2015 saw a year of growth for Reading based cloud backup business Redstor with the business’s cloud GP increasing by 20%, before taking into recent account acquisitions.
Additionally following the acquisition by Redstor of South African software developer Attix5 in September 2015, the firm plans to increase its SA-based development team by 50% as part of its commitment to speed development of Attix5’s backup technology.
Redstor will also be adding new features and functionality to Backup Pro - the new name for Attix5 for education which underpins RBUSS its educational data backup product - with the launch of a new backup agent and greatly enhanced recovery functionality later in the year. The company has also further developed its flagship backup service for schools, RBUSS, in a move to provide education institutions with a cost-effective, single solution for whole school backup.
Commenting on the results, CEO and Co-Founder of Redstor Paul Evans (pictured right) said: “Redstor are committed to providing the best possible service for our customers and continue to look at ways we can improve. Acquiring Attix5 has allowed us to develop the technology based on customer feedback and we believe we are now in a position to deliver an even more efficient service to better meet our customers’ ever-changing needs.”
Evans continues, “With our Redstor Backup for Schools Service, we wanted to be able to create a solution that would do all the hard work for the customer. In the past, a lot of focus was put on schools only backing up their critical admin data with Redstor. However, as technology has further embedded itself within education and specifically the curriculum, it’s now vital to securely protect all school data. Therefore, we wanted to develop an efficient and affordable service that could meet this requirement. We’re now in that position.”
Evans concludes: “As we continue to grow throughout 2016 it is likely we will continue to add additional team members within the sales, marketing and technical teams. We’re now in an exciting phase, expanding our partner and customer base rapidly within and outside of the UK. We’re actively seeking new partners in a wide range of geographic regions and markets with end user customers that could benefit from a managed cloud backup service.”
