These scalable, secure and high-performance deployments leverage the company’s automated architecture, four Saudi Arabia data center locations and private network, and customer-controlled infrastructure management system.
“For some time our customers have used our portfolio of dedicated servers, network resources, and virtualization options to build their own private clouds,” said Shafiq Ur Rehman, CEO at RackHigh. “Now, with RackHigh Saudi Arabia Private Clouds, instead of starting at square one, you can start with your cloud ready for whatever you want to do with it. We’ve built our Private Clouds solution out of our experience creating and managing our own cloud, and our unique capabilities in automating sophisticated deployments. At the push of a button you have a dedicated cloud at your command, with full access and control over every aspect, and the ability to scale infinitely, on demand.”
RackHigh Saudi Arabia Private Clouds enables customers to choose the exact number of physical servers that they need as client hosts and then customize the configuration and resources for those servers as desired.
RackHigh says that within as little as two hours, it automatically provisions the client hosts and installs each host’s hypervisor, provisions the cloud’s management server and installs its management system, and completes network configuration and resource management tasks.
Additional features include on-demand scalability, full management access and control via RackHigh’s portal, API and Apache CloudStack management tools, seamless Saudi deployment with Apache CloudStack zones in each data center controlled from a centralized management server, and RackHigh object storage integration.
RackHigh Saudi Private Clouds will be available starting September 1, 2013, with pricing starting at $1,218 per-month for a base configuration.
The private cloud solution will include one management server, one host server, and associated software licenses.
