D&H To Offer Cloud Solutions Powered By “Cloud Nation” Platform
HARRISBURG, Pa., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Leading North American computer products distributor D&H Distributing announces it has entered a strategic partnership with Cloud Nation, an innovative new Cloud Services Aggregator. Cloud Nation offers a cloud solutions platform and community portal that delivers a comprehensive roster of training, services and technologies to help SMB resellers sell cloud-based infrastructures. These include:
- Initial “Cloud Essentials” training and certification
- Access to additional, advanced training/certification
- Access to a Cloud Solutions Platform, offering amenities such as virtual desktops and servers, turn-key cloud-based infrastructure solutions and ongoing managed services
- Access to the Cloud Nation Community Portal containing peer advice, news, product information and support
- Ongoing sales and marketing support
- Multi-tiered billing options
Many aspects of virtual solutions sales–e.g., managing multiple vendors, developing a unified billing platform, identifying products, deploying virtual solutions–are prohibitive to the typical independent reseller. Cloud Nation is designed to aggregate these services for its member VARs.
“Independent resellers are hungry to start making money in the cloud,” said Jeff Davis, senior vice president of sales at D&H Distributing. “Yet there is a certain amount of complexity in offering these virtualized solutions that puts it beyond the means of the average small business VAR. Cloud Nation delivers comprehensive resources, filling in the knowledge or technology gaps that might hinder an independent reseller from thriving in this category.”
Membership to Cloud Nation will require resellers to complete the Company’s Cloud Essentials training and become “CNCPs” (Cloud Nation Certified Professionals). Member VARs will be able to sell cloud-based technologies from top vendors such as Microsoft, Citrix and Adobe through Cloud Nation, including virtual desktops and servers, to be offered to end-customers under the VAR’s own brand.
