Vembu Technologies: Qsource Networks
Qsource Networks is a managed network services company that offers outsourced IT services. The company teamed with Vembu StoreGrid to offer an online backup service as part of its Qmanage IT program for SMBs. All the customers were initially using tapes/tape drives for backup. They wanted to offer an online backup program to the customers. They chose StoreGrid because it was cost effective, easy to deploy and did not require many different external services like DNS, Active Directory. It was simple, easy to deploy for new clients, runs in the background, and provides good reporting for managing many different customers. Online backup is not extremely complex but can be time consuming without the right product. If one is going to deploy online backup services, make sure one takes the time to plan well, use good industry standard hardware and choose a product like Vembu StoreGrid. The software is not overly complex. They charge approximately $1 per GB and find that it is cost effective compared to tapes which were pretty expensive. Founded in 2004, Vembu Technologies is a leader in providing cost effective, network based, disk to disk backup software solutions. Vembu's flagship product StoreGrid, which backs up desktops and servers, comes in three editions. StoreGrid Service Provider Edition powers the managed online backup services business of over 1650+ Managed Service Providers worldwide!
