Cube52 is a new private and hybrid cloud solution headed up by Matthew Munson and Robin Ellis, who between them have around 25 years’ experience in the data centre industry. The new offerings are based on the Microsoft Cloud OS vision and the Cisco/Netapp ‘Flexpod’ architecture to provide Cube52’s customers with a standardised, flexible cloud infrastructure that can support a variety of workloads and applications.
The Cube52 platforms can be white labelled to enable the partner community to build and deploy its own branded applications on an infrastructure that can scale; from dedicated private cloud to fully elastic public cloud. Cube52’s technology is centred on its intuitive self-service cloud portal that provides a single point of access, configuration and control 24/7 from which resellers can focus on the workloads, applications and solutions that will drive their business forward.
Munson and Ellis have reinvested £3m from the sale of BlueSquare Data, the data centre based provider of colocation services which they sold in 2010, and spent last two years developing Cube52. The team has invested heavily in technology innovation to offer the partner community an extra layer of credibility for them to add value to their client base and expand their cloud offerings.
‘Resellers have to broaden the scope of their offerings for their increasingly cloud savvy customer base,’ explained Matthew Munson, CTO, Cube52. ‘We are at the forefront of that mission, by allowing resellers to white label Cube52’s offerings, so that they can in turn, offer scalable on premise, private and hybrid cloud solutions to their own customers under their own brand, which is totally portable with no tie ins. Our clients have complete control over the appearance, policy and support, along with access to infrastructure. The partner community has thus far been slow to truly embrace the cloud because of the barriers of entry. Cube52 removes these barriers and allows resellers to offer a branded, best-of-breed private and hybrid cloud solution to its client base.’
