The Asigra Approach


Key influencers and analysts continue to notice and acknowledge our presence and leadership in cloud backup and recovery. Here’s a glimpse of what some of them have to say about us.

The channel is increasingly moving toward the cloud, adding solutions in key areas of their service portfolios. Solution providers that have not yet made cloud storage a part of their practice risk being left behind. The past 12 months have seen Asigra advance cloud data protection for Office 365 and introduce what it calls the first enterprise backup and recovery solution to support Docker containers. Also new was a big push for cloud-to-cloud backups in Microsoft and VMware environments.

Asigra has been innovating since before backup as a service was even a term or the cloud was a trusted commodity, so it shouldn't surprise folks to see them continue to seek out how customers' data protection needs are changing.

Version 13 of the Asigra Inc. Cloud Backup product added backup for data created in the cloud. Asigra Cloud Backup scored highest among the category finalists for innovation and ease of integration, and also received high marks for functionality and value. Its agentless architecture was designed for the cloud, even before cloud was a buzzword. And the addition of protection for Salesforce, Google Apps and Office 365 to the product is an industry first. The update is innovative in that it makes Asigra's already full-function product more full function.

Servers, CPUs, storage arrays and networking equipment have all gone through so-called "converged" stages—meaning more functionality is being crammed into smaller and smaller hardware form factors. So it follows that somebody would come up with converged functions in software. Toronto-based cloud backup provider Asigra is doing just that with version 13 of its platform, launched Feb. 10. The new version adds a full Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) enablement that features snapshot VMware vSphere replication along with endpoint data loss prevention.

Backup Review has revealed its top 25 online backup enablers list for February 2015, ranking Asigra at number one. Based in Toronto, Canada, Asigra describes itself as a company that is devoted to furthering cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore (BURR) by offering its cloud solutions entirely through its Partner ecosystem. David Farajun, the CEO of the company does not hesitate to declare that Asigra's success is defined by the success of its partners.

Simplifying data protection activities while actually improving service levels is a real priority for IT organizations. Asigra’s converged data protection aims to make life simpler for IT staff by reducing the complexity of managing multiple backup, DR and archiving solutions. In addition, their recovery-based pricing and deployment alternatives can help make the acquisition cost more budget friendly.

Service providers are experiencing hyper-scale growth that requires them to continuously add and manage storage. Smaller partners want to buy backup appliances directly from Asigra, while those on the higher end [are] looking for a better care cost structure. What Asigra did was package a robust, industry-standard open source ZFS stack that reduces the back-end storage for their customers by about one-third to one-half. That's a big deal, because it means service providers can pass on those savings to their customers.

Asigra, a Toronto-based maker of data protection software, is offering its data backup prowess to cloud storage providers in the form of an all-in-one appliance. The Asigra Converged Data Protection DS-System Appliance, which "enables the service provider to plug in a turnkey box and have the service up and running in minutes.

Managed and cloud service providers have a lightning fast on-ramp to providing backup services via three Asigra appliances. These are converged backup systems using commodity servers, FreeBSD Unix, the ZFS file system and Asigra's agentless cloud backup and recovery software.

The Cloud to Cloud Backup feature protects data created in the cloud using popular software as a service (SaaS) applications. It was first added to the agentless Asigra Cloud Backup software platform in 2012, when the company announced the ability to back up Salesforce.com data. Asigra has since added the ability to protect Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365 data. Backup data from these applications can be integrated and managed with the rest of an organization's data, and stored on the premises or in an Asigra partner's cloud..

vSphere APIs for IO Filtering will enable ecosystem partners including Asigra, EMC, Infinio, PrimaryIO, Samsung, SanDisk and StorageCraft to offer third-party, software-based data services such as replication and caching. These data services will be fully integrated in vSphere and managed through vSphere Storage Policy-Based Management.

Asigra Cloud Backup offers disk-based, block-level, incremental client-side deduplication to reduce backup bandwidth needs. It also uses an agentless architecture. According to the company, this simplifies deployment, which can be useful when deploying the software to protect multiple remote sites.
