OneNeck IT Solutions, an IT solutions and cloud hosting provider, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems with approximately 630 employees throughout the United States, has announced its participation in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program. As a direct result, OneNeck is adding Managed Microsoft Azure to round out their hybrid cloud portfolio.
“We’re excited to work with Microsoft and the opportunity to deliver an enhanced set of hybrid cloud solutions that will expand our client’s IT capabilities,” said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president at OneNeck. “We see this as a strategic and calculated way to enhance and strengthen our client’s IT platform while delivering greater access to a more flexible, agile and scalable environment.”
According to OneNeck’s CTO, adding Microsoft Azure to their hybrid cloud portfolio means more choices for customers. Now, when it comes to the cloud, OneNeck can:
- Architect on-premises cloud solutions for clients.
- Build-out its hosted private cloud offering, ReliaCloud to meet clients’ most demanding mission-critical computing needs.
- Deliver a “solid, reliable” public cloud solution via the Managed Azure Public Cloud solution.
- Design and deploy any combination of the above solutions to best-fit client’s needs.
The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program enables partners such as OneNeck to manage a customer’s complete Azure lifecycle. By offering Managed Azure solutions, customers can take advantage of cloud services while OneNeck maintains the entire billing process and directly manages the support.
“This is our chance to be the single source, ensuring accountability throughout the entire partnership,” added Mr. Harder. “And, because we are able to provide direct billing, sell combined offers and services, as well as directly provision, manage and support products and services, it affords our clients greater efficiencies, too.”
OneNeck expects to leverage this new opportunity to expand their cloud sales opportunities. “We will help expedite our client’s move to the cloud by providing a comprehensive end-to-end hybrid cloud platform,” added Harder. “We will architect, deploy and manage cloud solutions powered by Azure. For added scale, we can also deliver a true hybrid cloud solution that incorporates any combination of Microsoft Azure, ReliaCloud or on premises solution and custom-tailor them to meet our client’s specific needs.”
