StrataScale Launches Channel Partner Program
Sacramento, Calif. — March 10
StrataScale Inc., a provider of automated managed server hosting solutions, announced its StrataScale Channel Partner Program for resellers of its IronScale on-demand managed hosting solution. Developed to enable resellers to address the demand for cost-effective next-generation managed services, the StrataScale Partner Program supports partners throughout the entire sales and support cycles, the company says. StrataScale also says that through the program, value-added resellers (VARs), consulting services partners and systems integrators can reduce costs, quickly realize recurring revenues and see improved resource efficiency for increased profitability with the IronScale hosting solution.
StrataScale's managed server hosting product, IronScale, features auto-commissioning and auto-provisioning of servers. With IronScale, the company says, bringing a physical server environment up only takes minutes, not hours or days. IronScale also features on-demand real-time control of servers, security, storage and network management from anywhere at any time.
The StrataScale Channel Partner Program also includes product training and pre-sales technical support. The program is coupled with StrataScale’s customer support programs.
"While companies are putting off capital expenditures and looking to reduce costs as a result of the current economic slump, many are turning to service-based models that can deliver enterprise-class performance and availability, but are easier on the wallet,” said Bob Laliberte, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “StrataScale brings to market an efficient, on-demand software model that provides the requisite service levels for a predictable monthly fee, eliminating large upfront capital outlays. This is an attractive value proposition for channel partners who want to pass on these efficiencies to their end user customers.”
“End users value outsourced IT solutions and increasingly demand that their managed services providers deliver more reliable and higher performing IT capabilities,” said Robert Vincent, general manager and COO of StrataScale. “Resellers in turn must improve their productivity and profitability. IronScale enables our VAR and integrator partners to dynamically and efficiently build, manage and cost-effectively scale latest technology IT environments for their customers with the full support of our StrataScale Channel Partner Program behind them.”
