dinCloud has joined the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to offer dinServer, its hosted virtual server offering, to IM’s North American channel partners, including VARs and managed service providers.
“dinCloud is helping channel partners transform the way companies use the cloud,” said Renee Bergeron, vice president of managed services and cloud computing at Ingram Micro North America. “dinCloud’s server is very complementary to the hosted desktop service from dinCloud that we currently offer to our growing base of channel partners.”
In addition to hosted servers, dinCloud offers complete business provisioning in the cloud, where customer applications, desktops, servers and data are colocated in a secure, virtual private data center. This improves efficiencies, performance, and time to market, while simplifying IT infrastructure management. dinManage, a cloud orchestration and management platform, is included as a value add to to help customers control their IT infrastructure. Customers can configure, upgrade, downgrade, add or remove servers, and have command-line access.
“When we were searching for vendors to partner with, dinCloud’s user experience, quality of its infrastructure, and top notch support were the key decision drivers that made them stand out from the rest,” said Scott Schulze, director of operations and president at Fusion Technology Solutions LLC. “dinServer allows our customers to have a complete virtual private data center that includes security, firewall, and complete control over the environment, while dinManage allows us to assist our customers in the onboarding, migration, and management of their virtual co-location.”
dinServer simplifies the hosting of servers and applications with data center capabilities, including security, firewalls and management. Customers are provided with an encapsulated environment with their own firewall, private virtual servers, private virtual network and private storage (powered by NetApp) that makes up their virtual private data center. Each customer’s environment is supported with regular backups, and the hosted virtual servers have multiple layers of physical and virtual security.
