Skokie, Illinois, UNITED STATES

CHICAGO, Feb. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nerdio ( is the creator of Nerdio for Azure, ITaaS automation that enables automated provisioning, management, and optimization of complete IT environments in the Microsoft Cloud. Today, the company announced it has inked a global distribution agreement with SherWeb (, a leading Quebec-based cloud service provider recently named Microsoft Canada’s SMB Partner of the Year. The new partnership will drive the expansion of Nerdio’s international presence via SherWeb’s extensive worldwide network of partners and business customers.

Nerdio for Azure is the first and only definitive path that dramatically reduces the cost, complexity, and risk associated with migrating to the Microsoft Cloud, for both SMBs as well as the CSPs that serve them. It facilitates migration to Azure in a couple of hours with just a few clicks, and streamlines the management of these environments on an ongoing basis.

SherWeb is the largest CSP in Canada, serving over 7,000 channel partners and their dozens of  thousands of end customers in over 100 countries around the world. SherWeb is helping cloud resellers become a one-stop shop for SMBs with a portfolio of best-in-class products, a high-touch partnership approach, and an accessible team of sales, migration, and support experts.

“When we first began investigating new products to expand our Azure offerings, we focused on differentiation as a key factor. As an indirect CSP provider, we set ourselves apart by putting SMBs at the center of our advanced cloud solutions, and delivering unparalleled ease, efficiency, and cost effectiveness to our channel partners and their business customers,” said Mathieu Leblanc, Director of Partner Success at SherWeb. “We immediately recognized that Nerdio for Azure would give us and our partners the necessary competitive edge in the Azure market.”

“The biggest value for our partners and end-customers is the utter ease and rapidity of deployment. It’s astounding that it requires absolutely no Azure expertise to provision a fully functional RDS environment — something that would otherwise necessitate expensive IT resources, not to mention days to weeks to complete,” said Jason Brown, VP Products of SherWeb. “The speed of action in managing IT environments is equally as impressive, as ongoing maintenance represents another big challenge for our customers. Nerdio reduces previously tedious, manual tasks to the simplicity of point-and-click.”

Nerdio’s CEO, Vadim Vladimirskiy, said: “This distribution agreement with SherWeb is an important milestone for us to expand global market access to Nerdio. We’re thrilled by this opportunity to offer Nerdio’s unique IT automation technology to a wider audience of CSPs and SMBs. Our goal has always been to make it simple and painless for more organizations to harness the power of Azure, without any associated burdens. It’s a privilege to share this journey with the SherWeb team, and democratize access to the Microsoft Cloud so that organizations can achieve more.”

“Beyond the obvious value of the product itself, we have been thoroughly impressed by the Nerdio team. They are incredibly attentive to our needs and business objectives, from adapting their primarily reseller-only model to include distribution, to addressing specific pain points within our customer base by customizing permissions and other critical features,” added Maxime Boulanger, Product Manager at SherWeb.
