TORONTO – November 18, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced that long-term partner Global Micro has introduced new technologies to drive down the cost and complexity of enterprise backup. New innovations include performance-based recovery pricing for immediate backup savings and integrated cloud-to-cloud backup to protect data stored in cloud applications and platforms, including Microsoft Azure.
Global Micro is one of the largest cloud providers and Microsoft partners in South Africa with more than 250,000 users and 18,000 customers. Since 1994, the company has defined the managed services landscape, focusing on quality high-value solutions for small and medium businesses, enterprises and multi-nationals. Founded by a group of highly skilled, tech-savvy entrepreneurs, the organization has become one of the most experienced IT providers of diverse, comprehensive and business-related managed technology services in the country.
According to JJ Milner, Founder and Managing Director at Global Micro, “As we grew and our customers became more sophisticated, we found that the existing backup technologies we were using were not up to task. We added Asigra to our portfolio six years ago as the platform enabled us to expand our backup services and facilitate substantial cost reductions for customers that wanted to back-up more data across more devices. With our new recovery-based pricing and infrastructure that becomes more efficient as data volumes rise, our customers benefit from greater economies of scale. These innovations ensure confidence that customer data is secured reliably and within budget.”
The Global Micro portfolio includes hosted services for Exchange, Level Platforms (RMM), McAfee, SharePoint, virtual machines as well as online backup. The hosted infrastructure provider has standardized on Asigra for Global Micro’s RecoveryVault Online Backup services. The agentless backup and recovery software is the only end-to-end cloud backup enablement solution flexible enough to meet the needs of customers ranging from small businesses to the global enterprise. As the first service provider in the region to deploy the Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM), Global Micro provides end-customers with immediate backup savings and long-term cost controls.
For many businesses, backup and recovery is becoming more expensive as a result of exponential data growth and legacy pricing models. Traditional approaches require users to pay for software/services based on the capacity of data backed up (price per TB). At the current rate of data growth, costs are quickly becoming unsustainable. The Recovery License Model gives IT professionals more control over these costs, even as organizational data grows. Those using RLM can anticipate immediate savings of 40% and long term savings of 60% to 70% as a result of associating price with recovery performance. Simply put, as customers recover less, the cost of backup decreases.
Global Micro IT service professionals hold a leadership position in Asigra Cloud Backup™ software certifications in the region, with multiple Asigra Certified Engineer “ACE” certified IT professionals – Asigra’s highest certification level. The expertise gained through the certification process provides end-customers with the highest levels of competency in the planning, design and execution of their backup infrastructure.
“Asigra’s strengths go beyond technology innovation to true business enablement, providing the training, sales and marketing support that delivers value beyond software,” continued Milner. “With pricing innovations that displace the unfair practices of competitors and end-to-end data protection that eliminates the management headaches and scaling issues of alternative products, RecoveryVault powered by Asigra has become the de facto leader in the area – bar none.”
Designed for efficient performance and compatibility with public, private and hybrid cloud architectures, Asigra Cloud Backup advantages include:
“With some of the most demanding IT environments in the world, Global Micro serves a huge number of customers of every scope and size, including many with distributed, multi-platform IT infrastructures,” said Tracy Staniland, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “Asigra provides the only standalone solution capable of recovering all data regardless of device type or operating system. This allows Asigra to go where no others can to ensure businesses remain online.”
