Host.net (Booth #1709) is announcing at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo a partner program enabling data centers, VARs and telecommunications agents to sell cloud computing-based Virtual Private Data Centers (vPDCs) that the company says dramatically reduce clients’ IT spending, strengthen data protection, facilitate regulatory compliance and provide 100 percent uptime. All infrastructure, 24×7 monitoring and security functions are handled by Host.net, enabling partners to generate new service revenues with no capital or personnel investment.
Participating channel members can offer their clients instant access to terabytes of storage, a typical 80 percent reduction in physical server needs, immediate availability of data backups, rapid disaster recovery and more through Host.net’s virtualization technology. Clients’ virtual systems can be deployed in minutes at Host.net data centers with no drain on partners’ IT resources.
A private-label option is available for partners who wish to use their own branding, and tiered incentives are offered for volume sales.
“Every business today is coping with shrinking budgets, rising regulatory demands and the ongoing need for increased computing resources. The market is moving to virtual infrastructure because of the cost and continuity advantages,” said Skip St. Pierre, Director, Channel Development for Host.net. “This demand translates into lucrative revenue opportunities for our channel partners.”
Host.net says its custom-built, multimillion-dollar vPDC platform and more than 10 years of virtual computing experience also give channel partners key performance, high availability and data protection capabilities not available from any other provider.
