Cloud Backup Service Providers Join Asigra at Fourth Annual Cloud Backup Partner Summit in Toronto

 

Hundreds of Cloud Backup Service Providers Participate in Toronto Event for Strategies to Outsmart Competitors in Fast Growing Cloud Backup Market 

TORONTO – June 6, 2011 – Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that leading storage industry analysts will join a host of experts from Asigra and its cloud backup service providers as featured speakers and panelists at the Asigra Cloud Backup Partner Summit, June 7-8 in Toronto. The Asigra Partner Summit, this year entitled OutMarket, OutSell, OutSmart,  is the only conference of its kind where hundreds of cloud backup service providers, MSPs and VARs from all over the world come together to hear the latest in trends and technologies impacting cloud backup. The conference offers a range of strategies to help service providers take a leadership position in one of cloud computing’s largest areas of opportunity – cloud backup.

The market for cloud backup services is approximately $2 billion and growing rapidly, according to analysts. That trend is visible with businesses of every size and in every vertical as these organizations seek comprehensive backup that is more reliable and cost efficient. In fact, a recent study commissioned by Asigra revealed that businesses who will embrace cloud backup will increase dramatically over the next two years. Across all industries, companies are turning to Asigra Cloud Backup™ for its efficiency, security and ease-of-use.

Companies are transitioning to business-class cloud backup because it: 

  • Makes data recovery and restoration accessible from anywhere to anywhere
  • Offers built-in disaster recovery
  • Is highly scalable; there’s no storage limit
  • Automates mass deployment, management and comprehensive data backup

Provides a safe, secure way of backing up data both locally and remotely Asigra was the first to develop cloud backup technology in 1986 by creating a platform that could deliver backup and recovery services over telephone lines. More than 25 years later, the company’s cloud backup platform remains the most efficient, robust and secure solution of its kind. According to Lauren Whitehouse, a senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, Asigra remains “at the forefront of providing the most optimized way to protect data in the cloud.”

Presentations in the summit’s three tracks—OutMarket, OutSell, and OutSmart—are aimed at giving partners the edge they need to rise to the top of an increasingly crowded marketplace. As Forrester analyst Rachel Dines pointed out in a recent article on Bloomberg.com, the growing demand for cloud backup has bred “hundreds of new cloud backup providers, and most of them have popped up in the past couple of years.”

Some of the world’s leading experts in cloud backup will present at this year’s summit. They include Steve Duplessie, Founder and Senior Analyst for the Enterprise Strategy Group, who will present on “Cloud Backup Mobile Marketing Opportunities”; Dave Chapa, Senior Analyst with the Enterprise Strategy Group, who will discuss "Building a Stronger Cloud Backup and Recovery Business;” Richard Fouts, Research Director at Gartner, who will present “Why Marketing Matters: How to Rise Above the Noise”; and Mike Colesante, VP of U.S. Sales, Backup Technology Limited, whose presentation will focus on “Penetration and Retention of Customer Accounts – Sales Tactics and Techniques.”          

Throughout the two-day summit, there will also be open discussions, moderated partner panels and educational lectures. In a presentation titled “Cloud Backup Competitive Positioning,” Marc Staimer, President and CDS, Dragonslayer Consulting will provide competitive analysis and insights of various technologies and alternatives and discuss positioning for winning more sales opportunities. Headlining the agenda, technology leaders that include Intel, NetApp, and Symantec, will deliver presentations and support Hands-on-Lab discussions on joint solutions Powered by Asigra for service providers and VARs.

At this year’s conference, Asigra will again host its innovative Hands-On-Lab, featuring the latest hardware technologies from Intel, NetApp, Symantec and next generation Asigra Cloud Backup software to enable seamless data protection. With a focus of reducing management, backup windows and costs, lab attendees will have the opportunity to “touch the technology” and learn how to optimize backup from the core to the edge, efficiently and profitability. Exercises will include performing live backup, recovery and restoration procedures in private, public and hybrid cloud environments. 

