Infrastructure as a Service from Exclusive Networks UK Equips Partners to Take Cloud Consumption to the SME
Allows partners to sell the benefits of resilient, scalable, secure, easy-to-use, PAYG enterprise cloud with no upfront investment via Exclusive Networks’ fully managed infrastructure.
LONDON, UK – 14 July 2020 – Exclusive Networks UK today announced the launch of its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offer to partners, enabling them to profit faster and easier from utilising the cloud to support business innovation and digital transformation, and expand virtualisation opportunities into the SME space. Exclusive Networks IaaS has been designed for simple, straightforward onboarding so that partners can accelerate revenues and rapidly establish a platform for further cross-selling and upselling of related managed and professional services.
Exclusive Networks IaaS brings all the key benefits of public cloud offerings, but without the uncertainty of variable pricing levied by those providers. As it is based on Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), Exclusive Networks IaaS also enables greater platform flexibility for bespoke requirements and represents a compelling consumption-based alternative to procuring HCI, which is highly attractive to SMEs.
“Customer organisations were already being drawn to cloud-based IT platforms and services, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated that trend significantly. Our IaaS proposition equips partners to address the agility and scale their customers need to respond to changing demands,” said Graham Jones, Regional Director, UK&I at Exclusive Networks. “SMEs especially lack the skills to navigate the complexity of public cloud services, and have zero appetite for their unpredictable volume-based costs. Public cloud also provides limited commercial incentive for partners. IaaS is different, providing simple access to a powerful platform on a fixed cost basis, delivering far higher margins and great opportunities to expand the cloud journey.”
The Exclusive Networks IaaS cloud platform is built across multiple UK data centres with resilient power and network connectivity, as well as security baked-in. Ordering and provisioning of IaaS is made simple via a partner portal that provides visibility of all services – each of which is available on a white-label basis. Pre-defined blueprints mean that partners can rollout best-in-class server deployments in minutes without having to be cloud experts. Exclusive Networks also plans to unveil a complete partner programme around IaaS with training, support and enablement including out-of-the-box marketing resources.
