Alacritus Software creates backup appliances that use disk (coupled with a streamlined file system) to improve backup speed by more than an order of magnitude. Until recently disk-based backup was simply too expensive for general use. Securitus, Alacritus’s flagship product, demonstrates how the rapidly declining cost of disk has made it economical for even terabyte-scale backups. Alacritus has chosen to use indirect sales channels, which means we focus all of our energies on refining, upgrading, and extending our products. To bring our technology to market, we work with major OEMs as well as a select group of Value Added Resellers. Our partners include some of the largest electronics companies in the world.
