Zetta.NET Announces Golden Parachute Offer for Symantec Backup Exex Users
Backup Exec Customers Receive Three Months Free Service of Zetta.net’s Award-Winning Cloud Backup and DR Solution When Making the Switch
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – April 2, 2014 – Zetta.net, an enterprise-grade cloud backup and disaster recovery (DR) solution provider, today announced a “golden parachute” offer for Symantec Backup Exec customers and partners seeking an alternative. The offer includes three months of free service when purchasing an annual subscription of Zetta.net’s enterprise-grade cloud backup and disaster recovery platform.
With layoffs, a slew of major management changes including the recent termination of CEO Steve Bennett, and several product challenges such as the discontinuation of Backup Exec.cloud, it’s been a rough ride for Symantec.
While the recently ousted Bennett was rewarded with an exit package reportedly worth close to $14 million, Symantec Backup Exec customers that are stuck in a long-term contract don’t have the luxury of a golden parachute to a different solution.
In light of all this unsettled business, Zetta.net is offering an alternative for Symantec customers and partners who are ready to make the switch. Backup Exec.cloud users will receive three months of free service with an annual contract which includes unlimited software licenses for local and cloud backup and disaster recovery, secure cloud storage, and 24×7 U.S.-based support, at a price point that is up to 60 percent lower than the cost of Backup Exec.
“It’s increasingly difficult for companies with disparate product lines like security, systems management, and storage to deliver innovation and value for specific technology segments,” says Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer, Zetta.net. “Unlike Symantec, Zetta.net is wholly committed to the cloud backup and disaster recovery space, delivering cutting-edge functionality at much lower prices. By and large, this is why our customer base grew by 130 percent in 2013.”
With 130 percent customer growth and 310 percent partner growth last year, Zetta.net has more than 950 satisfied customers who can attest to the value of its award-winning, cloud-based solution.
