SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- For 11 years, CenterBeam has been a pioneer in deploying hosted IT services on a shared platform, in a secure Tier 1 datacenter, delivered to users located anywhere in the world via the Internet.  Today's release of CenterBeam's Virtual Datacenter cloud offering is a natural progression of what the company has specialized in since its inception.  Now, CenterBeam is allowing its customers to leverage the enterprise-class infrastructure already in place and host a private cloud within CenterBeam's infrastructure.



Similar to the packaging of public utilities such as electricity, CenterBeam's Virtual Datacenter provides on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable resources (i.e. networks, servers, storage, applications and services).  Each customer's resources are completely segmented from other customers and can be provisioned to meet specific business requirements.

"Anything that's not a core competency to a company is an ideal candidate for virtualization," suggests Scott Martin, CIO, Nonni's Food Company.  "Moving to CenterBeam's cloud solution has allowed us to increase IT capacity or add capabilities on-demand without training new personnel or buying software licensing.  And, when an IT issue does occur, we have the benefit of one vendor to call and 24x7 access to subject matter experts."

"Many mid-sized businesses have now reached a tipping point, with their technology infrastructure demanding attention.  With this is a new priority to find IT investment alternatives that don't require the significant CAPEX," explains Shahin Pirooz, CTO, CenterBeam.  "CenterBeam offers a strategy for customers to achieve enterprise-class IT infrastructure and services in a way that maps to their technology and budget priorities.  On-demand services are paid for monthly, making it easy for customers to scale up or down to meet their specific business cycles."

CenterBeam's Virtual Datacenter is available immediately as part of a managed IT service portfolio or individually as a way to extend in-house IT capabilities.  Practical decision points for considering a move to the cloud include:

  • Hardware End of Life (EOL)
  • Collocation or Hosting Contract Renewal
  • Facilities Move
  • Merger or acquisition
  • Server or Website Consolidation
  • Disaster Recovery Requirements
  • Need for High Availability (HA)
