Choosing the best backup appliance for your organization’s backup operations can be challenging. It’s important to consider the impact it could have on your organization’s productivity and bottom-line when deployed.

With Asigra, MSPs have two options when it comes to procuring new backup appliances. You can either obtain new capabilities and equipment as a capital expense (CapEx), or you can obtain them as an operating expense (OpEx).
