SAN DIEGO, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Arkeia Software, a leading provider of fast, easy-to-use, and affordable network backup solutions, today announced that Pictime Datacenter has become the latest hosting company to deliver backup services based on Arkeia Network Backup to their customers.  Using Arkeia Network Backup, Pictime Datacenter's backup business both increases customer loyalty and improves profitability.  After using Arkeia Network Backup successfully for internal backups at Pictime, the company decided to add backup services to expand its service offerings.  

Pictime Datacenter, the hosting provider division of Pictime, delivers solutions and services for the hosting and management of high-availability applications.  The company maintains three large datacenters, each containing hundreds of physical servers.  Pictime Datacenter has standardized on Arkeia Network Backup to provide highly reliable and fast backup and restores in heterogeneous environments.

"The installation of a backup agent takes only 15 minutes as you simply configure a given machine and point it at the shared backup server.  We could deploy the Arkeia solution twice as fast as any of the previously-used backup products, and backups and restores have proven to be much more reliable.  If needed, we can easily access technical support and enjoy a quick response," said Fabien Dachicourt, Technical Director at Pictime Datacenter.  "Arkeia listens to our development suggestions and works with us, making it simple for us to build a successful backup business using Arkeia Network Backup."
