Prov.net, a hosted systems, colocation, connectivity, and cloud services software company headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island, is now partnering with Virtuozzo. Prov.net joins Virtuozzo’s HYBRID Partner Program as a premium member, allowing the company to operate as a worldwide reseller, cloud service provider (CSP), and technology partner.
Through software tools, networking solutions, and specialized data center designs, Prov.net helps businesses design, construct, and deploy scalable cloud infrastructure.
Virtuozzo on the other hand is a global cloud enablement solutions provider for cloud service providers (CSPs), managed service providers (MSPs), and hosting providers looking to establish and exploit alternative cloud services.
The firms will work together to provide Prov.net’s clients, including MSPs, CSPs, MTDCs, and enterprises, with simplified cloud and Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS) solutions built on Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure. Key advantages of these solutions would be the following: quick to develop and bring to market; easy to scale up or down; and cost-effective via pay-as-you-go pricing. Prov.net joins a rapidly increasing community of Virtuozzo-powered alternative cloud infrastructure and cloud platform providers.
“Our partnership with Prov.net will accelerate Virtuozzo’s mission to be the alternative cloud market leader,” said Alex Fine, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Virtuozzo. “As we enter the alternative cloud decade, technology continues to advance. Workloads are growing but so is the complexity of the landscape and the skills gap within organizations. Businesses ever more reliant on the expertise of resellers and MSPs to advise them on the latest technologies that are best suited to their needs. It’s critical we choose trusted, proven partners like Prov.net, with deep technical competencies and a proven history of servicing Enterprise and XSP clients alike, to serve as alternative cloud providers.”
With Virtuozzo, Prov.net is building out its alternative cloud offering with three new lines of business:
- Software Licensing
- Private Cloud Hybrid Cloud Services (Alpha3 Cloud)
- Multitenant Cloud Services (Alpha3 Cloud)
“Virtuozzo’s commitment to our partnership is strong and empowers us to solve our customers’ problems of today and tomorrow, including the freedom to choose how technology is consumed and how IT spending is budgeted,” said Ron Sacks, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Prov.net. “Prov.net’s ever growing portfolio of cloud software and related tools, coupled with our Alpha3 Cloud, are best-in-class cost-effective solutions. Solutions that will help our customers accelerate their business transformations as they reposition to capitalize on all the alternative cloud can offer.”
The announcement follows the news of Virtuozzo acquiring OnApp, a well-known cloud solutions provider for service providers including MSPs.
