Telecommunication solutions provider CHT Global announced the launch of its first North American cloud computing platform, Net2Compute, which leverages Savvis' Symphony Virtual Private Data Center cloud computing technology. Net2Compute provides CHT Global's enterprise customers the ability to self-provision their own VPDC (virtual private data centers) through drag-and-drop options in their own Web interface portal.
The platform also features a cloud computing solution with multi-tiered quality-of-service capabilities and SLA (service-level agreement) policies designed to help enterprises meet the requirements needed to shift to the cloud. The Net2Compute platform was also designed to be optimized for enterprise applications needs, providing customers with the ability to customize their own VPDCs according to their unique requirements just as if they would in a physical data center.
"We are excited to partner with Savvis, the industry's leading cloud infrastructure as a service and Web hosting provider, and to provide our customers with the very best in cloud computing solutions," said Joe Yang, president of CHT Global. "By pairing up Savvis' cloud technology and expertise with CHT Global's existing customer-focused managed service solutions, multinational corporations will now be able to reduce costs, accelerate design and deployment, and scale effortlessly while smoothly making the transition to cloud computing.
The data center services range from virtual server instances, multi-tier storage, firewall security, redundant bandwidth, and load balancing -- all tied in SLA policies. At the same time, provisioning and deployment of a full virtual data center takes an hour, which the company said allows enterprises faster time-to-market and quick modifications for scaling due to usage spikes.
"The biggest concerns of enterprise customers are the security and reliability of cloud computing services," Yang explained. "With Net2Compute, customers can rest assured that both characteristics are realized through the advanced and robust technology that is packaged in enterprise-ready, multi-tiered profile policies. We're bridging the future with today in terms of enterprise solutions."
According to Bryan Doerr, chief technology officer at Savvis, users of VPDC who have tried mass-market cloud solutions will notice significant differences. "Savvis Symphony VPDC is designed to cater specifically to enterprise needs, from security to performance," Doerr said. "We are excited to partner with CHT Global and reach even more end-users with our industry-leading, enterprise-class cloud computing solution."
