Infrastructure, co-location and hosting offerings, along with associated consultancy services
Agilisys, a UK based IT and business services provider, has launched Agilisys Cloud Services, a managed Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
The new IaaS services provide a suite of scalable, modular and customisable cloud services including infrastructure, co-location and hosting offerings, along with associated consultancy services, in Agilisys’ dedicated, highly secure, data centres across the UK.
The managed IaaS includes services such as the Cloud Readiness Check, which helps businesses and public sector organisations answer the question, "Are we ready to move to the cloud and will we benefit by doing so?", Agilisys said.
The readiness check evaluates an entity’s cloud initiatives, examining people, processes, architecture and alignment with business goals.
Agilisys Cloud Services will initially include lightly managed IaaS for customers planning, public or private cloud provision, hosted solutions, test and development environments, multi-tenanted cloud apps provision, software as a Service (SaaS), and centralised telephony.
The company said it will be adding further technology services to create a full flexible IaaS suite, which will also offer a range of SLAs to match differing customer requirements.
Agilisys Cloud Services will be led by newly appointed managing director, David Cotterell, who spent nine years with the AIM-listed software testing and quality assurance provider SQS, including five years as a main board director.
David said, "Agilisys is targeting organisations yet to fully exploit the cloud and we are continuing to develop further IaaS-based products for that market, as well as looking at how this technology can support our existing public sector partnerships."
Agilisys CEO Kay Andrews said cloud is seen as a major growth area for Agilisys and given David’s background of successfully building IT businesses we are delighted he is taking this leadership role.
"The cloud market is still relatively immature, but the services are evolving rapidly and are swiftly changing the vendor landscape – as a proven services vendor, Agilisys is determined to play its full part," Andrews said.
