Oncore IT wins two awards for business excellence at the Asigra Partner Summit in Toronto

June 25, 2014 - Oncore IT today announced that it has won Best Public Cloud Backup and Recovery implementation and Cloud Backup Market Maker at the 2014 Asigra Partner Summit held in Toronto last week.

The Cloud Backup Market Maker Award is presented to the Asigra Partner who displays a strong level of commitment, creativity and innovation in driving adoption of their cloud backup services powered by Asigra in a specific vertical market.

The two awards recognize Oncore IT's work supporting technology users with innovative cloud-based data recovery solutions particularly in the UK financial services industry with a project completed with London & Capital, a wealth management firm with around $3.9 billion of discretionary assets under management.

London & Capital wanted to move away from cumbersome onsite tape data backup to a cloud-based solution managed by a third party specialist. This has radically streamlined how it approaches backup and recovery with significant cost savings realised, along with shorter backup windows, and improved staff productivity.

The 2014 Asigra Hybrid Partner Awards were presented during the annual Asigra Partner Summit held in Toronto on June 16-18 2014. The conference provides education on technology, marketing, emerging trends and sales enablement to support service provider service quality and growth in this emerging market.

Oncore IT delivers services based on Asigra's end-to-end cloud-based data recovery software platform. Asigra Cloud Backup™ is the industry's leading cloud-based data recovery software with over one million installations worldwide. The software is built for service providers to deliver a secure, reliable cloud backup and recovery service and easily integrates with public, private, and hybrid cloud architectures. Asigra's agentless architecture provides for simple deployment and hands-free management while providing advanced features, including global de-duplication, automated mass deployment, autonomic healing, and validation restore capabilities.

Domain expertise is critical in the deployment of successful cloud-based data recovery services and the guidance provided to customers by their trusted service provider ensures success in even the most complex IT environments.

David Farajun, CEO, Asigra, said, "Success is never an accident. It is always the result of dedication, planning and a focused effort. Oncore IT has demonstrated the technology and business skills which have enabled it to become a premier provider of cloud-based data recovery. They have demonstrated excellence in customer-centered IT services to deliver next-generation data protection, backed by the highest levels of quality and support. We congratulate Oncore IT and thank all of our partners for their continued achievements."

Paul Cook, Oncore IT's sales and marketing director, said, "Backup and recovery solutions powered by Asigra represent a significant proportion of our revenue and demand for it continues to increase. Since merging with 5WS and our launch into Holland, we're seeing huge interest in Asigra in the Netherlands as customers demand not only excellent technology under the hood but services and support to help address their specific requirements. We really appreciate the awards having worked hard to meet and exceed customer demands for data protection that is reliable, efficient and affordable."
