Feb 13, 2012

Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that, through its new partnership with Parallels, the hosting and cloud services enablement leader, service providers and their customers will gain easy access to APS-certified cloud backup services powered by award-winning Asigra software. The announcement is being made in Orlando during Parallels Summit 2012, an event that attracts a global audience of over 1,200 leading participants from across the cloud and hosting industry.

As part of this new partnership, Asigra will highlight the newest cloud backup technology and go-to-market strategies in its presentations at the Parallels Summit, explaining how the combination of Parallels Automation and Asigra can help service providers deliver a profitable cloud backup service.

"Cloud backup is central to any service provider’s offerings," said John Zanni, Parallels VP of Service Provider Marketing and Alliances. "We are thrilled to have Asigra join the ecosystem of APS-certified applications to help meet the growing SMB demands for hosted infrastructure."

The combination of Parallels Automation and Asigra’s unique cloud storage solution offers service providers a turnkey portfolio of storage services. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the volume of data worldwide is expected to increase 50 times by 2020. However, many organizations are already experiencing a high level of data growth. Businesses must identify much better approaches to data management, retention, storage, sharing, access and security in order to effectively deal with this growth. This need presents service providers with an expanding business opportunity to increase their total addressable market by offering an automated, secure backup service in the cloud.

“Data is the lifeblood of any organization, so recoverability in a crisis is critical for sustaining business continuity,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra, Inc. “Cloud backup is increasingly becoming the data protection option of choice for many organizations, especially SMBs that ,require the assurance of enterprise-level data protection but also require solutions that are efficient, simple and cost-effective. Asigra helps those contemplating the move to a private, public or hybrid cloud by removing the complexity, cost and time requirements of traditional data protection models.”
