CHENNAI, India (PRWEB) March 28, 2006
Vembu Technologies, a leading provider of innovative backup and storage solutions, has released the Service Provider Edition of Vembu StoreGrid, the flexible and feature packed data backup software that simply works with your existing hardware. Built for IT service providers who wish to provide backup services (typically online backup services) for their customers, this Edition will be exclusively offered through channel partners.
"We believe that Value Added Resellers, Managed Service Providers, ISPs, System Integrators and other IT Solution Providers are in the best position to take data backup, especially remote backups, to the masses," says Sekar Vembu, CEO of Vembu Technologies. "They already have a fundamental asset -- the trust of their customers. This is especially important as companies are in effect, trusting someone with safekeeping their confidential data. With StoreGrid's SP Edition, our objective is to facilitate this task, and in doing so through the channel, we wish to take enterprise class data backup features to non enterprise customers as well."
Root Consulting Inc, an SMB/mid-market focused Solution Provider with offices in four US states agrees. They started offering data backup services with StoreGrid's Professional Edition and are currently migrating to the new SP Edition. "Each of our clients' requirements is different and StoreGrid's software helps us meet those diverse needs. We provide a fully automated online backup solution that backs-up critical server data as well as work stations and laptops. We've also deployed a staged backup solution leveraging on-site servers. We needed a solution flexible enough to cater to different network configurations and one that would scale with our business needs. StoreGrid's flexibility, user friendly interface, and powerful features make it a compelling solution", says Bill Insull, General Manager, Root Consulting, Inc., Houston.
StoreGrid's SP Edition is expected to generate considerable interest amongst the Managed Services Providers (MSPs) community. According to Charles Weaver, the President of the MSP Alliance, a global organization made up of service providers and technology enablers advocating the 'Managed Services' model, "The demand for disaster recovery and other storage needs is only going to increase in the next several years. In order to remain integral to their clients, MSPs must have a 'ready to implement' solution. Online backup is quickly becoming the standard, even for the smallest of businesses."
StoreGrid works on Windows, Linux, Mac & FreeBSD operating systems, and is perfect for disk to disk backups of various kinds: client-server backups, remote/online/off-site backups, and its own unique 'trusted P2P backup' configurations. With a basic server and some storage thrown in, a VAR/XSP can be up and running with online backup services in under 30 minutes. The company believes this 'flexibility without compromising on features' coupled with a refreshing user interface and its pragmatic approach to pricing is striking a chord with the channel. Over 70 IT Solution Providers across the world have already signed up for Vembu's partner program.
