Gen-i has launched its enhanced ReadyCloud Server, the company's virtual compute and storage product and part of its ReadyCloud Services suite of Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions.
ReadyCloud Services deliver on-demand network-delivered infrastructure with built in management and support. They bring together technology from global leaders and includes VMWare, EMC SAN and IBM host servers to provide clients with a high end service at a very competitive price.
It provides a hosted ICT environment which enables the deployment of highly available, cost effective and agile computing on demand. ReadyCloud Server utilises virtualisation technologies and enables businesses to easily select the virtual servers, storage and software resources they need today, with the flexibility to scale up or down to meet changing requirements.
The suite also includes ReadyCloud Backup, ReadyCloud Mail as a Microsoft Exchange 2010 messaging and cloud collaboration solution, and Safecom, a suite of security-focused solutions that provide effective, robust protection for the IT perimeter.
Leanne Buer, Gen-i Head of Networked ICT Products, says the rollout of new mobile and fibre networks across New Zealand has increased interest in Gen-i’s ReadyCloud solutions as clients look for help to deliver the applications and services that exploit these new capabilities.
She explained that ReadyCloud Server provides businesses with highly reliable cloud capabilities and new self-service and flexible pricing options that offer excellent value for money, in addition to secure integration with existing networks and cloud services.
“ReadyCloud Server now provides a self-service portal that enables clients to easily manage their virtual data centres and flexible pricing bundles so clients only pay for what they need to meet fluctuating business demands. Clients can focus on their core business while benefiting from the increased efficiency, productivity and excellent value that our cloud solution enables,” she said.
“ReadyCloud Server is hosted locally in a world class data centre, which is co-located in Telecom’s Auckland Exchange building, providing clients with the assurance that their infrastructure is resilient, reliable and secure, and supported by staff here in New Zealand,” said Buer. Buer added that ReadyCloud Server securely integrates with existing WAN, internet and other cloud services, to provide a simple and integrated user experience.
