At the Red Hat EMEA Partner Conference in Madrid, 29 September – 2 October, 2013, Ixonos was awarded with the title Cloud Partner of the Year. The award was presented by Petra Heinrich, vice president, Partners and Alliances, EMEA, who says: “Ixonos has been pioneering as an innovative solutions provider with their virtual private cloud, which allows companies to benefit from the flexibility and reliability of data storage and hosting in a combination of cloud and managed data centre.”
Red Hat hands out partner awards to forward-thinking IT companies who strive towards market development that generates mutual benefits. In 2012, Ixonos was awarded Red Hat’s Nordic Channel Project of the Year for demonstrating creative thinking and determined problem-solving in the commercial roll-out of the Ixonos Elastic Cloud™ platform.
“Again this year, Ixonos has implemented Red Hat solutions in an inspiring way that really demonstrates the creativity that has made Ixonos a key partner in the Finnish market over the past three years”, comments Markus Pekkarinen, Red Hat sales manager for Finland and Baltic.
”It’s an honour for us to be awarded such a prestigious award. We have created the virtual private cloud using Red Hat technology in order to offer a unique solution that adapts to various and challenging customer needs,” states Teppo Kuisma, Senior Vice President at Ixonos. “Our private cloud model combines the security of a private cloud with the scalability and workflow automation of public clouds,” he adds.
Ixonos’ virtual private cloud is built on top of Ixonos Elastic Cloud, the first Red Hat Certified Cloud Platform in Northern Europe. Designed for demanding enterprise use, the private cloud works as an extension to Ixonos’ hosted data centre combining the delivery of dedicated infrastructure along with virtual hosting environments. With the hybrid model customer organisations can transfer their data and online services into cloud environments according to their own time frames and resources. They also get to enjoy the benefits offered by the dynamic, expert-level support services that come with the service.
