New Account Control Manager automates cloud storage account creation, management and user billing for channel partners

BOSTON, MA — April 15, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announced Account Control Manager, a powerful new centralized management solution for its channel partners. With the Wasabi Account Control Manager, Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and other Wasabi resellers can automate cloud storage account creation, management, and user billing with an easy-to-use centralized management interface. Key benefits for Wasabi partners include increased administrative simplicity, reduced time-to-market for new cloud storage solutions, and new data-driven utilization insights to make better capacity decisions.

The Wasabi Account Control Manager helps partners simplify operations by automating the entire Wasabi account management lifecycle, from trial account creation to billing and policy adjustment. Channel partners use the solution to cut Wasabi implementation time down to minutes through an intuitive graphical interface.

Wasabi Account Control Manager also provides partners with data and insights to better understand how their customers are using Wasabi’s cloud storage — and gives them the information to build more accurate forecasts for future storage needs.

“As we bring hot cloud storage to a broader range of channel partners, the Wasabi Account Control Manager is here to make their account management simple,” said Laurie Mitchell, Vice President Partner and International Marketing at Wasabi. “We want to empower our resellers and MSP partners to do what they do best: provide their customers with the best technology solutions, including our hot cloud storage. Now they can focus on selling solutions and delighting customers — not on managing complex, back-end systems.”

Founded in 1997, Right Click is an Orange County based IT Consulting firm servicing medium-sized businesses. They provide services such as VOIP, hosted software licensing, and cloud data storage. Currently, over 50 of RightClick’s clients are backing up their data to Wasabi. They recently implemented the Wasabi Account Control Manager and it’s helped to transform their business. “Initially Wasabi was just a good storage solution, but with Wasabi Account Control Manager it has become a more integrated tool in our arsenal. It’s a good partner for us as a company but also a good value for our customers,” said Mehta. With more control over their Wasabi accounts, RightClick can accelerate their business by spending more time servicing their clients and less time in login screens.

Partnership Will Extend Global Reach of Compass, Bringing Modern and Advanced Data Protection to Enterprise Customers Around the World

LAWRENCE, Kan. — April 13, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise data protection, today announced its partnership with Rahi Systems, a global IT systems integrator. As the newest member of the Cobalt IronClad Partner Advantage (IPA) program, Rahi Systems will distribute Cobalt Iron’s Compass® enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) backup platform worldwide to enterprises in need of advanced, automated, and modern data management and protection.

Founded in 2012, Rahi Systems is a global provider of IT infrastructure, data center transformation, audio/video, networking, data storage, and security solutions. By including Cobalt Iron’s Compass in its portfolio, Rahi will enable its enterprise clients to take full advantage of modern data protection and progressive technologies such as analytics, automation, hyperconvergence, SaaS, rapid recovery, and infinite scalability.

With a greatly expanded remote workforce representing the “new normal” and security threats on the rise, organizations are finding that one of their most vital assets is at risk: data. At the same time, many enterprises still rely on an overly complex legacy backup infrastructure and traditional backup and recovery methods that are labor-intensive and have a high total cost of ownership. While many enterprise applications benefit from modernization, automation, and SaaS economics, the backup and recovery environment has largely been left to incremental feature improvements.

Complexity is virtually eliminated with Cobalt Iron’s SaaS backup platform, which dramatically reduces the time needed to back up data. Compass is a new approach to data protection, harnessing analytics and automation to drive out cost and complexity while delivering reliable protection and valuable data insights to the business. The result is a comprehensive data protection strategy that is flexible, manageable, and affordable.

“As one of the world’s foremost technology channels, Rahi Systems is a welcome addition to our IronClad Partner Advantage family,” said Chris Snell, senior solutions architect at Cobalt Iron. “This partnership is powerful industry recognition of Compass as the only data protection solution that is truly SaaS-based, multicloud, and analytics-driven, with award-winning security and cyberattack prevention capabilities built natively into the solution. Together with our IPA partners, we’re delivering the most powerful and disruptive data protection solution in the market.”

“Rahi are proud to announce our partnership with Cobalt Iron. Their Compass portfolio further enables companies to take full advantage of modern data protection and progressive technologies such as analytics, automation, and hyperconvergence.

Teletek Enhances Scalability and Delivers Fully Native S3 Compatibility with Cloudian HyperStore Platform

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian® today announced that Teletek, one of Turkey’s most well-established cloud infrastructure service providers, has integrated Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage into its VMware-based cloud services offerings. This has enabled Teletek to keep pace with the accelerated rate of digital transformation among its customers and resulting demands for more scalable and advanced data storage.

Teletek delivers a range of cloud services, including remote backup-as-a-service, disaster recovery and private cloud management to more than 350 customers in the region.

Seeing the need to provide a more efficient way of managing, storing and protecting these growing data volumes, Teletek evaluated several object storage providers before choosing Cloudian.

“We looked at Dell EMC, NetApp and others, but Cloudian’s seamless integration with VMware was one of the key features that really stood out to us,” said Taner Tekeci?, vice president of sales at Teletek. “We also liked HyperStore’s fully native S3 compatibility, modular scalability and industry-leading security.”

For its initial deployment, Teletek has installed a six-node HyperStore cluster across its three data centers, providing 100 TB of storage capacity. Looking forward, HyperStore provides the flexibility to add extra capacity when required without any service interruption, ensuring that Teletek will always be able to meet its customers’ evolving data storage needs.

“This is just the latest example of how VMware and Cloudian are enabling our Cloud Provider partners to enhance their service offerings, deliver greater value to customers and help grow their business,” said Rajeev Bhardwaj, vice president of products, Cloud Service Business Unit, at VMware. “We look forward to working with Teletek and Cloudian to help enterprises drive their digital transformations more quickly and cost-effectively.”

New capabilities deliver sensitive content management, built-in compliance and end-to-end visibility without sacrificing M365 functionality

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Apr. 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egnyte, the unified content security, compliance, and collaboration solution for multicloud businesses, today announced new integrations with Microsoft aimed at helping mid-sized organizations prevent data loss, address a growing number of regional privacy regulations, and simplify the overall management of content, with minimal administrative overhead.

