NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dimension Data, an ICT services and solutions provider, today announced that Questys Solutions, a provider of document and content management solutions, is using Dimension Data's cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering to deliver its Cloud Solution Suite as a hosted service for customers.
Traditionally, Questys solutions were provided as software hosted and supported by customers within their own data center. By leveraging Dimension Data's public cloud service, Questys is eliminating the need to host the software on premises and reducing the costs associated with servers, backup and other hardware.
"For Questys, seeking out a cloud services partner meant more than identifying a vendor," said Rod Anderson, CEO of Questys Solutions. "We were seeking to transform how we deliver content and document management services to our customers and reduce their cost to adopt our solutions, all while maintaining the high level of service they have come to expect from us."
When Questys evaluated IaaS providers, key considerations included cost, legacy of quality service and SLAs, among other factors. In making their final decision, Questys found Dimension Data's solutions-based approach and competitive pricing to be differentiators from other providers.
"Throughout the process, our technical team found that Dimension Data was exemplary in helping with questions of all aspects – from technical to pricing to the administrative console," said Anderson.
The Cloud Solution Suite offers electronic document and content management, automated business process management and legislative agenda management with secure web access via browser or mobile device.
"Questys Solutions is an ideal example of the benefits that software-based businesses can achieve by leveraging a scalable cloud resource model," said Keao Caindec, chief marketing officer of Dimension Data's Cloud Solutions Business Unit. "By utilizing Dimension Data public cloud services, Questys can realize cost savings and at the same time focus on its strengths in delivering a business-critical product to its customers."
Dimension Data's cloud services are delivered on the company's Managed Cloud Platform™ (MCP), a fully-managed cloud delivery platform. Hosted within a Dimension Data or client data center, the MCP is comprised of cloud infrastructure (servers, storage, networking, virtualization and operating system software) and Dimension Data CloudControl™, a cloud management system that provides operational control and automation of cloud resource provisioning, orchestration, administration, and billing. Dimension Data's public cloud services can be accessed globally via Dimension Data public MCPs in San Jose, Calif. and Ashburn, Va., United States; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Sydney, Australia; Johannesburg, South Africa; and Hong Kong.
