Kordia has launched a backup and recovery solution powered by software from Canadian-based enterprise backup specialist Asigra.
Designed to reduce the time spent by enterprise IT teams on the administration of their backup tasks, Kordia already has three customers on the platform with Honda New Zealand, Hawkins Group and McConnell Dowell going live this month and many more actively trialling the service.
“In fact, we have achieved a 100 per cent conversion rate between customer trial and customer production services to date,” says Aaron Olphert, CTO, Kordia New Zealand.
Olphert says the Kordia solution is designed to simplify back up procedures.
“Based on initial feedback from triallists and customers, some businesses are saving up to eight hours on backup procedures every month and of course that also drives down the cost of IT management,” he explains.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve our customers’ business and make management of their IT infrastructure easier - this new solution does exactly that and provides yet another layer to Kordia’s enterprise offering.”
At present, Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra, believes medium and large enterprises present special challenges to backup service platforms which often lack the capacity to scale without disrupting business operations or the ability to securely protect information in a compliant manner.
“Our solution was designed to adapt without concern over IT complexity, large volumes of data, number of computing endpoints or operating environments, thereby confirming IT service provider trust in our reliability,” he adds.
The Kordia Remote backup and Recovery Service is delivered by leveraging existing Kordia WAN and Kordia supplied internet access.
According to the company, pricing is based on stored data and recovered data and the service is available now.
