Winners of the second annual Managed Services Awards were announced at a dinner in London on Wednesday 19thAugust. Virtual1, owners of the UKs most advanced wholesale-only network, were crowned winners in the category Best Comms/UC MSP Projectfor our 1Cloudplatform.
The 2019 Managed Services Awards featured 16 categories, recognising success for both Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Vendors in the managed services sector.
Virtual1 has carefully selected Cloud software Partnerships , which enable us to offer leading solutions that are cost-effective and provide flexible alternatives to traditional hosting services.
1Cloud is based on hybrid cloud software. The Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution uses a virtualised environment for hosting, which reduces the need for upfront investment in hardware, and minimises the cost of ongoing hardware management. It’s fully customisable, and the unique platform allows Virtual1’s Partners to present their own branded Cloud solution to their end customers.
A platform for collaboration
1Cloud has provided Virtual1 with a platform to collaborate with Partners, and bring a range of cutting-edge propositions to market. Unified Comms solutions are ideally suited to the environment. The low CAPEX and simple commercial structure of our IaaS offering, and private connections to complementary services including leading SIP providers, creates the ideal ecosystem for resellers who have previously delivered on-premise solutions, to now make the transition to cloud delivery.
Removing the burden of CAPEX and upskilling requirements, Virtual1 takes care of infrastructure demands, allowing Partners to maintain focus on their core business.
Working exclusively for the channel, Virtual1 are the most advanced wholesale-only UK Carrier, delivering up to 10Gb bandwidth to 180 towns and cities across the country from over 280 on-net exchanges.
At the heart of our state-of-the-art infrastructure is a bespoke Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) environment, alongside Backup, colocation services and private connectivity to market-leading UC, SIP and Cloud reseller solutions.
Our infrastructure is fully software defined and places the control and configuration of services directly under our partner’s control via our award winning 1Portal and suite of API’s. Our Partners are empowered to quote, order and deliver fully integrated connectivity and cloud solutions that they can control 24/7.
