NAKIVO Introduces Cloud Provider Program with Per-VM Licensing for Managed Services, Cloud, and Hosting Providers


Campbell, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2013

Today NAKIVO Inc., #1 virtualization data protection software provider, introduces the Cloud Provider Program that enables qualified Cloud Provider Partners to license NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a per-VM, monthly rental basis. More details and Cloud Provider Program registration is available at http://www.nakivo.com/cloud_provider_program.htm .

Click to tweet: NAKIVO introduced Cloud Provider program with per-VM licensing for VM backup and replication – http://clicktotweet.com/VMm1X

Traditional per-socket licensing is less optimal for businesses who want to offer data protection services to their clients. This licensing model has high upfront costs, adds regular maintenance costs, and is not granular enough for Managed Services, Cloud, and Hosting Providers who support their customers on a per-VM basis.

The new Cloud Provider Program enables Managed Services, Cloud, and Hosting Providers to extend their services to BaaS, RaaS, DRaaS, and BCaaS, attract new clients, improve client retention, drive new revenues, and become more competitive with most advanced technology and the lowest TCO solution.

The upcoming Enterprise Cloud Provider Edition will also provide a multi-tenancy feature, enabling cloud providers to manage all tenants from a single cloud provider user interface, while keeping tenant data separate and providing an easy to use self-service tenant interface as well. Learn more about upcoming features at http://www.nakivo.com/v4_overview.htm .

NAKIVO Backup & Replication Pro is now available as a monthly rental in packs of 10 VMs to qualified Cloud Provider Partners, enabling them to protect the virtualized infrastructure of their customers onsite or offsite. With this simple month to month rental model, partners can more affordably create their data protection cloud services.

QUOTES

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication I can manage data protection for our geographically distributed sites from a single Web interface without having the data to travel through the central server. I have not come across such a good centrally managed backup solution that is so easy to configure before,” said Graham Morse, Systems Administrator at Somerset Health Informatics Service.

“Because NAKIVO Backup & Replication can protect VMs at the customer site(s), offsite within our datacenter, and to public clouds, we are able to tailor protection services for onsite rapid VM recovery from local backup in case of a server failure, offsite within our datacenter in case of a customer onsite power outage, or with a public cloud in case of regional disaster, said Matjaz Antloga, IT Director at balkancloud.com. With NAKIVOs high reliability, performance, and affordability we have been able to expand our data protection services and produce new revenue while also improving customer satisfaction levels.

eFolder Acquires Cloudfinder, Empowers Managed Backup and Search for Office 365, Google Apps and Salesforce for MSPs


Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 09, 2014

eFolder, a leading supplier of business continuity and cloud file sync services for the IT channel, today announced the acquisition of Cloudfinder, an international leader in cloud-to-cloud backup services. Cloudfinder products provide backup, instant full-text search, restoration and reporting for business-to-business (B2B) cloud services, including Office 365, Google Apps and Salesforce. eFolders acquisition of Cloudfinder creates a new profit opportunity for IT channel partners that choose to backup and support their clients cloud data and applications.

Despite the robust infrastructure in use by leading B2B cloud application providers, businesses today risk data loss, data fragmentation and compliance violations as more workloads move from on-premises servers to the cloud. At the same time, IT channel partners are seeking to replace traditional revenue streams from on-premises managed services as their clients rapidly adopt cloud applications. eFolders acquisition of Cloudfinder bridges these gaps, offering business users an extra level of resiliency and assurance for all their cloud data, while restoring the profit opportunity for partners with managed cloud applications.

Cloudfinder is the only company that provides a unified backup and instant full-text search of cloud data across differing cloud services. From one user interface, businesses can backup, search, restore and get a data overview across multiple cloud services. Cloudfinder has the most comprehensive cloud application coverage in the market, with support for Office 365, Google Apps, and Salesforce, and with plans to support additional cloud applications. These technological innovations are particularly relevant as businesses report losing data in the cloud. A January 2013 report by the Aberdeen Group found that 32 percent of companies that are using cloud services have reported losing data.

