ICONZ-Webvisions Cloud computing now without term contracts
Posted on 19-Jan-2015 17:01 | Tags Filed under: News



Provider ICONZ-Webvisions is now offering its public cloud without a contracted duration. Cloud computing offers processing power that is scale-able and flexible, allowing organisations to vary their usage. However, the majority of New Zealand-based cloud providers still require customers to commit to a set term.

“Customers shouldn’t have to predict their computational needs, 12 months in advance. That defeats the purpose of cloud migration. The industry’s moving to true pay-as-you-go pricing. This offer lets you plan a month in advance.” says Deidre Steyn, General Manager, Managed Hosting – Australia & New Zealand.

Overseas cloud service providers have offered true on-demand processing without fixed durations for years. However, ICONZ-Webvisions says overseas providers also bring issues worth considering. Data sovereignty and where your data is stored for instance, can be legally problematic. Depending on the amount of data to transfer, the distance and cost to reach overseas servers can be crippling. Data transfers are typically slower, with latency becoming an issue.

Using a local cloud provider enables faster data speeds and customers are also isolated from currency fluctuations.

“Our Pay-As-You-Go Cloud solution is a great product for those considering cloud migration. You effectively trial the cloud, without the commitment.” says Steyn.

ICONZ-Webvision’s product is available on the public cloud, with hardware being shared across several customers. The platform is built on a cluster of 20+ blade servers. ICONZ-Webvisions then manage the provisioning of the cloud servers.

The number of processors, RAM and total storage is based upon pre-defined packages. The packages also include 10 GB of international data, unlimited national data, a secure firewall and monitoring.
