Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"For many small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), data is the most important asset. And that makes many SMBs vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters because few small business owners have been able to tackle the cost and complexity of data backup and disaster recovery processes. Zmanda, an open source, cloud-based data backup company, aims to change that.

""Our mission is to bring down the cost of backup and disaster recovery dramatically," said Chander Kant, Zmanda's chief executive officer. "That's in terms of both cost and complexity."

""We believe that more small businesses should think about backup and disaster recovery," Kant said. "We hope that by providing backup and disaster recovery solutions at low cost and complexity we can motivate more IT managers to look into their backup strategy."
