Channel Partners


ASP’s are invited to join the KS Channel Partner Program to supply hosted data center solutions for a variety of global geographic locations and market spaces such as medical, corporate, banking, real estate, legal, law enforcement, corporate services, government, manufacturing and engineering to name a short list.

An ASP is a company that is capable of building and supporting server systems or buying such servers from the VAR channel suppliers. The ASP supplies servers, communications, and hosting solutions to KS clients that are hosted at their facilities. The ASP is capable of selling through a channel and supporting it with proposals, demos, and troubleshooting. The ASP agrees to sell KS hosted products (co-location, shared, and dedicated server based packages) based on the KS data center and hosting pricing tables. Compensation is based on the price set by KS, which includes a separate price for support services. The distinction between an ISP and an ASP is that the ASP provides all client application solutions while the ISP is only permitted to host web-based search solutions on its servers. The ASP is permitted and encouraged to operate as a reseller but has its main role as service provider for KS and the channel.