“Our employees love using Microsoft 365 but with the multiple applications, including Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, and desktop applications, we find it increasingly difficult to manage and secure all of our content,” said Tony Schwingel, Director of IT Service Delivery at Brookfield Properties. “With Egnyte we gain greater insight across how our content is being accessed and used, as well as the ability to establish and enforce consistent governance across all of our Microsoft applications.”

“Accelerated by the rapid shifts to remote work, Microsoft’s cloud suite, increasingly front-ended by Microsoft Teams, is now pervasive among organizations of all sizes, which has introduced new and unfamiliar risks,” said Rajesh Ram, Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer of Egnyte. “Mid-sized organizations, in particular, struggle to implement the various compliance, security and privacy tools that Microsoft offers as add-on options to its service. The complexity challenges are particularly acute in regulated industries, such as financial services and healthcare.”

Egnyte launched a series of integrations with Microsoft Teams in 2020. Today’s announcements cover the other most popular aspects of Microsoft 365, specifically:

  • Exchange Online/Outlook: automatically identify and classify sensitive content in Microsoft Exchange Online emails and attachments to help prevent improper disclosure or accidental data loss.
  • SharePoint and OneDrive: classify and find regulated and sensitive content sprawled across different SharePoint and OneDrive libraries through a “single pane of glass.”
  • Word, Excel, PowerPoint: business users can now access and co-edit files using the respective Microsoft desktop apps while their IT and security teams govern the data through Egnyte, creating a “best of both worlds” experience.

In addition to these announcements pertaining to Microsoft 365, Egnyte is also announcing general availability of a new Public Cloud Connector to synchronize selected files between Egnyte and Microsoft Azure object storage. Previously in closed beta, this connector is being used in live deployments to support virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments, cloud data processing, cloud archiving, and more.

About Egnyte
Egnyte provides one unified platform to govern and gain insight into business content on any app, any device, anywhere. More than 16,000 businesses trust Egnyte to empower distributed teams, protect business-critical data and reduce file-sharing cost and complexity.

Native Solution Offers Faster Deployment, Easier Management, and Improved Backup Performance

Reston, Virginia – April 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Infrascale today announced the general availability of an upgrade to the agentless backup engine for Infrascale Backup and Disaster Recovery. In addition to existing agentless backup for VMware virtual machines (VMs), the backup engine now allows Microsoft-centric MSPs to benefit from native discovery, policy control, and backup of Hyper-V VMs. The new agentless version provides fast deployments via discovery and policy control, easier management with one-stop configuration, and improved performance over its agent-based predecessor. This announcement follows the recent launch of the company‘s next-generation backup and disaster recovery solution, Infrascale Backup and Disaster Recovery (IBDR).

IBDR is a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution: one part software/hardware on-premises with customers’ data and servers, (including Hyper-V VMs), and one part service infrastructure in the cloud. These components combine to prevent data loss and minimize downtime.

“Microsoft serves as the backbone technology stack for most of our MSP partners. We built IBDR and our new backup engine for Hyper-V to integrate seamlessly, giving our partners and their end customers the best possible user experience and flawless DR performance,” said Russell P. Reeder, CEO of Infrascale.  “In addition to being faster to deploy and easier to manage over the previous version, backups are now three times faster!”

Whether supporting Hyper-V or VMware, the Infrascale agentless backup engine is a sub-system of IBDR that offers:

    • Native Discovery of VMs on the Hypervisor:
      • See a list of all VMs directly from the appliance dashboard
    • Setting of Policy Controls:
      • Protect some or all VMs managed by the hypervisor
      • Auto-protect new VMs as they are created by an administrator – without revisiting setup
      • Backup non-powered VMs
    • Backup and Recovery Fundamentals:
      • Capture full and incremental backups for use with Infrascale DDFS (deduplication file system) – storing backup data deduplicated, compressed, and securely encrypted
      • Convert incremental backups to a “synthetic full” – providing average two-minute boot-ready times
      • Restore/failback VMs directly to originating hypervisor from the failover appliance
      • Browse and restore individual files and folders from protected VMs

Agentless backup addresses two key pain points – the cost and complexity of deploying and managing per-server agents. With a single agentless configuration there is no need to touch each virtual machine, which enables faster deployment and easier management for MSPs and VARs.

A pre-release version of the Hyper-V agentless backup engine generated consistently positive customer reviews, calling out its ability to simplify management and lower costs.

“DivergeIT has been a Gold Microsoft Partner for 17 years.  Microsoft and Hyper-V are our core business, and our customers expect the best service and highest quality of data protection.  The Infrascale agentless support for Hyper-V is a godsend.  Following discovery on the host, all it takes is a couple clicks and the policy is set, and backup is on its way,” said Robert Praul, Technology Director, DivergeIT.  “The time saved by not having to deploy individual agents is priceless.  Now I can focus more of my time and energy on serving my customers directly and less on managing my DR solution.”

Infrascale is an award-winning provider, recommended by leading independent industry experts, MSPs/VARs, and their end customers.  With the introduction of the Infrascale native agentless backup engine for Hyper-V, Infrascale continues to innovate and to demonstrate its commitment to eliminate downtime and data loss.

Founded in 2011, Infrascale provides comprehensive, cloud-based data protection by delivering industry-leading backup and disaster recovery solutions.

SME is now in the ADN portfolio offering the DACH market the Enterprise File Fabric solution which unifies unstructured corporate data easily and efficiently, whether for public, private or hybrid cloud storage

LONDON, UK – April 13th 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — The new partnership between ADN and Storage Made Easy provides the DACH market with a secure and user-friendly way to consistently manage data in hybrid scenarios.

The Enterprise File Fabric solution from Storage Made Easy simplifies the management of data across an organisation’s entire storage landscape. The innovative solution enables efficient searching by indexing metadata from all contents of all file and object stores. Unifying cloud and on-premises infrastructures, it provides unified access to over 60 file and object storage solutions, including Windows, SAN, NAS, Amazon S3, Azure and Google Cloud. The metadata catalogue is kept up to date in real time, with access and control of old and new data assets from a single user-friendly interface that supports all major operating systems and integrates with Microsoft 365, including Microsoft Teams.

