Successful momentum setting the tone for 2016 – Join us!

By | News, Xterity Blog | No Comments

2015 was a pivotal year for Egenera.  Egenera has long been a player in the infrastructure and enterprise software space, and after several years of selling wholesale cloud services in Ireland, we decided to take the product worldwide and offer it to channel partners. In April, we announced the Xterity Cloud Service offering in the US, EMEA, and APAC markets.  Fast forward eight months later, and our progress has been nothing short of amazing.

What started as a small IaaS operation in Ireland has turned into a highly successful global business, thanks to the hard work of our employees and of our rapidly growing network of partners worldwide.  Our offerings now include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and as of today, we have over 135 channel partners across the globe selling Xterity to customers big and small. We signed our first US partner in July and since then, its Xterity revenue has grown 6X.  We’ve also expanded our operations throughout EMEA and signed a large UK distributor, Entatech, that will be rebranding Xterity as its own cloud offering called Entacloud and offering it to its network of 5000+ MSPs.  In APAC, we launched our first cloud location this fall and already have revenue-generating partners in Japan.

As a technology, cloud is all the rage with a large number of big players – AWS and Microsoft Azure to name two.  But, as more and more resellers look to offer cloud services, Egenera’s wholesale, managed public cloud will stand out with its higher margins, better management, re-branding, higher SLA’s, flexibility and 7×24 worldwide support.

As a company, we’re heading into 2016 with greater momentum than we’ve ever had. Cloud adoption is rapidly growing worldwide and channel partners are seeking out organizations that can help them quickly deliver new, revenue generating, high margin cloud services to their end user customers.

In 2016, Egenera is in the perfect position to be the partner of choice.

Launch of Tokyo cloud will deliver IaaS, BaaS, DRaaS to resellers

Boxborough, Mass., – November 11, 2015Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services and cloud management solutions, today announced the formal launch of its Xterity Cloud Service in Tokyo.  Xterity is now serving a total of six regions: San Jose, Ashburn VA, and Boston in the US, and Ireland, the UK and Japan.

Egenera’s Xterity Cloud Services deliver a full range of dedicated, managed, private and hybrid cloud services, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Backup as a Service (BaaS), exclusively through the channel. With Xterity, resellers can quickly enter the cloud services market with no up-front capital or ongoing maintenance costs.  Unlike reselling public cloud services, Xterity delivers the margins resellers need to develop a profitable cloud services business.

“Xterity will enable service providers to quickly provide flexible cloud services without upfront investment, so users can secure their data with high reliability and quality,” said Koichi Suzuki, Deputy President of Daiwa Institute of Research (DIR). “We also have a high degree of confidence in the further enhancement of Xterity so that we can enjoy and deliver easy-to-use and reliable IT services.”

With Egenera’s Xterity Cloud Service now established in Tokyo, the company is poised to gain traction in the large and growing Japanese cloud market.  Research indicates that Japan and the APAC region as a whole is adopting cloud services at a record pace. According to IDC, the size of the public cloud market in Japan for 2015 is 251.6 Billion JPY (29.5% growth over 2014) and is predicted to be 540.4 Billion JPY (2.8 times of 2014) by 2019.  (Source: IDC Japan Press Release “Japan Public IT Cloud Services 2015-2019 Forecast Update” August 6, 2015).

“2015 has been a year of growing momentum for Egenera,” said Pete Manca, President and CEO of Egenera. “Xterity’s paradigm of providing managed private, public and hybrid cloud services is a straightforward win for the channel.  Our partners gain massive cost savings by using our platform as well as the peace of mind that comes from a managed service. The market is growing exponentially in Japan and we are looking forward to servicing our growing list of channel partners in this market.”
