About Asigra Cloud Backup v10
Asigra's agentless design works with any virtual machine architecture and is better suited for virtual backup than agent-based solutions, thus eliminating application disruption or downtime during implementation or upgrades. The Asigra solution also eliminates security risks cased by open ports in the firewall and wastes no server resources on agent software. Autonomic healing and recovery validation functions constantly monitor and repair backup files, eliminating data corruption as a serious issue. Asigra Cloud Backup also offers enterprises backup and storage efficiencies unavailable with traditional backup architectures by allowing users to capture, ingest, and store less data. These efficiencies reduce the amount of backup software cycles and storage hardware required to deploy and maintain high levels of data protection.
