MSPs and IT service providers face quite a few challenges today. The IT environment is constantly changing. New technologies impact SMBs' business processes almost as soon as they hit the market. Security threats are emerging at an accelerating clip. And this all plays out against a demanding competitive landscape.
To succeed, MSPs need to be able to adapt to all these changes. At the same time, they need to offer solutions that provide clear value in order to improve brand recognition, grow account lists, and expand profit margins.That’s why everyone here at Intronis is excited to introduce the Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition.
Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition
With the addition of this platform, we’re able to cover new use cases and add new functionality to our portfolio. The use cases our appliance solution helps our partners address include:
- Recovery and spin-up of VMware vSphere VMs in the cloud
- Protecting SMB environments that include Mac OS X and/or Linux systems, or any mix of these and Microsoft Windows systems
- Cloud-based image backup
- SharePoint protection with granular file search and recovery
The Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition is only our first step toward expanding the breadth of services you can offer your customers.
Barracuda Technology Tailored to Intronis Partners’ Needs
I want to make it clear that this isn’t just a new device launch. There are a couple of innovations that we believe set our offering apart from others you may have seen in the MSP marketplace.
First, we’ve simplified the terms for adopting and rolling out this solution for our MSP partners. Like our Intronis ECHOplatform offering, Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition is available for a flat monthly fee per customer. You’ll pay no up-front fee or deposit to extend appliance-based power and convenience to your customers who need it. Many of the partners we’ve spoken to find this arrangement to be a game-changer, but we know from experience that Intronis fixed pricing delivers tremendous value for you and your customers.
Second, all of our partners will be entitled to a hardware refresh every four years. This is a Barracuda innovation for safeguarding against obsolescence that we’re happy to extend to our partners. It’s really fantastic to be able to bring Barracuda’s technologies and channel expertise to bear in our quest to empower the MSP community.
The First of Many AnnouncementsSpeaking for myself, I think what’s most exciting about the launch of Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition is the fact that we’re working toward offering a whole collection of services to our MSP and other IT service provider partners, rather than just one slice of the cake. Naturally, we plan to do this in a measured way to make sure we are staffed and equipped to enable our partners fully, from onboarding and billing customization to administration and customer care operations.
I truly hope you’ll join us on this journey and look forward to telling you more about it soon as we expand our list of solutions.