The cloud computing revolution is allowing businesses of all sizes to run entirely in the cloud, says Kevin Hoffman, CEO of eFolder. Unfortunately, businesses still face the risk of data loss or downtime in the cloud, since user error, accidental deletion or malicious employees pose risks to business data no matter where it resides. By adding a layer of instant search and business continuity to these mass market B2B cloud applications through Cloudfinders technology, eFolder is empowering partners to deliver lucrative managed backup and support for clients that have migrated to the cloud.

Cisco Partner and Managed IT Service Provider Brian Gifford & Associates Replaces Autotask With PROMYS PSA Business Automation Software to Support Aggressive Growth Plans


Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) June 05, 2014

Promys, a leader in enterprise professional services automation software for the IT Solutions provider industry, announced that it has been awarded a contract by Brian Gifford & Associates, a quickly growing Reno Nevada based IT Solution provider specializing in Managed IT Services, Professional Services, Hardware & Software Sales and Cloud Computing. Promys PSA software was selected in order to help Brian Gifford & Associates continue to scale by providing better visibility, accountability and audit trails for the business.

Autotask was a very good solution for us over the last four years, but as we’ve grown and the business has become more complex we’ve been facing more and more sales cycle management and procurement challenges. Our technical team splits time between our various lines of business, which has made accurate financial performance reporting difficult, which is compromising my ability to make well informed growth decisions,” said Brian Gifford, CEO of Gifford Associates.

“I saw several very strong reviews of PROMYS from larger IT partners, and it’s clear that PROMYS was designed as ‘Enterprise Business software’ for more complex Professional Services organizations. In addition to the traditional PSA functionality, PROMYS is very strong in areas such as forecasting/planning, real-time project costing, equipment handling, and reporting/analytics, which is critical for our continued growth,” continued Brian.

We’ve been very successful because of our dedicated group of incredibly talented employees. What sets our employees apart from the competition is their ability to understand complex technology and communicate in a simple straight forward manner. Which is why we’re consistently recognized by clients for our ability to exceed expectations. The new HTML5 device independent version of the PROMYS business software is going to allow our employees to respond even more quickly and accurately during customer interactions, whether they’re in the office or in the field, which is exactly the kind of competitive advantage we want to leverage, added Brian.

John Breakey, founder and former CEO of Unis Lumin, a Cisco Gold Partner and current CEO of Promys agrees, The business software that got you to 10 employees, is not necessarily the solution that’s going to get you to 25, 50 or 100 employees. At some point you need to review your operational infrastructure to make sure it can take you to that next level. The Promys enterprise business software for Professional Service organizations was specifically designed for companies with multiple lines of business, where the senior management team wants full visibility into all operational aspects of the business, as well having real-time access to information that will drive future growth decisions.

Promys also offers useful tools that help businesses determine the success of their existing processes to help them manage labor utilization, like their new Labor Utilization Quick Start Guide for service managers who want to maximize services profitability and get labor utilization under control.

About Promys

Promys is currently used by some of the largest IT Solution providers in North America, the UK and Australia. PROMYS was originally developed for a Cisco Gold/Master partner in 1998 to address the fundamental problem that IT solution providers face – how to tie professional services together with complex equipment solution delivery and multi-layered post sales support.

In 2003, Promys was spun off as its own corporate entity. Promys quickly added customers in the IT solution provider, systems integrator and managed services marketplace, including one of the largest and most recognized technology solution providers in the world.

Carpathia Hosting Provides New Managed Enterprise Cloud Solutions for Enterprises and Government Agencies


Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) June 2, 2009

Carpathia Hosting, the leading provider of enterprise managed hosting services for government agencies and businesses, announced today it has been selected by organizations such as Echo360, Nuvolus, Ventraq, Voices Heard Media and a leading federal systems integrator to provide customized managed cloud solutions using its Carpathia AlwaysOn/InstantOn hybrid model.

