Intronis Offers a Lifeline to Former HP Upline Business Users

Boston, MA, February 28, 2009 --( In the aftermath of the closure of HP Upline on Thursday, February 26, Intronis Technologies ( extended a hand to Upline’s former business customers, with a 25% Business Lifeline Discount and free 14-day trial. HP Upline is the second brand-name backup solution to fold this week, following the announcement that Yahoo Briefcase would cease operations in March.

“It’s unsettling when businesses put their trust in brand-name solutions like HP or Yahoo, only to be abandoned when the brand-name corporations decide to shut down the service,” said Sam Gutmann, CEO of Intronis Technologies. “We believe business owners do best when they choose providers who do one thing extremely well and are focused on the needs of business, rather than those that put a ‘business’ label on a generic, home-based PC product.”

Concentrating on the needs of business users, Intronis Online Backup delivers file recoveries at three times the speed of competitors and has earned a reputation among Service Providers and IT professionals for outstanding customer service and support. In 2007, CRN named Intronis ‘One of the Top 10 Emerging Storage Vendors to Watch’ and recently named Intronis a 5-Star Winner in the Partner Program for the second consecutive year.

Intronis Online Backup offers secure, automatic backup, on-demand restoration and archiving for Exchange and SQL databases, file servers, user files and email. Data is protected in transit and in storage by 256-bit AES encryption. The solution allows versioning, and minimizes bandwidth demands through Intronis’ proprietary Intelliblox block-level technology.

Business users of failed online backup providers should visit Intronis online ( or telephone Intronis customer service at 800-569-0155 to take advantage of the 25% Business Lifeline Discount and free 14-day trial.
