Probax Empowers Its Partners To Move Away From Legacy Tape With Honeycomb Virtual Tape Library

Probax announced the launch of their Virtual Tape Library solution - Honeycomb.  As more businesses are turning to cloud-based solutions, Honeycomb delivers resilient, air-gapped and highly available storage for Veeam, built for 25+ years retention - at a remarkable price point.

“Veeam has a very large customer footprint in ANZ, ranging from SMB businesses to large Enterprises across a wide range of verticals. All customers are in the process of exploring cloud-based BaaS solutions in order to ensure there is at least one air gapped copy which is offsite,” said Asanga Wanigatunga, Senior Director, Cloud & Service Providers, APJ at Veeam.

“Probax’s offering and go-to market model now enables the rich partner ecosystem at Veeam, whom service these markets, to leverage this white label service, delivering a more complete Hyper-Availability solution that will safeguard their business for today’s digital world.”

Probax CEO Sam Meegahage explains: “As more businesses start to recognise the risks and inefficiencies of managing physical tape hardware and media, they are turning to low-cost, cloud-based solutions. However, the current solutions available to the market have very complex pricing models which makes understanding the true cost quite difficult for MSPs and their clients. We were adamant that we wanted to offer our clients a simple and predictable pricing model – a flat rate per GB with no hidden data transfer or retrieval fees. I’m excited about the new opportunities that Honeycomb VTL offers our clients.”

The Honeycomb Virtual Tape Library provides an integration with Veeam Backup and Replication for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and System Integrators looking to manage secure long-term storage of their backups.
