Transparent Cloud Backup
As demand for cloud based storage services continues to increase, the number of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) offering cloud backup services is rising as well.
To date, there are some 50,000 MSPs globally providing backup as a service (BaaS).
With such a wide field of competitors, it is difficult for MSPs to truly differentiate their BaaS offering with the various SLAs, compliance requirements and application level intelligence customers’ demand while remaining both costs competitive and profitable.
MSP focused backup software providers like Intronis, have developed a mature, intelligent backup framework which addresses the Windows application and server virtualization backup and recovery requirements of small to medium sized businesses (SMB). By providing both a feature rich backup and recovery service that dramatically simplifies day-to-day backup and disaster recovery management, Intronis enables MSPs to lower their cost per managed GB and maintain a profitable BaaS operation.
MSPs that can provide a cost-competitive, feature-rich BaaS offering, will be in a better position to attract, retain and sell additional cloud services to their clients. By enabling MSPs to lower their managed cost per GB with a feature-rich cloud-enabled backup solution, Intronis is demonstrating market leadership in this space.
