Web hosting service provider Phoenix NAP announced on Thursday that its new managed private cloud solution based on VMware vCloud technology has been launched. The company generally offers cloud services, dedicated server hosting, colocation and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions. In the month beginning, Phoenix NAP has launched secured servers, along with colocation services out of phoenix NAP’s data center in Ashburn, Virginia.
“This launch coincides with a growing demand in the market for reducing capital expenditures through virtualization while supplementing it with some level of technology-focused support,” said William Bell, director of cloud services for Phoenix NAP. “It’s perfect for any company that wants to refresh its hardware, virtualize some of its infrastructure, or develop new applications in a VMware-based cloud environment, but may not have the specialized resources to do so.”
As a premier partner within the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), Phoenix NAP can utilize the VMware virtualization solutions in a way that aligns with the business models typical of service and hosting providers which allow its customers to use VMware virtualization solutions, applications and services without any up-front fees. Phoenix NAP is a PCI DSS Validated Service Provider and a SOC Type 2 audited facility.
This new service will be available from the Phoenix NAP’s Phoenix, Ariz. Data center location and according to the clients’ requirement, additional locations will be added and the pricing for the service fixed based on the many small and medium sized business budgets. “We take a consultative approach to everything we do and Managed Private Cloud will reflect that mentality,” said Bell. “We understand that businesses are not the same, and will require cost-effective solutions with varying levels of assistance and support, or even different physical locations for virtualized solutions.”
