Scully confirmed his move to Redstor in an email to ChannelE2E, stating:

“To put it bluntly, I am joining Redstor because it is the next evolution in Disaster Recovery. In today’s environment, MSPs can’t rely on a supply chain to deliver hardware when their clients’ need it in real time, the Redstor solution bypasses the supply chain and gets your clients IT infrastructure up and running in minutes…”

“I have spent the greater part of the past seven years meeting with MSPs and I feel I have a pulse in what they are looking for in a solution provider: It is Technology, ability to make a healthy MRR and a strong Partner Program that offers support and tools that help MSPs sell strategically, Redstor ticks all those boxes."

To drive Redstor's partner program forward, Scully will target MSPs that "truly wish to offer their clients/customers the strongest and most complete data protection solution. Redstor offers the MSP community a smarter, safer and simplest Data Protection solution in the Channel community. My goal is to get the solution into as many hands as possible, sit back and let the solution sell itself."
