Next generation service-oriented information recovery management platform includes unmatched support for VMware ESX and ESXi, intelligent archiving and multi-directional data center replication

TORONTO – May 13, 2008 – Asigra Inc., the leader in agentless information recovery management, empowering service-oriented business continuity for the real-time enterprise, today unveiled Televaulting™ 8.0. The new offering includes industry-first agentless backup and recovery of VMware ESXi, intelligent archiving, multi-directional data center replication, enhanced enterprise application support and on-demand scalability. The availability of Televaulting 8.0 empowers service-oriented backup and recovery for IT outsourcers and the real-time enterprise.

“Enterprises must look beyond legacy backup and recovery technologies if they are to map IT processes to business initiatives, especially now that organizations are consolidating and implementing server virtualization in critical production environments,” said Doug Chandler, Research Director, Infrastructure Services for IDC. “Reducing IT infrastructure TCO is a significant challenge from the data center to the remote office and agentless information recovery management seeks to provide answers to these concerns.”

Asigra solves many pressing business challenges surrounding IT cost reduction, long-term data retention and business continuity. Televaulting 8.0 provides unified information recovery management from the data center to the remote office, empowering IT outsourcers and enterprises to reduce IT infrastructure TCO with next-generation backup and recovery. Asigra’s non-intrusive platform acts as an information recovery services ‘blade’ in the outsourcer’s portfolio. The technology delivers significant competitive advantages in the form of capital and operational cost savings by eliminating the negative impact of software agents. Agent-based backup and recovery issues of conventional methodologies resolved by Asigra include performance loss, manual deployment, cumbersome software and information management, restricted cross-platform interoperability and security challenges.

“Data protection and disaster recovery are top priorities for any company. This is especially true for us since we sit in a region prone to hurricanes,” said Andrew Schaefer, IT Director at Energy XXI, a leading oil and gas exploration and production company. “Our information is critical to our business and helps us maintain our competitive edge in the industry. We simply can’t afford to be down or lose our information if a natural disaster strikes. Asigra’s information recovery management platform, delivered through Terian Solutions, gives us the assurance we need to be fail-proof in the event of a disaster.”

Televaulting is the only 64-bit agentless information recovery management platform designed to empower unified enterprise information recovery management. This centralized approach was built from inception to protect the entire enterprise, providing a holistic approach to conventional agent-based patchwork solutions. The enterprise application-aware platform provides the most powerful virtual server backup and recovery capabilities available by any vendor to significantly reduce both capital and operational expenses associated with protecting virtualized environments. The platform also offers intelligent archiving that ensures compliance through data retention and allows reduction in costly storage hardware platforms by moving lower value data to less expensive systems. Televaulting scales both up and out, allowing performance and capacity to be scaled independently.

“Through IT outsourcing, real-time enterprises are leveraging the ability to contract or expand customized services around their business models,” said Joseph C. Jeter, Chief Sales Officer for Asigra. “Asigra’s industry-hardened platform, proven for 22 years with the world’s most demanding global IT outsourcers and multi-national enterprises, again delivers on its position as the information recovery services platform by which all others are measured.”
