Zumasys Delivers VMware & NetApp Cloud Services
Zumasys has achieved both VMware vCloud Power status and the NetApp Gold Service Provider designation.
Specializing in migrating custom software applications to the Cloud Zumasys claims that it is the first provider to achieve this status.
The company is also gone live with production workload at the SuperNAP Data Center in Las Vegas, Nevada and is leveraging NetApp Flash Cache and Cisco Nexus Datacenter Switches. Zumasys has also announced a brand new resource pool-based pricing model that is built on VMware’s vCloud Director architecture. Businesses running custom applications can use this model to provide a more flexible and affordable path to the Cloud.
Often customers have to pay for dedicated servers to run core business applications. Thanks to Zumasys’ Cloud Computing model, they can dynamically scale their applications on a multi-tenanted farm of virtual servers.
“We’re empowering end users to take control of their virtual environment and to embrace hybrid Clouds with vCloud Director,” said Andy Takacs, enterprise team manager and lead Data Center Architect for Zumasys. “We are thrilled with the performance and flexibility of this new design.”
“This is the most significant announcement in the history of our company and I am pleased we are able to continue capitalizing on our early entry into Cloud computing,” said Paul Giobbi, president of Zumasys. “These new service provider relationships and technologies are allowing more companies to leverage our Cloud, while saving money and boosting productivity in the process.”
Zumasys delivers a range of benefits to its customers including resource pool pricing where businesses can pay a set price for a pool of memory, CPU and disk resources and can also spin up as many virtual machines as is required.
It also allows businesses to deploy virtual machines and operating system images with the click of a button and access virtual infrastructure through a user-friendly Web portal.
