46-Page Business Continuity eBook Addresses How MSPs Can Alleviate Pressures, Simplify BDR for SMB Customers While Yielding Impressive Margins

BOSTON – July 11, 2016 – Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, released the 46-page comprehensive eBook, “Business Continuity: The MSP’s Guide to Backup and Disaster Recovery,” to help MSPs capitalize on the lucrative backup and disaster recovery (BDR) opportunity. The book outlines important considerations and requirements that service providers should deliberate when developing modern BDR offerings and explains how MSPs can help SMB customers to embrace the era of cloud business continuity for reliable storage, backup and recoverability services.

“The rapidly-expanding, highly-lucrative opportunities for MSPs are transforming their businesses by evolving beyond traditional hardware-centric offsite backup solutions to offer software-defined, cloud-based business continuity and disaster recovery services,” said Michael George, CEO at Continuum. “At Continuum, it’s our solemn commitment and humble privilege to contribute to the success of the IT channel through continuous innovation and education. We hope this book serves as a valuable asset to MSPs as they seek to further expand opportunities in the backup and disaster recovery market.”

The cloud offers small businesses an unprecedented opportunity to tap into resources that were once restricted to large enterprise organizations. With regard to backup, utilizing cloud-based storage can help SMBs drastically reduce the cost of data replication, offsite storage and more. A June release of Continuity247™, Continuum’s fully managed BDR platform, features a re-design of the Server Backup Manager (SBM) user interface. Building on the design philosophy of the platform’s existing Simplified Interface, Continuum utilized the same clean UI layout to incorporate all SBM features into a significantly improved, more user-friendly design.

With the Continuity247 platform, directly supported by more than 650 technicians at Continuum’s Network Operations Center (NOC), service providers can substantially extend their workforce and breadth of expertise –enabling them to cost-effectively deliver robust continuity services while generating impressive margins.

When Continuity247 is combined with Continuum’s Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform, the company delivers complete end-to-end IT management and data protection for MSPs’ clients. For more information on Continuity247, visit:
