"Resellers that want to deliver a complete portfolio of cloud services need a high-performance, cloud-managed wireless offering," said Jeff Abramowitz, founder and CEO of PowerCloud Systems. "PowerCloud is an ideal fit for SYNNEX's innovative CLOUDSolv solution platform, as we provide a powerful and affordable CloudCommand platform that SYNNEX solution providers can leverage to deliver new services."

SYNNEX's CLOUDSolv is a comprehensive cloud strategy and marketplace that helps the company's cloud solution providers capture a profitable share of the rapidly growing cloud market. From hosted software and infrastructure, to unified communications and technical support services, CLOUDSolv enables these firms to provision and bill cloud-based solutions, bundle their services, and become more efficient through automation.

"CLOUDSolv bundles the technology solutions any solution provider needs to tackle one of the most transformative trends our industry has seen in decades - cloud computing," said Bob Stegner, senior vice president, marketing, North America, SYNNEX Corporation. "With PowerCloud, we've not only added wireless connectivity, we've done so with a company that has cloud computing, software-defined networking and the channel in its DNA." 

By leveraging PowerCloud's CloudCommand Enterprise Virtual Management Center (VMC) and range of high-capacity Access Points (APs), SYNNEX's VARs can now implement high-performance wireless networks capable of serving highly dense communities of connected users at a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions. PowerCloud Systems' enterprise-class Wi-Fi capabilities use the cloud to deliver intelligence, security, and control to a network of APs while eliminating the need for an expensive, on-site controller. This approach, centered on affordable devices, efficient remote management, and zero-touch configuration, reduces the total cost of ownership for enterprise-class Wi-Fi networks and speeds their deployment. 

What's more, the CloudCommand systems have been built with the channel in mind. The CloudCommand platform includes MSPview™, a multi-network dashboard specifically designed for channel partners. MSPview enables channel partners to centrally manage many end-customer networks, while maintaining the security and logistical isolation of each. In addition, PowerCloud gives CLOUDSolv partners the means to not only implement a private Wi-Fi network with one of the industry's most rapid Returns-on-Investment (ROI); they will be able to transform their wireless access into a revenue-generating platform and a means to deliver new applications that will inform their business decisions.

"Adding SYNNEX and its CLOUDSolv solutions-based strategy to our North American distribution strategy perfectly complements our PowerUp Partner Program and brings our partners access to a full array of cloud-centric solutions," said Bob Biddle, director of Channel Sales at PowerCloud Systems. "We look forward to SYNNEX solutions providers joining our program to add and implement cloud managed Wi-Fi to their solutions mix."
