MSPs: Mastering Bare-Metal Restores
It’s never a safe idea to not take a proactive approach when performing bare-metal restores with your managed clients. Running backups on a regular basis is a must for any MSP in today’s times. You’ll have better customer data protection, and it gives your customer the peace of mind that, “Hey, my data is safe and secure,” in case of disaster.
Although many MSPs have become true pros with backups and restores, it’s safe to say that many have not mastered the process or don’t offer the services at all–thus missing out on a true revenue stream.
Any new or continued customer interaction can increase your overall value and credibility, which, of course, can equal more revenue. Offering bare-metal backup/restores is a no brainer.
If a customer’s data is lost forever, restoring onto an existing system can be unthinkable. Bare-metal restores protect an MSP and its customers from those situations.
MSPs looking to master Bare-metal restores should look no further than IDrive BMR.
