BackupAssist, a provider of automated Windows server backup and recovery software for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), already delivering its cloud-based solution in 165 countries across APAC and Europe, has expanded its BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS) and MSP Program into North America.
The expansion of BackupAssist’s solution into North America responds to the increasing demand by SMEs, and the MSPs that serve them, for enterprise-grade backup and disaster recovery (DR) with flexible cloud storage options to meet today’s IT and business requirements.
MSPs, VARs, SIs and other channel professionals in North America can now partner with BackupAssist to offer BAaaS to their customers. The MSP can win new business and grow existing accounts by offering end clients the ability to evolve their backup/recovery investment from a capital expenditure (CAPEX) to an operating expense (OPEX). MSPs would benefit from zero upfront costs, large profit margins, automated billing and payments, a dedicated MSP channel manager for pre- and post-sales support, a dedicated technician, training, and marketing material.
MSPs, VARs, SIs and other channel professionals in North America would also enjoy “seamless” management of end client subscriptions,”seamless” deployment of multiple licensees, invoicing, and real-time client alert messaging via the intuitive dashboard of the BAaaS Portal.
“The response to BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS) thus far in N.A. has been tremendous, as it has been all over the world,” said Troy Vertigan, Vice President, Channel Sales and Marketing, BackupAssist. “By aligning with BackupAssist, our strategic partners can answer the call of SMEs that require enterprise-class features and functionality, ease-of-use and affordability from their backup and recovery solution. Moreover, with the release of BackupAssist version 10, end clients can benefit from enhanced features such as cloud storage independence, encrypted backup containers, a 4x improvement in data deduplication and compression, and advanced application backup and recovery for Hyper-V, Exchange and SQL Server.”