AlwaysOn/InstantOn is the first managed cloud solution designed for enterprises, differentiating Carpathia Hosting from industry competitors. Components of the AlwaysOn/InstantOn model are highly flexible and can be used to design custom solutions to meet the specific needs of individual organizations. Already, multiple enterprises and government agencies have deployed the solution within their enterprises.

Echo360

Echo360 sought a managed solution that would allow its higher education customers to have a reliable and stable hosting environment for on-demand access to university lectures. The customized solution designed by Carpathia Hosting utilizes Carpathia AlwaysOn capacity for the predictable portion of Echo360’s workload, and then will provide Carpathia InstantOn to allow bursting into the Carpathia Hosting storage and compute cloud in the future when usage peaks.

“Carpathia Hosting evaluated the entire problem we were trying to solve. The one-to-one design support provided by Carpathia Hosting resulted in a solution with the reliability of dedicated resources, and in the future, the cost savings associated with the benefits of a ‘burstable’ cloud computing model,” said Mark Jones, President of Echo360.

Nuvolus

Delivering virtual desktop solutions to the healthcare industry presents many challenges. Not only does Nuvolus have to ensure compliance with regulatory standards such as HIPAA, it also must achieve a cost model that drives down the IT cost for healthcare providers. Nuvolus selected the Carpathia AlwaysOn/InstantOn solution to meet these challenges. By using dedicated and cloud services tied together with Carpathia Cloud Orchestration, Nuvolus has been able to create a compelling solution for its clients.

“We originally looked at deploying in a public cloud computing provider’s infrastructure, but quickly came to the conclusion that this was sub-optimal in terms of price and the support we require to deliver the mission-critical services our customers demand. With Carpathia Hosting, we have engineered a horizontally-scaled infrastructure solution, taking advantage of cloud-bursting to dynamically add more resources as we need them. By leveraging the blended solution, we can also take advantage of additional services such as managed backup, data recovery and storage,” said Kevin Ellis, CEO of Nuvolus.

Ventraq

Ventraq required a solution that could scale to meet the demands of high volumes of data processing over a low latency network. By using the AlwaysOn/InstantOn platform, Carpathia Hosting was able to develop a solution that met this key requirement in a matter of days.

“Our customers have strict requirements for security and availability of our mission critical application. By blending dedicated infrastructure with Carpathia Hosting’s cloud services, we were able to take advantage of its ‘Cloud Orchestration’ technology to allow our dedicated machines to leverage cloud storage and for our web traffic to be distributed across dedicated and cloud servers,” commented John Louglin, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Mediation for Ventraq.

Voices Heard Media

Using Apache JMeter, Carpathia Hosting delivered an elastic testing cloud for Voices Heard Media, allowing load testing of thousands of simultaneous users against Voices Heard Media’s environment. In order to deliver this capability, the solution dynamically allocated cloud compute resources to scale to the required testing requirements. The process was controlled from a single JMeter console also running in Carpathia Hosting’s cloud infrastructure.

Steadfast Announces New Cloud Managed Services


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Steadfast (http://www.steadfast.net), a leading provider of cloud hosting, dedicated servers, colocation, hybrid hosting, and disaster recovery services, announced today the launch of their new cloud managed services. In conjunction with Steadfasts best-of-breed cloud hosting plans, server management takes the stresses of uptime, performance, and security away, giving customers the opportunity to focus their attention on their core business, not their server.

In the fifteen years we have been in business, our technical team has turned into one of the best in the industry, says Karl Zimmerman, President of Steadfast. We have always valued sharing our knowledge with customers through support services and management for colocated hardware and dedicated servers. Now, as more customers host their data on our private, public, and hybrid cloud hosting, we are pleased to provide the same excellent standard of managed services.

Customers choose cloud services for improved uptime, consistent performance, and instant scalability. The Steadfast cloud platform is fully redundant, fault tolerant, and fast enough to support even the most demanding of online experiences. However, maintaining excellent quality of service depends on constant management and monitoring. For just $ 80 per month for each Virtual Machine (VM), Steadfast Cloud Managed Services helps organizations get the most from their cloud hosting. Steadfast conducts proactive VM monitoring and outage response, carries out security updates, and can launch on-demand antivirus protection to keep data safe. As a result, customers can be certain their VMs are online, secure, and performing at their best.

