May 12, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Managed web hosting solutions company Verio, today announced that its managed solutions have been named VARBusiness' Midmarket Products of the Year. Verio's Remote Backup service and its Virtual Private Server (VPS) solution were both recognized by CMP Media's VARBusiness magazine in their first ever midmarket product selection.
Verio's Remote Backup services and VPS solution were recently profiled in the special May 2 VARBusiness "State of the Midmarket" issue. "Our readers tell us that the middle market is one of the fastest-growing IT categories today," says VARBusiness Publisher Robert C. DeMarzo. "We feel that Verio's Remote Backup managed storage service, as well as the company's VPS with Accrisoft* Freedom solution for resellers, meet that segment's needs very well."
"Verio has made the midmarket a priority in its business, which is why this recognition by VARBusiness is particularly gratifying," said David Chao, vice president of product management for Verio. "These awards reinforce our commitment to the midmarket and validate our investments to innovate in this area. Verio will continue to forge ahead with products and services that make it easier for midmarket companies and the resellers that support them to grow their businesses."
Verio's automated Remote Backup, an IP-based managed storage solution, provides network-based remote data protection and recovery for critical data on servers and PCs located at the customer premise in the event of failure. A backup of a company's critical data is created and automatically stored in a Verio Premier Data Center, thus improving data availability while reducing data recovery costs. The fully-automated service is initiated with a fast and easy client/agent setup, and includes all additional required hardware and software, as well as 24x7 management and staffing.
VARBusiness, the biweekly magazine that provides strategic insight to technology integrators, solicited input from information-technology (IT) vendors and solution providers to determine which products and services were best for mid-market customers - companies with between 100 and 999 employees. Entries were considered and reviewed by VARBusiness editors who selected only the top 100 of the more than 400 nominated products.
