RackForce Delivers Cloud-Based Communications Solution Powered By Mitel

KELOWNA, British Columbia and OTTAWA, Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Building on its highly reliable infrastructure and ICT services, RackForce Networks has partnered with Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) to offer cloud-based communications and collaboration services to address the unique requirements of private business and public sector organizations in Canada. Powered by Mitel, the new offering enables RackForce to extend a wide range of communications services to its own customer base via the cloud and also offer a white label cloud solution to resellers and service providers to brand and market as their own.

RackForce is the largest VMWare Service Provider Partner (VSPP) in Canada and is already working with several resellers to white label the communications solution. The RackForce Mitel cloud-based communications service is available September 1, 2013.

With strategically located data centers across Canada and a resilient high capacity 10Gbps private IP network, RackForce provides secure hybrid cloud services, or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). By teaming with Mitel, RackForce brings enterprise-class, cloud-based unified communications services to Canadian businesses, from 25 to 65,000 or more employees.

"We researched a number of unified communications products before we selected Mitel's MiCollab and MiVoice Business platforms, fully leveraging the virtualization advantages for cloud solutions. No other product compares in feature set or is so ideally suited to our massively scalable VMware cloud infrastructure. MiCollab and MiVoice Business support up to 250 end users on a single VMware vApp, plus the solution will allow us to host large enterprise companies that have 65,000 or more end users with no change in the management systems or software code. That is a great value proposition for growing companies or public sector organizations that need advanced communication capabilities and the ability to grow or shrink communication services on demand," said Tim Dufour, President and CEO, RackForce Networks.