“We host the Partner Summit each year to provide our valued partners with a venue to come together to leverage shared market knowledge to grow their cloud backup business. The Summit fosters a collaborative environment that is structured to maximize learning as well as enable the sharing of ideas. No other event offers such a compelling and eclectic combination of world-class subject matter experts and cutting-edge content all focused on cloud backup,” commented Tracy Staniland, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing at Asigra.

And, from a service provider’s point of view, “the market is heating up, increasing the number of opportunities as well as service providers seeking to capitalize on the market. We need all the ammunition we can get to win the fight,” said Matt Grosso, Executive VP of Data Storage Corporation.

One of the leading cloud computing vendors in Canada according to IDC, Asigra is a global software provider and the only Canadian software vendor included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Disk-Based Backup/Recovery[1]. The rapidly growing company boasts over 400,000 global customer sites installed with all customer deployments supported by hundreds of Asigra service providers, including Verizon/Terremark, HP Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Services, CDW, Bell Canada and hundreds of others. The annual Asigra Cloud Backup Summit brings together hundreds of these world-class leading service providers to the Toronto area for its 2-day event focused on thought leadership, go-to-market strategies, product training and market education.

Metalogix A Featured Presenter in InformationWeek Webinar Exploring How to Use SharePoint Online in a Hybrid Cloud Environment

Online Event on June 7, 2011 Shares How a Governance Plan with Supporting Tools Can Effectively Manage “SharePoint Sprawl”

WASHINGTON, DC  June 3, 2011 – Metalogix Software, the leading provider in content lifecycle management (CLM) solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange®, and legacy environments, today announced that it will be co-presenting an InformationWeek webinar that will explore best practices on how to use SharePoint online in a hybrid cloud environment. The webinar, titled “Utilizing SharePoint Online in a Hybrid Cloud Environment,” will take place on June 7, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Stephen Cawood, Microsoft SharePoint MVP and director of product marketing for Metalogix will be presenting. 

“SharePoint Online and the pending release of Office 365 gives organizations a flexible choice in how they manage their SharePoint infrastructure on-premise, in a private cloud or a hybrid scenario,” said Stephen Cawood,  director of product marketing, Metalogix. “Many organizations are using SharePoint as a document management platform, but SharePoint Online adds additional value as an affordable hosted option.”

The online event will offer best practices for managing a hybrid SharePoint environment and showcase how other companies can use SharePoint Online for document and application management. It will also outline how a governance plan with supporting tools can effectively manage “SharePoint sprawl.”

Many organizations are discovering the value of hybrid SharePoint cloud scenarios by synching their Microsoft SharePoint servers with Microsoft Office 365 or BPOS, seeing powerful flexibility and high availability for their valued enterprise content. But, to make the most of any adoption of Microsoft Online Services planning, migration and on-going cloud management must be performed in a holistic way. Metalogix is the only migration vendor approved by Microsoft for use with Office 365 or BPOS dedicated servers.

Enterprises Prepare to Migrate as Technology Refreshes Escalate in 2011

Jersey City, N.J. — March 8, 2011 — Paving the path to the next generation data center with technology led solutions, SANpulse Technologies, Inc. today highlighted the increasing number of technology refresh and data center consolidation initiatives forecast for 2011 as the economy improves and companies look to align IT with business requirements.

According to The Wall Street Journal, “Consumer and business spending is expected to spur the expanding U.S. economy in 2011 with a newly resilient economy poised to expand at its fastest pace since 2003. Even the most bearish of economists on Wall Street are now becoming the most bullish on growth.” 

Additional insight by Gartner1 shows spending levels, as measured by infrastructure and operations (I&O) budgets, are gradually improving. According to a recent Gartner conference survey, “The most recent results reflect the gradual economic improvement, as 42% anticipated budgetary growth in the coming year, while only 25% expected spending to contract.” 

While many organizations are planning technology refreshes to increase business agility after years of flat spending, others are architecting more efficient data centers designed to reduce the high operational costs of legacy architecture. With storage environments a significant part of any technology migration process, it is critical these operations be planned and executed with the support of technology led solutions that leverage skillful people and production-proven processes. 

