Baltimore-based IT professional services firm Panthera Technologies has released a suite of cloud-based business solutions, including virtual desktops, cloud servers and backup-as-a-service (BaaS).

The company said the new solutions are designed to help businesses become more agile and responsive.

"In order to succeed today, businesses must be agile and responsive, and cloud-enabled technologies fulfill those needs," Panthera Technologies CEO J. Todd Jennings said in a prepared statement. "With the ability to quickly provision virtual desktops that provide anytime, anywhere access for a mobile workforce, plus the assurance that mission-critical data is protected and available should a disaster occur, companies can focus on their business rather than worrying about technology," Jennings said.

Jennings said he believes the solutions are "secure, highly available and redundant" cloud options for businesses in all verticals.

"Everybody wants everything on the go," Jennings told Talkin' Cloud. "The cloud gives us the benefit of having everything centralized and giving businesses access to data on the go from their mobile devices."

How do the solutions work?

Here's a complete breakdown of each of the new Panthera Technologies offerings: 

  • Virtual desktops -- Panthera Technologies' desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) allows employees to remotely access Windows desktops, applications and programs via mobile devices. It is powered by VMware Horizon DaaS.
  • Cloud servers -- Companies can use these servers to create a hybrid or full cloud environment. The Panthera Technologies cloud is powered by Veeam Software and "exceeds industry standards for security and compliance."
  • Disaster recovery and BaaS -- Panthera Technologies leverages Zerto's vStream disaster recovery technology to continuously replicate data in the cloud. The company's BaaS delivers cloud backup and meets compliance and security requirements in various industries, including the financial services, e-commerce and healthcare sectors.

Panthera Technologies said all of the solutions are powered by Cirrity, a cloud services provider (CSP) that offers infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms to independent software vendors (ISVs), managed services providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs).
