HP and AllTimeIT To Launch Cloud Services for Indian SMBs
EFFICLOUD is built on HP CloudSystem Matrix and powered by HP infrastructure in terms of storage, networking and servers to deliver IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS.
AllTimeIT Solutions, a conglomerate of 15 India-based IT infrastructure services providers and system integrators, has announced the launch of ‘EFFICLOUD’ – a pay-per-use cloud model targeted at the small and medium enterprise needs. As a certified HP CloudAgile partner, AllTimeIT Solutions hopes to tap HP’s network of channel partners, sales and marketing support to promote the adoption of EFFICLOUD.
EFFICLOUD is built on HP CloudSystem Matrix and powered by HP infrastructure in terms of storage, networking and servers to deliver Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). In a bid to scale according to market demand, the backend infrastructure for this cloud offering from AllTimeIT solutions will be hosted on 3rd party datacenters.
EFFICLOUD is optimized by the HP Server Automation and HP Operations Orchestrator software suites, which allows AllTimeIT to offer enhanced customer experiences at a lower cost of operation through task automation, the company said.
Mahesh Shenoy, Director and CTO, ThoughtNet, an ISV in the educations sector who make PupilPod, highlighted the mentality of the Indian SMBs. "We have been working with a Us-based cloud service provider but in the last couple of months, just the dollar fluctuations have increased our costs. If you work with a local player it makes life a lot simpler," he said.
“Our biggest differentiator today is that we have nationwide reach, enabling SMB and enterprise customers to move in to Cloud platform and support them locally,” said Ajay Sawant, Managing Director, AllTimeIT Solutions.
The consortium of 15 HP channel partners enables AllTimeIT Solutions to be present in 72 locations across India and claims access to a force of over 300 sales people and more than 3000 technical service professionals. Each of the 15 SIs will be a shareholding partner but AllTimeIT Solutions will function as an individual entity open to involvement of non-promoter partners as well.
