IT distributor Ingram Micro has added dinCloud virtual servers to its Cloud Marketplace in North America, providing channel partners such as VARs (Value Added Resellers), MSPs (Managed Service Providers), and SIs (Systems Integrators) with the opportunity to include dinCloud virtual servers in their cloud offerings.
Ingram Micro is already offering a hosted desktop service from dinCloud to its growing base of cloud-focused channel partners. The expanded distribution agreement allows Ingram Micro to add virtual servers to the company’s Cloud Market Place in North America. dinServer is available in monthly and annual subscriptions, with special promotions available to Ingram Micro partners.
Customers choosing dinCloud virtual servers are provided with an encapsulated environment with their own firewall, private virtual servers, private virtual network, and private storage (powered by NetApp) that makes up their virtual private data center. Each customer’s environment is supported with regular backups, and as with all of dinCloud’s services, the hosted virtual servers have multiple layers of physical and virtual security.
In addition to hosted servers, dinCloud offers complete business provisioning in the cloud, where customer applications, desktops, servers, and data are co-located in a secure, virtual private data center. This would improve efficiencies, performance, and time to market, while simplifying IT infrastructure management. dinManage, a cloud orchestration and management platform, is included as a value add to give customer’s complete control of their IT infrastructure. Customers can configure, upgrade, downgrade, add or remove servers, and have command line access.
