IaaS and PaaS platform innovators together enable clients to easily brand, deploy, and bill for their own suite of enterprise cloud solutions
San Francisco, CA and Channel Partners Conference (Las Vegas, NV)—March 16, 2016—OrionVM, an award-winning white-label wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, and BluLogix, a leading cloud services marketplace provider, today announced a technology partnership for the channel partner community at Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2016, taking place March 16-18 in Las Vegas, NV. The one-of-a-kind union enables clients to quickly brand and launch high-performing public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions with the ability to easily package and bill those products.
This unique and symbiotic relationship represents the best of both worlds for users. Using these platforms, resellers can capitalize on OrionVM’s disruptive wholesale business model and next-gen hyperconverged architecture to resell cloud capacity (compute, storage and networking) significantly below AWS rates – all for no upfront cost and either pay-as-you-go or an annual contract. In addition, they can rely on BluLogix’s award-winning Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution for accurate service measuring, tracking, pricing and billing. The combination enables resellers to effectively maintain backend billing processes such as order to activation, invoicing and time to market—improving revenue assurance, cost reconciliation, predictive revenue and overall cash flow.
“BluLogix is proud to partner with OrionVM, a trusted and reputable wholesale IaaS provider,” said Tim Cook, CEO at BluLogix. “This partnership represents massive opportunity and profitability for the channel. Together, we look forward to transforming operations for resellers, enabling them to see higher profits and better compete in today’s dynamic market.”
“Solution providers are frustrated with the cost and operational barriers to building their own cloud,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO. “We understand those challenges and are excited about the business outcomes and market opportunity collaborating with BluLogix creates for solution providers. Our integrated services do the heavy lifting around the complicated task of managing and billing a scalable suite of premium cloud services. Now partners can focus on core competencies and value adds with the confidence they can deliver the competitive pricing and the enterprise-class performance their end-users demand.”
One company already taking advantage of the combined approach is CloudCo Partner, Inc., a leading U.S. based 3CX hosting partner and channel provider that empowers its partners to easily and profitably resell a variety of industry-best cloud services through a proprietary consolidated services portal. CloudCo provides its partners with dedicated customer service, an innovative managed services portal, higher commission rates than industry standards and a variety of other benefits all designed to eliminate the hassle and headache of reselling cloud services so a partner can focus on sales rather than support and troubleshooting.
“We have searched tirelessly and no other cloud vendor had the combination of features, support and a business model that fit our unique requirements – right out of the box. OrionVM and BluLogix provide us a complete solution that gives us the flexibility, performance and margins needed to efficiently launch our products and services and pass all that value along to our ecosystem of channel partners. This is going to allow our channel partners to grow their sales rapidly by removing the roadblocks of billing and infrastructure so they can in turn put more focus on their customer and revenue development,” said Mike Evanisko, CTO, CloudCo.
OrionVM is a member of the AT&T Partner Exchange® reseller program, allowing them to also bundle their offerings with AT&T’s highly secure, reliable and scalable network solutions.
