NaviSite, a provider of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting and application services has launched a new cloud-computing platform NaviSite Managed Cloud Services (NaviCloud), based on VMware vSphere4 and vCloud and the Cisco Unified Computing System.
NaviSite said that the NaviCloud, targeted at enterprise IT-hosting and application-service needs, is a customisable platform that adapts to changing customer requirements, enabling businesses to use resources efficiently, while reducing capital and operating costs.
According to NaviSite, the NaviCloud architecture with Intel Nehalem processor-based blades and integrated Fabric Interconnects with 10GbE fabric spans multiple data centres, providing customers with built-in disaster recovery and high availability. It supports self-managed, monitored and fully managed modes, and can be combined with infrastructure services to create hybrid IT environments.
In addition, the NaviCloud brings cloud characteristics to the entire suite of enterprise-hosting and application-management services, and allows enterprises to customize and optimize infrastructure for their application stacks, the company said.
Denis Martin, chief technology officer of NaviSite, said: “NaviCloud is truly a next-generation enterprise-class architecture that addresses the cost, performance and security requirements of larger enterprises. We spent a lot of time with our customers, learning about their cloud hosting requirements and, based on their input, injected a healthy dose of unique, customised development into NaviCloud. The result is a high-performance, scalable platform for delivering cost-efficient, on-demand, usage-based infrastructure and application services.
