Exeed has announced plans to offer resellers the vGRID suite of cloud services from Waikato’s LayerX Group, as the distributor zones in on the small to medium business marketplace in New Zealand.

Headquartered at the Waikato Innovation Park in Hamilton, vGRID is a New Zealand owned and operated cloud services platform providing a range of on-demand Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to Kiwi businesses.

Services available from vGRID include everything from a single mailbox to a complex setup of virtual and dedicated servers, storage, desktops and phone systems.

All solutions are fully automated and self-service, with the vGRID service hosted in data centres located in Auckland and Hamilton.

“With both Exeed and vGRID being 100 per cent Kiwi owned and operated, there is strong alignment between the two companies,” Exeed Managing Director, Justin Tye, said.

“We see vGRID as an ideal fit to deliver cost-effective cloud services specific to the needs of New Zealand SMB companies.”

The LayerX Group develops solutions that combine locally manufactured mechatronics hardware and cloud software for business productivity improvement.

With software development, electronics manufacturing and cloud service platforms delivered from a single source, the company specialises across the Internet of Things (IoT) and other sensor-based technologies, from concept through to commercial reality.

In addition, the company provides local fully automated, zero-touch cloud infrastructure services with hourly billing granularity and self-service control panels.

“The growth strategy we have for vGRID required a change in gear, one that would expose the vGRID platform to a broader market of channel partners,” LayerX Group CEO, Bruce Trevarthen, added.

“vGRID currently has 24 channel partners across New Zealand and we expect the number to grow significantly with exposure to Exeed’s broad range of partners.

"We look forward to delivering industry-leading services to Exeed’s channel and its end customers."

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
