Reston, VA, August 24, 2011 --( AppAssure Software, a leading developer of the industry’s fastest-growing backup and disaster recovery software products for mission-critical Windows application servers, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require.

AppAssure was named a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor as the developer of one of the most innovative and easy-to-use backup and disaster recovery solutions on the market. AppAssure’s award-winning Replay 4 backup and disaster recovery software enables thousands of companies worldwide to:

- Recover from a total server failure in minutes
- Maintain continuous protection through 15-minute incremental snapshots of the entire application stack throughout the day
- Reduce down-time allowing users to access applications (including e-mail) during a live recovery
- Reduce disk space usage upwards of 80% with built-in data deduplication and compression
- Recover messages, files, databases, storage groups or the entire server from bare-metal in just a few clicks

“Enabling customers with the tools and strategies to solve real business problems has always been a priority to solution providers. The market has grown increasingly competitive over the years; so too has the demand for innovative, channel-friendly technologies,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “From the cloud to semantic technology, this year’s list of Emerging Technology Vendors highlights the emphasis on innovation and ease of use that has been the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2005 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.

AppAssure’s CEO Naj Husain attributes AppAssure’s selection to its continuous success in changing the way companies protect their mission-critical applications against inevitable server outages or total site disasters. “We’ve had a phenomenal year,” exclaims Husain. “We were selected as a Best of Microsoft Tech-Ed 2011 Awards Finalist in the Backup and Disaster Recovery category; we completed our 17th consecutive quarter of revenue growth in June with a 179% growth rate; our reseller community grew 100% in Q2 driven by AppAssure’s highly differentiated solution focused on application recovery. We expect to see accelerated growth throughout the second half of 2011 as companies look to private and public clouds infrastructures to reduce costs and improve Application SLAs.”
