OwnBackup Ports Cloud-to-Cloud Backup Offering to Azure

Cloud-to-cloud backup vendor OwnBackup, a major player in the Salesforce.com AppExchange, this week announced it has added Microsoft Azure as a cloud-based backup target for Salesforce.com and other Force.com applications.

The SaaS-to-IaaS/PaaS backup solution was initially released last year with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the target. OwnBackup, with offices in Fort Lee, N.J., and Herzliya Pituach, Israel, also offers cloud-to-cloud backup solutions for ServiceNow and corporate social media accounts.

The Azure release is a first step in the Microsoft ecosystem for OwnBackup, which participated in the Microsoft Accelerator program and the 2016 Microsoft Global Startup Roadshow.

"We plan to continue to deepen our relationship with Microsoft so we can offer an easy and effective way for all enterprises to protect business-critical data in the cloud," CEO Sam Gutmann said in a statement. Although the cloud-to-cloud backup market is crowded, Gutmann is no stranger to its ins and outs. Prior to OwnBackup, he was founder and CEO and then-chairman of Intronis.

OwnBackup has partner programs for systems integrators and ISVs.
