ePlus Announces Cloud Aggregated Services
Cloud ‘As a Service’ Model Empowers Customers to Simplify IT Deployment, Reduce Time to Market, Mitigate Risks, and Drive Business Outcomes
HERNDON, VA – October 18, 2016
– A new suite of cloud services from ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUS
) addresses changing market trends in customer experience and engagement models. ePlus Cloud Aggregated Services is ideal for customers implementing a cloud-first strategy or seeking to simplify their IT deployments and mitigate risk. The services target key cloud focus areas including strategic assessments, cloud infrastructure, service-provider connectivity, co-location, and interconnection as well as cloud collaboration.
“Information Technology professionals must assume their new role as innovation brokers and quickly seek ways to proactively improve productivity and engagement, lower costs, and accelerate strategic business initiatives,” said Scott Gilgallon, ePlus cloud solution director. “ePlus Cloud Aggregated Services offers clients a single trusted resource, cloud expertise, and first-hand knowledge across hundreds of industry providers to carefully assess, select, and implement cloud solutions quickly.”
Strategic assessment is a key pillar of the new offering. ePlus Cloud Assessments help clients evaluate which cloud models (private, hybrid, and/or public) are best suited for their specific applications or workloads, and then map, monitor, and identify network-connectivity-dependent workloads for proper migration planning. The assessments also provide a comprehensive roadmap for future expansion and utilization.
“Cloud adoption is accelerating and changing the very essence of information technology,” said Mike Trojecki, ePlus vice president of Business Transformation. “Large enterprises are viewing their IT infrastructures less as data centers, but ‘centers of data’, where applications may be physical, SAAS, or containerized and on platforms which are private, public, or hybrid. The delivery mechanism has become a lower priority than achieving the desired business outcome, scalable capacity, robust performance, reduced costs, and mitigating risk. Forward-thinking CIOs recognize these trends and ePlus Cloud Aggregated Services offer the best path forward.”
In addition to assessments, ePlus Cloud Aggregated Services offer enterprise options in four strategic service areas including:
- Cloud infrastructure - Infrastructure as a Service, Backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service, cloud storage, and hosted security
- Co-location and interconnection - Co-location and specialized cloud-connected co-location services in more than 1,200 centers
- Connectivity optimization - Competitive Internet, voice, data, and conferencing
- Cloud collaboration - Managed Office 365, Hosted Microsoft Exchange, Desktop as a Service, and Hosted VoIP
“ePlus Cloud Aggregated Services simplify IT management, drive IT governance and compliance, and help our clients innovate quickly,” said Kevin Detsch, ePlus senior vice president of Business Development. "Our assessment-led methodology lets clients rapidly implement these solutions. This simplified and efficient model can enable organizations to reduce time to benefit, lower costs, and improve their overall competitiveness.”
