CLOUD PARTNERS — IT and communications provider EarthLink (Booth 301) said on Tuesday at Cloud Partners, a Channel Partners event, that its partners can now offer clients EarthLink365+, the company's newest enterprise-class hosted cloud solution made possible by its recent acquisition of CenterBeam.
EarthLink 365+ is designed to deliver Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Lync, which enable employees to connect and collaborate in real-time in and out of the office, using a familiar interface so there's no learning curve to impact productivity. The solution complements any existing IT infrastructure so that customers can utilize a hybrid model (blending on-premise, managed and/or cloud services), gain enhanced security, easy implementation and 24/7 live, North-America-based support, EarthLink said.
“The EarthLink 365+ collaboration suite offers our partners and VARs key advantages over Microsoft Office 365," said J. R. Cook, EarthLink VP of partner sales. “Unlike Microsoft 365 Online, EarthLink 365+ does not eliminate many features of the on-premise Exchange solution. Instead, EarthLink 365+ delivers 28 on-premise Exchange, SharePoint and Lync features in the cloud, including administration, applications, client access, compliance/archiving, directory, security and voice mail."
