Entreda Spells Opportunity for Cloud Services Providers
Announces First Comprehensive SME/Franchise/ROBO IT-as-a-Service Platform Including Fail-safe Backup, Managed Security, Hybrid Architecture & More
October 25, 2011, Menlo Park, CA: Entreda Inc. today announced the launch of the Entreda Unify IT-as-a-Service, a revolutionary new offering for cloud services providers (CSPs) including carriers & broadband ISPs, cloud IaaS &hosting vendors, vertical & specialty MSPs and more. By deploying the Entreda platform as an enhancement to their existing SME line-of-business, CSPs can close the SME IT support gap by delivering comprehensive and affordable managed IT-as-a-Service for their customers while generating a lucrative stream of incremental revenue.
"Entreda is committed to helping cloud services providers (CSPs) close the SME IT support gap and help drive SME cloud adoption by delivering affordable enterprise-grade IT-as-a-Service", said Farshad Ghaffari, Co-founder of Entreda. "On today's fragmented and silo-centric vendor landscape, SMEs often have to choose from among a salad bar of incompatible point solutions for backup, security and other core IT capabilities, or choose to go without essential disaster recovery and business continuity protection. With the launch of the Entreda Unify IT-as-a-Service, those days are gone. By augmenting their existing SME initiatives with the Entreda Unify IT-as-a-Service, cloud services providers can generate new value-added services income for their stakeholders," Ghaffari added.
"As an investor in Entreda,I am pleased to see Entreda's vision of IT-as-a-Service come to fruition with the launch of the Entreda Unify IT-as-a-Service", said Jens Horstmann, Managing Director of Crestlight Venture Productions. "Entreda is now well-positioned to help carriers and cloud services providers drive incremental revenue on their networks and serve the needs of 21st century SMEs," Horstmann added.
