Asigra Named One of the Top 20 Cloud Storage Vendors for 2011

Cloud Backup Leader Recognized for Public and Private Cloud Backup Platform

Asigra Inc., a Cloud Backup Recovery, and Restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, was named one of the Top 20 Cloud Storage Vendors for 2011 by CRN Magazine. Additionally, Asigra was ranked as one of the Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendors for 2011. This continues the company's momentum in 2011 as the company's Cloud Backup software sets the standard for MSPs, VARs and solution providers seeking the industry's best cloud backup and recovery platform.

Cloud backup is the direction to go, whether seeking to cut costs, fool-proof backups, or ease the minds of company IT staff now and in the future. With so many cloud-focused companies out there, Asigra is known for being the company who has been in the business for 23 years with many firsts in the industry. To name a few: Asigra was the first to provide public cloud incremental forever, local and global deduplication with additional compression in 1993; the first to provide a public and private cloud-based service oriented architecture; the first to provide agentless continuous data protection, and several others.

CRN recognized Asigra for its agentless cloud backup and recovery platform which features the most comprehensive capabilities on the market, saying, "Public or private cloud? Asigra's got you covered. The company offers a Public Cloud Backup or Private Cloud Backup Solution to cover the backup bases in both types of environments, and it requires no agent to back up data on your servers."

"The cloud was made for storage. At its core, the cloud offers a nearly infinite space to store data, whether it's for backup, business continuity, disaster recovery or any of the other myriad reasons. And for solution providers, offering Storage-as-a-Service, or offering the ability to back up or store data via the Internet, is creating a host of new opportunities," noted the publication. "The ability to expand or scale back storage capacity on a whim is a powerful proposition, and solution providers and enterprises want to ensure they're trusting their data to the right cloud storage vendor."

Cloud backup is specialized backup technology for protecting data by transmitting a copy of the data over a proprietary or public network to a public or private backup vault. In a public cloud implementation, the vault is usually managed by a third-party service provider, who charges the end-user organization a fee based on capacity. Larger organizations that build a private backup cloud typically deploy a proprietary vault which serves as the central backup repository for distributed enterprise backup. In conjunction with industry-leading storage hardware and services delivered through partners, Asigra delivers powerful cloud backup capabilities that allow organizations to economize and modernize their backup processes for greater efficiency, control and data availability.

"With an architecture built for better business outcomes, our partners find Asigra Cloud Backup simpler to manage, easier to support, and less resource-intensive. In the end, that is what companies want and we deliver," said Tracy Staniland, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing, Asigra. "We are gratified that CRN recognizes the value we bring and have been perfecting since 1986."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
