Helping Zentyal offer an open-source alternative for small businesses

As of last week, we are supporting our Spanish partner, Zentyal, in their provision of software and services to small and medium-sized businesses.

Zentyal distribute an operating system of the same name – and it’s based on Ubuntu. It’s designed to offer small and medium-sized businesses easy, low-maintenance access to all the essential business IT capabilities. Alongside the software itself, they include cloud services and support, providing a one-stop shop to answer their customers’ IT needs. The agreement means we’ll be supporting Zentyal in the delivery of these services to its customers.

Ignacio Correas, CEO of Zentyal, explained: “This agreement allows Zentyal and its partners to provide complete Linux infrastructure solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. Although Linux in the enterprise is nothing new, comparable vendor-backed solutions for SMBs simply didn’t exist until now.”

Andrew Cooper, our EMEA Channel Manager, added: “SMB customers can now benefit from Ubuntu-based solutions that might otherwise would be out of their reach. Zentyal has a great deal of experience in the SMB market and, together with their authorised partners, they’ll do a great job in delivering Ubuntu-based solutions for their customers.”

The worldwide, multi-year agreement aims to address the growing IT needs of the SMB sector during tough economic times, offering easy-to-use Linux IT infrastructure solutions and
services for SMBs. And importantly, it represents the first time Canonical has agreed to provide embedded Ubuntu support for a solution from another open-source vendor.

    How is this agreement different than this partnership agreement announced in November 2011 whichsaw Zentyal become a reseller of Canonical’s Advantage branded support offering?

    Are there new support offerings in play now?
