Zayo SD-WAN available as a managed or on-premises product

Zayo Group Holdings Inc., a bandwidth infrastructure provider in the U.S. and Europe, is offering SD-WAN as a managed or do-it-yourself product.

The technology, launched this week, lets companies distribute network traffic across MPLS, broadband and Long Term Evolution connections. The product is an extension of Zayo’s fiber-based IP/MPLS backbone offerings for enterprises.

Zayo, based in Boulder, Colo., provides an online portal that companies can use to monitor and modify traffic flows down to the application level. Customers have the option of outsourcing network management to Zayo.

In general, SD-WAN uses software-defined networking concepts to automatically determine the most cost-effective route to and from branch offices, data centers and cloud-based applications. Network operators manage the SD-WAN through a centralized controller.

Zayo’s metro networks

Zayo has a 126,000-mile network that provides metro connectivity to buildings and data centers. The company offers high-capacity dark fiber, Ethernet and other connectivity options, as well as carrier-neutral colocation and cloud infrastructure services in its data centers.

Zayo’s latest product launch was expected. Last November, the company told financial analysts it planned to launch an SD-WAN offering in the first quarter of 2018, according to transcripts from the business site Seeking Alpha.

Zayo is entering a consolidating market of more than 40 vendors. Last year, VMware announced plans to acquire SD-WAN vendor VeloCloud, roughly three months after Cisco completed the purchase of Viptela for $610 million. VMware expects to complete the transaction next month.

The market for SD-WAN technology, infrastructure and services will reach $6 billion by 2020, according to IDC. The research firm expects service providers to account for more than half of the market.

Most of Zayo’s network is located in North America. The company, however, has increased its footprint in the United Kingdom and Europe. In 2014, Zayo acquired Geo Networks, based in London, for an undisclosed sum. Geo provided dark fiber and open-access networks.

Xerox MPS ambitions increase the focus on channel partners

Xerox is pushing its partners in the SMB space to adopt a more mature model of managed print services.

The small and medium-sized business (SMB) market has become a major focus for Xerox in recent years, leading the vendor to up its commitment to its channel partners, which generally work in this customer segment. Xerox believes that managed print services (MPS) in particular is underpenetrated by partners in the SMB market. To help enable channel firms to capture the MPS opportunity, Xerox this year introduced several enablement initiatives, among them the Xerox MPS Accreditation Program that offers training, sales and assessment tools and marketing support, launched in July.

According to Jim Joyce, vice president of managed print services for Xerox’s U.S. channels unit, the SMB space is “a huge market opportunity” for managed print services companies. Citing previous research, he said 54% of the U.S. working population is in the SMB space, with only about 20% of the market penetrated by “true” MPS.

“We have driven more than $30 billion in MPS revenue in our company over the last 10 years in [the large business] space. So … [looking] at the market in SMB, it is twice the size and [lightly] penetrated,” Joyce said.

Xerox MPS: Maturation required

Many partners, however, have yet to embrace a mature Xerox MPS business model, Joyce said, which involves layering additional services and applications, such as security and analytics, on top of a foundational MPS offering. Partners must also take more of a consultative rather than transactional approach toward customers. A true MPS offering should allow a channel firm to “more deeply embed themselves” in their customers’ businesses, he said.

Additionally, the majority of Xerox partners today think of MPS in terms of a “cost per click” model, which “really misses the mark,” he said. Joyce said that some partners are now shifting to more progressive models such as “cost per user” or “cost per seat” per month where customers are given a flat rate for everything they print. He said the SMB space welcomes this kind of predictable model because it allows them to better control and manage costs.

Benchmark Business Solutions, a Xerox partner headquartered in Lubbock, Texas, was one of the first companies to receive Xerox’s Master Elite MPS status through the accreditation program launched this year.

“We are really proud of our staff for going through the curriculum required and qualifications needed to reach that status within Xerox,” said Jeff Horn, CEO and president of Benchmark.

Benchmark serves the SMB space in western Texas and eastern New Mexico, “targeting mom-and-pop businesses all the way up to medium-sized businesses,” and focuses on vertical markets such as K-12 and universities, banking, legal services and government, Horn said. He noted that the company’s PrintSmart MPS practice developed over the last five to seven years and is growing at about 15% year over year. It was a shift from its previous focus on selling and servicing equipment.

“We have tried several different iterations of managed print over the years,” he said. He cited retraining sales staff as one of the most challenging elements of making the transition.

In October, Benchmark acquired TonerTiger, an MPS and IT solutions provider based in Abilene, Texas, which is poised to boost the MPS business further.

