Quorum Provides Superior Alternative to Symantec's Defunct Backup Service

Incentives Offered to Symantec Users for Switching to Quorum's One-Click DRaaS Solution

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - With Symantec's recent announcement that it is pulling the plug on its Backup service, many small and midmarket customers are left wondering how to fill a critical hole in their business continuity plans. Quorum®, the leading provider of one-click backup, recovery and continuity for the midmarket, has the answer in its DRaaS solution. In particular, many customers who initially were satisfied with Symantec Backup have found that their need for near-instant recovery, PCI compliance and ongoing testing of the recovery environment can only be met by Quorum's advanced recovery technology.

Over the past year, Quorum has supported several customers transitioning from previous-generation DR technologies, including Symantec Backup Hailed as a "disruptive technology" in Forbes, the Quorum solution revolutionizes disaster recovery as the industry's only solution to deliver one-click backup, recovery and continuity, so midmarket businesses can be up and running after a disaster in minutes rather than days. The Quorum solution works by maintaining up-to-date, ready-to-run virtual machine clones of a company's critical systems that can run locally or in the cloud, immediately and transparently taking over for failed servers. This means downtime is slashed, and business-as-usual resumes without impacting a company's revenue, customers or reputation. Customers get the advantages of virtualized data center replication without the high cost and complexity. They also get on-demand and automatic testing at no additional cost.

"Quorum realizes that the termination of Backup may pose an inconvenience to current users, and that these organizations are likely in the market for an alternative," said Walter Angerer, interim CEO, Quorum. "We welcome the opportunity to step in and serve these businesses with a smooth transition to Quorum's one-click backup, recovery and continuity solution."
