UAE. -- (AETOSWire) -- Pacific Controls, a global provider of end-to-end ICT enabled Managed Services and IOT based converged engineering solutions for buildings and infrastructure projects, has announced a strategic partnership with Chicago-based Qube® to deliver a completely revolutionary approach to technology infrastructure.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Sanjay Nayak, CEO of Pacific Controls, said: “We have been pioneers in providing innovative and disruptive technologies to the market. Today, ICT infrastructure is increasingly being managed across on-premise, co-located and cloud environments. This requires a trusted, flexible and scalable framework that allows for frictionless transition across the environments. We are pleased to leverage Qube’s IT as a System™ approach to launch the first Network-as-a-Service offering in the region”

“Collectively, Pacific Controls and Qube solutions will allow organizations to manage their ICT infrastructure seamlessly, while reducing cost at every stage of the evaluation, configuration, integration, implementation, support, and upgradation cycle” he added.

“UAE is a leader in adopting innovative technology and processes, and at Qube we are proud to bring our IT as a System™ to this region.  The partnership with Pacific Controls is ideal as they have enterprise-level expertise and proven track record.  Together we have an amazing opportunity to help companies leverage the data locked within their devices to create real business value,” said Qube® Founder and CEO, Robert Mueller.

Together, Qube and Pacific Controls bring the benefits of complete end-to-end solutions that include Pacific Controls' proven and revolutionary Galaxy™ IOT platform, world class Tier III Data Centre and extensive Cloud services portfolio.

The joint solutions include connectivity to a limitless array of typically disparate sensors through Galaxy™ gateways, Gbots, WAN connectivity, and security, networking and virtualization infrastructure via the Qube IT as a System™.

Although cloud solutions have seen exponential growth over the last several years, and many businesses are realizing the value of procuring IT solutions as a Service, the approach to on-premise infrastructure has remained relatively unchanged. 

Much of the momentum that is shifting to cloud solutions involves 5 core tenets: Self-Service Access, On-Demand Provisioning, Consumption-based Economics, Elastic Scalability, and Anywhere Access.  Qube believes these benefits of cloud can be applied to the on-premise infrastructure as well, including security, networking, collaboration, and server virtualization and storage. 

This innovative approach allows organizations to achieve the benefits of a cloud model, while still keeping critical portions of their server and storage environment on-premise. 

Qube leverages the Cisco portfolio, including cloud-managed security, networking, wireless, and collaboration solutions, as well as Cisco’s hyper-converged and converged infrastructure solutions.

Together, Pacific Controls and Qube believe an effective technology architecture should incorporate solutions that are designed to work together as a system and should be built around reliable partners to remain sustainable.

Customers can configure Qube through an online Qube Builder on Pacific Controls' Portal, dynamically displaying best practice reference designs, which incorporate years of experience in resource building and innovative solution architecture and consulting expertise. 

Once the order is placed, the logical configuration begins, and the physical assembly of the components occurs.  Out of the box, Qube is fully assembled and configured; the customer simply needs to connect power, internet, and their devices (Plug and Play).  Pacific Controls have incorporated their Galaxy™ gateways and cloud solutions into the Qube Builder, radically simplifying the delivery of typically complex solutions. 

To truly deliver on the benefits of consumption-based approach to technology, Pacific Controls and Qube provide the entire solution inclusive of hardware, licensing, real time support, cloud services, and management on (Subscription Model) a single monthly bill.
