Memphis, TN, October 31, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Remote Backup Systems, Inc. (RBS), developer and distributor of RBackup™ online backup software on the web at http://remote-backup.com
, today announced that a growing number of technology service companies are choosing its RBackup product to support their Software-as-a-Service initiatives.
Software as a service, or SaaS, is an emerging business model in which companies leverage the resources and expertise of offsite organizations to complete mission-critical, and often expensive or time-consuming, business processes. SaaS also allows organizations to access advanced business functionality at a cost that is typically much less than paying for licensed applications. SaaS pricing is usually based on a monthly fee.
Data backup is at once the most important and the most neglected technology-related task at many companies, and is also ideally suited for the SaaS delivery model. Backups are often low on a businesses priority chart- if they are not forgotten altogether - and performing the backups correctly can be an expensive proposition. Because key components of online backup software are hosted remotely, users typically don't need to invest in additional hardware. SaaS removes the need for organizations to handle backup software installation, setup, and daily upkeep and maintenance.
“As companies continue to embrace online data backup in record numbers, online backup via SaaS is emerging as the preferred adoption model at many of these organizations.” commented Tommy Gardner, Director of Sales and Marketing for RBS. “On the service provider side of this equation, remote backup is perhaps the ideal IT service for distribution through SaaS - as it requires low resource dedication and provides an additional recurring revenue stream.”
