An Irish cloud computing company aims to recruit up to 25 resellers to roll out its hosted virtual desktop service in the Republic. Let’s Operate eliminates the need for servers by providing companies with email, file access and business software via the cloud.
Founded in 2008 by former UCD Quinn School of Business lecturer in Information Systems, David Owens, Let’s Operate has the exclusive rights to distribute Nasstar’s hosted desktop service in the Republic of Ireland. Nasstar is ranked in the top three cloud service providers (CSPs) in Europe according to Nine Lives Media’s second annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report.
Let’s Operate is following Nasstar’s UK business model in deciding to operate solely in the future through channel vendors. “We view this as a major opportunity for Irish resellers as most SME client companies are now talking about implementing cloud even if they haven’t done it so far”, said David Owens, managing director of Let’s Operate. “Our service, which can be own branded by the reseller, will be a valuable addition to their offerings.”
The Let’s Operate hosted desktop service can be implemented from €39 per user per month which includes free Microsoft Windows and Office upgrades. By being hosted outside of the US the service has the benefit of extra data security and privacy as it is not subject to the Patriot Act.
