(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Hexagrid, a leading developer of cloud enablement solutions, announces its most recent partnership with Link47, a European SMB IT distributor, and Compare the Cloud, a comprehensive cloud comparison consultancy. This partnership trio promises to facilitate the channel delivery of low cost, high quality cloud computing solutions to the mainstream SMB market throughout the UK.
“This partnership unites three companies with similar philosophies about service delivery at the core of cloud computing value within the SMB market,” says Suresh Mandava, CEO of Hexagrid Computing. “Together we will bring the power of Infrastructure as a Service to the masses by combining Hexagrid’s award winning VxDatacenter platform, Link47’s expertise as a leading distribution partner for SMB IT solutions, and Compare the Cloud’s solid reputation for matching business needs with the appropriate cloud capabilities.”
“Many of the Link47 SMB partners are either evaluating cloud offerings or looking at new avenues to increase revenues,” says Ian Siebert, Director of Link47. “Hexagrid offers both new technology and new revenue opportunities for partners to embrace and equally provides Compare the Cloud’s channel partners with their own Infrastructure as a Service offering for the SMB Market.”
Compare the Cloud identified Hexagrid as a cloud enabler capable of responding to the need for SMB channel providers in the UK to offer cloud computing solutions that compete with the large, international Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers. Working with Compare the Cloud, Link47 sought a cloud product offering that would satisfy clients’ needs and work as a catalyst for expanded product and service offerings. Hexagrid’s VxDatacenter is a comprehensive cloud platform that enables IaaS, Platform as a Service (PaaS), or Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions to be customized at both the service provider and end-user level.
“Hexagrid’s product has no competition within the SMB marketplace and enables my channel partners to rapidly deploy a service to rival major IaaS players such as Amazon and Terramark,” says Daniel Thomas, Director of Compare the Cloud. “Hexagrid provides a unique proposition for low-cost, high quality Datacentre as a Service (DaaS) solutions while Link47 brings the SMB-focused channel which perfectly fits the Hexagrid product.”
Link47 will leverage its existing product channels and marketing scope within the UK SMB market to overlay Hexagrid’s VxDatacenter platform. For example, “a CRM provider could use VxDatacenter to deliver a hosted CRM service or provide back-up or recovery services,” according to Siebert. Compare the Cloud and Link47 will continue to grow their businesses with products and services that complement Hexagrid’s VxDatacenter cloud platform.
