“Ingram Micro is now reselling our service to their VAR community, with their help we will be able to reach out to Canadian customers,” said Graffia.

The collaboration with Equinix is part of dinCloud’s plan to expand into several countries this year. The Calif-based carrier-neutral data centre firm has two data centres in Toronto.

Ingram Micro has an extensive distribution network across Canada. Graffia said Ingram Micro will begin offering dinCloud services to its VARs by the third quarter of 2016.

“Anyone that wants to get into the managed services space can take advantage of our cloud infrastructure and technology and sell it as a managed IT service,” said Graffia. “Our technology is ideal for Canadian SMBs looking to cut down cost and complexity.”

For instance, dinCloud’s virtual desktop services allows organizations to rapidly provision and configure virtual computers and scale up from one to 1,000 machines in a matter of minutes instead of days.

“Our technology enabled organizations to customize solutions, computing power as well as role-based access and security in an automated manner,” said Graffia. “Cases studies show our customers can save as much as 50 per cent across the board in expenses compared to traditional computing.”
