When CEO Martin Phillip Maleschyn co-founded CURAit in 2009, he and his partners recognized a transition in the IT
service market toward offering cloud services. Because cloud was a new technology trend at the time, foundational
designs and operational processes and procedures could not be found to formulate onsite operations, let alone a managed
service offering. As IT consultants, the CURAit founders recognized that many managed service providers (MSP) within
the market struggled to offer cloud-managed services as a concept. With their vast knowledge of current and emerging
technologies, they were able to design and deliver industry-leading on-prem and cloud managed services. With steady
growth since its conception, CURAit currently offers its customers managed hybrid IT services, including backup,
disaster recovery (DR), migration, endpoint protection, Office 365 support, and compliance.
Supporting these services, CURAit also offers multiple price points to satisfy a broader range of clients’ needs and
maturity. Maleschyn notes that this model allows customers to “start small, think big,” as customers can easily add any
service and/or upgrade to a greater tier as their business grows.
Maximizing Potential with Data
CURAit identified a shift in the market in which offering backup for customers was not enough. Instead, the
organization substantiated a need to provide customers with options that would enable their data for greater use.
Commvault’s eDiscovery and search features are “key differentiators,” according to Maleschyn, especially in terms of
compliance. “We actually have some customers that have been able to find data they are looking for and report it back
to the end-user from a compliance perspective.”
CURAit also relies on Commvault software to deliver multi-tenant self-service functionality to customers. “Many of the
products that we turned down didn’t even have a self-service portal,” according to Maleschyn. Thanks to this
capability, CURAit can provide its customers with instant access to their data in an easy-to-use interface. This
capability is paramount for both CURAit and its customers, as it introduced efficiencies by eliminating delays
encountered when processing requests without requiring any heavy investments in custom development.
One Capable and Reliable Platform
Previously, CURAit relied on several disparate vendors to deliver its multiple service offerings to customers. Not only
was this difficult to manage, but it was also costly. As a result, CURAit re-examined the technology ecosystem for
other venders that could support a MSP’s technical delivery model. It envisioned that enabling customers to do more
with their data would serve as an additional value proposition, and therefore serve the organization from a business
CURAit turned to Commvault software due to its unique ability to deliver multiple services from a single platform. Not
only did Commvault deliver the service offerings that gave them an edge in the market—it also provided technical
benefits and overall operational efficiency.
Prior to Commvault, CURAit relied on five vendors to deliver services such as backup, cloud, DR, migration, and Office 365 protection. In changing vendors, the organization was able to reduce the amount of products used, therefore reducing infrastructure, and ultimately reducing cost.
In terms of vendor management efficiency, Maleshcyn describes the benefit of Commvault’s single platform as reduction in terms of “licensing, power, cooling, and hardware.”
