VeloCloud Networks announced the VeloCloud Partner Program, enabling VARS and MSPs to provide enterprise-grade cloud networking services to their customers. More than 30 partners globally already have joined the program, which is aimed at enabling resellers to rapidly deploy new hybrid branch WANs, networking capabilities and managed services to mid-sized and large enterprises.
The VeloCloud service was designed to solve application performance and networking problems faced by branch offices, simplify both branch deployment and ongoing management, and provide IT with greater WAN visibility and cloud-scale analytics. “Our Cloud-Delivered WAN services represent not just a technology innovation, but also a business model innovation,” said Sanjay Uppal, co-founder and CEO of VeloCloud. “Our services provide a new opportunity for VARs to deliver managed services to their customers.”
The VeloCloud Partner Program is characterized by multiple tiers based on varying certification requirements. It includes an annuity-based recurring revenue stream, zero inventory requirements, a cloud-based platform that enables the addition of new services, and a training and support infrastructure to assist partners in delivering enterprise WAN solutions. It also offers partners a portal featuring a multi-tenant dashboard so partners can monitor, control and troubleshoot all of their end-customer networks. End customers grant granular role-based access to their partner or MSP, based on the monitoring and configuration services they would like to receive.
VeloCloud’s virtual service delivery platform enables partners and MSPs to provide new revenue-generating value-added services quickly and without truck rolls, said the company.
