NetDepot, a provider of enterprise and infrastructure services, has announced that its servers will now be loaded on request with a single virtual machine of VMware vSphere 4.0 along with 500GB of HP StorageWorks iSCSI SAN enterprise storage.
The company said that its Private Cloud offering does not share physical server hardware with other users. Instead, customers can get privacy, security and high-availability/fault tolerance with NetDepot’s hardware while maintaining the scalability of a cloud environment.
The company claims that the Private Cloud will enable companies to increase their uptime and move to enterprise-level, highly-available offerings while reducing capital and operating costs and simplifying management and administration. By increasing the control over IT infrastructures, customers can choose from almost any operating system, application or hardware for their platform.
Two or more Cloud Servers can form their own virtual private data centre, which ensures high availability and fault tolerance. Customers will have access to a private view of their servers in VMware’s first cloud management tool, vCenter, where they can manage all of their servers using one control panel. The servers are laid out at different locations throughout the data centre, utilising different power sources and ensuring 100% uptime guarantee, the company added.
