nGenx, a cloud services pioneer in the delivery of hosted workspaces, including applications, data, and desktops, today announced a vendor agreement with Virtual Administrator, a nationwide Master MSP focused on assisting VARs and MSPs in the delivery of managed services without the need to build a network operation center (NOC) or allot budget for managed services software. As a result of the partnership with nGenx, the company is providing hundreds of partners throughout North America with the ability to deliver hosted desktops, applications, data, and complete workspaces based on the nGenx nFinityR nWorkspaceT platform.
Beyond traditional MSP aggregators that provide a menu list of services and tools on which to build a business from, Virtual Administrator is a trusted advisor to VARs and MSPs, with historical experience as an MSP that provides value-added services beyond product distribution. The company’s MSP 4.0 vision is to provide its partners with greater options in terms of infrastructure and services with an emphasis on flexibility, simplicity and profitability. The Master MSP provides packaged services complemented by pre- and post-sales support, collateral, and access to the organization’s industry experts and longstanding knowledgebase. With the addition of nGenx nFinity nWorkspace, the company’s service portfolio now includes remote management, backup and recovery, networking, and virtual workspaces. Virtual Administrator selected nGenx because of the company’s longevity in hosted workspaces and its highly automated, wizard-driven workspace as a service solution.
“nFinityR nWorkspaceT is the foundational technology behind our MSP 4.0 strategy as it provides an open cloud architecture that alleviates the need to purchase, manage, and maintain data center infrastructure,” said Chris Amori, Founding Partner, Virtual Administrator. “The solution’s ability to optimize customer applications regardless of location for access on desktops, laptops, tablets, or smartphones provides real value for customers seeking agile computing options.”
According to market research firm Strategy Analytics, “The global mobile workforce is set to increase from 1.32 billion in 2014, accounting for 37.4% of the global workforce, to 1.75 billion in 2020, accounting for 42.0% of the global workforce. Globalization will continue to drive the growth of mobile office workers in all regions as executives, consultants, sales & field professionals, and other mobile professionals of multinational corporations proliferate.”
The trend toward mobility is driving the need for more flexible workspaces that offer enhanced access while providing a more secure platform for organizational data. nGenx nFinity nWorkspace is the ideal complement, which includes all the necessary layers to deliver a full-featured mobile workspace to end customers. This includes virtual desktops, cloud-enabled applications, and an integrated solution for data – nFinityR Drive 2.0. The service simplifies IT, is delivered from Tier 4 enterprise class data centers, and is managed on-demand via a single pane-of-glass control panel. For IT service providers, this reduces the time, complexity, and headaches associated with building and managing the infrastructure required to deliver a hosted workspace.
“It is clear to the industry’s leading MSPs that workspace as a service solutions will see increasing demand as businesses realize the productivity gains and control over IT expenditures,” said Max Pruger, chief sales officer, nGenx. “Virtual Administrator is at the forefront of IT thought leaders who understand the opportunity so it is no surprise why the operation they have built continues to grow and prosper. We look forward to the mutual success of both organizations in 2016.”
