Magnus Box started as an idea in January 2018. We started Magnus Box back then to benefit our Managed Service Provider company or MSP (Ctrl-Alt-Delete Computer Repair LLC).
We had just witnessed another business client lose all of their data. They thought their data was safe while being stored on a 6-year-old external hard drive. When they came into the office one day, all they could hear was clicking noises coming from their external hard drive.
We sent their hard drive out to a data recovery company. After a week or two, the quote to get their data back was over $2000. This small mom-and-pop business client could not afford to recover their data. Because they lost all of their data, they went out of business a few months later.
Magnus Box was created because of these kinds of situations. We tried other backup solutions, and they either limit how much data you can backup, or they are too complicated or too clunky to use. Magnus Box fills these gaps by being easy to use and allowing unlimited data.
Along the way of growing Magnus Box for use in our MSP, a few of our friends in the industry seen what we were doing and said, “You should offer your platform to other IT companies.” It was this single sentence that sparked a massive change for Magnus Box. Over Thanksgiving 2018, we ripped out all of the systems we had built for our MSP and rebuilt them from the ground up to serve the MSP community.
Magnus Box is available exclusively to technology service providers, computer repair providers, and MSPs worldwide. Magnus Box will never sell directly to the general public. Why do we do this? We do this because we were where you are, trying to provide services to our clients when our providers were directly competing with us. There was nothing more frustrating than losing a client to the company that we were purchasing our services from to resell to our clients.
Magnus Box was built by techs for techs.
Our team has extensive first-hand experience in the MSP industry. All of our staff and founders came directly from the tech industry; this allows us to build useful features for our partners.
Most backup companies have investors, venture capitalists, or a board to answer to. Magnus Box was bootstrapped and started from the ground up. The only people that we answer to are our amazing partners.
We don’t just sell you a service. We fully support you after signup.
Most companies will just sell you a product or service, and that is where the relationship ends. Our team becomes part of your team. We are available via phone, Facebook, and email to help you anytime you have a question or need assistance. This is one of the vast differences between Magnus Box and our competition.
The Magnus Box Partners are the guiding force in the development of the Magnus Box platform. Their suggestions and recommendations are vital to the mutual success of both parties.
We have had a simple but powerful mission from day one. Our mission is to protect your client’s data from disaster.
