Asigra Delivers Powerful Cloud Backup Solution with Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances

Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced that it is delivering Asigra Cloud Backup, an agentless, multi-tenant NIST FIPS 140-2 certified data-protection software solution, with Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance. For managed service providers (MSPs) and enterprises seeking a higher financial return on their backup infrastructure investments, Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance provides a cost effective solution that delivers exceptional features and performance.

“As the storage world moves from its hardware-focused roots to the current semantic love affair with all things software-defined, Oracle is one of a small group of vendors placing the emphasis for storage on applications, database, and data,” said Mark Peters, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “It’s called Oracle ZFS Engineered Storage. The Oracle ZFS product line offers exceptionally high performance, and is well tuned to today’s market needs in terms of providing a very attractive total cost of ownership (TCO). This storage option for data protection offers service providers a competitive advantage when deployed as the core of their backup infrastructure.”

The Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance is ideal for MSPs who have clients that require more than 100 terabytes of storage capacity. The solution can lower capital and operational costs while improving performance when compared to traditional storage solutions. MSPs who offer cloud backup services today, but want to provide a more comprehensive data protection solution to expand their total addressable market, will find that the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance delivers excellent value. Existing Asigra partners who require a hardware refresh as their backup vaults exceed 100 terabytes can realize the benefits of this cost-effective and high-performance solution.

“Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance provides us with an advanced storage architecture that is far superior to a build-your-own storage solution,” said Reid Warrick, chief technology officer for Armada Cloud. “With Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 system deployed, Asigra’s Cloud Backup application performance increased eight times compared to what we experienced with our previous hardware platform. We also realized very high uptime, availability and scalability up to one petabyte with a single system, while reducing overall storage costs by more than 30 percent.”

“Because of the issues with storage migration in a multi-node storage environment, hardware upgrades are often costly, complex and time-consuming. The Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 system simplifies the process from top to bottom and reduces capital and operational costs in the process,” said Rob Mackle, sales and service director for Backup Technology (an iomart company). “The ZS3-2 is part of our investment to deliver truly scalable backup to our customers. It is a win for Asigra and its partners.”

“It has always been our intention to accelerate time-to-revenue for our partners by addressing the cost and complexity associated with deploying, managing and maintaining enterprise-class cloud backup services,” said David Farajun, CEO of Asigra. “With the Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 system, the complications of integration, troubleshooting, fixes, patches, installation, monitoring, maintenance and the requirements for skilled IT staff have been engineered out of the product. For our partners, this means faster time-to-market with a solution that delivers unmatched recovery performance.”
