Legal-as-a-Service and IaaS expand KOMSA Cloud Services

vom 15.03.2018

KOMSA is expanding its cloud services for system house partners through a cooperation with the law firm RESMEDIA. Legal-as-a-Service makes it easier for system houses to conclude legally compliant and data protection compliant contracts with their customers for KOMSA Cloud Services products for end customers. In addition, KOMSA Cloud Services will receive another module: gridscale supplements its offering with Infrastructure-as-a-Service.

KOMSA Cloud Services offers trade partners cloud-based solutions for resale to end customers. Legally binding contracts between the system house and its business customers are the prerequisite for the sale of these cloud solutions, but these are a challenge for the individual entrepreneur. In order to support the system house partners in this, the law firm RESMEDIA will offer standardized contracts in the future. It is specialized in IT and e-commerce law as well as in intellectual property law.

From the beginning of April 2018, RESMEDIA will equip the solutions offered in KOMSA Cloud Services with end customer contracts that the system house partners can use towards their customers. As clients of the law firm, the system houses have access to current contracts on a subscription basis. "With this cooperation, we are removing a barrier for our sales partners because we make it easier for them to create legally compliant contracts for the cloud business with their end customers," says Thomas Heidbreder, Team Manager Cloud Services KOMSA Kommunikation Sachsen AG, about the advantages of the cooperation. The service will initially be launched under contracts for Alcatel Rainbow and Unify Circuit.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service of gridscale

KOMSA Cloud Services now markets the hosting platform of gridscale. The Cologne-based company offers cloud servers, cloud storage and network resources as infrastructure-as-a-service. As the only provider in Europe, gridscale successfully positions itself alongside pure infrastructure-as-a-service with complementary platform-as-a-service offerings for load balancers, firewalls, object storages, databases and key-value stores.

System houses can book these products via KOMSA Cloud Services, for example to host applications for their business customers and provide their own offers such as telephone systems from the cloud, web servers or backup services. The required infrastructure is assembled in a few seconds via drag & drop and is flexibly scalable. gridscale offers an availability of 100 percent and is suitable both for the permanent, reliable operation of IT infrastructure and for a very high computing load that is only required for a limited time.

"Infrastructure-as-a-Service is becoming increasingly important for our trading partners and their customers. gridscale is an ideal partner for us, enabling us to offer system houses tailor-made and easy-to-use solutions. In addition, gridscale is backed by an innovative team that puts its heart and soul into driving the topic of infrastructure-as-a-service and implementing solutions with us," explains Thomas Heidbreder.
