February 23, 2011 by · Comments Off on Parallels announces enablement of new Cloud Infrastructure, Hosted PBX and APS-based services as SMB cloud consumption to increase sharply 

Hosting BlogORLANDO, FL. – Hosting and Cloud service enablement leader Parallels today announced it is positioning itself for the growth in small and medium business cloud consumption with the introduction of new strategic Cloud Infrastructure and Hosted PBX solutions, as well as support for  Microsoft Office 365 Syndication and Hyper-V Cloud. It is also increasing its investment in facilitating APS-enabled solutions to accelerate ISVs’ ability to also profit from the cloud.

According to ‘Parallels SMB Cloud Insights’ (U.S. 2010), small and medium business (SMB) cloud consumption has hit the mass adoption curve with the cloud services market valued at $10.6 billion in 2010.  This market opportunity will increase to $28.6 billion and small businesses with fewer than 100 employees are the foundation of this market. They account for over 80% of the total market spending and over 95% of all U.S. SMBs.

“SMBs cloud consumption has hit the wide adoption curve and driving a sea change in the cloud industry,” said Birger Steen, CEO of Parallels. “They are demanding a trusted, full service provider to deliver the integrated and complete portfolio of IT services they need. Today, there aren’t many that can provide the full service offering or keep up with the increasing expectations from their customers.  Partnering is the only way service providers will meet the growing needs of SMB and stay competitive.” Read more

ParallelsWeb Hosting ToolsHERNDON, Va. – Virtualization and automation leader Parallels, today announced that BTR Associates has selected Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to deploy and manage their hosted virtual desktop offerings.
