Why Hosting Providers Should Consider Cloud Backup

Posted by Cynthia Hart

Party in Boston! Well, that's what the folks attending HostingCon this week are saying. The Asigra Team headed down to Boston on Monday to participate at one of the largest Hosting Provider Conferences in North America. And we were definitely in good company with companies such as Dell, Symantec, Ingram Micro, Peer1 Hosting, LuxCloud, Parallels, SoftLayer, VMware, and many others.

We can't wait for the team to return to tell us all about it. If you are wondering why we were at the event, or if you are at the event, but just did not have time to stop by our booth to say "hi", let us share with you some key insights into how we can help Hosting Providers increase their recurring revenue by offering a cloud backup services powered by an award-winning enterprise platform.

Asigra Cloud Backup™ is the only agentless cloud backup software and the first to receive FIPS 140-2 certification with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), making it the most secure data backup platform in the industry.

We also integrate with Parallels, the worldwide leader in hosting and cloud service enablement and desktop virtualization, and have received Parallels' Application Packaging Standard (APS) Gold Certification. The combination of Parallels Automation and Asigra Cloud Backup offers hosting providers a turnkey portfolio of storage services to protect everything from servers to desktops to laptops to tablets to smartphones.

According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the volume of data worldwide is expected to increase 50 times by 2020. However, many organizations are already experiencing a high level of data growth. Businesses must identify much better approaches to data management, retention, storage, sharing, access, and security in order to effectively deal with this growth. This need presents hosting providers with an expanding business opportunity to increase their total addressable market by offering an automated, secure backup service in the cloud.

  • APS-based integration via SaaS module
  • The ability to create and manage Asigra accounts, choose and auto-provision a multitude of Backup & Recovery services
  • Support for mobile devices
  • Support for virtual environments
  • Support for Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS environments
  • Flexible backup quota assignments
  • Chargeable Backup & Recovery Assurance per backup type even low throughput/high latency remote sites
  • Capability to deliver Virtual Disaster Recovery Services

According to the University of Texas, statistics show that 43% of companies who experience a major loss of data will never reopen and 51% will close within two years. The long-term survival rate is a tiny 6%. Losing your clients' data could be the end of your business. Using secure, reliable cloud backup like Asigra's adds that extra layer of peace of mind to your hosting business.

As a hosting provider, you maintain a TON of data – what do you do if you lose your data? What do you tell your clients? Have you asked your customers how they are protecting data on their laptops?
