Backup and data protection specialist Intronis has added Bare Metal Restore (BMR) as part of its new Intronis ECHOplatform and flat-fee unlimited cloud and unlimited local storage pricing plan, available via channel partners.
“By integrating BMR right into the Intronis ECHOplatform and U2 Pricing Plan, we’re taking away the headache and added expense channel partners bear in having to ‘rebuild, restore, reboot,’” said Chuck DeLouis, vice president of product management at Intronis. “With our BMR solution channel partners have access to a much simpler, highly-automated complete recovery process that virtually eliminates configuration errors, reduces expenses and speeds recovery time.”
Available at no additional charge to Intronis channel partners, the BMR functionality offers physical-to-physical (P2P) bare metal recovery and physical-to-virtual (P2V) BMR recovery options to support a variety of restore solutions:
- Recover back to the original system in the event of data corruption or hard drive failure
- Recover to a replacement machine to address total system failure
- Recover to a select point-in-time to resolve for data corruption or viruses
- Restore physical images as virtual hard disks (VHD) to a local or network location
- Restore protected images as a virtual machine (VM) by leveraging restored virtual hard disks
- Mount recovered images as a drive to the same or different machine for file-level restore
“Integrating its BMR capabilities directly into the Intronis ECHOplatform and new pricing plan is a big win for Intronis channel partners and will certainly make it easier and more cost effective for us if and when our clients have to start over because of a system failure or corruption,” said Eric Wakkuri, vice president of channel partner DSTECH Inc. “What’s great about Intronis is the technology works and the company listens to what its partners want, and then delivers it.”
The BMR functionality comes on the heels of the launch of the Intronis ECHOplatform, which supports a range of in-demand services, plug-ins and extensions such as physical imaging, VMware and Hyper-V, as well as SQL and Exchange backup. The cloud backup and recovery leader also recently unveiled a pricing model called the Intronis U2 Plan, which simplifies pricing for channel partners by offering unlimited cloud and unlimited local storage at a fixed monthly cost.
“The Intronis ECHOplatform, U2 Pricing Plan, and new, integrated BMR capabilities come together to create a perfect storm of opportunity for our existing channel partners and make an undeniable business case for solution providers and MSPs to switch to Intronis,” said Neal Bradbury, vice president of channel development at Intronis. “Add to the mix our new partner-enablement resources and it’s easy to see how Intronis is helping our channel partners better market, sell and support best-in-class cloud backup and data protection solutions that are simple, secure and can easily scale to meet the needs of their clients.”
