CoreVault Taps the Channel for its vCloud Hosting Service
The VAR Guy has stumbled across cloud company CoreVault, which is launching a new vCloud powered hosting platform that looks to consolidate data backup and protection with data security while also virtualizing an IT environment. Our resident blogger thinks if you’re an SMB looking for virtualized infrastructure and cloud storage needs, or if you’re a VAR looking to resell that kind of technology, CoreVault may be worth a look. Here’s the lowdown …
Starting now, CoreVault is offering VMware vCloud Powered Hosting service. CoreVault’s plan is to build on its own data protection prowess while leveraging VMware’s technology in the cloud, and then bundle it all together into one neat package. But CloudVault is also promising users can have more control over the security of their information with its solution than other cloud offerings, due in part to the VMware vCloud feature-set, and the peace of mind CoreVault promises, since it backs up all users’ data to CoreVault’s own dedicated virtual servers, including information from users’ existing data centers. The VAR Guy likes the two-pronged approach.
CoreVault says its leg-up on the competition includes a focus on high performance that scales easily, while also providing maximum security, with remote access. VMware’s vCloud Director is being used to help manage a multitude of different clouds and cloud needs, while also helping customers maintain compliance requirements, be it HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley or whatever.
CoreVault also offers cloud packages for both the individual user as well as the enterprise, so interested parties might want to take a little deep dive here and check them out.
Meanwhile, CoreVault is on the hunt for channel partners. The company boasts “aggressive” commission with “generous” reoccurring revenue possibilities. The VAR Guy knows selling and hosting vCloud services can be a burden, so if you’re looking to ride the cloud wave without the hardware investment, CoreVault could be a good fit. The VAR Guy will be checking in with CoreVault shortly to get a breakdown on its channel program.
