World’s first Recovery as a Service Platform patent issued

Geminare has announced that on March 13th, 2012 the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued it US Patent #8,135,838, ‘System and method for providing data and application continuity in a computer system.’ This patent is claimed by Geminare to be the first to be issued for a Recovery as a Service (RaaS) enablement technology.

The patent covers the underlying Geminare CORE Platform, which has been used by Microsoft, Long View Systems, Hosting.com, OpSource and many others to launch cloud recovery solutions utilizing their cloud infrastructure offerings. The CORE Platform is also enabling software companies, including CA Technologies, Iron Mountain and LexisNexis, to transition existing software products from single licence, on-premises software into entirely cloud-based data protection offerings such as Cloud Recovery, Virtual Server Rapid Recovery and more.

“The issuing of this patent serves to highlight the value and significance of the Recovery as a Service marketplace and underscores the importance of the relevant work that Geminare is involved in,” said Joshua Geist, Geminare’s president and CEO. “The marketplace has shown us that traditional technologies and processes are no match for the substantial benefits that the cloud provides to the data protection industry, and we are thrilled to have been recognized within this vital and transformative sector.”
