MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ormuco has launched a global channel partner program for its Ormuco Stack cloud software. The channel program features program elements designed to support cloud and managed service providers (CSPs and MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs) and independent software vendors (ISVs). The Ormuco Channel Partner Program includes features designed to support these partners with an affordable, reliable and interoperable cloud option that is consistent across both on-premises and off-premises deployments, one that can be deployed quickly and operated with support from Ormuco and major hardware vendors like HPE.
The Ormuco Channel Partner Program is offered in response to demand from CSPs, MSPs, VARs and ISVs to offer Ormuco Stack as part of their cloud service delivery models. The global program enables partners to leverage Ormuco Stack to offer new cloud services and solutions, increase margins, enhance profitability and significantly reduce customer total cost of ownership (TCO) when compared to reselling public cloud options. In addition, Ormuco partners are able to offer their customers an ability to burst workloads seamlessly from Ormuco Stack clouds to the HPE-sponsored Cloud28+ community of managed clouds when workloads demand it, without having to worry about complex integrations.
Ormuco’s launch partner for the program is International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. (IIS). Based in Plainview, New York, IIS is one of the largest IT solutions providers in North America. They were named HPE’s Global Partner of the Year in 2016 and consistently are ranked among the most widely recognized solutions providers in the industry.
Ormuco Stack is a full-featured, turnkey cloud platform built on open source OpenStack cloud software. It works seamlessly across private, public and hybrid environments, offering a simple, cost-effective way to manage workloads while addressing performance, security and compliance.
