ATScloud Selected by ExaGrid Systems, Inc. to Deliver Secure BDRcloud Solutions Nationwide
DALLAS, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — ATScloud, a leading innovator and provider of Hybrid-cloud services, has been selected by ExaGrid Systems, the leader in scalable disk-based back-up solutions with data deduplication, as its strategic partner in delivering cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). This strategic partnership offers ExaGrid and ATScloud customers throughout the United States a true, secure-BDRcloud solution. New and existing ExaGrid customers now have the option to replicate their backup data to ATScloud, reducing or eliminating the need to vault tapes off-site for disaster protection.
This new collaboration, leveraging respective strengths and engineering expertise from both organizations, is a strong fit with market needs and is expected to spark immediate attention from ATScloud’s MSP partners and ExaGrid’s VARs due to the growing market demand for a scalable, secure cloud-based Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution. This breakthrough solution and partnership extends the award-winning ExaGrid disk-based deduplication capabilities to the cloud, providing distinctive benefits including:
- Advanced options for DR audit and rapid recovery of backup data in the event of a disaster,
- Flexibility to pay for only what is used, avoiding the need to overbuy capacity,
- Ability to add or remove capacity quickly as needs dictate, and
- No up-front capital costs for off-site storage of backup data for DR.
“Our announcement with industry leader ExaGrid is another solid step in our journey to build on our secure hybrid-cloud infrastructure and become a leader in the BDRcloud era,” said Steve Willard, ATScloud EVP Business Development. “This partnership will help us strengthen and anchor our BDRcloud solution for our dedicated MSP partners. ExaGrid is the perfect partner to help us fully realize and service the BDRcloud opportunities in the short and long term.”
Housed in a Tier 4 Data Center, the industry’s( )first comprehensive secure BDRcloud solution provides customers the best of both worlds: significantly reducing the requirement for off-site storage of backup tapes while creating new deployment options for off-site, disk-based storage of backups.
Marc Crespi, ExaGrid VP, said, “The relationship with ATScloud represents a powerful opportunity for ExaGrid to significantly expand its presence throughout the United States, and extend it to other parts of the world over time. ATScloud has clearly demonstrated its ability to apply its considerable resources and expertise to not only enter the DRasS market, but to lead in it. We’re excited to partner with ATScloud as we focus our combined energies serving a broader range of customers with industry-leading backup and recovery solutions.”
