The services division of IT distributor Ingram Micro announced that Axcient has joined the company's Cloud vendor portfolio and is offering its unified platform for backup, business continuity and disaster recovery to Ingram Micro channel partners throughout North America.
Available now in the United States and coming soon to Canada, Axcient's all-in-one solution is purpose-built for the needs of small to medium-size businesses (SMBs) and for organizations that have a need or regulatory requirement to protect their data and maintain business continuity in the event of a data loss, server failure or disaster.
Delivered through a hybrid cloud configuration, the Axcient solution offers resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) data protection that helps ensure application and server availability while empowering data restore. Equipped with Axcient's on-premises HP appliance, the Axcient solution provides local backups with customizable restore points and offers failover for multiple business-critical applications. For further protection, a copy of customer data and server images is automatically delivered to the Axcient SAS 70 II certified data center for full redundancy in the cloud.
"By leveraging the scalability and cost savings of the cloud—along with the reliable, HP-based, on-site Axcient appliance—Axcient is enabling resellers and MSPs to provide SMBs with enterprise-class service and technology at SMB price points," said Justin Moore, CEO of Axcient. "With the extended reach and support of Ingram Micro and its Cloud Marketplace, we're making it even easier for channel partners to sell complete data protection solutions designed to ensure application and server uptime and rapid data restore for SMBs."
Ingram Micro resellers and MSPs can now download supporting solutions datasheets, sales tools and marketing collateral for Axcient from Ingram Micro's Website at no charge, though registration is required. Additional sales and support services including cross-trained technical and pre-sales support are also available to mutual Axcient and Ingram Micro channel partners.
"Axcient offers great technology for SMBs and doesn't require any upfront charges or complex per user or per device license fees—it's just a straightforward, predictable monthly service fee based on the amount of customer data we need to protect," said Mark Mathis of Arctic IT, and current Axcient partner and Ingram Micro VTN member. "Axcient's cloud-based services are very cost-effective, simple to deploy and extremely reliable. It's a great addition to the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace and a big win for Axcient partners who are already doing business with Ingram Micro."
