Trilio Data and Talligent, providers of cost and capacity management solutions for production-ready OpenStack clouds, have entered into a partnership. Organizations who use both Trilio Data's solutions and Talligent's solutions will have both comprehensive data protection and capabilities to report and bill departments and divisions for their use of data protection services. 

"There's a common misconception that OpenStack does not need comprehensive data protection," said Sanjay Mishra, founder and CEO, Talligent. "In truth, the inherent features in OpenStack warrant a completely new thinking around data protection services. TrilioVault from Trilio Data delivers full capabilities to backup, migrate and restore their OpenStack applications, data and files."

"As more and more organizations deploy applications on OpenStack, they need strong management tools to understand data usage and costs," said David Safaii, CEO, Trilio Data. "Talligent's Openbook gives organizations the visibility to understand their cloud service consumption and growth patterns, and to charge departments or end users appropriately for the back-up and migration services provided through Trilio."

TrilioVault, the flagship product from Trilio Data, is a subscription-based, tenant-driven, agent-less, non-disruptive and incremental data protection service for OpenStack. With the solution, users can either selectively or with one-click, restore production or clone point-in-time data for both development and testing. The solution has built-in high availability and scalability, with the option to replicate workloads for disaster recovery.

Openbook is designed to quickly answer management questions about hybrid cloud environments, providing detailed cost and consumption data across AWS, VMware, and OpenStack. Tenants, operators, and executives have access to real-time project cost and consumption information in order to bill for usage, plan for timely capacity growth, and maintain high resource utilization.

Talligent is one of many OpenStack vendors joining Trilio Data's partner program. Trilio Data's ecosystem consists of notable vendors and service providers in the OpenStack community, including Blue Box (acquired by IBM), Datastax, mongoDB, NetApp, OnX Enterprise Solutions, Red Hat, SwiftStack, VMware.
