GoDaddy adopts Parallels’ Small Business Panel

Cloud software provider Parallels has seen major success in the past few years as they outdid their competition with new technologies and innovative software but their latest announcement of a partnership with web hosting and domain giant GoDaddy marks a pinnacle in the company’s growth and allows the latter to offer award-winning software to its business customers.

“This has been one of our most successful product releases and delivers profitable services to small businesses. To have such a quick uptake of our product by some of the largest companies in the industry is a testament to how Parallels Small Business Panel fills the growing IT needs of small businesses. Parallels really values partnerships like Go Daddy and is committed to delivering products that enable cloud services providers to move beyond basic hosting services and offer value-added applications and services.”  –  Parallels worldwide service providers division president Jack Zubarev

In a deal that will see Parallels reach nearly eight million additional customers, many of that number representing small businesses, GoDaddy will begin offering their hosting clients Parallels’ Small Business Panel software. Small Business Panel 10.1 is a do-it-yourself control panel aimed at helping small businesses increase productivity through tools aimed at project collaboration, file sharing and general business management. With the ability to add-on services such as SpamAssassin, ColdFusion and Helpdesk to the basic Small Business Panel package, the move represents a new quality product for GoDaddy customers as well as a huge increase of the reach of Parallels. Useful CMS software such as WordPress is also available as an add-on, leaving small businesses with a seemingly endless array of options and abilities.

Joining popular providers like Arsys, Cordero, Host Europe, Layershift, Network Group Europe, ServInt, Softcom, Softlayer and The Planet, GoDaddy has indicated real excitement in offering Small Business Panel to their customer, calling software made by Parallels the perfect fit for small businesses who don’t need the full services of an IT administrator with its easy-to-use and intuitive interface and continued commitment to further development.

In celebration of both its latest growth and its fifth anniversary, Parallels will be holding its annual Parallels Summit in Miami, Florida this month. Running from February 22 to 24, the Summit will bring together the best and brightest in the world of hosting, bring together networking specialists with an emphasis on utilizing cloud-based services to grow businesses into the future.
