Opus Trust Group Selects Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance to Simplify Enterprise Data Protection

Project Vision Implements End-to-End Cloud-Based Data Recovery Services by OnDemand Recovery, Powered by Asigra Software

TORONTO – September 25, 2013 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced that Opus Trust Ltd. has implemented the Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance after its backup infrastructure increased in size and complexity. The company chose its IT service provider, Project Vision, to deploy the new solution in order to simplify its backup environment and extend data protection capabilities across all of its systems, applications and networks.

Opus Trust Group Ltd. was founded in 1999, and through its subsidiaries, engages in direct marketing, information technology, and the distribution of wine products. For years, the company had protected its IT systems with cloud backup technology but as its business grew and more complex systems and enterprise applications were introduced to the network, the previous solution was incapable of protecting those new environments which put its data at risk. Rather than adding a mix of backup solutions to protect virtual servers and various applications, the company sought a simple approach which was available through Project Vision and OnDemand Recovery.

OnDemand Recovery provided Opus Trust Group Ltd with Asigra-based technology for its ability to unify the company’s backup environment under a single platform. Key among the provided capabilities was the ability to protect all of the company’s 4.8TB of data stored across physical and virtual computing systems while providing virtual machine disaster recovery both locally and from an offsite cloud-based service in the event of a data disaster. The resulting deployment consisted of an Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance for local Virtual Disaster Recovery (VDR) based on the Cisco 2921 ISR GS router and public cloud backup services managed by OnDemand Recovery.

“Our network had become increasingly complex as storage volumes grew and our previous backup solution struggled to keep pace,” said Simon Johnson, Finance Director for Opus Trust Group Ltd. “By implementing the Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance we simplified the infrastructure and improved the levels of data protection and recovery across all of our network and applications. We now have local backup to disk, automated offsite backup and a complete IT DR plan through the OnDemand Recovery service from Project Vision.”

The Asigra solution is delivered as a service by UK-based OnDemand Recovery. OnDemand Recovery’s cloud backup services have been architected to remove the IT management time and hardware, software and service-related costs of alternative solutions. The fully automated service is supported by an experienced team that actively monitors all backup activities daily to check and double-check backup and recovery logs for failures, errors and overall success.

“By working closely with Project Vision we have been able to realize the benefits of the Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance for Opus Trust Group,” said Mark Saville, Managing Director, OnDemand Recovery. “Avoiding the need to add or re-use a discrete server for backup simplifies the network without placing any further load on the router. The solution works very well as you would expect from the companies behind it. Anything that makes backup and recovery simple and more reliable is a good thing for our clients.”

With the enhanced backup solution, Opus Trust Group has achieved peace of mind through greater efficiency and flexibility in the way the service is delivered and billed to reflect the current data protection needs. IT simplicity was furthered using the Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance which serves as both an internet router and local backup server, thereby consolidating two devices into one. Additionally, by taking VMware images offsite as part of the cloud backup service, the customer has been able to subscribe to the VM cloud recovery service provided by OnDemand Recovery to support and meet the company’s IT DR objectives.

Key benefits of the Asigra software solution for Opus Trust Group Ltd. include:

• End-to-end protection of data across all systems, software and physical/virtual computing platforms.

• Simple to manage single interface for all data protection activities.

• Ability to recover data locally using the Asigra Cloud Connector Appliance or remotely from OnDemand Recovery.

• Flexibility in how the solution can be deployed to scale up or down depending upon the environment.

• Assurance in knowing data is secure with OnDemand Recovery’s IT DR plan coupled with the Asigra VDR solution.

“The benefits of the Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance have been proven in installations around the world and the solution’s deployment takes hybrid cloud backup to the next level,” said Tracy Staniland, VP, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “The added convenience, simplicity and assurance that data can be recovered either locally or remotely is a real advantage for organizations whose backup systems are challenged by diverse operating environments and stringent recovery requirements.”


The Asigra Cloud Backup Connector Appliance (Cisco 2921 Integrated Services Router pre-installed with Asigra Cloud Backup software) is available immediately and customers can purchase the bundled solution from authorized Cisco channel partners or Asigra Hybrid Partners.
