PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — MegaPath Corporation, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security, and hosted IT services in North America, today announced new enterprise, private and hybrid cloud hosting solutions that provide customers with a cost-effective virtualization environment for hosting applications, data and storage. Powered by VMware’s vCloud platform, MegaPath’s behind-the-firewall Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering provides enterprises and SMBs reliable and redundant cloud solution.
“Built on MegaPath’s Secure to the Core network, our new cloud hosting solutions are designed to simplify a business’ transition to the cloud,” said Greg Davis, Vice President of Cloud Services, MegaPath. “Customers who seek a faster way to grow their business without additional capital investments, or lack the IT resources to address security compliance issues, have a partner in MegaPath.”
Customers can leverage MegaPath’s nationwide MPLS network to gain access to its scalable cloud infrastructure, which includes the following options for businesses:
- Enterprise Cloud – Based on a VMware powered multi-tenant platform that can be fully or self managed based on customers’ specific needs, Enterprise Cloud enables organizations to offload their IT infrastructure to a trusted partner. Customers can leverage dedicated resource pools that can be scaled up or down to meet their cyclical business needs to ensure they have the required computing resources whenever they need them.
- Private Cloud – Providing a customer with its own VMware-based cloud infrastructure, MegaPath’s Private Cloud service offers scalable and flexible hosting options combined with the highest levels of security. Customers can use Private Cloud to replace legacy dedicated servers and save the associated space, power and maintenance costs, or use VMware’s Site Recovery Manager (SRM) to provide a Disaster Recovery site for their internal VMware-based solution.
- Hybrid Cloud – For customers transitioning to the cloud, MegaPath offers both dedicated hosting and co-location options with servers, storage, firewalls and load-balancing equipment that can be used as a standalone service or part of a hybrid enterprise or private cloud solution.
MegaPath Cloud Hosting includes support of a wide selection of Windows and Linux operating systems (OS) and managed services, such as SQL/MySQL databases, Anti-Virus, Data Backup, SSL Certificates and Proactive performance monitoring, analytics and alert notifications. The solutions are connected to MegaPath’s OC-192 backbone, resulting in superior performance and traffic control. In addition, the company’s datacenters are SAS 70 Type II and SSAE 16 compliant with redundant power and cooling systems, state-of-the-art fire suppression and security systems, including biometric scanning, video surveillance and 24/7 security staff. Each cloud hosting option can be fully managed or self managed using VMware vCloud Director.
