(Memphis, TN June 8, 2010) Remote Backup Systems, the founders of the online backup industry and developers of the RBackup and Mercury OEM Online Backup platforms today publically announced a significant price reduction on its very popular Virtual Hosting service.

This Software as a Service (SaaS) allows companies to start their own branded Online Backup business in the Cloud using RBS’ software and data center.

In recent years, small technology based businesses have begun to consider outsourced data storage and data recovery options more often as it proves to be more cost effective and stable than traditional in-house solutions. RBS Virtual Hosting is an attractive alternative to those who wish to capitalize on the growing trend of Cloud Storage, without having to purchase hardware and software to operate an Online Backup service.

In most cases, RBS can have Virtual Service Providers in business in less than a day.

Virtual Service Providers rebrand and distribute RBS’ industry leading Remote Backup Client software to their customers, who back up to RBS’ Private Cloud. VSPs maintain their own customer relationships, determine their own end-user pricing. This service is available at the company’s website The one-time setup cost includes graphics customization.

“Secure Remote Backup will never be free, but technology has made it very affordable, even to small businesses who might not even realize the value of their stored data. This means more and more potential customers come into play every day,” said Rob Cosgrove, CEO of Remote Backup Systems. “We have an opportunity to get Service Providers into the industry quickly, offering them a valuable product to sell. This business model, with its abstracted infrastructure, is a great way for some Service Providers to stay the most competitive.”

Virtual Service Providers manage their accounts through a web-based portal that gives them the ability to customize their client software, build installers on the fly, run reports, do recurring billing, and sell Online Backup services from their web sites by linking the Portal with their credit card processor.
