Protos Technologies, the Michigan-based MSP formerly known as Baseline, has tripled the amount of customer data it protects, from 123TB to 460TB, in the first 18 months of its partnership with Redstor, a global data management and protection SaaS business.
Bruce McKnight, IT consultant at Protos, cites a number of key selling points of Redstor’s Data Management and Protection platform.
These include high levels of automation and support for a broad range of modern and legacy data sources, including cloud-native, containerised workloads and a growing array of SaaS applications, like Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, Salesforce and Xero, all of which can be managed through a single app.
McKnight said: “A lot of people have not yet gone to the cloud. As they do that, we say ‘in the same way that we protect your Exchange servers, we can seamlessly transition to 365 and on the same pane of glass’ and they really like that.”
He added: “For any business onboarding customers in their thousands, there has to be automation. What Redstor is doing is a game-changer. It has been transformational in helping us to fully digitise our business operations and scale more quickly than ever.”
Redstor software is purpose-built for MSPs. In addition to rapid deployment, with zero upfront costs and no need to purchase and install hardware, its proprietary InstantData technology reduces Recovery Time Objectives from hours to seconds for near-zero downtime.
