Asigra Televaulting Teams with Virtual Iron to Bring Agentless Information Recovery to Virtual Server Environments

Datacenter-to-Desktop Hardened Televaulting Platform Delivers Global Data De-Duplication, CDP, Grid-based Scalability, Single Interface Management and Efficient Architecture to Joint Customers.

Toronto, Canada, November 14, 2008 --( Asigra Inc., the leader in agentless information recovery management, today announced that Asigra Televaulting™ has been certified for use with Virtual Iron’s server virtualization software. Televaulting is the industry’s most powerful agentless information recovery platform for virtualized server environments, reducing CPU and memory requirements while significantly reducing resources required for deployment and management of information recovery processes.

“IT efficiency is a primary factor driving organizational adoption of server virtualization and Asigra furthers that value proposition by providing a streamlined backup and recovery platform for virtualized environments,” said Adam Moise, Director of Global Alliances for Asigra. “Asigra Televaulting is installed on only one physical or virtual server at each datacenter or location targeted for recovery – there is no need to install software on any virtualized server (or any physical machine) targeted for backup. The result is optimal system performance, allowing the user to get the most out of their virtualized infrastructure.”

Backup and Recovery Built for Virtualized Server Environments Asigra’s pro-virtualization agentless backup and recovery solution for Virtual Iron Software allows virtual server environments to perform as promised while providing the industry’s most powerful information recovery. 64-bit Asigra Televaulting addresses the shortcomings of alternative backup and recovery methods for protecting virtualized server environments by providing the following:

• Agentless backup optimized for virtualized server environments;
• A pro-virtualization capacity-based pricing model;
• Any-to-any restore capability (P2P, P2V, V2V, V2P);
• Live VM backup;
• Automated mass deployment and single interface management;
• Compliant VM backup;
• File-level recovery at the VM and guest OS level
• Comprehensive enterprise application support;
• Extensive mixed physical/virtual OS interoperability, and
• Next generation features including global data de-duplication, CDP, grid-based scalability, intelligent data retention and more

“Asigra’s large MSP community is perfectly positioned to support the rapidly growing base of more than one thousand SMB/SME Virtual Iron users looking to protect their virtual infrastructure. By leveraging each other’s installed base, this is a win for both Asigra and Virtual Iron, opening new routes to market,” said Chris Barclay, Director of Product Management at Virtual Iron Software. “The benefits extend to end users where the collective advantages of greater infrastructure optimization and advanced information recovery management streamline business operations.”
