Backup and disaster recovery software vendor EVault plans to continue its investment in the UK market, due to recent growth and increasing interest in data retention and compliance from end users.
The subsidiary of Seagate Services told CRN it has plans to grow 200 per cent over the next 12 months, through the investment of more staff.
Phil Evans, vice president of sales northern Europe at EVault, told CRN: “EVault has invested a lot in its UK market recently and plans to continue its investment with more staff.”
Evans said the vendor has plans to double its headcount, over the next year, by adding new consultants, sales and pre-sales employees.
He continued to explain that disk to disk backup is on the rise, in the UK storage market.
“Tapes are generally very unreliable, therefore customers want disk based products instead. Tapes need to be boxed up and physically sent to off sight to storage, but data on disks is sent to a backup server, which EVault calls the Vault, is replicated and directly sent to a disaster recovery sight,” said Evans.
EVault, partner to resellers 2e2 and DSG, listed vendors Symantec, Asigra and CommVault as main competitors in the market.
Simon Gregory, business development director, at CommVault said: “EVault believes it will grow at 200 per cent per year because it focuses on backing up data to disk. CommVault agrees that disk has become the primary target for backups.”
“In fact, over 80 per cent of our customers leverage our optimized disk to disk backup technologies today to back up to disk,” he added.
