Partner-Friendly Program Eases Collaboration and Integration of S3-Compatible Enterprise-Grade Cloud Solutions Built on Web3 Technology
Award-Winning Solutions Provider Comet Backup Is Inaugural Partner, Joined by Acronis
Hamburg, Germany – June 01, 2023 – Impossible Cloud, the revolutionary cloud platform that offers decentralized, multi-service cloud solutions, today announced the launch of its Partner Program designed to help partners and resellers seamlessly implement, demo and integrate Impossible Cloud’s efficient, performance-driven solutions into enterprise environments.
The company also announced a number of award-winning global backup solutions providers as alliance partners. These include Comet Backup, an inaugural partner, as well as Acronis. Clients will now be able to use these companies’ fast, secure backup software seamlessly in conjunction with Impossible Cloud’s S3-compatible storage to safeguard data, ensure business continuity and prepare for emergencies.
The program has been developed to support various prospective channel partners – including value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators (SIs), managed service providers (MSPs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) – in their efforts to bring more innovative and profitable solutions to customers leveraging the emerging B2B benefits of web3. These benefits include increased capacity, reduced costs, decreased complexity and improved security compared to traditional cloud providers. The solution also offers a flexible, consumption-based infrastructure enabling MSPs to adjust the storage resources they provide their clients in a manner that is secure, efficient, measurable and reliable.
“VARs and SIs want to increase their average revenue per sale with either higher volume or higher margin,” said Lennart Rother, Director of Growth, Impossible Cloud. “They’re looking for products with a competitive advantage that will provide new routes to market and enable them to offer advantageous pricing without sacrificing quality. Acronis and Comet Backup are ideal launch partners for the partner program; their services are trusted around the globe, are accessible in multiple languages, and - like Impossible Cloud - offer adjustable solutions that scale with growth.”
The new Partner Portal fosters a collaborative space that efficiently connects Impossible Cloud Technology Partners and Channel partners within a comprehensive environment encompassing product details, educational materials, marketing assets and technical assistance. The portal’s Control Console provides a user-friendly interface and dashboards designed to streamline the process and to ease enrollment of new or trial accounts.
“Growing data intensity is feeding the growth and market power of a handful of dominant cloud storage providers,” added Josh Flores, General Manager, Comet Backup. “Impossible Cloud provides an ideal solution for resellers and other partners looking to offer an enterprise-grade alternative with a considerable price advantage. This relationship opens up strong opportunities for us and our clients.”
Impossible Cloud recently announced the general availability of its enterprise-grade, native cloud storage solution delivering all the capabilities of traditional cloud storage along with the key benefits of web3 technology. It is the first decentralized, enterprise-grade cloud for fast, outage-proof, Kubernetes-friendly, AWS S3-compatible object storage, designed to enable switching from web2 via a single line of code and to deliver cost savings of up to 75%. Impossible Cloud’s services can be procured using fiat currencies, eliminating a critical roadblock that has slowed B2B adoption of web3 technologies.
In March the company announced a €7 million seed round co-led by HV Capital and 1kx, joined by Protocol Labs, TS Ventures, and very early Ventures
