ThinkGrid and Mezeo Announce Partnership(May 11, 2009)
HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 05/11/09 -- UK-based hosted IT provider ThinkGrid has announced its partnership with Mezeo Software Corp. As part of its IT on demand service offering, ThinkGrid will soon be able to utilise the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform(TM), which allows users to access, share and collaborate on files on an 'anytime, anywhere' basis.
ThinkGrid COO David Pratt states: "We are proud to announce that ThinkGrid has been selected as Mezeo's first PHP (Premier Hosting Partner) in the whole of Europe. This relationship will allow us to deliver the company's deployable cloud storage platform to service providers and other resellers, bringing added value and greater competitive advantage at a time when these qualities are more important than ever. Mezeo's highly secure cloud storage platform was purpose-built for the IT service provider market, and it has given us the opportunity to quickly deploy cloud storage services without the costs or delays involved in developing the solution from scratch ourselves."
Cloud storage is growing in popularity due to the benefits they provide, such as simple, CapEx-free costs, anywhere access and the removal of the burden of in-house maintenance and management.
Steve Lesem, Mezeo's President and CEO, explains: "We believe that mass adoption of cloud-based IT services requires that they be offered by significant, trusted service providers, which is why ThinkGrid was a perfect choice to partner with us. As for security in the cloud, the combination of the Mezeo platform and its use of encryption for data in motion and data at rest with the management and infrastructure of a trusted service provider like ThinkGrid, establish the required confidence for cloud storage to take off. ThinkGrid is an innovative and reliable presence in the marketplace, and is doing much to bolster belief in the cloud, so we fully expect that together we can make great strides in continuing to establish cloud computing as a trustworthy and secure solution as well as a cost-efficient and convenient one."
ThinkGrid's cloud storage service is due to be launched later this month.
