New Zealand-based Where’s my Server launches two new services to complement its existing Infrastructure as a Service offering. These are Private Cloud, and Datacentre as a Service.
Built on its WMS Foundation service, with segregation from other WMS customers at the network layer, WMS Private Cloud suits larger deployments where scale and demand are leveraged into lower operating costs.
The new WMS Datacentre as a Service (DaaS) includes the benefits of WMS Foundation plus Private Cloud, deployed on dedicated hardware. DaaS suits larger, demanding deployments where dedicated infrastructure is a must.
Both services include WMS's unified "Interface in a browser", offering systems administrators total visibility and cross-platform control of their IT infrastructure. Servers are accessible and manageable even before the operating system and network are started, allowing the the systems administrator to add and remove resources – disk, CPU and RAM – quickly and easily, on the fly or at a scheduled time.
Servers can be backed up while running, suspended, or powered off for rollback and compliance with organisational change-management procedures without requiring the costly intervention of external IT staff.
The platform offers real-time management of entire virtual infrastructure, with integrated billing system to track usage and costs by account or cost centre. It also includes an intuitive easy-to-use web-browser interface that lets systems administrators manage any server at any time, from hardware to software.
WMS’s managed service transforms hosting infrastructure from a capital expense into an operational cost, offering rapid return on investment. It is also possible to bring your own VMware-compatible images to WMS.
