Blizzard 2010: Where’s The VAR Guy?
Today’s forecast on Long Island’s Gold Coast calls for blizzard conditions and 10 to 16 inches of snow. So how does The VAR Guy (allegedly a Long Island resident) plan to stay warm and stay online — especially during today’s MSPmentor 100 webcast? The simple answer: Hide in a local Network Operation Center (NOC), maintained by one of the fastest-growing solutions providers in North America. Here are the details.
The VAR Guy needs to personally thank BlueWater Communications Group for their hospitality. The fast-growing Cisco partner opened its doors when our resident blogger came calling for guaranteed bandwidth, electricity and heat. As you may recall, BlueWater recently launched BLUE — a managed service for major customers across the New York area.
BlueWater CEO Bob Cagnazzi described the BLUE strategy in this recent FastChat video:
Thanks again, BlueWater. The VAR Guy appreciates the heat — and the broadband.
