5 Reasons MSPs Love Time-Based Cloud Retention

Datto recently began offering Time-Based Cloud Retention (TBCR) across its entire line of industry-leading backup, disaster recovery (BCR) and business continuity (BC) solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and other channel partners. Under this new TBCR model, the monthly cost for cloud-based storage of customer data is no longer variable based on volume. Instead, Datto channel partners can now offer customers secure, rapidly recoverable off-site backup for a fixed monthly price that is based on how long they need to retain their data.

Top Five Benefits Of Image-Based Backup

Data is the new currency, and in order to stay competitive businesses must protect it. However, data size and volume are increasing at an unprecedented rate, spawning stricter IT regulations and greater downtime costs for businesses.

Image-based backup is the most innovative, reliable method of safeguarding your business by protecting the critical data on your servers.

What To Look For In A Backup Solution To Deliver Improved Business Continuity

Business continuity is the ability to keep daily operations running—even in the midst of a natural, man-made or technical disaster. It isn’t just about data backup, though; it’s a holistic practice that also addresses ready access to backups and timely restorations—and all of the potential obstacles you might encounter in the process.
