The Asean representative of US-based back-up software maker UltraBac has named local tech firm InfoStorage as the distributor for UltraBac products in the Philippines.
The agreement was recently signed by Kuala Lumpur-based Vanilla Applications and InfoStorage, which is headed by veteran tech exec Butch Marking.
With the distribution deal, officials said small and large Philippine businesses can now meet the demands of a 24×7 Internet-based economy.
Melina Hwang, co-founder of Vanilla Applications, said, “Even small businesses in the Philippines are getting affected by customer expectations of 24 hour access to their services.
?As an example, we have come across small store owners, who have developed an online sales element to their business, resulting in computing systems and business data becoming a critical part of their business. Companies that had never touched a computer five years ago, now have business critical data which if lost could damage their livelihood.”
Hwang said UltraBac offers technologies that offer enterprise-class data protection and fast data recovery in the event of a system crash at a price point that meets the budgets of smaller Philippine companies.
?Further, the simplicity of our products also makes them well-suited to companies that do not have extensive in-house technical expertise,” she said.
Marking, CEO of InfoStorage, said there is a significant need for UltraBac’s data protection and recovery products among Philippine companies.
“InfoStorage has been a leading supplier of data protection solutions in the Philippines for over a decade. We understand this market, and we have experience in educating Philippine IT managers on how best to protect and recover business data.”
“We are very excited to be launching UltraBac in the Philippines, particularly that we will be launching a first for this country, by offering Continuous Image Protection (CIP) technology which is embedded in both UltraBac Back-up and Disaster Recovery (UBDR) Gold and UltraBac Warp,? he said.
