Cloud Leverage Launches Partner Program and Extends Its Global Cloud Platform

Provides Datacenters, Hosting Companies, IT Consultants and High-Level Enterprise Cloud Consultants the Ability to Sell Cloud Acceleration, CDN, Global Load Balancing, Security and Storage Capabilities

ASHEVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - April 21, 2010) -

News Facts:

  • The Cloud Leverage Partner Program, launched today, extends an inexpensive, global entry into the cloud market to partner organizations. By utilizing Cloud Leverage's 32-node global footprint, partnering datacenters and hosting companies can quickly enter the cloud market and provide a full-array of cloud solutions to their customers. Partners can immediately offer cloud storage, content delivery acceleration, global load balancing, CDN, and global IPS firewall.

  • Cloud Leverage offers both white-label and non-branded partnering. Individual solutions, or the entire global platform, can be easily integrated with and layered on top of existing footprints and infrastructures, allowing partners to expand their portfolio of services without costly infrastructure build-outs.

  • With this program, Cloud Leverage offers an entire suite of cloud solutions to its partners at a fraction of the cost of building, orchestrating and managing such an infrastructure on their own.

  • Resellers of the Cloud Leverage global cloud platform can gain additional revenue streams for minimal investment and with very low overhead.

  • Cloud Leverage will offer three partner engagement levels:

    1. Cloud Solutions Partner: Partners at this level can build integrated relationships with individual solutions or the entire cloud suite. They will be able to expand their portfolio via Cloud Leverage's existing solutions and leverage the entire global node footprint. With optional branding fees, both white-label and non-branded partners will have "wholesale-like" pricing with which to build attractive profit margins.

    2. Private Node Partner: Under this arrangement, and unlike offerings from competitors, a partnering facility will become a private node connected to Cloud Leverage's global performance platform. This is achieved by locating a "cloud" hardware rack on the partner premises. As an enterprise-grade storage, performance, acceleration and security node, partners can choose between selling cloud services under their own brand or that of Cloud Leverage. The critical advantage gained by Private Node Partners is the ability to provide both extremely robust local performance as well as global performance through the Cloud Leverage platform.

    3. Referral Partner: By promoting Cloud Leverage, Referral Partners serving the small and medium enterprise markets stand to gain ongoing, recurring commissions for entire contract lengths of original referrals that successfully convert to clients.

  • Potential Cloud Leverage partners include: datacenters, hosting companies, SaaS providers, IT consultants, high-level enterprise cloud consultants, media platforms, telecommunications, broadcast media and others.

  • The Cloud Leverage global cloud platform is beneficial across a wide range of industries including: on-demand software (CRM, ERP, etc.), e-commerce, financial services, social media, healthcare, video security, government, publishing, media entertainment, insurance, online gaming, cloud gateway services and others.
