Biggest Cloud Backup Software Companies: List of MSP Options and Alternatives

Dozens of cloud-based backup and disaster recovery (BDR) software companies now compete in the data protection market. But which cloud backup firms specifically focus on MSPs (managed IT service providers)? The list below, updated monthly, provides some answers.

We don't test these software products, so can't recommend a best cloud backup service for MSPs. However, we closely monitor each company's MSP partner program, employee headcount figures, and other variables that provide clues about a businesses health. With that context in mind, here's our list of cloud backup options and alternatives for MSPs. A few things to keep in mind:

  1. Companies are sorted by headcount (largest to smallest)
  2. Company headcount figures are culled from LinkedIn. Admittedly, those figures may not be exact, but they at least provide a common baseline from which to measure and compare the size of each company.
  3. The list only includes cloud backup companies that specifically engage MSPs to drive the bulk of their revenues.
