SHI unveils Cloud Marketplace at Cloud Expo West 2013

Today at Cloud Expo West 2013, SHI unveiled the new SHI Cloud Marketplace, an online portal where customers can securely source, procure, and manage their Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions. In the SHI Cloud Marketplace, customers can research, compare, purchase, and deploy a growing list of cloud offerings from Amazon (Amazon Web Services), Rackspace, Microsoft (Windows Azure), VMware (vCHS), HP Cloud, and SHI Cloud.

The SHI Cloud Marketplace’s comprehensive functionality runs laps around other cloud platforms. Most marketplaces either allow customers to compare services but not purchase them, or purchase services but research them elsewhere. The SHI Cloud Marketplace combines both features while also offering access to SHI’s volume licensing experts for recommendations and compliance assistance.
