After Competitive Evaluations, Continuity247’s Features – 24x7x365 Support from Continuum’s NOC and Price Point – Sealed Deal for BSS

BOSTON – July 12, 2016 – Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, announced that BSS Consulting, technology solution provider based in Indiana since 1995, converted to Continuity247™, the company’s fully managed backup and disaster recovery (BDR) platform, with successful results for more than 6 months. After evaluation of competitive BDR solutions, BSS converted to Continuity247 after using its predecessor, Vault, since 2012.

“We have always been very happy with the support and integration between Continuum’s RMM and BDR solutions,” said Bill Ooms, owner of BSS Consulting for more than 20 years. “With the introduction of Continuity247, we felt the need to evaluate other backup providers, however, in the end, we were most impressed with the features of Continuum’s new BDR platform, and along with the competitive price point and 24x7x365 support from Continuum’s NOC, we determined that the solution was most viable.”

Despite client fear of losing historic data when switching platforms, BSS has been successful converting clients to the new BDR platform by educating them on the differences between data archiving and the live data associated with disaster recovery. Different from an archiving solution, Continuity247 is a fully managed BDR solution where backed up data can be stored locally and is replicated offsite. MSPs and their clients enjoy peace of mind knowing that business continuity is maintained in the event of human error, malware or disaster scenario.

Backed by Continuum’s industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC), Continuity247 proactively monitors and verifies backups, provides recovery and testing support, troubleshoots and ensures backups continuously run 24x7x365 for small and medium sized business clients. Having the NOC team of more than 650 technicians behind BSS is one of the largest benefits for the MSP. Continuity247 is hardware agnostic, and with features like instant restore, support for hardware and software RAID, granular file and folder recovery and Continuous Data Protection™, Continuity247 ensures clients’ data is secure. 

BSS Consulting is a complete technology solution provider with a 100 percent commitment to making sure business owners have the most reliable and professional IT service in Lafayette, West Lafayette, Kokomo and Logansport, Indiana. For the second straight year, BSS Consulting was named a finalist in IT expert Robin Robins“Better Your Best” competition earlier this year. BSS saw monthly recurring revenue increase $33,093, gross sales were up over $400,000 and business has doubled in the last three years.
