CTERA Announces Parallels Automation Partnership
CTERA Networks has announced the launch of a certified Application Packaging Standard (APS) for its storage-as-a-service offerings.
The APS will see CTERA, a leader in cloud storage enablement, integrate its services with Parallels Automation, a data centre platform for cloud service providers (CSPs) to offer, sell and provision every type of cloud service.
This will mean that CSPs using Parallels Automation platform can sell, provision, manage and bill for CTERA-based offerings and deliver backup and recovery services, enterprise file sync and share services, and disaster recovery and management services using CTERA cloud storage gateways – all from a single, integrated cloud framework.
Jeff Denworth, senior vice president of marketing at CTERA, explained the APS: “With a total addressable customer base of tens of millions of end customers, service automation is key to being successful in today’s cloud storage-as-a-service provider market.
“Our service provider partners now have even more options to easily upsell cloud storage services to their customers. CTERA dramatically reduces service provider time-to-market, while also enabling the delivery of the broadest suite of storage-as-a-service offerings to maximise revenue per user.”
Essentially, by packaging its Cloud Storage Services Platform for Parallels APS, CTERA now enables simple and secure provisioning of white-labelled cloud-storage services via Parallels Automation.
Alex Danyluk, senior director, Alliances, Parallels, added: “We are excited to partner with CTERA, helping service providers benefit from a simple and automated approach to delivering a broad suite of cloud storage services to customers large and small.”
