Acronis and Vertical Communications Deliver Integrated Disaster Recovery Solution for Wave IP

Burlington, MassachusettsNovember 28, 2011

‘On-the-box’ Wave Live Image utility delivers unified communications continuity

Santa Clara, CA and Woburn, MA, November 28, 2011 - Vertical Communications, Inc., a provider of next-generation IP telephony systems and integrated B2B unified communications (UC) solutions and Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced a technology partnership to deliver an easy-to-use business continuity solution that protects the Vertical Wave IP® business communications system. When disaster strikes, Wave Live Image powered by Acronis®, will cost-effectively enable Wave users to quickly restore their system, allowing communications to be up and running again, reducing disruptions to service.

Wave Live Image is an easy-to-use utility that schedules regular snapshots of a Wave IP system, providing administrators with a fast, effective restoration process. Live Image snapshots are automatically compressed to minimize storage requirements and can be stored on a secondary drive on the Wave IP, on a network file server, or at an offsite location for ultimate peace of mind.

“With so many growing companies now reliant on the competitive advantage unified communications gives them in running their business, being able to quickly restore their Wave IP communications system provides Vertical customers with the peace of mind that they can be back up and running in a matter of minutes,” said Peter Bailey, president and chief executive officer of Vertical Communications. “It’s easy to see how having restore capabilities for IP communications platforms is becoming a necessity where communications are considered the lifeblood of company operations.”
