TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- ConnectWise, the world's leading business management solution designed exclusively for IT service providers, VARs and MSPs, announced today it has successfully launched its African Cloud, expanding the geographic reach of its cloud platform to a fourth continent.  With an estimated one-third of its 45,000 North American, European, Australian and African users now connected to ConnectWise Cloud instead of on-premises software, the expansion assures local performance and local protection for these users.


The ConnectWise Cloud delivers all the features of the ConnectWise software, and eliminates the need for a dedicated server and management of updates. It also supports a broad range of integrated business applications that combine for the largest network of RMM and other managed services tools and support in the industry. ConnectWise Cloud is available to IT service providers, VARs and MSPs for as low as $39 USD per user per month.

"The expansion of our infrastructure to support our cloud users in Africa and across three other continents shows a commitment and dedication of our entire team to ensure that no matter where our partners are located or how they access ConnectWise – on–demand or on-premise–the result is the most robust and flexible set of tools in the industry," said ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini. "Since the development of our modern cloud-based platform, we have experienced extraordinary customer growth with 32 percent of our user base as cloud partners.  The ConnectWise Cloud is a very affordable local alternative to other cloud based solutions, offering a powerful tool without the need to sacrifice functionality."

ConnectWise has invested approximately a half-million dollars into the expanded, virtualized cloud infrastructure and related updates.  To showcase the strength and stability of its cloud offerings, the company has unveiled the ConnectWise Cloud Monitor, a publicly viewable online dashboard indicating cloud service status and performance.  Additional information about the ConnectWise Cloud is available at
