Asigra Backs Up All Data End-to-End Even in the Cloud

It claims the widgetry is the first and only backup solution to back up all enterprise data into a single repository

Asigra, the Toronto-based cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore (BURR) software provider, just unveiled Asigra Cloud Backup v12, a secure, single end-to-end data protection software suite that protects data across physical, virtualized and cloud operating environments.

It claims the widgetry is the first and only backup solution to back up all enterprise data into a single repository - that means physical and virtual environments, everything from servers and storage to desktops and on to endpoint devices - laptops, tablets and smartphones as well as databases, enterprise apps and cloud-based applications.

That means that users can rip out their myriad point solutions, simplifying their environments and their recovery processes.

Asigra says it breaks new ground with SaaS and PaaS cloud app support, industry-leading mobile endpoint support - Android, iOS, Linux, Mac OS, Windows - and anytime/anywhere data recovery across the enterprise.

It can recover call logs, settings, applications, SD card data, calendar, alarm clock settings, music, SMS/MMS communications, bookmarks, photos and videos.

The company says it's the first enterprise cloud backup and recovery software platform to support cloud apps and platforms and virtual disaster recovery for VMware environments without any additional licensing. It's also gussied up its snapshot capabilities.

The widgetry can now protect a complete Salesforce database, including accounts, contacts, leads, campaigns and custom objects. Users can recover just the data or both the schema and data. There's AES 256 encryption in-flight and at rest.

Asigra's got capabilities users can't get from Salesforce like controlling and scheduling backups, encryption and rolling back to a previous point in time.

It can protect Big Data using storage snapshots that comes with a complimentary snapshot manager interface to catalog, configure and manage snapshots.

It protects against virtual machine failures with backup copies of VMs and instant activation of the backup copies. Remote site protection is provided with VM backups to one or more offsite data centers with continued business operations as data is recovered to the primary site.

Asigra has been in the backup and recovery business for 26 years and has 550,000 installations worldwide. It's 100% channel-focused and plays to service providers. It figures it's now given them a bigger addressable market since the widgetry can recover all data regardless of where it lives. It's also talking comprehensive marketing support, up-sell/cross-sell opportunities, zero channel conflict, lower TCO and industry-leading margins.

The hardware- and software-agnostic solution can be deployed as a public, private and hybrid cloud either as enterprise software or leveraged as a backup service through SPs.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
