Our company started in 2014 as a provider of managed IT services. We used to resell data management and protection products and realized that none of the vendors offer a modern and reliable solution for cloud IT environments.
Dissatisfied with the slow and unreliable legacy tools based on pre-cloud technologies, we developed a cloud-native platform built from the ground-up to support cloud apps.
Afi launched the backup service in 2017 and become the youngest Office 365 & G Suite backup vendor. There were already 50+ incumbent vendors on the market, but unlike them Afi introduced a platform based on a new container architecture, leveraging AI to automate data protection.
Our goal is to provide a reliable and scalable service, with full-fidelity support of cloud data sources and the most granular recovery options. Afi is fully hosted in GCP and AWS, and has no on-prem/monolithic components. The modern architecture enables us to deliver 2-3x faster performance and 10s unique product features including full-text search, smooth AAD integration, instant offline data export and more.
We're excited to see that thousands of organizations, from SMBs to enterprises with 50,000+ employees, choose Afi as their provider. Afi continues to advance its technology, focusing on backup, replication and orchestration of K8s, IaaS and other next-generation workloads.
Afi is headquartered in Atlanta and has an engineering office in Romania. Currently all our employees and contractors are working from home to comply with government recommendations.
Our platform is hosted in AWS and GCP datacenters located in Council Bluffs (Iowa), London (the United Kingdom), Eemshaven (the Netherlands), Montreal (Canada) and Sydney (Australia).
