Do Business in the Cloud with New VMware-based Service

Posted on 7.01.2012

If you’ve been thinking about moving your business to the cloud, Web hosting provider American Internet Services (AIS) may have just the solution for you with its new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering AIS BusinessCloud1.

Designed with a keen eye on security, performance and redundancy, BusinessCloud1 is based on the popular VMware software suite, which features computing and storage technology from Cisco, Dell, Arista and NetApp. VMware offers AIS extensive functionality and a robust ecosystem of both support and product development, as well as a widespread adoption rate around the industry.

Users will have access to integrated VMware network and storage quality of features that are set to production service standards, meaning network storage will be redundant, diversified and optimized for performance. It also comes with self-healing systems architecture and an automated failover operating system; the AIS regional optical and transit networks provide high-speed network access.

Perhaps the best part of this new service is the variety of ways that a business can employ it. Companies can use BusinessCloud1 as an IT extension to give a direct connection to their current VMware infrastructure to be managed using vCenter. Or, they can use it as a hybrid cloud solution with instant IT scalability, built-in firewalling, a single management console and complete public and private network isolation.

Last, but not least, BusinessCloud1 can be used as a disaster recovery site that mirrors data between sites with full infrastructure duplication.

The AIS BusinessCloud1 IaaS is available as either a pay-as-you-go service or allocated resources basis, and both options come with real-time support and access to the self-provisioning VMware vCloudDirector portal and API.
