LogicNow Adds AWS EC2, Azure Support to MAX Backup Hybrid BDR

LogicNow has launched MAX Backup v15.0, a new version of its hybrid cloud backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution. What does MAX Backup v15.0 offer managed service providers (MSPs)? Here's everything you need to know.

LogicNow has released a new version of its hybrid cloud backup and disaster recovery (BDR) service that allows managed service providers (MSPs) to upgrade their customers from a backup-as-a-service (BaaS) offering to a disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) solution.

LogicNow said its new release, MAX Backup v15.0, delivers the most up-to-the minute protection. MAX Backup v15.0 backs up data 80 percent faster than before, LogicNow said, and makes standby images available in as little as 5 minutes after failure.

Additionally, LogicNow said MAX Backup v15.0's combination of recovery point and recovery time objectives can help MSPs better support their customers' BDR needs.

"Our mission is that no critical business data is ever lost again," Björn Bakker, LogicNow's head of product marketing, told MSPmentor. "We truly believe creating business continuity-as-a-service as a turnkey, hosted the way you want with a full pay-per-use model is a step closer in solving this challenge."

Other MAX Backup v15.0 features include:

  • Backup accelerator – Designed to reduce backup "pre-processing" time through continuous monitoring of changes.
  • Cloud recovery targets – With cloud recovery targets, MSPs can transition from BaaS to DRaaS by using a bring-your-public-cloud (BYPC) model.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 and Microsoft Azure support – Customers can use pay-per-use public cloud services such as AWS EC2 or Microsoft Azure as cloud recovery targets.

So what does MAX Backup v15.0 mean for MSPs and their customers?

Chris Groot, vice president of sales for MAX Backup & Recovery, pointed out that the new release can help MSPs become more efficient, as it enables them to "offer disaster recovery services where downtime will be measured in minutes rather than hours."
