Sureline Systems Addressing the BCDR Industry
SI Team
Sunday, November 3, 2013
Based in Santa Clara, CA, with locations in Tokyo and India, Sureline Systems was founded in 2009 by leading business executives and BCDR technologists. Sureline has developed an enterprise-class, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) solution aptly named SUREedge. "SUREedge is developed from grounds up by the best-of-the-class technical experts offering the most versatile and complete end-to-end solution that is scalable, reliable, and easy-to-use," states Ravi Goyal, Co-Founder, President and CEO, Sureline Systems.

SUREedge offers the industry's most flexible deployment models including: local, site-to-site, ROBO, datacenters, private Clouds, and public Clouds (Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure). By utilizing enterprise-class hardware, the latest technologies in deduplication, compression, and encryption, offering 24x7x365 technical support, providing an intuitive user console, and creating an innovative business model, Sureline System's SUREedge solution has significantly raised consumer expectation in the BCDR market.

In the last 2 decades, the use of computers has become ubiquitous worldwide for every level of industry - with each wholly dependent on the continuous availability of their digital assets. Without this continuous availability, businesses will fail within a short period of time. According to a recent market study, 7 out of 10 of enterprises will fail within a year due to a single day without access to their critical digital assets.

Due to the incredible expense, complexity, and resource requirements, Fortune 500 companies generally only used a BCDR solution for their most critical data - utilizing expensive, redundant disk arrays, employing multiple software solutions, and off-site locations. This multi-vendor plan is extremely complex and expensive; thus not a reasonable solution for medium size enterprises.

According to Shawn Clouse, Director of Sales and Channel Development, "The SUREedge appliance offers a very attractive revenue-generating solution and business model for Managed Service Providers, Value Added Resellers, and System Integrators in North American markets. With all of SUREedge's customizable features, along with the enterprise-class features (managed failover, compression, deduplication, and encryption), Sureline partners are incorporating the SUREedge solution into insurance, manufacturing, medical, engineering, and marketing enterprises." SUREedge is a proven solution adopted by a Fortune 100 Japanese Data Systems and Storage company- the world leader in BCDR, replacing tapes with SUREedge in the Remote Offices and Branch Offices of their global enterprise customers in banking, retail, insurance, and automotive supply-chain industries.

"Sureline's BCDR appliance enables us to provide the type of services and dependability that our customers have come to expect - while being affordable, easy to manage, and requiring limited personnel resources," states Billy Buckley, CEO of ENT Networks (a Managed Services Provider).

The roadmap for SUREedge solution is prioritized according to the needs of our partners and their customers. Current roadmap focus is scaling SUREedge for large enterprise, automatic failover to remote and Cloud locations, and extending support to emerging platforms such as Open Cloud, Open Storage, and Open Stack.

By offering an enterprise-class appliance that includes robust hardware, the ability to backup/image virtual and physical machines, incorporates the requisite software technologies - all combined with versatile deployment models, SUREedge is the industry's most technologically advanced, expedient, and cost-effective BCDR solution.
Sureline Systems, a well-funded startup, has 54 employees and growing.

Ravi Goyal's storage experience includes: Datalane Systems (acquired by Hitachi-LG Data Systems - Japan) and Network Appliances. He also holds 3 US patents awarded and 1 US patent pending within the storage space. For more information, please visit the Sureline website: www.surelinesystems.com.
