Cloud Plus expands into Victoria

Appoints Chris Eaton as its new channel account manager for the state

Brisbane-based wholesale provider of private Cloud services, Cloud Plus, is expanding its presence into Victoria.

It has appointed Chris Eaton as its new channel account manager for Victoria, to help service partner and business growth. Eaton previously worked for Gateway Business Communications and Telarus.

In his new role, Eaton will be responsible for helping partners win new business and increasing their Cloud service revenue.

Cloud Plus has expanded its operations, with network, security and systems infrastructure in four major data centres in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. This provides partners with flexibility in terms of physical hosting location, and also a range of high-availability and disaster recovery options.

Cloud Plus CEO, Jules Rumsey, said its partners can have access to enterprise-grade Cloud solutions that they can sell under their own brand. Rumsey launched Cloud Plus in 2010.

“Many systems integrators have been burned by Cloud and hosting providers that deliver substandard service levels, data security, and tech support,” Rumsey said. “Cloud Plus only sells via partners, so we are 100 per cent focused on delivering Cloud solutions that help our partners improve their sales, productivity and profitability.”

Solutions from Cloud Plus can incorporate Internet access, private network services, managed firewall and related security services, virtual servers with SSD accelerated storage, backup and replication, and disaster recovery.

Every service element is fault tolerant, and based on technology from vendors such as Cisco, IBM, EMC, VMware, and Fortinet.
