Building a cloud practice, or adding cloud services to your existing portfolio is more than just putting another product on your line card. Stepping into the world of cloud services and the recurring revenue it brings with it is an exciting opportunity. More lucrative than the margin on vendor cloud infrastructure services is the profit you’ll make on your offerings for set fees and ongoing managed services. In this session, David Stephens will talk with you about building your cloud infrastructure practice and working with the Ingram Micro Cloud team. Quinn Devery will then talk with you about the SoftLayer advantage. SoftLayer, an IBM company, is home to an expanding cloud service platform. SoftLayer offers you flexibility with: virtualized and dedicated bare metal servers; self-service or managed infrastructure; public, private or hybrid deployments. More than any other cloud infrastructure vendor, SoftLayer offers you control over the infrastructure through a single pane portal to control and tune all services. A single API with a broad set of services compliments the management GUI. The SoftLayer advantage, coupled with the support of Ingram Micro Cloud is a winning combination for you.
