Virtual storage services provider StoneFly, Inc. (StoneFly
) has announced it has expanded its ‘Cloud Storage for Veeam’ service into the Microsoft Azure Government platform. StoneFly, which has headquarters in California, United States, specializes in providing “simple and affordable storage optimization and disaster recovery protection through IP SAN solutions”. An arm of Dynamic Network Factory, Inc., the company provides “high-performance network attached storage, storage area networks, RAID and iSCSI systems”. The expanded ‘Cloud Storage for Veeam’ service applies to StoneFly’s existing Veeam customers and all potential customers.
Veeam partnered with StoneFly early last year in a joint Technology Alliance Program and now Cloud Storage for Veeam has been integrated with Microsoft Azure Government. Microsoft, Veeam and StoneFly have therefore formed a partnership that offers backup and disaster recovery solutions to commercial and government entities, and to other organizations like cloud service providers.
Microsoft Azure Government is highly secure and offers “unrivaled leadership through its commitment to certifications”. It can only be accessed by government customers and those providing services to government and non-government agencies that need to control data. Microsoft Azure is FISMA, FedRAMP, CJIS, ECSP, FedRAMP, HIPA and IRS1075-compliant and as StoneFly’s services are underpinned by Microsoft Azure Government, they meet fully government requirements.
Those interested in Cloud Storage for Veeam on Microsoft Azure Government can receive a free trial which includes “guidance from storage experts”. “Government agencies are especially encouraged to register for free trials in order to use a certified, easy to provision, reliable, secure, scalable and comprehensive disaster recovery solution”, explained a Stonefly press release.
