CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Backupify, the leading provider
of online backup services for cloud application data, today announced the
company will bring together more than 150 members of the Google Apps community
at "gSocial 2.0," taking place November 12-13 in Sunnyvale, Calif. In its
second year, the conference is the largest independent gathering of resellers
and independent software vendors (ISV) that offer Google Apps solutions for
enterprise customers.

Backupify collaborated with several of the leading Google Apps resellers and
ISVs to launch the first gSocial conference in 2011, shortly after the company
unveiled its own partner program. The company quickly recognized the
opportunities within the channel community to share best practices that help
enterprise customers embrace the cloud.

"Today over four million businesses use Google Apps, supported by a growing
community of resellers and ISVs," said Daniel Stevenson, Vice President of
Partnerships and Alliances at Backupify. "We saw an opportunity to support
this partner ecosystem by investing in a forum for committed resellers and
ISVs to connect and learn from each other. In addition to organizing this
year's conference, we are also involved as a financial sponsor."

For ISVs, the gSocial conference is a cost-effective way to meet top
performing Google Apps resellers, hear from industry counterparts about their
successful strategies for developing market demand, and generally learn how to
leverage the Google Apps Marketplace to accelerate customer adoption. The
conference provides resellers with a place to network with peers and to better
understand how to leverage partner relationships to scale business on demand.
gSocial 2.0 is also an opportunity for resellers to hear presentations from
established and emerging ISVs about how their solutions complement Google Apps
to address customer issues.

"The Google Apps ecosystem is such a nascent space that any opportunity to
gather with peers and learn from each other is invaluable," said David
Politis, BetterCloud Founder and CEO. "We're extremely excited to be a part of
this year's gSocial conference and look forward to watching Google Apps and
this event grow. At the end of the day, everyone in this ecosystem is working
towards the same goal of ushering more enterprises to the cloud and the
companies attending gSocial are helping to bring this about."

Backupify is joined by Pipeline Deals, Apptivo, Arachno, BetterCloud, Cirrus
Insight, Smartsheet, uberConference and Yippie Move as sponsors of gSocial
2.0. Channel community members can register at www.gsocialconference.com.
