Axcient Launches Next Gen Platform to Provide Instant Cloud Recovery of Data, Applications, and Systems
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Axcient, the leading provider of cloud-based data and application protection and uptime solutions for the Small and Mid-Sized Business (SMB) market today announced significant advances in its cloud-based business continuity capabilities. Axcient Cloud Continuity ends downtime for SMBs by enabling businesses to launch a virtual office in the cloud when primary systems go down. This ensures that no matter what happens, employees can continue working on their data and use their applications from any device at any location.
Today’s advancements make failing over systems to the Axcient platform instantaneous, delivering businesses their critical applications and data with only the time it takes a server to reboot. And because Axcient believes in bringing a consumer approach to enterprise IT, the next generation of Cloud Continuity includes additional intelligence and automation so that setup can be done with just a couple of clicks.
“Traditional backup is an antiquated way of viewing the problem that SMBs face. SMBs want to ensure they never lose data, that they can access information from any device at any time, and that their critical systems and applications are always up and running, ensuring uninterrupted employee productivity,” said Justin Moore, CEO of Axcient. “With this latest release of Cloud Continuity we not only ensure that SMBs can launch their critical servers and infrastructure in the cloud easily, we’ve made it so that they can do it instantly.”
The latest release of Cloud Continuity also ensures a painless experience for the end user. Intelligent technology infers network settings to make it easy for end users to instantly virtualize their office. With the newest enhancements, users can establish secure connectivity between virtual and physical offices and fail back faster through concurrent restoration of servers. Advancements also bring the ultimate usability to IT providers, with additional user controls, alerts, and reports.
