The report is a comparison of leading enterprise backup software and service solutions with Asigra noted for end-to-end capabilities and support for physical, virtual and cloud-based application data.
The Top 10 Enterprise Cloud Backup Solutions report is produced by Business-Software.com, an IT resource for business software reviews, expert advice, in-depth articles and white papers. In this report, multiple capabilities were considered as part of the judging criteria, including the ability to support physical, virtual and cloud/SaaS platforms, deduplication, continuous data protection, snapshots, reporting and analytics and support for on-premise installation and management. Asigra Cloud Backup v12.2 was one of the few solutions with capabilities across all areas.
The report stated, “To keep all data secure, choose an enterprise backup solution that manages data on both physical and virtual servers and covers a vast range of data sources such as mobile devices, desktops, laptops and enterprise applications. While most solutions support various data files, be sure that your software is equipped to handle the types and volume of data your company uses. You should also search for a solution that offers de-duplication, continuous data protection (CDP) and a centralized management platform or console. Data recovery functionality can be vital in the event of major data loss, so pick software that retains snapshots of your networks, providing comprehensive data protection without disrupting systems. Since companies generate growing amounts of data on various devices and platforms, full scalability is a must.”
