Swiss broadliner ALSO and its Russian counterpart Treolan have signed a partnership covering Platform-as-a-Services (PaaS), which will enable Treolan to offer its customers a wide range of SaaS, IaaS as well as DaaS services in Russia. Treolan is part of the LANIT Group, which in 2017 generated a turnover of €2.1 billion. With this new partnership, the sixth that ALSO has signed since 2015, Treolan’s channel partners will be able to manage the seats of their end-customers and develop, run, and manage applications without the complexity typically involved in maintaining an adequate infrastructure. Treolan is starting immediately with the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, leveraging new, vertical focused offerings and creating new, regional access for ALSO’s vendor partners.
“We have strategically expanded our Platform-as-a-Service offering across various geographies over the last years. With this globally available Consumptional Business model, we already manage two million seats in our platform and have potential access to 10 million seats. As a result of our partnership with Treolan, now customers in Russia will benefit from a state-of-the-art platform and dramatically reduced complexity. This is the first step in our partnership with Treolan and I am looking forward to working together with the team in Russia”, said Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO.
“This partnership with ALSO is a game-changing opportunity for Treolan. The ALSO Cloud Marketplace helps us reach our partners more efficiently and provide unbeatable service to our more than 2900 channel partners and their end customers. On top of the Microsoft CSP program, which we are launching immediately, we will be ready for the new software subscription program which will be released by Microsoft this summer”, said Grigoriy Sverdlikov, CEO of Treolan.
This announcement follows a series of partnerships that ALSO has entered into since 2015. In the spring of 2017, ALSO announced partnerships with Bezeq International and Intcomex, expanding the ALSO Cloud Marketplace platform reach to Israel as well as South America and the Carribean. These followed an earlier announcement in the fall of 2016, when ALSO agreed on a partnership with Innovix Distribution to make the ALSO Cloud Marketplace available to Innovix’s channel partners starting in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. Earlier in June of the same year, ALSO signed a partnership with Logicom to provide the marketplace platform to partners in 13 countries in Southern Europe and the Middle East. In December 2015, ALSO and Westcoast had agreed on a cooperation to bring the platform to Westcoast customers in the UK and Ireland.
