Asigra’s agentless architecture was designed with scalable manageability in mind.
For an organisation with an expansive IT environment or one planning rapid expansion an agentless architecture is extremely beneficial.
Such a solution means that only one backup agent is required across an entire network. Backups can therefore be managed from a single console making administration infinitely easier.
The software is generally installed on a dedicated backup box and if granted with universal administrative privileges, can ‘agentlessly’ browse across any network.
The pricing model which goes hand in hand with having agentless architecture is another attractive aspect. This is because of its simplicity.
Often the cost of backup will seem extremely reasonable on the surface. However then the end customer will be hit with agent, plugin and licensing costs. If their environment is large, these can be extensive.
Asigra’s architecture allows Backup Technology to offer a service whereby the pricing structure is entirely based upon the amount of data being backed up. There are no hidden costs whatsoever relating to licensing, plugins or agents.
In addition support is provided across Windows, Linux, UNIX, Novell & IBM, again from a single point of administration.
When choosing a backup product do not be mis-led by extremely cheap data quotas, only to find that there are huge setup and licensing costs. Choose a service which is geared for the enterprise market and which envisages expansion with ease.
