January 15, 2013
e92plus have announced a partnership with Unitrends, the leading provider of all-in-one backup, archiving, instant recovery and disaster recovery solutions.
|Unitrends provides enterprise-level data protection at the lowest total
cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry. Designed to scale from
entry-level SMB products to the enterprise, Unitrends combines backup
and disaster recovery functionality in a single solution, allowing IT
professionals to protect and quickly restore data, applications,
operating systems, and hypervisors. || |
e92plus will be distributing Unitrends’ full solution set, encompassing Unitrends’ Recovery Series of physical backup and recovery appliances, as well as Unitrends Enterprise Backup™, the company’s software-only virtual appliance. Unitrends’ appliances can be combined with public or private cloud disaster recovery options for a complete backup solution – all managed from a single pane of glass, managing backups across all platforms.
Mukesh Gupta, Managing Director at e92plus, highlighted that “e92plus have experienced excellent growth in the backup market over the past few years, and we are partnering with Unitrends to grow that business even more. The Unitrends solution offers outstanding features that will enable our resellers to increase their backup business and save their customers from being bound up in the nightmare of tape. In addition, their advanced features to support virtualised or MSP environments will also enable us to offer a solution to those VARs we work with across our security and virtualisation portfolios”.
| “Unitrends has enjoyed explosive growth in North America over the last
several years. And while we already have a multitude of customers around
the world, our goal in 2013 is to expand our international presence and
sales to match the high-velocity business we’ve created in the U.S.,”
said Mike Coney, CEO at Unitrends. |
|“We will accomplish this goal by
sticking to the foundation that has made our company so successful to
date: Offering advanced technology that protects data across physical,
virtual and cloud environments; providing customers with unrivalled
support and service; building a strong network of distribution and
channel partners, like our partnership with e92plus; and driving the
company with strong leadership both in the U.S. and in Europe.” || |
With such features, the opportunity for VARs is significant, Mukesh Gupta continues: “Unlike more basic alternatives, their range also includes essential enterprise features such as data encryption and utilising investment in tape or SAN infrastructure, so we see fantastic opportunities for Unitrends with our reseller partners”.
For Unitrends, the partnership with e92plus is central to their UK channel development. “In today’s agile IT environments, there is a real need for robust data protection and recovery solutions. e92plus has extensive experience within the backup and data recovery market and is a trusted distribution partner in the UK. Support and overall customer satisfaction is paramount to Unitrends’ business, and e92plus has not only an established network of partners, but supports our mission to deliver to our European customers the superior level of service and care our North American customers have grown accustomed to. We look forward to working with e92plus to deliver the best data protection and backup solutions available in the market today,” commented Bob Gagnon, vice president of channel sales at Unitrends.
