AVANT and LightEdge Join Forces to Offer Compliant Cloud Solutions to Underserved Markets

Here’s a cloud services equation:

A strong channel network plus a portfolio of secure and compliant services (in the case of today’s news) equals a partnership poised to address today’s progressively advanced challenges businesses face amidst professional digital landscapes.

Okay, this isn’t a traditional equation, but it works when applied to the capabilities of AVANT and LightEdge (News - Alert) respectively, as AVANT Vice President of Vendor Engagement Samantha Zuniga stated.

“By working as a team,” Zuniga added, “we can do even more to help drive excellent outcomes for our clients.”

So, that’s precisely how the groundwork has been laid; AVANT and LightEdge officially formed a strategic partnership, with AVANT Communications (News - Alert) specifically driving the digital transformation leg of their journey. Together, the two are focusing on delivering enhanced enterprise-grade solutions to historically underserved markets, particularly businesses within said markets that face critical cloud-centric challenges as the tech of today changes as rapidly as it does.

Moreover, this partnership not only expands AVANT’s total addressable market via the offer of compliant Tier III facilities to “underserved Tier II and III geographical markets for production and disaster recovery workloads,” as an AVANT representative wrote, but it also highlights the successes that LightEdge is capable of, given the fact that its team just experienced 100% year-over-year growth, per a report from earlier this summer.

"By drawing from both companies' expertise and resources,” affirmed Jim Masterson, CEO of LightEdge, “LightEdge and AVANT can provide truly better collective solutions for businesses across industries that demand the highest levels of availability, security, and performance. Enterprises in cities such as Des Moines, Omaha, and even Phoenix need competitive solutions to navigate the increasingly complex digital world. This strategic alliance gives LightEdge one more tool for offering clients innovative solutions tailored to their unique needs."
