CloudShare Announces Industry's First Cloud-Centric Affiliate Program

New Program Lets Websites Offer Pre-Configured IT Environments On-Demand -- No Coding Required

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) -  CloudShare today launched a new affiliate program for corporate and individual web site owners looking to take advantage of a booming SaaS and cloud computing market. With this announcement, CloudShare introduces the industry's first cloud computing-centric affiliate program, enabling web sites to not only offer, but be directly rewarded for offering pre-configured IT environments on-demand to end users, no coding required.

"CloudShare's ability to let our visitors 'Try IT Now' is an obvious complement to any site related to the software business, and having CloudShare rewarding us for offering access to the system seems almost backward," said Christophe Primault, co-founder of, a leading portal for business software. "The technology allows our customers instant access to customized on-demand demo and trial environments, improving the selection process for businesses and sales velocity for software vendors."

CloudShare is already in use by Fortune 500 software sales engineers, IT professionals and enterprise teams for sales demos, POCs, training and other situations that use IT as a Service (ITaS) to provide end-users with instant hands-on access to technology.

CloudShare Pro, announced today, extends this ability to provide replicated infrastructure on-demand to individuals, teams, and the small and medium sized business (SMB) market, making the platform available in a "point and click" form for use in a variety of scenarios -- from presales to prototyping, testing, support, outsourcing and more.

Would-be affiliates can now sign up on the CloudShare website to receive a tiny web page snippet that allows them to refer potential users to CloudShare Pro and be rewarded accordingly.

"CloudShare is about enabling business via the cloud in a straightforward way, and the launch of a formal affiliate program is consistent with that goal of making things easier for end-users," said Zvi Guterman, CEO of CloudShare. "Sales Acceleration is a universal challenge for the industry; correspondingly, we'd like to offer our solution universally to the benefits of customers and vendors alike."
