Managed service providers EACS and Memset today announced a strategic partnership to meet the growing demand for multi-cloud solutions and to provide greater support and data security services.
The two companies have become leading UK cloud providers of choice, working alongside customers to deliver exceptional service, robust security and leading-edge technology. With over 50 years of joint experience of delivering strategic IT solutions to customers and a rich portfolio of cyber-security and managed support, this alliance will allow both parties to further deliver critical IT infrastructure and business transformation programmes.
Kevin Timms, CEO at EACS said: “We have seen a growing interest in public cloud hosting from our customers but also a concern about the perceived negative sides of dealing with hyper-scale provider and integrating them into existing cloud or on premises technology stacks. Memset fills an important gap in our service offer.
“Another key differentiator for us going forward is enhanced security. It is an area that will continue to be a major talking point for the financial services sector in particular, and it will only continue to grow rather than decrease in terms of its importance for our customer base. The partnership will allow us to have a proposition focused very heavily on both physical and logical security, which is very appealing for customers.” Timms concluded.
Nick Craig-Wood, CEO at Memset continued: “Today, we see a maturing understanding amongst business leaders in their use of balanced, multi-cloud strategies. Our focus over the coming period is to make sure that we are well-adjusted to this changing landscape and can support customers on this journey.
“The increasingly multi-cloud approach taken by customers mean that we are broadening our company to include higher grade managed service support, more rounded data security services, all while maintaining our close personal relationships and human-scale, long-term trusted partnerships.” Craig-Wood concluded.
Cloud has rapidly matured over the last five years, and while some successful companies have taken cloud-first strategies, many still struggle with their core business processes when it comes to managing their cloud strategy. This strategic partnership allows both managed service providers to offer a much more integrated service where businesses can have some of their core processes on a public cloud infrastructure, some hosted internally, and perhaps some hosted as a software subscription service.
