Infraworx targets MSPs with subscription-based model

Company launches Australian-based backup and recovery service for MSPs

Australian backup and recovery specialist, Infraworx, has launched a new range of subscription-based products aimed at managed service providers.

The company, which stores all of its data in Australia, has released its new advanced Cloud backup and recovery product.

Infraworx backup is a highly secure product which enables businesses of any size to continuously and securely backup their servers and PC's to remote destinations, as well as to local destinations.

Infraworx director, Antonne Ghobrial, told ARN the products had been tested "inside-out" and that he was confident of winning clients with superior service and quality in the long run.

All support services are based Australia.

"We have five MSPs at the moment and we hope to have 20 in the next 12 months," he said.

"We want to be a backup and recovery specialist for MSPs."

He said the most important thing to enable MSPs was the introduction of portal access.

"There was a lot of research put into the portal to find the right solution and it took about three or four months create," he said.

"The main thing MSPs need is to be able to log in and view all their clients easily. We try to give an all in one solution."

Infraworx Cloud Backup for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager is one of its core offerings.

It provides the service to the client, who pays a subscription fee for the service.

This fee is calculated by the amount of storage that the client uses for backups.

The Infraworx Cloud Disaster Recovery improves an organisation's recovery time objective and reduces the cost to maintain a healthy and reliable disaster recovery solution.

In minutes, customers can provision an iSCSI volume, CIFS or NFS share of any size on the company's enterprise-class Cloud storage via pay as you go on-demand storage.

Clients would install a storage gateway applican (physical or virtual). This gateway will present storage to the required systems at Infraworx's enterprise data centre.

The internal cache of the gateway allows "like-local" disk speed to the client systems so they do not experience any delays.

All data is also encyrpted before being sent, with the keys stored at the client site.

Ghobrial said the company was taking advantage of the shift in consumer sentiment to a subscription-based model.

The whole purpose behind delivering a best of breed product with Australian-based support is that we want a long term relationship," he said.

"In the long term, if our rate of retention is very high, we will do well."
