Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace Now Features dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktop
Leading Technology Vendor Announces New Distribution Alliance at Ingram Micro’s Third Annual Cloud Summit June 4-6 in Scottsdale, AZ
Los Angeles, CA, June 5, 2012 – dinCloud, a cloud transformation company that provides business provisioning of IT infrastructure to the cloud, today announced its hosted virtual desktop (HVD) is now available to channel partners in the United States via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, an online marketplace where solution providers and MSPs can shop, procure, provision and obtain invoices for their cloud services directly from Ingram Micro.
The new distribution agreement was announced by Ingram Micro North America’s vice president of managed services and cloud computing Renee Bergeron earlier this morning at the distributor’s third annual Cloud Summit (#IMCloud2012) in Scottsdale, Ariz. Under the terms of the agreement, Ingram Micro’s cloud team will actively market, sell and support dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktop to its growing base of cloud-focused channel partners.
“dinCloud is transforming the way companies use the cloud. We are thrilled to be selected by Ingram Micro as a hosted virtual desktop provider of choice. Through this new alliance, we’re offering the security, redundancy, connectivity, and cloud licensing expertise our customers have come to depend upon to an even more diverse business population,” said Kevin Schatzle, president of dinCloud.
“Ingram Micro has a proven track record for successfully enabling our channel partners to sell and support cloud-based services and solutions, and we’re pleased to now offer dinCloud’s hosted virtual desktops,” says Bergeron. “The 2012 Cloud Summit is a business-minded event that empowers channel organizations to define and refine their cloud strategy while accessing proven business practices that drive advanced sales and marketing efforts and increased profitability.”
“Desktop virtualization is an enabler for people-centric application and data delivery, and it offers improved security, operational efficiency and business continuity. Small and medium businesses are looking to their trusted advisors to help them transition to more efficient approaches of delivering applications and data to people instead of devices,” said Tiffani Bova, vice president, Gartner.
dinCloud’s HVD, sometimes referred to as desktop as a service (DaaS), is a channel-facing service now available to Ingram Micro’s channel including MSPs, solution providers and IT cloud integrators.