The focus is on the provision of multi-cloud content collaboration with strong cybersecurity and compliance requirements for the entire data pool of a company. It is irrelevant whether it is file block or object storage and whether it is on-site or in different cloud storage.

Jim Liddle, Founder & CEO of Storage Made Easy, sums up the potential for Companies previously unwilling to migrate to Cloud: “The File Fabric’s smart metadata makes it easier for companies to use existing data assets to migrate to the cloud.” Hermann Ramacher, Founder & Managing Director of ADN, has recognised the great potential and sees Storage Made Easy and the Enterprise File Fabric as a clear argument for partners to drive the cloudification of their medium-sized customers.

Storage Made Easy not only pays special attention to fast and smooth access to all relevant company data, regardless of where in the world it is stored, but also makes this possible regardless of the size of the content. One example here is media companies that benefit from the Enterprise File Fabric in-house file acceleration module M-Stream™. This module accelerates transfers of high-resolution image and video. This is why Storage Made Easy already counts on some of the largest broadcasters in the world, as well as international service providers in the healthcare sector among its customers.

This is why Storage Made Easy already counts on some of the largest broadcasters in the world, as well as international service providers in the healthcare sector among its customers.

Added value for the channel:
The starting point for the new partnership was the expansion of ADN’s collaboration with Cloudian, which has been in place since 2017. Storage Made Easy is already natively integrated into the private cloud solution of the manufacturer. Thanks to the new, direct collaboration between Storage Made Easy and ADN, the solution can now also unleash new synergies for other existing partners. In particular, ADN would like to scale the innovation into previous implementations of the Digital Workplace – e.g. based on Microsoft Azure. Combined with ADN’s highly successful cloud solution provider programme, this creates a market-penetrating clout, escorted by ADN’s multiple support, training and education offerings for the DACH region.

“ADN has always sought out the market potential of innovative best-of-breed solutions and understands how to best place them in the DACH market. Therefore, the partnership of ADN and Storage Made Easy is an ideal scenario for the DACH region. Here, the size of the distributor and the provider fits together perfectly”, states Achim von Montigny, Business Developer and mediator of the new partnership.

Jim Liddle, explains: “The Enterprise File Fabric™ is the last mile between object storage and application. And it’s instrumental to advancing digitalisation, because to date, over 80% of digital transformation projects have failed due to unreliable integration of siloed data.”

Hermann Ramacher, said: “Bye-bye document management! Thanks to Storage Made Easy and the Enterprise File Fabric, searching for a needle in a haystack is no longer a thankless Sisyphean task, but simple, fast and efficient. Searching now means finding!”

About Storage Made Easy (SME)
Storage Made Easy’s Enterprise File Fabric™ integrates file and object data into one single platform through a unified file system that works with on-premises and on-cloud data storage assets.

End users, whether local or remote, are able to access the unified file system using web scale protocols and clients that bridge desktop and cloud, but which provide familiar workflows to end users.

Cloud-like economics are provided across a company’s entire storage portfolio, unlocking the benefits and cost-efficiency of its data assets whilst providing strict controls and governance for legislative compliance, such as GDPR and CCPA, and addressing security concerns such as ransomware attacks.

The platform’s unique File Transfer acceleration technology M-Stream®, speeds up the transfer of files from desktop to storage, storage to desktop or even public cloud to public cloud, enhancing user productivity and providing ROI on latency sensitive workflows.

The company is backed by Moore Strategic Ventures, LLC, the private investment vehicle of Louis M. Bacon, in addition to other private shareholders including London-based entrepreneurs who previously successfully exited their businesses to larger industry peers.

Storage Made Easy is the trading name of Vehera LTD.

SoftIron + Co. Will Expand Channel Access to Open Source Enterprise Data Center Solutions

LONDON, UK – April 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — SoftIron Ltd., the leader in purpose-built and performance-optimized data center solutions, today announced the launch of its global channel partner program, SoftIron + Co. The new program aims to build an elite, world-class community of profitable, successful channel partners to accelerate SoftIron’s market share growth through unique business value that expand reseller capabilities and offerings.

The SoftIron + Co. program will give channel partners the ability to differentiate themselves by expanding their access to SoftIron’s fully integrated, open source-based data center solutions and services. SoftIron resellers will be able to offer powerful, open source technology, such as Ceph, in hardware packages uniquely built through a task-specific approach that enables levels of performance and efficiency that isn’t common with commodity hardware.

“The results of SoftIron’s unique ‘designed, not assembled’ approach to manufacturing enterprise data center solutions, is a highly integrated, truly differentiated offering that tackles the needs of the perpetually-scaling data center,” said Phil Crocker, VP Business Development and Channel at SoftIron. “As organizations grapple with the challenges of scaling their IT operations, they become even more interested in open source solutions that eliminate vendor lock-in and give them more control. SoftIron’s partners will be able to capitalize on the growing opportunity created by the rise in demand for supported, enterprise-class open source technologies like Ceph. By partnering with SoftIron in 2021, partners will be putting themselves in the best position possible to inherit success.”

SoftIron, known for its HyperDrive® software-defined storage portfolio, distinguishes itself by offering appliances that are task-specific, meaning they are hardware-optimized around their open source cores, such as Ceph. Rather than the traditional method of using commodity, off-the-shelf hardware and optimizing the software to try to eliminate bottlenecks, SoftIron has designed the hardware around the needs of the operating source code, delivering unparalleled performance, control and support. SoftIron offers its customers peace of mind through a unique “Secure Provenance” manufacturing approach, assuring integrity and transparency of product realization through its own component-level manufacturing capability.

“As open-source architectures for data-centric computing increasingly takes center-stage, it’s refreshing to see SoftIron take full ownership for delivering task-specific Ceph storage appliances that are purpose-built for enterprise scale-out storage,” says Earl J. Dodd HPC & HPDA Architect, Alchemist and Business Practice Leader at World Wide Technology. “Government agencies, including the US armed forces, appreciate the reliability, manageability and low-energy consumption of HyperDrive, backed with a unique Secure Provenance guarantee. We are delighted to partner with SoftIron to help the United States Air Force leverage the power of HyperDrive for critical analysis of aircraft mission data. With the advent of SoftIron + Co, we’re looking forward to future engagements.”

