ORIIUM and Arcserve join forces in the UK

IT Service Provider ORIIUM, One of the UK’s fastest-growing technology companies, announced today that it is now a key Strategic Partner of data protection and recovery expert Arcserve.

ORIIUM provides data management and infrastructure consultancy including managed services and hosted services (Cloud Dynamix). For the last two years, the “channel only” company has been ranked as one of Deloitte UK’s top 50 fast-growing technology businesses and is seeking a hat-trick at the 2015 awards later this year.

Arcserve, is a world leader in data protection technology solutions for cloud, virtual and physical environments, with over 45,000 end users in more than 150 countries worldwide.
ORIIUM will cover Arcserve’s entire portfolio, including Arcserve UDP Appliance: the industry’s first complete data protection appliance. With assured and simplified backup and recovery capabilities, the UDP Appliance slashes backup times, cuts the amount of disk storage needed and offers comprehensive protection over disk, tape and cloud: all at an unmatched cost. The Appliance is powered by Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP), a next generation unified architecture for both virtual and physical environments. Key features, that enable SMB and mid-market customers to ‘set and forget’ their backup and recovery, include global deduplication, encryption, compression and WAN optimised replication.

The strategic alliance draws on ORIIUM’s market-leading data management experience. Its teams have undergone Arcserve’s in-depth technical training at ORIIUM’s northern HQ and can now offer pre-sales assistance, deployment, support and managed services.

Established in 2007 by Chris Kiaie, ORIIUM’s growth has surpassed expectations reaching 796% in the last five years. The business now employs a team of 35 and re-located to larger premises in Wetherby at the end of last year. This year the company plans to increase its team and revenues by over 30%.

Chris Kiaie, ORIIUM managing director, said: “This is an incredibly important milestone for ORIIUM: maintaining our market reputation as a data management expert and leader. Today, Arcserve is a leading provider of next-generation data protection solutions with an innovative new product suite. This relationship represents a significant opportunity for partners and customers alike.”

Giovanni Goduti, Northern European Sales Director at Arcserve said: “The strategic alliance between ORIIUM and Arcserve will enable, accelerate and support our rapidly growing UK market. Both organisations have a shared focus for quality of service, customer satisfaction and innovation. By combining our market leading technologies with ORIIUM’s expertise, we will be able to reach more partners, more customers and deliver an excellent customer experience.”
