ChannelCloud’s Citrix validation boosts opportunities for channel partners to get to market quickly with a well-established, validated service provider that has a proven technical infrastructure and business approach.
ChannelCloud, a cutting edge provider of comprehensive Cloud Solutions in the UK, has announced that it has been recognised by Citrix as a Diamond Validated, White-Label Hosting Partner across EMEA. Diamond Validation is the highest standard for Citrix Service Provider partners. Citrix Diamond Validation requires that Service Provider partners meet stringent guidelines around Architecture, SLA performance and Scalability.
ChannelCloud offers a turn-key, Citrix based, Cloud solution which enables channel members to quickly go to market, with a complete Cloud offering, in their own name with self-defined margins. The ChannelCloud partner program offers the guidance, tools and training required to transition from the traditional Break/Fix and Managed Services delivery models to the more lucrative Cloud Service Provider delivery model.
Paul Byrne, CEO of ChannelCloud, commented: “Having worked towards Diamond Validation over the last 18 months, we are truly delighted that our efforts have been recognised by Citrix. Our complete Cloud Solution, coupled with our business transformation toolset for traditional IT Service Providers, has earned us many plaudits within Citrix. It was a gargantuan effort on behalf of my colleagues in getting to where we are today, so I’m also very pleased for them.
“The end result is that we are now the quickest route to market for traditional IT Service Providers wishing to deliver complete, Citrix-based, Cloud Solutions in their own name without the need for capital investment.”
Scott Swanburg, Senior Director – Service Provider Business – Citrix, said: “ChannelCloud is an excellent example of a service provider partner who researched exactly how to be successful in the hosted cloud market, built a very solid technology structure aligned with the prescriptive Citrix Reference Architecture, and chose to be forward-thinking for the benefit of their end user customers and reseller partners. The Citrix Diamond Validation status is a great achievement for ChannelCloud and a sign of their hard work for both business and technical success.”
Byrne concluded: “Citrix Diamond Validation serves to further reinforce that ChannelCloud operates in line with industry best practice. This Citrix validation will enable us to gain even more credibility and differentiate ourselves further in a sometimes crowded marketplace.”
