Asigra and BlueArc Broaden Strategic Relationship to Deliver High-Performance Backup and Recovery Infrastructure

(July 07, 2009)
DMN Newswire--2009-7-7--Asigra Inc., the leading cloud backup and recovery software provider, today announced that the Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup? and Recovery platform supports BlueArcs new Mercury Series Network Storage System as a premier hardware platform for enhanced backup and recovery. When combined with Asigra, BlueArcs Mercury Series delivers enterprise-class scalability and performance in a mid-range solution that overcomes the challenges faced today by an ever-increasing number of end users and cloud backup service providers.

IT operation requirements to reduce capital and operational costs while meeting demands to do more with less are necessitating more powerful solutions without additional expense. Asigras cloud backup and recovery software directly addresses cost concerns with an architecture that reduces I/O, memory and management overhead that is a fundamental trait of traditional data protection offerings. With BlueArcs Mercury Series storage servers deployed in conjunction with Asigra, users are provided a comprehensive enterprise-class backup and recovery solution that transforms data protection to significantly lower resource requirements and allow for focus on more strategic IT initiatives than backup.

Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery software version 9 integrates smoothly with BlueArcs Mercury Series to extend the value of both platforms. For customers employing virtualization schemes to reduce their data center footprint, Mercurys performance ensures that consolidated applications continue to run at peak speeds while Asigras agentless deployment runs without draining processing power or memory during backup and recovery operations. With Asigras near infinite scalability, BlueArc Mercury Series is the perfect complement to managing growing data volumes without excessive management resources. The combined offering also lowers administrative time and costs for protecting information within virtualized datacenter environments.

Today, organizations seek faster, higher capacity and more efficient storage to cope with the imposing demands of their hard working IT infrastructures, said Bridget Warwick, vice president of marketing at BlueArc. BlueArcs Mercury Series serves as the great equalizer in mitigating the impact of information overload and is a powerful hardware platform for driving the industrys most popular applications, as is the case with the Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery offering.
