Majority of Enterprises Are Ready For Cloud Backup, Survey Reveals

Increasing volumes of data and faster recovery times drive backup modernization

TORONTO – May 31, 2012 - Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup Recovery and Restore (BURR) software provider since 1986,announced the results of its Backup Modernization Survey, which discovered that a majority of enterprises are considering replacing their current backup system with cloud backup. The survey, conducted and validated by an independent research firm, also revealed that enterprises plan to update their current backup systems over the next 18 months, citing the increasing volumes of data to protect and the need for faster recovery times as prime business drivers.

“The survey results validate something that we have seen in the market over the past few years,” said Eran Farajun, EVP, Asigra. “Enterprises, across all industries, are recognizing the value of cloud backup and recovery. As companies have to manage and protect increasingly large amounts of data, the need to recover data quickly after any data loss event is a major motivator to switch to the cloud. Utilizing the cloud for backup and recovery helps enterprises align their backup and recovery needs with their business objectives.”

The survey results also revealed concerns that enterprises have about backup and recovery are split almost evenly across three factors: fast data recovery, secure data protection, affordability and reliability.

“These are common concerns that almost every business has when it comes to backup and recovery,” said Farajun. “That’s why it’s important for enterprises, and all companies looking for backup and recovery, to make sure they make the right choice when selecting a backup solution. Companies need to do an internal assessment and determine what their recovery time objectives are for their data – what data needs to be restored immediately and what data can be restored later without causing too much disruption. They also need to determine what the cost is for recovering both young and old data. It’s a useful exercise that will benefit companies in the long run, especially when they engage with a cloud backup services provider to determine service level agreements that support business continuity.”
