Asigra does a great job at automating efficient backup jobs. We can schedule and automate the backup process, thus reducing the need for manual intervention and freeing up IT resources that allows them to work on other IT projects and activities. The Asigra process is extremely efficient. Its appropriate for any size business.

Asigra is well suited when we are talking about multiple clients due to the fact that you can easily manage all of them through the DS-operator. You can easily check quotas, how much data they actually use, where you have the clients installed and you can browse customer backup files as if you were using Windows Explorer (capitalizing on the whole ease of access concept).

If you need a quick (less than 15 minutes) RTO then Asigra may not be the product for you. Asigra does file level backups very well but is lacking when it comes to VMware backups and restores.

If implemented as a Cloud Service provider (Public Cloud), In House Solution (Private Cloud) or a mixture of both (Hybrid Cloud):

  • The Agentless Architecture means there are less support burdens.
  • Encryption at Source gives the customer confidence their data is secure.
  • WAN Optimisation (Compression & Block Level Incremential Forever and De-deupe of Data), enables a large amount of Data to be protected offsite.
  • One step Backup to both Local and Offsite storage enables LAN speed restores with offsite peace of mind.
  • Asigra Replication from DS-System to DS-System enables another geographically separate copy of the data.

Asigra is very well suited for a mixed environment... physical, virtual servers; endpoint devices; mixed platforms/OS, Windows, Linux, Unix, AIX, MacX server, iphones/ipads, etc...
Questions to ask- focus on security, on the encryption key and who has access, how data is protected from unauthorized access.
Question: Are you sure you can always restore your data from your current backup repository? How does your backup software protect against data corruption?
Question: how man people do you need to manage your current backup and recovery infrastructure and, do you need people with advanced IT skills to run this solution for your company?

Due to the security, compliance and regulatory aspects covered by Asigra, it lends itself very well to companies in Finance, Healthcare and Defence. That said, most complex businesses today will benefit from reducing the systems they currently operate. Given that many businesses still operate a tape-based backup Asigra provides the perfect tool to migrate onto which is truly future proofing them.

Asigra Cloud Backup Software is a very reliable backup solution which ensures an encredible high recovery availability and success rate with short RTOs. It is best suited to backup remote distributed data for a wide range of Servers and end point devices from and to traditional and cloud platforms . It is also great to backup mid range business IT to datacenter remote premises for desaster recovery purposes.

Key considerations:

  • Having a single backup solution vs multiple solutions and managing backup/recovery policies in line with RTO and RPO plans.
  • Awareness of future backup needs, e.g. VMs, P/V Server backup, Smartphones, tablets, laptops.
  • How to reduce backup/recovery costs as storage needs increase. i.e. only pay for what you recover.
  • What's your risk management and mitigation process.

Works best where 1 or more systems can perform backups per site. Because of security, data is encrypted when backed up. Data must be restored to be accessible. Other, less secure products, may allow to browse backup data contents and mount without restoring.

Where there is a distributed organisation with multiple systems but a desire for centralised backup, this is a particularly good fit, hence it works well in spaces such as the offshore financial sector. Also, where there are a high number of mobile devices and laptops in the organisation, these can all be backed up with no per device cost as the client software has no cost. Unlike many backup solutions which are owned by storage vendors, Asigra is primarily focussed on reducing your storage requirements rather than selling you more disk.

Asigra can be utilised in all enterprise and small to medium business environments with easy deployment and management. One of Asigra's key features is that it is adaptable and scalable with the ability to deploy and successfully protect data centre environments such as private cloud and companies with multiple remote offices. The military grade security of the product means that customers data is always safe from malicious intent and can be securely stored offsite with quick recovery times as there is no need to wait for tapes to be retrieved. The incremental forever functionality is an excellent feature never requiring master backups to ever be taken after the initial backup, resulting in an extremely fast efficient solution.

It's well suited to anyone from single site businesses to multi-national organisations. Traditionally cloud backup services required the installation of a software agent on every client side host server. Even in small environments, that quickly got expensive and complicated to manage, leading to “agent pollution". Asigra does not require any agents to be installed but instead reaches out over the network to back up operating systems, file systems, and applications, using industry standard programming interfaces - it's a much more effective solution.

Asigra actually has several flexible deployment options that mean it can protect small and large environments well. It can handle Windows, Linux, VMWare, and whole slew of other types of data.

One of the key things about Asigra is that they do not sell directly to customers. You have to go through an Asigra Partner. That is where the questions should be asked.

Is the service provider SSAE 16 SOC 2 compliant?
Is the service provider utilizing the Asigra replication module to provide two copies of your data?
Does the partner staff Asigra trained and certified professionals?
How does the provider bill? Stored data? Compressed data? Native size?

Asigra develops it's data backup and recovery platform for service providers. It's not shrink wrap software like other backup solutions that you can purchase and implement. Typically, I would not recommend the Asigra to a small office/home office (SOHO) as it's much more of a enterprise solution.

A customer who wants to backup data from one of the following is suited for Asigra:

- Virtualization
- Servers
- Mobile devices
- Cloud Applications such as SFDC, Office 365, Google Apps
- AS400

A customer who wants to run DR drills and know he will be able to succeed must use Asigra as a backup software.

It's key to work out what your clients' requirements are, we often find that clients requirements are wide and often do not have a single 'system' such as vmware servers that need to be backed up. Working out exactly what environments your clients require allows you to identify the software that will meet your clients' requirements.

I have been working with backup solutions for around 14 years now. Asigra is one solution that has a wide range of features and functionalities while retaining the simplicity of usage and making it a very simple product to learn and start using.

What is also important is the post sales support wherein the product code is done so well that you rarely need to engage Asigra's support team for escalations and support calls. On top of it, Asigra technical support works very well to ensure you are taken care of well & quickly. This is one of the most important things that you look for while evaluating any product as you need to have the right people around you when you are in trouble.

I would make sure they have full snapshot backups in latest versions. I would recommend a testing period before purchase and/or an onsite demo. I think this is a great software to use in the Managed Services industry. Companies are becoming required to have encrypted offsite backups. No agent to install on clients makes deploying a CDP type of backup very easy!!

Asigra is best suited for large multi-site Enterprise, MSPs, or customers of MSPs who want cloud based backup with many options. It is best suited for shops that have strong Linux resources and keen troubleshooting skills or can lean on an MSP to do the lifting for them. Agentless backup makes deployment easy and efficient for many servers. Fast WAN recommended.
