French security VAD Hermitage Solutions has again expanded its solution portfolio with the addition of Virtuozzo, a comprehensive cloud services platform that is easy to deploy and manage. Virtuozzo's cloud offering enables cloud service providers to offer their SMB customers a complete portfolio of offerings consumed on a recurring subscription basis. Virtuozzo's platform enables local or regional service providers to differentiate themselves from the complex and expensive offerings of popular hyperscalers.
Using the Virtuozzo Cloud Platform, resellers, integrators and service providers can develop a powerful, reliable and accessible extended cloud service portfolio for their end customers while leaving their internal resources available to provide differentiating services and quality support.
"Virtuozzo has taken the challenge of democratising the cloud to SMEs by offering a comprehensive, accessible and easy-to-use cloud service. We are proud to contribute to this mission, while offering our reseller and service provider partners a high-potential, competitive offering in the SMB market segment, which has no alternative to date", said Alain Takahashi, president of Hermitage Solutions.
Virtuozzo Cloud Platform is the first comprehensive cloud offering dedicated to cloud service providers, managed service providers, independent software vendors (ISVs), hosting providers and their SMB customers. It enables providers to easily deploy cloud infrastructure services (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and a wide range of products as a service (XaaS) in any cloud environment (public, private or hybrid). Virtuozzo solutions are proven to be highly scalable and flexible, offering the benefits of OpenStack with powerful orchestration and automation features.
"The cloud has been touted as easy and accessible for businesses looking to deliver more value while lowering costs. In reality, it has failed to deliver, especially for small and medium-sized businesses", said Ahmed Amni, Global Channel Sales Director for Virtuozzo. "Virtuozzo's ambition, in collaboration with Hermitage Solutions, is to offer the SMB market a flexible and competitive alternative cloud platform. We are proud to support Hermitage Solutions in diversifying its offerings while filling this long-ignored gap in the market."
