Pulsant Teams with Asigra to Expand Services and Partner Base
UK-Based Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Provider Serves Broad Customer Base with Greater Economies of Scale in Partnership with Asigra
TORONTO – November 4, 2014 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today highlighted the significant growth of Pulsant, one of the UK’s largest data center and cloud infrastructure providers. Since deploying backup services powered by Asigra Cloud Backup® software, the company has grown its partner base and significantly increased enterprise and SME customers in the region.
Pulsant Limited is a UK-based data center and cloud infrastructure services organization that operates 10 data centers in 6 different locations across the UK. As a result, they are one of the country’s largest providers of Colocation, Cloud, Managed Hosting, Managed Networks, and Managed Application services with customers that include premier IT service providers, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large public/private sector organizations.
Pulsant selected Asigra Cloud Backup software for its single, integrated approach to data protection and its end-to-end capabilities to ensure greater protection for a wide range of clients while using fewer network and storage resources. As an integrated offering for the enterprise, the technology provides fast, efficient and secure backups of all types and locations of data, including physical, virtual, mobile and cloud environments.
“We chose Asigra Cloud Backup because of its flexible architecture. Since we have a wide range of clients, some geographically challenged and others of various sizes, we needed a platform and device agnostic solution with elements of self service that would comply with a range of security standards and governance,” said Rob Davies, Sales and Marketing Director for Pulsant. “We looked at different products but there were limitations to what they could protect, the pricing, the inability to perform over different network connections and also the simplicity of the user interface. Asigra was the only vendor capable of providing everything end-to-end.”
Designed for efficient performance and compatibility with public, private and hybrid cloud architectures, the Asigra Cloud Backup solution is equipped with:
- Broad protection of enterprise application data in physical, virtual, mobile and cloud environments
- Agentless software architecture for easier deployment and management
- Global de-duplication and data compression technology
- NIST FIPS 140-2 certified security, including AES 256 encryption
- Autonomic healing and validation restore capabilities
- Single pane of glass monitoring and management
- Restore validation
- World-class global support
“Asigra has been a first class partner. Since investing in the company we have been able to consolidate our offerings for greater economies of scale. This has allowed us to provide richly functional backup services to our customers at lower cost,” continued Davies. “In addition to the application, Asigra provided experience that helped us navigate around business obstacles related to expanding our services portfolio. The company’s support has been excellent from an account management and onboarding perspective as well, accelerating our time to revenue.”
“Asigra opens the doors to true end-to-end backup and recovery, regardless of user deployment size and requirements,” said Tracy Staniland, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “Ultimately, it is the end user that benefits from this advantage and in the case of Pulsant, has been a driver of success for the enterprise- and SME-focused cloud provider.”
