Ingram Micro has signed up services, cloud and hosting specialist, Ultra Serve, as its first partner in its newly formed Services Group.
Through Ultra Serve, it will offer a suite of hosted infrastructure services including virtual machines, dedicated machines, Cloud machines and managed services.
It will be hosted via Ultra Serve’s local datacentre facilities and resellers can white-label and configure the services through a Web portal.
My Take> Great work by Samuel to put such a strategic channel partner on his hosted platform. Also a great move by Ingram to get into the cloud and hosting market with a white label service. I’ve seen the Ultra Serve platform management console in action and it’s a very slick system and a great fit for this customer segment. Well done Samuel!
Hi and thanks for dropping in!
This is my first blog entry. I thought I’d let you know what sort of topics I plan to write about and provide commentary on, as well as telling you a little about myself.
I’ve been in IT for what sometimes seems like forever. I’m a technology professional working in IT Sales and Yes.. I have to admit (with an uncomfortable smirk) I’m a closet nerd!
My first exposure to computers was back in my impressionable teen years in the 80’s, way back when Atari, Commodore 64, Vic-20 and the Apple 2e amazed us with 2d wire graphics on a green screen and sprite graphics on a TV. An era of cassette tapes and cartridge based programs.
Wow!@!@!… haven’t we come a long way in personal computing! One of my first jobs out of school exposed me to the inner workings of computers. I was assembling XT and 286 based computers at the time consumers were just starting to truly become aware of the personal computer, with the advent of the mighty 286.
For almost 20 years now, I’ve been managing and developing complex IT solutions with $1M to $30M dollar budgets for Enterprise and Corporate Companies.
The industries Ive worked across includes;
- Finance and Banking
- Media & Entertainment
- Federal and State Government
I’ve held senior roles in technology and services companies including;
- Asia Pacific Director for Infrastructure and Architecture Services for a large US Multinational Outsourcer
- Sales & Business Development
- Technical Consulting
- Project Management
- DR & BCP Consulting
