Axcient has purchased DirectRestore, a Dover-based granular recovery technology solutions provider.
Axcient a Mountain View, California-based cloud backup and disaster recovery services company released reports on Tuesday regarding its acquisition of DirectRestore. The financial terms as well as the amount DirectRestore was purchased remains undisclosed. Axcient executives agree that this purchase increases its development team, thereby enhancing the delivery of its products to the market in a more efficient manner.
DirectRestore is one of the innovators in the market when it comes to the restoration of mainstream applications such as SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange database backups and replications. With this purchase, Axcient customers can take advantage of this technology for free.
Axcient CEO Justine Moore mentioned in an exclusive interview by MSPmentor: “By switching to Axcient, channel partners can now provide their clients with not only system level replication and instant recovery and failover for laptops, desktops and servers, but also best-in-class granular application recovery — all from one vendor in one dashboard from one deduplicated copy of the data.”
Moore also added: “There’s no need to install or manage separate products for file and system protection and MS Exchange protection like other products, which means less setup and management time for channel partners and that in turn means higher margins.”
Moore mentioned how they were impressed by DirectRestore’s technology. Axcient was in the process of creating its own granular application recovery technology when it has decided to test DirectRestore’s technology. He recalled “We were blown away by how advanced it was and how seamless we could integrate it into our core solution and merge it with our code-base.”
“However, since controlling the technology and having a fully integrated solution has always been a part of our mission as it allows us to develop more rapidly control our roadmap and service our partners and customers better, we knew we had to acquire the company or continue building the product ourselves,” he said.
Moore also mentioned that Axcient was always open to opportunities that fit their company vision and strategy along with the teams that would integrate well with our company culture. He said. “It is hard to find the combination of the two and that’s the other thing that makes DirectRestore so exciting — not only was the technology an extremely natural fit for us, but also the team is a truly phenomenal team with strong leadership and a very strong company culture that matches ours.”
Axcient solution together with the combination of DirectRestore’s amazing technology will be able to provide customers with an even better product that will allow faster recovery, more granular recovery options and reduced storage concerns.
DirectRestore acquisition will expand Axcient’s research and development by 30 percent. With this number, granular application recovery will enhance Axcient’s RaaS platform to support broader recovery capabilities.
Axcient is creating a new process that will protect access and recover data, and applications through a solution that is easier, faster and definitely more efficient than any alternative in the market. Axcient platform has been developed using cloud formats and it goes beyond backup and mirrors an organization’s entire business in the cloud.

All these will help secure any type of business no matter what demands of the industry may be,
