Companies today face more data-related challenges than ever before: ransomware, natural disasters, cyber-attacks, compliance and human error. Businesses need reliable, streamlined cloud backup solutions that work across diverse platforms, hardware and operating systems. As a channel partner, do you struggle to find backup options you can customize for a diverse customer base, from fast-scaling SMBs to large companies pushing upper-limit capacities? Are you looking for endpoint backup solutions that support a mobile workforce or laptop fleet? Do you need a partner that balances reliable business-continuity and disaster-recovery support with customized data-retention options?
Here are five factors to evaluate when choosing the best backup solution for your portfolio (plus a few reasons why our partner LiveVault should be at the top of your list!):
1. Coverage for Every Cloud Backup Need
To effectively and efficiently service your customers’ backup needs, you need a provider that has solutions for all the backup needs or environments you encounter. Whether it’s servers or endpoints, physical or virtualized environments, cloud-only or hybrid-cloud with onsite, LiveVault’s suite of solutions covers your clients from end-to-end.
2. Integrated Solutions for Multiple Platforms
Finding a cloud backup provider that offers comprehensive support for the diverse combination of operating systems, versions and applications you support is challenging with only one vendor. From VMWare and Hyper-V through Windows environments to iSeries/AIX, HP-UX and Solaris, LiveVault’s products enable you to support your customer base no matter how complex their environments are.
3. Customized Retention and Compliance Support
Corporate compliance oversight has never been tougher. From legal holds to the data-retention demands of industry regulations like HIPAA, PCI DSS, SAS 70 Type II and ISO 97001, the right backup solution coupled with the right infrastructure is essential. LiveVault’s custom retention plans provide the flexibility to define short-term and long-term policies that can be molded to your customers’ unique needs. LiveVault’s robust backup infrastructure enables you to confidently offer a solution that complies with the industry’s highest security and privacy standards.
4. Centralized Management
Busy IT managers need centralized dashboards that make it easy to manage backup tools. Centralized management allows users to monitor the entire data management workflow, set data rules, ensure continuous backups and access point-in-time recovery services to tight 15-minute intervals.
5. Reliability That Backs Up Your Reputation
When backups fail, your reputation is on the line. Choose a partner that provides world-class software and infrastructure, allowing you to focus on customer service. The right partner should offer redundant, geographically distinct global data centers that support U.S. and international customers, and ensure data is protected and recoverable in the face of any disaster.
LiveVault’s best-in-breed backup solutions give you the flexibility to offer customized, multi-platform backup support for large and small businesses alike. From servers to endpoints, this comprehensive backup solution supports more than 200 platforms, applications and operating systems.
