Asigra Helps Pension Firm Plan for the Future

London, UK, 20th April 2011 –/– Asigra, a leading Cloud Backupâ„¢ Recovery and Restore software provider since 1986, today announced details of its work alongside partner Databarracks ( to help DMGT Pensions revolutionise its backup system and move away from its old tape-based structure.

The company’s 1TB of data is now backed up using Asigra Cloud Backup, and recovery has been significantly sped up; restores that were taking an entire day are now being done in a matter of a couple of hours. It is hoped that recovery times will be further slashed once the team’s virtualisation plans are completed; Asigra Cloud Backup has the potential to grow and develop dynamically with the company’s future IT plans.

Data such as SQL, payroll and pension administration is a priority for the firm, and Asigra Cloud Backup’s reliability and appealing financial advantages, alongside a great support network provided by Databarracks, proved the right fit for DMGT. The solution’s ease of use, ability to keep critical data secure and the provision of a dedicated support network were important factors when looking for a new backup system, alongside a fully tested method of recovery with full documentation.

Harish Patel, head of IT at DMGT says, “We chose Asigra Cloud Backup from Databarracks as we found the solution was proven and the team are very professional. I believe they understand related issues from a client perspective and we have experienced fantastic support throughout the whole operation.”

Peter Groucutt, Managing Director at Databarracks is happy to have provided the firm with just the right solution for their needs. “Tapes no longer need to be requested and brought in from the company HQ; recovery of files is now quick and easy, and we are always on hand to provide assistance should there be any questions.”

Ashar Baig, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Asigra, adds, “by outsourcing their data recovery and backup plans to experts, DMGT have taken away much of the worrying about their strategy, allowing staff to focus on what they do best.”
