Asigra, Inc., the technology leader in agentless backup and recovery software for service providers targeting the growing managed storage services market, announced today that Telco Solutions, a 300 employee telecom products manufacturer with multiple U.S. locations, has replaced the use of Veritas-based Backup Exec 10D tape backup and implemented managed backup services by Terian Solutions of Houston, TX to ensure regular and more reliable protection of corporate data.
Previously a user of conventional tape backup, requiring daily management and transport of tapes offsite, this practice had become too cumbersome to continue. Telco Solutions opted for fully automated, remote site backup and recovery services managed by Terian Solutions to protect approximately 428 GB of file and email data. At the company’s Houston location, concerns about data protection and recovery are as real as last year’s hurricane season. A key driver for the selection of Asigra-enabled managed backup was that in the event of a disaster, backup data is stored both onsite using a disk-backup appliance and offsite at Terian’s remote data vault. Should it be necessary, data restoration takes only minutes instead of the hours required to restore tape data back to disk. In the event that the facility is damaged, the backup data can restore to any location selected by Telco Solutions for near-instant data availability.
“We trust Terian Solutions with our valuable data, and expect them to use the best tools they can find to make sure everything is safe and secure,” said Ricky Bajai, MIS Manager of Telco Solutions. “To protect us remotely, Terian’s solution makes it so much easier than deploying and managing tape-based backup procedures offsite."
“Telco came to us to handle the protection of their corporate data,” said Mike Colesante, President of Terian Solutions. “They wanted a fully automated process that used minimal IT resources. Asigra‘s software requires minimal administration and is absolutely a key component of our ability to provide secure, reliable and efficient managed backup.”
Organizations seeking storage infrastructure automation have found it difficult to implement a premises-based remote and branch office data protection platform. With fewer resources at their disposal, IT administrators are challenged with increasing requirements to make the distributed environment more compliant, efficient and safe. Asigra's agentless solution is built from the ground up for service provisioning and provides a hands free approach. Managed service providers offering Asigra-enabled managed backup services are helping organizations reduce their operational and capital expenditures with a time tested solution.
Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President of Asigra, said, “Year after year, events occur that remind us that disasters can and do happen. Companies that understand the importance of backing up their data don’t have to settle for just any backup and recovery service. They need to shop around and find the service that delivers real protection with less pain. When companies like Terian Solutions use Asigra software to meet the needs of their clients, we see that as an affirmation of our core values.”
