  • Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, VA-NC (1888PressRelease) February 11, 2012 - • AppAssure Software, the award-winning #1 backup for virtual, physical and cloud environments, today announced a special, limited-time offer for the AppAssure Virtualization Conversion & Backup Bundle. It's designed to provide full protection for your physical server during the time you're transitioning from a physical to a virtual environment. If anything goes wrong during the conversion process, you will be able to recover the physical server at any point within 90 days.
    • This Virtualization Conversion Bundle provides users with a free 90-day license to back up all of their physical servers so they can be migrated to a virtual environment.
    • AppAssure Software allows for entire physical servers--including the OS and data--to be backed up and migrated to VMware, Hyper-V or Citrix XenServer environments by restoring them as virtual machines.
    • Licensing for virtual machines created in the migration process is priced per socket, but the 90-day license for the physical server the customer is migrating from is free.
    • AppAssure Backup, Replication and Recovery Software is the winner of the 2012 Virtualization Review Magazine award and is a winner of the Gold/Best Product award in the Backup category as well as the Gold/Best Product award in the Disaster Recovery category in Windows IT Pro in 2011; many industry experts call it the best backup product for both virtual and physical environments.
    • The AppAssure Virtualization Conversion & Backup Bundle includes multi-hypervisor support for VMware, Hyper-V, and XenServer.
    • The AppAssure Virtualization Conversion & Backup Bundle offer starts today and ends on Friday, March 30, 2012.

    Greg Shields, a Microsoft MVP and leading technology industry expert, said, "AppAssure's unique inside-the-VM approach offers a compelling argument against the crowd of virtual host-based backup solutions. AppAssure's powerful yet remarkably simple architecture begs the question, "Why center backups around VM disk files, when their contents are what's important?"

    "In our benchmark tests, AppAssure proved to be significantly faster than legacy or single-point VM backup products, with performance ranging from 50% to 4000% faster than competitors' when performing backup operations," said Jack Fegreus, a world-renowned technology expert and analyst at OpenBench Labs. He added, "More importantly, we discovered AppAssure's Smart Agent™ technology to be unique in being able to provide zero-perceived restore time, without adding significant processing overhead by remapping writes and then consolidating that data in a lengthy post-recovery process."

    Jack Codde, SVP of Sales, AppAssure Software
    "AppAssure's Virtualization Conversion & Backup Bundle is a great option for customers who are looking for a cost-effective, seamless way to migrate their physical systems and data to a virtual environment with absolutely no data loss. By using AppAssure's award winning solution to back up their physical systems, they can recover those backups as new virtual machines-complete with OS, applications and data."
