OneNet Continues to Help Clients Embrace the Cloud through Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Program
The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program allows OneNet to provide direct billing, sell combined offers and services, as well as directly provision, manage and support Microsoft cloud offerings.
Auckland, New Zealand — August 15th, 2016 — OneNet Limited, a market leader and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced its participation in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program (CSP). The 1-Tier CSP program allows partners to address client IT needs across productivity, infrastructure and CRM with Office 365, Microsoft Intune, Enterprise Mobility Suite, Microsoft Azure and CRM Online. The program is designed to strengthen client relationships and expand cloud sales opportunities by enabling partners to own and control client billing, sell integrated offers and services in a single package, as well as directly provision, manage and support products and services.
Starting today, OneNet owns the complete client lifecycle, allowing it to easily sell Microsoft cloud services and help clients realise the benefits of the cloud by owning the entire billing process and directly managing support. To achieve Tier 1 status, OneNet had to demonstrate strong capabilities across four areas: its services business model, scale, support services and infrastructure, and clear, customer-focused invoicing. OneNet has joined the program as a 1-Tier partner, selling Microsoft cloud services directly to clients. 1-Tier includes partners with broad market reach, a 24 x 7 technical support relationship with their clients as well as direct ownership of the billing.
OneNet was established when the clouds were just forming, established 16 years ago to focus on building private cloud solutions. Initial clouds were based on virtualisation technology and have grown to incorporate software-defined infrastructure solutions that deliver value across an entire organisation. Since 2000, OneNet has had a cloud and mobile strategy that has evolved with technology, tools, market readiness and client needs. Today, OneNet advises some of the largest organisations in New Zealand on how best to leverage the huge opportunity that is presented bycloud computing.
“We’ve been helping clients assess their cloud options for over 16 years and in the last 12 months are seeing a huge increase in serious adoption of public cloud technologies such as Office 365 and Azure,” said Roman Paljk, General Manager. “Joining the Cloud Solution Provider program allows us to build stronger relationships with our clients and provide them with the best cloud solutions to propel their business.”
“Through the Cloud Solution Provider program, we work closely with our hosting partners to deliver flexible solutions that combine Microsoft technologies with partner expertise and services,” said John Wiltshire, Hosting Partner Account Manager, Microsoft New Zealand. “This opens up massive opportunities for partners to package their solutions with Microsoft cloud offerings and provides clients with a custom roadmap to the cloud.”
OneNet’s AaaS (Azure as a Service) Cloud solution, powered by Azure and facilitated by our membership in the Microsoft CSP program, enable us to help clients evolve their data centre to embrace the flexibility of cloud. This also drives down costs with tried and tested private, public, hybrid and co-location cloud solutions delivering anything from a test environment to backup or disaster recovery right through to seasonal workload bursting or even a full blown private AaaS datacentre.
OneNet is an experienced infrastructure solution and service provider. OneNet believes in harnessing the right technology to deliver innovative solutions, build solid business cases and ensure the smooth transition of new technology to enable client organisations to grow whilst reducing risk and maximising return on investment.
