Cloud provider Pulsant wins Asigra Rising Star Award
UK colocation and cloud specialist recognised at global industry awards in Toronto
Reading, UK – 25 June 2015 – Cloud hosting provider Pulsant has been named as the 2015 Cloud Backup Rising Star by Asigra, the leading name in cloud backup and recovery.
Asigra noted that Pulsant was recognised for ‘offering comprehensive infrastructure solutions, and for making data backup and recovery services a key element of its overall portfolio’.
With offices and datacentres across the UK and around the world, Pulsant has emerged as a cloud industry leader, and entered into a strategic partnership with Asigra at the beginning of 2014, adding enterprise cloud back-up and replication solutions to its product range as a result. Pulsant has now migrated from offering data recovery as a support service, to providing all-encompassing, managed backup services.
“Our decision to work with Asigra has enabled us to mature our whole approach to backup service delivery”, said Rob Davies, Sales and Marketing Director of Pulsant. “We used to focus on bolting backup onto hosted services because ‘you should have backup’, rather than actually addressing the business significance of backup. This award from Asigra is great recognition for the progress we’ve made.
“By changing our products and our messaging to highlight the importance of backup and recovery rather than simply offering it as an add-on service, we found more opportunities to not only work with customers on their wider recovery needs, but also to address some of their business reasons for looking at this type of service”, continued Davies.
The award reinforces that Pulsant excels in providing not only backup administration but full end-to-end diagnostics, resulting in a single point of contact for management, and complete ownership of all backups.
David Farajun, CEO of Asigra said: “Pulsant deserves this award for its innovation, execution and business excellence, and for their notable contributions to progressing awareness and though leadership in the cloud-based data recovery market. Pulsant has demonstrated a track record of success in deploying private, public and hybrid cloud backup services that adhere to the business and technical requirements of its customers”.
The award ceremony took place during Asigra’s Partner Summit in Toronto, Canada, the largest and most informative annual gathering of Asigra Partners, and cloud backup and recovery specialists.
