Softchoice first to offer Dell and Microsoft Hybrid Cloud solution

TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2015 /CNW/ - Softchoice, a leading IT solutions and managed services provider, is pleased to announce it is the first provider in North America to offer the Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft CPS. Jointly engineered by Dell and Microsoft, the new system simplifies and accelerates cloud adoption, allowing organizations to realize the scalability and elasticity of cloud and enable IT to better deliver against business objectives.

"Softchoice was selected as an early adopter of the Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft CPS because of our deep expertise delivering Microsoft, Dell and hybrid IT solutions," said Mark Connell, Director Business Development, Datacenter at Softchoice. "No-one is better positioned than Softchoice to drive the implementation of a hybrid cloud system that integrates the best of Microsoft and Dell into one cohesive, agile infrastructure."

Within almost every organization's IT infrastructure there are workloads that belong in the cloud and workloads that are better suited to remain on-premises. This new system breaks through hybrid cloud adoption barriers by delivering an integrated solution that is secure, reliable and cost-effective, while offering seamless integration with Microsoft's Azure services. It's the industry's first integrated, modular hybrid cloud solution, offering unparalleled hybrid cloud governance, control and policy-based automation for Azure and other cloud environments.

"When delivering Microsoft solutions, Softchoice wants to ensure we bring the best fit to our clients' needs," said Craig McQueen, Director of Softchoice's Microsoft Practice. "The Dell Hybrid Cloud System for Microsoft CPS fills the gap for businesses that need a hybrid environment and we are delighted to be leading this conversation with our customers."
