Why MSPs are Moving Corporate Clients from VMware to ProfitBricks


If you’re like most companies, you know virtualization can help minimize the number of bulky, on-site servers required to keep your business moving. But did you know that Gartner expects cloud-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) revenue to grow 25% per year through 2019?

This staggering prediction makes more sense when taken in context. As you’re probably aware, VMware is the top vendor that corporations choose when virtualizing their data centers. However, as of 2015, 85% of workloads virtualized using VMware hadn’t made it to the cloud.

Moving to the cloud can be scary—especially for corporations trying to control costs. First generation public clouds are complicated, expensive, and difficult to effectively migrate over to. For these reasons, corporations have chosen to delay migrations, but they can’t hold off much longer.

Gartner says that by 2020, a corporate no-cloud policy will be virtually unheard of. To stay relevant, corporations must move to the cloud. And now that second-generation public cloud technology has arrived, that move doesn’t have to be cumbersome, exorbitantly expensive, or risky.

ProfitBricks is an IaaS solution designed to easily move large storehouses of virtualized data from VMware into the cloud. When you move to the ProfitBricks IaaS solution, you gain more control than you would with a traditional VMware data center solution.

By mimicking the behavior of physical server hardware, ProfitBricks gives you all the flexibility, performance, and control of an on-site data center without any of the space-hogging machinery. And you can’t beat the savings. Some customers report saving as much as 80% by switching to ProfitBricks.

Now is the time to move your VMware-based data centers to ProfitBricks’ public cloud. Here are 3 more reasons why smart MSPs are migrating corporate clients to ProfitBricks’ IaaS solution this year:

  1. Profitable

Now that public cloud technology is robust and flexible enough to be viable for the average corporate user, cost is the primary concern holding them back. ProfitBricks lives up to its name by giving you second-generation public cloud functionality at a fraction of the cost of first generation cloud technology like Amazon’s AWS.

In fact, we’re so confident that you’ll be happy with your decision to move to ProfitBricks IaaS that we offer a price/performance guarantee that’s unheard of in our industry:

“We guarantee that any workload deployed on ProfitBricks will cost less than the same workload running at the same performance level on the IaaS platforms of Amazon, Google or Microsoft.”

  1. Ease of Use
