Enterprise-ready vCloud™ Powered services reduce IT complexity, significantly lowers costs, and enables more flexible, agile IT service delivery
San Francisco, CA – September 6, 2011 — FusionStorm — “IT Delivered” — a national provider of IT consulting, technology solutions and cloud/managed services announced today that its IT Xpress Cloud services have received recognition from VMware as vCloud™ Powered services.
FusionStorm is a Premier level VIP VMware Partner and earlier this year launched the IT Xpress Cloud service which is a key ingredient of its “Cloud Anywhere” initiative that delivers private or public cloud solutions how and where customers need them. As a vCloud™ Powered service provider FusionStorm reinforces its promise to offer rapid deployment, broad geographic coverage and the capacity to meet the needs of any size customer. FusionStorm has also announced its IT Xpress DRaaS for VMware offering this week. This new vCloud™ Powered service solution is designed to protect customer applications running on VMware.
All of the FusionStorm’s vCloud™ Powered services offer customers the ability to create hybrid clouds which leverage both internally-hosted and externally-hosted clouds allowing customers to run workloads in the location of their choosing. Hybrid clouds deliver greater business agility and lower the cost of deploying and operating applications. These are hosted Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings, that combine the reliability, performance and scalability of enterprise-class data center infrastructure with the flexibility and economics of cloud computing.
“Our customers increasingly demand IaaS offerings that can support business‐critical workloads in the cloud and leverage their existing IT investments”, says Chris Rogers, General Manager Managed Services for FusionStorm. “We help customers leverage these investments by offering vCloudTM Powered services which ensures that we deliver cloud based IT services with the interoperability, high quality, flexibility and affordability our customers deserve.”
FusionStorm, a SAS-70 Type II certified service provider, plans to offer the vCloudTM Powered services out of multiple data center locations in the U.S. and in Europe.