“After a rigorous review of storage options in the market, we elected to get in touch with SoftIron, since we feel the market needs to move away from the monolithic approaches of old,” said Tim Sterckx, Partner and Co-founder of Belgium-based reseller Aryx. “Their channel team has been exceptionally responsive. We feel we are building something pretty special and differentiated together as we launch our company and they launch SoftIron + Co. After a short few weeks, we’re already partnering in some interesting engagements in the Benelux and planning co-marketing campaigns together. We’re closely aligned in our approach and our mutual momentum is already building.”

“Megware has been in the business of successfully providing HPC solutions and Linux clusters to research institutes, universities, and industrial and commercial customers throughout Europe for over 30 years. With open-source platforms now commonplace within the data center, it’s exciting for us to be partnering with SoftIron as they launch their new partner program,” said Tobias Pfennig, Sales Director HPC at MEGWARE Computer Vertrieb und Service GmbH. “It’s really great to see the innovation they are bringing to customers, especially in the era of Green IT when total cost of ownership is a large consideration. We see a lot of opportunity to partner together and offer something really differentiated to our customers. We are particularly impressed that they have recently established a Berlin-based manufacturing facility to serve our mutual customers across Europe.”

“We have a unique and strategic partnership with SoftIron,” said Raj Krishnan Director of UpCenter Technologies. “We provide managed services for an eclectic group of customers across Asia and North America – from Malaysia to India and the US. We are both a customer and a reseller of SoftIron appliances, having identified how well they fit with the challenges we face in the region to deliver highly performant, resilient, yet efficient solutions. Our relationship is a close one already and we see significant benefits being provided under the auspices of their new SoftIron + Co partner program as we pursue our mutual customers.”

  • The fourth acquisition in the past six months
  • The services acquired allow the company to expand and optimize solutions to ensure cybersecurity and business continuity if disaster strikes
  • Via this new transaction, Gigas strengthens its strategy of offering turnkey services for telecommunications, cloud services and cybersecurity to companies

MADRID, Spain – April 13, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Gigas — a Spanish multinational specialized in converged telecommunications services, IT and cloud services for companies — has announced its acquisition of ValoraData’s backup unit and disaster recovery support for 2.3 million Euros.

Payment will be made in two installments: the first, upon signing, will be in cash and corresponds to 75% of the transaction; the second payment, also in cash, will correspond to the remaining 25% and will be made in 12 months later.

The unit acquired manages the backup of servers and workstations, both in the cloud as well as for on-premise hybrid backup structures. Thanks to this acquisition, Gigas has increased its client portfolio by some 300 companies, most of which are medium sized, and are perfectly in line with the profile of its target clients. Furthermore, Gigas’ technical and sales team has grown thanks to the incorporation of 14 professionals specialized in backup and business continuity.

“In response to growing digitalization, backup services have become more and more essential for protecting companies from disasters and cyberattacks, ensuring the constant safety of data as well as the efficient management and continuity of business,” stresses Diego Cabezudo, CEO and co-founder of Gigas.

“This acquisition, which is a great complement to the services already offered by Gigas, strengthens our strategy for offering turnkey cloud, telecommunications and cybersecurity services. It allows the companies in countries where we operate to turn to a single provider to resolve all kinds of issues that can arise in a highly digitalized environment,” adds Cabezudo.

The unit acquired from Valoradata had a turnover of 1.62 million in 2020 and obtained an EBITDA of 426,000 Euros. The company has its own backup platform in two external datacenters and, with the migration of said platform to Gigas, the aim is to achieve synergies so that in 2021 the EBITDA will be significantly higher.

This transaction with Valoradata is Gigas’ fourth acquisition in the past six months. At the end of March, Gigas also announced its acquisition of Oni, a leading Portuguese telecommunications provider. Oni currently offers telecommunications, cloud and security services to some 1,100 clients, and had a turnover of 32.2 million Euros in 2020.

Today, Gigas has around 10,000 clients and over 300 employees.

Total Economic Impact™ study finds Datto’s integrated BCDR, PSA, and RMM tools are key drivers for productivity, enabling MSPs to support more businesses

NORWALK, Conn. – April 13, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Datto Holding Corp. (“Datto”) (NYSE:MSP), the leading global provider of cloud-based software and security solutions purpose-built for delivery by managed service providers (MSPs), today announced the findings of a new commissioned study by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Datto that reveals MSPs using Datto’s integrated solutions increased employee bandwidth to support more small and medium business (SMB) clients which led to an average of over $100,000 in business growth annually.

The new study, The Total Economic Impact™ of Datto, — https://www.datto.com/c/forrester-total-economic-impact-report — concluded that MSPs using Datto’s integrated Unified Continuity, Autotask PSA and Datto RMM solutions may realize approximately $792,000 in benefits, including improved productivity on work orders by 50%, and 90% reduced productivity losses resulting from downtime incidents. In addition, Datto’s integrated solutions yielded an average return on investment (ROI) of 256% within a three year period, with the platform paying for itself in less than six months.

“Last year MSPs had their hands full helping clients transition to work from home and a variety of cloud solutions,” said Matt Richards, Chief Marketing Officer at Datto. “This year, the pressure on MSPs continues as digital transformation and recovery drives SMBs to further rely on technology every day. Datto focuses on MSPs and their clients, developing open and secure products that integrate and save our partners time.”

One Datto partner, CEO of an MSP based in North America, told Forrester: “If you don’t have an integrated system, [PSA, RMM and BCDR services] it requires you to have a full-time advocate for every customer to understand their technology and how to best service it. With Datto, any one of my team can play that role with any one of our customers because the data is rich, integrated, and thorough.”

Datto commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct the Total Economic Impact™ study to examine the potential ROI that MSPs may realize by partnering with Datto. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed decision-makers at MSPs around the world that leverage Datto. The MSP decision-makers recognized that inefficiencies with their prior technology services inhibited them from improving service levels for clients and growing their client base as a whole. They needed a technology provider that delivered secure and reliable business continuity and disaster recovery while providing an efficient platform to manage their MSP business and client service delivery.

