Axcient Named a Leader in IDC MarketScape on North American Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – December 16, 2015 – Axcient, the leader in Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), today was named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: North America Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Provider 2015 Vendor Assessment (doc #259816, November 2015). The report evaluated various DRaaS companies based on detailed surveys, vendor interviews, publicly available information and end-user experiences. Axcient’s excellent user interface, robust consulting services for high-touch engagements, strong testing capabilities, and in-house intellectual property and patents were cited as primary features that catapulted the Company over eight DRaaS companies to earn a place in the coveted spot.

Axcient mirrors an organization’s entire IT infrastructure in the cloud and is the only solution on the market that can be deployed in three ways – direct to cloud, via virtual appliance, or physical appliance. With Axcient, small- to medium-sized businesses have a single, powerfully simple management console that save costs and reduces complexity while improving both Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).

“While some DRaaS vendors utilize third-party enabling software for their solutions, Axcient has chosen to go the route of developing its own intellectual property,” said Paul Hughes, Program Director, Storage and Data Management Services, IDC. “Axcient’s user interface is a standout feature of the product. We found it to be very intuitive and well organized. This is particularly important as the UI is Axcient’s own IP and therefore likely to be an enduring differentiator. The company also offers extensive consulting services, which may be a key for SMBs that do not have the resources for dedicated DR personnel.”

Axcient also increases the reliability of data protection operations for more complex IT environments, allowing customers with increasingly virtualized environments to ensure that all of their servers and systems are protected. Small to medium sized companies trust that core business functions are never interrupted, applications are always available, and data is always accessible.

“As DRaaS technology grows and evolves, it is clear that small to midsize organizations demand sophisticated, yet easy to use technology designed for their businesses,” said Justin Moore, founder and CEO of Axcient. “DRaaS providers that cobble together technologies are no longer cutting it for them. As the IDC MarketScape points out, Axcient’s investment in building a cloud-based solution from the ground up is the key reason why we are a leader in the market.”
