Introducing Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers

On Monday October 26 2015 Veeam announced a new offering called Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers.  Here is an excerpt from the press release explaining what this is:

Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers, available through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, streamlines the delivery of Veeam-powered backup services (including BaaS) for service providers, including resellers interested in launching a service provider business. It provides a “business-in-a-box” by including remote monitoring and management of customer backups via a service provider portal for administrative and billing purposes, and a customer portal for basic self-service monitoring and configuration. For both the established service provider or for partners wishing to carve out new opportunities for themselves as a service provider, this new offering provides the ideal foundation to deliver value-added services to customers and drive competitive advantage.

Integrated with Veeam Cloud Connect for Service Providers and available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Veeam Managed Backup Portal for Service Providers makes it easy to acquire new customers and build new revenue streams through the following capabilities:

  • Simplified customer on-boarding: With a service provider administration portal, creating new customer accounts, provisioning services, and even managing customer billing and invoicing is easier than ever
  • Streamlined remote monitoring and remote management: Daily monitoring and management of
    customers’ jobs is made simple and convenient, and can be done securely through a single port over
    SSL/TLS (no VPN required)
  • Multi-tenant customer portal: Clients remain engaged with a customer portal where they can set up users
    and locations, easily monitor backup health, review cloud repository consumption and manage monthly
    billing statements.

Below are 2 screenshots of the portal from the service provider’s perspective:
