Kovarus, Inc., a systems integrator specializing in increasing IT efficiency by architecting and integrating business-aligned IT solutions, has signed an agreement with VirtualSharp Software, a provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, for Recovery Assurance solutions for the private cloud.
According to the terms of the agreement, Kovarus will integrate VirtualSharp Software’s technology with virtualization and storage solutions. As a result, Kovarus’ customers can now avail Recovery Assurance, allowing them to reduce the cost of Disaster Recovery while protecting applications better.
