LOS ANGELES, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Infrascale™, developer of SOS Online Backup™, is expanding its list of cloud backup and recovery services for IT channel partners by offering its award-winning data protection app in a private cloud hosting model. This meets the growing demand from MSPs and their customers to own the hardware on which their data is stored and on which the online backup application is run.
Private Cloud Backup Improves Data Security for Downstream Clients
While many firms have found infrastructure cost savings by hosting their online backups in a public cloud, an equal number have become wary of the public cloud. Numerous data breach incidents and spontaneous shutdowns of major data centers in recent years have contributed to this concern. In 2011, IDC reported that 53% of IT managers felt that private cloud hosting was more secure than public cloud hosting.
Infrascale's SOS Online Backup Powers Data Protection on Five Continents
SOS Online Backup has created its application with the ability to be run in different data centers in a variety of locations. It currently hosts data in data centers on five continents. It was a logical transition for SOS to enable its partners to host their white-label cloud backup solution in the data center of their choice.
"In 2012, we saw an increase in customers wanting to take advantage of our software, but to have the control over the cloud," said Ken Shaw, CEO of Infrascale. "We've put over 100 man-years into development of our Dashboard and our online backup application. Our partners now have the ability to take the power of that secure online backup application, re-brand for their firm, and host it in the data center of their – or their customers' – choice. Our objective has always been to integrate with our partners' businesses. Offering private cloud deployment of our application is yet another way to do just that."
Managed Service Providers Can Host Their Online Backup without Compromising on Features
SOS Online Backup's private cloud deployment offers all of the same features currently offered by its hosted service. Partners will be able to white-label the solution, monitor account activity and storage in the Dashboard, and even deploy software and backup policies remotely.
