TORONTO – February 1, 2011 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup and recovery software provider since 1986, today announced that company executive and chairman of the SNIA Backup and Recovery Special Interest Group (SIG), Ashar Baig, participated in the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Winter Symposium to collaborate on the SIG’s educational agenda for 2011. The SNIA leads the industry in developing and promoting standards, technologies, and educational services to empower organizations in the management of information. The Winter Symposium, which offers networking, working group meetings, informative keynote sessions, and other unique programs, was held in San Jose, California this past week.
Baig, a leading advocate of cloud backup and recovery, is targeting key industry organizations, venues and events to educate IT professionals on this innovative approach to data protection. For example, a recent BrightTalk presentation by Baig focused on industry requirements and trends driving the adoption of cloud backup by businesses globally. Other educational events under Baig’s direction include end user and market focused presentations, podcasts and panel discussions at various industry events centered on the topic of cloud backup. These presentations will continue to be delivered throughout 2011 and highlight Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore (BURR) end user requirements, typical end user concerns, challenges facing current and future BURR users, how Cloud BURR addresses those problems and the benefits Cloud BURR brings to cloud service providers.
"As enterprises start moving backup, recovery and restore to the cloud, it's important that they understand the issues associated with implementing conventional BURR, including how manually intensive it is and its escalating costs," said Baig. "Cloud BURR not only resolves many of these issues but also can significantly improve IT performance, human productivity and costs."
