The VMware vCloud Suite is an integrated cloud infrastructure solution that simplifies IT operations by providing greater agility, efficiency and intelligent operations management of cloud computing.
The move comes a few days after Phoenix NAP began offering its customers two new cloud features, virtual machine Import/Export and Network Storage.
“This launch coincides with a growing demand in the market for reducing capital expenditures through virtualization while supplementing it with some level of technology-focused support,” said William Bell, director of cloud services for Phoenix NAP. “It’s perfect for any company that wants to refresh its hardware, virtualize some of its infrastructure, or develop new applications in a VMware-based cloud environment, but may not have the specialized resources to do so.”
As a Premier partner within the VMware Service Provider Program, Phoenix NAP uses VMware virtualization solutions in a way that aligns with the business models typical of service and hosting providers.
As a result, Phoenix NAP’s customers are able to use VMware virtualization solutions, applications and services with no up-front costs.
Phoenix NAP managed private cloud uses integrated software technologies, namely the VMware vCloud Suite, while incorporating SLAs and guarantees backed by dedicated technical resources.
The solution will be initially available out of Phoenix NAP’s Phoenix data center location, with plans to add more locations in the future based on customer demand.
The company says it will align the solution’s pricing with many small- and medium business budgets.
Earlier this month, Phoenix NAP launched Secured Servers, along with colocation services, out of Phoenix NAP’s data center in Ashburn, Virginia.
