And it’s making a splash with its March Madness “Hello World” special offer. We’re glad to help as HP (now HPE) is a long-time friend of the family.

DRaaS provider Axcient announced today availability of Direct to Cloud, an offering designed to enable organizations to replicate physical and virtual servers to the cloud without local appliances.
