Why Host Your Data on a VCSP Cloud Repository?

First, you should connect with a VCSP because they allow you to unlock access to VCC. Second, the gold standard of secure backups is the Three-Two-One rule. This stipulates that you should have at least three copies of your data, stored on at least two different mediums, with at least one of these backups located offsite. This may seem excessive, but it is the most highly recommended and widely practiced method of securely backing up data. A VCSP like Sherweb can provide you with the cloud storage space to complete the last two components of the three-two-one backup rule. If you are currently not storing your offsite backup in the cloud with a VCSP, you may want to consider these points:

  • You will save on the upfront costs of an additional onsite backup and the continual cost of maintenance
  • You pay only for the resources you use
  • You can restore your backup quickly to Sherweb Performance Cloud
  • You will benefit from the most cost effective solution for a cold disaster recovery site
  • Backing up your data with a VCSP is simple!
  • VCSPs employ experts who work with backups, cloud servers and cyber security and are up to date in the latest technological changes
  • Your data will be securely stored in a datacenter that is separate from your other backups. This will provide an extra layer of security against natural disasters and other unforeseeable circumstances.

Who Can Benefit from VCSP ?

A VCSP like Sherweb can serve both end customers and Veeam license resellers. As an end customer, you can work directly with Sherweb to set up your backup needs. As a reseller, you can partner with Sherweb so that you and your customers benefit from the one-stop shop experience offering VCC and other Sherweb hosting solutions. Your Veeam offer for your customers will be completed with Sherweb’s flexible cloud hosting services (including white label, co-branded or advisor). This will make you more valuable to your customers.
