October 9, 2012— eZuce Inc, the leading global provider of cloud-based communications and collaboration solutions for large enterprises, today announces its expansion via several key strategic partnerships with leading technology providers including Amazon Web Services, VMware, and Red Hat enhancing its virtualized communication solutions portfolio. eZuce has officially entered into three premium technology partner programs and is now recognized as a:
- Amazon Web Services Technology Partner
- VMware Technology Alliance Partner
- Red Hat Solution Provider Partner
As a member of the AWS Technology Partner community, eZuce will be marketing its openUC™ (now called Uniteme) solution to enterprises by engaging with AWS certified partners. The AWS Technology Partner Network is one of the most prestigious closed cloud networks, and acceptance into the program marks eZuce’s growth as the premier leader in cloud based communications and collaboration solutions. In addition, eZuce has being recognized by Amazon as being among the first AWS Partners ever to gain public designation as a Standard Technology Partner, enabling eZuce to deliver its openUC™ solution as a Communications as a Service (CaaS) offering to customers globally.
The VMware TAP program helps technology vendors integrate their products with VMware virtualization software and deliver timely, joint solutions to mutual customers. The VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program enables eZuce to include its openUC™ solution in the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX) – an online, self-service, virtualization marketplace that enables customers to discover, evaluate, and rate partner products and solutions. eZuce openUC™ can now be offered to enterprises as a cloud-based solution powered by VMware virtualization technology. Through its virtualized communications offering, eZuce can now deliver a complete virtual Unified Communications infrastructure to users, with the lowest overall costs of any industry solution, simplified IT management, and streamlined administration delivering a higher return on investment and improved user experience.
The Red Hat Solution Provider program provides an opportunity for eZuce openUC™ to enhance the value of Red Hat solutions by combining our open source Unified Communications technology expertise with Red Hat’s fully open source virtualization platform. This pairing will enable record-breaking performance and scalability, which has led in most installations to a reduction in overall hardware required by up to 80%, reducing a company’s carbon footprint, cutting IT costs, and helping to reduce bandwidth issues in virtualization. The Linux-enabled openUC ™ solution also provides comprehensive security, and the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in its class. eZuce openUC™ is optimized for Red Hat Linux environments with its SIP Services Oriented Architecture (SSOA) which runs on standard RHEL 6 or CentOS 6 Linux distributions, installing and upgrading using standard Linux package management.
“Strengthening our relationships with these strategic business partners helps eZuce gain more visibility in the enterprise marketplace and enhance the impact of our virtualized communications solutions. We believe that eZuce openUC is a great compliment to the technology capabilities of Amazon Web Services, VMware, and Red Hat as evidenced by our recent program acceptance, and we’re poised to deliver this message to customers jointly through our new partnerships.”
