Faction Launches Cloud Marketplace Allowing for Turn-key Optimization
Denver, CO – June 30, 2015 – Faction, an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud provider offering hybrid, private, and public cloud solutions, announces the launch of Faction Marketplace, a purchasing platform connecting existing customers and channel partners to cloud service and product suppliers.
Faction Marketplace acts as a convenient resource for its partners and resellers to purchase complementary cloud services that enhance the overall functionality of their IT environments. By aggregating service options and price-points, Faction Marketplace simplifies the cloud customization process and matches partners with ideal suppliers. The platform offers a variety of choices for managed services, software solutions and colocation services. All products offered are “Faction-approved” by its expert team and supplied by Faction’s certified channel partners.
“The Marketplace is the latest way Faction can offer flexibility, while transforming and simplifying the cloud industry,” says Matthew Grosso, Executive VP, CTO of Data Storage Corporation, a Faction Channel Partner. “Faction’s leadership, marketing and sales team was a key differentiator in our decision to join their Marketplace. We are ecstatic to provide Faction with an offering that only a handful in the country can deliver, IBM iSeries Cloud solution for Disaster Recovery (AS400).”
“As a global IT solutions distributor, we’ve designed our managed services suite including Managed OS, Managed Firewall, Managed Security and Managed Backup to give our partners increased capabilities and the power of choice,” states Tim FitzGerald, Vice President of Cloud Services for Avnet Technology Solutions. “True to our commitment of offering cutting edge resources for our partners, we’ve made these services available on the new Faction Marketplace – a convenient meet-up portal that increases options and flexibility for solution providers.”
“Faction is a very strategic partner for CloudXOS,” comments John Clendennen, CEO and Founder of CloudXOS. “Their ability to manage critical workloads for our customers, and the support the Faction team brings has been very valuable. With the new Faction Marketplace, we can easily enable our customers to deploy CloudXOS, our Hybrid-Cloud management software built with OpenStack and deep Microsoft integration.”
“Faction Marketplace is just another example of how we put our customers first,” says Luke Norris, Chief Executive Officer of Faction. “At Faction we emphasize deep control coupled with a high degree of flexible fine-tunable cloud resource pools for end-users, and the Marketplace acts as a one-stop platform to connect the best suppliers to our customers – making cloud optimization simple.”
Since the company’s rebrand earlier this year, Faction introduced a flexible cloud computing portfolio designed the way customers want it – with deep access, broad customization capabilities and patented layer 2 private pathways to the Faction cloud. The Faction Marketplace simplifies the supplier-shopping process and allows for fast and convenient cloud improvement.
