Service Providers gain more from their cloud backup service using Microsoft’s flexible and scalable cloud platform.
Amsterdam, the Netherlands, March 14, 2013 – /BackupReview.info/ — As the ongoing battle for lowering storage costs continues, the leading provider of cloud backup software for service providers BackupAgent announces its integration with Microsoft’s Windows Azure. With this new major feature the company enables service providers of all shapes and sizes to stay competitive in the cloud backup market.
The integration is twofold; the BackupAgent Cloud Backup Platform – including the service management console – can be fully hosted in a high available (load balanced) setup on Windows Azure Virtual Machines. Apart from the savings on hardware investments, this configuration makes it incredibly easy to manage resources and ensures optimal service during backup peak hours. The other part of the integration is the storage of backup data that can be outsourced to the Windows Azure storage platform. One of the great benefits is that this fits perfectly in BackupAgent’s pay-as-you-grow philosophy; you always pay for what usage, no overhead. On the other hand it makes it very easy to store backups on multiple physical locations all over the world. This redundancy reduces latency and adds value to the backup proposition.
“This integration is a great asset for our Partners who are currently facing challenges in keeping their storage costs competitive. We see a great demand for this feature as backup data is growing more than ever,” says Roland Sars, CCO of BackupAgent. BackupAgent CTO, Robbert van Geldrop adds: “From all cloud platforms we have chosen for Windows Azure because it offers an excellent set of features to configure the platform and our Partners can have the best price for their storage. For this integration we have also made a lot of improvements on the storage of data, this is also beneficial for our Partners using their platform with local backup storage.”
The integration with Windows Azure will be presented on WorldHostingDays Global, in Rust, Germany on March 19th, by Roland Sars. In this presentation he will cover the different setup scenarios.
