After evaluating a number of potential cloud partners, we was the clear choice for JT.
The company recognised the value in our capabilities in terms of speed-to-market, a comprehensive enablement programme and on-going sales, technical, marketing and management support.
‘Dimension Data’s OneCloud partner proposition was compelling. No-one came close to Dimension Data’s partnership offer and enablement programme,’ said Clark. ‘Dimension Data also gave us a best-of-breed global cloud platform that we could utilise in delivering our own services and also offer our customers the choice to leverage Dimension Data’s data centre infrastructure around the world.’
JT was able to launch its first Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering in December 2013, just twelve weeks after signing up as a Dimension Data OneCloud Partner. JT’s Cloud service is the first Channel Island enterprise-class cloud offering, allowing companies of any size to place critical data services and applications into JT’s state-of-the-art data centres.
‘In addition to having the technical elements of the cloud platform ready for launch, we were also able to ensure that JT was strategically ready to go to market with its new cloud offering,’ said Adam Pozniak, Senior Vice President Channel, Dimension Data.
In December 2014, JT launched its second Cloud offering, based on our Cloud Private Network Connection (CPNC), providing JT’s customers with access to its Cloud services through a secure, private network connection.
‘With CPNC in place, we’re seeing an increasing number of customers moving their production and DR workloads across to JT’s Cloud service,’ said Justin. ‘Utilising our Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network, customers are experiencing even better performance than they were receiving on their own infrastructure.’
