Asigra Cloud Backup v10 Extends Reach and Recovery Performance with Launch of DS-Mobile, Tiered Recovery Options and Expanded Protection for Virtualized Infrastructures
TORONTO â€“ June 7, 2010 â€“ Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup and recovery software provider since 1986, today announced Asigra Cloud Backupâ„¢ v10. The latest edition extends the reach and performance of the Asigra platform across the broadest range of computing environments, from small businesses to the Global 100. Advancements now include comprehensive protection for laptops, desktops, servers, data centers and cloud computing environments with tiered recovery options to meet the most stringent Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs).
With Asigra Cloud Backup v10, Asigra extends its backup and recovery technology leadership across public, private and hybrid cloud environments. V10 expands the tiers of backup and recovery (Local-Only Backup and Backup Lifecycle Manager (BLM) enabled cloud storage) and allows the backup of laptops in the field and other environments, so that customers can backup and recover their data to and from physical, virtual or mix of physical and virtual servers.
The Asigra Cloud Backup platform is a transformational backup architecture that was designed to leverage the efficiencies of cloud computing. The platform allows flexible and affordable service delivery to any size organization from small businesses to the distributed enterprise and is aligned with the technology and performance demands of modern IT infrastructures. With Asigra Cloud Backup v10, users improve recovery times, reduce operational costs and are provided with data protection without limits to meet dynamic IT requirements. New features include:
Traditional approaches to SMB and enterprise backup have not kept up with exponential data growth, variances in information value and complexities within the IT environment. Organizations continue to waste brainpower and precious resources on backup and recovery operations when it should be a routine task in todayâ€™s cloud computing era. Asigra Cloud Backup is next generation backup and recovery software optimized for cloud computing and designed to offer backup and storage efficiencies unavailable with traditional backup architectures by allowing users to capture less, ingest less, and store less data thereby reducing the amount of backup software cycles and storage hardware required to deploy and maintain high levels of data protection.
Balancing Performance and Cost with Tiered Recovery Options
â€œThe local backup option is a powerful benefit for Managed Service Providers as they can now offer more pricing granularity for customers on three levels â€“ local, new and aging data.â€ said Lauren Whitehouse, senior analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. â€œWith more pricing flexibility for local backup, service providers offering cloud backup can offer a faster, more reliable and affordable backup service package to attract more business customers and free them from the pain of tape backup.â€
