Asigra Report Highlights Benefits of Virtual Disaster Recovery, Deduplication

Apr 20, 2011

Businesses and service providers using cloud-based backup and recovery solutions are achieving “significant returns” on IT investments, according to internal field research released by cloud backup and recovery software provider Asigra.

The returns cited include major reductions in hardware and software investments, greatly reduced maintenance- and support-related expenses and better use of IT resources to focus on more strategic IT objectives.

The company claimed global data deduplication makes the process more effective and increases the data deduplication ratio (the ratio of protected capacity to the actual physical capacity stored), which helps reduce the required capacity of storage hardware for backup data. Asigra Cloud Backup also offers the option of having multiple tiers of recovery, which is achieved through backup lifecycle management, local-only backup and system-agnostic storage interoperability.