Horn said that customers that Benchmark engages are frequently concerned about security. Security is “one of the main driving factors in almost every sale that we come across,” he said, adding that he is happy with the security features that Xerox has built into their products. “The imbedded security that they have within their devices today protects our clients [and] it protects us in being able to provide the best customer service out there.”

MPS meets NASCAR

TUI Total Solutions, an MPS provider based in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., is also satisfied with the security features of Xerox’s products. TUI, which has partnered with Xerox for about four years, recently won equipment and services deals with the International Speedway Corp. and NASCAR. The deal includes an MPS contract at ISC’s Daytona International Speedway facility.

Zach McDonald, CEO of TUI, noted that Xerox products offer many layers to security. “To be able to offer that in with your solutions … is a big deal,” he said.

In addition to initiatives like the Xerox MPS accreditation program, Joyce said that Xerox is moving many of its direct customers to partners. Xerox is the midst of “transferring tens of thousands of active customers to our partners,” he said. He expects this process will continue over the next 12 to 18 months.

Managed Applications are now Generally Available in the Azure Marketplace

I am excited to announce the general availability of Managed Applications in the Azure Marketplace. Managed Applications, an Azure unique offering, enables you to deploy entire applications and empower your partner to fully manage and maintain the application in your environment. This means, a partner like Xcalar, can deliver more than just deployment on a set of VMs. Xcalar can now deliver both the application and a fully operated solution, offering “Ap/Ops.” Partners like Xcalar will also maintain and service the application solution directly in your Azure environment.

This new distribution channel for our partners will change customer expectations in the public cloud. Unlike our competitors, in Azure, a marketplace application can now be much more than just deployment and set-up. Now it can be a fully supported and managed solution. This is a first in the public cloud!

You and your partners have been the inspiration for Azure Managed Applications. We hear from many of our customers looking to transform IT operations, that they need the simplicity of fully managed applications without all the infrastructure hubbub. Furthermore, our partners are seeking opportunities to offer their customers more value by adding service operations to their portfolio. With Managed Applications, you and your partners can achieve these goals. Here are a few of the details of the offering:

  • Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and System Integrators (SIs) can build turnkey cloud solutions using Azure Resource Manager templates. Both the application IP and the underlying pre-configured Azure infrastructure can easily be packaged into a sealed and serviceable solution. This enables “Ap/Ops,” offering both the application and operations together in one package.
  • Customers can deploy these turnkey solutions in their own Azure subscription as a sealed service, which is fully operated and maintained by the partner across the solution lifecycle. In addition, only the minimal level of access is granted, specifically for the sealed solution and its lifecycle operations.
  • The result is a higher quality of service for our customers, fully managed by our partners. Thanks to the sealed and immutable nature of Managed Applications, nothing changes in the application or the infrastructure configuration, unless it is an explicit lifecycle operation by the trusted partner.

Whether these solutions are complex applications that are custom-built and maintained by MSPs or packaged applications delivered and serviced by ISVs, you can focus on what you need to do to accelerate your business transformation without having to worry so much about running someone else’s software. Managed Applications accelerate innovation, even in the most advanced application scenarios, bringing the best of software-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service together.

At Ignite we enabled our partners to deploy and service Managed Applications inside customer owned enterprise service catalogs. With today’s addition of Azure Marketplace as a distribution channel, partners can add value to their marketplace offering by adding lifecycle and support services with an incremental flat monthly fee. Our launch partners are excited and ready to go…

“Azure Managed Applications enables OpsLogix customers to easily deploy and use our solutions without having to undertake on-going maintenance and servicing complexities.”
Vincent de Vries, CEO, OpsLogix

“Azure Managed Applications allows Xcalar Data Platform to provide a higher quality of service and help forge stronger partnerships with our customers. Enterprise applications, Azure cloud infrastructure, and production operations can now be packaged into a single solution.”
Vikram Joshi Co-founder and CEO, Xcalar

“We’re delighted to be bringing the power and simplicity of Cisco Meraki cloud networking to customers using Microsoft Azure. Our two companies both share a passion for better IT, and by leveraging our powerful Auto VPN and SD-WAN features we can seamlessly connect users to the resources they depend on every day.”
Raviv Levi, Senior Product Line Manager, Cisco Meraki

Go ahead, give it a try. We would love to hear from you about your experience with Azure Managed Applications and our partner solutions. Leave us feedback at the user voice channel or the comments section below.

More innovation for our partners is on the horizon, so stay tuned! And, do not forget to check Gaurav’s blog for a closer look under the hood on how this works.

See ya around,

Corey Sanders
