Capacity- and agent-based backup pricing models currently dominate the backup and recovery software market. However, these pricing schemes are becoming obsolete due to the large volumes of data growth facing organizations today. Furthermore, the decline in benefits of these models, in which users pay based on the volume of data they protect, is less appealing as data volumes grow and costs rise. This makes it hard to predict the price users are actually signing up for when selecting software or services.

In this webinar, Asigra will discuss the challenges of existing cloud data backup and recovery pricing models and how vendor pricing options are evolving to be fairer and simpler to use. Looking at other industries such as the auto insurance market provides examples of innovative pricing strategies that can be more compelling for customers and consequently drive adoption.

Key topics to be addressed in this webinar include:
•       Dominant models in cloud backup and recovery pricing today
•       Limitations of traditional pricing models (with examples)
•       Industries that have innovated around pricing to improve customer retention (Auto insurance industry and others)
•       Lessons learned from early pricing model innovators, including failures and successes
•       Potential challenges with new pricing schemes

“Today, backup and recovery pricing is based on the volume of data or number of machines being protected, which we think is unfair to the IT buyer,” said Tracy Staniland, VP, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “This webinar promises a new look at controlling costs associated with data growth. Asigra’s Recovery License Model reshapes the pricing framework, allowing users to keep backup and recovery costs affordable and predictable, despite the trend toward data escalation.”
