Intronis ECHOplatform Automates Bare Metal Restore for Faster Recovery

Intronis, Inc., a provider of world-class backup and data protection solutions for the IT channel, today announced complete Bare Metal Restore (BMR) is now available as part of its new Intronis ECHOplatform and flat-fee unlimited cloud and unlimited local storage pricing plan.

"By integrating BMR right into the Intronis ECHOplatform and U2 Pricing Plan, we're taking away the headache and added expense channel partners bear in having to ‘rebuild, restore, reboot,'" says Chuck DeLouis, vice president of product management, Intronis. "With our BMR solution channel partners have access to a much simpler, highly-automated complete recovery process that virtually eliminates configuration errors, reduces expenses, and speeds recovery time."

Available at no additional charge to Intronis channel partners, the new BMR functionality offers complete physical-to-physical (P2P) bare metal recovery and physical-to-virtual (P2V) BMR recovery options for greater flexibility and performance. These capabilities enable Intronis channel partners to choose from and deliver a variety of restore solutions such as: 
  • Recover back to the original system in the event of data corruption or hard drive failure
  • Recover to a replacement machine to address total system failure
  • Recover to a select point-in-time to resolve for data corruption or viruses
  • Restore physical images as virtual hard disks (VHD) to a local or network location
  • Restore protected images as a virtual machine (VM) by leveraging restored virtual hard disks
  • Mount recovered images as a drive to the same or different machine for file-level restore

"Integrating its BMR capabilities directly into the Intronis ECHOplatform and new pricing plan is a big win for Intronis channel partners and will certainly make it easier and more cost effective for us if and when our clients have to start over because of a system failure or corruption," says Eric Wakkuri, VP of DSTECH Inc. "What's great about Intronis is the technology works and the company listens to what its partners want, and then delivers it."

The new BMR functionality comes on the heels of several significant Intronis announcements including the new, all-in-one Intronis ECHOplatform, which delivers the industry's most secure, scalable, and comprehensive cloud backup and data recovery solution-supporting a variety of in-demand services, plug-ins, and extensions such as physical imaging, VMware and Hyper-V, as well as SQL and Exchange backup. The cloud backup and recovery leader also recently unveiled a disruptive pricing model called the Intronis U2 Plan, which radically simplifies pricing for channel partners by offering unlimited cloud and unlimited local storage at a fixed monthly cost. The new plans are helping hundreds of Intronis channel partners earn incremental business and expand their services with existing customers.

"The Intronis ECHOplatform, U2 Pricing Plan, and new, integrated BMR capabilities come together to create a perfect storm of opportunity for our existing channel partners and make an undeniable business case for solution providers and MSPs to switch to Intronis," says Neal Bradbury, vice president, channel development, Intronis. "Add to the mix our new partner enablement resources and it's easy to see how Intronis is helping our channel partners better market, sell, and support best-in-class cloud backup and data protection solutions that are simple, secure, and can easily scale to meet the needs of their clients."
