SANTA ANA, CA – January 27, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – Ingram Micro recently added the Acronis Backup as a Service (BaaS) solution to its Cloud Marketplace. Considering that backup and disaster recovery (BDR) is a core need for so many companies — not to mention the fact it’s many end users’ first step into cloud computing — this is a big deal for Ingram Micro’s reseller partners.

IT solution providers face multiple challenges when it comes to protecting their customers’ data. First, there’s the challenge of end users’ IT environments, which are becoming increasingly complex.
A recent article from IDC, titled “Complexity and Data Growth Driving Small and Medium-Sized Environments toward a New Generation of Data Protection” revealed that 48% of SMBs are using both virtual and physical systems in their data centers. Additionally, 54% of SMBs’ virtualized environments comprise more than one hypervisor and 67% of the virtualized environments comprise hypervisors from vendors other than Microsoft and VMware. What these complex environments lead to for many resellers is the need to use multiple backup tools to properly back up a customer’s entire IT environment.
Acronis Backup as a Service offers Ingram Micro’s partners an easy-to-use solution to this challenge. Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, Acronis Backup as a Service is a local and cloud backup and recovery managed service that offers file-based backups, physical image backups, and VM image-based backups within the same solution. Additionally, this Backup as a Service offering includes bare metal restore, supports multi-level security (e.g. AES 256 encryption, password protection, and SSL), and file- and machine-level recovery. Additionally, it supports Windows, Linux, VMware, and Hyper-V environments.
One other noteworthy differentiator of the Acronis Backup as a Service solution is that it’s now part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, an ecosystem of buyers, sellers and solutions that enables channel partners and professionals to purchase, provision, manage and invoice with confidence and ease. The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace removes the complexity in procurement, management, and support that is too often inherent in cloud technologies, and empowers partners to manage the complete end-customer subscription lifecycle from a single, automated platform provided and supported by Ingram Micro.
To build a strong, straightforward business case for your service, you need a solution with zero entry costs and offers pay-per-use scalability, so you can fully focus on margins. Acronis Backup as a Service provides just that — an integrated turnkey solution that allows IT solution providers to provide reliable backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions to their end customers at a competitive price.
