Griffin has launched its new Hybrid Cloud solution, providing organisations with the extensive benefits of cloud computing regardless of size, via its Channel Partners. In one all-encompassing IT package, applications and services which might previously have been out-of-reach of smaller customers are now a reality, helping them increase productivity and efficiency, removing barriers to growth and improving competitiveness. Griffin’s Hybrid Cloud is available to organisations through Griffin’s network of trusted Channel Partners, giving businesses the additional benefits of a partner’s specialist knowledge and IT support. Together, Easynet and Zynstra provide the Griffin service.

Hybrid Cloud from Griffin offers Channel Partners a new revenue stream and opportunity for margin growth, as well as the ability to put their own stamp on the white-labelled service.

Mike Ayres, Easynet Managing Director Business Markets (UK) Indirect said, “There’s no doubt that 2014 is the year that cloud computing becomes ubiquitous, but amongst SMEs in particular there are still some concerns around complexity, cost, security and resilience. In reality, the Cloud is one of the safest, most cost-effective places for data, and Griffin’s Hybrid Cloud is a perfect fit for SME businesses”. He continues, “This is where our resellers come in: they can dispel the cloud computing myths, offer unrivalled market knowledge and provide impartial expertise and advice. With Hybrid Cloud, customers can experience exactly the same benefits of cloud as a large enterprise, without the need for a huge IT investment.”

Graham Bromham, Managing Director of Solsis (Thames Valley-based award winning Managed Service Provider), commented, “For the reseller, this solution is perfect as it delivers all the IT services a business needs in one fantastic product. It removes the headache of us having to manage multiple products from multiple vendors. With several quick wins already under our belt and more in the pipeline, it’s a winner for us already”.
