Probax releases latest version of cloud backup platform Featured

By

Perth-based IT solutions wholesaler Probax has released a new version of its cloud backup platform after more than a year of in-house development.

The Probax 2.0 release allows MSPs to combine all of their clients’cloud backups onto a single platform, underpinned by cost effective storage on Australian servers.

And, according to Probax national sales manager Kyle Walter, with the new release IT providers who use Probax to replicate, store, manage and report on their clients’ backups will see reductions in time and cost of up to 80%.

Probax 2.0 vital stats across all users are displayed on one screen, and 3rd party software licensing is also handled by Probax.

Walter says that, in addition, MSPs have access to monthly licenses that can scale as needed, doing away with expensive upfront licensing.

Development from Probax version 1.0 to version 2.0 took 13 months and this latest release was built by taking into account feedback from the Probax Partner Network. Development was led by Probax managing director Kevin Allan.

Extensive development of this new version of Probax sees the inclusion of Veeam CloudConnect, support for most NAS devices, FilePLUS backup software and ShadowProtect.

Walter says Probax is just the 3rd cloud provider in Australia to be recognised by Veeam as a reputable partner and provider of storage specifically for Veeam backups, and he flagged that more integrations are being developed, with approaches by other vendors to use Probax to build integrations for their software.

Walter also stresses that as a vendor neutral solution, Probax allows MSPs to offer the most appropriate backup solution to their clients, using high performance Australian servers as the off-site component of their backup plan.

Commenting on Probax 2.0, Kevin Allan said: “We work hard to address the issues that IT providers experience with off-site backups - even going so far as to fix known bugs in 3rd party backup software so that it performs flawlessly in conjunction with Probax.

“The end result is our partners spend less money on storage, less time managing backups, less time troubleshooting, and more time doing the high value work their clients pay for.”

According to Walter, Probax resellers are doing well with Probax.

“The best thing for us is seeing our resellers rise through the ranks of the Partner Program. Ten-fold growth (i.e from 1TB to 10TB) in 12 months is not uncommon amongst the high performing providers – and they’re earning substantial monthly revenue by doing so.”

Commenting on Probax, Michael Jolakoski from Anittel in Western Australia said:

“We work with Probax to help us manage a cloud backup portfolio that exceeds 80TB of compressed client data – no small task.

“With branches and clients across the country, we need simplicity, and having been offered the opportunity to test Control v2.0 before it went live I can only see it is getting better for us, and better for our clients.
