Over 200,000 licences are currently in use, ensuring that customers can rapidly back up and recover their important systems and data in the event of failure.
Over 100 of the Global Fortune 500 Companies (2014) use Cristie Software’s products as part of their data protection and disaster recovery planning.
Cristie Software, established in 2007, is now one of the leading software providers specializing in solutions for disaster recovery and business continuity planning – particularly bare machine recovery, and machine mobility. Cristie is a very technical company. We are focused on software development and employ very experienced and skilled developers. Over two-thirds of our company are engineers who have helped build our core technology. We enable users to replicate machines and to take an exact copy of a machine in another location. We can do this either from a backup or from a running machine.
With the emergence of virtual machines and cloud technologies, we understand that people want flexibility on where they back up, store and move their physical machines – whether in a virtual, physical or cloud environment. Our software allows them to take a running machine, in real time, and create an exact copy of that machine – including operating systems, applications and data – in one of these other environments. Our mobility software, CloneManager®, is based around taking a live running machine and creating a replica of that machine in another location. Our key partners are IBM who resell one of our products in conjunction with their own backup software (TSM), and EMC where we provide solutions for their Avamar and NetWorker backup products.
Cristie is expanding rapidly. We’re opening new offices in different countries, adding to our development resources and we have a very exciting program of new products. We believe we have the right core technology; we certainly have the right people, and the right partners to take us to market. And we believe we have the vision to develop products which will change the way machines are backed up and recovered – regardless of where systems are based.
