DAILYHOSTNEWS, October 31, 2011 – Internap Network Services Corporation, a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, announced last week its participation in the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) and that its public and private cloud services have achieved VMware vCloud Powered status. As part of the VMware partner ecosystem, Internap delivers public and private cloud services that are VMware vCloud Powered, providing enterprise customers with the benefits of VMware virtualization in a completely managed cloud environment.
VMware’s vCloud initiative enables a powerful, easy-to-use set of cloud computing services that supports the largest set of existing applications, allowing Internap to drive down management and development costs and increase the flexibility of its cloud offerings. Customers can migrate and run virtualized applications on Internap’s cloud platforms immediately, with the same level of security, availability and performance that is expected in an on-premise VMware environment.
“The VMware vCloud Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape,” said Don Schleicher, vice president, service providers, VMware. “We look forward to supporting Internap further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
Internap has two offerings in the market courtesy of VMware’s vCloud Director. Internap’s Virtual Private Cloud service allows customers to reserve compute, memory and storage resources with the flexibility to tailor each virtual machine instance to meet organizational needs. For completely on-demand usage with utility-based billing, Internap’s Custom Public Cloud service allows customers to address fluctuating infrastructure requirements such as prototyping, testing and dynamic application scalability.
“Our cloud services are designed to meet the diverse requirements of enterprise customers today – with multiple public and private options, as well as different infrastructure platforms,” said Paul Carmody, senior vice president of product management and business development at Internap. “Our VMware vCloud Powered services build on the choices we offer our customers and further differentiate our IT Infrastructure portfolio, which is backed by a performance-optimized network, global footprint and award-winning customer service.”
Internap provides intelligent IT Infrastructure services that enable its customers to focus on their core business, improve service levels, and lower the cost of IT operations. Its enterprise IP, CDN, colocation, managed hosting and cloud solutions are differentiated by unparalleled levels of performance, availability and support.
