Now in its eleventh year, the Product of the Year awards by Storage magazine and have recognized data storage products that were either initially introduced in the last year or significantly enhanced over a prior version. Products were judged by a panel of users, analysts, consultants, and Storage magazine and editors. Asigra was recognized as one of the top 3 products in the Backup and DR Software category, beating out Acronis, CommVault, FalconStor Software, Quantum Corp., Continuity Software and Unitrends. Products eligible for consideration in this category include backup and recovery software, cloud backup and recovery services, DR, snapshot and replication, electronic vaulting and data archivers.

“Asigra provides backup across physical, virtual and cloud environments… Version 12.2 of Asigra Cloud Backup™ offers cloud-to-cloud backup for Google Apps, single-pass backup for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint, and VMware VDR enhancements for failover/failback,” noted “With version 12.2, Asigra Inc. unveiled a new pricing model that bills customers based on the amount of data they recover rather than on how much they back up.” According to one of the judges in the competition, “…from a business model perspective, [Asigra Cloud Backup v12.2 with the Recovery License Model] is a paradigm shift.”

With industry standard pricing based on capacity, backup costs increase as data volumes grow. The Asigra Recovery License Model 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. As part of this solution, proprietary analytics tracking software is included which generates actionable information to enable performance-based savings and more user control on how customers are billed for backup software/services. The groundbreaking backup software pricing model keeps the costs of data protection under control over time, even with the trend of rapid data growth showing no signs of slowing down.

“The key value proposition of backup software is data recovery and both our technology and business model center around that concept,” said Asigra CEO, David Farajun. “For the third year in a row Storage magazine has recognized Asigra and the innovations our solution brings to customers. The Recovery License Model has been a game-changer for the market and we appreciate this commendation by TechTarget.”
