Axcient, a San Jose, Calif. provider of data backup devices and services, says it brought in $6 million in a first round of funding from Allegis Capital and Peninsula Ventures. Its offerings can also aid in data recovery, both remotely and on-site.

The round remains open, and the company says it may raise more capital to last it through 2011. It plans to add more services to its growing portfolio. For now, it only has a few hundred customers, gained through partnerships with consultants and resellers.