One of the largest and among the most common challenges of a technology refresh or consolidation is ensuring that the organization maintains optimal productivity levels. This requires a deep understanding of the current environment, the efficient capturing of complex system dependencies, and precise execution from start to finish. Choosing a technology partner that simplifies the entire process of a data migration to enable a fast and efficient technology refresh, can significantly reduce the risk of these operations. An expert in storage migrations, SANpulse offers an automated comprehensive solution that supports the migration or consolidation on several enterprise storage platforms, including those from EMC, IBM, HP and Hitachi Data Systems. Leveraging automation accelerates the adoption of advanced technologies to support a more agile and efficient infrastructure. 

“To get the full benefits of an agile data center, organizations need to automate common tasks, such as server provisioning, network configuration and storage management,” said Mike Chuba, Research Vice President, Gartner. “The end goal is to support effective application deployment, management and monitoring, to meet the needs of the business while controlling costs.” 

SANpulse provides a high level of automation and intelligence to reduce the risk of complex storage migrations with the company’s technology-led solution called SANlogics™, an innovative, multi-vendor software platform that automates and accelerates storage migrations. The solution allows large enterprise organizations to upgrade and optimize their IT storage infrastructures in a fraction of the time required by traditional means and at greatly reduced cost and risk of downtime. These advantages result in both OpEx and CapEx savings that accelerate the ROI on existing investments while reducing the total cost of ownership. 

“As the economic climate improves, enterprises are accelerating their spend on new technologies and infrastructure that they have been avoiding for several years due to budget constraints,” said Peter Mehta, CEO of SANpulse. “Leveraging SANlogics, we are able to ensure timely delivery of large and complex initiatives within budget, while in parallel incorporating best practices and mitigating risk.”

SMB Audit Highlights High-Growth Cloud Backup Market

IT User Respondents to Survey Reveal Surge in Cloud Backup Adoption of 660% over Next Two Years 

TORONTO – March 8, 2011 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup and recovery software provider since 1986, today announced the findings of a commissioned study[1], "The High-Growth Managed Backup Services Market," conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Asigra. The results reveal the areas of growth among small and medium businesses, how channel partners are responding to increased demand from this market segment and what IT decision makers expect from channel partners. Based on a February 2011 survey of U.S. IT decision makers, the study also leverages the Forrester/OCE Global Channel Companies’ Cloud Business Models survey.[2]

While both large and small companies are investing aggressively in cloud backup and recovery solutions, in the next two years the greatest growth in cloud-based managed services will come from SMBs. Today 5 percent of SMBs surveyed employ backup-as-a-service, remote backup or online backup services from a managed service provider and 38 percent plan to employ them in two years – a growth rate of 660 percent.

Market Driven by Multiple Needs

Three factors contribute to this anticipated growth; SMBs view their computer systems and data as invaluable assets, they realize employees avoid performing their own backups, and they want to free IT resources to focus on growth and core competencies. Drivers for selecting a cloud-based service include lower costs (68 percent of respondents), the physical security of the provider's infrastructure and data centers (48 percent), and service/support availability (38 percent). 

Channel partners are responding to this demand by ramping up their offerings. Today, more than 25 percent offer cloud-based services and another 30 percent plan to do so. These companies are particularly interested in investing in the remote management of PCs, servers or network infrastructure (81 percent); storage and backup services (77 percent); data center services (68 percent); and remote backup/disaster recovery (64 percent). 

In addition, the great majority of channel partners are ready to resell SaaS or other cloud-based products. Currently 29 percent resell them, while 16 percent plan to offer them in the next 12 months and 16 percent in a year or more. Only 8 percent are not interested in this market. 

Marketing to Customers' Value Points

To grow a successful managed services business, channel partners must be aware of customers' expectations of them and of their vendor partners. Overall experience in implementing the solution was very important to 58 percent of decision makers considering VARs. Both solutions experience and support SLA (e.g., helpdesk response time, on-site support) were very important to 47 percent of the respondents. The survey found that SMBs considering VARs gave particularly high consideration to the level of support because they now see their data as mission critical. Respondents considering MSPs, however, had somewhat different priorities. To 60 percent SLA support was very important, 51 percent said solution experience was very important and customer references were very important to 38 percent. 

