cloud-backup-managed-hostingCloudBerry Lab, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, has announced that its cloud backup service for managed hosting and services providers, CloudBerry Managed Backup, now allows to configure remote FTP or SFTP location as backend backup storage.

CloudBerry Managed Backup offers managed hosting and services providers a variety of storage options to keep customer’s backups including Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Windows Azure and Openstack cloud platforms. Now with the latest upgrade, backup service providers can store any amount of data on a self-hosted server with FTP/SFTP connection, the only limitation is the size of storage on a server.

Any IT service company having a configured FTP/SFTP connection on a Linux or Windows server can start a cloud backup business in a few simple steps avoiding high upfront cost and lock in to a specific vendor storage.

“Many smaller service providers already own storage accounts with their hosting companies that allows FTP/SFTP access,” said Alexey Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. “It is also easy to configure FTP/ SFTP access on a Windows or a Linux server to take advantage of the existing hardware and storage and start offering the managed backup service.”

CloudBerry Lab was established in 2008 by a group of experienced IT professionals with the mission to help organizations in adopting cloud computing technologies by closing the gap between cloud vendor propositions and consumer needs through development of innovative low-costs solutions.
