Johannesburg, SA – Jan. 28, 2014 — / — Attix5, a global provider of data protection software and cloud solutions, has played an instrumental role in helping its client, Exponential-e, bolster its business IT services through the implementation of a competitive, cost-effective data backup and storage solution.

Dominic Anshultz, Head of Cloud Operations at Exponential-e, explained: “Our strength has always been in our ability to constantly innovate and invest in technology services and operations to provide our customers with market-leading business IT solutions. The foundation of our business is offering world-class networking and related products and services; however, as our customers followed the trend in producing increasing amounts of data, it became very clear that we needed to provide a more competitive backup solution.”

Exponential-e customers wanted a backup solution that was reliable, secure and cost-effective, with a high capacity for data storage. To ensure competitiveness, the backup solution also had to be quick and easy for Exponential-e to implement on all operating platforms, across all types of businesses, and in any sector.

Following an extensive search and tendering process, Exponential-e selected Attix5′s enterprise-ready cloud-based data storage, backup and restoration solution, Attix5 Pro V7.

Pro V7 uses streaming back up for faster processing and supports all operating platforms, including Microsoft, Linux, Apple iOS and Solaris. Using the cloud, it provides greater speed, flexibility and scalability for businesses of all sizes and in any sector, making it incredibly cost-effective.

“Attix5 won us over because they offered the best functionality at a competitive price. The storage capabilities in particular were excellent, with Attix5′s algorithms offering us the capacity to store high volumes of data in a comparatively small amount of disk space. This ability to fit more real data onto a physical disk is really valuable for us because it reduces the amount of resources required, helping increase profitability,” explained Anshultz. “The speed and ease of integration of Pro V7 with our other product offerings is also a great benefit, allowing us to tailor our offering to the business requirements of each customer.”

Attix5 Pro V7 also offers world-class data protection, using the FIPS-compliant Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption for security.

“Security and data protection are high priorities for all businesses, so it’s important our products adhere to the necessary compliance regulations. The robustness and level of security the Attix5 solution offers is really impressive, giving us complete peace-of-mind that our customers’ data and IT systems will be protected,” continued Anshultz.

Attix5 Pro is compatible with all hardware and system platforms, saving on installation costs. It offers easy deployment for businesses of all sizes, including virtual data centre customers with multiple sites.

“When it came to deploying Attix5 Pro, it was incredibly quick and easy, taking less than a day to build the solution into our product suite. As it’s compatible with all hardware, it saved on installation costs, and the scalability meant it was as easy to deploy to our single-site customers as it was our virtual data centre customers with multiple sites. Throughout the deployment and early stages of running, Attix5 provided an excellent level of service and valuable support, ensuring fast, smooth integration.”

The results
Since integrating Attix5 Pro into its product suite, Exponential-e has carried out a number of successful deployments, and is continually seeing its profitability and uptake increase.

“Integrating Attix5 Pro has allowed Exponential-e to remain competitive in a space subject to rapid changes and new market demands. Our expanded product offering means we can now meet all our customers’ data backup, management and storage needs in all sectors, from housing authorities to health and leisure and financial institutions, at a highly competitive price.”

“As a partner, Attix5 has also really impressed, providing excellent assistance to ensure we have successful deployments. We really couldn’t have chosen a better data backup solution or company to work with,” concluded Anshultz.

Robert Kellerman, Marketing Manager at Attix5, said Exponential-e reflects the level of efficiency that can be derived from the strategic placement of the right technology solutions. “We are proud of the work we have done with our client. In addition to the significant technical value that our product offers, we know that Exponential-e has the in-house ability and passion to grow its organisation and expand its value proposition.”