Asked what they value most from their vendor partners, 48 percent of respondents said protecting their territory from other channel partners, 45 percent said financing some of the cost of the hosting infrastructure, and 34 percent said business-model training for moving to hosting.     

"We believe this survey paints a clear picture not just of the types of cloud services businesses plan to employ but also of what they expect from their VARs and MSPs," said Eran Farajun, EVP, Asigra. "Every participant in this rapidly expanding market can use this information to hone their go-to-market strategy and shape their offerings in response to the needs and values of their customers."

Actifio Eliminates Backup and Restore Windows with a Single Solution for Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity at up to 90% Lower Cost  

WALTHAM, Mass.  – Actifio™, the leader in Data Management Virtualization (DMV), today announced that it is a featured presenter at the VMware User Group Rhode Island (VMUG) event on March 3, 2011 at the Newport Marriott in Newport, R.I. During the event, Actifio will present “Introduction to Data Management Virtualization – Data Management for Any IT” at 1:40 p.m., 2:40 p.m. and 3:40 p.m., where it will showcase the industry’s first DMV solution and how it drives down the overall costs by up to 90% for data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity in virtual or physical IT environments.

Data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity are business critical initiatives, traditionally addressed by a complex, expensive and inflexible infrastructure made up of multiple point tools independently copying, storing, moving and restoring copies of duplicated, redundant data. Each of these point tools provides only part of the solution needed to manage the lifecycle of business data and the resulting cost of managing up to 120 copies of data ends up three times that of managing primary data. 

The Actifio Difference: Single Solution for Data Protection, DR and Business Continuity

Actifio delivers the next-generation solution for data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity in virtual and physical IT environments.  At the core of Actifio’s DMV solution is the Virtual Data PipelineTM file system, a platform that makes a single copy of production data that stores and moves it efficiently and repurposes this single copy for multiple business requirements. The result is a radically simple, single solution for data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity with instant backup, instant restore and deduplication that delivers up to 95% lower storage footprint, 70% lower network utilization and reduces TCO by up to 90%.  

“Current practice has been to deploy a new data management application for each business requirement to protect, share or analyze data for regulatory compliance,” said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. “Each of these multiple point tools is independently copying, storing, moving and restoring copies of duplicated redundant data.  Despite the rapid growth in production data size and the emergence of virtual and cloud IT infrastructure, tools for backup, disaster recovery and business continuity are based on architectures that are decades old. Consequently, IT organizations struggle with backup and restore windows, inefficient use of storage, network and server resources and the complexity and inflexibility of these operations.  It’s time to virtualize the management of data and radically simplify data management into a single solution that removes the complexity and drastically reduces the cost.”   

During VMUG Rhode Island, Actifio will share how its DMV solution is eliminating data vulnerabilities – in virtual, physical or cloud IT infrastructures – and enabling high business availability for its customers.

Gridstore Recognized as a "Top Ten Storage Startup" by InfoStor

Company Recognized for Technology Innovation for Scale-out NAS Solutions for the Midmarket

Mountain View, CA. – February 22, 2011 – Gridstore™, the leader in scale-out NAS solutions for the SMB market, today announced that InfoStor has named it to its list of "Top Ten Storage Startups." InfoStor Editor-in-Chief Dave Simpson selected the list from startups that launched or shipped their first products during 2010 and factored technology innovation, company management and funding into his decisions. 

Scale-Out NAS Offers Simplicity, Performance and Reliability of Enterprise-Class Storage for SMB 

Gridstore’s scale-out NAS solution combines the simplicity, convenience and affordability of NAS with the scalability, performance and reliability of enterprise-class storage. As a result, managed service providers and small to medium sized businesses can achieve a powerful NAS storage grid that eliminates storage sprawl and multiple single points of failure while benefiting from a next-generation storage offering at 1/3 the cost of standalone NAS solutions.  The Gridstore NASg storage platform is designed to eliminate the risk, cost and complexity of traditional siloed storage solutions. Gridstore NASg aggregates the processing power of client systems and performs complex parallel storage processes on existing NAS resources while assuring the reliability required for today’s 24x7 business operations. 

