Garden City, N.Y. – June 20, 2011 – Data Storage Corporation (DSC), a provider of data protection and business continuity solutions, today announced that it won the “Partner of the Year” and “Best Public Cloud Implementation” awards from Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986. The awards recognize DSC for its success in achieving outstanding customer satisfaction and innovative business practices in the deployment and application of Asigra’s Cloud Backup platform.
Two of DSC’s solutions, DSC DR and DSC Vault, are powered by the Asigra Cloud Backup platform. DSC DR is a subscription-based data recovery solution for organizations with recovery time objectives of 10 hours or less; and DSC Vault is a fully automated service providing a “point-in-time” snapshot of data across a network to a remote location.
DSC was honored with both awards at the 2011 Asigra Cloud Backup Partner Summit, June 6-8th in Toronto. Titled OutMarket, OutSell, Out Smart, this year’s summit was the only conference of its kind where hundreds of cloud backup service providers, MSPs and VARs from all over the world came together to hear the latest trends and technologies impacting cloud backup. The conference offered a range of strategies to help service providers take a leadership position in one of cloud computing’s largest areas of opportunity – cloud backup.

The Asigra Cloud Backup platform enables new efficiencies for protecting virtualized servers, large organizations with distributed offices and mobile workers, multi-location data center environments, while providing the flexibility to address consumers, small and medium businesses (SMBs) and the enterprise.
Asigra presented awards to visionary partners and customers in multiple categories based on technology and sales and marketing achievements. DSC was recognized for Partner of the Year for demonstrating business excellence in delivering Asigra solutions to customers and was honored with the Best Public Cloud Implementation for its cloud backup and recovery strategy for RailWorks Corporation, helping them cut costs and improve the quality of data protection.
