San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
ScaleMatrix, a leader in Private Cloud hosting technology, today announced an easy to use pricing calculator available directly from the company’s home page. This new tool provides clients with transparent access to dedicated Private Cloud infrastructure pricing. Headquartered in San Diego, the Colocation, Managed Services, and Cloud Hosting firm aims to demystify the process of building and pricing true Private Cloud infrastructure.
In recent years, pricing for Private Cloud solutions has rarely, if ever, been available publicly and confusion regarding the feature sets and the security of data hosted on said solutions has often been suspect. Cloud hosting vendors have long said that true Private Cloud pricing was simply too complex to post, while others promoted Private Cloud solutions, with the services being offered reflecting standard Shared Cloud services. In an effort to help make the transition to true Private Cloud infrastructure simpler for end users, ScaleMatrix has launched the first version of a new web tool designed to provide transparent, real time pricing for dedicated computer, storage, security, and memory resources. With a strong background in data center and computing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), ScaleMatrix’s new pricing tool underpins the company’s commitment to ensuring that Private Cloud offerings should not equate to “secret pricing.”
“This is a game changer for IT decision makers navigating a myriad of cloud hosting providers, and we are thrilled to be the first to offer this true Private Cloud transparent pricing,” said Marc Clark, Sr. Director of Cloud Sales & Business Development. “Clients are used to having access to Public and Shared Cloud pricing, but when the added security and control of a Private Cloud solution is needed, what then? There has been little information available regarding cost structures and the underlying infrastructure configuration for those looking for true secure Private IaaS. ScaleMatrix is committed to providing clients with this transparent information in an effort to help them make informed decisions for their IT needs.”
A common misconception is that Private Cloud costs more than Public or Shared Cloud offerings. A quick look at the ScaleMatrix transparent pricing tool will show that this is simply not the case. ScaleMatrix has leveraged its relationships with hardware and software vendors to be a value leader in the market. ScaleMatrix’s true Private Cloud solutions provide clients with all of the security and control they experience within their own data centers, while providing a cost effective alternative to public and shared cloud solutions.
Considerable technical advantages exist for clients leveraging true Private Cloud infrastructure, when compared to Public and Shared Cloud offers. For starters, the CPU aspect of the ScaleMatrix Private cloud offer is based on physical CPU cores derived from Intel Xeon quad and hex core 2.4 GHz processors with Hyperthreading, not virtual, CPUs that typically run .75GHz to over 1.0GHz slower. Another considerable advantage to the ScaleMatrix Cloud offering is disk I/O. With each Private Cloud consisting of scalable and dedicated hardware, clients do not have to share resources with thousands of other users. ScaleMatrix also offers clients a variety of SATA, SAS or SSD storage options.
Through ScaleMatrix’s transparent pricing tool, IT professionals can better evaluate the benefits and cost of utilizing true dedicated Private Cloud infrastructure, in comparison to commonly known Public or Shared Cloud solutions. Despite the differences in pricing, performance, and service metrics commonly offered by Public and Shared cloud solutions, the advantages of Private Cloud solutions are obvious. The ScaleMatrix transparent pricing tool reduces complexity by placing standard, easy to use metrics right at your fingertips.
Many Public Cloud offerings, such as AWS, Heroku, Engine Yard, Rackspace and Google provide access to transparent pricing based on a number of complex criteria which may not be easy to estimate: number of instances, types of instances, instances per hour, to name just a few. ScaleMatrix Transparent Pricing Tool simplifies this process even further by deriving pricing from three simple metrics: CPU, Memory and Storage.
ScaleMatrix is already a recognized leader in the deployment of Private Cloud solutions leveraging the CA AppLogic Cloud platform. In recent months, the company has begun offering VMware, OpenStack, and platform agnostic Hardware as a Service (HaaS) solutions as part of the ever-growing product portfolio.
With innovation being one of the company’s core tenants, clients can look forward to additional pricing tool enhancements in the coming months. ScaleMatrix plans to provide clients with a granular, full-feature pricing tool. This will enable IT Managers to build a virtual private data center, with resources which are dedicated and private.
