We can apply our expertise and decide whether to locate it on 'highly available' storage or less costly offline storage. In either case, the MSP's client is assured of bullet-proof data protection and fast recovery.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 17, 2009
VARs and managed service providers that cater to the needs of small and midsized businesses (SMBs) can now add online data backup, business continuity protection and information lifecycle management to their list of managed IT services. By offering an enterprise-grade online backup service through Storage Guardian's VAR program, MSPs can create profitable annuity revenue streams by helping their clients avoid costly downtime.
Many SMBs need guidance with the complex problem of data backup. Data volumes are on the rise, security and regulation requirements (such as SoX, HIPPA, FRCP) mandate more rigorous data handling, and the typical SMB internal IT resources can struggle to keep pace. To address these needs, solutions providers can partner with Storage Guardian and its profitable online backup and storage solutions that feature tiered storage. Storage Guardian provides its reseller partners with training, tools and support so that they can sell, install and monetize an ongoing revenue stream that complements their existing set of services.
Storage Guardian's approach recognizes that the value of information stored on most computers decreases as time goes by. Working with its channel partners Storage Guardian formulates a data retention strategy based on backup lifecycle management, which categorizes data on a scale that ranges from 'operationally critical' to 'stagnant'.
"We like to tell our MSP partners that they can turn stagnant data into a new revenue stream. As much as 80 percent of data that is backed up is never going to change, and yet many online backup services treat it (and charge for it) like operationally critical data," says Dave Minns, client services manager at Storage Guardian. "We can apply our expertise and decide whether to locate it on 'highly available' storage or less costly offline storage. In either case, the MSP's client is assured of bullet-proof data protection and fast recovery."
With more than ten years of experience and hundreds of satisfied customers, Storage Guardian remote data backup service has established itself as a dependable provider of enterprise-grade online backup technology for smaller companies. What sets it apart from the many low-cost alternatives in the market are online data backup features optimized for businesses that depend on servers--nowadays, that's most SMBs. Storage Guardian's enterprise-grade online backup technology is designed to complement Exchange, Small Business Server, SharePoint Server, and Active Directory.
