Middleboro, Mass., " April 6, 2010 " Focused on helping managed service providers (MSPs) meet their customers' demand for online backup and recovery services, Nine Technology is today announcing its official company launch. By leveraging the company's vast service provider experience, Nine Technology designed and architected its "Powered by Nine" online backup and recovery solutions to address the many challenges MSPs are having today when attempting to roll out their services built on consumer-grade backup technology.

"Prior to forming Nine Technology, many of our team members here ran a successful online backup service provider business. That's not to say that we didn't have our challenges with the backup vendor we chose, even after our doing our due diligence on dozens of vendors," said Tom Gelson, founder and CEO, Nine Technology. "From what we learned, we took the initiative to design our own online backup solution and go to market with it to address these challenges for other MSPs wanting to offer cost-effective and reliable online services to their customers."

Nine Technology's "Powered by Nine" solutions encompass the simple and easy functionality of consumer-class online backup solutions with a robust, reliable and highly scalable enterprise-class storage backend at a very attractive price point. Nine Technology offers solutions to back up and rapidly recover critical data for laptops, desktops and servers.

"There is an opportunity for new entrants into the online backup and recovery market--especially those that can differentiate themselves," said Lauren Whitehouse, senior analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. "While price is often a major factor in technology selection for MSP-driven online backup solutions, ultimately, ease of use, high reliability and seamless scalability are equally important ingredients for successful service offerings."

Nine Technology meets all major MSP requirements and fulfills the online backup and recovery promises that other technologies have not been able to achieve. The "Powered by Nine" features include: A comprehensive turnkey data protection service to individual users and organizations of all sizes Block level global data deduplication and compression reduce the footprint of data to optimize storage capacity and network bandwidth Seamless scalability to support the protection of unlimited amounts of data Simple administration and management console specifically designed for the MSP Scalable, reliable, fast, and secure access by customers at all times A built-in mechanism for data protection through replication Low total cost of ownership without compromising on the other requirements Fully rebrandable for MSPs and their VARs/IT Consultants at no additional cost

By the beginning of May, the company will release its "Powered by Nine" Pro online backup and recovery solution for servers.