Key benefits of Gridstore NASg include:

  • Unlimited Storage Capacity – NASg virtualizes any number of existing NAS or NASg storage nodes into a single pool of storage. This eliminates the cost and risk of storage sprawl for customers while optimizing existing NAS resources and allows capacity to grow incrementally using low cost NASg storage nodes like building blocks.
  • Unlimited Network Bandwidth NASg eliminates server network bottlenecks by utilizing parallel IO to the storage nodes. Every storage node adds 1 Gb/s of parallel network bandwidth. As the number of storage nodes increases, each storage node performs less work and the parallel data path to the Gridstore NASg increases.
  • Unlimited Processing Capacity – NASg uniquely harness the processing power across a grid of client machines to eliminate server-based processing bottlenecks. As more clients are added to the NASg, more parallel processing power is also added to the grid so processing constraints are never experienced.
  • Unlimited Reliability – By harnessing the parallel processing and IO of a grid, NASg stripes data across many storage nodes so that there is no single point of failure. Any pre-configured number of storage nodes can fail without data loss or downtime. Failed storage nodes are simply replaced with another low cost NASg storage node by attaching one to the network.
  • New Storage Economics – The unique NASg platform aggregates processing power and network bandwidth to spread the workload across a grid of storage nodes. This allows both existing storage resources and low cost NASg storage nodes to be utilized and drastically changes the economics of storage for customers.

“Today managed service providers and small to mid-sized organizations are filled with multiple islands of NAS devices that are complex, costly and do not scale to meet the demands of unstructured data that makes up an average of 75 percent of the information being managed,” said Kelly Murphy, CEO, Gridstore. “As a result IT administrators have been left with an expensive, confusing mire of distributed NAS islands that add cost, complexity and risk at every step. Gridstore’s scale-out NAS solution was purpose built to solve the NAS dilemma with a scale-out NAS solution that is radically simple and lowers the cost by up to 1/3 over traditional NAS offerings.”

Actifio Named One of "Top Ten Storage Startups" by InfoStor

 

Company Recognized for Technology Innovation that Delivers Single Solution for Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity 

WALTHAM, Mass. – February 15, 2011 – Actifio™, the leader in Data Management Virtualization (DMV), today announced that InfoStor has named it to its list of "Top Ten Storage Startups." InfoStor Editor-in-Chief Dave Simpson selected the list from startups that launched or shipped their first products during 2010 and factored technology innovation, company management and funding into his decisions.

Shortly after Actifio introduced its groundbreaking Data Management Virtualization software suite, Simpson noted in a July 21, 2010 blog post that “Some storage startups anticipate a trend then ride the coattails of the trend. Other startups actually create trends.  One startup that may be in the latter category is Actifio.” 

Industry’s First, Single Solution for Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

Data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity are business critical initiatives traditionally addressed by complex, expensive and inflexible infrastructure made up of multiple point tools. Each of these tools independently copy, store, move, and restore duplicated, redundant data. Organizations end up with typically close to120 duplicate copies and spend 3-5X more on making and managing these duplicate copies than the original production data. At the same time, rapid growth in data size is leaving critical business assets vulnerable to loss due to backup, restore and replication windows. 

Actifio has changed the way organizations manage this convoluted process by ushering in Data Management Virtualization. DMV works with an organization’s existing infrastructure and virtualizes the management of independent, duplicate copies of data into one platform eliminating redundancies and repurposes the unique data for different data management applications. The result is a single, application-centric, SLA-driven solution for data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity for virtual, physical or Cloud IT environments that reduces the data protection storage footprint by 95%, lowers storage acquisition cost/GB by 50% and reduces network utilization up to 70%.

“Today’s data center is filled with multiple point tools from multiple vendors to handle multiple data protections tasks such as backup, snapshot, and disaster recovery - a situation that results in multiple copies of redundant data,” said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. “As a result IT administrators have been left with an expensive, confusing mire of data protection applications, multiple SLAs and data proliferation that adds complexity at every step. With a purpose-built data management virtualization solution leveraging the existing infrastructure, Actifio repurposes a single unique copy of data for multiple applications, transforming data management into an efficient, service-oriented operation that is radically simple and lowers the cost by up to 90%.”
