Flexibility and agility—they’re the two attributes of a virtual environment on the VMware® platform that keep businesses functioning at peak capacity. If you’re already using VMware you’ll be pleased to know that iland offers a VMware hybrid cloud, making it possible for you to move your data into the cloud and manage it from the same VMware platform you’re already using. You might be wondering why anyone would want to transition data to a new cloud environment, other than for the simple management of virtual environments. Well, instead of having to buy expensive hardware, licensing, and storage to account for anticipated business growth, you can quickly spin up virtual machines whenever you need them.
Think about it. Overprovisioning for seasonal demands, special projects and even testing and development has slowed down business growth for years. With VMware-based, vCloud Powered services, the time and money you would have spent setting up new servers, SANs, licensing, cooling equipment, etc. could be used for future innovation or other initiatives that could propel your business forward. Better still, you can access all your resources from one, unified platform.
With iland Cloud Services, you can leverage the same security and performance you’ve been using versus having to convert your machines to a proprietary public cloud platform. These attributes are essential to a reliable disaster recovery solution—additionally customers can subscribe to backup offerings, making the recovery from an unplanned disaster easier and more efficient.
With a hybrid cloud, you stay in complete control while enabling a self-service provisioning model for end users. You can set up administrative permissions for others within your organization or integrate your directory services and if you house a portion of your data in the iland cloud, you’ll have greater control over your security and control the properties of the environment locally.
In a nutshell, IT departments and solution providers who are utilizing VMware can feel secure about extending their virtual environments into the cloud with vCloud hosting provider iland, maximizing their existing investments, and even extend their brand by white labeling the iland cloud.
Flexibility and agility. They’re the two attributes essential to a streamlined, cost-conscious, and progressive business.
