GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- US Signal, a network and cloud hosting provider, announced a strategic alliance with cloud software innovator, itopia. The relationship provides Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with a reliable experience through itopia's Cielo software platform, an end-to-end cloud workspace engine hosted in the US Signal cloud. The intuitive platform automatically discovers all components of an on-premises IT environment, and then provisions and migrates them to the cloud ten times faster than traditional approaches and at a much lower price point.
"US Signal and itopia are making it easier for MSPs to access the right technologies and alleviate the cost for the high-level engineers necessary to maintain a cloud infrastructure of their own," said Jon Bruckbauer, vice president of national cloud sales at US Signal.
Itopia's Cielo platform standardizes customers' applications, desktops and security into a single interface that can be accessed from anywhere and any device.
"Businesses of all sizes are looking to move their on-premises infrastructure, applications and workspaces into the cloud to reduce capital IT costs and increase their operational efficiencies," said Scott Markley, executive vice president of sales at itopia. "Together with US Signal we are delivering a fully managed cloud environment and intuitive interface, making it easier and more profitable for MSPs to migrate customers to the cloud and establish a cloud-enabled infrastructure that businesses can build on."
