Veeam Announces Managed Backup Portal For Service Providers
Today at VeeamON, Veeam Software announced a new way for service providers to deliver backup services (including BaaS) and propel cloud-based availability, Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers. Through this new service partners will be able to easily acquire new customers and build new revenue streams.
According to IDC, the worldwide market for hosted private cloud, which amounted to $8.9 billion in 2014, will grow at a CAGR of 35.4% to reach $40.6 billion in 2019. Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers is designed to help partners streamline the delivery of Veeam-powered backup services (including BaaS), including resellers interested in launching a service provider business. Included in this “business-in-a-box” is including remote monitoring and management of customer backups via a service provider portal for administrative and billing purposes, and a customer portal for basic self-service monitoring and configuration. Veeam states that this is an ideal foundation for both the established service provider or for partners wishing to carve out new opportunities for themselves as a service provider.
Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers is integrated with Veeam Cloud Connect for Service Providers and will be available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
Key capabilities include:
- Simplified customer on-boarding: With a service provider administration portal, creating new customer accounts, provisioning services, and even managing customer billing and invoicing is easier than ever
- Streamlined remote monitoring and remote management: Daily monitoring and management of customers’ jobs is made simple and convenient, and can be done securely through a single port over SSL/TLS (no VPN required)
- Multi-tenant customer portal: Clients remain engaged with a customer portal where they can set up users and locations, easily monitor backup health, review cloud repository consumption and manage monthly billing statements.
Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2016 through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
