Managed VMware hosting lets them turn their managed servers into a fully managed private cloud
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) May 25, 2010
Online Tech, a leading managed data center operator in the Midwest, introduced a fully managed VMware hosting solution today. A cost effective, fully managed virtualization solution, the new offering saves money by reducing physical servers required in the data center, shortening server deployment time and adding flexibility as to meet future IT demands.
The managed VMware hosting service provides the foundation for a fully managed private cloud for Online Tech’s mid-size business clients. Online Tech isn’t selling virtual servers “a slice at a time”, but rather commissioning fully managed, secure stacks of hardware and virtual servers dedicated to individual clients.
“While many start-ups and development teams are testing ‘a slice in the cloud’, most mid-size businesses need to run their production and customer-facing systems with the security and reliability of hardware dedicated to their systems” said Mike Klein, President of Online Tech. “Managed VMware hosting lets them turn their managed servers into a fully managed private cloud – with the flexibility that virtualization offers, on a secure hardware platform that is 100% dedicated to their applications.”
Online Tech is practicing what they preach when it comes to managed VMware hosting. Their entire data center infrastructure has been running on the managed VMware hosting platform for the last 18 months without a single failure or outage.
The managed VMware hosting includes the full VMware licensing, provisioning, 24x7 monitoring, unlimited technical support, patch management, and ongoing around-the-clock management of the physical and virtual servers. Managed VMware hosting is available for managed servers or servers colocated in one of Online Tech’s SAS 70 data centers.
