According to the Sand Hill Group, “Cloud is all about agility and innovation. It is one of the key driving forces behind the incredible value that is being realized in the technology market today. The cloud enables and accelerates major markets such as Big Data, mobile and social. The cloud paradigm is shaking up every layer of the hardware and software stack; nothing is immune to this disruption including security, storage, networking, platforms, applications, management and even the virtualization layer. We are also seeing traditionally conservative vertical markets such as healthcare, automotive and manufacturing embrace cloud technology to leapfrog their competition.”

The Sand Hill Group’sTop 50 Agile and Innovative cloud computing vendor list does not consider companies that run multi-faceted businesses where cloud is but one area of their overall product or service portfolio. Instead, it represents a unique set of players of various sizes and hues that focus on cloud computing. Included categories span SaaS, Paas and IaaS, security, storage and services spaces with vendors that stand out from the crowd with a unique differentiation and value proposition.

Over the past 12 months, Asigra has introduced several technology innovations including the rollout of version 12.2 of Asigra Cloud Backup. New capabilities in the latest generation software include over a hundred new features across all spheres of functionality including cloud-to-cloud backup for Google Apps, single-pass backup of Microsoft apps (Exchange 2013 and SharePoint 2013), enhanced VDR functionality and new user interfaces. The new features in v12.2 build on Asigra’s promise of enabling recoveries from the core to beyond the edge of the enterprise.

The company also introduced the Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM) which gives IT professionals the ability to better control backup and recovery costs, even as organizational data grows rapidly. With this approach, fees are based on a Recovery Performance Score that is calculated over a 12-month period (every 6 months in the first year). A waiver is provided for the single largest recovery event in any licensing term and only successful recoveries are included in the calculations. Those who adopt this pricing model can anticipate immediate savings of 40 percent and long term savings up to 70 percent.

“We have made our name helping service providers take advantage of the opportunities the backup market offers while introducing innovative technologies that reduce complexity and costs,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “Recognition by Sand Hill as a Top 50 Agile and Innovative cloud computing vendor is a reflection of the effort our team puts forth every day. We remain focused on the principles that have driven our success for nearly three decades.”

Blow Your Competition Out Of The Water With These Search Engine Optimization Tricks
 
By increasing traffic to a blog or website, there is a good possibility that there will be a resulting increase in the sales from that source from the additional visitors. Optimizing your search engine will help to make the web site you have made more accessible. In this article you will find great advice for maximizing your optimization efforts.
 
You should make sure that the search engine optimization you choose, uses a quality and proven technique. Stuffing keywords haphazardly throughout your site won't do anything but lower your audience's confidence in your legitimacy. Consider custom-made content that is specific to your business. This will draw in the audience and encourage them to explore the rest of your website.
 
When you try to increase search engine optimization, you should make your URL something easy and understandable. It should be clear what your site is about. That way, people will known what they are clicking on when they are looking for something using a search engine and they will more likely click on your site.
 
In order to help crawlers and spiders index your web site, you should create a site map. A site map is a list of all the pages that make up your site. By creating one, web spiders will be able to discover even the most obscure and hidden pages, as well as to receive other important information. This will increase your visibility on the internet.
 
If video or audio items are shown on your website, you should have transcripts of these included. The transcripts allow your content to be easily understood by search engine robots. This will ensure your website gets a higher ranking.
 
Keep your content fresh. While having lots of content is important, it has to be up to date. A search engine will track how frequently your site is updated and this has an effect on your rank in the freshness category. Any form of change, whether it's a news article or a blog post, will help to boost your rank.
 
As much as possible, stay away from frames in your website. Search engines can't index framed pages. The best that they will be able to do is to index your home page. This means that, if the majority of your site uses frames, then the majority of your site will not be indexed.
 
If you want to avoid a three to six month period of your site being in a ranking abyss, do not make a lot of link exchanges or buy a lot of links right away. Take your time marketing your site slowly to the internet and your rank will go up much quicker.
 
If you have embedded videos on your web site, be sure to include them in your sitemap. Doing so lets the search engines know that your video content is actually part of your web site. This will help bring more traffic to your site, since viewers will be more likely to come to your site to watch your video rather than going to an external hosting site.
 
When search results are shown, it's probably the results showing on the first two pages that will see the highest traffic. The ideas you've read here will help you to build traffic and increase the profits you receive from your website or blog. Optimizing your site or blog can do a lot for your business.
