SingleHop Announces New Partnership with Master Agent Telecom Brokerage, Inc. (TBI)

Leading global provider of hosted IT infrastructure expands outreach by teaming up with one of nation's largest telecommunication Master Agents

CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SingleHop, a dedicated server and cloud hosting company that offers highly scalable, automated, on-demand infrastructure services to both end-users and resellers, today announced a new partnership with one of the nation's largest telecommunication Master Agents, Telecom Brokerage, Inc (TBI). Based in Chicago, TBI offers a one-stop source for unbiased industry advice and the most aggressive pricing on telecom services from major providers of voice, internet, data, mobility, cloud, and managed services.

Founded in 2006, SingleHop pioneered the global Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) movement by enabling businesses and service providers in the design, deployment, and management of a wide range of Hosted Infrastructure solutions. SingleHop's proprietary automation platform allows organizations to quickly migrate or deploy workloads in the cloud. By integrating its secure global data center footprint, robust remote management toolkit, and industry-leading SLAs, SingleHop helps clients manage their systems, while creating better economic efficiencies.

TBI sales agents partner with TBI to simplify quoting, earn high commissions, and benefit from support by an award-winning back-office. Representing more than 50 industry providers, TBI's contract is one of the most aggressive in telecom, featuring an "Evergreen Clause" that ensures businesses get paid as TBI gets paid, as well as no volume commitments, quotas, or exclusivity obligations.

"We have the highest regards for SingleHop's leadership, their offerings and flexible approach to the market," said Ken Mercer Sr., VP of TBI. "SingleHop's Bare Metal offering is a great first step for those customers looking to move into the cloud. It is a real alternative to colocation, yet without all the costs of managed hosting, and the customer retains complete control and management of their environments via SingleHop's LEAP portal. Attendances for our Cloud Clarity events have been overwhelming. Our Agents want to better understand how to position and sell cloud, and we are convinced that the SingleHop Channel team is one of the strongest in the industry and truly understands the partner community."

TBI helps business leaders grow their company through increased exposure and representation, insulation from revenue commitments, certification requirements, and access to the industry's best rates, as well as trouble-free provisioning of accounts.

"As one of the largest and most successful Master Agents in the country, TBI understands that Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings are a natural next step and complimentary offering to their agents' strong network infrastructure sales," said Mark A. Mercado, VP Channel Sales of SingleHop. "TBI partners have some of the best solution selling skills in the industry. It is not about trying to sell cloud or any particular service. It is about understanding what a customer is looking to accomplish with their business and realizing that the network and cloud are integral in making that happen. SingleHop is committed to helping TBI partners provide a holistic solution, thus delivering more value and deeper relationships with their customers."

SingleHop's global presence, high-caliber security and redundancy, extensive automation, and onsite engineers have made the company a rising star in the IaaS industry. Ranked #3 in Crain's Fast Fifty, a definitive listing of the Chicago area's fastest growing companies, SingleHop was recently named to the CRN 500, an annual listing of the top IT channel providers in North America.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.
