The SOS Partner Beta Group Launches First Beta of Collaboration Software

September 11, 2012

Let the crowdsourcing begin!

Our online backup reseller partners are taking place in our first ever crowdsourced beta test. This particular product is something revolutionary for our partners: it is a collaboration and groupware solution created for use by MSPs and IT consultants. In our forums, SOS and our partners are now making this web-based file sharing and project management solution the best it can possibly be!

The members of the SOS Partner Beta Group taking part in this test are equipped with a fully functioning free account.

  • Participants will test drive the software
  • Report bugs
  • Offer feature enhancement suggestions

Who can take part in this beta?

Any current SOS wholesale partner can take part in this first-of-its-kind beta!

Are you curious about the product, but not an SOS partner? 

That’s okay. You’ll be updated when we do release the product. There will certainly be ways to try it for free!


Crowdsourcing online backup software features and solutions : SOS Partner Beta Group

September 10, 2012

Our engineering road map has always been a busy one. But what if it wasn’t the right one? What if it could have been made better, if we based it solely on what our customers and online backup reseller partners had to say? We’ve taken the “what if” out of the sentence and made this a reality by creating the SOS Partner Beta Group.

What is the SOS Partner Beta Group?

The SOS Partner Beta Group is a forum for and by our wholesale partners. Our partners, CEO, Product Manager, and Director of Marketing are constantly discussing and voting on features and products that our online backup solution should encompass. This is crowdsourcing at its best!

How does crowdsourcing work in the SOS Partner Beta Group? 

The SOS Partner Beta Group is a permission based group – so you do have to be a partner to join. Right now, there are over 40 features being voted on. Members of the SOS Partner Beta Group can even see which ones are planned and currently in development. New feature suggestions will be voted on and placed in our engineering development cycle to be worked on over the next 2 – 6 weeks. This process will keep going in order to create the best online backup software in the business.

SOS ServerSave: Good Words from the MSP Community : Online Backup Partner Review

November 4, 2011

On Tuesday, SOS launched our newest business product suite – SOS ServerSave. We’re very excited about this launch and our partners are as well! Here is the initial response from our partner, Matt Bernard, CIO of One Click Technology Group, LLC.

“…yesterday’s webinar with Ken blew all preconceived notions regarding backup out of the water [and blew my mind].  ServerSave and the latest offerings from SOS, in my opinion, are set to not only change the backup game, the product is poised to kill off many of the ideals and technologies that have been plaguing backup since 1980.  Frankly, this is how this market should work and, SHOULD HAVE worked since the turn of the new millennium.”

The webinar Matt is referring to is located here, available for you to review at your leisure.

Matt goes on to say:

“We can now go to [and back to] our ‘mom-and-pops’ and bring them a FULL, no-hassle, highly available/redundant solution that covers their data and systems, soup-to-nuts.  At a great price.  And, guess what?  We can, immediately, with the same solution…engage mid-size and large companies, at a lower cost as I believe the pure power of ServerSave decreases our cost of acquisition; who wouldn’t fall in love with this solution at the pitch?  Secondly, we know without a doubt, that we have a solid partner to lean on when things get rough.  Lastly, highly competitive price point.  All of this means a product that is highly sale-able for us, all…day…long.”
