With the launch of their new 2.6 Version Remote Backup Appliance, 3X Systems of Columbus is optimistic that the future holds strong growth as their market share increases both in the U.S. and overseas.
3X was founded in 2006 by Alan Arman with the help of a $500,000 grant from TechColumbus. Today, the company has hundreds of clients in countries around the world and saw growth of 74 percent in 2009, says Arman.
Arman's mission when he founded the company was to create data back up that was affordable and reliable. Customers include medical practices, law firms, non-profit groups and small to medium size manufacturing companies, he says. They appreciate one of the key features of the storage back up - which is that they control where the data is stored.
"We allow customers to control where the data back up goes," he says. "They have access to the data. No one else can access it."
Arman says clients choose where the data storage appliance is located, something that is not normally a choice when hiring a data back up service.As sales continue to increase in the next 12 to 24 months, Arman says he plans to hire up to three new professionals in sales, marketing and software development to add to the 10 employees he now has. He says he expects sales to double this year.
