(Gawkwire) – Channel Partners , a resource for indirect sales channels offering IT and telecom solutions, is pleased to announce that Wired Networks and CLOUD ASSURANCE has been selected as a winner of the 2014 Cloudys Cloud Channel Innovation Awards.
Twenty-five winners were honored during an awards ceremony on Sept. 8 at Cloud Partners, a Channel Partners event, in New Orleans. These winners will be featured in a Channel Partners’ November/December print issue as well as a digital issue that can be downloaded from The Cloudys Immersion Center athttp://www.channelpartnersonline.com/cloudys. The 2014 program was underwritten by Verizon.
"The response to the inaugural Channel Partners Cloudys awards has been overwhelmingly positive," said Khali Henderson, Editor-in-Chief of Channel Partners. "This program rewards innovation across the cloud ecosystem and success in a world where traditional distinctions among developer, vendor, provider and partner blur.”
Wired Networks Cloud Assurance offering was honored by Channel Partners for The Most Innovative Cloud Best Practice for 2014.
Jeremy Kerth, president of Wired Networks explains Cloud Assurance:“There’s no question the cloud is changing the way businesses consume services across both the public and private cloud. We believe customers need and want a tangible user experience rather than hoping for the best when it comes to cloud services. After delivering on behalf of our customers several thousand WAN nodes all over the world, we realize customer’s remote locations are not all created equal. For that reason, CLOUD ASSURANCE has the ability to deliver 99.9%, 99.95%, 99.99% and 99.999% network up-time depending on the customer’s end point user need. We do this by utilizing best practices, streamlined processes, lab testing, managed hardware, a full-time NOC for proactive issue resolution and best of breed WAN solutions. Cloud Assurance is able to offer an end-user the ability to determine what level of up-time is right for them, and then deliver a turn-key user experience all day every day. This experience allows our customer’s employees to be more productive by leveraging cloud applications, which drives more value to their end-user customers, which in turn makes Wired Networks customers more revenue."
To determine the winners of The Cloudys, companies completed an application that asked them to demonstrate how they are driving innovation in the cloud channel — either for their partners or for their business customers.
Channel Partners editors evaluated and scored all applications to determine the winners in five categories, including:
