eFolder Offers Partners an Upgrade Path for Legacy BDR Appliances

A new eFolder BDR Upgrade Program gives participating partners $1,000 for recycling BDR appliances and transitioning to an eFolder BDR appliance. By ChannelPro

eFolder, an Orlando-based supplier of cloud data protection, business continuity, and cloud file sync services for the IT channel, has created the eFolder BDR Upgrade Program, making it cost effective for partners to decommission legacy BDR units and transition to an eFolder BDR. The eFolder BDR Upgrade Program offers partners a $1,000 credit toward a new eFolder BDR when they trade in a legacy BDR appliance.

The eFolder BDR Upgrade Program provides access to eFolder's complete BDR product line, featuring eFolder BDR for ShadowProtect and eFolder BDR for AppAssure. eFolder BDRs enable MSPs and VARs to back up locally and perform on-site virtualization for up to 48 servers with a single appliance in the maximum configuration. In the case of site-wide disasters, eFolder BDRs also back up server images to the eFolder Cloud and permit various disaster recovery options, including cloud virtualization with the eFolder Continuity Cloud.

To participate in the program, partners purchase a new eFolder BDR appliance at $1,000 off and simply back up the same data to the new BDR and the eFolder Cloud. Following the purchase and new deployment, partners are required to ship their decommissioned legacy BDR appliance to eFolder. eFolder makes the process easy, supplying partners with free shipping to eFolder's recycling vendor.

The eFolder BDR Upgrade Program accepts trade-ins of competitive, legacy BDR brands and product lines, including Datto Siris (excluding Siris Lite) and Datto Viridian lines; SonicWALL CDP, all models; and Zenith Infotech, all models.
