Cloud Distributor Pax8 Streamlines Operations

Cloud-focused distributor Pax8 on Monday unveiled new processes, organizational enhancements, roles and a key executive all aimed at streamlining its operations.

The 5-year-old Denver-based company offers a curated line card of cloud offerings to its 1,100 partners. Products offered from Pax8 come from BAE Systems, BitTitan, CloudJumper, DataMAPt, Double-Take, IBM MaaS360, Infrascale, Microsoft, ProfitBricks, Symantec and Veritas. Office 365 is one of the distributor's anchor products, and a new relationship announced last month with BitTitan centering on the MigrationWiz technology and MSPComplete deepened Pax8's focus on Microsoft Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs).

Pax8's moves Monday included naming John Walters to the new position of vice president of Service Operations, with responsibilities for directing service delivery and technical support. Walters' resume includes positions at Wipro, Level 3 Communications, AT&T, Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies and Avaya.

The company is implementing a companywide project management tool to help with departmental interaction to free up resources for partner enablement and creating a new entry-level, marketing position, called Cadets, dedicated to partner recruitment.

In a statement, Ryan Walsh, senior vice president of Partner Solutions, said, "The addition of John and the new processes we have put into place will help us further enable our partners to gain new leads, add monthly recurring revenue and ensure they are getting the highest level of support."
