Flexiant announced that Acronis Backup Cloud is now integrated with the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator platform allowing cloud service providers to quickly and easily offer the Backup as a Service (BaaS) to their Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) customers.
Acronis Backup Cloud is optimised for service providers by supporting the broadest range of systems in use today including XEN, KVM, Linux, Virtuozzo, Docker, Open-Xchange, and MySQL. The solution features built-in automation, to allow the scaling out of the solution to support millions of end user customers – all within their existing billing and provisioning environments. Additionally a flexible pay-per-use pricing models also make it easy for service providers to upsell and cross-sell new backup services.
When provisioning a server, end customers simply need to select a configuration with the backup option they want enabled. The integrated billing functionality allows service providers to bill for Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator-based IaaS and BaaS on the same invoice, making it simple to manage and easy for the customer.
End customers are automatically signed up to the Acronis Backup Cloud service and all the required Acronis software is automatically provisioned onto their virtual servers, saving them time and effort. With a Single-Sign-On to the Acronis back-end, customers can also take advantage of Acronis’ more advanced functionality, or to restore a backup as an entire VM or a single file.
Now listed in the Flexiant Marketplace, cloud service providers can sign up here for a 30 day free trial of Acronis Backup Cloud. Flexiant has been named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Management and received the Info-Tech Research Group Trendsetter Award for two consecutive years.
