Asigra Inc. is bundling the Asigra Cloud Backup offering with the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance.
The backup offering is an agentless, multi-tenant NIST FIPS 140-2 certified data-protection software solution, while the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance provides a cost-effective engineered system.
As the storage world moves from its hardware-focused roots to being software-defined, Oracle is one of a small group of vendors placing the emphasis for storage on applications, database and data, according to Mark Peters, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. He added that the Oracle ZFS product line offers a very attractive total cost of ownership (TCO) and a competitive advantage when deployed as the core of their backup infrastructure.”
The combo is aimed at managed service providers (MSPs) and enterprises, and is availablee via Asigra’s channel partners. The sweet spot would be MSPs that have clients that require more than 100 terabytes of storage capacity may want to offer cloud backup services, and existing Asigra partners who require a hardware refresh as their backup vaults exceed 100 terabytes.
