Zetta.net is now targeting the managed services providers (MSP) market with a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that it says delivers a complete cloud-based backup and disaster recovery (BDR) service.

The Sunnyvale, California-based tech company on Monday said DataProtect 4.5 enables users to make full server image backups -- from files to databases to server images -- without requiring an appliance or a local staging.

The new solution, now in general availability, includes cloud server image backup; appliance-free server image recovery; virtual and physical recovery options; native VHD bare metal recovery (BMR); SQL backup enhancement; and two-factor authentication.

Additionally, the new solution provides MSPs with Windows system image-based backup and ConnectWise integration.

"The new solution is the first SaaS-based service to deliver complete cloud backup and DR -- from files to databases to server images -- directly to the cloud, with integrated WAN acceleration for optimal transfer speeds," Zetta.net CMO Gary Sevounts told MSPmentor.

"Zetta is listening to the needs of channel partners and responding in a continuous effort to enhance the capabilities they can offer their customers, and improving partners productivity and profitability," Sevounts said.

He added: "Zetta will continue to listen their partners and fulfill their needs not only from a solution perspective, but also by making it easier to do business with Zetta across all critical functions; marketing, sales, support, and business operations."

Earlier this month Zetta.net said it has seen record customer and partner growth in the first half of 2014. According to the company, its new customers acquired increased by 279 percent, while its partner network grew by 357 percent over the same period in 2013.
