Axcient and SHI International Partner to Tackle $26.5B Application Downtime Problem

New Partnership Will Bring Cloud-Based Recovery-as-a-Service to Thousands of Businesses Across North America

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 28, 2014) - Axcient, the leader in cloud-based Recovery-as-a-Service, and SHI International, one of the largest global solution providers in technology, today announced a new partnership to deliver cloud-based disaster recovery and business continuity solutions to North America businesses.

"We have seen the need for an integrated disaster recovery and business continuity solution in the market, and Axcient is one of the best partners to fill this need," explained Richard Place, general manager of cloud services at SHI International. "While most companies have separate products for backup, replication, deduplication, WAN optimization, disaster recovery and business continuity, and struggle to manage these disparate systems, Axcient's cloud platform provides all of these and more with a single solution. We look forward to addressing the market needs with Axcient."

Recently named the fastest growing security company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine, and the fastest growing company in Silicon Valley by the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Axcient has been on a blistering growth path with over 3,000 percent revenue growth in the past three years. CEO and Founder, Justin Moore, calls this partnership "An exciting opportunity for Axcient to join forces with a leading provider of technology products and services that clearly understands the needs of technology professionals and knows that the future is in cloud-enabled technologies."

The new partnership will involve joint marketing programs aimed at educating the market and providing an affordable solution for mid-size companies that need a better way to protect data, applications and IT infrastructures.
