SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2012) - Zetta.net, a provider of 3-in-1 online server backup solutions, today announced an enhanced partner program for both managed service providers (MSPs) and value added resellers (VARs). The program provides participating partners with a significant competitive advantage in the data protection space, bringing the revolutionary Zetta DataProtect 3-in-1 online backup solution to the channel with a simple and profitable MSP and VAR optimized delivery model.
According to Gartner, at least 30 percent of organizations will have changed backup vendors by 2014 due to frustration over cost, complexity and/or capacity. The Zetta.net Partner Program gives North American reseller partners a quick and profitable way to capitalize on this growing demand with a low-cost, cloud-based data protection alternative that delivers the industry's only 3-in-1 online backup solution for small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Delivering backup, disaster recovery and archiving for the price of backup alone, Zetta DataProtect™ is the ideal solution for companies that want to achieve automated and reliable data protection without a heavy financial or human resource investment.
"Zetta is ideally positioned to lead the shift from legacy backup solutions to the more effective and efficient online approach to data protection," said Jill Cooper, vice president of sales, Zetta.net. "We're doing so in a way that is truly designed to benefit both MSPs and VARs. It allows partners to bring what is typically expensive and complex technology to smaller customers, particularly as they move away from legacy tape backup systems. And because Zetta.net is easy to install, train and manage with low overhead, it gives partners an even greater opportunity to increase their margins as they increase their footprint and grow their business."
The Zetta Partner Program delivers the following advantages to qualified partners:
- A higher value solution with backup, disaster recovery and archiving all for the price of backup alone, delivering a clear competitive advantage over more limited backup-only solutions
