MSPs face a continual series of make or buy decisions. One decision before most growing MSPs is how to deliver disaster recovery in the cloud. Server image backup is a must-have offering for clients. Fast, on-site recovery takes things to the next level; most partners are able to commit to fast server recovery by deploying a BDR appliance to the client’s location. This BDR appliance serves as a local storage point for the server images and steps in as a standby server in the case of an outage of some kind. Virtualization technology enables the fast recovery of the servers on the BDR appliance.

Our partner web portal has evolved quite a bit since its initial launch in 2005. Originally, it was focused on helping partners manage their online backup accounts for their customers. Over the years, we’ve added local backup, email archiving, and recently BDR hardware monitoring and configuration. There’s a lot more information for each account than there used to be. There’s also quite a few new account actions and reports as well. While the interface is highly functional and streamlined for the common tasks, it also screams information overload. And let’s just say it wasn’t going to win awards for its aesthetic appeal anytime soon.
Our web portal has long been overdue for a comprehensive overhaul. It’s been a long time in coming, but we feel you will not be disappointed! Continue reading
