One of the first Asigra partners to adopt the Asigra Recovery License Model and integrate AWS into its cloud backup service is Fronde, a 350 person cloud service provider with 22 years of experience and offices throughout Australia and New Zealand. Fronde has been working with Asigra and AWS to build a cost efficient and agile cloud backup offering for mid-market and enterprise customers in the region. Fronde’s Cloud Backup service is designed to liberate organizations from backup concerns by delivering a simple, secure, and capital-free solution that allows organizations to shift from a CapEx model to OpEx and focus on more strategic IT innovations.

Harnessing the power of AWS and Asigra, Fronde provides a Backup-as-a- Service (BaaS) solution that protects data across physical, virtual, mobile and cloud computing environments. With this approach, Fronde enables mid-market and enterprise organizations to outsource their backup and recovery needs reducing the costs associated with the complexity of multi-platform, multi-device data protection. Fronde delivers a secure backup service that encrypts all data in transit and at rest using backup industry best practices and processes such as NIST FIPS 140-2 certification and AES – 256 encryption. The Fronde cloud backup solution powered by Asigra provides greater confidence to customers that there are no backup tapes to lose or fail.

Organizations considering Asigra with AWS serving as the backup vault location will benefit from a consumption-based OpEx model for affordable scalability without annual software licensing costs or costly upgrade cycles. Users simply choose the level of service that suits their organization, from self-service to a fully managed service. Regardless of whether deployed for public or hybrid cloud backup, AWS provides a scalable, secure and affordable alternative to locally managed infrastructure.

“As an Advanced Consulting Partner and Channel Reseller Partner of Amazon Web Services, we have six years of experience in leveraging the power of AWS. Now by running our Fronde Cloud Backup service powered by Asigra on AWS we are able to provide our customers with more flexibility,” said Ian Clarke, CEO, Fronde. “With AWS and Asigra, our clients use Fronde Cloud Backup to improve their IT operations efficiency leaving them with additional resources to focus on innovation and revenue generating activities.”

“This integration with AWS along with the Asigra Recovery License Model offers financial advantages for service providers challenged with driving down the initial and ongoing costs of backup infrastructure,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “Service providers that choose Amazon as their cloud storage platform gain access to a highly distributed, full-featured platform at a fraction of the cost of traditional infrastructure. We are pleased to partner with Fronde in their efforts to elevate efficiency of Cloud Backup- as-a Service throughout the region.”
