TORONTO – August 8, 2013 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, ranks among the world’s Top 100 cloud computing companies, according to Nine Lives Media’s third-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. The Top 100 cloud computing vendors generated more than $15.7 billion in combined revenues in 2012, up nearly 37 percent, according to the report, which is available now by visiting http://www.talkincloud.com/tc100.

In addition to honoring Asigra, this year’s Talkin’ Cloud 100 report profiles:

  • Cloud Services Providers: CSPs offer SaaS (software as a service), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and/or PaaS (platform as a service) to partners/customers.
  • Cloud Services Brokerages: CSBs, or cloud brokers, recommend and resell multiple cloud services to customers, and often integrate those services.
  • Cloud Services Aggregators: CSAs, or cloud aggregators, typically offer a portal that allows VARs and MSPs to source multiple third-party cloud services for customers.
  • MSPs (Managed Service Providers) with cloud services expertise: MSPs proactively monitor and manage customers’ on-premises and cloud-based systems.
  • VARs (value-added resellers) with cloud services expertise: VARs offer a range of IT consulting, deployment, integration and management services to customers.

“An enhanced partner program with a 100% service provider focus and excellent training regimen has accelerated Asigra’s traction with partners in the delivery of our cloud-based data recovery software. When combined with Asigra’s innovative Recovery License Model (RLM) and award winning technology, we hold a very compelling position with service providers,” said Tracy Staniland, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “We believe this recognition by Nine Lives Media and the Talkin’ Cloud 100 report embodies the value we provide to our partners.”

The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through May 2013. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report recognizes top cloud computing vendors based on such metrics as annual revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates).
