Arcserve has announced it has enhanced StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic so that MSPs can offer cloud backup and disaster recovery services to a broader range of customers with unprecedented ROI and profit potential. StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic now comprises 500GB backup per machine, annual retention points and powerful cloud portal management at a £18 per machine price point which also includes an on-premises data protection license for either ShadowXafe or ShadowProtect.
With StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic, MSPs can service a wider range of customer use cases including small businesses and data protection for small physical and virtual workstations. Thanks to StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic these use cases are now economically viable. MSPs can also pool storage across multiple machines for maximum flexibility and ROI. Unlike typical cloud services providers that add fees for features such as bringing customer data in and out of the cloud or recovering files in the event of failure, these features are standard in StorageCraft Cloud Services.
Martin Bannister, Managing Director, Kogo, said, “While more and more customers are asking for cloud backup services, we have struggled to solve their needs with a solution that is robust, flexible, easy to manage and profitable. StorageCraft Cloud Services Basic solves this problem. Features such as annual retention that offer up to 20 recovery points mean that we can configure backup and recovery around customers’ specific needs. In addition, the central and easy-to-use self-service portal makes management remarkably simple and efficient and further adds to the ROI.”
Florian Malecki, Senior International Director of Marketing, said, “As a 100% channel-focused company, we are committed to ensuring our partners can solve all their customers’ data protection and business continuity with ease and agility, regardless of their size, complexity and location. Enhancing the economics and ROI of StorageCraft Cloud Services does this. It will also help MSPs gain access to more organic and new revenue opportunities.”
