Asigra Installation and Configuration Services
Old school agent-based backup and recovery solutions require software to be installed on each host server that you want to back up. Using agents with either a tape or a disk-to-disk (D2D) product directly impacts system performance, data security, recoverability and costs. And if you have ever worked with them, you know that agent management gets complex, cumbersome and can consume large amounts of time.
Even in a modest-sized environment, agent management can get extremely complex when an administrator is forced to deal with different operating systems and revision levels. The complexity of agent management is further complicated by the growing number of software packages that also require agents running on the same host servers, or what is also referred to as “agent pollution”.
With traditional agent-based backup software one has to follow the steps to perform backups:
Take an inventory of the applications and servers that need to be protected on the customer’s LAN
Share it with the partner/vendor/Service Provider (Disclose network information)
Ensure the configuration is accurate and buy the appropriate number of agents
Buy additional agents when you add servers, applications and databases
Upgrade all agents each time there is a hot fix or new version of the agent based software
Application disruptive – servers with hot fix or new version of the agent software need to be rebooted
With Asigra there are no agents installed for each machine or application that needs to be protected, instead it reaches out over the network to back up operating systems, file systems, and applications, using industry standard programming interfaces. Eliminating the security risks associated with agents.
Dealing with backup software agents is a cumbersome and mundane task that can be extremely time consuming. Matching agent revisions with operating system levels, researching compatibility issues, and other labor-intensive tasks are nonexistent when using Asigra Cloud Backup. Mass deploy to unlimited number of sites within minutes.

Many problems that occur while managing backup software are due to agent bugs and their incompatibility with host servers. Asigra is inherently easier to support and the risk of problems is reduced as compared to other solutions because of its agentless design. Eliminate non-application disruptions – version upgrades are silent and do not require a reboot.
Traditional backup and recovery software puts agents onto servers, causing processing power to be stolen away from a server’s core application to feed the needs of the agents. Asigra’s agentless architecture makes no such demands of the servers it is backing up. The agentless design of Asigra Cloud Backup significantly reduces total cost of ownership.
