OneNet records “most successful” year as Kiwis embrace cloud

“In New Zealand specifically, until quite recently, one of the major barriers to adoption of cloud services was the cost and quality of connectivity."

New Zealand hosting provider OneNet has recorded the company’s “most successful year to date” during 2014, as Kiwi businesses continue to embrace the cloud.

Speaking exclusively to Reseller News, the Auckland-based company says OneNet, and its partners and clients, are reaping the benefits of cloud adoption.

“2014 has been our most successful year to date,” says Roman Paljk, General Manager, OneNet.

“This has been a combination of substantial growth in business from our ever expanding reseller and business partner channel, several large IaaS and DaaS migrations, as well as organic growth in users and usage from within our existing client base.

“We are extremely reliant on the support of our partners and without them there is no way we could reach out to such a large number of clients so we are incredibly grateful for their support.”

Paljk, now two and a half years into his role as General Manager, says that 2014 “without a doubt, exceeded expectations.”

“The team here, and our partners, have all worked tremendously hard over the past 12 months and we have been rewarded with fantastic results,” he says.

“Our clients too are reaping the benefits of moving to OneNet’s cloud services and as we grow we are able to continue to invest in people and technology that benefits all of our clients.”

With the success of 2014 still fresh in the minds, Paljk says the company’s aim now focuses on continuing to develop and expand its partner base, one that includes partnerships with Systems Integrators and software vendors is a key focus for OneNet.

Overcoming challenges…

Despite recording a bumper year, Paljk acknowledges the challenges that face cloud service providers in New Zealand today, but believes building a successful subscription revenue business is “extremely challenging anywhere in the world.”

“In New Zealand specifically, until quite recently, one of the major barriers to adoption of cloud services was the cost and quality of connectivity,” Paljk explains.

“High quality, cost effective connectivity is absolutely critical for the adoption of cloud services and thankfully this is being addressed with the rollout of fibre nationally.”

Otherwise, Paljk sees “no reason” why New Zealand based cloud providers can’t compete with global players.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
