Boost for resellers with Plan B’s ‘pay as you grow’ NZ Cloud Backup

28 Oct 14

Westcon Imagine 2014 - In processing over 100,000 backup jobs to the cloud every day, Plan B shines bright as one of New Zealand’s leading backup and business continuity specialists.

Powering an Asigra-based backup service hosted by Southern Cross Data Centres, NZ Cloud Backup is available exclusively to the reseller channel through Westcon Group.

“Plan B provides a ‘ready-made’ solution that resellers can package in with their other services to provide an opex model to their customers from day one,” says Ian Forrester, Managing Director, Plan B.

“It removes the need for resellers or their customers to make any capital investment or upfront commitments.”

Offering both scalability and flexibility, Forrester says NZ Cloud Backup in a nutshell is a truly ‘pay as you grow’ model, providing a great opportunity for resellers to build an on-going monthly revenue stream without any upfront investment.

“Plan B has built its business on the annuity revenue model so partnering with Westcon to enable resellers to make the move is a win-win situation for all,” adds Forrester, who heads New Zealand’s largest provider of private cloud backup and business continuity services.

With all backed up data stored locally in the land of the long white cloud, Forrester says the deal allows Plan B to leverage its existing infrastructure and experience as a managed service provider to provide solutions to a wider audience through their existing IT providers.

As Westcon ramps up its investments in their new cloud platform, Forrester believes as a leading ICT distributor in New Zealand it is well positioned to reach the target market for NZ Cloud Backup across the channel.
