Vaultize Announces Simplified and Transparent Pricing for Enterprise Cloud-Backup, Sharing and Synchronization
Vaultize, an enterprise-class cloud-based backup, sharing and sync solution, has announced simplified and transparent pay-as-use pricing without any device or user licensing. While other cloud backup solutions require purchasing huge storage quota for every user or charge additional licensing fees per user or device, with Vaultize, businesses pay only for the amount of storage consumed in cloud after de-duplication and compression reducing the cloud storage requirement by as much as 90%.
Enterprises are charged flat US$1 per GB every month on the amount of storage consumed in cloud, computed after de-duplication and compression. Vaultize performs smart and content-aware de-duplication across all users in an organization which can reduce the cloud storage requirement by as much as 90%. For businesses subscribing to less than 100GB the pricing is US$1.2 per GB.
There is no other cost – no device and no user licensing. That means businesses can deploy Vaultize client software on any number of devices across any number of users. Also, there is no need to buy high storage quota for every user which otherwise gets underutilized or gets utilized with non-critical data.
"While other cloud backup solutions charge customers on the size of the data on their devices, we are very transparent and fair in pricing. We charge only on the amount of storage consumed by the customer in cloud post de-duplication and compression, and that’s it,” said Anand Kekre, CEO and Co-founder of Vaultize. “We neither charge any user or device licensing fee nor make businesses buy large amount of storage per user unnecessarily. So even if our price per GB looks higher, our customers will eventually have significant savings.”
“Our smart de-duplication and compression provide up to 90% savings in cloud storage.” According to Ankur Panchbudhe – Co-founder and CTO, “For a business of 1000 users with 10GB average data, if there is a 80% saving from de-duplication and compression, we will charge only for 2TB and not on 10TB.”
Vaultize last month announced "Group Sync" – Dropbox-like file sharing and synchronization across users with enterprise-grade control and centralized administration. With simplified pricing, businesses can securely share files with outside party without having to pay anything extra.
Vaultize also offers flexible cloud deployment options for enterprises. Enterprises can choose any public cloud provider and geographical location for their Vaultize deployment. Additionally they can choose to deploy Vaultize in their own private cloud, data centre or in a virtual private cloud.
Vaultize is a flagship product from Anoosmar Technologies – a privately held and bootstrapped company with registered office in Pune (India). The co-founders Anand Kekre (CEO) and Ankur Panchbudhe (CTO) come with technology leadership and executive management experience working previously at IBM, VERITAS, Symantec, Reconnex and McAfee before starting this venture. They together hold 72 US patents.
Vaultize is the first backup solution designed from the ground-up specifically for cloud with enterprise-class SLAs, features and returns on investment. It was formally launched at INTEROP Mumbai in September this year. It was named in the select list of “Most Promising Technology Startups of 2011 from India” by the country’s largest startup platform Pluggd.in.
