MSP360 Rolls Out Flat-Rate Storage on AWS

The new option lets channel pros pay $23 per terabyte per month for backup services and associated storage in Amazon S3 through one invoice, with no additional charges for download, egress, or API requests.

MSP360 has added flat-rate storage in the Amazon Web Services public cloud to its Managed Backup Service (MBS).

The new option, which mimics a previously introduced deal with cloud storage vendor Wasabi Technologies, lets channel pros pay $23 per terabyte per month for both backup services and associated storage in Amazon S3 through a single, unified invoice, with no additional charges for download, egress, or API requests. 

“This is an excellent story showcasing the power of working together with MSP360,” said Brian Helwig, the vendor’s CEO, in a media statement. “A number of our customers across the globe are now relying on and realizing the benefits of MSP360, powered by AWS, to dramatically lower the cost of their backups and leverage the scale and economies of the AWS cloud.”

MBS supports Microsoft Azure and Backblaze B2 as storage options in addition to AWS and Wasabi. Partners who prefer those platforms, however, must buy and pay for consumption-based storage space on their own. MSP360’s two flat-rate pricing plans both simplify storage procurement and add predictability to the user’s cost structure, and hence profitability.

According to MSP360, it is the only backup vendor in the industry at present offering flat-rate, no-fee storage on Amazon S3.

“Cloud-based backup and recovery solutions enable customers to save resources while also benefiting from AWS’s availability and security, said Sabina Joseph, general manager of Americas Technology Partners at AWS, in prepared remarks. “We are excited that MSP360 has built its managed backup solution on AWS as it provides flexibility and consistency allowing our shared customers to better manage operational costs.”

Formerly named CloudBerry Lab, MSP360 has been steadily expanding beyond its roots in backup services and file management toward offering a comprehensive suite of tools for managed service providers since 2019. The company introduced a remote endpoint control solution last September and an RMM system this June, with more tools to come.

“We were a backup company,” said Helwig to ChannelPro in July. “Now we’re a backup, remote connectivity, and endpoint management company. The next step is to really look at a robust PSA that gives you everything within one single pane of glass.”

The company is also preparing a revised partner program that will put it on a roadmap toward a channel-only sales model.
