Resellers will be able to offer a customisable version of a newly-launched cloud computing service for SMEs, developed by iServe owner Orcon. Orcon's head of emerging business, Charlie Boyd, says within two months resellers will be able to customise the cloud offering for their customers, but the level of customisation has not yet been decided. The service can currently be resold without customisation. Boyd says local development and support means pricing for the service is competitive in comparison to international companies. Compute and storage pricing starts at six cents per hour per CPU and per 512MB of RAM. In addition, Orcon will offer a virtual server which can be provisioned in real time by customers. Its entry price is $99 plus GST for a single CPU, 512MB of RAM, 15GB storage and 25GB data traffic package. Orcon acquired iServe in May. iServe offers website hosting, dedicated or virtual server hosting, cloud services and domain name services. "One of the major selling points of [cloud] technology is lower costs and this will enable companies to focus their expenditure on delivering the goods and services that they specialise in,” says Orcon CEO Scott Bartlett.
