Asigra Partners with Oracle on ZFS Storage Appliances (Comment by Asigra EVP Eran Farajun)

With data volume expanding dramatically in both enterprise and SMB sectors (with digital data doubling every two years, according to IDC), companies and organizations are increasingly dependent on digital data to drive their businesses. Providing cost-effective solutions for storing and protecting large capacities of data is becoming ever more critical for the managed service providers (MSPs) who serve these markets.

Oracle and Asigra

That’s where Asigra’s recently announced partnership with Oracle comes in. As of today, MSPs who have an existing, or form a new partnership with Asigra can purchase Asigra Cloud Backup software licenses and Oracle® ZFS Storage Appliances directly from Asigra. For MSPs with backup vaults approaching or exceeding 100 terabytes, or those looking to refresh low-performing storage hardware, combining an Oracle appliance with Asigra Cloud Backup provides an exceptionally high performance storage and data protection system while delivering lower operational and capital costs when compared to traditional solutions.

Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances are hybrid NAS storage systems that feature dynamic caching between DRAM, Flash, and disk drives, providing optimal storage for enterprise cloud and virtualized environments, where high efficiency, extreme performance and scalability are required. In combination with Asigra Cloud Backup, the appliances can be used to offer secure, reliable, and cost-effective data protection that’s far superior to build-your-own solutions.

Working with Oracle to lead the data protection market
It’s exciting for us at Asigra to work with Oracle to offer the powerful ZFS storage appliances along with our award-winning cloud backup software to service providers seeking high performance environments and greater productivity to meet growing customer demands for faster recovery times. Oracle does not offer its own backup solution, but by incorporating our backup and recovery software with the Oracle appliance, Asigra’s partners can now stand up an engineered solution that delivers a highly scalable storage infrastructure along with NIST FIPS 140-2 certified data encryption, comprehensive data protection for all data sources regardless of platform (including virtual and physical servers, containers, desktops, laptops, smartphones and SaaS-based applications), within a single agentless, multi-tenant platform.

One of our partners had the opportunity to deploy the Oracle ZFS Appliance along with our cloud backup software within their environment as a proof-of-concept trial. This partner found that running Asigra Cloud Backup on the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance ZS3-2 delivered 8x improvement in performance compared to his previous hardware platform. Our partner also achieved five 9s uptime and scaled up to one petabyte of storage with a single ZS3-2 system, while cutting overall storage costs by more than 30 percent.

The Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance is available in two models:

  • Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance ZS3-2, a midrange enterprise multiprotocol storage system ideal for use in performance-intensive workloads.
  • Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance ZS4-4, a high-end enterprise multiprotocol storage system for workloads demanding extreme performance and scalability.

The Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances along with Asigra Cloud Backup software licenses are exclusively available to Asigra partners at special pricing. For more information or to request a demo, please contact an Asigra Recurring Revenue Specialist, visit Asigra’s website, or contact Asigra at or 416-736-8111 ext. 1453.
