Enables Vast Array of Cloud-based Services Along with Peak’s 100% NetApp Storage and Replication Platform
Denver, CO – DECEMBER 15, 2014 — Colorado-based Peak®, an enterprise-class IaaS Cloud provider for channel partners, announces that iQ Solutions Group (iQSG) is launching a new cloud computing services platform, iQ Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), powered by Peak. By white-labeling Peak’s cloud infrastructure as its own, iQSG’s new offering features a vast array of cloud-based services, providing disaster recovery, data protection, and production workload management for customers demanding enterprise-grade performance. As a NetApp Gold partner, iQSG can now replicate client applications into Peak’s cloud, enabling operational efficiencies for all.
iQSG focuses on the design of on-site data center and converged technology solutions for various client verticals. With its new product launch, iQSG is driving increased capabilities to their customer base including the ability to leverage a 100% NetApp-based cloud solution, which is an ideal complement to their existing NetApp reseller business. This allows iQSG to resell NetApp anywhere – in the cloud, on premise, or both.
“Powering our cloud platform with Peak compliments what we have been doing on a per- project basis and allows us to provide robust business continuity strategies for our clients,” comments Tom Richardson, Principal at iQ Solutions Group. “Instead of our customers investing in capital resources of their own, they now have the opportunity to subscribe resources from us. By utilizing Peak’s secure cloud infrastructure, we also eliminated the need to build out our own platform, which would have taken a number of years to build, along with a significant financial investment.”
“Innovative companies like iQSG, recognize how important it is to formulate a powerful go-to-market cloud strategy,” states John Drake, VP of Channel Development for Peak. “Ensuring it has the pulse of its clients’ goals and a deep understanding of their IT requirements, iQSG can bring best-in-breed capabilities to its enterprise clients with minimal investment.”
Peak’s cloud service is backed by a 100% SLA guarantee and is ideal for high performance, high production workloads. As a Platinum-level NetApp Service Provider, Peak’s five tiers of storage are fully redundant with multi-petabyte capabilities in every cloud node. Peaks cloud nodes are located in Silicon Valley, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, New Jersey, New York, Atlanta, and the United Kingdom.
Peak® is an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud service provider to channel partners. White-labeling Peak’s cloud services as their own, resellers and agents rapidly enter the cloud marketplace under their own brand without capital expenditure, enjoying a faster route to profitability. Peak operates Type II SSAE 16 and SOC 1 & 2 compliant cloud nodes in eight geographies across the United States and in Europe (Silicon Valley, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, New Jersey, New York, Atlanta, and the United Kingdom). Its VMware vCloud® Powered cloud environment contains tens of thousands of virtual machines and multiple petabytes of storage for public, private, hybrid and disaster recovery solutions.
