Datastring Founders Establish Cloud Backup Company through Asigra Partnership

Read the Press Release

Meet the people behind the UK and Ireland’s most exciting, up-and-coming cloud backup provider – Datastring. Jon Thordarson, CEO and Steinthor Kristinsson, CTO are highly experienced IT infrastructure engineers who have protected customer data using Asigra since 2004 at Securstore (later KeepItSafe), an award-winning Asigra Partner.

A couple of years after their former company was acquired, Jon and Steinthor decided to strike it out on their own. They formed Datastring with an eye for the growing market of organizations who need to protect their SaaS and IaaS data.

Datastring needed a robust platform that supported today’s growing diversity of data sources – from traditional to cloud data protection. Asigra was a tried-and-true solution from the founders’ perspective and the logical choice they immediately considered.

Asigra is proud to announce that we have earned Jon and Steinthor’s trust as the platform powering Datastring’s cloud backup services. Their decision to build their business as an Asigra Partner is a huge vote of confidence, from a team who has over 12 years of experience using our solution. They were impressed by how our software has evolved over the years, growing in functionality to cover Office 365, Salesforce, Google Apps, Azure, AWS backup, replication and virtual machine disaster recovery.

We are confident that Datastring will accelerate their growth with Asigra Cloud Backup, given the promising response from their customer base. Joseph Morsi, Lead Infrastructure Engineer at Digiterre noted “The Datastring solution meets all of our business requirements. Their proven industry knowledge, experience and reputation was crucial in our decision.”

Any organization seeking a trusted advisor to assist with Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) projects should certainly consider contacting Datastring. All of their engineers have hands-on experience as network administrators, preparing them to tackle your most complex data protection requirements.
