Managed services provider adds VDI and Unified Comms following acquisition of Star Technology Services
Claranet, one of Europe’s leading managed service providers, will be showcasing its expanded product portfolio for the first time at Cloud Expo Europe. Cloud Expo is the company’s first UK event since it acquired Star Technology Services late in 2012, creating Europe’s largest mid-tier provider of integrated hosting and network services.
Visitors to the show will find an integrated offering, encompassing Star’s unified communications and hosted desktop services into Claranet’s existing portfolio of managed hosting, network and application services – including Claranet’s multi-award winning Virtual Data Centre service.
Claranet will also speak on two of the hot topics of cloud computing during the show. Michel Robert, Claranet’s UK Managing Director, will be giving a presentation on Return On Investment for Cloud in the keynote theatre at 3pm on 30th January. Robert will discuss how the value of cloud services can be measured across a business, highlighting key findings from Claranet’s second annual survey into cloud adoption and trends. Meanwhile Clive Malcher, Head of Product Development & Technology at Channel 5 will discuss the broadcaster’s approach to ROI and how it assesses the value of their investment in cloud.
Later in the afternoon at 3.35pm, Claranet’s Senior Product Manager, Ben Crouch, will present on delivering desktops and applications successfully in the cloud, in the Cloud Service Providers & Ecosystem theatre, including a customer case study.
Cloud providers are working harder to demonstrate the business value of their services and to provide solutions to real-world problems and pressures, such as security and the Bring Your Own Device phenomenon. With the acquisition of Star, Claranet has added a very valuable product set that will enable us to better meet the unique demands of our customers.”
