Axcient Unveils Enhanced Bare Metal Restore Capabilities for Workstations
Leading provider of data protection services to SMB market adds ability to backup and restore laptop and desktop images, saving time and money for IT administrators
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Oct. 6, 2010 – Axcient, Inc., an award winning innovator of comprehensive data backup, business continuity, and disaster recovery services for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and their Small and Mid-Sized Business (SMB) customers, unveiled today the latest feature of their complete data protection platform, Bare Metal Restore (BMR) for workstations. This new development extends enterprise-like backup and restoration to end-user desktops and laptops.
With hundreds of thousands of laptops being lost, stolen, or corrupted each year, it is critical that SMBs have a clear protection and continuity strategy for workstations. Axcient’s BMR for workstations allows administrators the ability to quickly and easily restore entire desktop and laptop images with all of the associated data, applications, and settings to a new device with minimal setup or administration. This saves IT Administrators days of manual recovery and lost productivity and helps ensure uptime for their end-user customers. Axcient is the only company to offer BMR for workstations as an agentless solution, fully integrated with a unique and unified service for backup, continuity and disaster recovery built on one platform, from one vendor.
“We have reached a critical mass of Axcient partners utilizing Level Platforms for all of their IT service tasks. We are pleased to offer this additional integrated, web-based method of monitoring the Axcient solution as an alternative to our award-winning Remote Management Console. This gives our partners the flexibility to choose how to manage their businesses. Over 60% of all critical customer data resides on workstations, and yet, most companies don’t protect their laptops and desktops with nearly the same vigilance that they protect their servers. This powerful enhancement expands our data protection and business continuity features to cover all vital systems from the laptop to the server, and furthers our mission to provide seamless data and application uptime with unparalleled ease of use.” – Justin Moore, CEO
Axcient’s Bare Metal Restore for laptops and desktops allows the administrator the flexibility to chose which files, drives, or systems to backup, determine the frequency of full, incremental, and refresh backups, and select from multiple recovery points for full image restoration or individual file recovery. With Axcient’s adaptable BMR solution, administrators can also quickly reproduce a standard workstation configuration for a new employee, or perform a full restore for an existing employee to any compatible hardware using the latest system image. All of this can be done easily through Axcient’s web-based console and without installing any software on the network, drastically reducing setup and management time.
“Small and Medium-Sized Businesses require backup services that are reliable, reduce risk, minimize downtime, and make it painless to restore business critical data. Axcient is at the forefront of the backup, business continuity, and disaster recovery market, and with the recent addition of Bare Metal Restore for workstations, continues to show why they are becoming the data protection vendor of choice for the SMB market. Axcient enables us to meet our objective to protect all of our customers’ data and keep them productive at all times. We are very excited about Axcient’s continued innovation and regular feature enhancements.” – Dave DiStefano, Advanced Micro Computer Specialists
