Allows AWS Managed Service Providers to offer differentiation and improve margins with cost-effective DRaaS, migration, cloudbursting, and billing for AWS infrastructure
Los Angeles, CA and Burlington, MA (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
Orbitera Inc., the leader in Cloud Commerce, and Unitrends, a leader in enterprise-level cloud recovery, today announced a joint partnership to provide Amazon Web Services (AWS) Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with a comprehensive solution for building and growing their AWS-hosted business.
The Orbitera Cloud Commerce Platform streamlines MSPs’ ability to sell, deliver and manage infrastructure and software in the cloud. Orbitera’s platform is paired with Unitrends Boomerang™, a radically easy-to-use and cost-effective virtual appliance for replicating VMware virtual machines (VMs) to the AWS cloud for low-cost backup and disaster recovery. The resulting offering will enable AWS MSPs to provide differentiation and maintain margin with DRaaS, migration, cloudbursting, and billing for AWS infrastructure.
According to Gartner, the public cloud market is expected to reach $89 billion this year, with backup and DRaaS being among the most frequently requested solutions. Many enterprises interested in deploying such solutions prefer MSPs and channel partners as their primary source of delivery, which provides a tremendous opportunity for MSPs.
“The combination of Orbitera and Unitrends Boomerang is a perfect solution for MSPs building their AWS business,” said Mark Campbell, CTO at Unitrends. “Orbitera delivers a complete cloud marketplace for managing the business, while Boomerang provides cost-effective software for DRaaS, migration, and cloudbursting with VMware.”
IT managers looking to cut costs by eliminating a second data center or by taming virtual machine sprawl will significantly benefit from using the Orbitera Cloud Commerce Platform in conjunction with Unitrends Boomerang. AWS MSPs, in turn, can leverage the Orbitera platform to simplify billing and invoicing, manage cloud infrastructure spend, create custom price books, bundle software and services, and manage support plans, while optimizing their data management and protection procedures with Unitrends Boomerang.
“Backup and disaster recovery in the cloud are top imperatives for enterprises today. Our partnership with Unitrends will enable us to not only address the needs of IT organizations, but help MSPs deliver a leading solution technically and operationally,” said Marcin Kurc, CEO of Orbitera. “We understand the challenges associated with building and scaling new opportunities in the cloud and are committed to helping MSPs remain at the forefront of delivering such critical cloud management solutions.”
The Orbitera Cloud Commerce Platform with Unitrends Boomerang is available immediately.
