StorMSP: Storage-as-a-Service Offering Now Available


Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are increasingly critical to customers by delivering services organizations need to scale by removing the burden of managing and maintaining the IT infrastructure. 

Over the last several years, StorONE has worked closely with MSPs who service businesses of all sizes to understand how their business works and makes money. We asked questions to learn more about their data management needs as a service and for day-to-day management. 

With this knowledge and some of our closest MSP partners, we developed StorMSP. 

StorMSP allows qualified MSPs to take advantage of a program designed to help them improve their bottom line through the most simple, profitable, and flexible storage services program.

StorMSP is a revolutionary new way for MSPs to provide their customers with a complete suite of automated storage management on one platform. This three-tiered program offers the lowest investment to get started and includes premium support at all levels. Financing will be available through Dell Financial Services. 

MSPs can leverage StorONE’s technology to create differentiated services across a wide range of client use cases, including backup as a service as a backup target, disaster recovery, archive, hybrid application use cases, Ransomware recovery, Network Attached Storage, and High-Performance Computing (HPC)/Artificial Intelligence (AI) use cases. Key StorONE technologies include a cacheless architecture, StorONE’s Virtual Storage Containers™, vRAID, Optimized Data Placement, and vSnap differentiated snapshots. 

Tiered Program for MSPs of All Sizes  

No matter the MSP’s size, they can offer a complete suite of automated storage management services on one platform that runs multiple use cases. StorMSP is not a one-size-fits-all program.

This three-tiered program focuses on profitability and gives flexibility for the MSP to pick a configuration that covers their needs, along with a ramp-up period. This is designed to keep costs efficient and enable MSPs to scale the margin on their data storage offering. Each tier includes premium support from StorONE’s team of experts.

StorMSP Silver is meant for MSPs launching an entry-level service for small enterprise customers. 

StorMSP Gold and StorMSP Platinum: is for more complex and larger footprint storage services. Each tier has capacity targets and solution packaging that is easy to understand that will allow MSPs to choose the best approach to deployment. Benefits include co-marketing, technical support, an online portal, training programs, and capacity pricing.

Predictable OPEX costs and Flexible Storage-as-a-Service Deployment Options

A cornerstone of the program will be MSPs’ ability to finance their hardware and software investments through StorONE and Dell Financial Services. MSPs can quickly deploy a pre-configured platform that includes StorONE and Dell PowerEdge Servers, and Dell PowerVault Storage with a managed approach to OPEX costs that will enable revenue growth over a multi-year period.* MSP customers can defer the start of their StorONE subscription payment based on the program tier they elect to participate in.

The StorONE MSP program opens new possibilities for service providers to enhance their service offerings and deliver top-notch storage solutions to their customers. By joining forces with StorONE, MSPs can unlock the true potential of their storage services, providing a seamless and scalable experience to their clients in today’s dynamic and data-driven world.
