BluPointe Partner-driven, Brandable Backup and Disaster Recovery Announces No-deposit, No-contract and No Long-term Commitment for Resellers of Its Cloud Technology

BluPointe DRS owner Ron Roberts this week announced the decision to make BluPointe’s state-of-the-art backup and disaster recovery technology more available by dropping requirements for contracts, deposits or long-term commitments for resellers. The decision comes after a disaster-filled 2013 brought serious weather events that caught many businesses off guard without dependable cloud or air backup strategies in place.

Record cold temperatures across the Northern United States and Canada contributed to the many causes of data loss for businesses without dependable backup and disaster recovery technology in place. According to Roberts, many businesses that experience catastrophic data loss are forced to close.

“Scientists believe that dangerous weather events will continue to wreak havoc in 2014 and beyond, which means anyone who has avoided getting a cloud based backup plan and disaster recovery solution in place is playing Russian roulette with their data,” Roberts says. “We believe so strongly in our BluPointe cloud backup and disaster recovery products, we have decided to make it easy and affordable for our resellers to offer BluPointe products to their customers.

“It’s a win-win for all our partners.”

BluPointe offers a variety of onsite and remote backup products exclusive to BluPointe resellers, service providers and backup partners.

“BluPointe data backup and recovery solutions offer total protection for servers so your data can survive in any conditions and your doors can remain open for business,” Roberts says. “BluPointe can perform local image backup and recovery from USB, NAS, BDR devices or a physical server (using similar or dissimilar hardware.) and we do it through our extensive reseller partners.”
