LevelCloud Leverages OS33 for Managed Services, Cloud Moves

LevelCloud, a Corona, Calif.-based cloud and managed services company, has embraced OS33 as its platform for IT automation. LevelCloud has branded its services as "IT Anytime, Anywhere." Here's some background on the strategy.

"Infrastructure is becoming a commodity," said LevelCloud President & CEO Biren Shukla. "So it made sense to choose a partner. Our number one goal was to find a partner with our same vision." LevelCloud contemplated waiting for Citrix Systems to come out with the Citrix Open Cloud infrastructure . Then Shukla said he learned about OS33 through an article on MSPmentor. "OS33 has been doing this for a while," he said. "And their system is browser-based. How simple can it get?"

"LevelCloud is a very strong partner. They're very aggressive," said OS33 President Jacob Kazakevich. "They're a great example for other MSPs." OS33 has been in steady partnering mode recently. Kazakevich said that OS33 is closing multiple partnerships per month. LevelCloud is a unique partnership, Kazakevich says, because they're extremely positive and ambitious. OS33 will supply LevelCloud with services like infrastructure and desktop as a service.

OS33's global focus was also appealing to LevelCloud. "Hands down OS33 has the right approach. They have global ambitions just like we do," he said while noting that LevelCloud can service any company from anywhere.

LevelCloud has been attacking cloud solutions in full force. The company holds monthly webinars to show clients how to use the cloud, and Shukla himself attends technology trade shows to promote its cloud vision. LevelCloud is migrating numerous CPA firms and other 100+ user organizations to the cloud, regardless of  which applications they're using.

"LevelCloud doesn't care which application you use," said Shukla. "Bring it in and we'll integrate it. We don't want you to change how you do business. We just want to give you a platform to do it."
