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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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."
