Solution Brief

The CloudHealth Partner Program

Program Overview

The CloudHealth Partner Program is designed for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to extend their service portfolio, boost profitability and differentiate their offerings through enterprise-class cloud management services.

As cloud usage grows and environments become increasingly complex, keeping pace with the rate of change in this market can often seem impossible. MSPs ease this burden by playing a critical role in helping to properly manage and scale a cloud program.

The power of the CloudHealth platform enables you to manage multiple customer accounts with many services in one console and automate the provisioning of client statements. It provides the ability to isolate customer usage and cost for your internal reporting needs and set unique pricing, while giving branded access to the platform as a value-added service to your customers. Combined with the Partner Platform, the CloudHealth Partner Program puts you on a path to success, equipping you with the resources to improve efficiency, monetize your public cloud business, and increase margins.
