Doyenz Joins Vendor-Neutral Program For Benchmarking Service-Enabling Technology Vendors Worldwide

Doyenz, Inc. today announced that it has received accreditation under the MSPAlliance’s (MSPA) Vendor Accreditation Program (VAP). VAP is the first program of its kind, specifically designed by managed service providers (MSPs) as a benchmark for vendors who sell to the MSP community. Vendors who bear the VAP seal have shown they abide by the highest principles of quality in areas such as financial stability, positive channel practices, product research and development, and MSP customer satisfaction.

"The Vendor Accreditation Program is important to MSPs, since companies that receive accreditation have demonstrated their ongoing commitment to the channel,” said Charles Weaver, president of the MSP Alliance. "We are very proud to have Doyenz as a part of this prestigious body of vendors.”

Having recently been named one of the 2010 Emerging Cloud Storage Vendors and one of the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors by CRN, as well as receiving the IDC 2009 award for Excellence in the SMB, Doyenz continues to gain industry recognition for the Doyenz ShadowCloud, a cloud-based managed service platform that enables SMB IT Service Providers to deliver rapid, reliable and affordable business continuity to their SMB clients. Sold exclusively through the SMB channel, the Doyenz ShadowCloud™ takes Microsoft Windows servers offsite where backup images can be reliably restored to provide rapid offsite disaster recovery as a service, or to enable safe testing, patching, upgrading, or migrations in a virtual test lab environment. The Doyenz allows their partners to ensure the continuous availability of their customers’ data and applicationsby creating a replica of the customer’s production infrastructure in the cloud.

“We are pleased to be part of the MSPAlliance Vendor Accreditation Program,” said Ashutosh Tiwary, President and CEO of Doyenz. “We are dedicated to providing our partners with only the best possible experience. By bringing innovative technology to market, we deliver rapid and sustained value for both them and their customers. The ShadowCloud enables our partners lower costs, grow revenues, and improve the quality, reliability and efficiency of IT for their customers. “

VAP was created using a wide base of criteria considered as critical by MSPs when selecting a vendor. Criteria examined during the accreditation process include:

  • Business practices: Focusing on channel development, channel competition safeguards, experience in the managed services industry, etc.
  • Product Roadmap: Examining the vendor's willingness to invest in their products in order to ensure continued relevance for the MSPs on a continued basis.
  • Financial: Examination of financial stability to ensure adequate support of channel initiatives and product development.
  • Client References: Vendor must provide at least three MSP specific client references.
