ATLANTA, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- ROBOBAK(TM), a leader in data protection solution software aimed at remote and branch offices, today announced the immediate availability of a special software bundle for managed service providers (MSPs), designed to allow them to experience the benefits of the ROBOBAK software suite for themselves and their clients at no charge.
Unlike the complicated per seat/site licensing used by other vendors that has annoyed customers for years, ROBOBAK said licensing for its MSP edition will continue to be priced on a simple, flat-rate, per-terabyte basis.
The announcement was made today on the first day of the MSPAlliance's Managed Services Summit, being held here in Atlanta, where ROBOBAK is a participating sponsor. The no-cost bundle, designed exclusively for the MSPAlliance, includes a perpetual license that allows MSPAlliance members to protect 50 gigabytes of stored, compressed and de-duplicated data from multiple locations, with unlimited backups and restores. In addition, Alliance members also receive product updates and support for a period of six months. The bundle also includes open file backup and agentless backup of files, SQL Server databases, and Exchange and Exchange mailboxes at no charge, a significant marketing benefit for service providers, and is available through June 30, 2008 for MSPAlliance members.
"The growth of the MSP market means significant opportunities for vendors who are able to appreciate the value that managed service providers deliver to their clients," said Charles Weaver, the MSPAlliance's president. "ROBOBAK's decision to offer Alliance members a special, no-cost perpetual license of the software is a welcome commitment to our organization. It demonstrates that ROBOBAK understands our members' requirements and is dedicated to delivering a solution that will continue to do the job, regardless of how big their clients' data protection requirements grow."
The ROBOBAK software suite for MSPs is designed to deliver tangible, cost- effective benefits to MSPs and their customers. It is comprised of four separate, yet integrated, parts:
-- ROBOBAK - ROBOBAK software automatically handles backup and restore for both local and remote branch offices. -- ROBOBAK Open File Manager - Active files are backed up, enabling up-to- the-second protection. -- ROBOBAK Encryption Manager - Using the most sophisticated algorithms available in the marketplace, ROBOBAK Encryption Manager encrypts all the files it backs up. All data assets are securely delivered to a central hub, where they ultimately reside. -- ROBOBAK Archive - Once files have been securely backed up, ROBOBAK Archive provides an easy-to-use archiving system to ensure round-the- clock access to all valuable information.
"We want to demonstrate our commitment to the MSPAlliance and its members; we can think of no better way to do so than to help them make money and support their customers," said Ron Roberts, ROBOBAK's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Once MSPs try our introductory bundle and experience its combination of powerful performance and ease of use, they will immediately understand its value, and we believe they'll adopt our software for all of their customers. With pricing based on the total amount of data being protected, rather than by seats or sites, and with additional features such as remote browser-based administration, this delivers a clear, easily- administered benefit to MSPs as they seek to grow their business." Roberts also noted that a wide range of service providers throughout North America have already discovered ROBOBAK's benefits for themselves; in fact, he noted that a majority of the company's business comes from MSPs.
