Cloud hosting provider Hostway Corporation has announced an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) reseller hosting program that enables smaller resellers to sell, provision, bill and manage their own private-labeled cloud hosting products with no internal infrastructure, easy web store development, and nominal upfront costs.
The new reseller hosting platform integrates Hostway’s FlexCloud Servers public cloud hosting service with Hostway-hosted Parallels Automation software for delivering and managing IaaS cloud hosting products. The program is open to any reseller inside or outside the Parallels ecosystem, allowing small and mid-sized VARs, MSPs and consultancies to participate with no investment except SSL certificate and domain registration.
The new platform expands a syndicated Hostway/Parallels public cloud reseller hosting program introduced last year for larger service providers who have deployed Parallels Automation software in-house.
Bundled hosting solutions
Hostway’s reseller hosting package includes a brandable reseller storefront – provided through the Parallels Automation interface – for self-serve provisioning of compute, memory and storage. Other benefits would include on-demand scalability and pay-as-you-go wholesale rates provided by the FlexCloud Servers platform, fully customizable retail pricing, managed as well as self-serve provisioning options, and a tiered discount structure that increases resellers’ discount as sales rise.
Resellers would be able to seamlessly bundle their software applications, professional services or managed hosting service offerings with the cloud hosting solution.
