While half of MSPs are planning to offer an offsite backup and recovery solution, the majority have not taken steps to support their plans, according to a recent informal survey conducted by Modular Data Protection Services (DPS) Inc, a company that works with cloud data protection. Modular DPS surveyed resellers of Intel AppUp Small Business Service from  Intel Corp.

After surveying a range of MSPs, Modular DPS  found that remote monitoring and management services was the first most popular focus area for MSPs (55.6 percent). Disaster recovery and business continuity planning came in second with 44.4 percent, while offsite data backup and recovery services placed in third with 42.1 percent.

The solution also includes access to the Intel AppUp Small Business Service, which runs on the Intel Hybrid Cloud Platform.
