Cloud services provider Bluelock announced on Tuesday that it has opened its new data center in Las Vegas to support its infrastructure as a service delivery within the midsize and large enterprise market.
The new Tier 4 data center is SSAE Type II and SOC 3 compliant, and will serve Bluelock clients in the US and overseas. The facility will improve connectivity and reduce latency of its virtual data center services.
Bluelock is a VMware certified vCloud Datacenter services provider and has been growing at a solid rate, most recently being identified as a “Challenger” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS for its position in serving current market needs, and a track record of successful delivery.
“This top of the line, high-availability data center has abundant capacity to serve our clients in the US with a stronger coast-to-coast presence as well as globally,” Pat O’Day, chief technology officer, Bluelock said in a statement. “As more companies begin to compete in the global marketplace, access to technology resources is critical to efficiently deliver applications and services to a broad customer base.”
Bluelock Virtual Datacenters take minutes to set up through the VMware vCloud Director interface or Bluelock’s managed services team.
Users can choose between a catalog of public and private VM templates, or upload VMs they have running in an existing environment. Capacity can be added and taken away easily, and users pay only for what they use.
According to Bluelock, the solution is built on open standards with Open Virtualization Format packaging for the transport of workloads and interoperability, with additional support for the VMware vCloud API.
Las Vegas is home to quite a few data centers. ViaWest just opened its Tier 4 data center in North Las Vegas this month.
