Exertis has partnered with Pulsant to provide resellers with solutions to meet growing demands for decentralised IT infrastructure.
Through the partnership, Exertis will offer Pulsant’s network of 10 interconnected UK edge data centres to channel partners, enabling resellers to better serve those customers looking to enable data, applications and content to be processed and managed at the network edge. With end-user organisations increasingly looking to decentralise data and workloads, resellers will be able to capitalise on this transition and reclaim profit streams lost to public cloud services.
The development is part of Exertis’ ongoing strategy to further broaden its portfolio as an enterprise IT distributor and offer support and solutions to channel partners for the modern IT environment. With Pulsant as a partner, Exertis can now offer colocation alongside its existing portfolio of cloud, edge and networking solutions, enabling resellers to offer clients an end-to-end infrastructure portfolio, covering IoT, edge, cloud and data centres.
“We’re pleased to add Pulsant to our ever-expanding enterprise service portfolio, which will help assist partners in growing their own opportunities, competitiveness and offerings. Providing additional colocation services into the channel, and more in-depth edge opportunities, is a great benefit to both our new and existing customers,” said Geoff Towns, head of enterprise services, Exertis Enterprise.
With end-user organisations increasingly needing guidance on where to position workloads and data, Pulsant will work with Exertis to help resellers to grow their businesses by working on colocation and edge opportunities. Pulsant will also deliver a comprehensive training programme, supported by regular reviews and marketing and sales collateral.
“Exertis is one of the largest technology distributors and our partnership will enable us to increase our penetration of the channel market and allow resellers to capitalise on growing cloud and emerging edge opportunities through colocation. Both our companies have similar visions and a strong commitment to providing the best experience and opportunity for the channel, so it’s a perfect coming together of similar philosophies,” added Stephen Ball, chief sales officer at Pulsant.
