Who is Softsource? From SMB to enterprise, introducing the Kiwi company that does it all

13 Nov 17

When it comes to hybrid cloud, Softsource firmly believes that one size does not fit all.

And that’s especially obvious in the Kiwi company’s entrada Hybrid IaaS solution, a highly available, managed multi-cloud platform, delivering Infrastructure-as-a-Service to SMBs and enterprises.

Entrada gives Kiwi businesses the flexibility to consume a mix of cloud platforms while only dealing with a single, local partner.

Softsource can advise, architect and facilitate the best solution for your specific business needs and requirements.

It’s built on a locally deployed and automated Software Defined Network (SDN) on New Zealand’s 1st Microsoft Azure Certified for Hybrid Cloud Data Centre platform.

Incorporating a mix of local cloud and Azure hosted virtual machines on demand, businesses can move applications from on-premise to private cloud or public cloud with Microsoft Azure - through one company, and one service agreement.

Softsource makes the transition to hybrid IT simple and seamless - for companies of all sizes.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg for what Softsource does - here are a few quickfire questions with Softsource’s marketing manager, Sandi Dunn, to introduce the Kiwi company that's offering its customers the best of all cloud worlds.

The platform facilitates a “single view” of the customer’s environment, whether that’s public and private, with a consistent set of templated controls for managing resources and network attributes, without the user needing to configure, for example, the VPN or network endpoints.
