COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 24, 2013) –– STORServer®, the leading provider of proven data backup solutions for the mid-market, announces today a partnership with Front-safe, a cloud backup enabling web portal, to deliver secure cloud backup and recovery services to managed service providers (MSPs) using public, private and hybrid clouds.

STORServer’s new MSP Appliance consists of a STORServer Backup Appliance installed at the datacenter of a certified MSP partner and Front-safe’s portal software, which manages and charges incoming customers. The solution has everything a partner needs to offer data protection as a service. End users buy the service through STORServer resellers, and the company then connects the orders to a certified MSP that provides first level support to the customer. STORServer offers support of Front-safe, IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM), STORServer Console (SSC) and any necessary hardware to the MSP.

Built on IBM TSM, STORServer offers a complete suite of enterprise backup appliances, software and services that solve today’s backup, archive and disaster recovery challenges.

Front-safe is the largest provider of public cloud backup services to businesses in Denmark. The award-winning Front-safe TSM Portal enables IT service providers to deliver their own IBM TSM infrastructure as a cloud service both directly to end customers and/or through OEM branded resellers. At the same time, the Front-safe TSM Portal enables large enterprises to deliver their IBM TSM infrastructure to remote locations in a private cloud.
