iSpeed Solutions To Offer BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS) to SMB Clients -- Leading Microsoft IT Support and Managed Services Provider (MSP) To Offer Enterprise-Class Data Protection, with Modular Deployment and Pricing Flexibility
iSpeed Solutions, today announced it has extended its partnership with BackupAssist and will now offer BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS), fortifying its leadership position as a premier provider of data protection solutions for the SMB. BAaaS enables iSpeed solutions to ensure its clients have access to the features and functionality required for enterprise-class data protection, with the modular deployment flexibility and pricing that is ideal for the SMB.
"The BackupAssist solution has provided our clients -- as well as our own in-house IT -- with reliable and predictable backup and recovery. And, it isn't simply a chopped-up version of an enterprise-class solution, in order to make the price more palatable. BackupAssist delivers powerful and precise features, functionality and control. Moreover, our clients appreciate its flexibility. Clients can define their own dynamic security and backup to network, NAS, RDX, iSCSI, local drives, tape, USB HDD, and of course cloud," said Greg Miller, Business Steward, iSpeed Solutions. "And now as a BackupAssist MSP, we can offer our clients the ability to evolve their backup and recovery investment from a capital expenditure (CAPEX) into an operating expense (OPEX) -- which is a particularly attractive option for the SMB." He continued, "For iSpeed, that means we can deepen existing relationships, win new clients, and increase our bottom-line."
"iSpeed clients can now enjoy reliable, predictable backups, in a delivery model that best suits their IT, business and budgetary requirements. And should disaster strike, they can trust business continuity will be maintained," said Troy Vertigan, Vice President, Channel Sales and Marketing, BackupAssist. "Our goal has been to build strategic relationships with the most trusted and skilled solutions providers -- and we have certainly met that goal with iSpeed Solutions."
BackupAssist software delivers easy and predictable backup, swift and simple restore, and customized bare-metal recovery across heterogeneous environments, as well as remote-enabled, intuitive and secure end-to-end management. BackupAssist also uniquely features cloud independent backup, enabling the user to choose any combination of private and/or public cloud deployment, from any public cloud vendor -- feature-packed with data deduplication, encrypted containers and non-convergent encryption. And now, further enhancing the flexibility and affordability of the BackupAssist solution, customers can choose to evolve their backup/recovery investment from a capital expenditure (CAPEX) into an operating expense (OPEX) by leveraging BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS).
