Probax continues strong partner growth in North America and strengthens its commitment to partners with new Canadian data centre

Probax has continued its strong global expansion by opening a new data centre presence in Canada. The investment includes deployment of Backup-as-a-Service, Archive-as-a-Service, Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service and Office 365 Backup & Archive infrastructure and services into strategic data centres in Beauharnois, Quebec.

Since launching in North America in early 2018, Probax has grown its global Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner base by 23% month over month, with growth excelling in the US and Canada. This strong performance is largely due to the company’s unique data protection solutions that allow partners to holistically manage and automate backup and business continuity offerings using Veeam, StorageCraft, Dropbox Business and Microsoft Office 365.

“Earlier this year we announced record growth in partner signings across North America and we have continued to see tremendous progress and success. That continued growth made opening a local data centre presence in Canada a straightforward decision.” says Sam Meegahage, CEO of Probax. “Our Canadian partners can now offer their clients a comprehensive suite of data protection solutions that will keep their data in Canada.

“We’ve seen significant growth and partner interest in Canada as a result of our recent 40% price reduction in Backup-as-a-Service cloud storage.” says Nadia Allan, VP of Sales. “Canada is a key component of Probax’s overall North American strategy and this expansion further strengthens our commitment to our Canadian partners. Recently, we attended the Toronto ASCII event and with over 150 MSPs in attendance, the message was clear - they love our solutions and pricing model, but they need their data kept in Canada. To the MSPs in attendance, we made the commitment to deliver a local footprint within 90 days and I am happy to report that we delivered on that promise.” Says Allan.
