Cloud-based IT delivery automation platform provider OS33 has launched a Quick Start Program. The program is designed to give MSPs a leg up when moving their business to a totally hosted environment. OS33 gives partners a hosted, branded demo environment and sales and marketing materials, and lets them take it from there. Here are some details:

The OS33 cloud platform is already MSP-focused, with the ability to provision and deploy cloud servers and applications to thousands of end-users, the company claims. The goal of the MSP Quick Start Program, according to OS33's press release, is to accelerate MSP transitions to cloud business with a turnkey solution.

Apart from the cloud platform, the Quick Start Program sounds like a traditional IT partner program, with training, sales tools, SLAs and enhanced support for service providers who sign up. It's also worth noting that OS33 provides volume licensing agreements with cloud solution vendors including VMware, Citrix and Microsoft.

MSPmentor reported earlier in December that OS33 is looking for MSP partners. And this announcement seems to indicate the company is taking the search seriously.
