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.

CogniVue Launches APEX Partner Program at EVA Summit


Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

CogniVue Corporation, which licenses its APEX Image Cognition Processor (ICP) technology to semiconductor vendors, announced today the launch of its APEX Partner ProgramTM at the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara, CA. CogniVues APEX ICP technology drives a >100x advantage in performance per area per power for embedded vision processing compared to conventional processor architectures, making it a top choice for System-on-Chip (SoC) vendors integrating embedded vision into their products. With the APEX Partner Program, CogniVue is creating an ecosystem of dedicated APEX-certified application software and design services partners.

CogniVue provides not just the APEX ICP core for high performance low power embedded vision processing, but also a unique set of APEX programming tools as well as an extensive suite of image and vision processing algorithms in our APEX-CV library, said Tom Wilson VP Business Development at CogniVue. Now we are working with a selected and expert set of partners in the APEX Partner Program to ensure the end customers of the SoC product have a complete set of application and design service providers to get to market quickly with APEX-enabled solutions.

AppZero, charter partner in the AWS Solution Provider Program, facilitates movement of Windows server-side applications to Amazon’s EC2

Andover, MA (PRWEB) October 12, 2009 – AppZero, pioneer in server-

side application virtualization was recognized as a charter partner in Amazon’s (AMZN) newly launched AWS Solution Provider Program. AppZero and some select providers of innovative technology and services were joined on this inaugural list by established industry leaders such as CA, Citrix, IBM and Oracle.

AppZero contributes to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) ecosystem through fast and frictionless provisioning of complex Windows server applications to Amazon’s EC2. First to market with technology that packages server applications as Virtual Application Appliances (VAAs) — pre-installed, preconfigured applications that contain zero operating system components — AppZero is the only tool available for decoupling server-side applications from operating systems. This VAA approach permits applications to be easily moved between datacenter and cloud infrastructures and back, without cloud lock-in.

The blend of AppZero’s risk-free application mobility with Amazon’s industry-defining economics encourages enterprise-scale customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to accelerate movement to the cloud. Because AppZero makes no change to the application, server applications can freely move from the datacenter to EC2 and back in any combinations of usage that make operational and economic sense.

Many enterprises turn to EC2 for highly elastic development and test environments, business continuity and fail-over, as well as for low utilization or bursty, seasonal applications – most commonly in a hybrid model that strategically blends cloud and datacenter. ISVs increasingly provision their proof-of-concept (POC) work to the cloud for instantaneous deployment to customer sites. AppZero facilitates multi-directional application movement, removing labor, cost, and concerns about lock-in.

Greg O’Connor, CEO of AppZero notes, “Amazon clearly recognizes the importance of building an ecosystem of first-rate partners who offer solutions and services to maximize use of AWS products. AppZero’s ground-breaking technology speeds and eases movement of server applications to the cloud – Amazon included. I see being selected as a charter AWS solution provider as validation by a business visionary and technology master. And it’s a very public opportunity to be known by the company we keep.”

AppZero software creates, runs, and maintains VAAs in Linux, Solaris, and Windows environments. Customers can drag and drop AppZero VAAs from one cloud server to another, as well as from cloud to datacenter and back.

About AppZero

AppZero develops software for creating, controlling and maintaining Virtual Application Appliances (VAAs), server-side application appliances that make provisioning of applications as services almost instantaneous: across a network on any server (physical or virtual), in the datacenter, hosted or in the cloud.

Vision-e Supports Veterans through the Veterans2Work Career Development Program

Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

Vision-e, a Salesforce partner providing sales productivity software, applications, and implementation, today announced that Donald Bohrisch has joined the Vision-e Career Development program as a Salesforce Administrator. At Vision-e Bohrisch will receive mentoring and training as he assists with Salesforce administration tasks, learning skills that will add to his already-completed Salesforce Administration training, military technology training, and team leadership training.

Vision-e connected with Bohrisch through the Veterans2Work program, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Veterans2Work program places qualified veterans directly with partner employers or employs them in the Veterans2Work services company.

Veterans2Work provides its clients with a variety of training programs from which to choose. For Bohrisch, the Veterans2Work Technology Training program, which prepares veterans for careers as Salesforce Administrators, was the right choice. The 16-week program starts with 4 weeks of informal self-study and hands-on exposure to the Salesforce.com environment. This is then followed by two weeks of formal, on-site instruction, and then a paid internship with a Salesforce customer company. During this time, participants also receive individualized tutoring to help the candidates pass the Salesforce certification test. The final step of the program involves placement into a permanent position as a Salesforce Administrator.

The founder of FedEx, Frederick Smith, was a Marine forward air controller in Vietnam. Smith came from a well-off family and went to Yale before Vietnam. But it was in Vietnam that he came to understand logistics. He went on to found FedEx in 1971. Biro then goes on to highlight five abilities and attitudes that veterans typically have, which other candidates may lack. These include: Leadership; grace under pressure; a performance and results-oriented focus; the willingness for self-sacrifice; and outstanding communication and goal-setting skills.

FreedomVoice Launches New Partner Program for VoIP Resellers and MSPs

Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2014

FreedomVoice, one of the largest US providers of cloud-based VoIP phone systems, today announced exciting new changes to the FreedomVoice Partner Program, focused on increasing the success of MSP and Reseller partners. This new program is designed to meet the unique business challenges and needs facing both the MSP and Reseller models today.

Historically, it has been difficult for partners to offer VoIP Telephony solutions at a decent profit margin, due to the complexities of dealing with carriers, tax and regulatory issues, and low hardware margins. FreedomVoice is changing the game by making voice easy to sell, frictionless to install, and offers a unique high margin pricing model.

By building separate programs for MSPs and Resellers, FreedomVoice is creating a business model designed for partner and customer success. Each program has three tiers: Partner, Premier and Elite levels. The tiers have increasing requirements for eligibility, but offer commensurate sales, marketing and technical benefits to the partner. Key benefits include:
