Asigra, Cisco Integrate On-Premises, Online Storage

Cloud backup, archiving, and storage used to mean running a separate web-based management system. Now gateway appliances turn the cloud into just another resource, and IT must get on board.

Also interesting is what Drobo has done to integrate S3 into its storage appliances.  (http://www.drobo.com/solutions/for-business/amazon-aws/

Re: Beyond Cisco?
Asigra hasn't announced anything, but given that it is an arms merchant for many cloud backup services and its on-prem software runs as a virtual appliance, I wouldn't be surprised to see it show up in other branch-office-in-a-box equipment. I don't know of other router vendors adding server cards to their hardware however and that's a prerequisite. Alternatively, I could see Asigra offering modules for mid-tier NAS appliances from the ususal SOHO suspects (Netgear, QNAP, Synology, Thecus, etc.) since these generally run Linux kernels and many models will (or soon will) have enough horsepower to run KVM.

Beyond Cisco?
Kurt, Does Asigra plan to support other branch office products besides Cisco's ISR 2900 and 3900? Granted, these are probably popular, but my take is that there's a mish-mash of gear at most branches.
