CloudCentral Expands Partner Network with Raft of New Signings
CloudCentral, an award-winning provider of secure Australian cloud computing solutions announces today the expansion of its Partner Program with new signings from Managed Service providers, Systems Integrators, Telecommunications Providers and Independent Software Vendors. New Program entrants including Infinite Networks, OOKI, Simple ID and Standard Computers will benefit from tailored, branded and customised enterprise-grade cloud platforms which allow them to enter and extend their activity in the cloud space.
For Founder and CEO of CloudCentral, Kristoffer Sheather the recently launched Partner Program has proved highly successful. “The response from the market has re-confirmed that wholesale Australian-based cloud provision is what is in demand. We are working with our partners to meet the demands of considerable business opportunities within the cloud marketplace.”
Sheather continued: “This is the year we are experiencing rapid expansion from the early adopter stage to customers now moving specific workloads to the cloud and leveraging the cloud model for backup and disaster recovery.”
From CloudCentral’s perspective the success of the Partner Program to date is linked to its continued investment and innovation to exceed current market offerings: “We are continuing to invest and innovate our range to remain one step ahead of market demands,” Sheather concluded.
CloudCentral has announced its intention to list on the Australian Stock Exchange via a reverse takeover of Dromana Estate Limited (DMY) (Dromana) in June. This will enable CloudCentral to raise capital to continue to invest in enhancing its unique Cloud System and expand its sales and marketing presence to complement its multiple data centres across Australia.
At Infinite Networks (Infinite) we excel at developing custom web and networking solutions for our Enterprise and Government customers. “The CloudCentral partnership enables Infinite’s philosophy of using a ‘fit for purpose’ cloud Infrastructure Provider for its customer’s solutions and application requirements. CloudCentral enables Infinite to leverage the gap between global cloud and its local bespoke offerings. CloudCentral and Infinite have been working together for some time and this agreement formalises our partnership and paves the way for growth via our complementary strengths,” said Anthony Bortolotto, Managing Director, Infinite Networks
OOKI, a cloud services consultancy, broker and integrator, explains its confidence in the recently signed partnership: “Our customers journey to the cloud will now benefit from CloudCentral’s highly scalable, purpose-built cloud platform together with our expertise in defining, designing and deploying effective business service solutions. We are looking forward to effectively delivering hybrid cloud solutions across our customer base,” said Martin Welsby, Director of Solutions at OOKI.
Under its partnership agreement CloudCentral will provide wholesale cloud services to Simple ID, a managed Information Technology (IT) services provider.
“Since establishment two decades ago, Simple ID has always remained focused on innovation. Today by embracing the cloud and working with an Australian partner, CloudCentral, we are able to extend our premium service offerings for customers looking for an edge. They tick the box on data sovereignty requirements and the personal service from the professional local sales and technical support team is exactly what our customers need.”
Becoming a full service partner with CloudCentral has provided our customer base with the flexibility and resilience of the cloud, provision of back-up and disaster recovery services. This allows them to focus on their core business, investing in new offerings rather than managing infrastructure,” said Gavin Keane General Manager Simple ID.
Selected as a key cloud partner due to its on the ground and highly professional sales and technical support , Adam Goudie, Managing Director of Standard Computers commented: “We believe that our partnership with CloudCentral is a natural evolution for our service offerings, and most importantly, for our customers in this new world of cloud computing. With the addition of cloud services to our onsite managed services offering, our small to medium business customers now have access to the benefits of cloud from both a technology and investment perspective. We are confident that this partnership with CloudCentral will produce positive outcomes for our client base already heading to the cloud,” said Goudie. Standard Computers small to medium business customers have access to cloud services from April 2014. https://www.standard.com.au
