Backup Software Wholesaler Taking on the Big Players


Corporate Backup are enabling IT vendors to sell and manage their own brand of backup software, using existing Tier 3 data centres across multiple sites or as an end to end solution on their own hardware.

Perth, Australia, December 18, 2011 --(PR.com)-- After spending five years as an Offsite Backup retailer targeted toward SME’s, Corporate Backup is just finishing its first year as a wholesale-only Offsite Backup Provider. Managing Director of Corporate Backup Kevin Allan says, “The key has been helping IT vendors through the process of starting their own Backup division instead of merely selling storage space.”

“We do everything IT vendors need to get them making money from the cloud and we pride ourselves in making them ‘profitable from day one.’” Allan continues, “Our graphic designers create custom branded software based on their logos, we give them our marketing material and we train their sales team. We can also help get their direct debiting setup and give them a featured position on the Offsite Backup Guide website and twitter feed.”

Allan says this success has allowed for some huge expansion. “We have grown very quickly in 2011 and this has allowed us to provide storage for 2 petabytes of client data, take on 6 new staff and even build our own data centre in the CBD. Prospective clients can tell we’re a Company that’s going places and they want to be a part of it.”

Corporate Backup has been getting rave revues from their Partners. Gavin Byfield from Local IT has had great success with his own backup service. “We have been using Corporate Backup since the start of the year and it is a huge increase to my bottom line. It’s an easy sell to my clients and so far I’ve generated revenue in excess of $20,000. For a small business like mine this is a huge return on investment.”

It’s not only small businesses that can benefit from partnering with a wholesale offsite backup provider. Geoff runs an IT Company with over 40 staff. “With the Corporate Backup white label offering being so transparent we push it as our own product on our own system and our clients don’t know the difference. If we ever have any backup-related issues we call or email Support and generally hear back within minutes.” Geoff had previously tried to roll-out an in-house solution using popular Offsite Backup software. “We went down the route of deploying our own servers for Offsite Backup but just couldn’t get the system working properly. With Corporate Backup managing the backend, we have not had to deploy any of our own servers or take on more staff. It has saved us a huge amount of time, money and work.”

Behind the success, the Corporate Backup team have faced some challenges. “A by-product of our transparency is difficulty in marketing our services to a wider audience,” said Allan. “IT companies treat the software as part of their intellectual property and as such, are not in a position to pass on referrals.”

“We are the only Offsite Backup Company that does what we do.” Allan says that “The goal is to provide a complete end-to-end solution that is cost effective, powerful, and with no need for IT companies to invest in their own hardware.” Allan continues, “There are a lot of businesses offering ‘backup as a service’, and we’ve seen a large number come and go. We’ve identified what works and what doesn’t, especially when it comes to building a sustainable business.”
