Service Providers Leverage CloudHealth Platform to Increase Margins, Improve Efficiency
BOSTON – March 9, 2017 – CloudHealth Technologies, the leader in cloud service management, today announced that the majority of the industry’s top next-generation managed service providers are participating in the company’s channel partner program. Furthermore, in the past year, the program has doubled in size while increasing revenue by more than 300 percent YoY. This growth reflects a broader trend within managed services, as service providers seek to capitalize on the steady acceleration of cloud adoption by providing their customers with more strategic cloud services.
“Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way managed service providers do business,” said Bob Kilbride, Director of Channel Sales at CloudHealth Technologies. “It also presents a huge opportunity, as they look to not just resell but also provide additional value-added services. Our Cloud Business Accelerator Program is laser focused on helping them take advantage of all the cloud has to offer by improving their value proposition and increasing their margins.”
CloudHealth enables managed service providers to make ongoing optimizations around cost, usage, performance and security to help their customers maximize cloud investments. With the power of the CloudHealth platform, channel partners can offer even better insight into their customers’ cloud environments, create custom bills and invoices, break down costs according to business groupings, deliver tailored optimization recommendations, and implement governance through policy management and automation.
With SMBs and enterprises rolling out new cloud initiatives, there has never been greater demand for services and solutions that ensure business success. An AWS Migration Competency solution provider, CloudHealth Technologies is seeing a dramatic increase in the platform’s Migration Assessment capabilities. The functionality simplifies and accelerates the process of migrating assets from data centers to AWS and Azure so MSPs can efficiently assess and model workloads (including TCO) for migration on behalf of their customers. The platform also enables MSP partners to meet mandatory requirements from the AWS MSP Partner Program Validation Checklist across multiple sections, including AWS Billing, Cost Management and Security. In addition, CloudHealth provides support for the company’s partners through ongoing program guidance, including cloud service runbooks, training and technical support, marketing and sales enablement, and dedicated account management.
“As our relationship with CloudHealth has deepened, the platform has become a core part of our business,” said Greg Rusu, Senior Director, Cloud Services at SHI. “CloudHealth’s policy-driven approach to cloud management, coupled with its automation capabilities, enables us to offer stronger levels of service for our customers. CloudHealth Technologies has been instrumental in our evolution as a cloud service provider.”
Leveraging CloudHealth, partners deliver significant value and forge deeper relationships with their customers by providing them with actionable insights about their cloud environments, and helping plan successful migrations. CloudHealth partner Blue Sentry, an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, has been working with partner relationship management company LogicBay since the company began migrating to the public cloud. “They helped us through the migration process immensely,” said Mike Shaughnessy, Chief Operating Officer, LogicBay. “We now use Blue Sentry to manage, service, and maintain our environment. They’re very responsive and tightly integrated with our internal team.”
As the number of participants rises, the CloudHealth Cloud Business Accelerator Program continues to build momentum, with significant global expansion anticipated throughout 2017.
