New Partnership with “Cloud-First” Distributor to Address Increasing Demand for Cloud Security, Management and Control Solutions Across UK Businesses

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and READING, United Kingdom, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Webscale, the E-Commerce Cloud Company, has announced its partnership with Cloud Distribution, the UK’s Cloud First Next Generation value-added distributor specializing in security, networking and storage. The appointment allows Webscale to address the strong demand Cloud Distribution is seeing, through its reseller network and across e-commerce and enterprise businesses in the UK, for SaaS-based cloud native technologies that enable the rapid adoption of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

With its myriad of benefits, from infinite capacity and scalability to its cost advantages and simplicity, businesses around the world are looking to move to the cloud. This shift is creating a critical need for expertise in the migration and hosting of applications in the cloud, as well as cloud-agnostic management solutions that deliver must-have features such as 100% uptime, robust security and high performance. Webscale has a range of multi-cloud-ready plans and services that address these requirements and sought a partner in the UK that shared its vision. With the migration of workloads to the cloud increasing in momentum, Cloud Distribution, and its extensive reseller network, is ideally positioned to service businesses that want to realize the competitive advantages of the cloud but need a trusted partner to help guide their digital transformation journey.

“Cloud Distribution, as a ‘Cloud First’ value added distributor, truly understands how to drive innovative and disruptive cloud-native technologies to the local market in the UK,” said Michael Guglielmi, vice president of channel and business development, Webscale. “In the last six months, Webscale has seen more than 50% of its revenues shift to the channel as the company rapidly adopts a partner-focused strategy, aligning with distributors, resellers, digital design agencies and developers. With this latest appointment, Webscale now has a strong presence in Europe and we look forward to building this business with Cloud Distribution.”

“With Gartner predicting that multi-cloud deployments will be the strategy of choice for 70% of enterprises by 2019, we are anticipating high demand for cloud-agnostic management and control solutions this year,” said Grant Reddin, director of Datacenter Solutions, Cloud Distribution. “Webscale’s SaaS solutions are a perfect fit, and we look forward to working with them to grow their business in the UK.”
