Web Hosting ServicesMercer Island, WA – ThinkGrid, the world’s first cloud enablement platform vendor for the channel, today announced an agreement with Tech Data Corporation (NASDAQ: TECD), one of the world’s largest wholesale distributors of technology products. With this agreement in place, ThinkGrid’s class-leading cloud services, including Hosted Virtual Desktops, Virtual Servers, Hosted E-mail and ground-breaking control panel, will be distributed through Tech Data’s network of over 60,000 value added resellers (VARs) in the United States.

ThinkGrid’s success has been in building innovative cloud solutions that allow partners and customers the flexibility to design, build and launch business services that solve specific problems. ThinkGrid’s Windows7 Hosted Virtual Desktop, a fully isolated virtual machine, is the most advanced and secure solution on the market. It allows users to install any application, fully customize their experience, offering the tightest integration of existing cloud and on-premise computing. Complementing the Hosted Virtual Desktop solution is the HVDI Management Suite, the world’s first tool to enable IT administrators or Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to take control of important management tasks in the cloud for their Hosted Virtual Desktop infrastructure.

ThinkGrid’s Virtual Servers represent the next generation of server environment, replacing the conventional concept of the dedicated server. They can be set up in less than five minutes and allow businesses to manage the precise power and space they use, as well as make changes at any time without capital expenditure or the costs associated with moving from one server to another. ThinkGrid’s Hosted E-mail solution allows businesses to use Microsoft Exchange with no on-premise technology investment and provides enhanced redundancy, anti-spam, anti-virus and ease of management. All of ThinkGrid’s Hosted Virtual Desktops, Virtual Servers and Hosted Email solutions are delivered with the highest security and availability from ten secure data centers geographically dispersed around the world.

“Our StreamOne partnership with ThinkGrid reconfirms Tech Data’s commitment to provide our customers with innovative software that will continue to help them meet their business goals,” said Stacy Nethercoat, Vice President of Software Product Marketing for Tech Data. “By working on a unique enablement platform and offering a complete array of cloud-based IT services our network of resellers are able to provide business value and an innovative solution to end-users.”

Rob Lovell, CEO at ThinkGrid, said: “Our partnership with Tech Data and the unique cloud offering should spell a great opportunity for the U.S. channel to engage in a new era of cloud-based IT for small and medium businesses. We believe the channel is central to the success of cloud computing. However, resellers need to be able to change to a value-based, cloud-led business as demand for this technology increases. The partnership will combine Tech Data’s extensive global reach with our cloud technology and experience, providing resellers with the IT infrastructure and ongoing support they need to enable this transformation. The flexibility of the IT infrastructure offered means that the solution will be scalable, so that end users can add or take away certain services each month to suit their changing business requirements.”
