Industry factors that are driving adoption for cloud backup and DR, and Zetta.net’s solution, include rapidly increasing volumes of data that require backup, as well as larger-sized data sets – over 500GB, that make traditional software backup slow and ineffective.
Zetta.net’s award-winning enterprise-grade cloud backup and DR solution is optimized for large data volumes above 500GB, and transfers up to 5TB in 24 hours without requiring an appliance. All data is encrypted in transit across the Internet and at rest in SSAE-16 certified data centers, with 99.99996 percent backup reliability and 100 percent recovery reliability.
Managed service providers (MSPs), resellers, and other partners find Zetta.net’s solution particularly attractive due to a pricing model that helps them generate a profitable recurring revenue stream, with no hidden costs. And its appliance-free approach and multi-tenant partner portal promotes higher margins by enabling less time/expense implementing and managing customer backup deployments—no onsite visits required.
MSP Raffa selected Zetta.net because its solution requires no backup appliance—which means no initial start-up cost—and is straightforward for clients to install and manage. “Zetta.net is the easiest backup system to set up and configure that we’ve ever seen, hands-down,” said Nate Solloway, Technical Outsourcing Manager at Raffa. “It allows us to offer an affordable, enterprise-class backup and DR solution which results in higher customer satisfaction and increased revenue to our bottom line.”
“In addition to the technology advantages that Zetta.net offers, we’ve worked to develop a ‘sell-with’ model that demonstrates a true partnering culture and commitment to the channel,” said Art Ledbetter, Zetta.net’s Director of Channels. “This maximizes collaboration with our partners and executive sales team which is incented to help build business with them.”
