Designed to accelerate delivery of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS in a single, easy-to-deploy environment
Private cloud offerings provider ScaleMatrix has unveiled a new offering ‘Cloud-in-a-Box’ that is powered by CA 3Tera AppLogic, which allows companies to deliver public, private or hybrid clouds.
The new offering was developed as a joint offering in the US between CA Technologies and ScaleMatrix. It combines the CA 3Tera AppLogic cloud platform with ScaleMatrix’s hardware offerings to deliver on-premise private clouds, helping enterprises and service providers accelerate delivery of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS in a single, easy-to-deploy environment, said the company.
ScaleMatrix said that it has developed a self-contained, air-conditioned rack that can be deployed just about anywhere – inside a traditional data centre environment or in a standard corporate office room or building.
In addition, the fully enclosed rack offers customers protection against common elements such as dust and water, helping to safeguard their critical data, applications and equipment from damage or accidents that may occur during every-day use.
The CA 3Tera AppLogic cloud computing platform enables customers to quickly provision, deploy and manage cloud applications as supporting infrastructure.
The platform also allows users to pull from a catalogue of reusable applications to compose, deploy and manage complex, online applications, reducing time-to-market for new business services.
The Cloud-in-a-Box offering includes: ScaleMatrix Self Contained Rack with Firetrace Fire Suppression; 4 Dell PowerEdge R410 Dual Socket Servers (Westmere) QUAD-CORE 2.4 GHz E5620, 16GB RAM, 1TB HD; 2 Brocade Fastiron FCX-624G Switches; and 8 CA 3Tera AppLogic Licenses.
CA Technologies cloud strategy and solutions senior advisor Wendy Petty said the Cloud in a Box offering from ScaleMatrix reduces the time, costs and risks often associated with moving to a cloud environment.
"With all of the necessary hardware, storage and network switching gear combined with the CA 3Tera AppLogic cloud platform in a single cloud offering, ScaleMatrix is making the cloud more accessible to its SMB and small enterprise customers," Petty said.
