Probax v2.0 is Gearing Up for Release Early 2015

The next-generation Backup Management Platform for Australian IT companies is getting ready for release
Since the release of Probax V1.0 in October 2013, the Australian IT service provider channel has voted with its feet and pushed over a Petabyte-worth of cloud backups to the platform.
 
Corporate Backup is the company behind the development and distribution of Probax. "We're excited about the impending release of the second version of Probax" said Technical Director Kevin Allan. "We've built on extensive feedback from the network of resellers, making sure that we are walking the fine line between innovation and actually delivering what the channel is asking for. Features like on-cloud recovery for ShadowProtect backups, as well as file-level recovery straight out of the portal will make life even easier for our resellers, speeding up recovery times and reducing cost of management even further" said Allan.
 
The Probax Platform initially caught the attention of the IT industry by offering single-pane management of the most prevalent backup solutions being used by Australian businesses. "By integrating products like ShadowProtect & Veeam into Probax, and building a really easy to use management interface around them, we're able to save service providers a huge amount of time and money when it comes to managing backups. Version 2 is going to take ease of management to the next level, particularly for resellers with huge numbers of clients using the platform. " said Kyle Walter, Head of Sales for Corporate Backup.
 
The release of version 2 marks another milestone for Corporate Backup, who have been expanding aggressively since their switch to a wholesale model in 2010. "Ultimately, it's all about the channel, and the resellers who make it happen" said Walter. "We want to deliver a product that affects IT businesses two-fold with reduced operating costs, and increased monthly revenues. It's not uncommon for our partners to tell us that Probax is their highest margin product by a long, long way, and version 2 is only going to make things better for our channel.
