CLEARWATER, Fla. and BATH, England, Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynstra, the pioneer in enterprise-class hybrid IT for the SMB, today announced that its Cloud Managed Server Appliances will be sold indirectly through a network of North American channel partners. Now, these partners can offer to their SMB customers enterprise-class IT without the enterprise cost, just in time for the Windows Server 2003 end-of-support deadline. In addition, they can establish recurring revenue streams earned from ongoing management and support of each Zynstra appliance.
Zynstra's first distribution partner in North America is CloudMSP. "The Zynstra hybrid IT solution enables channel partners to deliver enterprise-class IT for a simple monthly fee, with a highly cost-effective support model," said Daniel Langton, president of CloudMSP. "By adding Zynstra to our own portfolio of products, we can support MSPs as they help their SMB customers focus on running a business, rather than worrying about managing IT issues. This is especially important as support for Windows Server 2003 comes to an end."
Zynstra's Cloud Managed Server Appliances deliver the best of on-premises IT and the best of the cloud for a simple monthly fee, making it an attractive and affordable option for SMBs. Sold as a service, the management and support is fronted by Zynstra's channel partners but delivered with unprecedented levels of efficiency by Zynstra's technology. This opportunity to deliver ongoing services to customers is the source of recurring revenue — a bright spot for resellers as the channel evolves from a transactional model to an annuity model.
"Establishing a strong foothold with channel partners in North America represents an incredible opportunity to introduce Zynstra to a much broader audience. At the same time, our partners can finally reap the benefits of an annuity model from a full hybrid IT offering," said Nick East, CEO, Zynstra. "Each new relationship forged here will strengthen our reputation as a premier provider of enterprise-class IT without the enterprise cost."
