Partnership Leverages UNSi’s Expansive Network to Deliver to the Cloud
April 4, 2013, Pittsburgh, PA: United Network Services, Inc. (UNSi), a premiere next generation carrier and provider of “intelligent & flexible” Internet and managed services, has signed a partnership agreement with RapidScale, Inc., an emerging cloud application provider and part of UNSi’s new Ecosystem Program. The new partnership produces an efficient solution in delivering business applications to the cloud via UNSi’s private and secure MPLS network, providing a high-performance solution for businesses that depend on Quality of Service (QoS). CloudMail, CloudDesktop and CloudRecovery are other services that will be available via UNSi.
As cloud applications are becoming the main theme for businesses these days, security and QoS are issues that IT professionals face. UNSi’s CloudMPLS offering with RapidScale solves these cloud performance issues. “Adding RapidScale to our market-defining Ecosystem Program is an advantage to all of our partners and customers,” stated Allan Schwartz, SVP of Strategic Planning and Business Development. “Partnerships such as this one will continue to redefine the industry expectations of “traditional” telecom, and instead come to expect the best product when, where and as it is needed,” added Mr. Schwartz.
CloudMPLS will provide end-users the biggest benefit in the form of QoS, security and ROI since host site bandwidth costs will decrease as Internet access can be pulled from CloudMPLS facilities at a fraction of the cost compared to dedicated bandwidth to an office. “We’re thrilled to partner with UNSi since we see the empowerment of our two companies being able to change the way businesses buy business applications, manage business application performance and support end-users,” stated Randy Jeter, CEO of RapidScale. “The biggest opportunity with our CloudMPLS offering is that both companies are committed to building and deploying the most advanced business application network in the world.”
