Continuum, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, announced that cloud services provider dinCloud selected its R1Soft Server Backup Manager (SBM) to provide continuous data protection services as part of its dinBackup solution for more resilient workspaces for existing and new clients. dinBackup provides backup and snapshot capabilities as a self-service to clients who choose to self-manage or work with channel partners to manage backups. The service runs in a hosted private cloud for each customer, powered by dinCloud. R1Soft SBM is the leading commercial backup software, deployed by more than 1,800 web hosting providers, protecting nearly 250,000 servers worldwide.
“Data protection is becoming more critical to an organization, however, having redundant systems is too expensive,” said Ali Din, General Manager at dinCloud. “Customers are looking for a more economical form of protecting their data, which is why we decided to partner with Continuum’s R1Soft. The relationship enables us to provide our customers with a leading backup service that meets their data protection needs and also allows us to continue ensuring that customers have control and transparency into flat rate pricing.”
dinCloud selected R1Soft based on its robust offering – giving control to the customer and their partners – its scalability – for cloud providers running thousands of virtual machines with many customers – and its ease to deploy SBM’s many valuable features include reporting, self-service, detailed capabilities and support for multiple platforms, including Windows and Linux OS, SQL, MySQL and Exchange. It also selected R1Soft for centralized backup and management, replication, file level and VM level backup and restores, as well as flexible scheduling options.
“dinBackup is a comprehensive, enterprise-class solution that hits all of our requirements as an MSP,” said Russell Kuhl, Director of Technology at 1Point Networks, a dinCloud MSP partner. “From the flexibility of backup schedules, to the data-deduplication technologies employed, data replication and encryption, and centralized alerting and management, dinBackup lets us provide a top-notch backup solution to our most demanding clients, as well as our more straight-forward ones, and do so in a cost-effective way.”
The combined solution ensures protection against data loss and also backs up the data for as long as needed based on customer requirements. dinCloud offers dinBackup through its VAR and MSP channel partner program.
“As a cloud service provider focused on security, data protection is a top priority for dinCloud,” said Randy Bowie, Vice President, Backup Product and Engineering at Continuum. “dinBackup combined with R1soft provides a simple way of protecting data in the cloud with easy setup and flexible policies based on customer requirements.”
