1Cloud has been designed to meet the needs of Channel Partners, allowing them to further enhance their value proposition by offering cloud as they face pressure from their customers to provide cloud services. With easy ordering via the 1Cloud portal, introductory offers and discounts, Virtual1 are again demonstrating their commitment to the Channel.

Integrated into the Virtual1 network 1Cloud provides a fully automated platform giving partners the ability to build secure, resilient and scalable solutions that can resolve previous data security and privacy issues.

Virtual1 continues to manage the infrastructure whilst the Partners take charge of the end-user relationship helping them drive more successful business outcomes.”
