Ultra-secure Cloud services for businesses go live
A range of ultra-high security Cloud computing services for businesses – from small firms to large enterprises – goes live today, delivered by data centre operator MigSolv.
The new services provide companies with access to virtual IT systems in MigSolv’s highly secure data centre, without any need to buy and maintain their own equipment.
The services also provide US companies operating in Europe – but without their own European data centres – with a solution to the data transfer restrictions of the European Court of Justice’s recent ‘Safe Harbour’ ruling.
MigSolv’s three new Cloud computing options are:
1. Public Cloud – a flexible, low-cost service designed for small companies. 2. Private Managed Cloud – for larger companies with more demanding data processing requirements. 3. Hybrid Cloud – for companies needing, or who desire, a mixed approach.
MigSolv is providing these Cloud options in addition to its existing ‘colocation’ services, where it houses companies’ own IT equipment within its data centre.
The company is delivering the new services in partnership with Cloud specialist Ormuco – an HP Helion Network Partner with three million customers worldwide. Ormuco has installed its specialised Cloud systems within MigSolv’s data centre.
Alex Rabbetts, CEO of MigSolv, comments: “Our new services provide all the benefits of Cloud computing along with an extremely high level of protection for companies’ business-critical data. Vitally, our Cloud systems are based in our ultra-high security data centre which we’ve sited in Norwich, avoiding the considerable risks facing London-based facilities.”
MigSolv’s Cloud services in more detail:
1. Public Cloud: MigSolv’s Public Cloud service is a flexible, low-cost way for small businesses to access the technology they need. They rent virtual systems based in MigSolv’s data centre, managing their configuration themselves.
To set up a Public Cloud service, companies simply need to create an online profile, select the technology they need and pay by credit card. This gives them immediate control via an online dashboard, enabling them to alter their configuration quickly and easily from any device with an Internet connection. They can even switch the service on and off according to their immediate needs.
Anyone wishing to set up a service or explore the options should visit MigSolv’s Public Cloud portal at cloud.migsolv.com.
2. Private Managed Cloud: This is a large-scale Cloud environment for companies with more complex, demanding data processing and storage needs.
MigSolv provides infrastructure which is dedicated to each customer, enabling them to take advantage of all the benefits Cloud computing offers along with an extremely high level of security.
The service ensures companies’ data is always available and that their systems are able to adapt as they grow, while MigSolv will address any problems that arise to ensure business continuity.
3. Hybrid Cloud: By allowing applications to move between Private and Public Clouds as computing needs and budgets change, MigSolv’s Hybrid Cloud service gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options.
This service is particularly valuable in providing an inexpensive Public Cloud application development environment until applications are ready to be deployed into a secure Private Cloud.
