In Brief

  • Incorporated the Axcient solution as part of base managed service offer
  • Saved time and management costs with easy deployment and no third party solutions
  • Saved upfront outlay with Axcient's zero upfront costs
  • Uses the Axcient solution as a wedge to new customers because it is easy to sell and is a backup solution with the important cloud component

Axcient has provided Alvarez Technology Group (ATG) with the perfect solution to remain true to their mission statement of "making downtime obsolete."

ATG is a Managed Service Provider in the professional services, legal, medical, and agro-business markets. Their customers range from as small as five users to around 700 users with robust data centers. Previously, ATG worked with a number of third parties for their backup and recovery needs because no single vendor provided a complete solution to service the range and requirements of their clients.

With Axcient, ATG can now offer all the necessary features in a single-platform solution, including on-premise backup, virtualization, cloud-based backup, and the ability to quickly restore a server in case of a hardware failure or disaster. These features are becoming increasingly imperative to SMBs as they depend on their software, applications, and servers to stay up and running 24x7.

"Axcient is the right solution at the right time – not just for us as a business, but also for the marketplace."
