SOS Online Backup ( an industry leader in online backup technology, announced today plans to immediately initiate a push to secure North American partners to join its SOS Online Backup Channel Partner Program.

SOS Online Backup, an industry leader in online backup technology, announced today that it will be offering its SOS Online Backup service to VARs and Resellers who sell to the consumer, SOHO and SMB markets as part of the new SOS Online Backup Channel Partner Program.

With SOS Online Backup Partners already on three continents – SOS Online Backup is looking to sign over 1000 VARs and Resellers for its products in 2006. SOS will be offering VARs and Resellers the opportunity to sell the SOS Online Backup service – which is specifically designed for consumers and SOHOs – and for larger resellers who sell to enterprise customers, SOS Online Backup will also be offering the brand new SOS Network Backup Server – which backs up workstations and laptops on the network locally –prior to shipping backed-up data offsite.

“With fully hosted reselling packages, SOS Online Backup is dedicated to providing the reseller with an integrated hosting infrastructure that takes all the technical work out of providing online backup services. We let the reseller do what they do best, sell.” Explains Ken Shaw, President and CEO of SOS Online Backup.

A five billion dollar market. With online backup one of the fastest growing sectors of the IT Industry, the next twenty four months will see huge income potential for Channel Partner Program participants. With an array of “Business in a Box” solutions, SOS Online Backup reseller packages are as user-friendly as the software itself.

Unlike its competitors, SOS Online Backup offers a well rounded Partner Program, including prepackaged yet flexible marketing materials, legal templates and technical assistance. Add to that the option to utilize the SOS E-Commerce Server (which allows resellers to accept major credit cards out of the box, and to track their subscription revenues), two licensing models and the ability to rebrand the SOS Online Backup software with a private label, and you have one of the only truly all-inclusive reseller packages on the market today.

Since the SOS Online Backup service provides data protection for customers, whether they are big businesses, SMEs, SOHOs, professionals at home, students or anyone with electronic files to be protected, this rapidly growing network of first class resellers is quickly realizing the present and future profitability of such a relationship with a market leader in the online backup field.

Mike Peters, Director of Software Projects at Software Projects Inc., A global leader in IT solutions is especially impressed by the array of options and support. “The SOS Channel Partner program allows the reseller to either run the SOS Backup Server software on their own hosted infrastructure (after that infrastructure is certified by SOS engineers) and also offers a fully hosted solution – allowing SOS Partners to sell backup plans to their customers whose data is then hosted in SOS Online Backup data centers around the world. These hosted solutions allow Partners to be up and selling within 24 hours. SOS does everything for you – even giving you the signup and credit card systems. This is something even the industry giants still can not offer,” comments Peters.

Established in 2001, SOS Online Backup has given thousands of businesses and home-based consumers the opportunity to resume normal operation once a catastrophe hits, thanks to instant online recovery and the ability to access critical files from anywhere in the world using just a web browser.
