Intermedia and Cloud Telephones form alliance

Cloud application provider and VoIP specialist ink a deal in order to exploit further opportunities for reseller base

Intermedia and Cloud Technologies have formed a new partnership in order to exploit reseller opportunities.

Cloud Telephones, a VoIP specialist distribution arm of DMSL, will push Intermedia’s communications, archiving and backup solutions across its network of SMB resellers. In turn, Intermedia will promote Cloud Telephones’ range of VoIP services to its cloud partners.

It is hoped that the mutual backscratching will allow resellers to take advantage of the ever increasing shift towards public cloud services.

“According to a recent IDC report spending on public cloud services will reach $56.6 billion worldwide this year and $127 billion by 2018, and will generate more than half of software, server and storage spending growth,” said John Carter, managing director of Cloud Telephones. “This is a trend no reseller can afford to ignore.”

“We believe there is significant potential, and our alliance with Intermedia gives Cloud Telephones’ resellers immediate access to a broad set of proven options, so they can offer a wide range of hosted services to their customers with confidence.”

The two businesses will soon be reaching out to their respective partner bases to promote the various services.
