Cloud, Business Continuity and IT Managed Services business Phoenix, won the highly acclaimed Best Endpoint Cloud Backup and Recovery Implementation award at the Global Asigra Hybrid Partner Awards held in Toronto Canada last night. The Group was also shortlisted for Asigra Hybrid Partner of the Year, Best Recovery Success Story and Best Cloud Backup & Recovery Competitive Takeout. The Awards are attended by Asigra's solution and service partners from around the world with over 200 people in attendance on the night.

The global award was given to Phoenix for the ‘Best End Point Cloud Backup and Recovery Implementation’ powered by Asigra, and is based on Phoenix’s work with a major UK plc. The Group demonstrated that the Asigra powered Phoenix Cloud Backup & Recovery platform extends beyond the datacentre, allowing clients to utilise the service to other data within their environment whilst maintaining their goal of having a single, secure and managed offsite repository of their protected data. Phoenix’s Asigra powered Cloud Backup & Recovery solution demonstrated that it could satisfy their strict requirements to protect critical data stored on circa 3000 mobile devices, achieve regulatory compliance, minimise reputational risk and ensure customer confidentiality.

Commenting on the award, Mike Osborne, Managing Director of Business Continuity at Phoenix, said: “Asigra has over 1,000,000 users globally and therefore their Hybrid Partner Awards are extremely well respected for their recognition of Asigra's partners' achievements in generating demand for and delivering solutions on their Cloud Backup services throughout the world. This is a significant win for the Phoenix IT Group as it not only demonstrates the wide breadth and quality of our service delivery, but it also recognises Phoenix as a leader in the highly competitive Cloud Backup & Recovery market.

“Moreover this is also great news for the Group as the customer example used in our submission demonstrates how our Phoenix Cloud based business continuity services were integrated with our existing Phoenix managed services to create a seamless, service-level assured solution.  I am extremely proud of the Group's capability to make this happen and the team involved for all their hard work.”

This is Phoenix’s fourth award in the past month, having been awarded BT ICT Partner of the Year, Business Continuity Provider of the Year in the product category for its Virtual Disaster Recovery platform at the Business Continuity Institute European Awards and Cloud Services Provider of the Year at the CIR Business Continuity Awards.

Cloud and IT Managed Service Phoenix has been confirmed as a supplier for the RM1557v, the Government’s procurement framework for Cloud computing services.

G-Cloud V is to be the fifth round of procurement to the Government’s G-Cloud framework and Phoenix will be offering a portfolio of products and services to it. These include Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service, and Specialist Cloud services.

Increasingly, more and more public sector organisations are exploring and exploiting the benefit of the Cloud via the G-Cloud framework – in using the framework, public sector organisations can more easily access the newest and most innovative Cloud services. This simplified process makes it easier for suppliers to provide these services, which in turn gives the public sector organisations far greater choice.

At the end of last year, Phoenix launched CloudSure UK, an off-the-shelf next-generation enterprise class infrastructure that delivers IT resources as a service, and last week won BT ICT partner of the year for its Managed Services division both of which highlight Phoenix’s commitment and investment in the growing Cloud industry.

Tim Bodill, Director of Phoenix MS Division says: “We have always been a firm believer in the G-Cloud framework and we will use our presence to demonstrate our experience and strength, by providing public sector organisations with access to an array of trusted Cloud services.”
