LevelCloud Launches Desktop as a Service within Artisan Infrastructure Solution Provider Ecosystem. LevelCloud's Cloud Partner Program Emphasis on Quality Over Quantity.

Corona, CA, Nov 13, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- LevelCloud, a leading channel-only wholesales cloud solutions provider, and Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider, have partnered to enable managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs) to white label a turn-key Desktop as a Service (DaaS)offering that is completely browser based.

With origins as a Southern California MSP founded in 2004, LevelCloud understands the challenges associated with growing an MSP business. This understanding and background uniquely positions LevelCloud to help partners in growing their cloud business by minimizing their learning curve and avoiding costly mistakes of building and managing a highly redundant 24/7 infrastructure.

"I spent quite a bit of time evaluating several well-known cloud solution providers and ended up choosing LevelCloud for several reasons," says Wayne Klug, CEO of Spectrum Technology Solutions, a Phoenix based MSP. "From the moment I met LevelCloud at SMB Nation in October 2011, I found myself speaking not to a sales person, but to a team of professionals who I felt were passionate about the value their solution provides to the SMB space and genuinely interested in helping me grow my business. From the very core, LevelCloud's partner program is unlike any other solution providers. While many solution providers are motivated to build a large reseller base, LevelCloud is interested in finding but a handful of MSPs who they can work with very closely to provide the individual attention and support needed to market, sell, implement, and support cloud services for my clients.

Artisan Infrastructure's Cloud Solution Provider Ecosystem is made of up channel centric solution providers who enable VARs through white label solutions for resale.The varying cloud services Crafted On Artisan Infrastructure include but are not limited to Desktop as a Service, VoIP, video conferencing, unified communications, data back up and email.

"When evaluating IaaS partners to build our Channel Only Cloud Solution, we had important criteria to be met. Not only would our IaaS partner need to have a best in class network, a great engineering team and a proven history, they would have to provide us with a vehicle that would help us succeed. To date, we have found no other partner like Artisan Infrastructure. Aside from being a pure play wholesale IaaS provider, they also don't build any solutions for resale. The fact Artisan Infrastructure would never compete with our offering was unexpected, combine that with market development funds, joint marketing/webinar initiatives and zero cost demonstration and trial capacity took our relationship to a whole new level. We realized quickly they were not just a vendor, but a true partner. Artisan Infrastructure gains success by helping us succeed as a channel cloud vendor." said President of Level Cloud, Biren Shukla.

"LevelCloud delivers value-add to our channel partners by providing hosted Desktop as a Service, which alleviates the resellers need to staff specialized engineering heads. By working deeply to understand LevelCloud's unique products we are able to help optimize their cost and scale strategies. This also ensures that LevelCloud's customers achieve the highest margins while maintaining complete control of their customers, strengthening the resellers "stickiness" and bottom line," said Steve Williams, Vice President of Business Development for Artisan Infrastructure.
