Apr 6, 2011

Mezeo Software (www.mezeo.com), the leading provider of a deployable cloud storage platform, today announced Asigra (www.asigra.com), a leading provider of cloud backup solutions, as a Mezeo Ready Solution Partner. The Mezeo and Asigra integrated solution provides a feature-rich, low cost backup solution for IT service providers focused on data protection, IT constrained organizations, and industries with compliance mandates that are looking to improve their backup with a secure, reliable and predictable cloud-based data protection model.

According to IDC, large companies are increasingly looking to cloud storage for economic reasons, to protect data at branch offices and tiered storage.  IDC reports that 14 percent of very large firms with greater than 10,000 employees are investigating public cloud-based backup and 26 percent are evaluating in an RFP.   (Source: IDC, 2010). 

“Cloud and backup are a logical fit,” said Steve Lesem, Mezeo President and CEO.  “The cloud offers a secure and reliable way for organizations to reduce the cost of backing up their data.  We are excited to go to market with Asigra, who has been an impressive player in the backup market for over 25 years and is noted in the most recent Gartner Magic Quadrant on Enterprise Disk-Based Backup.* Our integrated technologies provide a service-enabled cloud backup solution that helps our Mezeo Ready service providers seamlessly and efficiently manage, scale and deliver data protection services to their end customers.”

“As data growth continues unabated and companies need to protect data in remote office, laptop and virtualized environments, cloud backup is quickly becoming a very appealing data protection option for many IT organizations,” said Asigra CEO David Farajun.  “The Asigra and Mezeo technologies are a logical fit, as they are both built to address the very specific needs of service providers.  Together, we offer an affordable, secure backup solution that streamlines data recovery without the cost or complexity of traditional technologies.”

The Mezeo Ready Program provides an ecosystem for service providers, developers, cloud gateway providers and technology partners to rapidly demonstrate their value and operability with providers of Mezeo-based cloud storage.

Both Mezeo and Asigra will be showcasing their solutions in the SNIA Cloud Pavilion at SNW 2011, in kiosks CP5 and CP8, respectively.  SNW runs April 4th through April 7th in Santa Clara, California.
