Solution Provider Inks Partnership Agreement with IBM SoftLayer, Expands Integration and Cloud Service Offerings
NEW YORK, NY – Dec. 9, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today that it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with IBM SoftLayer that will expand Logicalis’ already extensive cloud service offerings in North America.
The agreement comes in response to rapid changes in the way CIOs want to use the cloud to leverage new capabilities and cost savings for their organizations. Logicalis, a longtime IBM Business Partner, is meeting those needs by adding extended capabilities to its already strong cloud and managed services portfolio; the relationship with IBM SoftLayer is part of that strategy.
“The way businesses look at computing is changing rapidly today,” says Mike Martin, Senior Vice President, Solutions and Services, Logicalis US. “CIOs are not as concerned about the physical hardware and software as they are about delivering compute resources in the way their users want to consume them. That means they need rapid self-provisioning, automation and capacity-on-demand, all attributes that they’ve come to rely on the cloud to provide, and they need those attributes packaged in new ways that make delivering those compute resources both cost-effective and easy to manage. Through Logicalis’ agreement with SoftLayer, we are extending our already strong cloud portfolio to include a new platform that expands our ability to build environments to support our clients’ varied business workloads.”
Logicalis US boasts a wide variety of cloud services, including its own multi-tenant managed cloud, a multi-tenant self-service “on demand” cloud, and a Logicalis-hosted private cloud, all created to offer flexibility and choice to enterprise clients looking for new ways to deliver high-performance compute capabilities to their users in the most cost-effective, efficient and strategic ways possible.
Today, the company announced it expects to roll out its first North American offerings on the SoftLayer platform by the end of the year in three of Logicalis’ key go-to-market areas:
