By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- independenceIT®, Globalworx and SaskTel have launched a new partnership to create the industry's most comprehensive and powerful turn-key solution for the virtualization of desktops and applications, including Oracle Identity Manager, through an exclusive channel-only partner program across Canada.
By leveraging iIT's Cloud Workspace™ Suite and SaskTel, one of Canada's strongest telecom and data center companies, Globalworx's channel-only offering now provides Canadian and U.S. VARS, MSPs and ISPs a turnkey Desktop as a Service (DaaS) software solution at a predictable price - all within the landscape of Canada's stringent data protection mandates.
"For VARs, MSPs and ISPs who want to stake out a lucrative claim of recurring revenue for their business, this partnership brings an unbeatable combination of the highest quality infrastructure through SaskTel, our own leading DaaS software Cloud Workspace™, and Globalworx's transformational cloud services, all in one channel-only opportunity," said Seth Bostock, president and COO of independenceIT.
independenceIT's new partnership with SaskTel and Globalworx includes the first seamless cloud integration with Oracle's Virtual Machine and Oracle Identity and Access Management suite, which ensures closed-loop remediation, all at one affordable price. This hypervisor's functionality is normally affordable only to the world's largest enterprises and by itself delivers an unprecedented opportunity for fast ROI to partners and end-users alike.
"We are offering our partners a clear path to generating new revenue across Canada and also the option to invite businesses of all sizes from across our borders to access our Cloud Workspace from iIT all under the private umbrella of SaskTel's protected data centers," Steve Cahill, senior vice president of Globalworx.
The Saskatchewan Telecommunications Holding Corporation (SaskTel) is the leading full service communications provider in Saskatchewan, with $1.2 billion in annual revenue and a highly skilled workforce. SaskTel's highly secure world class data center is located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, and is 100% Canadian owned and operated making it a good choice for those concerned about privacy issues in U.S. - based data centers.
"Identity management is a key component of any IT strategy," said Brian Baird, CTO, Identity Management Centre of Excellence at SaskTel. "The turnkey integration with the Cloud Workspace™ Suite, along with its proven DaaS performance will bring us new opportunities to leverage our robust infrastructure," he added.
"The protection of data is an active topic across all provinces and is why we are proactively reporting on and advocating for privacy in cloud computing environments," Robert Hart, Founder and CEO of Cloud Council, the key voice for cloud computing in Canada. "The partnership between Globalworx, SaskTel and independenceIT seems designed to firewall data from global predators and keep it securely within the borders and privacy rules of our nation," Hart said.
