GFI® Software Creates New Revenue Opportunity for Managed Services Providers …
CLEARWATER, Fla., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — GFI Software today announced the addition of GFI MAX Managed Online Backup(TM) to the GFI MAX RemoteManagement(TM) managed services platform. The brand new service enables managed services providers (MSPs) to feature secure data backup to the managed services they will offer customers at a time when demand for online backup continues to rise.
Businesses are increasingly turning to online backup because the importance of securely stored data increases and natural disasters continue to make headlines. Along with business continuity benefits, companies that embrace cloud storage can better manage the price and time needed for data recovery within the event of a disaster. a up to date report from Gartner predicts that “HDD costs increases by 5% to twenty% in 2012″(1) inside the wake of the hot flooding in Thailand which decimated an enormous section of the world’s ability to fabricate hard drives.
These costs combined with the exponential growth inside the amount of information that companies store are forcing companies to hunt new the way to manage their IT costs without sacrificing storage capabilities, which creates new opportunities for MSPs offering managed online backup. If truth be told, a up to date survey of GFI MAX customers conducted at GFI’s global partner conferences found that MSPs expect online backup services to be probably the most widely adopted via the cloud within the new year.
“Cloud-based backup is a natural complement to the services that our MSP partners provide in the course of the GFI MAX platform,” said Dr. Alistair Forbes, general manager of the GFI MAX Business Unit, GFI Software. “Here is our fourth major technology integration into the platform maximizing the breadth of services that our partners can manage for his or her customers. GFI MAX Managed Online Backup permits them to increase their revenue by providing least expensive, highly efficient, encrypted backup just as increasingly customers look to adopt cloud services.”
Features and benefits of GFI MAX Managed Online Backup include:
Powerful security with encrypted IP backup – Data is encrypted at every step of the method, ensuring that files, system states, network shares, exchange stores, SQL server databases and alertness-aware VMware Snapshots remain completely secure both onsite and within the cloud.
Low bandwidth usage – Using data de-duplication technology, only incremental changes are backed up daily, reducing time and bandwidth resources had to keep data stores contemporary.
Rapid restore with “Speed Vault” – The power to simultaneously back up data onsite and within the cloud allows customers to access local data quickly and simply.
Easy provisioning – IT administrators can specify which files and folders are backed up and determine a schedule that meets the ideal needs of a company.
Robust reporting – Daily Safety Check monitors the success of daily backups and shows information on all backup sessions within a retention period including usage and fees, demonstrating value to the client.
Pay-as-you-go pricing – Costs are in line with volume of knowledge stored, enabling MSPs to profitably meet the budgetary needs of any customer in spite of their size.
