Oct 22, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Recently Carat Computer Systems joined Netplan Internet Solutions' partner program for IT value added resellers (VARs). After bad experiences with other cloud service providers, Carat Computer Systems found Netplan's partner program provided the resources and features they needed to improve and expand their business.
Numerous outages and limited visibility into a rented cloud based IT environment left Carat Computer Systems unable to provide its services to its customers. The search for a better solution led them to Netplan Internet Solution's partner program. Using VMware vCloud based infrastructure with a web based management console called vCloud Director; Netplan's partners have full control over the cloud services they provide to their customers.
"Our previous experiences with cloud providers put us into some tough positions - we just weren't able to meet our customer's needs," says James Hankins, Business Development Manager at Carat Computer Systems. "Now that we've partnered with Netplan we have full control and flexibility over our cloud infrastructure allowing us to build, test and deploy on demand," says Hankins.
According to an IDC study, 75% of UK managers see cloud computing as a means to solve key business issues. By teaming up with a trusted cloud hosting provider, resellers capture part of that ever growing market.
Carat is just one of the many small to medium IT VARs that offer strong customer relations and product knowledge, but do not have the capability to deliver data centre services.
As a Netplan partner, VARs are able to address business issues by confidently providing these benefits to their customers:
- Provision virtual infrastructure instantly
- Install their applications
- Manage and support their hosted environment with robust service level agreements
- Design and implement disaster recovery plans
"The focus for our team here at Netplan, is the on-going support of our channel partners and the development and global expansion of our Data Centres around the world," says Taylor Deakyne, Senior Cloud Account Manager at Netplan. "Netplan is 100% committed to providing not only the best technical support to our partners, but also to assist them with joint marketing efforts in order to generate new sales opportunities."
