Enterprise Focused Cloud Services Provider Demonstrates Cloud-Based Virtual Machine Recovery, Powered by Asigra

SAN FRANCISCO AND TORONTO - August 27, 2012 — / — Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud BackupRecovery and Restore (BURR) software provider since 1986 and NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), today joined forces at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco to demonstrate cloud-based backup and recovery for the enterprise. NTT America’s turnkey cloud backup solution incorporates data protection services and virtual disaster recovery (VDR) to ensure enterpriseclass recovery in the event of data loss.

During this year’s North American VMware event, NTT America will present live demonstrations of NTT America’s advanced cloud backup solution to ensure data and application continuity. The service is ideal for virtualized operating environments and provides the reliability, flexibility, operational efficiency, and security required for mission-critical business operations. Attendees will experience how NTT America’s cloud backup offering optimizes business uptime and regulatory compliance while reducing the capital expense, management and complexity of traditional data protection models.

NTT America’s cloud backup service powered by Asigra modernizes data protection with:

  • Enterprise-class backup and recovery that protects the entire digital footprint from the data center to the mobile device
  • Cross-platform support across distributed IT environments
  • Automated mass deployment and centralized management
  • Support for local and remote recovery in public, private and hybrid cloud backup configurations
  • Limitless protection of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure
  • FIPS 140-2 certification for the highest level of security assurance. FIPS 140-2 certification is the most current security requirement for cryptographic modules and data encryption. (View the NIST document here).
  • Affordable long-term backup data retention that scales based on requirements

“Virtualized operating environments can provide phenomenal efficiencies. However, they can also present special challenges, especially in the areas of data protection and disaster recovery. This is where tape-based approaches to data protection fall short,” said Doug McMaster, Vice President, NTT America Data Center Services. “VMworld 2012 is an excellent venue to showcase NTT America’s cloud-based data protection and how it frees virtual infrastructure from performance robbing software agents. Those who experience one of our live demonstrations will see how a more modern approach to data recovery stacks up against alternative data protection models.”

“We are proud to join with NTT America in presenting a more reliable, secure and efficient solution for virtual machine data recovery,” said Tracy Staniland, Senior Director, Corporate Marketing, Asigra.”With VMware present in the majority of IT environments it is critical that organizations have access to solutions like those provided by NTT America and Asigra that deliver on the promise of virtualization.” Visit NTT America at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco from August 26-30 in booth #2223. NTT America is one of several Asigra cloud service provider (CSP) partners at VMworld in the Asigra Partner Passport Program.
