Synaxon form partnership for cloud-based services with Exponential-e
Exponential-e to provide Synaxon members with easy access to cloud, internet and voice services
Warrington, 19 October 2015 – Syanxon UK has teamed-up with British cloud and networking provider, Exponential-e, to give its members access to a comprehensive range of cloud-based IT services.
Exponential-e works with managed services providers as well as value-added resellers and system integrators, providing highly resilient internet, combined with a secure private cloud and critical business applications that sit on the local area network, on the clean side of the firewall. The partnership will enable Synaxon members to fast track their engagement with Exponential-e and take advantage of its comprehensive range of cloud services and advanced connectivity and communications solutions.
As it has its own carrier-class fibre network with a 100Gigabit Ethernet core, Exponential-e has full control over connections between its customers and data centres. It offers virtual data centres and private, wide-area network solutions, as well as desktop-as-service (DaaS), infrastructure-as-service (IaaS), online backup, business continuity and disaster recovery services. All services are delivered down a single piece of fibre so turning services on-and-off, or scaling them, is simple and practically instantaneous, ensuring that partners and customers have more flexible, agile systems and networks.
Derek Jones, Managing Director of Synaxon states: “We see this as a landmark agreement for Synaxon and one that underlines our commitment to helping our resellers to take their business in new directions. We have been championing managed services through our partnerships with Autotask, MAXfocus (formerly GFIMAX) and Webroot. This agreement takes us onto another level by making a tried and tested suite of cloud services that are underpinned by world-class connectivity available to members and giving them the opportunity to accelerate the transition of their business.
“While the move to the cloud is an evolution, not a revolution and it’s clear that hybrid is the future and customers will expect their trusted suppliers to offer dependable cloud services and remote managed services. Working with Exponential-e will make it much easier for our members to move in that direction and make these services part of their core value proposition.”
Michala Hart, Head of Channel Strategy for Exponential-e, adds: “We are always looking to build new partnerships with resellers and MSPs that are looking to provide cloud services and meet end-user concerns over the security and privacy of their data. By changing the way Cloud services are accessed over the corporate network, we ensure that data is never sent over the public internet and can side-step the issues that come with traditional cloud models. By adopting this approach, our network and services ensure that organisations are able to use the power of the cloud to build an IT estate with the flexibility, scalability and dynamic agility needed to compete in fast-moving globalised markets.”
Synaxon members will now be able to engage with Exponential-e and enrol on its partner programmes for VARs, MSPS or integrators, through their Synaxon account team. Resellers can find out more by calling on 0844 481 5844 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
