Small and medium-sized companies can take advantage of industry's most dependable, flexible and cost-effective online backup platform, powered by Asigra Cloud Backup and Recovery.

(PRWEB) July 21, 2009 -- Storage Guardian, the company that specializes in online and cloud backup solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, has upgraded its cloud backup infrastructure to Asigra 9.0, an advanced backup and recovery software platform fully optimized for cloud computing. All Storage Guardian customers and channel partners are being automatically migrated to this new platform.

Moving to this platform brings several key benefits to companies looking to take advantage of cloud backup and recovery:
* Online backup and disaster recovery for virtualized computing environments (Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESX).
* FIPS 140 NIST certification, featuring password rotation that provides the option of automatically generating and changing passwords at random for specific user accounts so unauthorized persons cannot access the account or the data.
* Built-in data de-duplication and lifecycle management to minimize bandwidth and storage needs.
* Agentless software operation that does not require any agents to be purchased or installed on the existing or newly added systems under protection. The software reaches out over the network to perform agentless backup of all leading physical and virtual operating systems, applications, and databases, using industry standard protocols and programming interfaces.
* Full support for 64-bit computing.
"Our managed service provider and trusted advisor partners are looking to us to keep them abreast of the latest trends, so we're delighted to be rolling out support for Asigra 9.0 so quickly," said Dave Minns, client services manager at Storage Guardian. "As an MSP, if you're offering virtual environment solutions to your clients then you need a compatible online backup solution. There's no question that our new cloud and online backup service can address the needs of the most demanding business customer."

Dave Minns is presenting Storage Guardian's new service at the Hyper-V Unleashed Online Event, an in-depth virtual event produced by Windows IT Pro. To sign up, visit:
