MSP360 and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage: a Guide to Unified Billing

In this guide, we’ll overview unified billing in MSP360 Managed Backup, a feature that represents the “one-stop shop” principle.
With the MSP360 Managed Backup, you can use any cloud storage vendor that fits your needs. That also means that you pay for the backup solution in two separate places – in the Managed Backup solution itself and in the interface of your cloud storage provider.

To add an additional layer of flexibility, together with Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage we have developed an MSP360 Storage solution. Using this, you can manage your backups and storage in one place; all payments are processed inside MSP360 Managed Backup, and this is what we call unified billing.

MSP360 Storage Powered by Wasabi: How It Works

We offer a free trial period of 30 days for you to try out the storage and decide whether it fits your needs or not. During this period, you can use 2 TB of storage. When 2 TB or 30 days expire, whichever comes first, the trial period ends. Note that you can use a trial period only once.

After the trial expires, there are three scenarios.

  New call-to-action
  1. You subscribe to MSP360 Storage. In this case, you just continue to use the storage. The monthly minimum payment is equivalent to the price of 1 TB / month – $5.99. Once you exceed this, you pay only for the storage you use (in GB). You’ll get an invoice every month. Bear in mind that MSP360 Storage has a minimum retention period of 30 days. If stored objects are deleted from MSP360 Storage in less than 30 days, you will be charged an early deletion fee.
  2. You don’t subscribe to MSP360 Storage. In this case, the storage will switch to read-only mode, which means that you will be able to restore your data, but with no opportunity to back up anything new. After 79 days from the beginning of the trial period, access to data will be denied and you will receive a notification of this. After an additional week, all information will be deleted from the storage.
  3. You delete your account. In this case, the processing will take up to 7 days, for security reasons.
