Echopath Delivers Asigra-Based Data Recovery Services to Support Leading Contract Manufacturer

TORONTO – May 8, 2013 – / – Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986 today announced that contract manufacturing leader, PacMoore, has selected Asigra cloud-based data recovery for enterprise data protection. PacMoore replaced its legacy tape backup system with Echopath’s cloud backup powered by Asigra and now boasts greater recovery performance, reliability and ease-of-use since making the transition.

Headquartered in Hammond, Indiana, PacMoore Products ( is a leading provider of contract manufacturing, contract packaging, and turnkey solutions for the global food industry, serving clients that include General Mills, Kraft/Nabisco and Pinnacle Foods. A privately held company founded over 18 years ago, PacMoore is one of the nation’s leading contract manufacturers, processing and packaging more than 150 million pounds of dry food ingredients per year. PacMoore made the switch to cloud-based data recovery when its IT needs overwhelmed the company’s tape backup solution, which had become increasingly cumbersome and cost prohibitive.

When the volume of PacMoore’s production data grew from 12 to 20 TB and the number of Xen Server-powered virtual machines expanded from 10 to 30 servers across three physical systems, the company’s tape-based backup system became burdensome, requiring extensive management time and financial resources to keep pace. PacMoore modernized its backup environment with Echopath’s cloud-based data recovery solution powered by Asigra to ensure the recovery of its critical information. This included application data from Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server and the company’s ERP system as well as a large volume of file data. All of this data is now automatically and regularly backed up according to policies set by PacMoore. In addition to protecting the company’s server data, PST Archive files on PacMoore’s desktop and laptop systems are also protected using the cloud-based recovery solution.

“When we initially started looking for alternatives to tape backup, we looked at Echopath,” said Scott Reid, VP, Operations for PacMoore. “They presented us with a solution that would eliminate the hassle of cataloging and sending backup tapes offsite and retrieving them for lengthy data recovery processes. With the service now fully deployed and several successful recoveries under our belt, the Asigra-based solution has given us the assurance of knowing our data is always accessible.”

Since making the transition, PacMoore has been impressed with the scalability, recovery response time and ability to recover locally or from Echopath’s remote data center. Other benefits include the ability to recover data back to any system/device in the network, including physical servers, virtual machines and/or desktops. Asigra’s device and platform agnostic solution ensures that all enterprise data is protected, allowing PacMoore to eliminate point solutions and consolidate backup operations. Finally, the user-friendly solution simplifies backup management and frees up valuable IT resources.

“Tape is no longer a viable option given other alternatives now available in the marketplace. Cloud-based data recovery is so much easier than having to find, load and retrieve data from tapes,” said Scott Reid, VP of Operations, PacMoore. “Thanks to Echopath and Asigra we have shaved off the number of hours spent on backup significantly and substantially improved our ability to recover from a data loss event regardless of where the data was originally located.”

Key benefits of the Asigra software solution for PacMoore include:

  • Scheduled automatic backups that ensure continuous data protection;
  • Easy, manageable and rapid response data recovery;
  • Enterprise-class fault tolerant capabilities for business continuity;
  • NIST FIPS 140-2 certified security advanced encryption for data in-flight and at-rest, and
  • Agentless architecture for seamless scalability as the volume of data grows.

“Cloud-based data recovery allows PacMoore to overcome the limitations of traditional backup software and legacy tape solutions,” says Chad Whaley, President of Echopath, LLC. “With high-performance recovery and dynamic capacity scaling to handle unlimited data growth, the technology enables businesses to recover thoroughly and quickly while minimizing operational and management costs.”
