(The Hosting News) – Managed service providers looking for robust hardware solutions for the Intel AppUpSM Small Business Service can find the answer with Brite’s (http://www.britecomputers.com) newly offered white box solutions. Brite’s offering, now available from the Intel service include two pedestal options, with a 2U rackmount server built on Intel’s Beartooth Pass server platform, complete with redundant power supplies, RAID 5 and a comprehensive three year onsite warranty.
“We are excited that Intel has chosen to work with Brite to provide a best in class Intel Xeon® based server platform to enable the Intel AppUp Small Business Service,” states Justin Smith, President & COO of Brite. “This hybrid ‘cloud’ computing solution will allow managed service providers, and other value added resellers, to provide both on-premises and off-premises computing solutions as needed to small and medium sized businesses alike on a month-to-month basis. The extreme flexibility of the Intel AppUp Small Business Service built on the Intel Hybrid Cloud platform and operating on Brite technology is something that is typically found ONLY in enterprise data centers, and that usually comes with large price tags. We are expecting, with Intel’s help, this solution to be very successful.”
The Intel Hybrid Cloud (IHC) program allows MSPs to offer customers an innovative, subscription based model of locally operating, remotely managed server software on a pay-as-you-go basis. This on-demand service gives customers access to a catalog of pre-configured business applications, which until now, were expensive to acquire and required a full-time staff to manage. Intel presented its IHC program at several Partner events including Intel Technology Conferences, and the feedback from MSPs was the desire for a more powerful server solution capable of redundancy and stable hardware. Brite developed the 2U rackmount option to its standard pedestal Intel-based server offerings in response to that need.
“The addition of new server hardware to the Intel AppUp Small Business Service from a leading hardware provider like Brite greatly expands the white box options available to MSPs directly through the Intel Hybrid Cloud program,” said Bridget Karlin, General Manager of Intel Hybrid Cloud. “For MSPs who want a self-branded server offering built on Intel Server Products, this is an ideal solution. The Intel AppUp Small Business Service gives our reseller MSPs a compelling way to deliver servers and software for their small business customers on a monthly service subscription basis without the large cash outlay that typically has caused small business customers to delay upgrades and risk hardware failures from aging servers. With the addition of Brite servers to the Intel AppUp Small Business Service catalog, MSPs now have access to a 2U rack version of the Intel Hybrid Cloud platform with redundant power and hardware RAID, as well as traditional pedestal systems featuring the latest Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 series.”