In addition to achieving improved BCDR (Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery) postures and tightened security protocols, MSPs who participated in the study reported the following gains achieved by using Datto’s integrated solutions:

  • Achieved over $100K in additional average client base growth annually
  • Recaptured roughly $50K annually from improved billing tracking
  • Reduced productivity losses resulting from downtime incidents by 90%
  • Increased speed of resolving work order tickets by 50%
  • Experienced additional annual uptime 1,000+ hours

The complete “Total Economic Impact of Datto” study is available for download here — https://www.datto.com/c/forrester-total-economic-impact-report

As the world’s leading provider of cloud-based software and security solutions purpose-built for delivery by managed service providers (MSPs), Datto believes there is no limit to what small and medium businesses (SMBs) can achieve with the right technology. Datto’s proven Unified Continuity, Networking, and Business Management solutions drive cyber resilience, efficiency, and growth for MSPs.

Over 70% Competitive Win Rate in the Upper Mid-market to the Enterprise

Marlborough, Mass. – April 13, 2021  — /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that it had an all-time record bookings and revenue in the quarter ending March 31, 2021. As compared to Q1-2020, bookings grew over 40% and revenue grew at 24%. In addition, ExaGrid was cash positive in the quarter. ExaGrid added over 120 new customers in the quarter, and now more than 3,000 customers use ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage to protect their data.  ExaGrid’s growth is accelerating, and the company is hiring 40 additional inside and field sales staff worldwide.

ExaGrid’s Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature is among the many reasons customers are choosing ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage. “Ransomware attacks have been on the rise and are top of mind at many organizations. ExaGrid saw this trend and realized we could build upon our already secure architecture with an approach that would allow for recovery of data after a ransomware attack. ExaGrid has the only backup storage solution with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable data objects,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid. “In just three months, ExaGrid has upgraded over 1,000 customers to Version 6.0 and all of those customers have the Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature turned on.”

ExaGrid appliances have a network-facing disk-cache Landing Zone where the most recent backups are written without inline deduplication for fast backups and are stored in an undeduplicated format for fast restores. ExaGrid uses scale-out architecture, which maintains a fixed-length backup window and also eliminates expensive and disruptive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid’s Adaptive Deduplication technology deduplicates the data into a non-network-facing repository where deduplicated data is stored for longer-term retention, often for weeks, months and years. The combination of a non-network-facing tier (virtual air gap) plus delayed deletes with ExaGrid’s Retention Time-Lock feature, and immutable data objects, guards against the backup data being deleted or encrypted.

Highlights of Q1-2021:

  • Strong competitive win rate at 75%
  • Brought on over 120 new customers
  • Record sales in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa)
  • Over 1,000 customers upgraded to Version 6.0 with Retention-Time Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature turned on
  • More than 3,000 customers protect their data with ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage

ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage – Built for Backup
“ExaGrid is the only company that is completely dedicated to backup storage, which is why our Tiered Backup Storage system outperforms our competitors during pilot tests. We continue to replace low-cost primary storage disk from Dell, HPE, and NTAP and many other storage vendors, as ExaGrid is far less expensive for longer-term retention. We also consistently replace first-generation backup storage solutions like Dell EMC Data Domain, HPE StoreOnce, and Veritas inline scale-up deduplication appliances that don’t provide the backup performance or evergreen architecture that ExaGrid offers,” Andrews said. “ExaGrid sits behind more than 25 backup applications and utilities, and provides the fastest and most cost-efficient backup storage in the industry, and is now the only backup storage solution that can truly provide ransomware recovery with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable objects.”

ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a front-end disk-cache Landing Zone, the Performance Tier, which writes data directly to disk for the fastest backups, and restores directly from disk for the fastest restores and VM boots. The long-term retention data is tiered to a deduplicated data repository, the Retention Tier, to reduce the amount of retention storage and resulting cost. This two-tiered approach provides the fastest backup and restore performance with lowest cost storage efficiency.

In addition, ExaGrid provides a scale-out architecture where appliances are simply added as data grows. Each appliance includes processor, memory and network ports, so as data grows, all resources required are available to maintain a fixed-length backup window. This scale-out storage approach eliminates expensive forklift upgrades, and allows for mixing appliances of different sizes and models in the same scale-out system, which eliminates product obsolescence while protecting IT investments up front and over time.

About ExaGrid
ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a unique disk-cache Landing Zone, long-term retention repository, and scale-out architecture. ExaGrid’s Landing Zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. The retention repository offers the lowest cost for long-term retention. ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture includes full appliances and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid offers the only two-tiered backup storage approach with a non-network facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable objects to recover from ransomware attacks.  Visit us at exagrid.com or connect with us on LinkedIn.

Strong And Supportive Workplace Culture Places The Egnyte Engineering Team Among The Top 50 In The U.S.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Apr. 13, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egnyte, the leader in cloud content collaboration and governance, today announced it has been recognized with a 2021 Comparably Award for Best Engineering Teams. The Comparably Awards are based on anonymous employee sentiment rankings across nearly 20 different workplace culture categories, from compensation, leadership, and co-workers to work-life balance, professional development opportunities, perks and benefits.

Rated by Comparably as having built one of the top 50 engineering teams in the country, Egnyte prioritizes a culture where commitment to technical excellence and innovation is matched by a workplace environment that values teamwork, wellbeing and career development. Comparably Award ratings were given during the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020 through March 2021).

“Being recognized with a Comparably award is very important for our engineering team, but also to the wider Egnyte organization as a whole, who all work extremely hard to bring our shared values to life,” commented Tal Broner, Vice President of Engineering at Egnyte. “As a business, we believe that a supportive, positive workplace culture is central to our ability to innovate and to help our customers succeed, and we’ll continue to invest time and energy to strengthen it further.”

“The recognition that comes from a Comparably Award is important because it relies on the experiences and insight of a key set of stakeholders – the employees themselves,” said Jason Nazar, CEO of Comparably. “Appearing in the top 50 list for engineering teams underlines the collective commitment required to build a group motivated to deliver on its values, and is an achievement to be proud of.”

Proven, high-performance, scalable solution at half the cost of leading public cloud alternatives

READING, UK – April 13, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — DataCore Software today announced global availability of DataCore™ Swarm object storage software. Swarm is now available through hundreds of channel partners worldwide, completing the company’s portfolio of best-of-breed software-defined storage solutions for block, file, and object—from a single vendor, with award-winning customer support.

