Managed service providers (MSPs) are playing an increasingly critical role in helping businesses’ digital transformation dreams come true – including their backup and disaster recovery initiatives. In fact, a recent 451 Research study, commissioned by Microsoft®, revealed 56% of organizations leveraging managed services indicated they were also looking to utilize a managed backup and recovery service.
This need presents a massive opportunity for MSPs looking to drive new revenue and differentiate themselves, by optimizing existing backup services and extending their portfolio to include cloud backup and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). Yet despite these clear advantages, a larger, more diverse set of offerings raises the question: How do I efficiently manage my growing portfolio?

- Easier SLA attainment with faster, more efficient issue remediation
- Streamlined accounting through the consolidation of invoices
Veeam Availability Console, a free, cloud-enabled management platform built specifically for service providers, allows you to remotely manage and monitor the availability of your customers’ virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads – protected by Veeam solutions – with ease. The soon-to-be released Veeam Availability Console (Update 1), features native integration with ConnectWise Manage®. This integration makes it easy for service providers to deliver more value to their customers, while also reducing administration by consolidating the management, monitoring, and billing of multiple services – including data protection – into a single pane of glass.
