ONStor Inc., the leader in Enterprise NAS Gateway solutions, and Asigra , the technology specialist in agentless distributed backup and recovery software for network computing, have recently announced a partnership to provide a turnkey compliance package for enterprise backup and recovery that simplifies and consolidates remote site data protection.
The combination of ONStors Bobcat Series Enterprise NAS gateways and Asigras Televaulting for Enterprises agentless software enables organisations to easily address their compliance and data protection issues across multiple sites by consolidating and then sending the compressed backup data to a centralised location. There is no limit on the number of servers, desktops and laptops that can be protected since the agentless system is based on a compressed capacity pricing model versus a unit license-based model, ensuring all systems on the network are protected in the event of data loss. AES 256-bit encryption of backup data in-flight and at-rest prevents unauthorised access to corporate information as required by compliance regulations.
Unlike conventional data centre backup software, Asigras Televaulting software is optimised for multi-site backup and recovery. By addressing the backup pain points common to remote offices and leveraging the scalable performance and management simplicity of ONStors high-throughput NAS Gateways, which provide a centralised data vault, the ONStor- Asigra solution delivers true regulatory compliance. The combination also reduces hardware and software costs for enterprises that are dependent on NAS technology for remote site storage.
Critical data is too often left out of the data protection fabric at many corporations, leaving companies in violation of compliance regulations. The cost and complexity of protecting data across sites and across multiple computing platforms presents a significant challenge to organisations, said Jon Toor, vice president of marketing at ONStor. Asigra and ONStor have answered the challenge with a cost-effective data compliance framework that simplifies and secures system-wide data with policy-based data handling features.
This is a highly complementary solution that addresses compliance concerns of enterprises and SMBs, said Eran Farajun, executive vice president at Asigra. Companies recognise the need to consolidate IT operations, simplify management, reduce costs and provide greater accountability. Our respective products provide this ability to centralise the process. Because we share a common view of the market requirements and a commitment to the reseller channel, obtaining these capabilities is as simple as the technology.
Asigra Televaulting has been fully tested and certified for seamless operation with ONStor hardware. The ONStor- Asigra bundle will be sold by common VAR channel partners in the U.S and Europe. Package pricing starts at 21,000.
