During the past 18 months, the important role that managed service providers (MSPs) play in delivering critical IT services to businesses of all sizes has become crystal clear. Empowering those service providers with the tools needed to keep their clients protected is vital, which is why Acronis is proud that our innovative backup and data protection technology is the first integration for the new ConnectWise Recover Complete BDR solution.
Unveiled last week, ConnectWise’s new solution offers MSPs integrations with multiple third-party backup solutions. As one of the leading backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solutions in the world – from a company dedicated to aiding service providers – Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud was selected as the first integration for the new platform.
In announcing the integration, Jan-Jaap “JJ” Jager, Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis explained, “ConnectWise sees the MSP industry much like Acronis does, and that is why we are proud to announce the launch of our new integration on Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. Both ConnectWise and Acronis are focused on providing backup and recovery solutions from one single pane of glass, so MSPs can easily maintain their daily workloads, and focus on keeping their customers’ businesses secure, efficient and profitable.”
Acronis integration with ConnectWise Recover Complete BDR
With ConnectWise’s new platform, MSPs can monitor and manage all of their BDR solutions via one console. They can also use ConnectWise NOC (network operations center) Services to manage their BDR solution, eliminating the need to devote full-time resources to backup tasks.
With Acronis’ technology offered directly through the ConnectWise Recover Complete BDR platform, service providers can assign tasks for the NOC’s experienced technicians to monitor their environment and solve issues – enabling the service provider’s team to focus on projects that add value to their clients.
Plus, MSPs can integrate with Acronis through the ConnectWise Marketplace, enabling them to benefit from streamlined billing, additional integrations for Manage, Automate, Control, and Command, and simplified processes for their techs.
Advantages of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud
As with all of the platform integrations our solutions offer, the inclusion of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud in ConnectWise Recover Complete BDR gives service providers the flexibility and choice they need to build and manage services based on the platforms and solutions they choose.
Increasingly, MSPs looking to streamline the technologies behind their services are turning to Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, which may explain why this was the first integration in ConnectWise’s new platform. Given the comprehensive set of essential services included in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud at no cost or on a pay-as-you-go basis, the solution enables MSPs to build a full set of cyber protection services at little to no cost.
Additional advance packs are also available that enable MSPs to extend their services with more capabilities to meet the needs of even the most demanding client requirements. The Advanced Backup add-on, for example, provides additional support for more workload types including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle DBMS Real Application clusters, and SAP HANA. Similarly, the Advanced Disaster Recovery pack enables MSPs to instantly spinning up client systems in the cloud when disaster strikes, ensuring business continuity and reducing downtime.
And because Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud unifies data protection with cutting-edge cybersecurity and endpoint protection management capabilities, client data is protected against the latest cyberthreats.
