Distributor to Rebrand Egenera’s Xterity Cloud Services as DirectCloud, Will Leverage Egenera’s CloudMigrate℠ to Move New Customers to New Cloud Service
BOXBOROUGH, MA–(Marketwired – Apr 4, 2016) – Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services and cloud management software to the channel, today announced a significant new partnership with Direct Distribution, a leading provider of professional IT services and products.
Based in Dublin, Direct Distribution will begin marketing Egenera’s Xterity Cloud Services immediately under the name DirectCloud.
“Xterity is a superior offering to others on the market. Egenera’s long history of delivering high quality cloud services and products, along with its strong EMEA presence, make Xterity the perfect choice for us to rebrand as DirectCloud,” said Macdara Wrynne, Managing Director, Direct Distribution. “We are excited to bring new and existing cloud customers onto DirectCloud via Egenera’s new CloudMigrate service, which will enable us to move customers quickly from on-premise environments to DirectCloud, along with new customers who are using competing cloud platforms.”
Announced today, CloudMigrate, is a new migration service that will enable organizations to seamlessly transition existing cloud-based servers or on-premise servers to Egenera’s Xterity wholesale managed cloud with minimal operational interruption. CloudMigrate will also enable service providers to gain significantly higher margins, better manageability and support than large public clouds.
