Sandler Partners Joins Alpheus Communications’ Channel Program

Alpheus Communications, a leading provider of Texas metro-regional fiber and networking solutions, has teamed with master agent Sandler Partners as it expands in Texas, where Alpheus can provide metro Ethernet service in 30 days or less to about 94,000 locations. Alpheus will help Sandler Partners deliver sophisticated networking solutions for voice, data and video transport, and connectivity to approximately 20 key data centers in Texas.

Alpheus delivers high-value products, including high-bandwidth transport, SIP trunking and dedicated Internet access service with symmetrical bandwidth upstream and downstream. Unlike offerings from other providers, Alpheus’ symmetrical data services create a reliable, high-quality data connection required for businesses to get optimal performance from SaaS solutions, cloud-based computing, and remotely hosted IT infrastructure and platforms.

In addition to the Alpheus portfolio of flexible networking solutions, Sandler Partners was attracted by Alpheus’ approach to customer care.

“Alpheus is very competitive on the pricing front, which is important given the current economic climate,” said Alan Sandler, founder and managing partner of Sandler Partners. “We’re already working with Alpheus to deliver solutions to customers in Texas, and the Alpheus team has been responsive throughout the process – from quick quotes to fast installs.”

By working with Alpheus, agents can realize immediate benefits, including fast installations and quick time-to-commission enabled by the flexibility of the Alpheus metro network and its fiber assets across Texas. Customers who choose Alpheus services can efficiently connect business locations throughout the state, and beyond, with a variety of network solutions such as MPLS and E-LAN. Likewise, Alpheus offers a number of transport options, including Ethernet, TDM and fiber.

“We are pleased to work with Alan Sandler and his senior carrier consultants because our shared commitment to personal account management ensures that customers get the high-quality technology and service they deserve,” said Matt Milliron, senior vice president, enterprise and channel sales for Alpheus Communications. “Already, our companies have identified several opportunities, and we’re eager to deliver our sophisticated network solutions to customers of Sandler Partners.”

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications.
