London, UK – 01 January 2019 – Leaseweb UK, a leading hosting and cloud services provider, today announced its partnership with Flexiion MSP to offer UK online small to medium-size enterprises (SMEs) a dedicated and comprehensive cloud infrastructure managed service. This new service will enable these organisations to focus on the core functionality and customer value of their e-commerce platforms, free of the distractions that are part and parcel of routine cloud infrastructure management.
In a rapidly evolving digital world, innovative, ambitious online SMEs focus on creating value via their e-commerce platforms, not in the underlying cloud infrastructure. Recognition of this management imperative has provided the rationale for the partnership, which combines Leaseweb UK’s top-of-the-range internet infrastructure until OS level with Flexiion MSP’s fully managed cloud infrastructure service. The result is private and public cloud hosting with NOC services, operating system and system application management.
Eltjo Hofstee, Managing Director of Leaseweb UK Ltd, said: “For over 20 years, Leaseweb has been a leading provider of hosting and cloud services to a wide range of organisations. In recent months we’ve seen an emerging opportunity amongst smaller, medium size businesses looking to implement a cloud-based hosted infrastructure strategy combined with a managed service offering that will enable them to reduce the burden of day-to-day routine cloud infrastructure management. By partnering with Flexiion MSP we are able to address this market need and deliver a comprehensive managed service that offers an appropriate and affordable option for UK online SMEs looking to optimise the way they manage their cloud infrastructure.”
James Osborn, CEO of Flexiion MSP, explained: “Many UK SMEs are today building and running ‘always-on’ e-commerce platforms. Their core business focus, therefore, is the customer functionality and value within the e-commerce solution, not the underlying infrastructure on which it’s run. At Flexiion MSP we specialise in providing these types of ambitious companies with a personalised managed service, so they can get the cloud-based hosted infrastructure mix that works for them when they need it, but without the ongoing, resource-intensive management required to achieve it.”
