Axcient Delivers Faster Data Protection with New Block Level Replicator
Leading Cloud Recovery-as-a-Service Solution Provider Optimizes Cloud Platform with New Technology
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Jan. 13, 2013 – Axcient, the leader in cloud-based Recovery-as-a-Service, today announced a new block-level replication protocol that delivers up to two times faster data protection for its customer base. This new technology optimizes the Axcient platform to increase data transfer speeds and improve reliability of both image-based and file-based data replication.
Axcient is re-architecting the way companies protect, access and recover their data and applications, by delivering a solution that is easier and faster than any alternative in the market. Developed in the cloud, for the cloud, the Axcient platform goes beyond backup and mirrors an organization’s entire business in the cloud including emails, files, applications, operating systems and all of the interconnected elements of a network to ensure that core business functions are never interrupted.
Announced today, Axcient’s new block-level replication protocol uses proprietary algorithms to intelligently identify data blocks that have been changed and speed up the transfer of modified data to the Axcient appliance, requiring less user intervention in the process.
By efficiently detecting and capturing block level changes on both physical and virtual systems, Axcient creates a point-in-time copy of an organization’s entire infrastructure in the cloud, without impacting primary system performance.
Data transfer speed to the local Axcient appliance is now up to two times faster for large data sets with small incremental changes, which is the typical profile for applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server and other database applications. In addition, the new protocol for data transfer provides increased reliability of image-based and file-based data protection.
The new block-level replication protocol is part of Axcient’s vision to provide a comprehensive, single solution for data and application protection that minimizes costs, simplifies the user experience and delivers a product that requires minimal intervention.
Available today, the new block-level replication protocol is shipped as part of the standard Axcient solution, at no additional fee.
“Axcient works to deliver product enhancements based on both customer and partner feedback, and the new block-level replication protocol is the result of these valued relationships. Our goal is to provide a product that users truly enjoy using, and deliver a lightning-fast and automated cloud platform that solves the $26.5 billion application downtime and data loss problem. With this latest innovation, we are making this happen.” – Todd Scallan, Vice President of Products
