Backup and disaster recovery company, Veeam, has extended partnership with remote monitoring and management (RMM) business, ConnectWise in A/NZ.
This extended partnership will Veeam and ConnectWise introduce Veeam Endpoint back-up for LabTech to the A/NZ market, enabling MSPs to offer a complete solution with high-speed, low-cost remote backup, recovery and management of Windows-based endpoints through LabTech.
This also allows managed services providers to have a centralised view of Veeam activities inside virtual environments.
Veeam and ConnectWise began their partnership with the Veeam backup and replication plug-in for LabTech, which enables MSPs to have a centralised view of Veeam activities inside virtual environments via the LabTech Control Center.
Veeam A/NZ head of channel and alliances, Peter Bender, said this extended partnership will let local service providers leverage Veeam’s Availability solutions with backup and recovery of VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs), Windows-based endpoints, and some physical Windows-based servers.
“Mobile working is a major component of the always-on enterprise and we carry a huge amount of data in our laptops so the cost to business of losing one can be significant, yet endpoint protection is often overlooked,” Bender said.
“The principle benefit of Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech is that it enables MSPs to provide a better service to their customers. It is for monitoring and managing remote customer sites and allows MSPs to be as proactive and efficient as possible in improving availability for their customers.
“There’s been great demand for the solution in the A/NZ market, following its launch in North America last year,” he added.
ConnectWise international sales and strategy vice-president, Gregg Lalle, said the MSP market is competitive and the ability for an MSP to provide as much attention to a customer’s endpoints, as it would the datacentre, will deliver competitive advantage.
“That’s what Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech provides and we’re delighted it is now available in the A/NZ region,” Lalle added.
