Company offers improved cloud storage and recovery times, hardware to partners
Axcient, which specializes in business continuity and cloud migration services, is looking to drive down the total cost of ownership (TCO) for MSPs by offering unlimited storage for its backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solutions, improved recovery time objective (RTO) performance, and new appliances that include hot-swap drives and intelligent platform management interface (IPMI).
The Lowdown: Axcient’s goal is to make it easier and less expensive for MSPs to to deliver security and cloud-based services to their customers.
The Details: The company is not only offering unlimited storage for BDR in its Axcient Cloud but also keeping billing easy with just four SKUs. In addition, with the new release, Axcient’s BDR delivers near-instant boot capabilities in the Axcient Cloud. Last, offering hot-swap drives and IPMI on some of the hardware will reduce the number of service tech calls that MSPs have to field.
Background: The new capabilities in the Axcient Cloud are the latest product and service enhancements to be announced since David Bennett took over as CEO in March. Bennett had spent 10 years with security software vendor Webroot, and that tenure included a stint as its Chief Revenue Officer. Earlier this month, the company launched its Axcient Marketing Portal, a marketing tool for its partners.
The Buzz: “We’re serious about providing a frictionless experience for MSPs, and this announcement validates our commitment to helping MSPs protect everything for their customers in a cost-effective yet verified way,” said Axcient co-founder and CTO Kevin Hoffman. “By offering a disruptive pricing model for BDR, faster RTO, and new hardware, we’re boosting our partners’ business performance while adding more margin to their bottom line.”
“Working with a vendor like Axcient that’s innovating and changing the technology to better my business helps me better serve my clients,” said Neil Hawkins, partner and COO at IT services firm Lanair Group. “We understand the importance of ensuring our clients’ data is protected, and Axcient has provided us with the technology to do that.”
