SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Asempra Technologies, a leading provider of instantaneous application and data availability solutions for the mid-market, announced today that Michael Hughes has joined Asempra as vice president of sales and Mike Morando has joined as vice president of business development.
Asempras patented application-aware, file-based, and real-time continuous data protection (CDP) solution delivers guaranteed application and data availability for Windows environments. Using Virtual On-Demand Recovery technology, an applications data is available for use within minutes, even seconds, of recovery. The data recovered is guaranteed to be completely usable on the first recovery, eliminating the need for multiple, costly manual recoveries that often result from other technologies and products. With the Business Continuity Server, simple point and click global to granular recovery provides recovery flexibility that ranges from individual objects, such as a single e-mail or file, all the way to a complete data center. Asempra dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of mid-market IT data protection by consolidating the needs of business continuity, disaster recovery, e-discovery, recovery management, compliance and governance into a single solution.
Asempra continues to experience strong growth in the mid-market arena. With the addition of Michel Hughes and Mike Morando to its management team, Asempra will continue to enhance and expand its presence with channel partners, end users, and OEMs. Michael Hughes, most recently general manager for Northern Europe at McData (acquired by Brocade), will be leveraging his extensive experience with customers and resellers worldwide to lead the development of Asempras sales expansion and strategy. Mike Morando, most recently senior vice president of sales at Incipient, will focus his efforts with storage OEMs and technology partners to expand Asempras position in those segments.
The extremely successful track records of both Michael Hughes and Mike Morando demonstrate their substantive value to growing strong companies in new markets, said Gary Gysin, CEO of Asempra. Their expertise and knowledge base will be invaluable as Asempra continues to rewrite the data protection and recovery standard for mid-market companies.
