Agentless Backup Solution Proves to Be Core Feature in KineticD's Mid-Market Success

For System Integrators like Cycom, KineticCloud Backup's Agentless Capabilities Protect Larger Data Sets, Saves Time and Simplifies Data Backup and Recovery

TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KineticD™, known for its cloud backup and data recovery services for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced wide spread usage of its agentless backup capabilities by its channel partners. As a core feature of KineticCloud™ Backup for Servers, the agentless capability manages hybrid cloud data backup processes from a single backup console across multiple systems and platforms such as Windows, MAC or Linux, drastically simplifying the deployment and maintenance of cloud backup solutions.

Among the key benefits that IT administrators and channel partners realize is the power to manage data backup processes across environments from one single console, thus alleviating the need to install software clients on every system throughout the business network. Additionally, KineticD's hybrid cloud backup feature provides unlimited local backup, independent of cloud backup sets, enabling a variety of backup and retention policies per data type.

Al Leela, president at Cycom, a systems integrator working in the health care market, discovered first-hand how valuable this feature is to his customers and his business. After installing the software to a client's host machine, he quickly realized that by using the agentless backup technology he was able to manage his customer's backup needs through a single interface.

"We appreciate this added feature and immediately discovered an important value-add for our business," said Leela. "Through this agentless backup technology, we are able to manage our clients' data from one single console saving us time and valuable resources."

The agentless technology is only one of the key benefits of the KineticCloud Backup for Servers product. The feature not only saves time and resources, but also reduces costly device fees. KineticD provides this additional feature for only $6.95 per month for the server, with no device fees and unlimited local vault capacity.

"System integrators, such as Cycom, appreciate the benefits of a single management console that allows them to deploy a backup solution simply and easily," said Jamie Brenzel, CEO of KineticD. "The agentless backup capability of KineticCloud Backup for Servers has become a valuable feature in our mid-market success while providing our end-users and channel partners with the ability to manage and secure their data from a single management console."

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
