Asigra Honours Fifosys for Best Public Cloud Implementation in Delivering Cloud Backup and Recovery Solutions
London â€“ June 23, 2010 â€“- /BackupReview.info/ –Fifosys, one of Europeâ€™s fastest growing providers of outsourced IT infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has been named as having the Best Public Cloud Implementation of the Asigra Cloud Backup platform. The award recognizes Fifosys for its success in the deployment and application of Asigraâ€™s Cloud Backupâ„¢ platform in a public cloud environment. Fifosys was honored for its leadership in this area at the recently-held Asigra Cloud Backup Partner Summit in Toronto.
Fifosys won the award for its work with the London Medical clinic. The organisationâ€™s previous tape-based storage system was rapidly becoming outdated, and in early 2009 the clinic started to look at solutions that could optimise its document backup and recovery. The aim was to ensure the ability to retrieve any lost data quickly and efficiently, especially in the event of a medical emergency. The tape-based system required staff to physically transport patient data, creating possible security and financial risks; consequently necessitating a more secure solution.
Fifosys carried out a full analysis of the companyâ€™s IT backup and data recovery needs. London Medical adopted Asigraâ€™s complete Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery Software service throughout the clinic.

The Asigra system works with live and archived data, so London Medical was able to request that any data over 30 days old was archived, leaving only 15GB of data active.Â Alternatively, the system could be set to provide staff with 90 days of financial backup.Â However, the archived data could still be instantly retrieved if needed, even if a patient had returned to the clinic after two yearsâ€™ absence.
London Medical provides some of the worldâ€™s most advanced consultant-led diagnostic outpatient facilities for diabetes, heart disease, endocrinology, obesity, osteoporosis and eye disease.
London Medical can now be confident that patient data is secure. As an accredited MSP, Fifosys was able to provide a security statement, allowing London Medical to tender for public sector contracts in addition to treating private patients.Â With an annual turnover of Â£5.9million, the company can also be certain that its financial data is protected, and that business continuity would be ensured in case of a systems failure.
Dr. Ralph Abraham, Clinical Director at London Medical, comments: â€œNow I feel confident that all of our data is constantly protected; even if our systems go down or the clinic has a fire or flood, I know we can still get the data back. Our patientsâ€™ data is the lifeblood of London Medical and it is a priority for us to protect it and be able to manage it in a way that does not affect front line service or care.â€
