ALSO and IONOS: European Champions Bundle Competences
With over eight million contract customers IONOS is Europe's leading provider of cloud infrastructure, cloud services and hosting services while broadliner ALSO is one of Europe's largest technology providers. The two companies are now bundling their competences. ALSO is with immediate effect offering its partners and their customers in all European ALSO countries via the ALSO Cloud Marketplace IONOS's extensive Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) enterprise cloud. Its focus is on customised IT services as required, especially for small and midrange enterprises. "IONOS with its three million-plus SME customers is an ideal partner for further growth in close cooperation with the channel, especially in our small and midrange core end customer segment", says Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding. "IONOS products and solutions are a valuable addition to our own IaaS portfolio, which is now being extended to include the product and service range of a strong European brand. Together we offer via the Marketplace attractive new as-a-service options for our resellers and their customers to take further forward the necessary digitisation of small and midrange businesses in Europe." IONOS (formerly 1&1 IONOS), a specialist in cloud and hosting services, operates ten data centres with 90,000 servers in Europe and the United States, has a powerful network infrastructure and offers perfect-fit solutions for the channel and its customers. That makes IONOS ideally suited to complement the portfolio of ALSO, which is pressing ahead with further expansion of its competence and expertise as a technology provider. "We have specifically chosen ALSO as our first distributor because the technology provider's technically outstanding Marketplace and its international footprint are for us a perfect match", says IONOS CEO Achim Weiß. "Together we can now offer our end customers customised IT services in combination with their trusted on-site IT consultant." Resellers and end customers thereby benefit not only from an extensive portfolio of products and solutions but can also decide, for example, whether they would prefer to source their IaaS services from a provider based in Germany. In addition, both partners deliver a very good price-performance ratio.
IONOS services are available through ALSO cloud marketplaces in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland.
