(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – RapidScale has announced today the launch of its customer-facing CloudUniversity platform. As a source of information for customers, CloudUniversity (https://rapidscale.net/) will provide base-level knowledge about the cloud and will expand into deep-dives about products such as Desktop as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service, and Disaster Recovery as a Service.
The core focus of CloudUniversity is to provide RapidScale’s partners with an educational platform for their customers and prospects. Furthermore, RapidScale will provide marketing and campaign materials for sales partners to utilize to connect with their customers and prospects. Sales partners can then engage in lead-generation to find new opportunities within their client base and prospects, as decision makers want to be educated on what the cloud is and the implications to their business.
RapidScale’s customer-facing CloudUniversity platform currently features 12 different courses that include topics such as Desktop as a Service, What is the Cloud, CapEx vs. OpEx, Hosted Exchange and Private Exchange, and more. CloudUniversity can be utilized by someone with any level of cloud knowledge, from using it as a refresher to advanced cloud knowledge. The goal is to inform and educate those interested in advancing their knowledge about the cloud. Furthermore, it is also a tremendous resource for non-IT staff who may be brand new to the cloud-computing model.
CloudUniversity (https://rapidscale.net/) is the first customer education platform of its kind that focuses on vendor agnostic content, which allows customers to continue to work with and depend on their sales partner to engineer their cloud roadmap or hybrid cloud solution. RapidScale is a channel-centric cloud services company and focuses on providing resources to its partners in order to generate cloud business.
