Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are determined to find powerfully simple and cost-effective data protection and recovery solutions. This solution needs to reliably protect their customers and at an attractive price point.
IronEdge is a leading MSP committed to providing its clients topnotch data protection, delivering the greatest value on every information technology dollar its customer spend. So what brought IronEdge and Axcient together?
Firstly, Axcient is a solution that is easy to deploy which saves time and costs. Axcient’s Web-based interface allows IronEdge to easily deploy, monitor and manage all client devices from a single web interface. This allows them to dramatically reduce time spent managing each client.
This ease of use translates into an effortless recovery process. Ryan Lakin, the managing partner at IronEdge Group, reminisces on how Axcient’s ease of use really made a difference; “With Axcient, clients receive a hybrid cloud solution for both local and cloud protection for data and applications,” said Lakin. “We had a situation where a couple of client servers crashed, but we were able to easily and instantly failover to the Axcient cloud. Client data and applications were protected, and the incidents were barely noticed.”
Secondly, Axcient is a solution with a price that reduces costs and increases margins. Axcient eliminates the costly and complicated pricing structures typical to competing legacy solutions. Axcient offers pooled protection “Packs” that allows IronEdge to quickly and more cost-effectively slice and dice the data across clients.
Lakin raves about the pricing structure, explaining that “The Axcient service provider pricing is very attractive to MSPs. The more customers we bring into our pool, the better it is for our margins. Every new client engagement that we start, we always lead with Axcient’s Recovery-as-a-Service for all backup and disaster recovery needs. It’s great for our customers and the fact that it’s so easy to deploy and manage means it’s simpler and more cost effective for IronEdge.”
And just like that, Axcient became the preferred protection solution for IronEdge.
