BackupAgent announced on Thursday that it has launched BackupAgent Cloud, a new cloud backup service, following 6 months of beta testing.

The new service from the Netherlands-based provider is hosted in BackupAgent’s data centers in the US, Europe, and Asia, and is based on its cloud backup platform.

Managed service providers can add BackupAgent Cloud as a value-add service to their hosting portfolio. The service is easily deployable, according to BackupAgent, and can be white-labeled.

Through BackupAgent Cloud, customers will have access to automated backup, with features including backup of Microsoft Outlook and Windows System State, as well as advanced backup of Microsoft Hyper-V Server, Exchange Server, SQL Server and MySQL databases.

BackupAgent offers integrations with remote management tools and control panels including Parallels Automation and WHMCS, as well as an open API in order to manage users and subscriptions, and access detailed reports.

“We are incredibly excited with the launch of BackupAgent Cloud,” Roland Sars, founder and CCO of BackupAgent said. “We have had a tremendous amount of requests for a BackupAgent Cloud solution and we the response on our new solution is really positive. Our offering is very competitive to quickly gain market share and we see it is paying off. More than 100 resellers already signed up; from large Telcos to regional MSPs.”

BackupAgent is inviting interested service providers to sign up for a free trial of BackupAgent Cloud to test the service.

Earlier this year, at, BackupAgent announced a $2 million funding round led by Runa Capital.

Cloud backup made headlines earlier this week with the impending closure of Symantec’s PC and server backup solution, Backup Exec.Cloud. With the announcement, several cloud backup providers offered special trials and discounts to Symantec customers.

  1. After the news with Symantec other companies will do their best to attract more customers who are interested in cloud backups. I think when you choose the company to work with, consider a lot. I chose Acronis only some time of thinking and reading the company history and their results in backup. When I was fully satisfied with what I had read, I bought their product.
