Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – February 26, 2008 – Developer of near-continuous data protection products for Linux and Windows, R1Soft, has premiered its Hosting Partner Program.
The new R1HPP will provide volume discounts, automatic 50% off MySQL add-ons, professional public relations services and a variety of brandable marketing incentives.
David Wartell, Vice President of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies noted, ”The partner program is like tech support for your hosting companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sales and marketing team. We are going to work closely with our hosting partners every step of the way and show them how to make lots of cash with R1Soft. I am going to pay a professional public relations firm out of pocket to launch a successful press release for every hosting partner who joins us, and our marketing team has even developed entire sets of Web site content our customers can use to sell data protection services. The only things missing are our partners’ logo and prices.”
The program, which has been in development for the past 6 months, is intended to give hosting service providers an edge in marketing and offering R1Soft’s Continuous Data Protection to their own customers. Service providers ranging from managed hosting providers to small resellers of virtual hosting are encouraged to participate.
R1HPP will offer marketing tools, including product datasheets, press release assistance, promotional graphics and images, web site verbiage, a partner directory, case studies, and more. Providers joining the hosting partner program before March 31, 2008 can enter a drawing to win a free full page ad in a major hosting publication.
Founded in 2003, R1Soft is a provider of disk-based backup solutions. The company’s customer list includes some of the world’s largest hosting providers. R1soft products provide Continuous Data Protection (CDP) for over 80,000 mission-critical Linux and Windows servers worldwide. In November, 2007 R1Soft was acquired by BBS Technologies, Inc.
