Ingram Micro Inc. (IM) has made cloud services provider (CSP) dinCloud's offerings available to the company's North American channel partners via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, enabling value-added resellers (VARs), managed services providers (MSPs) and system integrators (SIs) to distribute dinCloud sevices.

Both companies said Ingram Micro partners can now offer dinCloud hosted servers, in addition to also providing dinCloud business provisioning in the cloud, where customer applications, desktops, servers, and data are co-located in a secure, virtual private data center, aiming to improve efficiencies, performance, and time to market, while simplifying IT infrastructure management.

The company's cloud management platform, dinManage, will be included as a value-add to give customers control of their IT infrastructure, enabling customers to configure, upgrade, downgrade, add or remove servers, and have command line access.

"dinCloud’s server is very complementary to the hosted desktop service from dinCloud that we currently offer to our growing base of channel partners," said Ingram Micro North America Managed Services and Cloud Computing VP Renee Bergeron, in a prepared statement.

dinServer is available in monthly and annual subscriptions, in addition to special promotions, to Ingram Micro partners.
