New cloud partnership for Servers Plus and Vapour

Castleford-headquartered Target Components Ltd has today announced a new partnership with fellow Yorkshire brand Vapour Cloud, as the company gears up for further growth.

New cloud partnership for Servers Plus and Vapour

For over 20 years, the £30m turnover business – that is a Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Fujitsu and Lenovo partner – has supplied hardware and software to resellers throughout the UK. Keen to offer customers an even more rounded solution, it will now provide new cloud services through its enterprise division Servers Plus, to strengthen the company’s portfolio.

The partnership allows Target to deliver a wide range of cloud and hybrid services alongside the extensive range of hardware, and offer clients a solution fully tailored to suit their needs.

Commenting on the new partnership, Servers Plus Commercial Director Jago Packer said: “There are significant advantages associated with the cloud, especially around security and disaster recovery. However, we feel the real beauty is the flexibility it offers our customers – the ability to scale up or down as required and pay for what you need, when you need it.

“As a fully managed service, cloud can take the headache out of IT infrastructure. It was essential to us that we partnered with someone with the best possible cloud network, and after an extensive review we’re delighted to have selected Vapour Cloud.”

Based in Elland and backed by over £4m of equity investment, Vapour Cloud operates from four data centres across the UK. “We chose Vapour because they are experts in cloud computing, knowledgeable and trustworthy,” continues Jago. “Plus their private network (MPLS) ensures Target are offering customers a secure solution which is compliant to the latest GDPR regulations, and fully managed with 99.99% uptime – factors that are imperative in a partner who is going to support our clients.”

Vapour’s CEO Tim Mercer added: “We’re delighted to partner with Target and Servers Plus. They have an extensive customer base of over 2,000 IT resellers across the UK, a reputation in the channel that is second to none, and crucially – like us – they are an extremely customer-focused business.

“What impressed us most was their hunger to help their customers’ businesses grow, and we’re big believers in this collaborative approach to mutual success. We have evidenced how partnerships can add bottom line value to our business, our partners’ organisations and their clients alike. For example, we’ve generated £4m revenue for an existing partner over the past two years, so watch this space for what I’m sure will be a very exciting journey for Target & Servers Plus customers.”

"Were delighted to partner with Target and Servers Plus. They have an extensive customer base of over 2,000 IT resellers across the UK and are an extremely customer-focused business."
