Backup and Disaster Recovery as a ServiceBy Channel Insider Staff | Posted 2009-06-29 Email Print
End users want off-site storage and backup as part of their disaster recovery strategy. Licensing for backup and disaster recovery software in a services setting is often cost-prohibitive to MSPs.
Managed Service Providers in the business of protecting their customers’ critical systems and data know they need to find reliable backup and disaster recovery software as part of their overall disaster recovery plan. But often the costs of licensing backup and disaster recovery software can be prohibitive.
It’s not only important to find software that will recover systems and data in the event of a disaster, but also to find a solution with the right licensing program so that you are able to profitably sell disaster recovery as a service. Approaching licensing options with the same critical eye you use to discriminate among technology options will help you choose software that your customers will trust with their systems and data and that you will trust with your bottom line.
