DAILYHOSTNEWS, November 18, 2011- There’s a new cloud offering available and it’s through Phoenix NAP. The data center solutions and colocation provider announced yesterday that its latest service offering – Secured Cloud – is ready to accept sign-ups.
“We are very excited to release Secured Cloud to market,” said Ian McClarty, president of Phoenix NAP. “This public cloud offering we believe is unlike many other solutions in that it combines true enterprise-grade technologies on the back-end with a user interface that is simple enough for non-technical users and robust enough for tech-savvy individuals.”
Secured Cloud utilizes VMware, Cisco Nexus, F5 Networks, and Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) technologies in its fully-featured cloud stack. The highly intuitive user interface (UI) enables rapid creation of virtual machines, simple management of virtual resources, and in-depth reporting of virtual assets, along with chargeback management functionalities, load balancing options, and more.
“The UI is a big part of the experience with cloud solutions. We wanted to make a system that provided all the right functionalities, but did not require advanced IT knowledge. But ease-of-use is only one aspect of our solution. By combining the UI with trusted virtualization technologies, and layering in a pay-as-you-go pricing model, we are establishing a service that allows for any user or business to quickly convert IT capital expenses to operational expenses,” said McClarty.
Phoenix NAP’s Secured Cloud solution can also be completely white labeled to reflect specific company branding or colors.
Phoenix NAP is a PCI DSS Validated Service Provider and a SAS 70 Type II certified facility.
