UK reseller-only Cloud Services Provider (CSP) Giacom has announced the launch of its newest product, Cloud Server.
Powered by Azure, Cloud Server is a simple out-of-the-box replacement for an on-premises end of life server.
The cloud services market has grown rapidly over recent years and is projected to grow exponentially through to 2022. Yet, the complexity and pay-as-you-go pricing models of Azure can be a steep learning curve for IT companies supporting small businesses. The launch of Cloud Server, exclusive to Giacom, sets out to overcome these barriers by offering a simple, fixed cost server solution hosted in the cloud.
Whether you’re an Azure newcomer or expert, selling physical servers or building replacements directly in Azure, Cloud Server can be provisioned quickly and easily through Giacom’s cloud.market. The solution removes the complexity of the service to support businesses in a simpler way, while also providing the security, flexibility and reliability of a Microsoft product.
For IT companies supporting SMBs who want to future-proof their businesses in the cloud and replace outdated, on-site servers – like Windows Server 2008/R2 that’s due to go end of life in January – Cloud Server includes everything required to go to market quickly and easily, saving valuable time and effort. Offering additions of VPN and Backup, Cloud Server ensures guaranteed uptime and data replication, all for a fixed cost. And just like an on-premises server, resellers can generate healthy, predictable and recurring margins by charging an install and ongoing maintenance fee.
Steve Law, CTO at Giacom, commented: “While Cloud adoption is increasing at an impressive rate, the pricing structures and technical configurations can present significant challenges for IT resellers – but that needn’t be the case. Cloud Server provides quick, simple provisioning, predictable costs, secure data storage and BCDR, so it’s easily scalable to suit customer requirements.”
