Asigra, MSPexcellence Partner for Cloud Storage Education
Cloud storage platform provider Asigra and channel coach organization MSPexcellence have partnered up for the Cloud Backup Business Acceleration Program, an initiative to help MSPs and cloud providers build out their cloud storage businesses. David Smith, Asgira’s senior director of Partner Management, is heading up the effort and providing the technological core, while MSPexcellence lends its management expertise.
The program is built on the MSPexcellence Playbook, which the two organizations are going to use to help partners develop and scale out their business using Asigra technology, according to the press release. Moreover, the Cloud Backup Business Acceleration Program will include go-to-market strategies and cloud migration paths, custom-developed for Asigra partners.
Here’s what Asigra Executive Vice President Eran Farajun had to say in a prepared statement:
“We have always believed that by combining our technology with effective marketing and sales tools for building a cloud backup and recovery business we were ensuring success for our partners. Our partnership with MSPexcellence builds on that philosophy with a definitive playbook for building an MSP business that capitalizes on the convergence of cloud computing with traditional methods of IT service delivery.”
I only have one big question: why didn’t David Smith mention this when I talked to him one-on-one at last week’s Asigra Partner Summit? Either way, add Asigra to the list of providers trying to help MSPs build a cloud business.
