Altaro Software and Ipswitch Announce Strategic Partnership

Altaro Software, a fast-growing developer of Windows server and desktop backup solutions, today announced its partnership with Ipswitch Messaging Division, a leading developer of messaging solutions.

This partnership allows Ipswitch to begin selling Altaro Backup FS (server backup solution) and Oops!Backup (desktop backup solution) to small and mid-sized business around the globe. These cost-efficient backup solutions leverage ReverseDelta™ technology which only saves the changes between each version of the altered files, rather than backing up the whole file every time it changes. This innovative technology from Altaro ultimately decreases the amount of required space on your backup drive.

"Having continuous data protection is no longer one of those nice-to-have amenities," said Tripp Allen, president of Ipswitch Messaging Division. "This strategic partnership with Altaro allows Ipswitch to deliver this crucial technology to budget-conscious customers around the world. Ipswitch has earned the trust and respect of global businesses by providing reliable and easy to use products. These new backup solutions provide a low-cost, high-value complement to our existing products.".

"Altaro Software and Ipswitch Messaging are a natural fit as both companies focus on delivering full-featured SMB software solutions at an affordable price," said David Vella, CEO of Altaro Software. "Through this partnership Ipswitch customers now have access to essential backup software which complements their Ipswitch solution.".
