Free Migration Available to Asigra Backup Solution

Leeds, UK – December 05, 2013 — / — Backup Technology (BTL), which specialises in online backup & disaster recovery services for global enterprises, is offering a lifeline to Symantec customers affected by the American company’s decision to close down its Backup service.

The offer of a free migration to all Backup customers comes after BTL moved Datek Solutions to its Asigra-based backup solution platform just days after the UK IT consultancy received an email from Symantec saying it would end its Backup and stop selling subscriptions or renewals in Jan 2014.  Datek is now centrally managing its multiple customers from BTL’s web-based monitoring portal.

Dave Twilley, Technical Services Manager for Datek Solutions, said: “A lot of our customers rely totally on cloud backup for things like exchange data and sensitive documentation so as soon as we got the end of life email from Symantec we knew we needed to act quickly. We spoke to BTL on the Friday and by the Monday morning all of our customer’s data was fully backed up. They did a great job.”

BTL is now offering a free migration service to all Backup customers. This will allow them to run BTL’s stable enterprise backup solution alongside the Symantec solution free of charge until the drop dead date of their contract.

Rob Mackle, Sales Manager and Channel Sales Manager EMEA for BTL, said: “Symantec’s announcement has left a lot of customers in limbo. We moved Datek onto our enterprise backup solution quickly and smoothly to ensure their customers were not left exposed from the EOL announcement and we’re now offering free migration to anyone else affected by Symantec’s decision. Once migrated, they can run our Asigra solution in tandem with Backup to see if it’s theright fit for them and to build up their data history.”

Asigra is the world’s leading online backup software developer and BTL is its largest global partner. The BTL offering provides an Enterprise and WAN optimised solution, allowing large amounts of data to be protected over small bandwidth connections.  BTL’s proprietary portal enables centralised web-based monitoring and consolidated daily emails giving customers full transparency of backups on a real time basis.

BTL, which is part of UK cloud company iomart Group, currently protects over 15 petabytes of data in the public and private cloud for customers including Siemens, British Red Cross, WPP, Pernod Ricard and Liverpool and Everton football clubs.
