The package utilizes commodity storage arrays and is designed to replace traditional backup technologies, such as tape and optical disk.

Cloud storage provider Asigra and backup and recovery specialist CoreVault April 7 announced they are teaming up to provide a new business-class cloud backup and recovery service for the legal community.

Aimed at helping both large and small law firms in North America protect sensitive company and client data, the hybrid package is based on Asigra's Cloud Backup Platform and CoreVault's backup and recovery software.

The package utilizes commodity storage arrays and is designed to replace traditional backup technologies, such as tape and optical disk.

CoreVault stores all data using secure AES 256 encrypted continuous backups for data security and recovery in cloud computing environments, the company said.

CoreVault has an extensive legal-storage track record, having partnered with 11 bar associations from states including Oklahoma, California, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina representing over 325,000 members.

Asigra's Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery software has had more than 100,000 installations over the past two decades.

Using this new package, legal professionals can select to securely store copies of backup data both on-site and off-site in their two privately owned SAS 70 Type II Certified facilities for disaster recovery.
