Service update: Silver-lining Protect – now with self-service backup for VMs

CloudCreator clients now in driver’s seat to self-manage backups for workloads in Revera’s Homeland Cloud and Azure Stack

Revera’s mission to put clients at the controls of their hybrid cloud environments has taken another step forward, thanks to the introduction of self-service image-level backups for workloads running in Revera’s Homeland Cloud and Azure Stack by CloudCreator.

Replacing a manual process involving Revera’s service desk, newly-added functions to CloudCreator put the IaaS Holy Trinity – VMs, storage, and image-level backups – at client fingertips.

Revera GM Business Development Troy Myer said the addition of self-service backup for VMs filled a missing link in the company’s CloudCreator toolset.

“Clients want to pull the levers on their core services. Asking them to go offline to back up their VMs doesn’t wash,” he said. “More than simply speed and convenience, self-service backup ensures clients do a better job of protecting their workloads in a timely fashion”.

CloudCreator dashboards show precisely which VMs are backed up, success rates, and backup policies – information previously managed by Revera’s service desk.

Earlier this year Revera launched an in-country backup target for its locally-hosted Microsoft hybrid cloud platform Azure Stack by CloudCreator. At the time of launch, clients could use self-service tools to provision local backups for their Azure Stack VMs, but still had to lodge a service request to deactivate backups. Self-service deactivation options are now available in CloudCreator.
