TORONTO – February 5, 2015 — / — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced it has been named as one of the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors of 2015 by CRN. The annual list recognizes the most innovative cloud storage vendors and solutions tailored to address the channel industry’s unique needs. Asigra was recognized for expanding its cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery capabilities and announcing support for Docker Containers.

Customers have shown that cloud storage is a viable option for a wide range of services that traditionally were within the purview of on-premise storage, including data protection, disaster recovery, archiving, etc.This year, CRN is honoring the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors in an effort to help solution providers better understand the technology marketplace and identify the best solutions to support the IT channel. Winners are named across the category for platforms and tools, infrastructure, hardware and software, based on data and information gathered from both solution provider nominations and the CRN editorial team.

“The channel is increasingly moving toward the cloud, adding solutions in key areas of their service portfolios.
