The day we've all been waiting for has arrived. We're thrilled to announce that Continuity247®, our new fully managed backup and disaster recovery (BDR) platform, has been released to all partners! In April, we offered a Partner Beta program to give you an exclusive preview of the platform – and a chance to experience the Continuity247 difference for yourself – and so far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you to all who participated.
The platform has also been well received throughout the market:
“Backup and disaster recovery provide almost immediate ROI opportunities and a low-cost entry to the cloud for MSPs, especially when there is a strong end-user demand. The Continuity247 service enables Continuum’s MSP partners to rapidly get into the booming market for cloud-based BDR. And Continuum’s integrated RMM and NOC are good differentiators for service providers.” ~Dave Simpson, Senior Storage Analyst with 451 Research~
Now, we're inviting our partners to begin your FREE 45 – Day evaluation! Test drive our new flexible, hardware independent platform with local and hybrid packages, pooled storage and monthly billing – all designed to meet your diverse client needs, maximize margins, and scale your MSP business.
About Continuity247, Our Unique BDR Platform
Continuity247 is fully managed by our industry-leading Network Operations Center(NOC), a team of certified technicians that proactively monitors, troubleshoots and remediates any problems to ensure backups run 24x7x365 for the small to medium sized business clients of our partners. These proactive services coupled with issue resolution minimize the time MSPs will spend dealing with BDR, allowing them to focus on strategies for business growth, rather than day-to-day IT issues.
The market's newest BDR player is built with proven backup technology and owned entirely by us. That means you won't be dependent on an outside third party for technical support. Powered by a world-renowned public cloud (IBM’s Cloud, SoftLayer infrastructure) and leveraging the acquired technology that's already protecting nearly 250,000 servers, we're excited to bring you this trusted, cloud based, and hardware-independent BDR solution.
Continuity247 allows MSPs to easily manage all clients’ backups from a single pane of glass with remote access to appliances, protected machines and the cloud. MSPs can also add Continuum’s intelligent Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform backed by our NOC with additional benefits across all infrastructure they support including alerting, integrated ticketing, remote control, scripting, patch management, antivirus software and reporting.
Since your various clients' backup needs differ, we've built our business continuity platform with several package options. Our flex package features pooled storage at the MSP level, allowing for easy optimized storage across clients and providing greater scalability and margins. Each of these Continuity247 packages are billed monthly so you can scale at your pace and buy only what you need when you need it.

For the month of May, we're offering Getting Started with Continuity247 Webinars every Thursday.

Between May and August 2015, we're hitting the road to bring our partners onsite technical trainings demonstrating the key features and benefits of Continuity247! These technical sessions review the advantages of Continuity247, setup procedures in the ITSupport portal, how to configure the Server Backup Manager and performing disaster recovery and file folder restoration as well as a review of the package options available.