DataCore™ Swarm object storage software was designed from the ground up to securely manage billions of files and petabytes of information. It provides a foundation for hyperscale data storage, access, and analysis, while guaranteeing data integrity and eliminating hardware dependencies. Leading enterprises such as BT, Department of Defense, Disney Streaming Services, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Argonne National Labs, and hundreds more worldwide use Swarm to efficiently manage rapidly scaling data sets.

“We have relied on Swarm object storage for many years to ensure the millions of videos and petabytes of data we collect are searchable and instantly accessible,” said Ken Przywara, director of infrastructure at Kinetiq. “At that scale, hardware failure is inevitable, and even when issues occur, Swarm has enabled us to single handedly keep our television intelligence network data available in a cost-effective way.”

DataCore™ Swarm can be used for primary storage of multimedia files including terabyte-sized video, which can be streamed directly from the object store or clipped to make smaller videos for efficient sharing and collaboration. Applications can also store data such as medical records, backups, or archive data directly to Swarm using an S3-compatible API, or standard NFS/SMB file protocols. Cold and warm data from Windows File Server, NetApp, and Dell EMC Isilon can be transparently migrated to lower-cost object storage in Swarm without impacting end users or applications. Additionally, advanced metadata and search capabilities simplify management of billions of files while multi-tenancy makes it ideal for service providers or for central IT departments providing storage-as-a-service to business units across the world.

“Enterprises are moving in the direction of software-defined storage as customers come to understand the flexibility, ease of use and economic benefits that approach brings to the table relative to more hardware-defined approaches,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group at IDC. “In the wake of its acquisition of Caringo, DataCore now brings a comprehensive software-defined storage platform, supporting block, file and object storage, to the table under a simple fixed price per terabyte licensing approach. Many customers can appreciate the value proposition this offers to administrators that need to manage all three data types.”

DataCore™ Swarm simplifies long term retention with WORM capabilities and enables high-performance throughput workloads such as HPC workflows. It brings the benefits of the cloud (hassle-free administration, economics, and scale) to the data centre, enabling enterprises to have an on-premise solution that performs like a private cloud—at less than half the cost of many public cloud alternatives.

In addition to the standard infrastructure management features available in most object storage solutions, Swarm is designed to:

  • Eliminate complexity and streamline deployment through highly efficient software that runs on any mix of commodity hardware
  • Meet most unstructured data workloads with scalable performance through a symmetric architecture that is self-healing and self-managing
  • Ensure data availability by combining policy-based protection with rapid, proactive rebuild and recovery
  • Provide instant access to content through a web portal for administrators and end users that includes search and the ability to customise metadata
  • Easily enable distributed workflows with robust web-based multi-tenant management, integrated data replication and backup/disaster recovery to any S3 enabled service or device
  • Scale easily and linearly from terabytes to hundreds of petabytes with low administration
  • Provide intelligent data management for content access, delivery, and archive

DataCore also now offers attractive pay-as-you-go pricing for hosted, cloud, and managed service providers, as well as new term licensing options for Swarm. Swarm complements DataCore’s leading software-defined storage portfolio including vFilO™ and DataCore™ SANsymphony™ software. vFilO is a next-generation global file system for distributed sites and hybrid clouds designed to help enterprises organise, optimise, and control large volumes of data. SANsymphony delivers the benefits of hardware independence, flexibility, availability, performance, efficiency and cost savings for block-based storage.

“Our global clientele, across all markets, are facing growing challenges in rapidly scaling media libraries that must be protected and instantly accessible,” said Liz Davis, vice president of Media Workflow Group, Diversified. “These clients count on us to deliver trusted and innovative digital media solutions to meet their needs. Swarm object storage is the solution we recommend because it is a best-of breed technology that has been proven at scale and is now backed by DataCore’s commitment to the channel and the support they bring to solutions integrators like us.”

About DataCore
DataCore Software delivers the industry’s most flexible, intelligent, and powerful software-defined storage solutions for block, file and object storage, helping more than 10,000 customers worldwide modernize how they store, protect, and access data. The company’s comprehensive product suite, intellectual property portfolio, and its unrivaled experience in storage virtualization and advanced data services, position DataCore as the authority on software-defined storage.

Company Intends to Repurchase Up to $500 Million of Common Stock Through Self-Tender Offer

KKR’s Head of Americas Technology Private Equity, John Park, to Join Box Board

REDWOOD CITY, CA – April 08, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), the leading Content Cloud, and KKR, a leading global investment firm, today announced an agreement for KKR funds to lead a $500 million investment in the company in the form of convertible preferred stock. The investment from KKR will advance the company’s strategy to deliver the Box Content Cloud and enable customers to modernize how they work and drive digital transformation throughout their organizations.

Box anticipates using substantially all of the proceeds to fund a share repurchase through a “Dutch auction” self-tender of up to $500 million of its common stock, with specific amount and pricing of the self-tender to be determined based on market conditions and stock prices at the time when the self-tender is launched. The self-tender is expected to commence after Box releases its fiscal first quarter financial results in May 2021. Further details on the self-tender will be included in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) at the time of its commencement.

“The investment from KKR is a strong vote of confidence in our vision, strategy, and continued efforts to increase growth and profitability,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “KKR is one of the world’s leading technology investors with a deep understanding of our market and a proven track record of partnering successfully with companies to create value and drive growth. With their support, we will be even better positioned to build on Box’s leadership in cloud content management as we continue to deliver value for our customers around the world.”

“We are pleased to establish this relationship with KKR and bring their team’s expertise to Box at this important time in the company’s evolution,” said Dana Evan, Lead Independent Director of Box Board of Directors. “Our Board has been focused on ways to support and accelerate the company’s strategy while driving shareholder value. After undertaking a comprehensive review of a wide range of strategic options, the Board unanimously determined that continuing to execute Box’s long-term strategy in combination with a significant share repurchase and the support of KKR, is the optimal path to drive the company’s next phase of growth.”

