Toronto, Canada, September 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that LOGiQ3, a leading Canadian insurance and reinsurance outsourcing company, is protecting its critical data with Asigra's Cloud Backup solution, delivered by Asigra partner e-ternity Business Continuity Consultants, Inc.
A leading agent of change within the life insurance and reinsurance industry, LOGiQ3, a PROFIT 200 company, is one of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. LOGiQ3 provides a variety of outsourcing services including reinsurance administration, production underwriting, auditing, consulting and training to companies in North America, Europe and the Caribbean from its offices in Toronto, Canada, and Cardiff, U.K. The company selected cloud backup for its simplicity and ability to cut backup administration time up to 90 percent compared to traditional backup technologies.
Prior to engaging a cloud backup solution, backing up LOGiQ3's distributed computing environment was challenging. The company performed file synchronization of laptop data, requiring users to protect the data on their own laptops. To improve the process, LOGiQ3 built a portal for users to save data in a SharePoint structured environment, but it was not 100 percent effective; manual processes were still required. When users searched the backup data set for specific information, data was often difficult to locate. This indicated that backups using only file synchronization were incomplete. The company looked at on-premise solutions but did not like their heavy backup agents or the fact that they provided file-level rather than block-level data protection and deduplication. Furthermore, LOGiQ3 wanted a backup time of 10 minutes maximum, not the 30 minutes required by on-premise solutions.
LOGiQ3 turned to e-ternity, also a Canadian company, because it offered the best solution for its distributed environment. e-ternity provides monthly managed services that guarantee business continuance to customers and depends on Asigra Cloud Backup as the technology behind its services.
