Accelerite Unveils Disaster Recovery Software for MSPs
Rovius enables managed service providers (MSPs) to “replicate, convert, migrate and manage workloads across virtually any hypervisor, physical data center and cloud to reduce risks and to optimize workload performance,” according to Accelerite. The software also could provide MSPs with an ongoing recurring revenue source.
“We expect to see a significant impact in the managed services space by allowing MSPs to build ongoing recurring revenue services around Rovius,” an Accelerite spokesperson told MSPmentor. “For example, with Rovius an MSP can provide ongoing services in a monthly recurring model if they want to provide managed private cloud services around OpenStack or VMware. Alternatively, they can create services around Amazon Web Services (AWS) as well.”
Accelerite said Rovius allows customers and partners to manage and protect data and application workloads across and between public, private and managed clouds.
This software is designed to give users “choice, control and flexibility to manage and protect workloads in the data center,” Accelerite said, and could benefit both Accelerite’s customers and partners.
“With all the cloud options available today, we believe our customers and partners need both freedom and control. Many of our partners are operating their own clouds but would benefit from leveraging public clouds, [and] Rovius gives them the freedom of choice in what, where, when and how they work with clouds,” an Accelerite spokesperson added.
Accelerite shows its support for the OpenStack Foundation
Also last week, Accelerite officially became an OpenStack Foundation corporate sponsor.
The endpoint protection and recovery-as-a-service (RaaS) solutions provider said it plans to leverage OpenStack to tailor new and differentiated products and services to enterprises, cloud providers and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
“Companies like Accelerite help expand OpenStack’s footprint through their established expertise, partnerships and integrated solutions for cloud-based disaster recovery,” Heidi Bretz, the OpenStack Foundation’s director of business development, said in a prepared statement.