Continued Evolution of the Board of Directors and Strengthened Corporate Governance
Upon closing of the transaction, John Park, Head of Americas Technology Private Equity at KKR, will join Box’s Board of Directors. With this addition, Box’s Board will be expanded to ten directors.

Mr. Levie continued, “We are thrilled to welcome John, a highly respected voice in the technology industry, to the Board. John brings substantial experience advising and supporting software and other technology companies with a focus on the cloud. We look forward to adding his expertise to our Board as Box continues innovating and transforming how enterprises work in the digital age.”

“Box has a highly differentiated product platform with a customer-centric vision that makes it an ideal investment for KKR,” said Mr. Park. “Under Aaron’s leadership, Box has been transforming and simplifying how people and businesses work, and I look forward to working closely with him, Box’s Board and the broader leadership team to support the company in its next stage of growth.”

Box also announced today that current director Bethany Mayer will be appointed as Chair of the Board of Directors, effective May 1, 2021. Ms. Mayer joined the Box Board in April 2020 as an independent director. Ms. Mayer brings more than 30 years of strategic leadership experience driving growth for technology companies, including operating roles as former CEO of Ixia, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Networking Business Unit at Hewlett Packard, and Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Alliances at Blue Coat Systems. Current Board Chair and Box CEO Aaron Levie will remain on the Box Board of Directors.

“As we continue to evolve our Board and adopt best-in-class corporate governance practices, we are pleased to name Bethany as Chair,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “Bethany’s deep technology experience scaling multi-billion-dollar enterprise businesses at various stages and sizes has been incredibly valuable to me and the entire Board. We’re looking forward to working with her in this new role.”

“Box has pioneered cloud content management and I believe we have the right strategy and right team in place to further cement our leadership position in the market by driving growth, operational efficiency, and shareholder value,” said Bethany Mayer. “I’m thrilled to take on the role of Board Chair and to continue to work closely with Aaron and the rest of the Board as we lead the company forward.”

Advancing the Box Content Cloud and Driving Next Phase of Growth
Box today reaffirmed its vision to deliver the Content Cloud and drive profitable growth. Bolstered by the support of KKR, the company is focused on advancing its land-and-expand strategy to generate growth from new and existing customers while driving continued demand for its advanced product capabilities and adoption of Box Suites. To further open up new areas for growth and innovation, the company is growing its product portfolio and expanding its presence in key international markets.

To accelerate its strategy Box has expanded into new market adjacencies like e-signatures with Box Sign, the new e-signature capability that will be natively embedded in Box, while also continuing to double down on product areas like Box Shield and Box Governance for advanced security and compliance, and Box Relay for workflow automation. Box also continues to cultivate strong partnerships with leading technology companies and system integrators, including IBM, Google, Salesforce, Slack, Zoom, Cisco Okta, and Microsoft, to ensure it is delivering its Content Cloud to customers at scale.

As previously announced, Box is committed to achieving a revenue growth rate between 12-16%, with operating margins of between 23-27%, by fiscal 2024. Box remains confident in its ability to achieve these results based on the customer momentum underway, as well as the company’s product roadmap and the total addressable market opportunity ahead.

Investment Terms
KKR will lead the purchase of $500 million of convertible preferred stock. The preferred stock will be convertible into shares of Box common stock at a conversion price of $27.00 per share. In the event that the 10-day volume-weighted average price, or VWAP, ending April 21, 2021 is less than a threshold price of $20.77 per share, the conversion price will be proportionately adjusted downward from $27.00. Any downward adjustment will maintain the same ratio of conversion price to 10-day VWAP as the unadjusted conversion price to such threshold price, subject to a minimum conversion price of $24.00 per share. The investment from KKR is being made through certain of its investment funds.

The preferred stock carries a 3% dividend, which will be payable in kind or in cash, at Box’s election. On an as-converted basis, the preferred stock will represent approximately 11% of Box’s shares outstanding after giving effect to the investment and before any share repurchases.

The preferred stock can be converted into common stock at any time, and Box may be required to redeem the preferred stock after seven years.

Conversely, Box can require conversion into common stock after three years if the stock price exceeds certain thresholds and can redeem the preferred stock after five years, subject to a call schedule.

Consummation of this investment is subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Box currently expects the investment to close in May 2021.

Further details will be included in a Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC in due course.

The Town of DeWitt chooses NAKIVO Backup & Replication to ensure continuous protection of the entire infrastructure with VM backup and Windows Server backup

Sparks, NV – April 12, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that the Town of DeWitt has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

The Town of DeWitt is a town in Onondaga County, New York, USA. As of 2018, the town has a population of over 25,000 residents. The town is named after Major Moses DeWitt, who was a judge and a soldier. The Town of DeWitt is fortunate to have a prominent location in New York State. Industry and commerce have settled here due to the accessible transportation options of a regional airport, rail yards, the Route 90 east-west Thruway, north-south Route 81, and its proximity to Canada.

NetManageIT is a managed service provider (MSP) in the central New York area that has been servicing customers for over 25 years. The company has many municipal customers and is experienced in managing and servicing such customers. Dan Bender, a CTO at NetManagetIT, is the Lead Engineer who has been servicing the Town of DeWitt since 2011. The town’s infrastructure consists of two Microsoft Hyper-V hosts, one physical server for the police department, and ten virtual machines. Virtual machines store a wide variety of data and applications, including the main file server, a Linux server for archival purposes, a Microsoft Exchange server, a Microsoft SQL server for municipal applications, a terminal server, a monitoring server, and an application server running various apps. Governmental operations and the police department must be available 24/7, and the town must have a reliable disaster recovery solution. If systems are unavailable, the town will not be able to service the residents properly.

