AppAssure Grows 150% in 2010 as Demand for Fast Application Backup and Disaster Recovery Soars

AppAssure Software completes 14th consecutive quarter of nonstop revenue growth with thousands of companies worldwide using its backup and recovery software.

Reston, VA, January 29, 2011 --( AppAssure Software, developer of the award-winning Replay4 backup and disaster recovery (DR) software, today announced record results for the 2010 fiscal year, providing further testimony to demand for the company’s highly differentiated backup and disaster recovery software solution for mission critical application servers and workstations. AppAssure revenue grew 150% in 2010 as the company more than doubled its installed base, now with more than 3,000 organizations using Replay worldwide.

“When I first heard about AppAssure and Replay, I thought I entered into a dreamland,” said Brendan J. Hourihan, Director of Network and Desktop Support Services at Flagler College. “Finally I’m talking with somebody who has a philosophy about backups that makes sense - a more logical approach to how data is backed up and what you can do with the backed-up data. You can replicate it, synchronize it, and more.”
