New MSP partner expands cloud consumption model to Eastern Europe.
HyperGrid, Enterprise Cloud-as-a-Service leader, has appointed Easy Holding as it’s Hungarian dedicated Managed Service Provider (MSP) following the successful use of HyperGrid’s platform in developing its EasyCloud offering.
Easy Holding, based in Budapest, used HyperGrid’s infrastructure platform to help develop its EasyCloud service. EasyCloud is a fully Microsoft certified cloud infrastructure, run in conjunction with Microsoft’s Azure Pack. Easy Holding is the first Hungarian IT provider to get a Microsoft’s certification for its private cloud offering. The Azure Pack portal runs directly through HyperGrid’s infrastructure, underpinning the entire offering.
“We worked in partnership with HyperGrid to realise our EasyCloud product solution. They were great to work with and we had our own dedicated technical expert from HyperGrid who oversaw the complete development of the EasyCloud supporting infrastructure,” said Tibor Bagi, CTO at Easy Holding. “HyperGrid’s cloud platform has allowed us to bring its consumption-based pricing model to our Hungarian partners and clients and help them realise the true benefits of a flexible cloud approach.”
EasyCloud is designed to run virtual desktops (with Citrix), as well as Oracle and SQL databases and file services all as-a-service supported by the HyperGrid platform. The consumption models offered by HyperGrid ensure that users are only paying for what they use and are not subject to typical vendor lock-in as is the case with many legacy and public cloud based infrastructures.
“Our work with HyperGrid has already been a success and our EasyCloud offering has been picked up by a variety of industries here in Hungary. The ability to offer our clients a purpose built, fully integrated cloud stack that doesn’t lock them in to one specific offering for several years is a unique solution that promises to change the way IT is consumed,” concluded Bagi.
Easy Holding delivers IT services to the Hungarian government, hospitality, healthcare and manufacturing sectors.
