ZeroStack, a cloud infrastructure provider, today announced that it has partnered with T5 Data Centers and Colovore, representing managed service providers (MSPs) and colocation service providers that will host individual ZeroStack Z-Block Cloud Appliances for each customer who wants the benefits of private cloud but doesn’t want to host them on-premises.
ZeroStack claims to offer a hyper-converged cloud appliance and integrated, web-based software that can be consumed like a public cloud. This platform opens up new revenue opportunities for regional service providers that want to offer the convenience and added security features of a hosted self-serve private cloud. With deployments by T5 in its Los Angeles data center and in Colovore’s high-density Santa Clara facility, ZeroStack customers can seamlessly and time-efficiently migrate public or on-premise workloads into colocation environments.
Andrew Reichman, research director at 451 Research, said:
451 Research recently completed a study of enterprises using cloud technology and found that 62% of the responding organizations have integrated multiple cloud venues. Solutions like ZeroStack’s cloud platforms make it easier for service providers, integrators and end users alike to tackle the complexity of cloud solutions, reduce the time and risk of solution implementation and ultimately drive better results.
Sean Cardenas, VP – Sales at ZeroStack, commented:
Colocation solves a lot of management headaches for many enterprises, but MSPs need a robust cloud platform that’s easy to integrate into their data centers. ZeroStack’s Cloud Platform is the easiest path to hosted and private cloud for regional MSPs and hosting providers who want to offer those services.
