As cloud services evolve, many IT solution providers and resellers are finding themselves deliberating what is the best strategy to transition into managed services.
CTERA has decoupled the ability to run managed cloud-based services from the need to become a "cloud provider".
Thanks to the CTERA Portal's multi-tier, multi-tenant architecture, resellers and MSPs can run their own branded cloud-based data protection and storage solutions, manage user accounts, create service plans and provision cloud storage without having to invest in or manage cloud storage infrastructure.
By running the SaaS Edition of the CTERA Portal, these solution providers can get started with cloud service with a minimal upfront investment, and rapidly launch managed services into their customer base.
Established cloud providers and "Master MSPs", can run the CTERA Portal Datacenter Edition, with a flexible cloud storage back-end, and work both directly with their customer or via resellers to provide managed cloud-based data protection services whilst controlling every aspect of the infrastructure they use.
This also allows such MSPs to extend their reach to business customers they would have otherwise not been able to acquire as customers.
