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.
