AppAssure Reports Extraordinary 196% Revenue Growth and 18th Consecutive Record Quarter

AppAssure Software, the global leader and award-winning provider of backup and replication software for virtual, physical and cloud environments, today announced its 18th consecutive record quarter of growth. Total revenue grew 196% in Q3 of 2011 over the same period in 2010, and total revenue for the third quarter grew 18% over the previous quarter. These results reflect AppAssure's surging momentum as the industry's fastest and most reliable image-level and application-aware backup and replication solution for both virtual (VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V Server and XenServer) and physical environments.

This extraordinary growth is the result of AppAssure's focus on listening to the needs of its customers and partners, and consistently delivering innovative and ground-breaking technology that exceeds expectations.

"AppAssure's speed and ease of use are great and the continuous backup makes recovery go really smoothly," said Dave Buzzell, Sedona Group's CIO. "Our IT environment is constantly changing, and only AppAssure has been able to keep up with it. We estimated that we can keep three years of continuous backups just due to AppAssure's true global deduplication and compression technology. That's amazing!"

According to Shawn Clark, CEO of Applied Network Solutions, an AppAssure reseller partner, "Our customers are finding that legacy backup and recovery approaches are not robust enough to meet their ever-changing data and information management challenges. AppAssure's unique continuous backup protection and advanced replication gives our customers the confidence to know that they can backup and replicate business-critical applications to any cloud -- private or public -- and recover in minutes."

Highlights of AppAssure's milestones and successes in Q3 include:

  • Product milestones: Delivering near-zero RTO and 5-minute RPO with near-continuous backup and recovery across multiple platforms, AppAssure's unique technology provides:
    • Live Recovery ™ - instant recovery technology with near-zero RTO and 5-minute RPO.
    • Assured Recovery ™ - automatic recovery testing and verification technology that sets a new standard in data protection by assuring the recoverability of every backup.
    • Universal recovery ™ - cross-platform recovery that restores data volumes anywhere, from virtual to physical, physical to virtual, virtual to virtual or physical to physical (V2P, P2V, V2V or P2P, including bare metal recovery to dissimilar hardware); includes granular object level recovery with application-item and file-level recovery.
    • Multi-hypervisor environments - backup and replication support for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V Server and XenServer.
    • Embedded deduplication and compression - minimizes consumption of network bandwidth with backup storage.

  • Continued expansion of Reseller Partners, Technology Alliance Partners and staff:
    • AppAssure grew its active reseller partners and MSPs in Q3 by 27% driven by the partners' need for a unified virtual and physical data protection product.
    • Technology alliance with eFolder, a leading provider of cloud data protection and business continuity services, that enables AppAssure customers to replicate their applications to the cloud using eFolder's highly secure, SAS 70 compliant data centers.
