New Platform Enables Channel Partners to Consolidate Data Protection Solutions and Deliver Highly Flexible Services to SMBs
Chelmsford, Mass. – June 10, 2014 – Intronis, Inc., a provider of world-class cloud backup and data protection solutions for the IT channel, today announced the Intronis ECHOplatform. Purpose-built exclusively for IT service providers, the new Intronis ECHOplatform serves as the foundation of the market innovator’s award-winning data protection and business recovery solution.
Available now, the new Intronis ECHOplatform delivers the industry’s most secure, scalable, and comprehensive cloud backup and data recovery solution, supporting a variety of in-demand services, plug-ins, and extensions such as server and laptop imaging, VMware and Hyper-V, SQL and Exchange backup, and soon—bare metal restore (BMR) and file sync and share. Engineered to simplify delivery of cloud backup and data protection services for channel partners, the new all-in-one platform features an open application programming interface (API), seamless integration with today’s leading professional service automation (PSA) and remote monitoring and management (RMM) tools and technologies, and a robust management portal that provides a single pane of glass view of all account activity.
Additional business-building benefits within the Intronis ECHOplatform that are proven to help managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs) grow a more successful cloud services practice include:
– Simplicity and Scale: The new Intronis ECHOplatform takes a simplified approach to sales and additional services by offering channel partners unlimited cloud and unlimited local storage for a flat, fixed-rate price per small to midsize business (SMB) site, as well as access to a growing portfolio of the services, plug-ins, and extensions needed to offer customers complete data protection. Additionally, channel partners can quickly standardize, customize, and scale their storage solution to fit the needs of the customer without adding additional costs.
– Branding Rights: Staying true to its white-label promise, the Intronis ECHOplatform can be completely rebranded by IT service providers to reflect the company’s logo and color scheme. Deploying the Intronis ECHOplatform as their own solution for data protection and business recovery creates dynamic business building opportunities for Intronis partners.
– Integrations with RMM and PSA Tools: The Intronis ECHOplatform is closely integrated with the tools IT service providers use to run their businesses every day. These integrations simplify the management, maintenance, and support for our channel partners, further reducing their total cost of ownership.
– Single Platform: Offering a predictable cost structure and tight integrations with core MSP business tools, the new Intronis ECHOplatform empowers channel partners to consolidate their existing backup under a single platform. By standardizing on one platform, Intronis partners lower their management, training, and support costs, while taking advantage of the industry’s most robust management portal to manage their clients’ entire backup requirements.
Exclusivity and Predictable Pricing Model Deliver Unique Advantage to Channel Partners
The new Intronis ECHOplatform is available exclusively to channel partners at a flat, monthly cost for unlimited cloud and local storage. The new predictable pricing model, called the Intronis U2 Plan, removes storage limits and enables channel partners to perfect cost predictability each month.
Additionally, the Intronis U2 Plan makes it easier for channel partners to deliver customizable services using the Intronis ECHOplatform, which will increase their revenue potential and scale their profit as storage, devices, and application usage grows.
