Asigra Showcases Recovery Based Pricing for Backup Software at VMworld 2013

Aug 26, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO – August 26, 2013 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced the first public presentation of the company’s recently announced Recovery License Model (RLM) for cloud-based backup. At VMworld 2013 in San Francisco, Asigra will highlight the new pricing model as well as its latest generation technology, including Google Apps cloud-to-cloud backup. Demonstrations as well as the opportunity to test drive the RLM Calculator will take place in booth #2335 during the event.

Enterprises and IT service providers today are focused on high value solutions that provide competitive advantages in their respective markets. During VMworld 2013, Asigra will profile recovery-based pricing which gives IT professionals the ability to take control of backup and recovery costs, even as organizational data volumes grow. With the Asigra Recovery License Model, fees are based on the volume of data recovered over a 12-month period (every 6 months in the first year). A waiver is provided for the single largest recovery event in any licensing term and only successful recoveries are included in the calculations. Service providers and end-users of this model can anticipate immediate savings of 40% and long term savings of 60% to 70% as a result of separating backup and recovery license costs.

The newest version of Asigra Cloud Backup (v12.2) will also be presented on the show floor. With the latest software, users can automatically protect Google Apps data at all times to ensure data access. By ensuring Google Apps data recovery, companies maintain access to important business information in this increasingly popular business application. All email, calendars, contacts, documents, and site-based data is recoverable in the event of data loss. In terms of features, users can schedule the backup activities for Google Apps, select the number of backup sets, establish retention rules and even decide different backup frequencies for different sets of data. Version 12.2 ensures that Google Apps-based user data is no longer outside of corporate control.
