Many enterprises today are implementing the cloud, or considering shifting to the cloud to gain the benefits of multi-tenant, hosted resources, whether it’s software, platforms or infrastructure.
Cloud data center solutions not only provide results for optimized physical infrastructures, but also enable organizations to be more responsive, improve operational efficiency and increase strategic relevance to their business.
TMCnet was there this week to report on all the latest cloud data center news. Here are a few highlights:
Cbeyond (News - Alert), an IT company founded in 1999, specializes in providing cloud services for approximately 60,000 small and mid-sized businesses (SMB). In order to provide its customers with all-important, secure and easy-to-manage cloud services, Cbeyond has announced the launch of TotalCloud Data Center managed service.
This new service will provide SMBs with dedicated virtual LANs and private firewalls. Businesses will be able to customize the offer to reflect any changes in their needs and requirements – storage needs or security requirements, in particular. Businesses will not be burden with having to manage and provide their own servers or applications, but they will be able to rely on Cbeyond to provide services that fit their particular infrastructure.
