Redstor, an international data management software as a service (SaaS) business, has announced new services designed to transform the way Microsoft partners manage and protect customer data in Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365.

By adopting Redstor’s offering, service providers can use a single application to:

Redstor’s product is designed to complement native Microsoft technology, so partners can enhance their application transformation services while increasing their Azure consumption.

The smart data management platform allows IT administrators with limited expertise to protect and recover all data, including any data held in Kubernetes clusters on Azure, in just minutes.

The AI engine offers an additional layer of protection by detecting malware before it can compromise backup data.

The deployment of AI-driven, malware-scanning technology enables Redstor partners to iterate and scale their threat-detection service easily to global Azure locations in Asia-Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States and Africa.

Redstor’s smart data management solution – which includes backup and recovery for Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams and OneNote – is now accessible through the Azure Marketplace and AppSource.

Redstor’s InstantData technology enables user-driven access and recovery to be live-streamed from cloud-based backups and archives instantly, reducing recovery time objectives (RTOs) and removing ransomware threats associated with on-premises backup appliances.

The debut of these product enhancements follows a year in which Redstor has joined the Microsoft Partner Network, earned co-sell ready status as part of the Microsoft One Commercial Partner programme, and grown internationally with new partners.

“Our new offerings leverage the Microsoft Azure data and AI stack to offer end-user customers an enhanced layer of data protection,” said Paul Evans, CEO, Redstor. “Azure enables us to scale geographically at speed, and it gives partners a greater level of flexibility in deploying data management solutions.”

“Redstor is bringing new solutions to market that add value to data management. AI-driven malware protection is a great example of this, providing Microsoft partners with an additional layer of security for their customers,” said John 'JG' Chirapurath, Vice-President, Azure AI, Data and Edge. “Redstor continues to offer our partner community enhanced data protection and the ability to drive Azure consumption and increase repeatable revenue streams.”
