DENVER, CO–(Marketwire – Feb 26, 2013) – PeakColo, a leading enterprise-class IaaS Cloud service provider for channel partners, yesterday announced that it is participating in the new VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program. This dynamic program provides channel partners an easy on-ramp to PeakColo’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform, along with secure and direct access to on-demand cloud services in the US and UK. PeakColo is participating in this program because it is a 100% channel-centric cloud provider. Early January, PeakColo announced the addition of Ms. Sharon Kincl as Vice President of Finance and Administration.
Recently launched at VMware Partner Exchange 2013 in Las Vegas, the VMware Cloud Credit Purchasing Program offers Solution Providers a new route to market by selling prepaid credits to be used for subscription-based hybrid or public cloud services offered by approved VMware Service Provider Partners. This program enables approved Service Providers to extend the full benefits of cloud computing to their end-users including flexible IT options, reduced IT capital expenditures and improved business agility.
As one of the only IaaS providers with a 100% channel centric model, PeakColo offers channel partners enterprise-class cloud services with complete training, on-boarding, and competitive commission programs — all bundled within a turn-key white label program.
“The VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program brings the Solution Provider and Service Provider communities together, to create a unique value proposition for both,” states Geoff Waters, senior director, VMware Cloud Service Provider Program. “We are pleased to have PeakColo participating in the VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program, and we look forward to their continued success.”
“PeakColo’s VMware vCloud®-Powered platform enables our channel partners to white label the cloud as their own, offering their clients on-demand services and a secure way to leverage the efficiencies and benefits of cloud computing,” states Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of PeakColo. “The new VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program helps us work with solution providers to deliver robust cloud computing services.”
With PeakColo’s IaaS platform located in premium data centers across the US and Europe, agents, value-added resellers and system integrators can establish direct connections into one of the fastest clouds in the marketplace in order to build their cloud practice, increase revenue streams and strengthen customer relationships.
As a long-time VMworld® partner, Mr. Norris was a distinguished presenter at both VMworld Barcelona and VMworld San Francisco in 2012, discussing ‘How to Transform Your Business with an Agile Data Infrastructure’ and ways to integrate VMware vCloud® Suite with NetApp’s Clustered dataONTAP. Over the last two years PeakColo has experienced 300% growth.
PeakColo is an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud service provider to channel partners. White-labeling PeakColo’s cloud services as their own, resellers and agents rapidly enter the cloud marketplace under their own brand without capital expenditure, enjoying a faster route to profitability. With Type II SSAE 16 and SOC 2 compliant data centers in six geographies across the United States and in Europe (Seattle, Denver, Chicago, New Jersey, New York, and the United Kingdom), PeakColo offers a cloud environment that contains tens of thousands of virtual machines and multiple petabytes of storage for public, private, hybrid and disaster recovery solutions.
