Backup product secures local reseller support

Resellers LANTech and DTSL have signed agreements with Blackboxbackup, a Wellington-based start-up that claims its services will radically reduce the cost of backup.

“We have now completed a proof of concept trial for the Blackboxbackup system and it passed with flying colours in all respects,” says DTSL’s Wellington regional manager Rob McDonald.

“It is highly attractive for our customers. We particularly like the unique features including DTSL’s ability to retain control and management of our customers and the absence of software licensing.

“Best of all, we welcome the extremely attractive pricing model for an enterprise-scale, world-class software product compared to other offerings in the market.”

LANTech’s managing director Paul McQinland says he has a number of clients who have expressed a strong interest in moving away from the traditional data backup systems (such as tape) and are looking for an online backup system.

“As a reseller, the Blackboxbackup product offers us a number of competitive advantages. This model gives us the ability to bundle Blackboxbackup as part of our service offering and add value for our clients, by offering additional services around the solution.”

Blackboxbackup is the Australasian wholesaler for the ATTIX5 backup and recovery software, says Blackbox founder and chief executive Bryan Hall.

“We’ve radically turned international licensing and cost structures on their head, to open the way for affordable online backup storage for large enterprises and small to medium businesses,” he says.

“There are no entry fees and we have dramatically lowered usage fees across the board for automated backup online.”

Hall says monthly retail charges are significantly lower than $1 per gigabyte.

“There is a single price for each service option for all data to be backed up for an unlimited number of services or PCs. There are no agent or plug-in software licences or pricing and no licensing compliance issues.

“Data is stored only in the country of origin and there is no international network traffic”.
