Fusepoint Managed Services, a leading provider of infrastructure and IT services, today announced that it has joined the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP). In adopting this program and offering VMware, Fusepoint will now offer managed hosting solutions running on VMware across physical and virtual servers for both large enterprise and small to medium sized businesses, making it one of the first fully-managed service providers in Canada to be authorized.Rest of the story here.
VSPP incorporates a new licensing model that makes the industry-leading VMware Infrastructure suite available to Fusepoint on a per-virtual machine, per-month basis. With this
new program, Fusepoint offers managed infrastructure hosting solutions using VMware to its
customers, improving the management of existing applications and giving customers just-intime
resource allocation and disaster recovery within the solution.
Honestly this is far from a breaking news, what is their differentiated strategy? Are you offering something new?
Although I am beginning to see some dangerous subscription model issues when I read this " on a per-virtual machine, per-month basis".
