Modular DPS Unveils MSP Aggregator Program; Fuels IT Service Provider Sales Growth for Cloud Data Protection

New Modular 360 Partner Program(TM) Offers Partner Access to Products, Services and Expertise to Enhanced Cloud Opportunities

TORONTO -- (Marketwire) -- 04/03/12 -- Modular Data Protection Services (DPS) Inc., a leader in cloud data protection for the channel servicing the SMB/SME market, today announced a new and innovative program for IT Services Providers looking for new methods to address growing customer demand for cloud data protection services. Through an alliance with the Intel Hybrid Cloud group, 6fusion Inc. and MSPexcellence, Modular DPS has built the Modular 360° Partner Program™, a comprehensive program which enables managed service provider (MSP) partners to deliver a complete data protection strategy to their SMB/SME clients by leveraging the respective offerings and expertise of the program's alliance members.

"Today's market is reaching the tipping point towards mass adoption of cloud data protection," said Eric Strong, President & CEO, Modular DPS. "This presents exponential growth potential for IT Service Providers that are ready with turnkey solutions that can drive valued business outcomes with a short time to market, low risk solution that's both flexible and cost effective. With the creation of the Modular 360° Partner Program™, we are offering partners just that. We've packaged together the products, expertise and services partners need so that they may quickly and effectively drive recurring revenue through a range of professional service options that will build equity in their practice."

The Modular 360° Partner Program™ aggregates all the necessary components to provide partners a complete data protection strategy which drives incremental MSP sales growth. Partner program members benefit from the additive program elements from each alliance member including:

  • The necessary data protection software, materials and service document templates as well as the sales and technical assistance from Modular DPS to enable partners to get up and running quickly. Powered by Asigra's widely recognized cloud data protection software platform.

  • Access to the Intel Hybrid Cloud program, from Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC), and the Intel AppUp(SM) Small Business Service catalog. Program partners can create custom client solutions from the catalog including server, business software and data protection components -- all in one, single client premise device. This appliance also acts as the local data storage repository and data collection point for transfer through the cloud to an offsite data vault.

  • Support from 6fusion Inc. with an optional end-to-end cloud management platform for workload distribution and a pay-per-use billable utility model. Program Partners can elect to protect data within Modular DPS' 6fusion environment or they can deploy and operate their own hosted data vault instance.

  • Knowledge base from MSPexcellence and access to its "MSPexcellence Playbook and Program for Cloud Solution Providers," for innovative and rapid MSP sales program enablement. This framework and tools enable program partners to develop and align their cloud services strategy and delivery roadmap within a three-month timeframe.

"The Modular 360° Partner Program™ has really helped me accelerate the delivery of my cloud services strategy," said Kevin Rickey, Owner of Automate Data Systems in Stoney Creek, Ontario. "The Modular team has worked closely with my own organization to help us not only acquire the technical components and expertise we required to setup and deploy data protection services to our clients, they have also really assisted us in our client facing engagements and we have begun capturing new services revenues as a result."

The Modular 360° Partner Program™ offers a number of additional exclusive benefits for authorized members. For more information, please visit: http://www.modulardps.com/360-partner-program.
