MSPs: Getting the Most from Google Cloud With StorageCraft


There are plenty of things to think about when looking at public cloud services. With this comparison of its services—mapped to similar offerings from other cloud service providers (CSPs)—Google Cloud has done a lot of the work for you. The list of services is incredibly long, but what stands out are the areas where Google Cloud delivers advanced technologies that aren’t available elsewhere. The fact that Google Cloud fills those gaps, among other reasons, is why StorageCraft, an Arcserve company, became a Google Cloud partner.

How Google Cloud Makes a Difference for MSPs

For our MSP partners, the power of Google Cloud combined with StorageCraft’s unmatched software and tools gives you an unbeatable data protection solution to offer your clients. For starters, StorageCraft and Google Cloud help you—and your customers—avoid vendor lock-in with a commitment to open source. That gives everyone more flexibility in their technology investments as their IT needs continue to evolve.

You never want to let your customers down. Google Cloud sets a standard for reliability with 99.95 percent availability and no scheduled downtime. And Google Cloud is known as an easy-to-use platform that even offers built-in smart analytics and artificial intelligence (AI), making these advanced technologies more accessible and easier for your customers to deploy across their operations. Most important, Google Cloud defends your customers’ businesses against online threats using a secure-by-design infrastructure with built-in protection.

StorageCraft + Google Cloud: DRaaS Made Better

StorageCraft disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) gives your customers access to all the powerful tools, operational efficiency, elasticity, and scalability of Google Cloud while delivering complete business continuity with advanced, orchestrated failover capabilities. Here are a few more key benefits that come with adding StorageCraft DRaaS with Google Cloud to your offerings:

Enterprise-Grade Protection

Your customers can count on meeting their business continuity and disaster recovery readiness objectives because StorageCraft DRaaS makes it possible for them to spin up their entire infrastructure in a single click, with pre-staged orchestration to virtualize machines in the cloud. Google Cloud and StorageCraft can also speed replication rates and let your customers instantly restore data remotely, meeting the most stringent RPO and RTO requirements.

Simple Management, Complete Control

StorageCraft DRaaS offers a simple, self-service portal that puts your customers in control of their data. The portal gives one-stop access to highly customizable and easy-to-manage cloud-based disaster recovery, with 24/7 monitoring.

Pay As They Grow

With consumption-driven billing fully integrated with the Google Cloud Marketplace, your customers only pay for what they use. That gives you a great starting point for bringing new customers on board, knowing that they won't get hit by a considerable upfront expense for cloud storage they don’t need. The combination of StorageCraft DRaaS and Google Cloud changes the economics of data recovery, making it possible for you to offer unmatched business continuity solutions for all data environments, regardless of size, complexity, or location. For MSPs, that translates into ongoing revenue streams that bolster your customers' confidence in your capabilities.

Better Business Continuity

StorageCraft DRaaS gives your customers the ability to test or execute a failover with a single click of a button. And its offsite disaster recovery capabilities offer everything from file and folder recovery and machine virtualization, as noted, to instant failover of an entire site and network. Plus, StorageCraft’s privacy and security measures ensure that only authorized users can access stored backup images.

With the combined power of StorageCraft and Google Cloud, your customers can customize cloud storage to fit their needs, whether their IT environment is small and straightforward or large and complex. They can also choose the service level based on their needs. The results? Lower costs, control over cloud settings, and predictable monthly pricing. And that’s a recipe for bringing in new prospects while gaining more traction with existing customers.
