Carpathia’s capabilities include services for network, security, server, storage and backup, with adherence to security and compliance standards.Carpathia, a cloud operator and provider of compliant cloud services and managed hosting, and Digital Realty Trust, a provider of data center and co-location solutions, announced an alliance to deliver customizable data center solutions, compliant cloud services and managed hosting for enterprise and government clients. Carpathia’s capabilities include services for network, security, server, storage and backup, along with adherence to security and compliance standards. Together with Digital Realty, new solutions include modular co-location designs that allow for scalability from a single rack to a private cage or a fully dedicated data center suite, data center strategy guidance and cloud services and managed hosting that meet stringent security and compliance standards, including those for private, community, hybrid and public clouds. "Enterprises see managed hosting as a key component of their growth and management strategies. The lack of time and resources to tailor internal IT systems and support to meet the need for growing and new applications create unhappy internal and external users," Tim Burke, federal cloud product manager at Carpathia, told eWEEK. "This often results in an expensive, slow to implement, and one-size-fits all solution that rarely meets system owner and user expectations. Enterprises see managed hosting services as a way to meet the expectations of their customers while reducing capital expenditures on a flexible and scalable foundation to manage existing, growing and new applications."
Utilizing virtualization technology and software-defined networking and storage advancements, the alliance is designed to deliver efficient environments and expertise across industries for improved IT infrastructure management.
