Cloud Backup Services Innovator Expands Support for Virtualized Environments and Opens New Canadian Data Center
Expanding its support for virtualized environments, Intronis, Inc., provider of world-class cloud backup solutions for the IT channel, recently announced the immediate availability of its Spring Release ’13. Simultaneously, the cloud backup storage leader announced the opening of its latest data center in Montreal, Canada.
“Intronis is a fast-growth company focused on earning the business and enabling the success of our North American channel partners,” says Rick Faulk, Intronis CEO. “Our Spring Release ’13 offers VARs and MSPs the technology, resources and support needed to scale success and offer an invaluable backup and recovery service perfectly suited to support physical and virtualized environments with ease and efficiency.”
New features within Intronis’ Spring Release ’13 include QuickSpin, a powerful data recovery tool that offers advanced data restore and localized recovery support for virtualized machines. Priced at a fixed per-host cost, QuickSpin offers Change Block Tracking (CBT) for speedier incremental backups, flexible data retention and archiving settings, as well as 256-bit AES encryption for maximum data protection.
Additional features included in the Spring Release ’13 are an enhanced Intronis Partner Portal lined with greater customization, usability and managed access controls; and the Branding Wizard, a new marketing and enablement tool that lets Intronis partners quickly create a customer-facing portal featuring their own logo, colors and specific information.
“Backup and recovery is a business critical service for SMBs and represents a growing, high-value opportunity for IT channel partners throughout North America,” says Dan Iacono, storage analyst, IDC. “Intronis’ Spring Release ’13 strives to simplify cloud-based backup, speed time to recovery and provide a SaaS-based data recovery solution that delivers greater business value to channel partners, as well as the SMBs they serve.”
New Canadian Data Center Removes Sales Barriers, Expands Market Potential
Along with its Spring Release ’13, Intronis announced it has invested in a new Canadian Data Center to ensure channel partners in Canada are able to comply with the country’s federal and provincial regulations that restrict how and where data is managed. The new data center is located in Montreal, Canada and in operation now.
“With Intronis’ new Canadian Data Center and proven VMware capabilities we gain a significant client services advantage and are able to provide greater peace of mind by assuring our client’s data is stored in country and readily recoverable,” says John Atwood, system support specialist, MicroAge IT Solutions in Alberta, Canada. “It’s definitely a big win for Intronis’ Canadian partners and will certainly help us better address the needs of our clients working within highly-regulated or data sensitive vertical markets such as healthcare and government.”
“The Canadian market is important to Intronis and in order to help our Canadian channel partners capitalize on the demand for cloud-based backup and recovery solutions, we needed to establish an in-country presence,” says Rob Merklinger, vice president of sales, Intronis. “Our new Canadian Data Center addresses the country’s regulations and restrictions around data protection, simplifies the sales discussion and positions Intronis to become the cloud backup and recovery provider of choice for the Canadian IT channel.”
The award-winning cloud storage leader also introduced an enhanced Partner Trial offering that makes it easy for interested channel partners to test-drive the Intronis BDR solution and partner enablement support with no risk, no cost and no obligation.
