SHREWSBURY, NJ--(Marketwired - Jul 12, 2016) - Lifeboat Distribution (NASDAQ: WSTG), an international specialty distributor for security, virtualization, network infrastructure, and other technically sophisticated products, today announced a distribution agreement with Green Cloud Technology. Beginning in early July, Lifeboat will distribute Green Cloud Technology's backup solution product lines to its network of resellers, VARs and systems integrators in the United States.
Built on Veeam's Cloud Connect platform, Green Cloud's backup solution provides affordable and remote cloud-based storage for existing server infrastructures. The solution can be installed as a primary backup solution or used as an additional or replacement backup repository, without the cost of managing a second site.
"Green Cloud is pleased to join forces with Lifeboat Distribution. Our channel-only approach to cloud services is ideally suited to Lifeboat's strong network of VARs," said Brett Lieblich, Channel Director at Green Cloud Technologies. "Lifeboat's demonstrated expertise with the Veeam solution will strengthen our reseller-distributor-vendor bond, and we align perfectly in our respective partner-centric approaches."
"We're excited that Green Cloud has selected Lifeboat to distribute their products in North America. Green Cloud's solutions complement many technologies we already offer to our partners and are easily deployable," said Brian Gilbertson, Vice President and General Manager at Lifeboat Distribution. "Our agreement with Green Cloud will enable Veeam partners to provide best in class remote cloud-based storage and generate highly profitable, recurring revenue."
