Anchor, a file sync and share platform for IT professional’s today announced its partnership with Artisan Infrastructure, a wholesale-only infrastructure for cloud solution providers. Anchor's partnership with Artisan allows IT professionals to easily deploy their own private cloud environment on Artisan's enterprise-grade, on-demand platform to offer Dropbox-like file sync, sharing, and collaboration to their users.
"Artisan has built a name for themselves as a trusted cloud infrastructure partner in the channel." said A.K. Kapoor, Co-Founder and Vice President of Sales, Anchor. "With Anchor in the Artisan ecosystem, we're offering more ways for partners to host and deploy their own file sync service while maintaining healthy margins."
Anchor, which offers a highly secure, scalable, and multi-tenant file sync solution for IT professionals, comes in both private cloud and public cloud deployments. The partnership with Artisan will allow for private cloud deployments to be hosted in Artisan's secure cloud, while allowing the IT professional to maintain complete ownership over the data, encryption keys, and performance of the server.
"Artisan provides a great platform for partners who want to host their own Anchor private cloud without the overhead of provisioning and maintaining their own hardware." said Pierre Tapia, Co-Founder and Vice President of Product, Anchor. "It is a perfect solution for partners who want complete ownership of the Anchor server and for those who may already be using Artisan's powerful infrastructure." “An enterprise-rade file sync and share solution is one of the products in highest demand today for the MSP market,” said Woodie Wallace Director of Strategic Alliances at Artisan. “We are truly pleased to have Anchor join our growing list of partners in the Artisan Ecosystem.”
The offering allows partners to benefit from the trusted performance of Artisan's infrastructure while giving them the opportunity to make healthy margins from the end-to-end ownership of the Anchor platform, including choice over the storage backing for their Anchor server.

Installation of the software, which takes ten to fifteen minutes on average, can be deployed on a Windows 2012 or Windows 2008 R2 server.
