Hosting and cloud services enablement firm Parallels is helping Microsoft channel partners offer the software giant’s cloud services.
The companies said this week at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference that Parallels, which works with the channel, now supports Microsoft’s new Cloud Solution Provider Program with its SmartStart for Office 365.
SmartStart uses the Parallels Automation platform that lets resellers, MSPs and other cloud partners sell and deliver differentiated portfolios with every Office 365 subscription. SmartStart includes user training and certification, reference service plans and a customized storefront.
Parallels said partners who deploy Parallels Automation immediately will be ready to offer new Microsoft cloud services as they become available.
