365 Data Centers, with 17 data centers across the U.S. one of the top U.S. colocation providers by market presence, has announced a business relationship with IT distributor Ingram Micro. Under the U.S. agreement, 365 Data Centers’ on-demand colocation services are available now via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
The business agreement means that Ingram Micro channel partners can further diversify their offerings by building private cloud services, running temporary workloads and migrating applications to a hybrid public-private cloud model in a secured environment with access to 365 Data Centers’ on-demand colocation services.
365 Data Centers recently launched 365 Quick Start, a commitment-free, pay-for-use colocation bundle that includes the cabinet, cross connect, power and internet bandwidth that businesses of all sizes need in order to ease into colocation.
365 Quick Start would specifically cater to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the channel market by leveraging 365 Data Centers’ 17 downtown colocation facilities across the U.S. and addressing the need for highly secure and reliable data center services. By going to market as part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, 365 Data Centers is able to sell through to thousands of MSPs and VARs, enabling them to consume its colocation services with the ease of a cloud-like consumption model.
“Demand for data center services is growing as more small and midsize businesses seek to leverage cloud-based services to build greater efficiencies, performance and scale,” said Jason Bystrak, senior director, Ingram Micro Cloud, Americas. “Ingram Micro is pleased to welcome 365 Data Centers to our growing Cloud Marketplace’s portfolio of products, solutions and services.”
