OVHcloud has announced a new drive to recruit additional partners in the microservices sector.

Driven by heightened demand for its cloud-native solutions such as Kubernetes and Rancher, the OVHcloud team is specifically looking to partner with organisations offering value-added services that can build on its existing IaaS and managed Kubernetes offerings.

“With cloud’s growing maturity, many mid-sized organisations are looking at how cloud-native technologies can drive their businesses forward,” said David Devine, Partner Programme Manager, OVHcloud. “We can provide a solid, innovative, sustainable infrastructure base and managed PaaS solutions but are looking for more partners to help solve specific customer needs.”

Microservices allow customers to manage individual application components more easily, isolate faults, move and deploy apps more easily, and in many cases, improve security. However, according to the latest Stack Overflow study, proficiency in Docker (37%) and Kubernetes (24%) are the top two most wanted developer skills, so channel partners that can offer microservices expertise are well-placed to help customers overcome skills gaps.

“Due to our rapid growth in the microservices space we are keen to partner with channel organisations that are already offering microservices consultancy and value-added services, or those who are starting to expand into these areas and are looking for an infrastructure partner,” concluded Devine. “We offer an IaaS and PaaS portfolio with a compelling performance-price ratio, and a commitment to open standards. We don’t compete with our channel partners, and we know them all as people, so can bring a truly collaborative approach to market.”

The OVHcloud Partner Programme offers a variety of benefits to channel partners, including, predictable and transparent pricing, training, low minimum contract durations, access to market development funds, certification, co-marketing opportunities, deal registration, discounts and a dedicated account manager (dependent upon partnership level). Partners also benefit from OVHcloud’s portfolio of secure, sustainable and sovereign cloud products, many of which are available to customers within minutes.
