OzHosting is leader in Australia’s cloud hosting market, announced that it will be the first cloud hosting provider to market, sell and support Google Apps for business for small and medium businesses (SMBs) in Australia and New Zealand. With this new offering, OzHosting.com provides channel partners and SMBs with a reliable and affordable single-source way to attain a competitive advantage using cloud-based services. Therefore they can be able to select all business applications from a single vendor. Through Parallels Automation, and Parallels Application Packaging Standard, OzHosting has configured Google Apps for seamless integration into cloud delivery systems.
According to press release, Anthony Banek, CEO for OzHosting.com, believes that SMBs recognize the competitive advantage of cloud based business applications, but are reluctant to jump in where management of multi-party solutions exist as these are a distraction to their core capability. “Our channel partners now have a unique advantage of not only being able to offer multiple products to their customers through a single platform, but also having a consistent billing and discount structure through one provider,” Anthony Banek, CEO for OzHosting said in a statement.
“The flexibility of the cloud also brings with it the responsibility of managing complex systems, usually through a variety of providers. This is an additional complexity few companies, especially those starved of IT resource, can afford,” he said. “Through our partnership with Google and Parallels, we give our channel partners and SMBs the freedom to choose their application platform and we take the pain out of deploying and managing these applications. Our vision is to ensure successful outcomes for our customers and channel partners who are embracing cloud services for the first time.”
