPC+, which provides a single pane of glass for managing and protecting hybrid cloud environments through a centralized cross-cloud solution. Wanclouds customers can leverage VPC+ for disaster recovery to back up all their VM and Kubernetes resources. They can restore it across different regions, physical servers, and clouds such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and IBM Cloud.
DRaaS is a reimagined approach to traditional disaster recovery strategies and eliminates the barriers for businesses seeking affordable, reliable, and compliant disaster recovery approaches. By offering disaster recovery ‘as a service’, Wanclouds manages on-demand backups for the servers or clusters businesses need and restores them instantly when needed. Instead of needing to allocate millions upfront to build and sustain disaster recovery infrastructure, companies can pay a fraction of the monthly cost for protecting their current servers and clusters.
Specific features of Wanclouds Multi-Cloud Disaster Recovery as a Service include:
Sign up and create backups via a few simple clicks
Infrastrastructure-wide snapshots that can be restored on-demand - VPC Configurations, Design, Kubernetes, Data, Virtual Machines
Flexibility to schedule backups on any timeline
Restore on-demand across clouds and regions from backed-ups
Backups are stored within the customer cloud-object store and are fully encrypted
Visualize infrastructure design and track consumption
On-demand views of disaster recovery spending with detailed consumption reports
Subscribers can take advantage of this new comprehensive backup and recovery option alongside Wanclouds' Cost Optimization as a Service (COaaS) solution for just $9.99 per resource. The offer is all-inclusive of DRaaS VMs, VPCs, and Kubernetes for one year, enabling users to unlimited backup configurations and restore them on demand.
“We understand that IT leaders are being asked to do more with less in the current market,” added Khan. “This blended solution enables them to address two of their top concerns for 2023 – cloud cost optimization and fully compliant backup – at an unbeatable price.”
Wanclouds is a leading multi-cloud SaaS solution and managed service provider. It helps enterprises with cloud deployments, migrations, backups, and cost-efficient cloud infrastructure optimization. The company’s Cloud Cost Optimization as a service (COaaS), Multi-Cloud Migration as a Service (MaaS), and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) cloud offerings reduce the financial investment and remove the technical complexities that halt or delay businesses from migrating on-premise to the cloud, moving across clouds, or setting up backup and restore protection. Its SaaS-based automation suite VPC+ provides a single pane of glass for managing and protecting multi-cloud environments through a centralized cross-cloud solution. Wanclouds is an AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud partner headquartered in Santa Clara, CA.

Channel Futures MSP Summit, Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced a security focused feature for Scale Computing Fleet Manager: Secure Link. This new feature provides cloud-like simplicity for administrators, giving them secure remote management access for complete control of their edge deployments with the click of a button from any browser and device, without the need for expensive or complex remote access solutions. Edge deployments are now just a secure click away on any browser, on any device, anywhere. For MSPs and IT teams, Secure Link and SC//Fleet Manager remove the burden of maintaining VPNs at each site, allowing for fast issue resolution with one-click access to any cluster from a single monitoring center.
"Currently, IT staff need to be on the same network as a cluster in order to access the HyperCore UI. When the IT admin is offsite, like in my MSP business where we manage multiple customer sites, we must find a way to gain access to the 'remote network' in order to perform SC//HyperCore management. The task of remote monitoring has been simplified with SC//Fleet Manager, but in the case of any changes being required, this local, secure access is a must," said Joe Kletch of Mulehill Networks. "Secure Link solves this problem by allowing IT teams and MSPs to quickly, easily, and securely gain complete management access to all of their edge deployments. Combined with ZTP, we can now remotely initialize and configure clusters with zero access to the cluster, or even the network the cluster is on. This is going to save me time and money."
Simplicity is engineered into Scale Computing Fleet Manager, making it easier than ever to securely monitor and manage workloads and infrastructure across an entire edge fleet of clusters running Scale Computing HyperCore. Instead of managing individual deployments, SC//Fleet Manager allows users to see and manage their entire fleet at once from an intuitive cloud-based console. Users can easily monitor connectivity and cluster health . Any problems across the fleet are highlighted automatically, and if there is an issue, IT administrators can drill down into a specific cluster to further diagnose and fix the problem.
"Unlike competitive solutions where accessing edge deployments requires on-cluster or VPN network setup, or traditional VPN access to local management software, SC//Fleet Manager's Secure Link is ready for use out-of-the-box. This tight integration also eliminates the risk associated with manual setup and maintenance of traditional remote management tools," explained Scott Loughmiller, Chief Product Officer and Co-founder, Scale Computing. "Edge computing deployments no longer require costly and cumbersome VPNs, which present another attack surface, when they manage their workloads and infrastructure with SC//Fleet Manager."
