BackupAssist Launches Service, Welcomes MSPs

By Paula Bernier

Business information and operations have moved into the digital realm. That means we rely on technology working all the time, so we can keep customers happy and keep the cash registers ringing, so to speak.

That said, business continuity and disaster recovery plans and solutions are more important than ever. And BC/DR is not just for the largest organizations. Small and medium enterprises need to address business continuity and disaster recovery too.

A new solution from BackupAssist enables them to do just that. BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS) provides easy and predictable backup of apps, data and systems, and servers; does customized bare metal recovery to the same or dissimilar hardware; can remotely manage backups, restores, and more for customer sites; and allows organizations to swiftly and simply restore their data.

“Regardless of size, business organizations around the world continue to face challenges around meeting service level agreement requirements, response time objectives, and/or response point objectives,” says BackupAssist. “However, while the challenges remain almost identical regardless of organization size – such as increasingly stringent compliance regulations and legal preparedness mandates – the level of manpower and budget available to address the issues are not. Regardless, the consequences of not meeting these requirements can be dire. Consequently, for SMEs the ability to ensure SLAs, RPO, and RTO in an affordable fashion has risen to the top of the priority list for not only IT, but the C-suite as well.” 

BackupAssist’s related MSP Reseller Program enables managed service providers to quickly and easily add BC/DR offerings to their slate of services via BackupAssist’s BAaaS. In fact, several BackupAssist partners already have signed on to sell BAaaS.

That list includes DeltaCon Inc., Extreme Technologies, and iSpeed Solutions, all of which will be selling BackupAssist as a Service to their customers in North America. These companies are in addition to the BackupAssist partners already in place in 165 countries in the Asia Pacific and Europe.

Speaking of MSPs, the MSP Expo is in the not-too-distant future. Companies with an interest in forming partnerships with hardware, software, and cloud vendors looking to grow their distribution network; parties looking to learn about sales and business management strategies to increase their profits and operate more efficiently; and individuals who want to see, test, and compare the most in-demand communications technologies will want to look into this important event.

MSP Expo, which will be collocated with ITEXPO, will take place Feb. 14-16, 2018 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
