Companies participating in the 2013 Product of the Year backup and DR software category included providers of backup and recovery software, cloud backup and recovery services, disaster recovery, snapshot and replication, electronic vaulting and archivers. The selected finalists reflect the diversity of technologies for data protection both in and beyond the data center. Asigra was recognized as one of the industry’s top backup and disaster recovery software products and stood out from the competition for product innovation and business value. According to the publication, Asigra was notable for its patent-pending recovery-based pricing model which was introduced in 2013.

“Asigra provides backup across physical, virtual and cloud environments,” said the editors of Storage Magazine and “Version 12.2 of Asigra Cloud Backup offers new data recovery analytics features, cloud-to-cloud support for Google Apps, single-pass backup for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint and VMware Data Recovery enhancements for failover/failback. The company’s new pricing model also decouples backup and recovery licensing.”

With industry standard pricing based on backup capacity, costs increase as data volumes grow. The Asigra Recovery License Model gives organizations the option of selecting a fair pricing alternative based on how little they recover. This new pricing option is based on a low, limited recovery cost so that expenditures remain low even as data volumes rise. Those who adopt this pricing model can anticipate immediate savings of 40% and long term savings of 60% to 70% as a result of separating backup and recovery license costs and associating price with recovery performance.

With recovery-based pricing, fees are based on a Recovery Performance Score that is calculated over a 12-month period (every 6 months in the first year). A waiver is provided for the single largest recovery event in any licensing term and only successful recoveries are included in the calculations. This allows customers who recover less to pay less, and costs are capped so customers never pay to recover more than 25% of their data which provides predictable costs.

“Recognition in this year’s Product of the Year awards is an honor for both our product and development teams,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “We feel that the ability to demonstrate business value is becoming increasingly important and version 12.2 raises the bar for all vendors in the category. Our Recovery License Model introduces a very clear pricing differentiator based on the product’s true business value – data recovery. This provides both immediate and long-term justification to the customer which has been applauded by experts throughout the industry.”
