Data Back to Life in Minutes
“We pioneered what is now being called the disaster recovery as a service market. Now we’re serving up an enterprise-class resiliency to more than 5,000 businesses worldwide,” Justin Moore, Founder, and CEO, Axcient states. Under the leadership of Moore, Axcient empowers businesses to have complete IT resilience with a unified, cloud-based service—protecting over 10 billion files and applications. Backed by its Fusion DR Cloud Service, the firm has customers that range from small family offices or sole practitioner healthcare providers to law and accounting firms, all the way up to large enterprises.

An organization’s hardware-less disaster recovery and archiving technology are combined by Fusion with a public cloud infrastructure on the back-end which allows users to manage the multiple workload data more efficiently through a single cloud-converged platform. “This includes data that typically exist in their own silos and needs to be managed separately, including data from non-productive workloads such as backup and recovery, business continuity, archiving, and analytics,” elaborates Moore. Their customers’ existing on-premise primary data infrastructures are tied by Axcient to public cloud services such as Amazon Web Services which minimizes the complexity of using the public cloud. For quick recovery to production, during the event of a disaster, Fusion allows customers to automatically restore their data and application in the cloud. Furthermore, clients have the option to search and recover data, and also make use of a sandbox environment to test their disaster recovery plans.
At the core what differentiates Axcient Fusion is it replaces all non-production IT infrastructure with one elastic, cloud-converged platform. What makes the deal even sweeter is the fact that Axcient’s platform that is designed to consolidate data can be deployed in 10 minutes. The platform delivers data efficiently with global deduplication and in-line WAN optimization. The platform also proffers firms with the capability of replicating snapshots to the cloud in less than 90 seconds.
Over the years, Axcient has been assisting many prestigious firms to build IT resilience with Ford, Bacon, and Davis—a full-service engineering organization—being one of them. The client’s previous DRaaS provider lacked a true disaster recovery capability. Without being able to quickly recover data, nor pull it from offsite locations, the firm left itself exposed to the risk of losing their valuable data.
“Over the years, we had more enterprises come to us to leverage our services and simplify their IT infrastructures or reduce costs,” adds Moore. Concentrating on providing Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to SMBs, the company took the next big step with its Fusion cloud platform. The firm has also extended its product’s plethora of features even further. The latest version features new cloud orchestration and workflow automation capabilities that are aimed at simplifying and automating continuity and availability for critical services. These features will enable businesses to recover rapidly from disasters or outages through pre-written workflows which cover all aspects of network settings to the order in which applications are recovered in the cloud.
Data Protection via Cloud
Axcient Fusion replaces all non-production IT infrastructure with one elastic, cloud-converged platform. “We enable every business to run with the resilience and agility of the world’s largest enterprises at one-tenth the cost,” states Moore. To further complement Fusion, the firm has released Axcient Certified Expert (ACE) curriculum to educate users on how to protect their businesses in the cloud with Fusion. The Fusion ACE training offers a detailed walkthrough of the Fusion service and is available in the Axcient Portal. “The ultimate goal of the Fusion ACE training is to get new users up and running with their Fusion service as quickly as possible while learning the Axcient recommended practices,” adds Moore.
Forging ahead, the firm continues to stay true to its philosophy of solving complicated technology problems with powerfully simple cloud solutions to enable businesses to run at their full potential. From a technological perspective, the firm plans to expand their reach and services and also empower businesses of all sizes to operate with the resilience and agility.
