Further simplifying and accelerating real-time data recovery for channel partners, Intronis, a provider of backup and data protection solutions for the IT channel, this week announced the Winter Release ‘15 of its Intronis ECHOplatform.

The Intronis Winter Release ’15 introduces several new business-building features and core functionalities designed to help channel partners better support more complex cloud, virtualized and physical IT environments, grow their share of wallet with existing customers, and attract new business by offering a real-time, cloud-based data recovery solution that’s built to protect the business.

New key features within the Intronis ECHOplatform include:

Hyper-V Rapid Recovery: Enables channel partners to better support hybrid IT environments by offering Hyper-V environment recovery from local image-based storage in as fast as 30 seconds.

Imaging Rapid Recovery: Supports and simplifies rapid recovery for physical server environments from local image-based storage, using a combination of advanced algorithms, native data formats and reverse incremental backup techniques.

Object-Level Restore: Allows channel partners to retrieve specific files, folders, and databases from physical and virtual local image-based backups with greater ease, accuracy and efficiency.

VMware 6.0 Ready: Ensures channel partners will be able to provide native backup for the upcoming release of the industry’s leading hypervisor platform.

Built exclusively for use by channel partners, the Intronis ECHOplatform sells for a fixed monthly cost, making it easier for channel partners to resell the managed service at a predictable and profitable price. With its new features and functionalities, the platform supports the broadest range of backup and disaster recovery use cases for small to mid-size businesses (SMBs). It also offers channel partners the utmost speed, flexibility and precision recovery options, including being able to recover an entire virtual machine or server for example, in minutes, or simply restoring the data by copying the files through the portal of any hyper-V or image backup, without mounting the image.
