NovaStor’s new whitepaper provides IT service providers and channel partners with essential information on how to develop their own managed backup service.
Agoura Hills / (CA) USA, Hamburg / Deutschland, Zug / Schweiz October 1, 2010 – NovaStor, a pioneer in data protection, announced today the release of a new whitepaper titled “Cloud Backup: Getting Started”.  The whitepaper gives Managed Service Providers, Value Added Resellers, IT Solution Providers and System Integrators valuable information on how to make more money with a managed backup service.

Due to rapid data growth, increasing demand, rising bandwiths and better technology, one area of cloud computing that presents significant opportunity is managed backup and recovery (data protection) as a service. A business currently managing their own backup and recovery processes stands to save considerable money in hardware costs, software costs, and IT overhead by outsourcing this service to a qualified service provider using a cloud based platform. Doing so ultimately allows them to focus on what the service provides (business continuity) without worrying about the infrastructure and resources necessary to provide it.

However, not every business model for data protection services has an equal potential for success.  Readers will find detailed information on the four most common business models for delivering a data protection service and which ones have the most profit potential.  Also included are the five most important factors to consider when developing a backup business model, the five essential criteria for successful business development, valuable tips for customer acquisition and the importance of choosing a technology partner who offers more than just technology.

“Cloud Backup: Getting Started” is currently available for free on NovaStor’s website.
