Microtech-Tel, a voice and data managed services provider from Denver, has announced that as of January 1, 2014, it will change its name to “NewCloud Networks” to reflect the new generation of cloud hosting services they have been offering since 2011. The company celebrated its 25th anniversary in October of 2013.
Most of our services are now offered in the Cloud, hence the name NewCloud Networks,” said the company’s founder Sam V. Kumar. “Nothing has changed except the name. This is not an acquisition or buy-out of any kind. We are operating from the same office with the same employees our customers have come to know.”
Channel partner program
Since 2011, when the company introduced their cloud hosting services to the national U.S. market, NewCloud has acquired business from 25 states across the country and is projected to reach 40 states by the end of 2014.
NewCloud’s success in expanding across the country is in large part due to its channel partner program. “Our channel partners have been instrumental in our success as a Cloud provider,” Kumar added. “Their customer relationships have made it possible for our business to grow rapidly. We look forward to expanding our channel in the near future and moving into more markets.” The company’s target prospects are small to mid-sized enterprises with 25 to 1,000 employees.
Best-of-breed cloud hosting services
NewCloud Networks’ best-of-breed cloud hosting services are hosted in the company’s state-of-the-art data center in the Denver Tech Center. This primary data center is connected to redundant locations in Colorado. NewCloud will be inaugurating a data center in Phoenix, Arizona in January 2014 and has plans to build additional Cloud pods in Chicago, Dallas, New York/New Jersey, and Las Vegas. These locations will be connected via a 10 Gig MPLS network, creating a seamless private backbone that will cater to all 50 states.
The company operates primarily in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud hosting space and their offerings include virtual servers, backup and disaster recovery, virtual desktops, managed hosting services, and cloud communications (which includes Hosted PBX).
