StrataScale, Inc., a leading provider of fully automated managed server hosting solutions, today announced its StrataScale Channel Partner Program for resellers of its IronScaleSM on-demand managed hosting solution. Developed to enable resellers to address the growing demand for cost-effective next-generation managed services, the StrataScale Partner Program supports partners throughout the entire sales and support cycles. Through the program, value-added resellers (VARs), consulting services partners, and systems integrators can reduce costs, more 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 allowing resellers to simplify their managed services delivery and provide opportunities for new recurring revenue streams. With IronScale, 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 anytime in a single, turnkey solution. This new level of simplicity, flexibility, and control allows resellers to do more with less to reduce costs by dynamically managing infrastructure and scaling based on business requirements – requiring fewer resources, saving time, and eliminating the need for increased capital expenditures by continually purchasing and over-provisioning resources.
The StrataScale Channel Partner Program includes a range of support benefits, including in-depth product training and pre-sales technical support to ensure that the design and implementation of IronScale automated hosting solutions satisfy each customer’s unique business requirements. The program is coupled with StrataScale’s array of Customer Support Programs that offer options including 24x7 technical support and rapid solutions delivery.
"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.”
The StrataScale Channel Partner Program is designed to provide comprehensive pre- and post-sales support to drive revenues. Program elements include:
• Strategic sales support;
• Technical and sales training;
• Dedicated channel sales manager and inside sales support;
• Volume pricing discounts;
• Enhanced partner web portal;
• Demonstration accounts;
• Marketing toolkit and support;
• Technical support;
• ROI tool and pricing calculator.
“End-users value outsourced IT solutions and increasingly demand that their managed services providers deliver more reliable and higher performing IT capabilities. Resellers in turn must improve their productivity and profitability,” said Robert Vincent, general manager and COO of StrataScale. "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.”
