MSPAlliance launches first vendor accreditation program

As the MSPAlliance kicked off its fall managed services conference in San Jose, Calif., the organization announced the launch of its vendor accreditation program (VAP) for the managed services industry.

Designed by MSPs as a benchmark for vendors who sell to the MSP community, vendors that earn the VAP seal will have shown that they have positive channel practices, product research and development, financial stability and MSP customer satisfaction.   

“It is a benchmark system for MSPs to evaluate vendors,” said Charles Weaver, president of the MSPAlliance. “Vendors entering the program must have at least three MSP specific references and it’s basically a seal of approval for those vendors who have a specific interest in selling to the managed services global community,” Weaver added.   

Among those that have received accreditation under the new program are: Intel, SilverBack/Dell, Asigra, Untangle, XRoads Networks, LiveCargo and N-able.

"Cloud testing is a step by step process and the phases involved in Cloud testing are-
• Developing user Scenario - First phase involves developing user scenarios that are created as per the system requirements.
• Design Test Cases – In this phase the resulting data of first phase is gathered and test cases are designed.
• Select Cloud Service Provider – To access cloud utilities, stakeholders choose cloud platform vendors such as, Google, Rackspace, etc.
• Setup Infrastructure – System specification is provided in this phase to setup its infrastructure.
• Leverage Cloud Servers – Then cloud is leveraged by the service provider for performance testing and various other types of testing like functional, security, localization etc.
• Start Testing – After all the setup, actual testing starts and upon its completion, results and analytics are handed over to the client.
• Monitor Testing Goals – In this phase, team analyzes the efficiency of application under Load/Stress and their complete results observed during the testing process.
• Deliver Results – End result of all testing is provided to the client by the cloud providers with complete analysis."
