The Planet WebsiteWeb Hosting NewsHOUSTON – The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced that Q Point Technology ( has selected its new Storage Cloud solution. Based in Mountain View, Calif., Q Point Technology develops TrueSafe software infrastructure that enables service providers, such as IT managed services providers (MSPs), to offer their own online backup service. With an easy-to-use backup platform accessed through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) subscription model, any service provider can immediately offer a branded service to their customers to preserve and protect server, laptop and workstation data offsite.

“Our customers look to us for turnkey solutions, ranging from self-managed to our fully managed systems,” said Bill Robertson, Founder and CEO of Q Point Technology. “The Planet Storage Cloud is a pivotal capability as it offers unlimited pain-free scalability under a utility model, and you only pay for what you use. We conducted extensive testing on offerings from several providers, and The Planet offered the best solution. It met all of our demanding technical and performance criteria. Further, The Planet took the time to understand our customer requirements, which was key. With no quota or fees for upload transfers, our customers won’t face billing surprises. They’ll know exactly what they’re paying for every month.”

“In today’s difficult economic environment, customers must take every step possible to preserve their data and their core business,” said Steve Kahan, vice president of marketing and product management with The Planet. “Our Storage Cloud solution has been developed with SMBs in mind so they can economically store data and not worry about the pervasive billing surprises we’ve heard about so frequently with other products. With the industry’s only geographically dispersed locations, and the best price and performance, The Planet Storage Cloud offers the best value for customers.”

Q Point’s mission is to provide innovative, easy-to-use products that protect organizations from the ravages of digital data loss. The TrueSafe platform operates under a SaaS model, which alleviates the burden of system deployment, database management, upgrades and administration for customers. Combined with low up-front costs, TrueSafe offers a significant ROI advantage.

“With TrueSafe, our clients incur no capital costs, so they can get started with just one customer and scale the system as their customers adopt their service,” notes Robertson. “Now with The Planet Storage Cloud, the same thing is true for storage, which takes the overall value proposition to the next level.”

According to Robertson, numerous studies point to the fact that there are dire consequences for businesses that don’t adequately protect their data.

“Virtually every company faces the critical task of how to protect digital intellectual property, whether it’s server-based data and databases, e-mail or documents,” said Robertson. “For SMBs, this presents logistical hurdles since historically it’s been a manually intensive task, with offsite protection as an afterthought. With the preponderance of electronic data, offsite protection isn’t a nice-to-have but an absolute mandate.”
