RBS Virtual Hosting - Customization and Branding
Let us worry about the servers while you concentrate on making sales!
RBS Virtual Hosting is an alternative to purchasing your own hardware and software to operate an Online Backup service. You distribute a white-label version of our industry leading Remote Backup Client software to your customers, and they back up to RBS' data centers. You maintain your own customer relationships, determine your own end-user pricing, and distribute software with your own branding.
The software you distribute to your clients can be customized and branded to a very high level. You can change file selections, and almost completely change the way your software works. You can make it look and act like your own software.
You might want to offer several service plans at different prices, which have different amounts of storage space, or different default settings. The file inclusion/exclusion rules, schedules, disk space quotas, and dozens of other attributes can be set to create software for your different plans, as in the following examples. (Prices are only for demonstration purposes, and in no way reflect market prices. You can charge whatever you like.)
Personal Plan ($19.95/month) Twice-weekly backups of the Documents and Settings folders, including Microsoft Office documents, and excluding music and video files on a single computer. This plan comes with 2 GB of storage space. Files are kept for 30 days, then rotated off the Server, oldest files first. Customers have no control over file selections or scheduling.
Professional Plan ($39.99/month) Daily backups of all MS Office documents and common accounting programs on a single computer. Customers have full control over file selections, but not scheduling.

Change graphics (Advanced Customization)
There are two options for customization:
Standard customization - Do it yourself. This is included with Virtual Hosting Accounts. You can change most of the customization features yourself through the web-based Virtual Hosting Portal. At the present time, graphics must be customized by RBS with Advanced Customization.
Advanced Customization - An RBS technician will interview you, answer questions about any customizable feature, and customize your software for you. This includes advice about setting up service plans and charges (although we will not tell you what to charge), and also includes customizing your software with your own graphics and icons. You must supply your own graphics in the proper size and format.
