Kuwait City, 20 October 2021 – LEAN, A Kuwait based private-cloud services provider that offers Virtual Data Centers, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and Backup as a Service (BaaS) solutions, announced a new partnership with Cristie Software, a leader in software development specializing in recovery and replication software to and from physical, virtual and cloud environments.

The partnership with Cristie Software enables LEAN to add Bare Metal Restore (BMR) to its Disaster Recovery as a Service portfolio. BMR recovers the entire system, in one step, to any point in time available in the client’s backup files. The system can be restored to physical, virtual, or cloud environments.

“In today’s virtual business environment, data is king, and safeguarding your organization’s data from the severe consequences of catastrophic events and having the ability to rapidly recover from such events couldn’t be more crucial.” Said Mr. Fajhan Almutairi, CEO of LEAN. “Our partnership with Cristie Software adds to our ability to aid our clients by offering a data restore from bare metal restore option.”

Mr. Ewan MacLeod, speaking on behalf of Cristie Software, he added, “Through our discussions with LEAN, we found their years of experience in the local IT sector, as well as their professional certifications, made LEAN the ideal partner to bring our software solutions to the Kuwaiti market. The natural synergy between LEAN’s data protection services and Cristie Software’s advanced system recovery solutions couldn’t be more clear, and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

The cloud-based DRaaS and BaaS solutions feature SLA-backed 100% data availability. It uses a pay-as-you-grow consumption model for flexibility and cost effectiveness. Since the solution is delivered “as a service,” no hardware investment is required. This makes it ideal for organizations under increasing pressure to reduce capital budgets during the current global pandemic.
