NetJapan has announced it'll be giving away free copies of its disaster recovery software to resellers, MSPs and service providers, worth £3m.

The company is giving the software away for free because it wants to demonstrate the power of the software to the channel. They will also be able to sell it onto clients if they wish, making a profit of £605 per licence.

Yamazki Junji, COO of NetJapan says: “We are aware that IT resellers, VARs, Service Providers can dedicated very little time to testing new business continuity solutions, but in today’s competitive markets they also have to strive to increase their profits.

"Our high-tech solutions can help IT channel partners save thousands of pounds in backup storage space per year thanks to the unequalled Inline Data Deduplication feature. In addition, resellers can reduce training and admin costs by sourcing all their disaster recovery solutions from a single supplier that covers all their needs.”

NetJapan's disaster recovery software is available for both Windows and Linux servers (both physical and virtual) as well as Hyper-V and VMware.

IT resellers, MSPs, VARs and IT Service Providers can apply for a free licence to NetJapan's software by visiting the company's website.

The company will also be distributing the softare at a number of events around the UK and Ireland over the autumn.

In June, NetJapan announced its plans to launch in Europe and presumably, this giveaway wil help the company become more well-known in the UK industry.
