SNIA Webinar to Highlight Cloud Backup & Restore Special Interest Group

Creation of New Cloud BUR Group Recognizes Significance of Backup as a Core Cloud Storage Application

Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™ and recovery software provider since 1986, today announced that the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) will host a webinar on July 22, 2010, to introduce the new Cloud Backup and Restore (Cloud BUR) Special Interest Group.

The Cloud BUR SIG is a project of SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative that promotes the adoption of cloud storage as a new delivery model that provides elastic, on-demand storage billed only for what is used. The webinar will cover details about the new Cloud Backup and Restore project as well as address the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative (CSI) education and collaboration activities for end users, the channel, and vendors at the SNIA Symposium, SNIA Storage Developers Conference and CloudBurst, Storage Networking World (SNW) USA, and SNW Europe.

“Backup has emerged as a leading cloud storage application so it’s appropriate that SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative would embrace backup to the cloud with a targeted special interest group,” said Val Bercovici, SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative and Cloud Czar, NetApp Office of the CTO. “This webinar is a great opportunity to learn about the new Cloud Backup and Restore project as well get up to date on the full range of activities and technical achievements generated by SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative.”

Asigra has been a leader in helping businesses move from the excessive cost and complexities of traditional backup approaches to next-generation cloud backup technology. The Asigra Cloud Backup platform is a transformational backup architecture optimized for cloud computing and designed to offer backup and storage efficiencies unavailable with traditional backup architectures by allowing users to capture less, ingest less, and store less data. This reduces the amount of backup software cycles and storage hardware required to deploy and maintain high levels of data protection. Asigra’s latest generation software, Cloud Backup v10, aligns user recovery times with business requirements, reduces operational costs and provides organizations with data protection to meet dynamic IT requirements.