Previously, the Town of DeWitt relied on services of another VM backup and disaster recovery solution. Although the product’s performance was adequate for the town, the biggest disadvantage was the lack of backup support for physical servers and workstations. Developers had been working on adding this functionality for over a year, but progress was slow, and the product contained multiple bugs. Initially, the bar was set high because the previous product provided ease-of-use and good pricing. However, NAKIVO Backup & Replication turned out to be an excellent alternative for the Town of DeWitt. NAKIVO Backup & Replication proved to be more affordable and provided support for backup of physical servers and workstations.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs native, image-based, incremental, and application-aware backups for VMware, Hyper-V, Amazon EC2, Nutanix AHV environments, and for Windows/Linux physical servers and workstations. Moreover, the product offers SaaS backup for Microsoft Office 365. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides granular recovery of files and application objects, recovery of full VMs, and instant recovery of physical machines from backups as VMware VMs.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers flexibility in installation options, as the product can be installed on Windows/Linux, deployed as a pre-configured virtual appliance, or installed on NAS devices. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication is one of the easiest products in terms of installation and usability, and I have used a bunch of major players in the same industry. There was a learning curve, but nothing drastic at all. We appreciate the flexibility of the numerous hardware platforms and methods to deploy the product. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is lightweight and does not take numerous resources,” says Dan.

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, the Town of DeWitt has physical backup capabilities and virtual backup capabilities in one solution. “We stagger all our backup jobs onsite and offsite to spread the load. We back up critical servers every few hours, and all offsite backup copy jobs are done nightly during non-business hours to reduce the load on the internet pipe. Global deduplication has been great, as we managed to save local and offsite storage space. With that, we reduced our storage costs, and that helped us immensely,” says Dan.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows the Town of DeWitt to perform seamless Windows Server backup, ensuring consistency of all applications and databases. Moreover, the product protects data stored on desktops and laptops. NAKIVO Backup & Replication features support for physical machines that allows organizations to perform backups of Windows 10-based PCs. Backup copy functionality allows the Town of DeWitt to have an extra copy of backups at an offsite location. With the product, you can copy backups from one backup repository to another without touching the source hosts or virtual machines.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides the Town of DeWitt with ease-of-use, an affordable pricing model, virtual and physical backups under one roof. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, the town can back up critical virtual machines as well as physical servers and workstations. With global data deduplication, the town saved storage space and reduced storage costs. With backup copy functionality, the town can create and maintain copies of backups offsite. “With our previous product, we could not back up our physical servers and workstations. The biggest immediate benefit is that now we can back up our entire infrastructure with one solution. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we not only keep public services running but also save a couple of thousand dollars per year,” says Dan.

Residents of DeWitt have excellent public and private education choices at all levels, from preschool programs through post-graduate studies. The town also maintains 13 parks and green spaces, with many of the trails available for year-round activities. For more information, visit www.townofdewitt.com

BOSTON, MA – April 12, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Wasabi, the Hot Cloud Storage Company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Wasabi to its second annual Storage 100 list. The Storage 100 list recognizes industry-leading storage vendors that provide transformative products and services.

Businesses are creating and consuming more data than ever before. With growing trends such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things driving the creation of more and more data, the need for technology on which to build versatile and durable storage solutions will continue to increase.

Chosen by a panel of respected CRN® editors, the companies included in the 2021 Storage 100 list were selected for their perseverance in pushing the boundaries of innovation through cutting-edge technology and strategic partnerships. The list itself is a valuable resource for solution providers looking to find vendors that can support them in a complex storage market with industry-leading storage offerings in areas such as software-defined storage, data protection, data management, and storage components.

Wasabi is 1/5th the price of Amazon S3 and earned a spot on the highly coveted list for its disruptive pricing. There are two simple pricing models that channel partners can leverage to resell Wasabi. These options include a pay-as-you-go object storage model where partners charge only for what their customers use or Wasabi’s Reserved Capacity Storage that allows resellers to sell specific amounts of object storage for 1, 3, or 5 years at a fixed price. Both pricing models offer partners the opportunity to earn margins while offering their customers a simple predictable service since there are no fees for egress or API requests with Wasabi.

Wasabi was also recognized for its commitment to its growing channel community of more than 4,800 partners and its simple and predictable pricing model. These achievements helped Wasabi experience record growth in 2020, including expanding its total storage by 150%, growing revenue by more than 3 times over 2019 and increasing its customer base to more than 21,000.

“Much of Wasabi’s success can be attributed to two main things – our ability to provide simple, affordable and high-performing cloud storage and the expansion of our channel program into a thriving ecosystem,” said Laurie Mitchell, VP of Partner and International Marketing at Wasabi. “Our priority is to empower partners to reduce their costs. We truly take pride in being the easiest cloud storage provider to work within the industry. This acknowledgment from CRN is a testament to the strength of our channel program and the incredible results our partners experience on a regular basis.”

“The 2021 CRN® Storage 100 list recognizes the leading vendors that are delivering transformative advancements in storage technology and bringing the building blocks of modern solutions to solution providers,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to acknowledge the vendors featured in this year’s Storage 100 list and congratulate them for their investments in R&D, engineering, and innovation.”

The CRN® Storage 100 list will be featured in the April 2021 issue of CRN® Magazine and online at www.crn.com/storage100

  • Tecala to land technical support specialisation
  • RASP partners receive the same training as Rubrik’s level 3 engineers

SYDNEY, Australia – April 12, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Sydney-based consultancy Tecala has become the first Asia Pacific partner to land Rubrik’s Authorised Support Partner (RASP) specialisation.

First launched in the US and Europe in 2019, the specialisation recognises partners which demonstrate a track record in delivering level 1 and level 2 technical support, the data management vendor claimed.

In order to achieve the specialisation, Tecala had to complete both levels of certification for technical support. Now, having gained the specialisation, it will receive the same training as the vendor’s own level 3 engineers.

The main purpose of the RASP is for the partner to act as the first point of call for joint Rubrik customers with troubleshooting issues.

“As a RASP partner, Tecala can further differentiate itself and grow its Rubrik business by offering customers increased flexibility in the type of support and services they receive,” Rubrik said in a statement.

Tecala has been a Rubrik partner since 2018 and in that time has deployed the vendor’s data recovery and governance solutions for Greencross, Lugis, and George and Matilda Eyecare.

“We’re excited that our exceptional skills and experience have been recognised with the RASP specialisation,” said Pieter DeGunst, managing director at Tecala.

“This is testimony to our capabilities and successful working relationships with vendors such as Rubrik which entrust Tecala as a safe pair of hands to deliver robust cloud infrastructure and a great customer experience.”

The news follows Tecala’s signing of a new partnership with Forum Group that will see the two managed service companies exchange services, dipping into the talent pool between the two.
