Intermedia (News - Alert), an email hosting provider, recently released a white paper all about the cloud titled, “Not All Clouds are Created Equal.”
The paper highlights the performance, reliability and data protection of Intermedia’s Exchange cloud and why not all clouds are exactly the same. Additionally, in the informative guide the email hosting provider details the three key elements of the company's hosted Exchange offering and explains how these factors are equal parts of both technology and experience.
"The Not All Clouds are Created Equal white paper takes a detailed look at Intermedia's cloud infrastructure and sets a benchmark for how a business-grade cloud needs to be architected," said Jonathan McCormick, COO, Intermedia, in a statement. "Over 50,000 businesses rely on Intermedia's cloud services, and as the largest hosted Exchange provider we understand a company's cloud requirements. Companies looking to move into the cloud can use this white paper to ask potential providers about their cloud infrastructure."
The paper also reviews what to look for not only in a provider, but also in the provider's overall cloud infrastructure: A business-grade hosted solution should minimize network latency and maximize processing capabilities in a transparent manner. For those considering the move to the cloud, the paper discusses the importance of high availability of data in the cloud: While 100 percent uptime in the cloud or on-premise is not realistic, the architecture, data centers and Internet providers that make up a provider's cloud should provide as close to 100 percent uptime as possible.
In related company news, a few weeks back TMCnet had the news that Intermedia had appointed Dr. Prasad Akella as senior vice president of Product Management and Marketing.
