6 BCDR Must-Haves for Meeting Most Use Cases with 1 Solution
Business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) have largely become the most important service MSPs provide. In fact, in an early 2023 survey by ChannelPro and Axcient, 32% of MSPs said BCDR is 20-40% of their business, and 10% said it was over 40%. This isn’t surprising considering the profit potential of a comprehensive, all-in-one BCDR solution and MSP-dedicated vendor.

If you’re one of the MSPs using multiple BCDR solutions and vendors to satisfy your customers’ needs, you must download this eBook! There was a time when MSPs had to diversify their stack to meet customer demands. New customers wanted to keep working with old solutions and vendors, and MSPs accommodated. Sure, it’s nice to gain a new customer, but the cost of managing these solutions and vendors is cutting into your profits.
45% of MSPs say a consolidated platform with a single interface is the most efficient and best technical approach.
For MSPs to switch from an overpacked stack to streamlined simplicity, you need a solution that will continue to support disparate use cases. Not only does the solution need to foster consolidation and accommodate flexible deployment options, but it needs to be easy to use. If the name of the game is less is more, then your BCDR solution needs to enable various teams within your MSP.
46% of MSPs say their BCDR solutions are too complex and difficult to operate.
As a result of these complexities and difficulties, MSPs end up using overlapping, redundant systems to meet use cases. So, the problem with an overpacked stack is that it’s difficult, labor-intensive, and expensive to manage. At the same time, MSPs are consciously overpacking their stacks out of necessity to meet customer demands. It’s a vicious cycle, but with modern advancements in BCDR, it no longer has to be this way.
14% of MSPs are attempting to automate and streamline processes.
Unfortunately, just a small percentage of MSPs are taking advantage of the innovation now available in BCDR and cybersecurity. One of the most impactful features is hands-free automation. Not only does it cut down or eliminate manual interventions, but automating routine tasks eliminates the chance of human error. Furthermore, automation reinforces cybersecurity with features like ransomware rollback, chain-free backups, near-instant virtualization, and backup integrity testing – just to name a few.
33% of MSPs say they can’t consolidate on a single BCDR platform because they can’t find one.
You don’t know what you don’t know, but you’ll have the answers after reading 6 BCDR Must-Haves for Meeting Most Use Cases with 1 Solution.
Within the eBook, we delve into these statistics to illustrate why MSPs are where they are, how they can increase operational efficiency and BCDR reliability, and how to transition from overpacked stack to streamlined simplicity – with just one solution. Be sure to take the current stack quiz in the back of the eBook to assess your stack’s capabilities.
