CBTS, a US-based provider of data center and managed services, in partnership with Virtual Blocks, has launched a new utility computing service in the US, allowing customers to provision and manage virtual Windows and Linux servers in a cloud computing environment. The service is branded as the CBTS Virtual Data Center.
According to the company, its customers will be able to provision virtual servers through a standard web portal, specifying CPU, disk, memory, and operating system requirements. Servers are available for use within minutes, allocated from within a resource pool consisting of Sun AMD Servers, Nortel and Cisco Network Switches, and NetApp SAN Disk that are housed in one of the CBTS tire three data centers. Network access is via internet, VPN or MPLS service.
John Burns, president of CBTS, said: As a trusted technology adviser to our customers, CBTS is dedicated to bringing new and innovative solutions to market. The virtual data center unifies our resource pool of secure data centers, scalable computing and networking equipment, and advanced solution development to provide cost savings and competitive advantage to CBTS clients.
