Designed from the ground up to offer partners a single, integrated product stack of connectivity and hosted services, Cerberus Networks’ cloud computing platform delivers a single tightly integrated solution backed up by their Business Evolution programme.

MyCloud represents a major investment by Cerberus and aims to help service providers break into the rapidly expanding hosted services market without the associated risks of expanding into new business areas whilst delivering true economies of scale and enhanced resilience.

The Cerberus MyCloud platform has been designed to offer several distinct advantages for partners looking to provide cloud services for their clients, combining business connectivity services from multiple network operators with a full suite of cloud-based services delivered from UK-based data centres and backed up with highest levels of partner support at all stages of engagement.

Bob Hendy, Director at Cerberus Networks said “With the MyCloud concept, we deliver a comprehensive suite of key hosted services integrated with managed connectivity solutions to deliver fast, reliable access and an unparalleled user experience. MyCloud offers unified messaging and communications tools, online backup and managed security solutions, providing end-to-end solutions that meet real business needs.”

Hendy added “The Business Evolution programme means that we work with partners on every stage of the migration to cloud-based services. Clients don’t have to make all or nothing decisions. The MyCloud platform lets us host key services whilst keeping other systems in-house, complementing existing workflows and in-house skills.”

The MyCloud platform can be fully re-branded by partners and has the option to set up sub-accounts each with their own branding, each with their own customer-facing portal for provisioning and management of hosted services.

All existing Cerberus partners will automatically be given a new MyCloud account where they will be able to log in to the portal and start provisioning services straight away. Partners are billed monthly only for the services they use and there are no contract terms or minimum commitments.

Cerberus is offering free migration in for partners looking to move their clients’ existing ADSL connectivity to Cerberus to take advantage of the suite of hosted services offered by the MyCloud platform. The free migration offer is running until 31st October 2011.

To complement the launch of the MyCloud hosted services platform, Cerberus has also announced an increase in helpdesk staff and has announced that the Cerberus helpdesk is now available 24×7 to further support partners.
