Asigra, a cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, announced the Asigra Cloud OpEX Backup Appliance which will be shown for the first time at the 2019 VMworld conference in booth #461. In partnership with Zadara, the new backup solution combines Asigra Cloud Backup V14 software with the Zadara Cloud Storage Platform, using industry-standard hardware and patented Zadara software to deliver enterprise-class speed, security, and scalability.

The Asigra Cloud OpEx Backup Appliance is a virtual backup solution that integrates Asigra Cloud Backup Software version 14 with the Zadara software-defined cloud storage platform available exclusively as a consumption-based service. The solution can be deployed on premises, at a colocation facility or in the public cloud and converges data protection and cyber-security to counter malware attacks on backup data, including ransomware Attack-Loops™ . With extensive automation, the Asigra Cloud OpEX Backup Appliance allows IT and backup administrators to easily and effectively safeguard business data using the solution’s powerful features, intuitive console that simplifies managed backup, and subscription-based pricing model to temper the costs of backup and recovery.

The Zadara Cloud Platform uses a combination of industry-standard hardware and patented Zadara software to create a virtualized data storage resource abstraction layer with both enterprise functionality and cloud convenience. Combined with Asigra software, the solution allows administrators to operate in confidence and work with any data type or protocol across multi-location distributed IT environments. The highly available (HA) solution delivers superior scalability, flexibility, data integrity, and a compelling total cost of ownership (TCO).
