New AI-powered program from Alcion helps MSPs with Microsoft 365 backup modernization

Data management startup Alcion Inc. today launched Alcion for Partners, a new artificial intelligence-powered partner program for managed service providers that allows them to modernize their Microsoft 365 backup offerings.

The new program has been designed to accelerate and modernize MSPs’ Microsoft 365 backup business while reducing management and procurement toil. The program does so by providing a security-oriented backup offering with simplified licensing, consolidated billing and a new partner portal that allows MSPs and partners to monitor and manage multiple accounts from a single dashboard.

Core to the new offering is AI-driven security and backup technologies that enable MSPs to deliver a highly differentiated and cutting-edge product to their clients through a fully integrated partner portal. The program offers simplified monthly consolidated billing, offering usage-based billing with pay-as-you-go licensing and instant license procurement, simplifying the financial aspects and lowering the management overhead for MSPs.

The Alcion Partner Portal also allows for multitenant management, enabling MSPs to monitor and manage all their clients from a single, intuitive interface without juggling multiple sets of credentials. Dedicated partner support offered by Alcion includes pre- and post-sales support, ensuring MSP partners can confidently deploy Alcion, knowing a responsive and partner-focused support team is ready to jump in if required.

“By offering a comprehensive solution that not only secures client data against emerging threats but also simplifies administrative tasks, we are freeing up MSPs to focus on expanding their client base and services,” said co-founder and Chief Executive Niraj Tolia.

The new MSP offering comes as Alcion is experiencing strong growth, driven by more companies migrating from on-premises to Microsoft 365 in the cloud. The company has seen 10 times growth in its number of customers since September, with new customers across 15 countries.

Alcion is a venture capital-backed startup, having raised rounds of $21 million in September and $8 million in May last year when it launched. Investors include Veeam Software Inc., Lip-Bu Tan, an Intel Corp. board member and chairman of venture capital firm Walden International, as well as Postman Technologies Inc. founder and CEO Abhinav Asthana, DataRobot CEO Debanjan Saha and Amarjit Gill, an investor at Nepenthe Capital LLC.
