Tarrytown, NY – March 11, 2015 – WestconGroup, the leading value-added global distributor of security, unified communications, network infrastructure and data center solutions, today announced its Comstor business practice is further growing its Cisco powered cloud ecosystem in a new agreement with Atlanta headquartered Cirrity. The alliance now gives North American resellers access to a premier suite of white-labelled and channel-only, secure, and compliant cloud-based solutions.
Industry analysts estimate the market for cloud-driven services will top $200 billion before 2020, driven by the flexibility, ease-of-use and expanded market penetration the technology offers. Today’s alliance further expands Comstor’s universe of next-generation services, built on top of the award-winning Cisco platform. Resellers are now empowered to sell Comstor’s expanded portfolio of white-labelled services on top of the Cirrity platform – including Infrastructure as a Service, Disaster Recovery as a Service, Backup as a Service and Desktop as a Service.
“As more resellers look to tap into the power of cloud, what’s necessary is a partner that can help create a faster path-to-market for these emerging solution practices,” said Geoff Fancher, SVP of Comstor in the US, WestconGroup. “During the past year, Comstor has made significant strides expanding our ecosystem of cloud partners. The addition of Cirrity is a critical step as we enable partners to channel even greater revenues based on the next-generation technology.”
Cirrity’s cloud solutions are all Cisco powered and will help partners transform their business through secure and fully-compliant cloud solutions. The highly scalable and geographically redundant Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform is designed to accelerate market presence of managed service providers (MSPs), Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and service providers – allowing for creation of broad-based add-on services.
“At Cirrity, our only focus is delivering ‘as-a-service’ offerings for the channel. Our technology is specifically designed to help VARs and service providers incorporate cloud services into their business — without the high cost of building and managing their own infrastructure,” said Dan Timko, President of Cirrity. “WestconGroup is a company that truly ‘gets’ cloud and understands how to best put it to use for partners. Today’s agreement now gives a broader range of resellers and service providers access to our premier platform, backed by the power of WestconGroup.”
