Growing Kiwi tech firm Softsource has joined an elite group of New Zealand cloud providers in working together with Microsoft to offer customers hybrid cloud and Azure-enabled solutions through a single ecosystem.

The Cloud OS Network is a worldwide group of select service providers that uniquely combine expertise in Microsoft technology, customer requirements, and Cloud OS to deliver a customised Hybrid Cloud Platform to meet individual business needs.

As a result, Softsource’s entrada Hybrid cloud solution incorporates any combination of public, private, and hosted clouds enabling businesses to mix and match platforms according to each business’ unique requirements.

“Businesses now have the flexibility to consume from multiple cloud platforms while dealing with a single partner through a single ecosystem enabling businesses access to the best of all worlds,” says Pablo Garcia-Curtis, General Manager, Softsource.

“It’s more about making use of the best technology for each business application, for example, keeping mission-critical and data intensive workloads close at hand on the local entrada platform, and Disaster Recovery on Microsoft Azure cloud.”

Garcia-Curtis says the entrada self-service provisioning and management web portal enables businesses to scale resources and cross platforms as and when required, reducing integration complexities with a unified point of billing.

“Softsource’s breadth and depth of knowledge enables insights that prove invaluable to the success of hybrid cloud deployment, meeting compliance requirements and maintaining data sovereignty, but also adding local support and advice,” he adds.

Utilising the Cloud OS Network has enabled Softsource to also work closely with Microsoft to technically validate services and enable best-practice solutions for hybrid cloud deployments including connections to Microsoft Azure public cloud.

“The combination of cloud expertise minimises risk and simplifies infrastructure upgrades, delivering a reliable solution that is flexible and easy to maintain,” adds David Small, CTO, Softsource.

“Working closely with Microsoft expert teams, Softsource have developed a fully automated on-line portal for provisioning Azure resources.

“Utilising ExpressRoute we have been able to provide our customers with a faster, private connection to Azure.”

Small says that ultimately, the entrada Hybrid cloud with Azure enables New Zealand businesses improved operational efficiency, a more cost effective solution and increased business competitiveness.
