HP and Cobweb to Offer Private-label Hosted Solutions for Value-added Resellers
HP’s collaboration with Cobweb will provide U.K.-based channel partners the opportunity to enter the growing cloud market by offering new hosted solutions that allow customers to take advantage of monthly subscriptions. This eliminates the need for upfront capital expenditures and instead converts them to operating expenses.
Private-label hosted solutions available through this agreement include Microsoft® Exchange Server, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Windows® SharePoint Services and Microsoft email archiving – some of today’s fastest-growing hosted services.
“Small and midsize organizations can lower costs and optimize staff resources with these new hosted solutions," said Lisa Wolfe, manager, Worldwide Midmarket Strategy and Marketing, Technology Solutions Group, HP. “HP and Cobweb are helping channel partners deliver a broader range of offerings with the hosted services and remain trusted technology advisors for their customers.”
Cobweb’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings run on reliable, energy-efficient HP BladeSystem and HP ProLiant servers.
“Our collaboration with HP helps VARs deliver best-in-class solutions and services that enable customers to streamline their operations and cut costs,” said Mark Adams, managing director, Cobweb. “Our new SaaS offerings are the next step in empowering the channel to grow their businesses.”(1)
“We have been watching the evolution of the cloud computing environment for several years now and wondering which supplier would crack the code on building a comprehensive strategy for its customers, including its channel (which is not easy to do),” said Christina Richmond, channels analyst, IDC. “HP gets the prize for first to market with an overarching approach that benefits HP, its customers and channel partners.”
