LDeX Group Partners with Asigra for BaaS Cloud Platform

According to research by IDC, the digital universe is expanding at the phenomenal rate of 40% a year into the next decade. With data doubling in size globally every two years, IDC expects that by 2020, the data created and copied annually will reach 44 trillion gigabytes (44 zetabytes). In this environment, organizations face growing needs to protect their information across physical, virtual, cloud and mobile computing environments.

That’s why the LDeX Group has launched its Backup-as-a-Service platform powered by Asigra’s converged data protection platform! This means our customers can now make use of reliable public vault, private vault or hybrid cloud backup solutions.

Who are Asigra?

Trusted since 1986, Asigra provides organizations around the world the ability to recover their data now from anywhere through a global network of partners who deliver cloud backup and recovery services as public, private and/or hybrid deployments. As the industry’s first enterprise-class agentless cloud-based recovery software to provide data backup and recovery of servers, virtual machines, endpoint devices, databases and applications, SaaS- and IaaS-based applications, Asigra lowers the total cost of ownership, reduces recovery time objectives, eliminates silos of backup data by providing a single consolidated repository, and provides 100 percent recovery assurance.

Asigra

Asigra’s revolutionary patent-pending Recovery License Model provides organizations with a cost-effective data-recovery business model unlike any other offered in the storage market. Asigra has been recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor and has been included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software since 2010.

How does the platform work?

Asigra Cloud Backup™ software is the industry’s leading cloud-based data recovery software with over one million installations worldwide. The software is built for reliable, efficient operation and easily integrates with public, private, and hybrid cloud architectures.

Asigra’s agentless architecture provides for simple, secure deployment and hands-free management while delivering advanced features, including global de-duplication, automated mass deployment, autonomic healing, and validation restore capabilities.

Rob Garbutt, LDeX Group’s CEO, said:

“Asigra was a natural choice of BaaS software which complements our data centre and connectivity customer requirements as well as opening up new markets to us. The proliferation of mobile and cloud-based IT makes it increasingly difficult for our customers to protect and ensure the recovery of important data. Asigra overcomes these challenges.”

Of the service, Eran Farajun, Asigra’s Executive Vice President said:

“With a data protection solution as comprehensive as Asigra Cloud Backup, we can help our partners address the challenges of protecting data whether it resides in the data centre or is born in SaaS-based office productivity suites such as Office 365.”

Followed by:

“We are pleased to welcome LDeX Group to our global partner ecosystem and look forward to collaborating with their team to support the deployment of their Backup-as-a-Service offering across the UK.”
