Worcester, UK – 17th January 2013 - Vision Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of information availability software and services, announced it has signed with Insight UK, a division of Insight Enterprises, Inc., a global leader in IT hardware software and services, as a distributor on its Cloud Protection and Recovery (CPR) programme. With this service provider licensing agreement, Vision Solutions and Insight will support hosting providers and resellers looking to offer Cloud-based recovery and data protection solutions to their customers.
As part of its portfolio of IT hardware, software and services, Insight is an established distributor of products with licensing models designed specifically for service providers. Using Vision Solutions’ Double-Take products, Insight will help its reseller and service provider partners move customers more quickly to Cloud platforms, as well as assisting these organisations in providing business continuity and recovery solutions as part of their Cloud portfolios.
Mark Green, EMEA Director of Online & Cloud Computing at Insight said, “Insight has a long history of supplying software licensing advice and packages to the service provider community. This partnership with Vision Solutions will help our partners get customers onto their Cloud platforms faster and provide differentiated service offerings based on real-time data replication. We’re excited at the potential that we see to develop Cloud-based business continuity, availability and recovery opportunities with our service provider partners, and Vision’s Double-Take solution forms a critical part of that overall strategy.”
Ian Masters, Sales Director Northern Europe at Vision Solutions, said, “The demand for Cloud computing services is growing, but getting on to the Cloud platform of choice can be a difficult and time-consuming activity for the customer. Working with Insight, we’re helping service providers cut the time it takes to migrate customers to the Cloud, as well as enabling long-term business continuity.”
Vision Solutions’ CPR programme offers a monthly use-based licensing payment structure. As companies sell Cloud business continuity solutions to their customers, Insight and Vision Solutions only bill these service providers for the number of licenses that are consumed each month. This flexibility in licensing helps the service provider manage their internal costs as they scale up the number of customers that are supported. This approach also provides partners with long-term growth and margin development based on recurring revenues.
Double-Take Availability allows service providers to offer remote recovery services that meet even the most aggressive recovery time objectives (RTOs). Customers can have their critical applications up and running again in minutes on a Cloud platform. Double-Take Availability supports Microsoft Windows, Linux and multiple virtualisation platforms including Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware, allowing service providers to support data replication for all customer workloads running on x86 platforms.