Cloud hosting promises unparalleled service quality, but it does not happen without expertise, says Zimmerman. Poorly configured and inadequately maintained servers will never fulfill their true potential. At Steadfast, we have the expertise to guarantee virtual machines are taken care of at all times, 24/7/365. Of course, cloud management is not just about service quality. By leaving us to take care of day-to-day administration, our customers can save time and money that would have been spent on IT.

As with any hosting platform, cloud servers need to be routinely reconfigured and updated. Often, these day-to-day administrative tasks take attention away from core business objectives. For example, as developers release new versions of popular web applications, customers need to back up current data, install the new updates, and check that functionality is intact. Cloud managed services from Steadfast include unlimited system administration, including on-demand DNS management, free operating system (OS) reinstalls, and installation and upgrade of supported and 3rd party software. This eliminates the need for an expensive in-house IT department, or allows you to assign your existing team to more productive tasks.

Everybody wants to save time and money, and that is exactly what our managed services are for, says Zimmerman. For a low monthly cost, we make our team of technicians and engineers available to cloud hosting customers, freeing up their time and reducing the cost of in-house management. If customers are already paying for cloud servers, we strongly recommend they maximize performance and stability by adding cloud server management.

To date, Steadfast has built its reputation and success around an Always there philosophy, focused on giving customers complete support at all times. Now, with the launch of cloud managed services, customers can depend on Steadfasts ongoing availability for expert server management.

Malta (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

The European Managed Cloud Hosting provider, Cloudways, has announced today to revitalize its service plan in order to offer turnkey, fully managed WordPress hosting service to digital agencies around the world.

This plan will enable digital agenciesespecially those working on multiple WordPress projectsto avail full server / network level support as well as professional WordPress support and maintenance.

The company already provides managed solutions for various Content Management Systems (CMS) to a good number of digital / new media agencies globally, such as The Monkeys, Maksimer, Contrapositive, Limesharp, Fleka, and has a customer satisfaction rate of 94%.

Many of our clients have the tech expertise; however, they dont want to spend countless hours optimizing app performance, configuring plugins, troubleshooting issues, or managing their servers. We understand that very well and usually go the extra mile in helping our clients, and that, I believe, is our key to success, said Cloudways CTO, Pere Hospital.

Realizing the need to offer a dedicated plan, Cloudways has decided to address the following concerns of IS managers at digital agencies:

SECURITY: Cloudways has implemented strong security policies and process control mechanisms, which include state-of-the-art firewall, 24/7 monitoring and weekly security patching. The support team is managed by a group of certified security experts who have more than 10 years of professional experience.

PERFORMANCE: Cloudways sets up dedicated nginx and Apache servers on notable cloud providers. They also utilize advanced server-level caching (APC / Memcached / Varnish) and query optimization processes. The advantage is that unlike proprietary platforms, Cloudways builds customized solutions from the ground up, which allows every component of the infrastructure to be individually tweaked for optimizing performance. It also enables full visibility of data storage, processing and handling. Besides deploying custom infrastructures, they also use well-known plugins, commonly used by developers and agencies e.g. W3 Total Cache.

WORDPRESS MANAGEMENT: Redundant tasks, such as On-site / Offsite Backups, Disaster Recovery, Plugin Installation and Upgrades, and WordPress Multisite configuration and management, are included in the Fully Managed WordPress plan.

FLEXIBILITY: Digital agencies can have multiple sites hosted on a single server and retain 100% ownership of the hosting account. Furthermore, there are no contracts and the plan includes a 30-day money back guarantee.

They helped me in making sound decisions for my (WordPress Multisite) website, and it seemed that they did not push solutions for earning an extra buck. They really are client-centric, said Andreas Von Gunten, Cloud Technology Evangelist, Internet Freedom Activist and CEO of buchundnetz.com

For limited time, Cloudways is also offering free website migration, setup, and deployment.
