  • Proactive Networks Legacy BDR Situation 45 4 Legacy BDRs 5 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Rights Reserved. BDR Vendors
  • Proactive Networks Legacy BDR Problem • BDRs pale in comparison to new servers • BDRs running out of storage – Backing up more data than ever before – Do we have to change our retention policy? Do we have to get rid of historical data? We don’t want to! • Dissimilar hardware from multiple vendors – Lack of ease to monitor and collect data – Some vendors have uncertain future 6 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Right Reserved.
  • Proactive Networks Approach to Legacy BDRs • Make BDR a requirement – Refresh every 3 years • Own the equipment – Client does not know best – Charge for BDR as a monthly service • Markup on storage significantly – But be flexible and willing to renegotiate • Standardized on eFolder 7 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
  • Proactive Networks Results • BDR upgrade success – 35 of 40 bundled managed services clients have BDRs – 10 other clients have BDRs as standalone managed service – 60% of BDRs upgraded – Standardized on eFolder BDR for ShadowProtect • BDR profitability – 80-90% margins on off-site storage • Selling storage in blocks of 50 gigabytes – Breakeven between 6-10 months 8 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
  • Reason 1: Improve Recovery Time and Guarantees • Businesses need to guard against any and every kind of downtime • Recovery must be fast and complete – Minutes not hours! • Meeting RTO, making SLA • Refresh is opportunity to remind client why they need BDR 9 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
  • Reason 2: Avoid Risking Obsolescence • An outdated, at-risk BDR is nonsensical – Avoid the “Now what?” situation • Risky BDR deployments – Zenith 32-bit appliances – Windows Server 2003 • Newer BDRs are priced competitively 10 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Right Reserved.
  • Reason 3: Access New Software and Features 11 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Right Reserved.
