Essential BaaS provides a new level of backup to fit the needs of smaller organizations
Boxborough, Mass. and Toronto, Canada – August 9, 2016 – Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services and cloud management software to the channel, and Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider, today announced a new partnership that enables Egenera to deliver a comprehensive, secure Backup as a Service wholesale offering. Egenera is pleased to announce the general availability of Xterity Essential Backup as a Service (E-BaaS), a new business continuity solution to back up and protect off cloud desktops, laptops and servers to Egenera’s Xterity wholesale managed cloud.
E-BaaS is based on industry leading multi-tenant, agentless Asigra Cloud Backup™ and is ideal for organizations with remote employees and branch offices seeking safe, secure daily backups to the cloud.
Xterity’s business continuity offerings now include three choices, including Xterity E-BaaS, Xterity Premier BaaS (P-BaaS), and Xterity Premier Disaster Recovery as a Service (P-DRaaS) to provide IT peace-of-mind solutions for companies of all sizes, and with varying needs.
Xterity Essential BaaS provides “set it and forget it” backup simplicity for end user devices (desktops, laptops) and servers requiring daily backups with a standard 30-day retention.
Xterity Premier business continuity services include both disaster recovery and backup services for companies requiring more flexible, customizable backup frequency and retention options, and 24x7x365 status monitoring by Xterity Cloud Operations.
“With Egenera’s addition of E-BaaS, Entatech can now offer a complete range of backup services for our partners to sell into the UK SME marketplace, in addition to the enterprise market. The cloud market does not require a ‘one size fits all’ solution as the flexibility of cloud solutions now means you can have the ‘right fit’, not just ‘a fit’,” said Paul Lloyd, cloud practice manager at Entatech, a UK-based Xterity distributor. “With E-BaaS, we can start simple by setting up customers with the tools required and allowing the service to run seamlessly. With our pay-as-you-go model, there is a low cost of entry into cloud services for our partners and sensible margin available for those who invest the time.”
“Every organization has its unique needs. Some require multiple backup frequencies and data retention options and some require only one backup per day. Egenera’s E-BaaS is specifically designed to provide daily backup for on-premise desktops and servers directly to the Xterity cloud for optimum data protection without the need for local hardware or resources,” said Dan Busby, vice president of product management, Egenera. “With the addition of E-BaaS, we now have a more complete offering to meet the needs of a wider range of businesses.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Egenera into the global Asigra partner ecosystem and look forward to collaborating closely with them to achieve their core goals through the delivery of backup services,” said Eran Farajun, executive vice president, Asigra, Inc. “As more and more organizations move workloads to the cloud, Egenera and its wholesale partners are well positioned to deliver secure, reliable data protection services for traditional and new data sources like Office 365 to customers worldwide.”
