ProfitBricks Partners with Pax8 for Exclusive US Distribution
San Antonio, 02/03/2016 – ProfitBricks, the leading provider of painless cloud infrastructure, today announced a partnership with Pax8 that will make the cloud services enabler and distributor the exclusive distributor of the ProfitBricks IaaS platform in the US and Canada.
ProfitBricks is one of the world’s leading true-cloud platforms and is joining with Pax8 to help small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and the IT channel ease the transition from traditional infrastructure to the cloud. Over the last year, ProfitBricks has emerged as a preferred vendor for managed service providers (MSPs), Value Added Resellers (VARs) and IT and Cloud service providers, in part because of its flexible platform, but also because of its customer favorable pricing and terms.
"As a worldwide cloud provider, we are seeing growth in the US market to be especially strong when it comes to MSPs and VARs. We felt we needed a much stronger distribution channel for this market, which is why we’re partnering with Pax8. The team at Pax8 is highly skilled at enabling MSPs with cloud solutions for every need of the SMB, from email to security to cloud infrastructure,” said ProfitBricks CMO Andreas Gauger.
Pax8 will now have the exclusive distribution rights in the US and Canada for the ProfitBricks’ painless cloud and will continue to help MSPs, VARs and IT Service providers migrate to and build profit centers on cloud infrastructure, tools and apps. ProfitBricks offers a comprehensive solution, cloud data center management tools and support for ConnectWise and other popular channel enablement platforms.
"My team and I have been selling solutions into the channel for decades, and we’re now helping MSPs, VARs and IT Solution providers make the transition to cloud infrastructure. We've been amazed by the flexibility and performance of the ProfitBricks cloud platform, on which we and our MSPs and IT solution providers have been able to deploy multiple complex, formerly on-premises only solutions,” said Pax8 CEO John Street.
