VIP Computers is taking its first steps into cloud computing through an exclusive agreement with online storage provider Livedrive.

Livedrive allows users to access files and media from anywhere, using militarygrade encryption to keep data secure.

According to VIP, the product provides resellers with healthy margins and add-on opportunities with the sale of hardware. “When you look at its product offering, the list is extensive and currently unchallenged within the channel. If you sign-up to Livedrive, you are privy to unlimited storage space and bandwidth, even with its basic ‘Backup’ package,” said VIP product manager Mark Lynch.

Dominic Cross, sales director at Livedrive, added: “We are extremely excited about our distribution agreement with VIP Computers. Resellers across the UK have been calling out for a boxed version of our product for a long time – we know there’s a huge market out there for it.”
