Cybersecurity-Powered Asigra OpEX Backup Appliance Ensures VM Data Recovery
Asigra Inc. announced that the company’s new OpEX Backup Appliance will show for the first time at the 2019 VMworld conference in San Francisco — booth #461. Asigra has partnered with Zadara to develop the new appliance which combines Asigra Cloud Backup V14 software with the Zadara Cloud Storage Platform to deliver enterprise-class backup performance with unprecedented security and scalability.
The Asigra Cloud OpEx Backup Appliance is available exclusively as a consumption-based service. The solution can be deployed on premises, at a colocation facility or in the public cloud and converges data protection and cybersecurity to counter malware attacks on backup data, including ransomware Attack-Loops. The appliance features extensive automation and allows IT and backup administrators to easily and effectively safeguard business data using the solution’s intuitive console that simplifies managed backup, and subscription-based pricing that moderates data protection costs.
At the show, Eran Farajun will present on the new appliance in a recorded podcast hosted by George Crump, Founder and Principal Analyst, Storage Switzerland. In the podcast, titled “Bringing an OpEx Model to the Data Protection Service Provider,” Farajun will discuss the importance of having cybersecurity-enabled backup and the advantages of subscription-based backup infrastructure to better control data protection costs.”
The 2019 conference focuses on today’s rapidly changing IT environment and puts it within reach so that enterprises can accelerate their move to the cloud in support of business objectives. The Asigra/Zadara backup appliance facilitates cloud-forward organizations using a combination of industry-standard hardware, innovative Asigra Cloud Backup software and Zadara’s enterprise storage-as-a-service. The result is a virtualized backup storage repository with both enterprise functionality and cloud convenience.
“The highly available OpEX backup appliance delivers superior scalability, flexibility, data integrity, and a compelling total cost of ownership,” said Eran Farajun, EVP, Asigra. “We look forward to introducing this advanced platform to the cloud/virtualization experts at VMworld as it will change the way enterprises think about backup.”
