Exeed launches HP-based cloud platform for resellers

Mycloudstore uses a HP platform that is hosted and managed in NZ, and will allow resellers to self-provision and sell cloud services for predictable revenue streams.

IT distributor Exeed has launched a web-based interface through which resellers will be able to sell cloud solutions.

Mycloudstore uses a HP platform that is hosted and managed in NZ, and will allow resellers to self-provision and sell cloud services for predictable revenue streams.

The launch follows on Westcon's pilot of a cloud platform for resellers that was announced early in July.

Exeed MD Justin Tye said, “Although an increasing number of SMBs are consuming cloud solutions, providing cloud services is a commercial challenge for smaller NZ resellers as they don’t have the scale of a large customer base to justify the cost and risks of owning and operating their own data centres”.

“This was one of the key drivers to create mycloudstore.co.nz, a marketplace portal where resellers can order and provision cloud services as well as selected hardware offerings such as mobility products and access devices designed specifically for the cloud.”

"Mycloudstore’s provisioning platform now allows resellers to sell cloud services while retaining ownership of the billing relationship with the end user customer,” he says.

Through Mycloudstore resellers can also create customised and white labelled cloud services.

At launch, Mycloudstore will offer IaaS, HP LiveVault, a managed server data protection service and Storegate, a solution to sync, share and collaborate in the cloud.

Exeed assures that more solution sets such as braodband data services for businesses, along with cloud software and security, will be made available.
