Vembu Technologies, a provider of backup and storage solutions, on Monday (20 April) made available for production StoreGrid Cloud AMI, an on-line backup 'virtual appliance' on Amazon Web Services.
According to the company, the combination of StoreGrid Cloud AMI and the Amazon Web Services infrastructure allows service providers to offer a scalable, secure and redundant on-line backup service to their small and medium business (SMB) customers without any upfront capital investment in a data centre.
On-line backup service providers can configure the virtual appliance to run as a backup server in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud This article or section needs sources or references that appear in reliable, third-party publications.

StoreGrid Cloud AMI will use the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to store backup data from client machines at remote locations. The virtual appliance also utilises Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS See Swiss Electronic Bourse.

In addition, service providers, who want to keep backup data in their own data centres, can use the virtual appliance as a replication server. This deployment will enable them to replicate the backup data into the Amazon S3 storage cloud, offering more redundancy to the data.
StoreGrid Cloud AMI is priced as an annual subscription per StoreGrid backup client, with USD30 for desktops and USD60 for servers. Testing the StoreGrid Cloud AMI virtual appliance requires an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account, available at http://aws.amazon.com.
