Pancetera has announced that it has reached a OEM partnership with i365, a Seagate Company for its Pancetera SmartRead solution.
i365 provides data protection solutions which reside in the cloud, called Evault SaaS. I365 will use the SmartRead storage optimization component part of the Unite solution from Pancetera to help reduce data I/O when replicating VMs to the cloud for disaster recovery purposes.
SmartRead is a storage management and storage optimization solution for VMware virtual infrastructures which cuts unnecessary I/O operations by marking which parts of the virtual machine disk file are redundant or no longer in use. SmartRead recreates a normalized VM that is ready to boot while consolidating active data and synthesizing a dedupe optimized VMDK file.
