Managed service provider Miosa 24 Selects Acronis Backup Cloud to solve SMB data protection challenges
Backup from any system, device and reliable recovery to any destination at an affordable price.
Miosa 24, a specialist full-service MSP serving SMEs, has selected Acronis Backup Cloud as its back-up platform. The solution is geared to protect both internal and customer systems and data.
For the past 16 years, Miosa 24 has managed IT services for small and medium-sized businesses. Headquartered in Centurion, Miosa 24 is a one-stop shop for all IT requirements, including tailored system design, hardware, software, managed services, consulting, and support.
As an MSP that promises to manage all of its customers' IT needs and support, Miosa 24 puts particular emphasis on affordable data protection and business continuity.
"Information is the lifeblood of every business, and perhaps one of the greatest challenges for a modern business is its management," says Johan van Zyl, CEO of Miosa 24. "We provide the in-depth expertise and experience to design and implement complete company-wide IT infrastructures to control how information is created, processed, distributed, and protected in a secure and cost-efficient manner.
"From initial appraisals to design, planning, and installation, Miosa 24's dedicated team provides a solution that meets each customer's exact needs and budget," Van Zyl explains.
"At Miosa 24, one call does it all. Our managed IT service combines IT consultancy, hosted services and on-going IT support - allowing customers to outsource all of those essential but time-consuming tasks to our team of specialists.
"For this reason, it is critical that we choose our solution platforms very carefully," Van Zyl continues. "Our customers absolutely rely on us to ensure their data is safe and that their systems and business information can be fully recovered in the event of a compromise or failure.
Van Zyl says the choice of a reliable, scalable and cost-effective backup platform is critical for the MSP as well as their customers.
After an extensive evaluation of many options, Miosa 24 selected Acronis Backup Cloud because of its all-inclusive offering of an easy-to-manage service that backs up any data from any source and recovers to any destination or system.
According to Van Zyl, "the beauty of Acronis Backup Cloud is that no matter the source: private cloud, public cloud, physical servers, virtual servers, PCs, or Macs, our customers can back up and restore anything - individual files, disks, or entire systems - in minutes. We could not ask for a better trusted solution to support our business for backup and disaster recovery," enthuses Van Zyl.
"Besides the fact that Acronis Backup Cloud does as it promises and works 100% of the time, we have good support from the Acronis team in terms of training for our technical teams and our customers.
"Of course, over the past eight years we've developed a close working relationship with local Acronis distributor Synapsys," Van Zyl observes.
Customers are responding enthusiastically to the Acronis Backup Cloud backup-as-a-service business model, Van Zyl says. "It will allow for our customers to have leaner costs, calculate what the usage will be, and have the flexibility of not having to purchase internal tech to support their smaller business.
"It is also relatively easy to show them the value of this service to their company no matter how big or small," says Van Zyl. "With the well-designed interface, Miosa 24's engineers are able to check backup logs and track the status of each customer and system backups on a daily and/or hourly basis."
Acronis Backup Cloud is an easy-to-use and easy-to-implement backup/recovery service ideally suited to MSPs servicing their customers' data protection requirements. The platform improves data protection with local and cloud backup of any data from any source and recover to any destination and system.
"This solution reduces our IT team's workloads and brings peace of mind with safe and proven technology," Van Zyl says.
"An important benefit for us as an MSP is that Acronis Backup Cloud pricing is basically 'pay-as-you-grow'. This cost-effective business model has been key during the sales process for customers.
"Furthermore, the platform scales easily with cloud Web-based management, and that maximises customer protection with broad platform support," Van Zyl concludes.
