One of the biggest concerns of large organizations are down or malfunctioning servers, which can significantly affect a product’s ability to functioning, and that’s before we talk about the angry customers who are sure to follow once they find out the service is not available.

Israeli startup Semperis is interested in helping companies and organizations to protect themselves and their important information from such situations by preparing for disaster recovery and organizational infrastructure problems.

Keeping your head in the clouds

It does not matter how prepared a company is in advance, it’s likely that at some point every organization will experience a server failure at one time or another. In the early stages of a company malfunctions or server failures of this type should be easily repaired in just a few minutes time without losing too much information, but if the organization is large and handles huge amounts of data – the recovery time may be extremely long and will could lead to significant financial losses.

Enter Semperis, an Israeli startup offering an infrastructure recovery solution called for Microsoft’s Active Directory, a utility package for enterprise network management used in most major global organizations.

The Company’s solution provides infrastructure reconstruction for the applicative layer. That is, it backs up data and saves it on its private cloud, along with the creation of Reference Sites for its customers. Through this system customers will be able to track changes made ​​in the workspace, locate faults and various failures and perform recovery Roll-Backs for any change they want. As part of these changes, customers will be able to make small changes such as changing individual email addresses and authorization to restore the whole environment in good working condition.

In practice, the service is an RaaS offering or a Recovery as a service package. The difference between this option and other cloud-based backup services on the market today is that Sempris also offers protection for various data and computing capacity on demand to enable faster recovery.

 Organization for the organization

Semperis was founded in February of 2013 by Michael Dubinsky, Matan Lieberman, Mickey Brezniuk and Guy Teverovsky. The idea for Semperis was born following Dubinsky’s and Teverovsky’s Field Engineering work at Microsoft, where the two worked with the IT departments of enterprise customers in Israel and abroad to solve for server failures in the Active Directory and Identity.

As a result, the two entrepreneurs set out to create an entirely new company with the intention of providing a convenient solution for server recovery that was fast, safe and reliable using the knowledge they accumulated during their time at Microsoft.

However, this market is not small at all and Semperis has a number of direct competitors, including Dell (after acquiring Quest Software) who offers their own solution in the form of Active Directory Recovery Manager, alongside other companies such as NetWrix, NetIQ and BeyondTrust.

The company explains that its major advantage over competitors is that its solution is the first solution that actually lowers the dependency on enterprise infrastructure and provides a complete solution for the collapse of the Information Center. In addition, the company relies on applicative backup technology developed to enable the complete reconstruction of the environment within minutes, as opposed to the current process that could take hours.

The company also added that along with backup and restore options, the system provides a solution for cyber attacks to corporate infrastructure as well. The fact that customers can now restore the environment allows them to cut off hackers who have managed to slip into the corporate infrastructure and to re-take control of their environment.

The company is currently bootstrapping their finances and offers its services for a monthly subscription fee based on the amount of active users in an organization. The company plans to launch its service in early 2014 within the framework of a closed beta, but they’re already working with a number of large organizations in the country as they continue to get their product ready for its beta launch.
