Parallels, a leading hosting and cloud services enablement provider, today announced support for the Microsoft Windows Azure Pack through the APS (Application Packaging Standard) for Parallels Automation. This new product allows hosting service providers to bring the innovations from Microsoft’s Windows Azure public cloud platform into a service provider’s datacenter, speeding the time to market to deliver the latest solutions from Microsoft ahead of competitors. Parallels, a Microsoft Global ISV and Gold Certified Partner, developed this solution in collaboration with Microsoft, extending Parallels’ leadership in enabling Microsoft Cloud solutions via cloud distribution channels.

“Parallels has been collaborating with Microsoft since 2007 to enable the delivery of cloud services for telecom companies, domain hosting providers, distributors, managed service providers and VARs,” said John Zanni, chief marketing officer, Service Provider, Parallels. “Our experience with Parallels Automation provisioning and managing Office 365, SharePoint, Exchange, Lync and Microsoft Dynamics CRM confirms the demand for services based on Microsoft technologies. By adding Windows Azure Pack we are expanding the portfolio of Microsoft cloud solutions and giving our service provider partners another set of high demand services they can deliver to their customers.”

Windows Azure Pack
As companies large and small modernize their IT infrastructure, many are realizing the significant benefits that come with moving servers and applications to the cloud. This move to the cloud presents huge opportunities for service providers who support Windows Azure Pack.

“As part of our Cloud OS vision, Microsoft is fully committed to the success of hosting service providers. We are thrilled to expand our long-standing relationship with Parallels as we work to reach the broad and diverse cloud distribution channel and speed time to market for our valued hosting service providers,” said Eugene Saburi, general manager, Cloud OS Marketing, Microsoft. “Parallels has demonstrated deep understanding of the hosting and cloud needs of SMBs, as witnessed by the continued success of Microsoft partners using the Parallels platform.”

The Windows Azure Pack enables service providers to offer rich, self-service, multi-tenant services that are consistent across on-premises and cloud deployments and offer the advanced cloud capabilities of Windows Azure. These technologies include the ability to offer IaaS and hosted databases with virtual networks, high-density scalable websites, as well as an enterprise service bus. The Parallels Automation environment allows for seamless provisioning of these new services, as well as the consolidated billing with other offerings in the service provider’s environment.

“We are excited about the prospects that we now have with Microsoft and Parallels to offer Windows Azure to our customers in our local Tier-4 Datacenter,” said Charles Lalieu, managing executive, Cloud Service Brokerage, Business Connexion. “These are just the type of localized services that the SMB market and resellers require to drive the cloud penetration in Africa.”

“By extending our portfolio to include Windows Azure Pack, we're accelerating our resellers ability to deliver hybrid cloud services tailored to the unique requirements of the market,” said JJ Milner, founder and chief cloud architect, Global Micro Solutions. “Working with Parallels allows us to stay focused on sales, marketing and support without worrying about the backend software needs of the customer it’s a win-win partnership.”

“We’ve seen increasing demand for Microsoft’s proven ecosystem of system management and development tools from both new and existing customers,” said John Enright, president of HostMySite. “The Windows Azure pack makes it easy for us to provision Microsoft-based solutions such as Hyper-V and Parallels Automation is the glue that ties it all together - providing customers with a single management interface that allows them to control all aspects of their application and hosting infrastructure. Working with Parallels has also allowed us to greatly accelerate the time to market for new technologies so we can get them into the hands of our customers as fast as possible.”

“The Windows Azure Pack APS Package enables Ipeer to answer the demand for proven Azure Pack Cloud technology hosted locally, hybrid cloud integration and the freedom to move between vendors,” said Johan Hedlund, chief executive officer, Ipeer. “It has performed well and quite frankly, we can’t wait to launch it in Scandinavia.”

Recently Microsoft announced the Cloud OS Network, a worldwide consortium of more than 25 cloud service providers to deliver cloud-based infrastructure and applications built on the Microsoft Cloud Platform, which includes Windows Server with Hyper-V, System Center, and the Windows Azure Pack. Parallels partners with many of these service providers to deliver value-added services to quickly develop new services and increase revenue.
