Looking for a white-label managed backup solution for offering managed backup service to your end customers? Ahsay Cloud Backup Suite is a robust, feature-rich, yet affordable white-label managed backup solution that can fulfill your need.

MSP-side Customer-side

  • Backup data can be hosted on physical or cloud object storage
  • Server-side replication to offsite server or public cloud
  • Live activities monitoring for backup, restore and replication
  • Daily consolidated email report for system administrator
  • Fully rebrandable into your own brandname
  • Comprehensive endpoint backup options, e.g. Exchange, SQL, Oracle, MySQL, Lotus Domino, VMware, Hyper-V, Office 365, cloud to cloud, etc.
  • Fast multi-thread incremental backup to your datacenter or your public cloud storage account
  • Data retention policy and file versioning
  • Daily and per job email reports to clients

Flexible deployment options

The whole Ahsay's solution is with flexible client-server architecture. AhsayCBS server-side centralized management console can be installed on your own backup server hosted in your datacenter, on cloud VM such as Microsoft Azure, or on backup appliances deployed in your customers' offices. Users' backup data can be stored on your own backup server, or on cloud storage such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, etc., or the locally deployed backup appliances. The AhsayOBM / AhsayACB client agents are for installing on the servers, workstations that need to be backed up. With proper configuration, your customers' data will be automatically backed up or replicated to your managed storage.

The following are some common deployment options that our existing partners adopted:
        Option 1: AhsayCBS and backup data hosted in your datacenter
        Option 2: AhsayCBS and backup data hosted in public cloud (hardwareless deployment)
        Option 3: Deploy backup appliance at customer's site and replicate to your datacenter
        Option 4: Deploy backup appliance at customer's site and replicate to dedicated replication appliance

Pros Cons
  • Zero hardware investment on MSP side.
  • Unlimited scalability on cloud VM and storage.
  • On demand usage fee for cloud VM and storage.
  • Customers get two backup copies, one at their local site for fast daily restoration, and the other in your cloud storage for disaster recovery.
  • Large initial backup data can be seeded to your cloud storage if your provider offers seeding service.
  • Your backup server hosted in cloud VM and storage are covered by your provider's SLA.
  • Might not be able to fulfill regulatory requirement on keeping backup data within customer's own country if your provider cannot offer hosting of VM and storage in your local country.

If you don't have any available server hardware and storage in datacenter, or you don't want to invest in and maintain any physical hardware for running your managed backup service, then you can deploy AhsayCBS on a cloud VM, and get your users' backup data stored on public cloud storage. The actual cloud storage used can be transparent to your customers, i.e. you can hide the name and logo of cloud storage by replacing them with generic icon and name.

Same as option 1, on each of your customers' machine, either install AhsayOBM or AhsayACB client backup application. With proper configuration of backup schedules and destinations, AhsayOBM or AhsayACB will automatically backup to their local storage (e.g. a file server) and your selected public cloud storage account, e.g. Azure Cloud Storage.

We suggest you to choose a cloud storage provider which allows you to seed data to the cloud storage with portal hard disk, e.g. Microsoft Azure. If so, for large initial backups, instead of backing up through the Internet, you can get the customer to seed the backup from their local machine to a portable hard drive, so that you can deliver the hard drive to your provider for seeding to your cloud storage account.

For casual data loss caused by accidental deletion, software failure, etc., your customers can quickly restore data from their local backup.

When a severe disaster strikes a customer's site, you can help them rebuild their hardware first, get AhsayOBM or AhsayACB installed on the new hardware, and then restore the backup data from your public cloud storage onto those new hardware through AhsayOBM and AhsayACB.

To speed up the restoration of large data, you can request your cloud storage provider to seed the backed up data to portable hard-drive from your cloud storage and deliver it your customer's site instead of going through the Internet.

You can increase the redundancy level of your cloud VM and storage by choosing geographic redundancy option to prevent data loss due to local cloud storage failure.
