When you’re marketing your managed services concept you can’t just focus on the presentation. You need to focus on the deliverable / business model as well.
Managed services marketing providers who want to remain state-of-the-art in their data back up offerings should add software from Acronis to their software ‘toolbox’. Some features include:
- True image snapshots
- Restores entire server in minutes not hours
- Supports Linux and Windows Servers
- Restores to dissimilar hardware
- Supports virtual machines and file formats like VM ware and XenServer
- Dual Destination back ups
- Low Cost
What really caught our eye was their ability to back up Linux Servers as well as Microsoft. This is a sore subject with us because the growth of Linux servers as put an increasing number of firms out of reach for the traditional managed services marketing offering.
While Acronis may not be your first choice for backup, you should think about adding it to your operational tool box to expand your profit opportunities.
