By CBR Staff Writer

NaviSite, a provider of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting and application services has launched a new cloud-computing platform NaviSite Managed Cloud Services (NaviCloud), based on VMware vSphere4 and vCloud and the Cisco Unified Computing System.

NaviSite said that the NaviCloud, targeted at enterprise IT-hosting and application-service needs, is a customisable platform that adapts to changing customer requirements, enabling businesses to use resources efficiently, while reducing capital and operating costs.

According to NaviSite, the NaviCloud architecture with Intel Nehalem processor-based blades and integrated Fabric Interconnects with 10GbE fabric spans multiple data centres, providing customers with built-in disaster recovery and high availability. It supports self-managed, monitored and fully managed modes, and can be combined with infrastructure services to create hybrid IT environments.

In addition, the NaviCloud brings cloud characteristics to the entire suite of enterprise-hosting and application-management services, and allows enterprises to customize and optimize infrastructure for their application stacks, the company said.
