(The Hosting News) – Two leading cloud computing service providers have combined their resources to offer an increased level of hosted virtual desktops and cloud computing solutions to businesses throughout North America.
Voyss Solutions, headquartered in Winston-Salem, NC, and ThinkGrid, with headquarters in the UK, have formed a strategic partnership that will provide cloud computing services to businesses in North America. In addition, the two partner organizations are able to offer enterprise-level solutions to small/medium size businesses, without the enterprise-level investment.
The alliance, which became official on August 1, 2010, brings the best of each of the companies together to form a robust model for enterprise-level cloud services. Overlapping infrastructures and expanded product/services mixes ensure the highest level of service across all platforms.
Each company also brings longevity to the market, established leadership, professional staffing, and years of technology and businesses experience.
“Many businesses today want more choice and flexibility around IT and cloud computing delivers on this. These customers are also asking themselves why they should continue with the status quo, making upfront capital expenditure investments and carrying all the risks associated with large-scale IT implementations,” said Rob Lovell, CEO at ThinkGrid. “We therefore created a cloud platform that allows our partners to help their customers eliminate these risks. As a result, we have been able to build greater trust in this new computing model. The alliance with Voyss Solutions will further demonstrate the huge savings and management benefits of IT services delivered from the cloud.”
Voyss Solutions will expand the sales and customer relations responsibilities through its channel partners and direct relationships. “This partnership increases our delivery capabilities and allows us to serve businesses across North America.” noted Perry Swaim, Voyss Solutions CEO/President. “Voyss Solutions has been a strong regional player with national distribution; this alliance now expands our presence as a global player with international distribution.”
