Cloud Backup Leader Acknowledged for Top Technology And Channel-Focused Business Model
Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup and recovery software provider since 1986, today received recognition as one of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products for 2010 by CRN, a leading IT publication. CRN’s list was based on nominations from Solution Providers rating technology, channel influence, effectiveness and visibility along with business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel Editors. This recognition sets the pace for Asigra in 2010 as the company’s Cloud Backup™ software becomes the standard for MSPs and VARs seeking to add backup services, switch from underperforming online backup or move from reselling backup services to building a secure, efficient and profitable cloud backup vault.
“Asigra is again honored by CRN with this recognition as having one of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors for 2010,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President for Asigra. “The real winners, however, are our partners who have aligned with a software partner who does not compete against them and instead provides a platform and pro-rata partner program to compete effectively in the market.”
As a way of demonstrating its commitment to all partners—regardless of company size—Asigra’s pro-rata incentive program allows all Asigra partners to receive the same margins, incentives and benefits, based on growth, contributions and success, that are relative to the size of the partner’s organization. Unlike traditional partner programs which are typically skewed to benefit only a vendor’s largest partners, Asigra’s partner program is designed to level the playing field by making benefits based on partners’ pro-rata contributions regardless of size. This allows partners of any size to achieve top benefits based on pro-rata contributions related to revenue growth; prospective sales opportunities; technical expertise, and Asigra “brand ambassadorship” to promote awareness in the partner’s own community.
Cloud backup was recently highlighted by International Data Corporation (IDC) as one of the top 5 cloud computing applications in demand by end users1. As a result of the simplicity, reliability, pricing flexibility and deployment options, organizations are transitioning from traditional backup to this advanced approach. Cloud computing applications standardize processes to reduce training for greater efficiency and offer the latest functionality without additional capital expense, making cloud applications the way of the future. Asigra continues to excel in this area because of its focus on business-class cloud backup and 100% channel delivery model that has helped more than 500 VARs and MSPs successfully and profitably deliver backup and recovery that is aligned with cloud computing.
The channel opportunity in cloud backup continues to climb alongside industry-wide data growth, greater acceptance of Software-as-a-Service and a growing number of services delivered ‘from the cloud.’ Businesses are familiarizing themselves with the benefits and shopping around for services that best fit their organizations.
Winners of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products were announced online at Channelweb.com and will be featured in the January 25th issue of CRN.
