Jan 14, 2009 : Keepit Storage Partners with Parallels


proserve.nl logo📅 - Making its online backup solution more widely available, Scandinavian software developer Keepit.com (keepit.com) has signed a long term distribution agreement with virtualization and automation provider Parallels (parallels.com) to bring its backup-solution to more than 10 million small and medium-sized businesses through Parallels' Service Provider network.

According to the company's Tuesday announcement, the deal will make Keepit.com's "ultra-simple ultra-sleek" online backup application available to Parallels' partner network. Based on IBM's Tivoli Storage Management solution, the Keepit application promises to remove the hassle businesses have traditionally faced when implementing secure offsite backup.

"This contract is a landmark in our efforts to become one of the leading providers of online backup," Keepit.com chief executive officer Frederik Schouboe said in a statement. "The SMB segment represents an unprecedented opportunity for cloud-based services such as Keepit.com Online Backup. Parallels is the perfect match for Keepit.com with a strong market position and partnerships with important industry players around the globe."

Critical of every application added to its network, Parallels SaaS division vice president Soeren Von Varchmin said partners will be able to benefit from being able to offer the new backup solution.

"With Keepit.com on board we can provide our partners with an even broader offering, incorporating strong online backup services which are both simple and easy to use," Von Varchmin said in a statement. "This enables our partners to build their own offerings, potentially increasing their revenue streams. As a result, we anticipate a long-lasting and fruitful partnership over the next many years with Keepit.com; helping to grow and secure the business of our clients."

In June 2008, Netherlands-based Internet service provider ProServe (proserve.nl) announced it would be using Parallels' Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 as the platform for its online backup solution.
