Cloud backup services for Europe

Asigra Inc has announced the expansion of its channel base in Europe through its relationship with Layer 8 IT-Services, a storage, networking, virtualisation and security specialist. This Swedish Managed Service Provider has deployed Asigra’s Cloud BackupTM to offer its European customers reliable, cost-effective and cutting-edge cloud-based data protection services.


Date: 12 Apr 2012

Layer 8 selected Asigra’s technology because its usability, excellent quality and performance. Bundling Asigra’s cloud backup services with other products, Layer 8 offers cost-effective packages for organisations looking to protect their data without the financial, technical and human burden of an in-house solution.

"The cloud backup and recovery market has been growing steadily over the past years, and is expected to continue on this trend in 2012,” said Carla Arend, analyst at IDC. “By using the cloud, end users have access to a secondary site for disaster recovery and free up floor space in their own data centres, which otherwise would have been used for backup systems. Improved management tools from cloud backup vendors simplify the backup management process."

“One of our founding members had direct experience of Cloud Backup so we decided from the start to make it the backbone of our data protection service offering,” said Johan Tungström, CEO at Layer 8. “Our customers trust us to meet their backup needs efficiently and cost-effectively, and Asigra Cloud Backup makes this an easily achievable goal for us.”

Layer 8 allows SMBs from across many different vertical sectors to modernise their data protection strategies by replacing legacy, disk-based backup systems with a service-based model. This enables IT administrators to manage the systems remotely, freeing up space, budget and cutting down on IT staff’s time.

“Cloud computing has broadened the market for many technologies that were previously outside the financial reach of many users and, as a result, Managed Service Providers are constantly looking to improve their offerings,” said Eran Farajun, executive vice president at Asigra. “In a short space of time Layer 8 has built an impressive customer-base thanks to its effective sales and marketing strategies and reliance on innovative technologies. We are pleased that Layer 8 has joined our strong partner ecosystem which includes many successful and growing service providers that are focused on delivering high quality customer service. We are looking forward in working collaboratively with Layer 8 in its quest to expand further.”
