the BlueLock CloudSuite, a comprehensive set of cloud computing solutions, tailored to meet the needs of individual applications.
No single cloud computing option will suit all companies. Some require simple cloud computing solutions, while others require complex ones. BlueLock’s CloudSuite is an array of public and private cloud computing solutions, which believes firmly in “no one size fits all.”
BlueLock CloudSuite includes public computing options BlueLock vCloud Express, BlueLock Virtual Cloud Professional and BlueLock Virtual Cloud Enterprise, which offer users a range from self-service all the way to tailored and expertly-managed enterprise environments, where costs are manageable, performance is high, and the architecture sophisticated.
CloudSuite also offers virtual private cloud solutions which offers maximum security, on-premise or off-premise. Each computing solution is based on VMware virtualization technology. This is done in order to ensure compatibility across all VMware platforms inside and outside of BlueLock’s environments.
John Qualls, president and CEO of BlueLock, said: “The BlueLock CloudSuite was developed with the understanding that every application has different needs, so rather than force-fitting your application into a cloud, you can pick and choose the right solution for higher efficiency and performance at the right price.”
Dan Chu, vice president, cloud infrastructure and services, VMware, said that Bluelock exuded efficiency and demonstrated amply its desire to stay ahead of the curve in understanding client needs, by providing innovative solutions for all types of clients.
A quick look at the comprehensive Bluelock Cloud Suite reveals the differences and advantages of every component. The Bluelock vCloud Express is ideal for startup environments and departmental needs. The main features are a quick set-up and self service abilities, wherein testing is possible immediately after log-in. Costs are low and billing is directly linked to a credit card.
The Bluelock Virtual Cloud Professional is well-suited for clients who need a production environment hosted and managed by outside professionals. The additional security features, performance and service provided are germane to important applications.
For government clients and financial services that require strict compliance, performance and disaster recovery needs, BlueLock Virtual Cloud Enterprise offers a resilient and scalable environment designed solely for mission critical applications.
As the name suggests, Bluelock Virtual Private Cloud is a fully managed encapsulated private cloud environment that can be installed either at the user’s data center or inside the Bluelock facility. It is high on performance, security, and dedicated capacity, but has the ability to burst into the BlueLock cloud.
