BOXBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) -Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services and cloud management software to the channel, today announced that it was named to the CRN®, 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. This annual lineup from CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, recognizes the most innovative and effective cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.
Egenera's Xterity Cloud Services deliver a full range of wholesale cloud service offerings, including dedicated compute, private, public, bare metal and cloud suite software. In addition, Egenera's channel partners can offer their clients Xterity business continuity services such as Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS). With Xterity, technology service providers can quickly enter the cloud services market with no upfront capital or ongoing maintenance or warranty costs. Unlike reselling the large public cloud services, Xterity delivers the margins and dedicated technical support needed to develop a profitable cloud services business.
"Xterity is one of the few channel-only wholesale managed cloud service offerings available today. With Xterity, our partners can quickly deliver extremely high margin, brandable cloud offerings with a fast time to revenue and no fear of channel conflict," said Pete Manca, President and CEO of Egenera. "We're extremely pleased to be named a Coolest Cloud Computing Vendor from CRN."
In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud service offerings.
"Cloud-based solutions have become an indispensable and fast-growing part of today's IT infrastructure. The demand for solution providers who can deliver these technologies and services is now higher than ever," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps solution providers find and engage with the suppliers who can best support them, either during the critical transition to the cloud or in the improvement and expansion of their existing cloud offerings."
