How to maximize VM backups using our Control Panel

msp btn

Our ground-breaking Control Panel is a web-based, multi-tenant management tool.

Here's how businesses, organizations, IT resellers and consultants and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can use it with VM Backup and VM Backup for MSPs.

For IT Resellers, MSPs & VARs

Centrally manage and monitor all your customers' virtual machine (VM) backups from a single, easy-to-use, multi-tenant online console. You can also store customer backups to your servers and manage and monitor their backup storage through the console. MSPs can also configure and manage physical Windows server backups through this console.

Access to the console is free for our Partners & MSPs
