LOS ANGELES, CA (November 20, 2017) – At last week’s IT Nation in Orlando, Florida, Cal Net Technology Group — a California-based managed services provider (MSP) — announced a new partnership with ConnectWise and Infrascale to deliver a game-changing approach to business disaster recovery (BDR). The cloud-based disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solutions streamline business operations, reduce operating costs, and increase business productivity and opportunity. Infrascale’s DRaaS offering is unique in that it doesn’t require a major hardware investment and uses superior technology — all for a significantly lower price.
“This one-two punch delivers a world-class disaster recovery solution at a drastically reduced cost compared to other DRaaS alternatives,” said James Hwang, CEO of Cal Net Technology Group. “Infrascale’s backup, data recovery, and ransomware is a win-win-win for Cal Net’s entire IT ecosystem. With execution of our Infrascale partnership, we have the ability to halve our DRaaS operating costs and double our total addressable BDR market.”
Earlier this month, Infrascale, together with ConnectWise, announced a strategic distribution partnership to bring alternative DRaaS Solutions to MSPs and IT resellers. Cal Net will now partner with the two companies to deliver a solution that is as significantly more cost-effective as it is advanced.
The partnership was officially announced at last week’s IT Nation, a ConnectWise event that attracts technology developers and providers from across the country. Hwang joined CEOs Arnie Bellini of ConnectWise and Ken Shaw of Infrascale to discuss the partnership and the powerful solution that resulted from the three companies working together.
Hwang described one of the major components of the new integrations, “Bi-directional support tickets deliver a better experience by automating ticket closures. Whenever Infrascale Cloud Backup or Infrascale Disaster Recovery generates system alerts, support tickets are automatically created in ConnectWise Manage. When those alarms are resolved, the appropriate support tickets in ConnectWise are automatically closed.”
These new integrations allow Cal Net to deliver a better, more efficient experience for their clients. The solution improves everything from data storage and retrieval to billing information and inventory reporting — all of which will now be available on ConnectWise Manage, a comprehensive platform that hosts all of the information in one place to improve efficiency and accessibility of client data.
