Managed Service Provider Week in Review

By Laura Stotler

This week brought a slew of announcements on the cloud infrastructure front as the top players rev up competition and vie for marketshare. All of that translates to more choice for managed service providers along with increased partnership opportunities and additional revenue channels.

Corent Technology is pretty much right in the middle of the cloud infrastructure to MSP delivery chain and the company provides the SurPaaS cloud enablement technology platform. Corent announced this week that it’s joining IBM’s brand new Cloud Marketplace, offering IBM customers and partners a way to speed up software migration to SaaS by using their solution.

Ensim Corporation is also in the business of helping MSPs deal with cloud infrastructure, and the company announced its Ensim IaaS Manager 3.0 for VMware solution this week. The offering enables service providers to manage multiple deployments, services and infrastructures from a single platform. It works with the Ensim Automation Suite to provide an end-to-end managed cloud offering.

Location is integral in the managed services and cloud computing space, and MSP Codero Hosting understands this. The company opened a new Tier 3 data center in Dallas-Fort Worth, the fourth facility for the company. The new data center is located within the 70-acre Digital Dallas Data Campus, giving the company a flagship presence in the Southwest region with access to a large number of carriers and aggregators. The facility offers access to Codero’s cloud, dedicated and on-demand hybrid cloud offerings.

With complicated cloud deployments comes the task of managing an increasing number of devices. Absolute Software Corporation announced a tool to help MSPs and others deal with just that this week, with its new Absolute Service 8.1 service desk solution. The offering helps service providers manage computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones while also bolstering endpoint security.

In a testament to how well the North American managed services market is doing, Italian cloud Wi-Fi company Cloud4Wi has established new headquarters in San Francisco. The company has also expanded its MSP program to the region, giving service providers access to its managed, cloud-based Wi-Fi marketplace and associated apps.
