Toronto, Canada, June 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Tangentia today announced that it expanded its 10+ year relationship with IBM to include cloud services from SoftLayer, an IBM Company. SoftLayer joined IBM as a cloud infrastructure provider through an acquisition in July 2013, and it has since formed the foundation of IBM’s wide-ranging cloud portfolio. With an agreement initially for the U.S. and Canada, Tangentia will now be able to help customers accelerate the development of their cloud strategies with a scalable, secure base for the delivery of cloud services, spanning IBM's middleware and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions.
"Tangentia brings a strong passion for the cloud, that will help IBM middleware and SaaS customers evolve to better meet the needs of an ever-changing world," said Vijay Thomas, Managing Partner, Tangentia Inc. “Tangentia is uniquely positioned to help customers create, identify and capture SoftLayer opportunities based on our development of proprietary cloud offerings like our Tangentia Commerce Gateway(TCG), and deep expertise in IBM software and technologies. Tangentia’s team of more than 50 IBM-dedicated specialists in the United States, Canada & India coupled with our extensive services team, is poised and ready to work with customers to help them leverage the tremendous cloud market opportunity.”
SoftLayer will enhance Tangentia’s portfolio and delivery of high-performance services. The combination of SoftLayer’s distributed local data centers and global network allows customers to place their data where and when it is required, as well as enable them to consolidate or aggregate data as needed. SoftLayer’s network architecture further allows partners to optimize global performance for their customers by using a private network and not subjecting them to public networks and the Internet.
Customers will benefit from Tangentia CloudUp, the company’s approach to helping customers move their businesses to the cloud, as well as the extensive experience and knowledge base of the Tangentia Global Services(TCG) teams. Tangentia has proven technical expertise to assess and deliver optimal public, private or hybrid cloud solutions that best suit business partners’ and their customers' needs.
“We look forward to working with Tangentia as they are our preferred IBM Business Partner to explore how we could take our IBM software stack to the cloud,” said Dominic Leblanc, a Tangentia customer in Canada with a full IBM stack of Middleware implemented on-premise at the moment. “Tangentia has a proven record of bringing solutions built on software, services and hardware to a global customer base. With the addition of SoftLayer to Tangentia’s portfolio, we look forward to being able to rely on a single reliable partner for end-to-end cloud implementation.”
