Oakville, ON, Jan. 11, 2012 –/– Stage2Data, under the leadership of Jeff Collier and Jacques Swanepoel, is today announcing the launch of Attix5 in North America. Stage2Data is already recognized as expert in the area of data backup and recovery.

Attix5 is a leading, international provider of secure data management, storage and restoration, specializing in virtualization and cloud based solutions.

Stage2Data earned the title of Attix5 Master Distributor for North America because of their proven ability to launch and grow next generation technology. Jeff Collier and Jacques Swanepoel form the executive team at Stage2Data and were key contributors to EVault during its inception and up to its sale to Seagate in 2007 for $185M. Their experience and in-depth understanding and insight made Stage2Data the ideal team to introduce Attix5.

Comprehensive data management is now undeniably crucial to the successful running of a business in any industry. Jeff Collier, CEO at Stage2Data, echoes what Michael Law, CEO at Attix5, says, “Corporate governance is now a real buzz term within the boardroom of any modern organization.” Stage2Data with Attix5 is poised to capitalize on this growing desire for cloud based or virtual data management solutions.

Attix5 has proven itself internationally and is a longstanding partner of Capita SIMS (Schools Information Management Solutions) in the United Kingdom (UK). Attix5 is used nationwide by 65% of UK primary schools. Its partnership with London Grid for Learning (LGfL) means all 33 London school authorities are now protected by a reliable, automated information back-up and restoration system. This equates to a total of 1.2m pupils across 3000+ locations, incorporating thousands of teaching resources, which are now being protected by Attix5.

Set up in South Africa in 1999, Attix5 is now officially head quartered in the UK, a position cemented by the relocation of the company’s Technical Director to assist operations. The relocation comes at a time when the importance of good data management is at an all time high.

Stage2Data, with the title of North American Master Distributor for North America has declared 2012 to be the year that Enterprise and SMB move forward into the next generation of backup and recovery.
