Private Cloud comes to Intermedia’s Private Label Reseller partner model

To our amazing Partners:

I am so excited to announce that we have added Private Cloud deployments to our white-label partner model. Now, you can offer each customer the most appropriate cloud deployment model – public or private – while maintaining complete control of your valued relationships.

What’s the advantage to you? I’ll let Irina Shamkova, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Intermedia, explain it:

“There’s no ‘one configuration fits all’ approach to the cloud. We bring the skills and the know-how partners need to be successful with designing and executing cloud deployments. We’ve always provided multi-tenant public cloud deployments, and now we are expanding our private cloud investments because of the opportunity it presents to our partners and customers. Private Cloud is a rapidly growing market and a huge opportunity for MSPs. By letting partners sell Private Cloud under their own brand and pricing, we are helping them differentiate from other providers as prospects look to customize and scale their cloud-based workloads.”

Private Cloud a growing opportunity for MSPs

According to IDC, the hosted private cloud market, which amounted to $8.9 billion in 2014, is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35.4 percent to reach $40.6 billion in 2019[1].

Private Cloud demonstrates an abundant opportunity for the channel. But we know that resource constraints can make selling and deploying Private Cloud a bit daunting for MSPs. That’s where the Intermedia Partner Program comes in.

The benefit of selling under Intermedia’s Private Label model is that you keep control over your customer relationships while letting our experts help close the deal. Plus, we’ll handle customer deployment and management. In other words, we help you focus on scaling your cloud business by handling the customer onboarding and migration process for you.

Advantages of our Private Label Reseller (PLR) model

Private Cloud joins other core Intermedia applications under our Private Label model, including Exchange email and SecuriSync® backup and file sharing, Skype® for Business and SharePoint. Now you have the flexibility to offer each customer the most appropriate cloud environment and applications, without worrying about staffing limitations. Customers can also easily migrate from a multi-tenant to a single-tenant cloud deployment as needs change.

Managed Public vs Managed Private: Intermedia’s cloud environments

Intermedia offers two managed cloud options to best meet customer needs. In our managed Public Cloud, companies share a multi-tenant enterprise-grade deployment. In our managed Private Cloud, companies receive a single-tenant enterprise-grade deployment on our infrastructure or on AWS, with increased flexibility to customize according to specific IT needs.

As part of our Worry-Free Experience™, both fully managed options include:

  • A 99.999% SLA for less than 26 seconds of downtime per month
  • Expert migration and onboarding at no added cost
  • 24/7 support
  • Integration with a full suite of business cloud applications
  • Centralized management of users, devices and services through the HostPilot® control panel

Intermedia’s Private Cloud takes customization and configuration capabilities to the next level. Designed by our team of cloud experts, this dedicated cloud environment offers your larger customers the flexibility to integrate business applications with custom applications, specialized security, and mobile device management, all with data replication across multiple datacenters for disaster recovery.
