CloudBerry Provides OpenStack Support for Managed Backup Service

MSPs can now select OpenStack storage service to use with CloudBerry Managed Backup.

CloudBerry Lab, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, now provides OpenStack support for CloudBerry Managed Backup. With this offering, managed service providers (MSPs) can leverage OpenStack technology for customer cloud backup. Service providers can either run their own OpenStack deployments or use any OpenStack compatible storage provider such as Rackspace, HP Helion, or IBM SoftLayer with the option of running cloud backup via CloudBerry’s Managed Backup offering.

With this update, CloudBerry Managed Backup now also includes:

  • Multiple Cloud Storage Accounts Support – CloudBerry now enables MSPs to add multiple cloud storage back-end providers to their Managed Backup accounts allowing selecting OpenStack as the main storage, or add it as an additional storage account.
  • Backup History Management from the Control Panel – MSPs can monitor the backup history of their users directly from the Managed Backup control panel. Providers do not need to use third-party software (e.g., remote desktop applications, screenshots sharing software, etc.) to determine the progress of backup plans. Providers can manage all their users’ backup plans from a web interface.
  • Granular Administrative Permissions – MSPs can create sub-admin accounts with limited permissions in the Managed Backup Services control panel. Providers can specify specific functions that a sub-admin account could manage, such as creating, editing, and dropping users; managing licenses; managing and deploying backup/restore plans; and controlling billing issues.

“OpenStack allows MSPs to become more agile, reduce costs, and avoid vendor lock-in when it comes to the cloud,” says Alexey Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. “CloudBerry has realized that many service providers would like to leverage the advantages of OpenStack cloud backup, and by supporting OpenStack for Managed Backup, we now provide the tools MSPs need in order to easily and efficiently bring OpenStack to their customers and we do so securely with best-in-class encryption.”†
