Minneapolis, MN, United States, 2011/06/21 - Two Twin Cities-based firms have joined forces to create a service partnership for cloud computing services - KLH and Velocity Telephone - KLHMN.com.
Twin Cities-based KLH and Velocity Telephone have partnered to provide enterprise-class remote backup service to small- to medium-size businesses in the region. KLH, an IT solutions firm based in St. Michael, will provide the IT consulting, software and service for its industry-leading cloud-based backup software and service, with exclusive sales rights granted to Golden Valley-based Velocity Telephone. The partnership provides a one-stop shop for custom disaster recovery solutions for both data and voice.
“In today’s business environment, data backup is critical to meet both compliance issues, as well as day-to-day operations,” said Kevin Hankel, president, KLH. “The peace-of-mind protection offsite back up provides can be secured for as little as $3 a day and can mean the difference between a data disaster and business as usual.” KLH owns all licenses to the software solution, so is able to fully provide a turn-key backup option for clients.
“Velocity Telephone has a strong history with its custom phone and data solutions. It was important for KLH to partner with a phone company that can think outside the proverbial box to provide the best solution for our customers,” said Hankel. “In turn, Velocity Telephone benefits by having a best-of-class cloud backup solution to offer their clients, who might also see an advantage from our custom disaster recovery solutions.”
“Our customers benefit by being able to directly connect to a solution like this, which minimizes necessary bandwidth, reduces costs and provides a secure, reliable connection to their data, said Jim Hickle, president, Velocity Telephone. “We have had a long working relationship with KLH and the advantage of their being a local provider – with local service and support – was a major factor in our decision to partner with them.”
Customers utilizing the automatically scheduled backup service are protected with a 30-day money back free trial and money-back guarantee of the services and solutions provided. Through the Velocity Cloud backup, customers can be assured of a best of its kind data center, as well as top-notch software.
