TAMPA, Fla., April 5, 2017  -- DSM Technology Consultants is delighted to partner with HPE Cloud 28+ to exhibit at this year's Channel Partners show at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, April 10th – 13th.  In 2016, DSM was the first US member to join Cloud 28+, which boasts over 400 members globally.  DSM and HPE's Cloud 28+ will be part of the cloud computing labs on the expo floor demonstrating DSM's multi-cloud approach, along with HPE's cloud community marketplace.  Together with HPE's Cloud 28+, DSM is taking cloud to the next level to develop, enable, and support multi-faceted IT environments.

The DSM Cloud is built on enterprise grade HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) gear and offers a convenient, single pane of glass to manage workloads on premise, in DSM's cloud (private and virtual private) and in the public clouds. DSM's Cloud portal features an end user orchestration engine that allows customers the ability to have complete control of their IT environments. The DSM Cloud allows the user the ability to automate and manage virtual machines using both ESX (VMWare) & KVM (OpenStack) as well as Docker containers.  This functionality is conveniently managed all within a single environment. 

DSM offers five core managed solutions to complement its hybrid cloud offerings, all geared to support businesses on their cloud journey.  The five offerings include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Security as a Service (SECaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Data Protection as a Service DPaaS, and Managed IT Services (MS).   All of them being conveniently supported by a professional services team that helps clients navigate their cloud journey from current state to desired state.

Cloud28+ is an open community of Cloud Service Providers, Cloud Resellers, ISVs, Systems Integrators and government entities dedicated to accelerating enterprise cloud adoption. 

"With the expansion of HPE's Cloud 28+ to North America, we are proud to be the first member in what promises to be a new trend for Cloud service providers," said Matt Sanders – National Director of Channel Sales.  "This is an open, federated ecosystem in which we can accelerate cloud adoption around the world, yet also lets us focus on our local customer's solutions and provide enterprise- grade services to meet their needs."

About Cloud 28+

To meet this challenge of increasing business cloud services and providing new business opportunities for local cloud service providers in Europe and now North America, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise has initiated the Cloud28+ program.

Cloud28+ is a federation of Service Providers, Resellers, Independent Software Vendors(ISVs), and government entities coming together for information exchange, business development and providing an online Service Hub of trusted cloud services and enterprise apps – a "Cloud of Clouds," made in Europe and secured locally.

By connecting their own catalogues or clouds of applications, service providers in the community can offer end customers a broader range of applications, while expanding their own geographic reach. In turn, customers can search for cloud applications according to workload requirements, geographic location and price. The central cloud repository provides end customers with a set framework for security and terms and conditions, while they can gain quality of service and adherence to native market conditions by selecting a local IT partner of their choice. 

Cloud28+ remains open to all vendors and service providers, while easing interoperability issues, especially in the App Center.
